AceShowbiz - Ella Mai is trending on Twitter after she sparked rumors that she is dating NBA player Jayson Tatum. Fans were shocked after the "Boo'd Up" songstress and the Boston Celtics star were spotted attending a party together.
The duo was caught on camera at Michael Rubin's 4th of July party, looking picture-perfect in their all-white fits. Shortly after a video from the event hit the Internet, fans raised their eyebrows, wondering whether they're actually dating.
"Two things," one Twitter user wrote after seeing the Michael party clip that's been circulating online. "I don't think I've ever seen a picture of Travis Scott (II) smiling while not hiding his face. Also Jayson Tatum and Ella Mai for real a couple? I thought it was just a rumour."
Others expressed their discontent at seeing their celebrity crush no longer on the market. "I'm really gonna dedicate my life to hating on Jayson Tatum," someone vented. "You couldn't be like the rest of these NBA players and f**k IG models? You had to f**k with Ella Mai?????"
"Not jayson tatum and ella mai being back together after that album [crying emoji] STAND UP," someone else tweeted. Another penned, "They said Ella Mai & Jayson Tatum been dating since 2019!" with a separate Twitter user adding, "Jayson Tatum and Ella Mai been together since 2019 wow who knew."
While seeing Ella and Jayson together was shocking to some, others already knew that the pair have been romantically linked on and off for years. In May, Clutch Points reported that they're an item, although the couple seems to enjoy keeping the intimate details of their life together on the low. The site also added that Jayson's teammate Jaylen Brown is dating Ella's close friend and R&B singer H.E.R. They reportedly had some "double dates."
In 2019, Ella Mai was caught shooting her shot at Jayson. After the 24-year-old basketball player posted a photo of him with a caption that read, "All Star year," the 27-year-old R&B singer simply left eyes emoji in the comment section.
