Serayah Confirms Her Split From Jacob Latimore, Gets Intimate With Joey Bada$$
Despite suspicions regarding power couple Serayah and Jacob Latimore’s romance, the 27-year-old actress has finally announced the end of an era. The ex-couple first became official in 2016 after meeting through mutual acquaintances at the BET Awards.
After years of publicizing their adoring romance, the couple has finally called it quits. “Jacob and I are no longer together.— “Unfortunately, we simply grew apart, and I love and appreciate his journey moving forward,” the Empire actress wrote in a statement.
Fans first started speculating about the rumor after Serayah was posted on Joey Bada$$’s Instagram yesterday (February 26). The two curled up next to each other in a seemingly lovey-dovey photograph taken at a restaurant. The post was met with confusion, with one user commenting, “this better be promo for something,” and another adding, “hearts breaking around the world.” Needless to say, many were not happy with Serayah’s shift of attention from Jacob to Joey.
Questions Arise After Joey Bada$$ Posts A Pic Of Serayah
While uncertainty was still circulating from the rapper’s post, Serayah cleared the air on Instagram live. Fans flooded her video with questions about her and the Maze Runner star dating, to which she responded, “no, I am not. I’m not anymore.” The live took a harsher tone when fans continued to bombard the California native with comments. “People think it is so easy to get on the platform and start talking s**t. So I’m just saying simmer down. That’s it,” she stated. Following the live, Serayah confirmed her new boo by posting her own picture with Joey on her Instagram. The post, which glamorously showcased the two stars holding each other on a bridge still sparked disillusionment from commentators, despite Serayah’s confirmation of her breakup.
Both Jacob and Serayah had previously been vocal about their relationship, even having a feature on BET’s Millennial Love Stories. During their episode, the couple optimistically depicted the origins of their relationship, and how they navigated publicizing their love with their growing careers. While dating, the pair was never shy of posting each other on their socials. Now, both Serayah and Jacob’s feeds are seemingly rid of one another.
