Jhene Aiko’s Divorce From Dot Da Genius Is Officially Final
Welp, it’s official–Jhené Aiko and producer Dot Da Genius are finally divorced. Aiko and Dot married in early 2016, only for Aiko to file for divorce in August that same year.
The marriage of 11 months ended just as rumors began to swirl around Aiko and rapper Big Sean. They’d released their collaborative project TWENTY88 in April 2016 and things went south between Aiko and Dot around the same time. And when the pair performed at Power 106’s Powerhouse music festival in Anaheim that summer, they shared a public kiss.
According to TMZ, Sean and Aiko are now official. It’s not like they weren’t already obviously together.
Aiko just released her new album Trip. The project was a surprise release back in mid-September and earned widespread raves for the singer.
Trip is a 22-collection, and features Big Sean, Kurupt, Brandy and Swae Lee. It’s the singer’s first solo offering since her 2014 effort, Souled Out.
“I’m a bit of an escape artist,” the California native previously said of the album in an interview with Playboy. “I like to take myself out of my element and create. I went to Hawaii by myself and hiked. When you connect with nature, you connect with yourself. It’s inspired by every type of trip you could imagine: mental, physical, even psychedelic. I’m at a point where I put it all in the music. It’s a puzzle I want people to put together.”
