Rapper Wiz Khalifa delved into his publicized relationship with model Amber Rose and why their love for one another is deeper than the media thinks.
According to Khalifa, he feels their relationship has a shot at going far.
"It's pretty serious. I really, really dig her," Wiz told radio personality Angie Martinez Wednesday (March 30). "People think it's an image thing and that we're just doing it to be crazy, but like, for real, for real, it's just two great people meeting at a good time. We just like to crack jokes and stuff like that. She's very down to earth, she's very realistic, and that's the way that I am. Just seeing stuff for what it is and not being blinded by the lights...I'ma be with her. That's why we wanted to give it to the world. But it's realistic. It's nothing that we're just beefing up or just doing for anybody's eyes. It's real. She's a great girl. I really, really am into her...I'm the kind of guy who knows when I'm winning, no Charlie Sheen intended. When you won, you don't gotta keep trying to do stuff that's gonna mess it up." (Hot 97)
Intimate photos of Wiz and Rose appear in the latest issue of FADER magazine.
For FADER Issue #72 we traveled to Los Angeles and spent the better part of a week with Wiz Khalifa. After, we emerged from a cloud of one-billion joints with a story about what it means to become famous now, and a lot of incredible images. Relatively new FADER photographer Ross Mantle shot Wiz in the center of a music video shoot and documented some of the first days of his relationship with Amber Rose. Mantle said, "He's pretty down to earth. I don't know if he's going to get a head about him later on, but he has a bit of a young ego. I think to be in the position he's in you have to have something like that to begin with." (The FADER)
A few weeks ago, Wiz admitted to introducing his mom to Rose.
"She was dying to come to a show, I was dying to have her at a show, it was a good opportunity," Wiz said speaking of Amber Rose. "[She met my mom], that was actually at Pittsburgh, at the AFC Championship. That was like a pretty big moment. People don't know. We both travel a lot...She was close. Like I said, I was on tour at the time, we're both really, really busy. It was convenient...I'm working hard as h*ll man." (In Flex We Trust)
Earlier this year, Rose and Khalifa hinted at their romance.
Since splitting from longtime boyfriend Kanye West last year, Rose has been linked to several rappers, but Khalifa appears to be her newest flame. The two were spotted out and about in Los Angeles, and have shared their adoration for one another over Twitter. "I need my baby," Rose tweeted. "I'm so in LOVE I don't care what anyone says that's my baby I found happiness my heart is with Cam." At press time, Rose refused to comment on the matter, noting that any further announcement regarding her relationship status would be released through her lawyer. (The Boom Box)
