Are Tinashe and Ben Simmons Dating?: ‘That’s My Little Boo Thang’ [VIDEO]
It looks like Tinashe has found herself a "boo thang." The R&B sensation is reportedly dating Philadelphia 76ers rookie Ben Simmons.
The dating rumors started when Simmons slid into Tinashe’s comments section after she posted an Instagram photo of herself wearing lingerie and seductively posing on a bed.
“Where’s bae?” she asked in the caption. “Charlotte,” Simmons replied in the comments. The 25-year-old singer hit him back with a heart eye emoji and wrote “miss you.”
TMZ Sports caught up with Tinashe in Los Angeles and asked her if she is dating Simmons. The “No Drama” singer played coy with her answer. “That’s my little boo thang,” she said.
However, Tinashe wouldn’t elaborate if she is in fact dating the NBA b-baller.
We did a cursory look at Urban Dictionary and it defines "boo thang" as “a relationship with someone special who you do your thang with; You respect and got love for em.”
So technically, Tinashe and Simmons are not "officially" a couple just yet. But the pair’s social media flirting is quite evident on social media. Also, in a recent radio interview, Tinashe said that Simmons is her favorite Sixers player. The 21-year-old Simmons is doing his thang on the hardwood floor and is a contender for the NBA’s Rookie of the Year award.
There’s no word on how long the two have been dating, but it looks like Tinashe has found someone she can “2 On” with. You go girl!
