Lil Durk has yet to respond to India Royale and NBA Youngboy’s back-and-forth. However, fans are anticipating that he’ll eventually issue another incoherent message on Instagram. On Monday night, things went left after India Royale lashed out at NBA Youngboy for heckling Lil Durk’s attempt to win back his ex. “Lol damn I know how it be when that h*e turn to a demon,” he tweeted following Durk’s weekend-long Instagram tirade. That response evidently got under India Royale’s skin, who went in on NBA Youngboy for mentioning the father of her child.

“Don’t speak on me bitch. I let you slide the first time,” she wrote. “That’s still my BD. Ion play about him. Y’all can chill. Fr.” The fact that India even responded caught everyone off-guard. Still, she didn’t clarify who she was speaking about until she referred to YB as “Dent Head.” As she and YB continued to trade shots back and forth, Durk began to trend online as many expected him to come to India’s defense.

Durk’s recent social media output made him an immediate target when India Royale began going in on NBA Youngboy. Though he and India Royale appeared to have their fair share of issues when it came to their relationship, it felt surprising that she would even give YB the time of day. Still, her flurry of responses to the Louisiana rapper in defense of the father of her child led fans to come to their own conclusions of how he would respond.

Over the weekend, Durk shared several statements where he professed his love for India and vowing to make things right. Though he initially stated that the two were done, he followed up with a lengthy message where he explained that he wants to work things out. Ultimately, India Royale appeared to be fed up with his online antics and reiterated that she’s single. Perhaps, this feud with YB could bring them closer together. Check out the responses below.
