UPDATE: A source close to the actress tells ESSENCE that Serayah and Wale are not a couple.

It looks like Empire star Serayah and rapper Wale are good at keeping secrets.

A new Entertainment Tonight exclusive claims they are in fact in a serious, committed relationship.

The report suggests that the singer and actress, who plays starlet Tiana Brown on the show, and the rapper have been dating since June and are working to maintain their “long term relationship.” Wale, 31, lives in Los Angeles, but has a home in Chicago, where the show films.

The couple has yet to go public with their relationship, but has been spotted occasionally communicating on Twitter. Serayah, who has not yet celebrated her 21st birthday, is 11 years younger than the rapper.

Could sparks have flown at the BET Awards back in June? They were both in attendance.

Is this relationship for real? We’ll have to wait and see.
