How long have Lil Durk and India been in a relationship?
According to The Sun, Durk and India met in 2017 and got engaged in September the following year. She's a businesswoman and Instagram model with over 3 million followers across her social media. In addition, she has her own cosmetics line called India Royale Beauty and aims to help others begin their own beauty businesses as well with makeup and hair.
Durk and India have a child together named Willow Banks, and India has another child from a previous relationship. She vlogs about her personal life and her relationship with Durk on her YouTube channel. One from November 2018 titled "LABOR & DELIVERY | Did Daddy Pass Out?" is all about when Willow was born. The video shows clips of her giving birth, and she talks about what the overall process was like.
What happened during the shootout involving Lil Durk and India? It was a home invasion.
According to TMZ, on July 11, 2021, Lil Durk's Georgia home was broken into at 5 a.m. while he and India were sleeping. The unknown suspects were, unfortunately, able to get away, but not before they "exchanged gunfire" with the couple. Luckily everyone in the home is safe, but there is still a lot that needs to be figured out about how this happened.
As of now, who the suspects are — and even how many of them were able to enter Durk and India's home — is still unknown. They were able to get away from the scene before the cops arrived. There's also no word on why they attempted to break into the house and what they wanted from the couple. Neither Durk nor India has posted on social media about the incident.
To get more info, cops are asking for help from the public to figure out who the intruders are.
During a live Twitch stream, commentator DJ Akademiks said that there may have been a police raid at Durk's home. "Lil Durk’s residence in Atlanta had heavy police presence and was possibly raided due to an investigation about a shooting and other crimes,” Akademiks said on July 12. "They said there was an alleged shooting around where he lived at."
