Jhené Aiko Responds To "Gossip" Claiming She Cheated With Big Sean

The Def Jam artist addresses her critics.

(AllHipHop News) Jhené Aiko found herself as the target of internet scorn following an interview she did with BBC Radio. During the conversation, the "Sativa" singer admitted she went on a platonic date with Big Sean while she was still in a relationship with her then-boyfriend.

Some social media users took those comments as Aiko admitting she cheated on her ex-husband Oladipo "Dot Da Genius" Omishore with Sean. In a lengthy Twitter response, the Los Angeles songstress insisted the situation took place before her marriage with Dot Da Genius and she was not intimate with Big Sean at that time.

maybe because i was home schooled (s/o to City of Angels) i never understood the concept of "gossip"... definitely seems like a high school activity... with that being said... i saw a negative spirited tweet about myself, with lots of retweets and likes... based on one QUOTE from a FULL interview that was about ONE MOMENT in my life in which i did nothing but go to a basketball game lol... this quote has turned into gossip because of speculation... before u respond, continue to read. yes i do have time today. in 2012 i was in a relationship w/someone who was [secretly] still married to his baby's mother the while hear and a half we were together... this person was not Dot. the whole year and a half we were together* found out and we began to [separate]... he moved out of my apt, we stopped speaking... and then i went to basketball game w/ a friend. even tho we [weren't] speaking, i called my then boyfriend and let him know i was going because [I'm] considerate lol. it was a cool game! lots of laughs, we drank beer... and this last part may upset many of u... but after the game... i went home... there was no sucking, f-cking, kissing, hand holding or sexting that followed. i went on to lose my brother 2 months after that basketball game. i remained single for awhile and decided to focus on my Nami and recording my ep "sail out" & album "souled out" ... and sorry to [disappoint] yet again, but me and [Sean] remained platonic friends through out. the rest of the story can be heard on "Trip" the album lol. for an in depth look u can also pick up "2fish" the poetry book lol. it's been my pleasure sharing with u guys!! but let's try in 2018 to gossip less and talk and listen to eachother more!! it would do a world of wonders for the entire human race.

Aiko is now publicly dating Big Sean. The couple also performs as a duo under the name Twenty88, and their 2016 self-titled debut project was a fantasy effort that covered relationships, sex, and more.
