A report from The Jasmine Brand surfaced claiming that he and former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger were flirting at an Oscars party. Jhene Aiko unfollowing Big Sean on Instagram ended up stoking breakup rumors.
Cameras were not allowed inside the event, so no receipts have surfaced. However, an unnamed source who was in the room told the gossip site that Aiko would not have liked what she saw. "[Sean and Scherzinger] both attended an Oscar Awards after-party together and were cozied up together sitting at a table in VIP,” the source claims. “They were all over each other and they looked really comfortable around each other. They looked like they were a couple.” Aiko allegedly got wind of this news and was furious. “She was pissed, she confronted him about it and he didn’t really deny it,” the source added.
The Shade Room captured proof of Jhene Aiko unfollowing Big Sean in a since-deleted Instagram post. She has went back to following his account at the time of publication.
The rumors may come as a shock to those who've been following their romance recently. It was only a month ago when Aiko was leaving zesty comments on Big Sean's Instagram. A few months prior, Aiko got a giant portrait tattoo of Sean on the back of her arm. Still, Twitter did not chill as these rumors spread.
Aiko, who began dating Sean in 2016, confessed that she was technically in a relationship when they first got together. Speaking with BBC Radio 1Xtra, the "Sativa" singer revealed, “We became friends the year that my brother passed...I had just met him 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…just as a friend. I had never been courtside to a game and he’s cool. I told my boyfriend ‘I’m gonna go to this game.'”
Aiko was previously married to Dot Da Genius and shares a daughter with (Omarion's brother) O'Ryan. Big Sean previously dated singer Ariana Grande and actress Naya Rivera.
