Singer, Jhene Aiko was a guest on BBC Radio 1Xtra Breakfast show with Dotty. During the interview she revealed how her relationship with rapper, Big Sean, came to be.
During the discussion, Jhene opened up about the timeline of events that led to their union as we know it, dating their friendship as far back as 2012 when they first began collaborating musically.
“The year that my brother passed, I had just met him,” she explained “And we worked on “Beware” and “I’m Gonna Be”. He wanted to take me out on a date. I had a boyfriend, but I still went…just as a friend.
“I mean, I had never been courtside to a game,” she jokingly added. “And he’s cool. So, I told my boyfriend I’m gonna go to this game.”
Jhene would break up with her boyfriend shortly after, but not because of the rapper, but rather because her boyfriend at the time was secretly married eventually leading to their split.
She went on to add that once she was ready to explore a relationship with Sean the first time around, the Double or Nothing rapper was already in a relationship, likely with his ex-fieancee Naya Rivera. As we all know, Sean would go on to date Ariana Grande and Jhene would go on to marry Dot da Genius before the couple’s relationship actualized.
