The newest breakup rumors stemmed from one viral tweet claiming that the two blocked each other on Twitter. It's far from the first time that rumors of the two splitting up have blown up on social media. When they unfollowed each other on Instagram back in February, similar sentiments began to spread. DDG shot down the rumors down at the time, calling the internet "so gullible.”

Halle Bailey recently spoke about being in love with DDG during an interview for British Vogue. “Experiencing deep love for the first time in my life is something I feel has opened a whole new world for me creatively," she told the outlet. "What it feels like to love someone other than your family, like somebody you may not have known two years ago but now they’re the center of your world. I like all of the scary feelings that come with that. I like the suspense, the not knowing what’s going to happen, and I feel like that’s what I’m supposed to be going through in womanhood." Check out DDG's recent tweets about being an "E-list rapper" below.
