AceShowbiz - Latto (Mulatto) has left fans convinced that she and 21 Savage are indeed an item. The "Big Energy" femcee added fuel to their romance rumors after she was photographed sporting a new tattoo behind her right ear.
The body art, which was written in red ink, spelled out "Sheyaa". It is 21 Savage's real name, Sheyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph. The two, however, have yet to confirm whether they're in a romantic relationship.
The dating speculations between Latto and 21 Savage first emerged in December 2020. At that time, the rap stars let out some pictures from their vacation in Puerto Rico. Although they didn't post each other's pictures on their respective Instagram pages, fans believed that they were on a trip together.
The "Queen of Da Souf" artist, however, was quick to shut down the romance rumors. When speaking to Wild 94.1 in January 2021, she insisted that her relationship with the London-born rapper was strictly professional.
"No," Latto said when asked whether she's dating 21. "It's videos on YouTube of me performing with him at [Atlanta nightclub] Palace. It be real respect."
In December 2022, 21 Savage made it clear that he doesn't have a "celebrity girlfriend" He said during a Clubhouse chat session, "I don't do all the antics and s**t. I don't got a celebrity girlfriend." Seemingly noticing the emcee's statement, Latto hit the unfollow button on his Instagram account.
Upon learning of the news, Internet users had mixed reactions to Latto's social media activity as some people clowned her. "Awwww he hurt your feelings .. nobody told you to fwh in the first place you knew he's married so yes he can keep his USA citizenship that's why y'all can't come out in public or he will get deported," one person mocked Latto. One user, meanwhile, believed it was all trick to further hide their romance as saying, "He told her to unfollow him because it's too hot now."
