Lil Durk and India Royale recently sparked breakup rumors after the former was accused of allegedly cheating on his longtime partner with a transgender woman. Cheating rumors surfaced after pictures of the rapper with the unidentified person.
Images posted by an Instagram user showed a man walking behind a transgender lady in a hallway. People were quick to speculate that the man in the picture was Lil Durk as his clothes resembled that of the rapper from another photo he posted on his own Instagram.
However, it was hard to confirm his identity due to the blurry and unclear nature of the photographs. Rumors further intensified when the Laugh Now Cry Later singer deleted his Instagram account following the controversy.
Several social media users also claimed that India Royale removed all pictures of the couple from her Instagram after the cheating drama went viral. Surprisingly, the influencer soon shot down the rumors by posting a loved-up picture with her beau.
She also hinted that the couple is still going strong with the caption, “Play Dangerously in Love." Meanwhile, Lil Durk also made a comeback on Instagram, posting the same picture as his girlfriend. He even attempted to refute the allegations writing, “y’all know damn well this s*** 4eva.”
A look into Lil Durk and India Royale’s relationship
