Yo Gotti and Angela Simmons are heading into 2023 as an official item.
The Memphis rap mogul and daughter of Run-DMC legend Rev Run confirmed their long-rumored relationship with a romantic New Year’s Eve photoshoot on Saturday (December 31).
Gotti posted a video on Instagram showing Simmons in a black dress and evening gloves posing next to a Rolls-Royce. “You looking good,” he tells the Growing Up Hip Hop star after wishing her a happy New Year, to which she replies: “Mmmm thanks.”
The clip then cuts to the couple in the back of the luxury ride toasting to 2023 over a glass of champagne. “Ain loss a crush since High School,” Gotti captioned the post, which was soundtracked by Lil Baby and Fridayy’s “Forever.”
The CMG boss also showed his gentleman side by posting a photo of him escorting Angela Simmons out of the car and holding an umbrella over her head, followed by a shot of him squeezing her derrière with both hands as they share a kiss.
Simmons also made their relationship Instagram official by sharing a series of flicks from their photoshoot. One post captured them looking every bit the power couple as they posed inside and next to their Rolls-Royce on their way to a New Year’s Eve party.
“You are all I need and more,” she wrote in the caption.
Gotti and Simmons rang in the New Year by watching fireworks on a boat, as seen in footage posted on their respective Instagram Stories.
Yo Gotti and Angela Simmons have been romantically linked for years, with Gotti famously professing his love for the model/reality TV star on his 2015 hit “Down in the DM.”
“And I just followed Angela (Simmons) / Boy, I got a crush on Angela Simmons / They like, ‘Damn Gotti, you bold’ / Fuck it, I’m gon’ let the world know (goals),” he rapped on the song, which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The CM10 rapper also lusted over Simmons on his 2017 “Save It For Me” collaboration with Chris Brown, admitting her engagement to Sutton Tennyson at the time only made him want her more.
“Passed my number to Angela / I thought I had her / Her n-gga cuffed her, married, it made me madder/ I respect it, I’m moving on, but the truth is I want her badder / Maybe me sayin’ her name made him move faster,” he spit.
Simmons and Tennyson, who share a six-year-old son, called off their engagement later that year. Tennyson was shot and killed in November 2018 after an argument with another man outside his home allegedly escalated.
Rumors surrounding Yo Gotti and Simmons intensified in September when the pair were spotted partying together at a nightclub for Simmons’ 35th birthday, where she rapped along to “Down in the DM.”
Their blossoming romance was all but confirmed in November when Simmons posted a photo of her sharing an intimate moment with a mystery man — whose face was covered by a red heart emoji — at a party.
Internet detectives discovered the man’s outfit was the same one Yo Gotti was wearing, while the party was reportedly thrown by the CMG mogul for his mother’s birthday.
