Even prison can’t keep this rapper away from sexuality rumours as a viral video allegedly shows him in a compromising position with another inmate.
But King Lil Jay isn't having any of it, and is addressing the rumours surrounding his sexuality after being called out for kissing another man.
The musician is currently incarcerated on firearm charges, only months after being released from prison following a murder conviction years prior.
The Chicago rap mainstay was arrested in 2015 and held on a $400,000 bond before being charged with irresponsible firearm discharge.
Despite all this, the rapper just can’t escape the rumour mill.
Now, after a pair of videos circulated online - which allegedly featured Jay locking lips with another inmate whilst he sat on his lap - he’s deciding to clear his name.
Hours later on July 18, Jay’s videos were up and in the hands of online users everywhere.
Soon, the rapper was all over Twitter, trending as more and more users shared the leaked prison footage, trying to work out whether it really was Jay or not.
From what could be made out from the video, two inmates can be seen in an intimate position, with one inmate with their hair bunched up, wearing pink shoes and a light hoodie sitting on the other inmate’s lap.
But who’s lap could it possibly be?
Well, Twitter believe that the identity of the man is none other than Jay himself.
With romantic caresses and couple-like behaviour seen in the clip, they can then be seen sharing a kiss.
However, the rapper wasn’t taking these allegations sitting down and, in a video shared on Instagram that same day, he adamantly denied that he was the man in the viral video.
Instead, he claims that people are trying to 'tarnish' his name by attaching him to the sexuality questioning of the late rapper King Von, who was once heard asking to be protected in custody due to his sexuality.
In the video, Jay said: “Soon as y’all put dude up actually saying some gay s**t y’all would try to put me on there. Look at that s**t.
“Face don’t match, tattoos don’t match, body don’t match.”
Though the musician came after those who were trying to slate his sexuality, it’s not the first time that this has happened.
In 2022, rumours previously began to run rife about his love life and again, he addressed these claims in another video.
Maybe next year he can make his third year another year of diminishing the rumour mill.
