If Blac Chyna was hoping to date someone with a bit more emotional maturity than, say, Rob Kardashian, we're not sure dating a teenager is the right tactic. Nevertheless, this model-turned-entrepreneur was spotted out with 18-year-old rapper YBN Almighty Jay on Feb. 28 in Los Angeles' Studio City neighborhood. And when a paparazzo asked about their relationship status, Chyna said, "Yeah, we're, like, dating."
A couple days earlier, Chyna and Jay hit up Pinz Bowling Alley, another Studio City locale. As The Blast reports, one photographer said he witnessed them kissing.
So who is this YBN Almighty Jay guy anyway? The Houston native, born Jay Bradley, hit it big last year with his single "Chopsticks." The music video has racked up over 10 million views so far, even though it was only uploaded to YouTube in November. Jay also made waves as a featured artist on Rick the Kid's track "Beware."
If you were wondering, YBN reportedly stands for "Young Boss N--gas" and refers to a crew that includes popular rapper YBN Nahmir, too. Jay teamed up with Nahmir for the track "No Hook" and performed alongside him at concert stops in LA, Chicago, and Birmingham.
Chyna's not the only celebrity with whom Jay has rubbed elbows, though. His Instagram feed shows photos of him with Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, and Kodak Black.
The news of Chyna's fling with Jay comes as she deals with a leaked sex tape starring her and R&B singer Mechie, whom she dated for a couple months last summer. (Her attorney has already vowed to seek the police's help investigating this "criminal matter.")
Speaking of whom, Tyga also has experience dating a teenager: Kylie Jenner was 17 when Tyga reportedly started seeing her. And Kylie is, of course, Rob Kardashian's half-sister, so this web is getting seriously tangled.
