Snowfall actor Damson Idris has a message for all the gossip fiends: there’s absolutely nothing going on between him and Saweetie.
The 30-year-old heartthrob appeared on The Breakfast Club yesterday morning, and he was grilled on whether he was still “taking piano lessons” with Saweetie.
For context, a viral video began circulating in late 2021 showing Saweetie playing the piano for Idris. The actor shared the video to his Instagram Story, and Idris refers to the rapper as his “teacher.”
Immediately reading between the lines of Angela Yee’s question, Idris clarified that he and the “ICY GRL” rapper are “just friends.”
“Me and that queen are just friends. She’s a great piano player, and I didn’t know she could play piano. I don’t even think the world knew, so I was like, ‘This is a cool moment’ and posted it,” he revealed.
Idris then revealed how he and Saweetie linked up in the first place.
“She’s a huge Snowfall fan, and that day we were at lunch talking about how we could collaborate,” Idris stated. “She wanted to show me her new place because I love CB2 and was gonna give her some ideas on furniture and art. And then boom, she’s playing the piano. I was only in there for like 5 minutes, and I dipped out.”
“She’s a friend, she’s a friend of mine,” the actor reverberated.
Idris’ recent interview is the latest instance of people “shipping” him and Saweetie since their piano video.
As Blavity previously reported, Saweetie sparked dating speculation about a month after posting a photo with a mystery man whose face was not shown. Internet users soon began speculating about who her mystery beau could be, with some fans sharing that they were hoping and praying that it wasn’t Idris.
