Since the BET Awards show on Sunday night, a new couple may have emerged from the shadows, and we aren’t talking about Toni Braxton and Birdman

Three photos on Instagram may spill the beans that the original Queen Bee, Lil’ Kim, and Kanye West’s newest G.O.O.D. Music signee, Desiigner, are in fact an item.

Kim posted images of the Brooklynites on her page following the awards show and in two of the photos, they do look pretty cozy. Plus. her affectionate sounding captions aren’t helping silence the rumor mill either. 

Desiigner, whose real name is Sidney Royel Selby III, is more than 20 years Kim’s junior.

The 19-year-old busted onto the scene with his smash single “Panda” and the female MC who is mom to 2-year-old Royal Reign with fellow rapper Mr. Papers, appears on the remix.


So, what do you think of all the hype? Is Lil’ Kim dating Desiigner or are they just two new friends spreading love the Brooklyn way?

While the year of 2016 has brought about many rumored celeb matches, could this be the lastest love we didn’t know existed?
