Is Lala Baptiste Dating Lil Tjay?
Tione Jayden Merritt, professionally known as Lil Tjay, is a rapper, singer, and dancer. He is best known for his songs like ‘Brothers,’ ‘F.N.,’ and ‘Pop Out.’
His song with Pop Smoke, named ‘Mood Swings,’ was released in July 2019. After three months, they released the music video on October 7, 2019. The video featured Baptiste as Lil Tjay’s love interest.
Since then, speculations have been going on about their relationship. As reported by HITC, the two have been together for a while.
Baptiste even fought with her best friend, rapper Rubi Rose for her beau, as per the tabloid.
Allegedly, Baptiste initially set the two rappers on a date together, where they even flew to Atlanta to celebrate Lil Tjay’s birthday.
But while they were returning home, Lil Tjay didn’t pay for Rose’s flight back. This embarrassed and humiliated Rose.
Soon after, Baptiste allegedly started dating Lil Tjay. So naturally, Rose was disappointed at her best friend and went on a Twitter rant calling Baptiste names.
However, neither Baptiste nor Lil Tjay has confirmed their relationship to date.
