Were Kim Kardashian and Bow Wow once a secret couple?
In a new interview with Hollywood Unlocked, Bow Wow claimed that he and the reality TV star used to date back in 2007 when Kim was still BFFs with Paris Hilton. In fact, the rapper says he dated Kim before she hooked up with her other ex, Reggie Bush, The Daily News reports.
"We was cool, we remained friends. And this was right before Reggie Bush. The reason nobody knew is because of how I move," he explained. "We kicked it hard."
So, why did they keep their relationship secret? Bow Wow explained that he chose to keep the relationship discreet because he was nervous about dating outside of his race.
"I'm just so nervous because I never really dated outside my race before, this is different for a n*gga," he said. "I don't know how my fans going to look at it... so I kept that sh*t low and nobody really knew."
The rapper went on to explain that he has no intention of kissing and telling, partly because he has too much respect for Kanye West, Kim's current husband, to do so.
"I respect 'Ye and all that, so therefore I ain't gonna say everything all the way 100," he said. "But, you know, like I said, if I'm f*cking with somebody, I'm f*cking with somebody."
Um, doesn't that kind of say it all, though?
Bow Wow isn't the only rapper shocking fans with confessions about the A-listers they used to date; earlier this year, Sean Kingston had Twitter demanding receipts after he claimed that he and Serena Williams were once an item.
