Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em is back on the prowl for a new "Soulja Girl," now revealing he no longer has an intimate relationship with fellow artist Diamond.
Although his marital status is now single, Soulja Boy said he still has a friendly connection with Diamond.
"Ahhhh. VIBE's gona have all the exclusives. Me and Diamond--she's a good person, she's a good friend. But I ain't with nobody. I wish her the best with everything she got goin on." (VIBE)
In June, Soulja Boy credited Diamond for fueling him through life.
"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 May, Diamond cited Soulja's smarts and personality as features which 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 months 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)
