On Saturday (December 9), the California native revealed on his Instagram stories that the hookup happened thanks to Osaka’s child’s father, Cordae.
“@naomiosaka THANK YOU,” he wrote in the story. “GO GIRL @harmonysvibe @cordae Goodlooking broski.”
Cordae subsequently reposted the story on his own Instagram stories, shouting out “my n-gga! #GirlDads.”

Back in September, Cordae made headlines when he dropped the “Make Up Your Mind” visual, which was meant to accompany a song of the same name, which he’d released over the summer.
A reflection of the song’s lyrical matter, the visual features the Grammy nominee going through the ups and downs of a romance with his on-screen partner.
“I said she love me/ She love me not/ But she don’t got no damn clue about what she wants,” he sings in the chorus, which has now been translated to video format.
Whether or not the song represented anything happening in his actual love life, Cordae’s life seemed a little less chaotic. The former YBN rapper became a father to a baby girl with Naomi Osaka earlier this year, following which he revealed the name of his newborn, Shai, at a concert.
Meanwhile, YG made headlines last month when Boosie Badazz accused him of swiping his lyrics.
The Baton Rouge rapper took to Instagram on November 21 to claim that the Compton native snatched the idea for his Drake collaboration “Who Do You Love?”
YG’s song was released in 2014 on his My Krazy Life album, but Boosie believes he borrowed the hook from a 2009 track of the same name without permission.
“Check ya DM @yg MY G SO WE CAN TAKE CARE THIS,” he wrote while sharing a snippet of YG’s song, followed by his version.
YG has yet to respond.
YG previously admitted he got the idea for the chorus on “Who Do You Love?” from Boosie Badazz in a verified annotation on Genius following the song’s release.
Produced by Mustard, the hit single reached No. 54 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with My Krazy Life peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
