In the song, Gotti mentioned that he had recently followed Angela on social media and had become smitten with what he saw. To get his crush’s attention, Gotti calls out Angela by first and last name, stating, “And I just followed Angela Simmons/ Boy, I got a crush on Angela Simmons/ They like, 'D--- Gotti, you bold'/ F--- it, I'm gon' let the world know."

After Yo Gotti’s initial public adoration for Angela, the rapper continued referencing her in his songs, including his 2017 track, “Save It for Me,” when he mentioned she had been “cuffed” by her boyfriend then, Sutton. Despite not being with her romantically, Angela often acknowledged Gotti’s persistence, and they eventually became friends, though Gotti always made it clear that he wanted to be more.
In October 2022, Angela quietly confirmed that Gotti got the wish he had been waiting on for seven years.

October 2023 — Rumors swirl that Yo Gotti cheated on Angela Simmons.
Say it ain’t so! After a year or so of dating and multiple years of chasing her down, rumors swirled in October 2023 that Gotti may not be as into Angela as we all believed.
On Oct. 20, a gossip site called Gossip of the City posted on X, formerly Twitter, that Gotti allegedly has someone outside his and Angela’s relationship. According to the page, the rapper spent time with his “nurse boo” and apparently neglected to invite Angela.
“Either Gotti and Angela broke up, or she is getting cheated on because he was with his nurse boo in Vegas last week at the Aria hotel,” the X post read.
Gossip of the City also posted Gotti’s reported mystery woman and called the woman “his real love.”
While neither Angela nor Gotti have confirmed the breakup or cheating rumors are true, the allegations claim Gotti distanced himself from Angela after TMZ reported she owes an estimated $48,000 in back rent from a New Jersey penthouse she rented in 2019.
