So, who is Saweetie dating?

After Saweetie and Quavo's very public breakup in March 2021, she was single and living her best hot girl summer. In an interview with E!'s Nightly Pop, as reported by Hot New Hip Hop, Saweetie spent May 2021 waving off dating rumors. "What is my love life like? It's the pillows, the studio, and putting more money into my bank account," the songstress proclaimed.

Saweetie also offered some sage words of wisdom to her female listeners, adding, "This is for all my women out there. I just feel like, after a relationship, relationships take up a lot of time. So, right now, I'm just getting back to self because perfecting my craft is my No. 1 priority and if, you know, if Cupid finds me and shoots me, then shoot me, baby."

On Nov. 8, 2021, Snowfall actor Damson Idris took to Instagram stories (captured by The Shade Room) to share a rather interesting video of Saweetie playing the piano in a black and white aesthetic.

"Saweetie My Teacher," Damson wrote over the video.

As the video ends, the pair busts out into laughter.

Once social media users got wind of the video, users took it as confirmation of a romance, but neither of them ever said anything confirming a relationship.

Fans once believed that Saweetie was being romanced by Roddy Ricch.

Let's be honest: Saweetie is beautiful, talented, and has a great personality. So, it's easy to see why she's had her share of suitors on the entertainment industry. We're looking at you, Jack Harlow!

However, Jack and Damson are not the only celebrities that the Bay Area femcee has been linked to. On Oct. 22, 2021, Saweetie and rapper Roddy Ricch were seen sitting next to each other at the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Phoenix Suns game, according to CleanBowled. And over the weekend, photos of the two hit all of the social media blogs.

Saweetie has also been linked to NBA player James Harden.

If you've been keeping your ear to the blogs, then you're likely aware of the rumors surrounding NBA player James Harden and Saweetie. Reports shared that the baller sent her $100,000 and a date request via CashApp (which James went on to deny).

MTO News spoke with someone who was reportedly associated with Saweetie to break the story in June 2021.

If that isn't enough to convince you, it appears Offset — who is a cousin to Saweetie's ex Quavo — stepped into the ring. A tweet posted June 7, 2021, reads, "Now why TF are people saying Saweetie and James Harden fw each other..." Offset liked the tweet, sparking fan speculation everywhere. Some took this as confirmation that Saweetie was with the professional athlete.

Others were more skeptical of the couple, as neither party had even remotely confirmed their relationship. One tweet read, "Yesterday Saweetie was with Soulja Boy. Today she's with James Harden. I can’t wait to see who y’all put her with tomorrow."

With all the rumors that have been going around, will Saweetie confirm her relationship status? We highly doubt it. After all, it's really none of our business. But, either way, we applaud this "ICY GRL" for getting her well-deserved flowers!
