The rapper talks about his new girl and breaking up with his high school sweetheart.
There's been quite the buzz lately about Big Sean and his new squeeze Naya Rivera. The rapper and Glee star were spotted together at the 42 premiere at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood last week, their first official appearance as a couple. Big Sean sat down with 93.9 WKYS's The Urban Informer to talk about his career and gush about his new girl and why he let go of his high school sweetheart.
"Naya, I been dating her for a little while, and I guess that event (the 42 premiere) was one of the first big events that came up while I was dating her. We were like, 'Yo let's go to it' because we both wanted to go. I'm kinda a private person and she's a private person," he said.
Before getting together with Rivera, Big Sean had been in a long distance relationship with his girlfriend Ashley, who he'd been dating since he was a teen. The 25-year-old admitted that the two grew up and grew apart and that while it might not have worked out this time around, perhaps it will in the future. For now, he's enjoying his time with Rivera.
"I had a girlfriend too before who I was with since I was like... I always been in a relationship since I was 18 or 19 when I got with her. Things didn't work out and not because of this music stuff. But sometimes when you're with somebody and you're 18 and you grow up...and it's long distance because she lived in New York and I lived in L.A...you grow apart as people. It's nothing more and nothing less," he said. "It's not like I've changed. It's not like that at all. We just really had our differences and it just clearly didn't work out. It may work out later, it may come back, too. Who knows? But as far as Naya, it's something new. Naya's really cool. Our relationship is cool. She's tight."
