Dominique Armani Jones, known professionally as Lil Baby, is an American rapper. He rose to mainstream fame in 2017 following the release of his mixtape Perfect Timing. His debut studio album, Harder Than Ever, spawned the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 single “Yes Indeed”.
Chinese Kitty is a Chinese-Guyanese socialite, brand ambassador, and rapper, originally from Queens, New York. She is the daughter of Chinese Nicky.
For a while there it seemed as though Lil Baby and his child’s mother, Jayda Cheaves, would be on-again-off-again for the rest of time, but now that he’s released a new album, it looks like the 27-year-old is moving on with a new woman, Chinese Kitty too.
Are Lil Baby and Chinese Kitty dating?
Over the weekend, a clip of the My Turn artist out on what looks like a bowling date with Taylor Hing – better known to the world as recording artist Chinese Kitty – surfaced online, causing fans to speculate that the two could be boo’d up for the impending cuffing season.
In the video, which was briefly posted and then later removed from Kitty’s Instagram Story, she can be seen approaching the lane to throw her ball. As she waits for the results of her roll, the camera pans over to show Baby watching on from the sidelines in a glowing white shirt.
As Hing turns back toward the camera, the rumoured lovers can be seen getting close and appearing to share a smile for only a brief moment as they prepared to continue the game.
It turns out the rappers are not seriously romantically linked, and nor are they getting to know each other at the moment. It’s no secret that the last time a woman posted Baby without his permission, she ended up getting shaded in two separate songs on his expected-to-be No. 1 album.
Chinese Kitty addressed Lil Baby’s dating rumors and denied their romance after Baby seemingly shaded her from posting him on her Story.
Not long after the footage began circulating, viewers speculated that it could land the Guyana-born songstress in trouble with her apparent new man, especially considering he seemingly called Saweetie out for similarly posting him without his permission on her own IG.
As fate would have it, Baby did appear to respond – either that or he was simply promoting his recently arrived It’s Only Me album, specifically “Not Finished” on which he raps, “She post a picture without my permission, got me in some shit, man, these women is wild / She f*ckin’ niggas, but think I don’t know, that shit really a joke man, lil’ mama’s a clown.”
Not long after that post landed on blogs like The Shade Room, Kitty hopped onto her own Story to shut down any speculation about her and the Atlanta-born rapper.
“Lol ain’t nothing going on but some innocent bowling at his album release party,” she wrote while reposting the initial flirtatious-but-edited clip. “Smh. The editing for the narrative is crazy.”
While the “LIT BITCH” artist has certainly done her part to clear her name, followers down in the comment section aren’t exactly convinced. “Chile, you know what you were doing,” one user wrote, seemingly speaking on Kitty’s decision to post Baby on her IG in the first place.
“Even still why not just ask if he coom with being posted?!” someone else pondered. “I ain’t famous and still ask my friends if they’re cool with me posting certain things of them.”
Elsewhere in the news, the father of two has been going viral for hilariously turning away a fan that attempted to perform for him during a meet and greet in Atlanta.
TikToker @harry.daniels approached Lil Baby at his event, and proceeded to poorly sing Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License,” earning an unimpressed reaction from the rapper – check it out in the video below,
