JHENE AIKO DENIES CHEATING ON HER EX WITH BIG SEANFebruary 13, 2018
During a BBC Radio interview, the 29-year-old said she and the rapper first went on a platonic date years before they began a romantic relationship.
“The year that my brother passed, I had just met [Sean],” 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…scandalous! Just as a friend!”
Aiko says she let her estranged boyfriend know she was hanging out with Big Sean as courtesy and because she had no intentions of being more than friends with him.
“I mean, I had never been courtside to a game,” she adeded. “And he’s cool. So, I told my boyfriend I’m gonna go to this game…me and my boyfriend were splitting up, it was, like, bad between us…I wasn’t gonna do anything with Sean or be disrespectful.”
Aiko said she soon found out her ex was secretly married to another woman so she ended the relationship.

Regardless, the R&B singer insists she and Big Sean did not hook up that first night.
“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***ing, kissing, hand holding or sexting that followed.”
Aiko and Big Sean have been dating since 2016, shortly after she split from husband Dot da Genius.
