Angela Simmons and Bow Wow pose together at Miami Fashion Week.
Everyone’s got a celebrity crush, but on the next “Catfish,” 19-year-old Keyonnah is convinced she’s actually dating hers. As a tried and true Bow Wow fan, Keyonnah clocked many hours on the “106 & Park” host’s fan page, and was shocked when, one day, she received a message back from the rapper, which led to many subsequent texts and phone calls. Is she on the money about their relationship status? Is she totally delusional? Most of you have been leaning toward the latter, but hey, stranger things have happened. Uh, right?
In the event Keyonnah’s right about her online love, we’ve put together a quick timeline of Bow Wow’s past relationships so that she’s ready for any potential baggage. Take a glimpse, and tune in to “Catfish” tonight at 10/9c to see if
Ciara: After dating for a year and making music together on “Like You,” Bow Wow and Ciara called in quits in April of 2006, according to People. While the couple was still together, Ciara was occasionally seen sporting a diamond piece of jewelry on her left ring finger, but assured the magazine it was “just a little gift.”
Angela Simmons: Well, we definitely know that Bow Wow doesn’t trash his exes! After dating on and off for years, Rev Run‘s daughter Angela Simmons and Bow Wow came face-to-face on “106 & Park” earlier this year and Angela tweeted of their reunion: “Been riding with each other 9 years and counting #realfriendship.”
Joie Chavis: After staying mum on the topic for some time, Bow Wow came clean in a 2011 fan letter that he and former flame Joie had a child, Shai, together. Shai lives with Joie across the country, and Bow Wow told Oprah earlier this year, “It’s so hard — I Skype with [Shai] and I just wish that I could just reach in there and grab her little self.”
Tyra Banks: OK, so we might be reaching with this one, but after a recent appearance on “106 & Park” that included a big ol’ smooch with Bow Wow (which, as it turns out, was her second), the supermodel is rumored to be the rapper’s newest girlfriend. Think it’s the real deal? If so, Tyra better watch her back — Keyonnah will be none too pleased!
