AceShowbiz - Lil Duval has clarified his tweet about Chloe Bailey. The 43-year-old comedian set Twitter on frenzy after he took to his account to ask his followers about how old the one-half of Chloe X Halle is on Sunday, March 21.
"How old is that Chloe girl again?" so Duval wrote. Some people were not comfortable with the question considering the age gap between him and the 22-year-old singer. "the fact that you called her a girl instead of a woman means you know she's too young for you," one user noted.
"Bruh... here's a little advice. If you think she's old enough for you then refer to her as a woman. If you view her as a girl then inquiring about her probably is not in her or your best interest, because it makes your intentions look suspect," another fan wrote in a reply to him. "If he tweets this to the public imagine what he does in private," someone else said.
Noticing how people misinterpreted his tweet, Duval was quick to offer explanation. "I'm asking for my nephew," so he clarified before adding multiple laughing-and-crying emojis.
Still, that didn't stop people from trolling Duval. "There is a height requirement too," one person wrote, mocking his height as people claimed that Duval is 5'2". "What nephew ? If he look like you & the same size she's definitely not interested," another person said. Another comment read, "Uncle Duval please sign out! Power down your devices and get some rest."
Others, meanwhile, didn't buy Duval's words. "He knows damn well he ain't asking for his nephew," one user said. Calling him a "predator," one person commented, "Predator eyes . Yea she's of age but wayyyyyy younger than you old man." A user reminded him that Chloe is "about 21 years younger than you."
Chloe, meanwhile, has yet to comment on the matter.
