Rapper Trina has denied speculation that she was romantically involved with 19 year-old rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em.
Despite being photographed with the rapper on a jet ski last year, Trina said she has only offered him support with his music.
"Actually I was in Jamaica, I was supposed to perform on the Jamaica, I think it was like the Jamaica Dance Fest or whatever," Trina told radio personality Angela Yee. "And Soulja Boy was supposed to perform on the same show, and I just recorded a record for him which is called 'Like That.' And they were trying to shoot some scenes for his video for that record so it was all fun, we all went out. We were just skiing. We were supposed to do the whole sky diving thing or whatever, and I was just looking up at that balloon like 'I don't think I'm getting up there,' but it was really cool. I got a chance to perform, it rained, we just had a good time...No we weren't grinding, Angie. [laughs]" (Sirius 45)
Speculation on the two dating began to circulate online last fall.
Are rappers Soulja Boy & Trina trying to tell us something? The two were spotted jet skiing in Jamaica together, looking rather cozy. Not to mention they were spotted backstage at last week's BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta. So, the question is...Are they an item or just two really good friends?... (True Exclusives)
Trina recently joined forces with rap mogul Diddy's Circoc Vodka brand.
"Things are gonna be real big," Diddy said about Trina. "She's an official Ciroc girl...Ciroc is gonna be promoting her album, she's gonna be helping us, we gonna be doing it together. We got a new partnership that we rocking with but most importantly, the record and a video is off the chain...You gonna see us performing the joint live, too. She's gonna have the full-length chinchilla and just be buckey-naked with some stickies on. You know what I'm saying, because the body is thorough. Believe that, she's in the gym!"
