R & B singer Tinashe loves dating NBA players. In the past she's been romantically linked with Kevin Durant, Ben Simmons, Jordan Clarkson, and JR Smith. Now she's dating another baller - Los Angeles Lakers' Kyle Kuzma.

This relationship, however, didn't evolve out of nowhere. Apparently, the two light skinned celebs have known each other for years, MTO News has confirmed. But the couple hooked up  on New Year's Eve, when they both attended the New Year's Eve celebration at Delilah's in Los Angeles.

One of Tinashe's friends told MTO News, "Kylie was [Tinashe]'s New Years kiss."

And yesterday the two all but made their relationship official. They both posted the same image to their IGs:


Tinashe was a child actress, before becoming an R&B singer.  She moved to Los Angeles as a child to pursue a career in entertainment. Her notable roles included as a motion-capture model in the animated film The Polar Express (2004), Robin Wheeler in the Cartoon Network television series Out of Jimmy's Head (2007–2008), and a recurring role in the CBS series Two and a Half Men (2008–2009).

Tinashe's debut single, "2 On", reached number one on the Rhythmic airplay chart, and peaked at number 24 on the Billboard Hot 100. Her debut studio album, Aquarius (2014), was noted by music critics as one of the most “solid” debuts by a new female artist in years. The album garnered her nominations for Soul Train and BET Awards.

Tinashe's second studio album Nightride (2016) reached number 8 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in the US. Joyride (2018), her third studio album, peaked at number 58 on the Billboard 200 chart and reached number 6 on the UK R&B Albums chart.
