Tinashe Calls NBA Star Ben Simmons Her ‘Boo Thang’

Tinashe is getting candid about her love life.

The “Faded Love” singer was spotted in West Hollywood on Wednesday (March 7), where she was asked about her relationship with rumored boyfriend Ben Simmons, a rookie for the Philadelphia 76ers.

“That’s my little boo thang,” she told TMZ with a smile.

The pair has been playful about their romance on social media. “Where’s bae?” she asked under a photo of herself in lingerie. “Charlotte,” he replied, while on a road trip to play against the Hornets. She hit him back with a heart eye emoji, a smirk, and “miss you.”

The 21-year-old Simmons has been on quite a roll this season, averaging 16.5 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 7.6 assists per game this season. He’s a contender for the NBA’s Rookie of the Year award.

Tinashe addresses these rumors, just as she reimagines her “No Drama” single. Teaming up with Sony’s “Lost in Music: Sessions,” the pop princess revamped the track with a live band.

“Not only does it challenge you as an artist and as a creative to reimagine it,” she says in the video, “but it also, I think, inspires the fans.”

Up next, Tinashe is readying her oft-delayed sophomore album Joyride, which is expected this year.
