Maybach Music Group rapper Wale recently discussed his love for sports and, notably, what female athlete most catches his eyes.
Asked to name the sexiest female athlete, the Washington, DC native wasted no time naming Notre Dame basketball star Skylar Diggins.
Who’s the sexiest female athlete? Skylar. Skylar? Yeah. You like them ball players. [laughs] Skylar. That’s gonna start some rumors, man, you ready for that? Whatever. She know. She know she bad. (The Round Up)
Just last month, Diggins was targeted in an online nude scandal.
Worldstar Hip Hop claim the photos above were from Skylar’s early years at Notre Dame. Here is what I know and then you can come to your own conclusions. About a week ago a gentleman contacted me claiming he had naked photos of Skylar Diggins. He wanted $10k for the photos. The gentleman claimed that he would leak the photos and assured me they were real, not a fake like what happened to Skylar a couple of years ago. I get offers like this almost daily, so I didn’t think much about it, but I guess he carried through on his threat. Probably a scorn ex-boyfriend if you believe that is Skylar in the photos. For the record, I am not sure they are or not, maybe the Photoshop experts will figure it out. (Black Sports Online)
Photos of rap star Lil Wayne at one of Diggins’ games heated up the Internet in late fall.
Lil Wayne traveled to South Bend, Indiana, to see Skylar Diggins and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish take on the Baylor Lady Bears at the NCAA Women’s basketball game on Wednesday. Weezy grabbed a courtside seat, sporting camouflage cargos, Jordans, and a black hoodie, as he cheered on Notre Dame’s 22-year-old point guard. “Just left the Notre Dame game and it was a good one! And the people were super kool there. Luv! Now I’m goin sk8!!!!!!! Good game Sky!” tweeted Tunechi. The “No Worries” rapper has expressed his love for Diggins in the past, wearing her jersey while in her home state for his “I Am Music II” tour last year. (Rap-Up)
Last summer, Diggins addressed Weezy’s support of her Notre Dame team and kept mum on romance speculation.
“It was good, it just shows that our sport can entertain any demographic,” Diggins said about Wayne supporting her. “He showed not only love to me, myself, but my team, my school, he watches women basketball. He’s a fan of my craft and likewise with me and him.” (Baller Status)
