Atlanta rapper Diamond has come clean on her relationship with Soulja Boy Tell Em and what characteristics the "Pretty Boy Swag" hitmaker has which ultimately won her over.
Diamond credited Soulja's intelligence and personality for attracting her.
"We've been friends for a while," Diamond said in an interview with Boss Lady. "I knew him ever since he came out, when he first came out. He's always been real sweet, a real [nice] guy. He's very, very smart and intelligent. I learned a lot from him and that's what I look for when I date a guy. I like to learn. Teach me. Sometimes guys may not want to teach you, they may want to compete. You never know. But that was like one of the key things that captured my attention." (Dr. Jays Live)
Earlier in the week, Soulja Boy discussed his relationship with Diamond.
"Man, I've been knowing Diamond for four years; ever since I came on the scene with 'Crank That.' She's been a cool individual and recently we started rocking heavy. Y'all already know (laughs)...Obviously, it's stuff you gotta deal with when you're a celebrity and in a relationship in the open. It don't matter who girl it would've been. If you a celebrity and you dating people gonna talk. It is what it is." (XXL Mag)
Prior to their address, Lil Scrappy spoke on his ex-girlfriend linking up with Soulja Boy.
"We ain't been together so I can't say nothing, you feel me," Scrappy said in an interview referring to Diamond. "We keep it closed in, you feel me? When people see that, they observe and see different things. I can't help what people see...When I see the picture [of them together] it's like, 'OK, wow. OK, cool.' It really don't do nothing to me. You feel me? ... I'm into making moneyright now and that's what she was into doing and I guess [Soulja Boy] is into doing. Everybody's into making money but at the end of the day, you can't help when two people like each other. You feel me? ... I been kicking it with her for a minute but we've both been openly dating. I'm sure y'all are gonna see some pictures of some [of my girls]. You feel me? Shorty gotta get her money. However shorty gotta get her money -- and shorty is young. If she out with that dude, that dude and that dude, they can't judge her..." ("Dirty Boyz")
A day before, Scrappy's mother, Mama D, voiced her grievances over the situation.
"She lied like a motherf*cker! Called Scrappy back, talking about 'I was just hanging out with him.' Whoo! I want to put my hand around that b*tch throat. I want you to go on the radio and say 'Mama D is angry because you don't mess with Mama D son.' But you know what ladies and gentlemen? Her son is doing good. The Prince of the South is still the reigning prince because he's chill like that, he's gonna keep it pimpin'. It's f'd up how she did it -- low down dirty b*tch...She gonna give it up like that, she might as well get some money for it h*e. Scrappy, Mama D, we gonna keep it G, you heard me? Let the radio know that Scrappy the Prince of the South is still the reigning Prince and he's chilling on South Beach, okay, with a beautiful lady. He ain't stunting that sh*t there, he's all good."
