The Chicago star responded to people blasting his ex-fiancée for her fame and status.

Lil Durk and India Royale's curious relationship continues to unfold on social media, as the rapper said she has him "in a headlock." Moreover, he responded to trolls on Twitter criticizing Royale for her fame and status, debating whether she's "famous" or just "known." Furthermore, a lot of people went at her for only reaching the limelight as a rapper's baby mama. However, that's a title and rise to fame that the 28-year-old seemed to embrace and not let get to her head. As such, she brushed off the critics and clapped back at a few people on Twitter, which Durk backed up.

"I’m one of the ones who don’t care about y’all saying I got famous from being a rapper baby mama," she tweeted. "I did, and what about it? It’s Miss Rapper Baby Mama to you." Then, she kept responding to people either defending her or continually bashing her after her remarks. Still, one of her most vocal supporters was none other than Durkio himself, who took to the comments section of The Shade Room Teens covering these interactions to put some respect on her name... albeit by reaffirming how much he wants her back. "Y’all talking all that s**t lol she got this rapper in a headlock," he wrote.

Interestingly, it's not like the Chicago MC's attempts to reconcile have resulted in nothing but scorn from his ex. After all, she defended Durk against YoungBoy recently, and even his baby mama and other rappers got roped into the conversation. Despite all that, their relationship status is still separated at the moment, although they're on good enough terms to have a good time with their four-year-old daughter Willow together. Recently, The Voice even posted a lengthy and loving birthday message for his former flame, one that he wants to spark again.

"So I ain’t perfect but I’m for you and I love you,” he partly shared on his IG Story. “And I’m all ears when ever we get back in a relationship. You saved my life with you and willow and big sky outside all my kids you was there ripthang. This real s**t don’t attack her she definitely the best in the world trust me. I ain’t do her wrong I just keep her from the world. I love you having fun and we ain’t fighting I said not fight and I started one but I miss you that’s all. We ain’t no jokes we really that we can get the bag bag together without doing the most or copy cat what they did." Regardless, check back in with HNHH for the latest on India Royale and Lil Durk.
