AceShowbiz - Kehlani and 070 Shake are letting their feelings be known publicly. Months after sparking dating rumors, the singer/songwriter and the rapper have confirmed that they are an item with an onstage kiss.
At one of 070 Shake's recent shows, Kehlani surprised her girlfriend by showing up onstage unannounced. In a clip which has gone viral, the 27-year-old clearly caught the rapper off guard when she spoke something on the mic.
070 Shake looked back seemingly to see where the voice was coming from and she noticed Kehlani excitedly ran to her. The "Lose My Cool" rhymer couldn't hide her happiness as she smiled widely before the two shared smooches while the audience screamed in excitement.
Kehlani and 070 Shake first sparked dating rumors last year, months after she came out as lesbian in April 2021. In October, the two were spotted attending the Bottega Veneta fashion show in Detroit together. The duo were seen wearing matching black ensembles as they sat in the front row. In one photo surfacing online, the former Poplyfe member put her hand on the top of her companion's arm.
They fueled the speculation as Kehlani posted a cozying-up picture on her Instagram Story later in the same month. In the black-and-white snap, the "Guilty Conscience" songstress was seen putting her tongue on Kehlani's face while they posed in front of a mirror.
Her personal life aside, Kehlani recently slammed "Morning Hustle" co-hosts Headkrack and Lore'l for a "cringey" interview and "invasive" line of questioning. At the beginning of the interview, Headkrack introduced the guest as saying, "They are here. And they is she, and she is with us. She go by the name of Kehlani." The radio host seemed to be referencing the "Nights Like This" hitmaker's gender pronouns, which are she and they.
Later, Lore'l asked Kehlani if fellow musician SZA, with whom she was previously rumored to be dating, was her romantic "type." Kehlani replied she doesn't have a type, but is attracted to people who are "beautiful inside and out." Lore'l then joked that Kehlani wouldn't be "scissoring with SZA." Kehlani looked uncomfortable as she kept a straight face.
Kehlani later took to her Instagram Story to express her rage. "i have kept it calm, collected, mature in the face of blatant disrespect when i could've went off. i finished interviews strong while being poked and prodded at," she wrote in a since-deleted post.
"if you know me you know i'm high bright energy until f— with!" she added in a separate Story. "stretching this situation out for clout when it's evident i was energetically RESPONDING to what was being thrown at me, and still ... was quiet, short & protective of my energy. y'all need this tho i get it. gotta let thirsty people who have to be thirsty for a living ... be thirsty... for their living ... god bless you ... & don'tplaywitme."
