AceShowbiz - Even though Naomi Osaka looked fierce during the controversial final of U.S. Open, she could get shy too when talking about her crush. The Japanese tennis player was so embarrassed that she wanted to leave Earth after revealing that she took a liking on Michael B. Jordan.
During her recent appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", Naomi was asked by host Ellen DeGeneres about her celebrity crush. The former seemed reluctant at first, but after being pressed by the comedianne, she finally told her that "he's the villain in 'Black Panther'."
Hearing her answer, an excited Ellen immediately took a selfie with the champion and sent it to Michael in an attempt to set them up. Naomi was definitely embarrassed by the whole situation and begged the host not to send it. However, it only made Ellen get more excited. "I'm just trying to help," she said, to which Naomi responded, "You're stressing me out. I'm too young to be stressed out like this."
Ellen then posted their selfie on her Twitter account, and Naomi hilariously reacted, "Ok, it's time for me to leave this planet. Embarrassment level has reached critical stage." She also added three rocket emojis. Despite her embarrassment, Naomi got a sweet response from Michael himself after Ellen texted him about the athlete.

In a video which Ellen shared on the micro-blogging site, the "Creed II" star could be heard saying, "I wanted to send my love and support and just say congratulations, it's a big moment for you." He continued, "The way you carried yourself with such humility and grace, it's really amazing to see. You're setting an amazing example for the little boys and girls that are looking up to you."
"A lot of times you're on this journey, and a lot people don't see the process, they only see the end results," Michael added. "Just know all the hard work, the blood, sweet and tears you've put into your sport, people are finally being able to see. That's a big thing to be proud of... Keep being great, everybody is watching now. Me too."
