Is Rico Nasty Dating? Her Boyfriend

Delving into Rico Nasty’s dating life, she was in a relationship with Malik Foxx in the past. Rico and Malik began dating in 2016.

After dating for two years, the couple began searching for a house together to live in. They attended several public events together and also gave insights into their love life through social media.

However, Rico has now revealed that she was physically abused by her boyfriend through her Instagram post, which is now deleted.

Earlier this year on March 28, Rico posted that she has been a victim of physical assault by her long-time boyfriend, Malik Foxx.

She shared,

“I can’t believe u just put your hands on me. And I didn’t even touch you @dodontsay_.” She continued, “Guess I’m one of ‘them’ now.”

“So lemme get this straight. U go through my phone for yearsssss. I finally ask for yours and can’t see it. @dodontsay_ u dead to me. u a liar.”

She continued,

“Years of f–king torture,” the Poppin rapper continued. “Can’t do s–t. And now I wanna see what u been up to and I can’t? Ur crazy as s–t. All the s–t you’ve done to me??????????”

“Lmaoaoaoaoaoa, he probably about to log into my s–t and delete this. I swear I hate my life.”

Not long after Rico deleted her posts regarding the allegations, Malik tried to clear his name through his Instagram post. He said that he was “chased, threatened, and had things thrown at him” when he asked Rico to leave him alone. He then put her outside and locked the door.

Malik wrote,

“@riconasty You’ve painted a picture that i hit you last night and that’s a lie I didn’t put my hands on you You attacked me And i asked you to leave and you wouldn’t so i got you out my room and locked the door Your legit crazy! You posted that bullshit ass lie and deleted it seconds later because your cap You a liar and you fasho ain’t shit for this one Stop tryna trash my name bro That’s shit ain’t cool You can be mad all you want about the relationship but don’t label me a woman beater That’s not at all what it is.”

Months after the allegation, it’s not clear whether Rico is still together with her boyfriend Malik or not. She has deleted all the pictures with Malik on Instagram because of which her fans have speculated that they might have broken up.

Rico has also collaborated with Tinder to help users to find a match on a deeper level. She made a cameo in Tinder’s Swipe Night which follows a group of friends facing the end of the world with only hours to live.

Talking about the series during an interview with Essence, the rapper also opened up about the Tinder profile which would catch her eye. She said,

“A Tinder profile that would catch my eye would probably be one with the least info on it so I can meet them in person and really see what’s up, just in case they were gassing their profile.”

Her Previous Relationship And Son

Rico was pregnant with her son when she was a teenager. She was just 18 years old when she welcomed a baby boy named Cameron with her late partner Brandon. Brandon was Rico’s best friend and boyfriend who passed away due to Asthma when Rico was still pregnant with their baby.

Rico paid tribute to Brandon on Tales of Tacobella with her song title “Brandon” in 2017.

The rapper is so much attached to her son which is evident in her social media posts. She is working hard with the raps so that her son doesn’t have to follow in her footsteps.

Rico doesn’t want her son to pursue what she is doing; she wants him to be something bigger than this.

She wants her son to pursue a career in any creative stuff rather than rapping which makes good use of his time. She is fighting to ensure that her family doesn’t have to struggle as much as she did.

Rico imagines peace and balance in her son’s life and is currently focused on it right now.
