“I am dating,” she said. “And…I’m not looking for anything. I’m a say I’m not looking. I just feel like…I am dating and I’m open and I feel like what I am hoping to experience is just a great exchange of energy with somebody that feels different and I’ll know it when I feel it. But that’s just where I’m at with it.”

“I’m not looking for anything,” she continued. “I don’t have a particular type. I’m just enjoying life and exchanging energy and enjoying company. And that’s it. And when I need what I need when I need it, I get what I need when I need it! Keep it pushin’ [laughs]. That’s where I’m at.”

Recently on Jones got on Instagram Live and spoke about people who have allegedly been talking about her relationships. She then tied it to race.

“People don’t want me to be Black because they’re just so made that certain people talk to me and they’re like, ‘She’s not Black. We have to create this scenario that she’s an exotic cause guys just literally should not like her,” she said, as reported MadameNoire.

She went on to say that men are attracted to her because of her energy. ‘No guys like me, sweetheart,” she continued. “The reason that they don’t like you is because you’re negative and because you’re nasty.”

“You’re a dumb b***h, and you just don’t know how to let go of the anger and emotions,” she said in reference to someone. “But if you can actually be a nice person and have great energy, guys will gravitate towards you. You wonder why guys don’t gravitate towards you and you wonder why you can watch my stories and see my stories and be like, ‘Wow, how can these people…’ It’s because I’m a great, dope person.”
