Rumors surface that Megan Thee Stallion is dating Moneybagg Yo

Rumors started in May of 2019  after Yo was spotted in several of Stallion’s Instagram Live videos. And, he added fire to those rumors when he made Stallion his #WCW in this Instagram post.

Stallion responded by posting a meme on her InstaStory that read: “You can have a hot girl summer and still have a man on the side….who said you had to choose?”

Megan Thee Stallion fans are not happy with the Moneybagg Yo dating rumors

Fans were not impressed by Meg’s choice in a new boyfriend. 

For one, “The Big Ole Freak” rapper had urged young women to live their best lives with her “Hot Girl Summer” mantra and felt betrayed that she was now in a relationship.

Fans were also critical of Yo’s lifestyle. He is a father of seven and has children with four different women.

There was even an issue with on of Yo’s baby mamas on social media after finding out that he was dating Stallion.

Stallion apparently does not care about the baggage. “I don’t want kids,” she replied in her Instagram comments to a fan who suggested that she not to have the rapper’s eighth child. 

Stallion makes it official

We didn’t have to wait too long for Stallion to confirm that she and Yo were a couple. In July 2019, the 24-year-old publicly claimed her new “hot boy” on Instagram. Yo followed with the same photo and captioned it, “Hot Boy Shxt.”

While some fans were against their relationship in the beginning, others showed their support.

One fan commented: “Well OK hotness on 1000.”Another followed up with: “Period sis! Let em tf know.” A third chimed in: “Here for it.”

The two signified their relationship even further by performing together in Philadelphia’s Class Of Festival in August.
