JACK Harlow tried to “shoot his shot” with Saweetie while on the red carpet for the BET Awards, and fans went wild over the unexpected encounter.
The female rapper recently ended her relationship with Quavo from Migos after a “violent fight.”
Jack, 23, approached Saweetie, 27, while walking the red carpet at the BET Awards on Sunday.
The young rapper cut in while the Best Friend singer was interviewing with The Shade Room to introduce himself.
“Hi Saweetie,” he began, to which she replied: “Hi” as they shook hands.
“I’m Jack, good to see you. I didn’t want to interrupt I just wanted to say hi, we’ve never met,” he explained.
“You don’t like getting caught off guard?” he asked, to which she responded: “Why you shaking?”
Jack then held Saweetie’s hand tight as he told the camera: “Nobody’s shaking.”
After the WHATS POPPIN singer walked away, the interviewer asked: “Was that him shooting his shot or what?”
Saweetie was visibly uncomfortable as she replied: “I don’t know but ya’ll better not be messy with this s**t.”
Fans were shocked by the “awkward” moment as they took to the comments to share their opinions on the musician’s interaction.
“抱歉, she’s awkward af. With Jack and the Shade Room girl,” one slammed.
“Lol he shaking cause he nervous girl, put him on the spot,” another reasoned.
“He was all up in her space on the approach,” a third noticed before adding: “but that interaction was hella cute tho, got me blushing for her.”
A fourth joked: “If shoot ya shot was a person lol,” while another roasted: “Put his entire breath in the girl face.”
Some fans supported Jack’s attempt, as they gushed: “It would’ve worked on me. He kinda smoove [原文如此] with it.”
The red carpet encounter follows the songwriter’s tumultuous breakup with Migos’ rapper Quavo.
The couple called it quits on March 19th, and Saweetie took to Twitter to share the news with her fans.
“I’m single. I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character,” she explained.
“Presents don’t bandaid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women.”
Speculation of their split began after the California native unfollowed her ex on Instagram, and he did the same shortly after.
That same month a disturbing video emerged that showed Quavo involved in a physical altercation with his girlfriend at the time.
然而, Saweetie later spoke out to claim that she had “moved past” the fight and had “reconciled.”
“This unfortunate incident happened a year ago, while we have reconciled since then and moved past this particular disagreement.
“There were simply too many other hurdles to overcome in our relationship and we have both since moved on.”
“I kindly ask that everyone respect my privacy during this time,” she told 第六页.
Saweetie and Quavo began dating in 2018, though she didn’t publicly confirm their relationship until a few months later while appearing on The Real.
In March of 2019 the couple went Instagram official when she released a music video to her song Emotional that featured the Migos rapper.
Prior to their split in January of 2021, Saweetie described how she knew Quavo loved her by saying: “The moment I realized that Quavo really loved me is when he saved me some of his food, he gave me his last piece of chicken.”
Quavo was accused of cheating on the Tap In rapper in November of 2020 with Reginae Carter.
然而, he denied the rumors, propelling Saweetie to come to his defense on Twitter.
“Quit spreading that fake news before y’all get Quavo ass in trouble cuz I don’t play that s**t,” she ranted.
Fans believed that the incident caused the pair to break up as Quavo replied: “I had love for you and disappointed you did all that. You are not the woman I thought you were.
“I wish you nothing but the best.”
Saweetie closed the conversation by saying: “Take care,” but the couple didn’t split ways for another five months.
