After heating up the Internet last fall with steamy intimate photos spreading across the Internet, footage of rapper Maino and singer Olivia Longott dating has now emerged.
Presented as an unreleased clip from Olivia’s “Love & Hip Hop” show, the former couple discuss their relationship in the video.
“You were so-called dating a football player last time, [laughs],” Maino said when Olivia asked him how his relationship with her manager Rich Dollas was going in light of their romance. “Get outta here. Rich ain’t got no problem with me, man. Why would Rich have a problem with me and you? [He doesn’t want you to be a punchline in my raps?] Ohhhh. Punchline. ‘I used to do Olivia.’ [laughs] Ah ha. Olivia. Yeah. Word. First of all, I’ve got too much respect for you to even handle you like that. I wouldn’t even do that. So just tell him be easy. Go relax. You’ve got nothing to worry about. You’re in the best hands in America. You like those ball player dudes.” (“Love & Hip Hop”)
Last November, Olivia stepped forward and said her romance with Maino was long gone.
“Those are old memories like I said, girl, I don’t even have those pictures, how about that?,” Olivia said in an interview. “All I’m saying is my boyfriend is [professional basketball player] Tarence Kinsey, that’s all I’m saying. [We’ve been dating] for about two or three months now…[How did Tarence react?] It’s a seven hour time difference [where he’s at overseas] so I said you know what, let me be the first person to hit him up when it came out. It was like 3 AM my time and I told him to make sure he called me when he got up before practice and he did and then I explained it to him and he knew it was old anyway because he was like ‘you don’t have that tat on your hand so I know its old.'” (“Morning Riot”)
A week prior, Maino got on Twitter and poked fun at the photos.
“2 words: Publicity Stunt!!!,” he tweeted November 2nd.
F*ck outta here!!! That aint me in those pics, it was @unclemurda!!! Foreal! Lol”
“I was framed!!!! Haaaaaaaaa!!!” (Maino’s Twitter)
Despite Maino’s jokes, Olivia reportedly denied the current romance fling speculation.
“Sorry to burst yall bubble this morning but those are old memories. #Asyouwere,” before carrying on with life as she knows it. But before anyone could blink an eye, Olivia tweeted”only person I’m with is @TK_Kinsey !!!!! They tried to burst my happy bubble this morn #aintgonnahappen.” (Fresh Like Dougie)
