Relationship With Blac Chyna
So far, the highlight of YBN Almighty Jay’s career, to say the least, was his controversial relationship with popular American entrepreneur and model, Black Chyna. The couple reportedly met on a Christian dating platform and became sweethearts. Their relationship caused a great stir on social media and in real life because of their age difference – Chyna is eleven years older than the rapper.
The controversial reality TV star was first spotted with YBN Almighty Jay in February 2018 at a bowling alley. Not long after, it was revealed that the young man was her boyfriend. While their three-month-old relationship lasted, the two were seen severally running around town, which gave rise to many people calling out Blac for dating the teenage rhymer.
Chyna and Jay went their separate ways in June 2018, just a week after the social media influencer showed off a new tattoo tribute to the rapper in a photo for the first time. It was alleged that the pair called it quits after Jay found out that his then-girlfriend had been seeing someone else – boxer Devin Haney – for months.
The YBN collective member confirmed their separation himself on his Instagram stories on June 19. He simply wrote that he and the socialite are no longer together, after which he went on to delete every trace of the model from his page.
Born Angela Renée White in Washington D.C, in the United States on May 11, 1988, Blac Chyna is a mother of two lovely children. She had a daughter named Dream Renée Kardashian (born 2016) with American TV personality/’Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star Rob Kardashian and a son called King Cairo (born in 2012) with American rapper Tyga (born Micheal Ray Stevenson).
