DDG, an American rapper, has spoken out about his long-term relationship with Halle Bailey. The 25-year-old actor raved about his 22-year-old fiancée in a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, revealing that she drives him like no other.
“I’ve never met anyone who inspires me as much as she does. I see strange things. I had never been exposed to anything like this before.”
DDG and Halle Bailey fueled relationship speculation in January 2022 when they were spotted together at an Usher gig. They made their romance public on Instagram two months later, in March.
DDG and Halle Bailey met on Instagram.
During an interview with Essence Magazine for their September/October cover story, Bailey revealed how she met the rapper when he snuck into her DMS. She stated:
“I grew up watching YouTube and was always impressed by the young black producers.” He was one of them. I had completely forgotten him. But then I realized he was putting out music, and I was drawn to this one song in particular. He just happened to send me a message, and the rest is history.”
DDG recently spoke to The Breakfast Club about how he chose the right opportunity to slip into Bailey’s communications, which he jokingly refers to as his “wife.” Elon Musk claimed he took the first step after reading her tweet about 50 Cent’s Many Men, one of his favorite songs.
