Lil Dicky Girlfriend
Lil Dicky has revealed that he is a hopeless romantic. While he is yet to romance any popular name in the industry, Dick has had a lot of girlfriends in the past. And having gone through a heartbreak, Dicky has learned some relationship tips.
Speaking to GQ Magazine about his song Molly which he dedicated to his real-life ex-girlfriend, Dicky said;
“Like, I’m totally emotionally vulnerable. I love love. There’s nothing more—being single to me is far less interesting to me than being in deep love. Not even close. I don’t even think that’s like a debate.”
The video for his song Molly shows him attending the wedding of his ex-girlfriend while expressing the hurt he feels watching her marry another man.
In the song, Dicky raps about why the relationship didn’t work, saying “Wanted you back, but when the fact is that I always put you second to rap/ I’m not mad that you wouldn’t come/ And even though I had to move I ain’t move on.”
That video was released in June 2016. The following month, Dicky shot a commercial for Trojan Bareskin condoms and according to Elite Daily, the girl in the commercial was actually his real-life girlfriend. It is unclear if Dicky is still in a relationship with the unnamed girl.
