Joey Bada$$ and actress-singer Serayah have caused fans to go into a frenzy after they were spotted cozying up to each other in a romantic photo.
On Sunday (February 26), Joey Bada$$ shared a picture on Instagram of himself and Serayah sitting beside each other in a restaurant. The two can be seen positioned fairly close to each other, with Joey gazing at Serayah’s lips.
The Pro Era leader didn’t give away much in his caption other than posting a black heart emoji. However, his comments section was filled with fans and friends congratulating the pair on their apparent budding romance.
“I love this for y’all serayah and joey is giving power couple,” one person wrote, while another commented: “I just fell to my knees in Target.”
Serayah further fueled the dating rumors when she revealed on Instagram Live that she’s no longer dating fellow actor Jacob Latimore.
“No I am not,” the 27-year-old said in response to a fan asking about the status of their relationship. “I’m not anymore. I am not, I am not, I am not.”
She continued in response to fans reacting to the break-up news: “I want y’all to be easy ‘cause let me say something. It’s so easy to get on a platform and start talking shit, so I’m just saying simmer down. That’s it.”

Serayah had dated Latimore for a year up until last summer it seems, when questions began to arise over whether they were still together. Fans reported seeing them attend the 2022 BET Awards separately and sit apart from each other.
If the rumors are true, this would be one of the first times Joey Bada$$ has let fans into his love life, as he usually keeps that side of his life private.
On the music side, the Brooklyn native made his long-awaited return last summer with the release of his third studio album 2000.
The follow-up to 2017’s All-Amerikkkan Bada$$, the project peaked at No. 25 on the Billboard 200 and boasted appearances from Diddy, Chris Brown, J.I.D, Westside Gunn, Larry June and more.
More recently, Joey has kept his momentum rolling with guest verses on Ab-Soul’s Herbert and Logic’s College Park
while advancing his acting career with his role as Unique in 50 Cent’s Power Book III: Raising Kanaan.
