Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em has opened up about his intimate relationship with rapper Diamond and why their love flows deeper than rap.
Asked what impact Diamond has on his life, Soulja said the Atlanta femcee gives him ample support and love.
"I feel like she's definitely that," Soulja said when asked if Diamond is his pillar of strength. "She's an added plus just for me, period. She supports me. She loves me. Everybody needs love, everybody needs that support in their corner. She's definitely a pillar of strength in my corner. I don't need negativity around me. With all the stuff that's going on with me as being Soulja Boy and my personal life, and in the world in general, the whole world needs love." (The Boom Box)
Last month, Diamond credited Soulja's smarts and personality as features that attracted her to him.
"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)
A few weeks ago, 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")
