Halle Bailey and DDG are one of the hottest couples out right now. Though, we do not know how long they have really been each other’s lives, we can only speculate. One of the first times we've seen the young couple together was on Christmas in 2021. There was a photo circulating online of Halle at DDG’s home for the holidays. The rumors started then, but didn’t really heat up until last year.
From attending awards shows to red carpet movie premieres, the past year DDG and Halle have been putting their relationship on display. With rumors, old flames, and social media, it’s hard to have a drama-free relationship these days. But, they both manage to keep things together.

Drama in 2023
This year, the young couple are facing some challenges. Earlier this year, after posting a cryptic tweet, DDG had to clear up rumors that he and Halle are not breaking up. Fans were confused about his tweet: ”All these girls the same ain’t no wayy” with a crying face emoji. He also removed all of his pictures of her on his Instagram and stopped following her.
Chloe and Halle’s older sister, Sky, was confused as well and wanted answers. She took to Instagram Live to blast DDG, but soon recanted her statements as Halle assured her, she wasn’t having any issues with her man.
DDG responded on Twitter stating that there was no cheating going on, reminding people that it’s just Twitter.
DDG x Halle vs Rubi Rose
Last month, after Halle posted a photo of herself to Instagram, fans noticed she was wearing the same shirt Rubi Rose wore when she was with DDG. Rose and DDG dated briefly in 2020. She saw this as well and took to Twitter to call the rapper a “weirdo”, but she didn’t stop there.
Rose exposed DDG for sliding in her DMs not too long ago. Apparently, DDG hit Rose up first with intentions to link up. Rose responds by writing, “U hitting me the day y’all argue is so u lol” and DDG replied, “lol u right, lemme go heal first”. The two former flames went back and forth on Twitter with insults.
Bailey chimed in and stood by her man with the tweet, ”the devil is working lol please don’t feed into the lies, especially from a third party”.
Last week, the couple was at Milan Fashion Week with all smiles. It’s safe to say they are doing well!
