Most of us only know him as Big Sean, but it’s no shocker that it’s the rapper’s stage name. He was born, Sean Michael Leonard Anderson, on March 25, 1988. He has three studio albums to his name, but it was his third studio album Dark Sky Paradise (2015) which earned him his first No. 1 studio album. In recent times, focus has shifted from the rapper’s music to his messy relationships.
Yes, we know that Hollywood relationships are very out there and get their fair share of our attention, but in Big Sean’s case, his last couple of relationships have had maximum drama, so let’s join the ghost of girlfriends past and future as we unravel his drama.
Big Sean’s Ex- Girlfriend
There are a number of ladies have once held the title of Big Sean’s girlfriend; we have his high school sweetheart, Ashley Marie, Glee actress Naya Rivera, then there was teen star and pop princess Ariana Grande. Out of all these, his relationship with Ariana Grande has warranted a whole lot of attention, so here’s all you need to know.
The couple started dating in October 2014, and they certainly had everyone sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for actual confirmation that they were dating. From their cute Instagram pictures to their even cuter on screen/on stage collaborations, the duo had everyone enthralled by them, and rooting for them.
Unfortunately, after a period of 8 months, the relationship’s ‘Time of Death’ was called. Specifically, on April 20, 2015, the couple released a joint statement through their reps saying, ‘They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends, we kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.’ As expected, the media did not respect that wish.
Naturally, tons of speculations and conspiracy theories as to why their relationship had and untimely death. Some said that Big Sean was cheating on the pop Princess, but apparently that was just a bunch of texts from people supporting Sean after the death of his grandmother. There were also rumors that Big Sean was appalled by Ariana’s childishness and extravagance, but both parties are yet to comment on these rumors.
Big Sean’s Girlfriend
So who is the rap artist dating now? The title of Big Sean’s girlfriend is now held by Miss Jhene Aiko, and boy we can’t wait to tell you all about it. Big Sean must really have a thing for dating ladies he collaborates with, because that is how their romance budded. The two have been friends forever, but it wasn’t till during/after their TWENTY88 collaboration that something just wasn’t quite the same.
The two began to get a little too close for comfort and as such the rumor mill started it’s churning; all those chummy Instagram photos were just a tad bit fishy. Then following their Power 106’s Powerhouse concert in June 2016, Sean kissed Jhene and that was not the scandalous part. People couldn’t shake off the fact that she was married at the time, nevertheless, after that the PDA went up a notch.
In August 2016, Jhene filed for a divorce, apparently her husband, Dot Da Genius, was just not rocking her boat anymore. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the break up, but we all know that’s code for, ‘I wanna leave my husband for Big Sean’. Maybe one day she’ll trade up the title of Big Sean’s girlfriend for Big Sean’s wife, if that’s the kind of thing that rocks her boat.
Big Sean’s House
In 2013, Big Sean bought himself a $1.7 million bachelors pad, now 3 years later, he has listed the house for sale at the price of $2.3 million. Only in Hollywood does second hand property appreciate because of the owner, right?
The house itself, was built back in 2006, but there is nothing outdated about it. It features, formal living and dining rooms, five bedrooms (with one of the bedrooms converted into a recording studio) and 4.5 bathrooms.
The house also has an open-concept kitchen and a master suite with a fireplace. Throughout the house there are large picture windows and French doors as well as several balconies that give breathtaking views from all angles. Did we call this a bachelor’s pad? If it is, it’s quite the classy one.
