Rumors of an emerging romance between screenwriting sensation Issa Rae and her ten year junior, Queen Sugar heartthrob Kofi Siriboe, have been floating around Hollywood for months ever since the two exchanged some frisky tweets back in February.

We all love a happily ever after, especially in black Hollywood, and the media has yet to let up on the two becoming official. After Issa was caught of guard by Charlamagne Tha God during her interview with The Breakfast Club, her eyes lit up and her ambiguous responses left listeners with high hopes of a real thing between her and Kofi.

Charlamagne asked if she gave him a shot and they are dating on the low or if it’s just a social media fling, Issa said, “He’s a very handsome guy…He’s legitimately fine!” But watching, you can tell the wheels were turning in her mind to find the truth of the matter and stay neutral as if not to out their relations and not to discourage a potential partner in Kofi on air.

Just this week one of the Girls’ Trip leading ladies, Tiffany Haddish, seemed to inadvertently mentioning that she’s developing super cool relationships with Hollywood A-listers. Haddish said in a recent interview that Kofi and Issa stopped by her place together, ate fried chicken and drank all her soda! Once you’re comfortable enough to eat finger food around your crush, they are definitely Bae-status.
