Jhené Aiko and Dot Da Genius are reportedly divorcing after just eleven months of marriage. As TMZ reports, Jhené filed the divorce papers and is asking the judge to deny Dot spousal support. She cited irreconcilable differences, meaning the split could be due to anything.

Jhené made headlines after kissing her Twenty88 collaborator Big Sean on stage in Anaheim, Calif. in June, but there's no word about whether or not the split has anything to do with the pair's relationship. Dot Da Genius is best known for his production work with Kid Cudi, including being one half of the duo WZRD alongside Cudi. He and Aiko confirmed their marriage back in March with a post on Instagram. The couple first started dating in 2014. 

Jhené has been mostly silent about the couple's relationship since the original announcement, but back in April she did shoot down rumors that they had split up. After a fan tagged her in a Twitter post linking to an article about divorce rumors due to Big Sean, she fired back. "Put down the blog, pick up a book," she said. "You like science at all? Art? Nature? Music? There are literally books for all these things." There hasn't been much to see in terms of proving or disproving her and Dot's relationship since then. For his part, Dot Da Genius took to Twitter to respond to the story. 

Complex has reached out to Jhené's rep for comment and will update when available.

UPDATED August 12, 4:40 p.m. ETOn Friday, The Beat 99.9 FM’s Osi attempted to instigate a situation with Kid Cudi on Twitter after quote-tweeting his tweet from July 23, 2014 to Jhené Aiko where he wrote "if you hurt him, i'll kill you." It appears Osi resurfaced the tweet after news broke about Aiko and Dot Da Genius' alleged divorce. Cudi quoted the tweet and responded with "the funny thing is, we aint sweatin these bum bitches and these corn ball ass niggas. We too busy makin better music."
