Jhene Aiko And Big Sean Are Not Back Together
Fans of Jhene Aiko and Big Sean had folks hopes up this weekend after Aiko posted a picture of the pair sitting atop a lifeguard stand, with the caption “Today was a good day.”
While many hoped the photo signaled a reconciliation for the pair, a source close to Aiko tells Us Weekly that Aiko wanted to clear the air with Sean after singing about their relationship on her new song “Triggered (Freestyle).”
“Jhene was very upset with how her freestyle was only seen as a diss track to Big Sean. She knows she went harder on him than he deserved and was upset that her fans were attacking him.”
In the song, which the three-time Grammy nominee released on Tuesday, May 7, she sings, “Knew from the beginning / You’d ruin everything, you do it every time.”
“Jhene wanted to meet up with him to explain her frustrations that were shared in her freestyle and post this picture so people would stop hating on Sean so much,” the source tells Us. “They are not back together.”
The pair dated for two years before splitting in December 2018.
Aiko also took to Twitter after releasing the song last week to explain how it came about and why she didn’t consider it a diss:
Would you want to see Sean and Jhene back together? Or do you think they are better off apart — especially after hearing her sing about it? What about musically? Would you prefer they make a TWENTY88 part two, keep it strictly professional and leave the romance alone?
