After previously rapping about his crush on Angela Simmons in his “Down In The DMs” track, Yo Gotti has officially bagged the 35-year-old. Relationship rumours began circulating last September when she rapped along to the aforementioned namedrop during a night of partying. Shortly afterwards, they raised more eyebrows by posting matching vacation photos on their Instagrams.
Things were relatively quiet for the CMG head and his rumoured girl through the last few months of 2022. However, when the new year began, the New York native promptly let the world know that she was “happier than ever” with Yo Gotti. We’ve obviously been seeing more and more of the couple in public recently. This past weekend, for example, they spent their date night at the Grammys.
Like many other huge names in the industry, Gotti took a trip to Los Angeles to walk the red carpet and take in some astounding performances last night (February 5). His date for the evening, Simmons, looked as stunning as ever in a curve-hugging black dress. It came complete with a white feather trim around the bottom.
She also wore her hair in a slick updo, complete with a bang. For his part, the recording artist looked undeniably dapper in a black and white tuxedo. He opted to accessorize with a bowtie and shiny studs in his ears. In a video later uploaded to his social media, Gotti and the shoe designer walk through the venue as he tells the camera that Simmons’ feet are in pain.
“She gotta get it together,” the 41-year-old jokes as she struggles to keep up. After seeing the pair take on the red carpet together, some Twitter users chiefly expressed concern at their lack of smiles and genuine energy in some photos. “This Angela Simmons and Yo Gotti relationship seems very pressed [and] staged,” one user said.
“Idk what it is, just not looking [like an] organic, genuine relationship.” Another added, “Yo Gotti ain’t smiled since he been with Angela Simmons.” On the other hand, other social media sleuths simply praised the Memphis native for finally bagging his longtime crush.
