She shared a photo with Nicky Jam on her Instagram page with a heart-shaped emoji and tagged the famous singer.

This is so because she is/was friends with Cydney Moreau to whom Nicky Jam was engaged. Cydney and Nicky only ended their relationship in early 2021. They began dating in 2019 when they met for the first time on the set of the music video for his song, “Atrevete”.
