Big Sean Talks Dating Naya Rivera, Breaking Up With Ex-Girlfriend Ashley Marie

Big Sean’s upcoming album Hall of Fame has everyone buzzing, but more importantly, to his lady fans, is his new relationship with Glee actress Naya Rivera.

The rapper stopped by DC’s radio station 93.9 WKYS to explain why he and former girlfriend Ashley Marie didn’t work out. “I’ve always kinda been in a relationship, since I was 18 or 19 when I got with her, and things didn’t work out, not because of this music stuff,” he says. “Sometimes when you’re with somebody, and you’re 18, you grow up. And it was long distance. She lived in NY, I lived in LA – you grow apart as people. Nothing more or nothing less, it wasn’t like I changed. We just really had our differences. As far as Naya, it’s something new. Naya she’s very cool. Our relationship is cool.”

Big also explained to listeners about how long him and Naya have been dating and how they enjoy their privacy. “I’ve been dating her for a little while. That event was one of the first big events to come up. I’m kinda a private person and she’s a private person.”

The G.O.O.D. Music affiliate also talked about possible collaborations with Eminem and Common. Press play for the interview below. — Desire Thompson
