It’s no secret that Jhene Aiko loves Big Sean. Just last week, she posted a sexually explicit comment on one his IG photos. But their story on how they met has largely been secretive until now.
In a candid interview with BBC Radio 1Xtra, Aiko opens up about their relationship and some the complications between them before they hooked up.
“We became friends the year that my brother passed,” she said. “I had just met him 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," she recalls. "I had never been courtside to a game and he’s cool. I told my boyfriend ‘I’m gonna go to this game.'”
Subsequently, her relationship with the ex fizzled after she discovered that he was secretly married to his baby mother. When she tried to holler at Big Sean, he was already in another relationship, much to her chagrin.
“I took too long. I was like, ‘That’s cool. We’re still friends,'" she said. "We were performing together still and recording and all that.”
Eventually, they hooked up and they have been happy ever since. When pressed about how long they have been together, Aiko wouldn't give a definitive answer.
Interestingly, when asked if Sean eats the booty like groceries, she gave a surprising answer. “Contrary to popular belief, because I sang that, I don’t like that,” she said. “It was like a joke to me. It was funny and it rhymed with ‘posed to be.”
"It's not required for me]," she added. "I don't like butt play at all."
Backdoor games aside, you can currently see Jhene Aiko in her futuristic video for "Sativa" featuring Rae Sremmurd.
