Atlanta rappers Soulja Boy Tell Em and Diamond have come out to address recent rumors about their relationship and confirm they are more than just friends these days.
Both artists called into their local Atlanta radio station Hot 107.9 to speak out.
"Eh man, you already know how that go," Soulja Boy said in an interview. "What's another man's trash is another man's treasure. Me and shorty rocking, straight like that. [Are me and Diamond a couple now?] Yup, straight up...I ain't got no reason to lie to y'all. Y'all been knowing me ever since I first came out, you know what I mean?"
"What's happening," Diamond said during the interview. "Yeah, it's official. Y'all know what's up. [laughs] The long way." ("Dirty Boyz")
Soulja Boy also recently opened up about his close 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 with Diamond.
"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."
