American singer Jhene Aiko, who was once married to her estranged Nigerian husband –producer Oladipo Omisore aka Dot Da Genius before opting for divorce, although she claimed that he was abusive to her before moving on to dating Big Sean, has dropped a new revelation.
In her interview with BBC Radio 1Xtra, Jhene Aiko 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.”
The Trip songstress went on to disclose that the the instance above, coincided with the first wave of rumors linking her romantically with Big Sean. She 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, creating the schism that led to their split.
However Jhene Aiko who was ready to explore a relationship with Big Sean then, couldn’t have him because he was already in a relationship with his ex-fiancee Naya Rivera.
“When I came around, I was like, ‘Okay, let’s see what you’re talking about,’ he had a girlfriend,” she added. “I took too long. I was like, ‘That’s cool. We’re still friends.’ We were performing together still and recording and all that.”
Sean would go on to date Ariana Grande and Jhene would go on to marry Dot da Genius before the couple’s relationship actualized.
On if Sean eats the booty like groceries, Jhene Aiko said she’s not really down with that.
“Contrary to popular belief, because I sang that, I don’t like that,” she explained. “It was like a joke to me. It was funny and it rhymed with ‘posed to be” she said.
