Megan Thee Stallion (Megan Pete) confirmed rumors that she is dating rapper Pardison Fontaine during an Instagram Live session on Friday.
The confirmation came while she responded to fans who expressed concern about a video that recently surfaced online. Fans believed the video showed Megan having a heated argument with Fontaine.
During the Instagram live stream (see below), Megan defended Fontaine against criticism after the video surfaced online. The WAP singer said she was upset about what some people were saying about Fontaine and their relationship.
“People don’t know what the hell they talking about; they just be saying anything,” she said. “I didn’t like what they was trying to say about Pardi, ’cause he is so calm and so sweet.”
“That’s my boo, and I really like him,” she continued. “He is so perfect, and he would never do anything to hurt me, just so y’all know.”
She also responded to a critic who called her a “simp,” saying, “I never said hot girls can’t have boyfriends.”
“Y’all not about to play with my man,” the 26-year-old Savage singer said. “He don’t even be doing nothing to nobody. Yeah, he my boyfriend.”
