Who Could Lil Nas X’s Boyfriend Be?

By David T. Valentin


The rumor mills are turning as Lil Nas X in a recent interview mentions he feels his current boyfriend is “the one.”


In an interview with Variety, Lil Nas X talks all things music, life, and love. When discussing his “Sun Goes Down” music video, Lil Nas X explained that it was his way of confronting his childhood memories, the good and the bad, saying, “I’ve had some good boyfriends and some bad ones. A lot of them were emotionally unavailable or had a lot of insecurity and what not. But I’ve found someone special now. I think this is the one.”


And although he gave us a sliver of his personal love life, there isn’t much else known about who Lil Nas X’s partner is nor too many clues to find a name. Still, that doesn’t stop people from theorizing.


When the interview dropped, all eyes fell on Yai Ariza, Lil Naz’s backup dancer, the same backup dancer the singer shared a passionate kiss with at the BET Awards in June.
