Fans are always up to date with the entertainers dating life. Nevertheless, only some men linked to Saweetie were confirmed to be her boyfriend.

Saweetie's Boyfriends and Dating History

Saweetie reportedly had a four-year relationship with Keth Powers that ended in 2014. Although neither has spoken about their romance, Powers revealed that he and his then-girlfriend broke up as their relationship became toxic.


She later dated Justin Combs after first crossing paths in 2016. However, the timeline of their breakup remains unknown.

In November 2021, the "Best Friend" songstress sparked dating rumors with fellow rapper Lil Baby after they were cozying up in New York City.


A source revealed that the duo went shopping in the Big Apple and that Lil Baby spent $100,000 for Saweetie. Security footage reportedly spotted the two artists at Chanel.

Saweetie fueled the speculation after posting a photo of her sitting on a mystery man's lap. In an attempt to put a name on the mysterious guy, fans went on social media and compared the outfit of Lil Baby and the man in the photo. As they predicted, the two wore the same clothing.

Lil Baby later shut down rumors through tweets that have since been deleted. According to the rapper, he was single and was not dating anyone then.

Around the same time she was linked to Lil Baby, Damson Idris shared an Instagram story of the award-winning rapper playing the piano for him. According to Capital Xtra, Idris called Saweetie his teacher and said at the end of the video, "I wish I could play."


Idris later addressed the speculation during an interview with GQ, claiming that he was single and Saweetie was nothing more than just a friend.

During the BET Awards in 2021, Saweetie and Jack Harlow exchanged sweet gestures, which ignited rumors about their potential romance. The "First Class" rapper was the first to introduce himself when Saweetie was being interviewed.

Although he later claimed they were just being friendly, fans hoped their friendship would turn into something more.

In June 2021, rumors about Saweetie's love life made their way to social media yet again. Several tweets suggested that the singer was in a romantic relationship with NBA star James Harden. Neither of the two has confirmed nor denied the allegations.


Saweetie's Relationship with Quavo

Saweetie's most public relationship began in the summer of 2018 after she was rumored to be dating Quavo. When Saweetie appeared in the Migos member's "Workin Me" music video, fans couldn't help but notice their undeniable chemistry.

Later that year, in September, Saweetie went public with her relationship. During a guest appearance on "The Real," she said:

"You know, we worked together, and ever since then, we've been getting to know each other. I enjoy his company."

The following year, Saweetie divulged more about her relationship timeline and revealed that Quavo reached out to her through social media. After a series of exchanges, the duo "kept running into each other" at events like New York Fashion Week.


Saweetie and Quavo became Instagram official in March 2019 when the "Tap In" artist posted a photo with her beau on the platform. According to Hollywood Life, she wrote:

"Seeing someone use their talents and influence to put on an event in their community for a good cause is so selfless, refreshing and inspiring!! So much love was in the building proud of yoooooou [Quavo]."

Unfortunately, like many other relationships, Saweetie and Quavo faced their first scandal by the end of 2019. A woman went to social media to reveal her alleged relationship with Quavo, indicating that he was unfaithful.

Fans immediately looked into the woman's claims and noticed that the screenshot of their alleged FaceTime calls was unlikely true. Meanwhile, Saweetie and Quavo remained silent on the issue.


Their relationship continued to strengthen in the months that followed. In 2020, the couple attended their first Grammy Awards together and did not hesitate to show public displays of affection. Even amidst the COVID-19 lockdown, the duo proved their love was unshaken.

"I think she's bringing something very special to the game," Quavo said. "She speaks for the pretty college girls that are taking the regular route. You don't have to be a stripper. You don't have to be a bartender. You don't have to take the Instagram model route."

Sadly, in March 2021, Saweetie and Quavo called it quits. The female rapper opened up about her life on social media, revealing that she was single after going through betrayal and pain. She claimed that a fabricated story that put her down circulated and suggested her partner was intimate with other women.


A little over a week after their breakup announcement, a video of the duo in a physical argument made its rounds online. Saweetie quickly addressed the viral clip, claiming that it was a fight that happened a year before. Sadly, they faced more challenges after that eventually broke their bond.

Saweetie made her name known in the industry through hard work and talent. Some may not know that Saweetie has connections in the industry that could have helped her, including Gabrielle Union. However, she did not want a shortcut to fame.
