Azealia Banks and Jesse Bradford are the latest pair surrounded by dating rumors. Banks and Bradford spent a lot of time together at Coachella this weekend. According to Us Magazine, several sources saw the couple spending time together through the three-day event. Banks was one of the performers at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival.
In fact, Mail Online reported that 35-year-old Jesse Bradford was watching the 23-year-old rapper perform from backstage during her show. However, Banks did not want the event press to photograph the two of them together.
The pair did attend one party together during the weekend. On Friday, the pair was seen at the Nylon Midnight Garden party. One witness that attended the event shared a bit about their behavior during the outing with Us Magazine.
“They were sitting next to each other and whispering with their hands on each other’s laps at one point. They were hooking up and together all night.”
Banks and Bradford may not have let the press take photos of them during the weekend, but Banks did not hide that she was spending time with Bradford. She shared two photos on Instagram featuring the two of them together at different times during the three-day event. The first photo was a goofy photo with her making a funny face. The second was a simple pose.

Neither Banks nor Bradford has confirmed that they are an item. Their reps have also stayed silent. Both Banks and Bradford have kept their dating lives private in the past. Bradford said he was “single but dating” when interviewed by E! News two years ago. In 2012, Banks revealed she was bisexual. Bradford did mention Banks on his Twitter back in September, but it was a simple tweet stating that he was a fan of hers.

Azealia Banks has been at the center of a lot controversy in recent months. Two interviews have landed her in hot water. According to a previous Inquisitr report, she spoke about romance and love with Billboard Magazine.
During the interview, she shared that she wanted to sleep with Barack Obama because she loved his big ears. She also shared the type of man that she would like to be with when she did decide to date someone.
“I love security guards. They’re these big meathead bald white guys with blue eyes. I want a really smart man, who has a lot of silly jokes and stuff. I have to tone it down if I want to get that.”
However, her recent Playboy interview caused her the most trouble. According to CNN, the rapper shared a very strongly word rant about America and all the things she hates about it during the interview.
“It’s always about race. Lorde can run her mouth and talk sh*t about all these other b***hes, but y’all aren’t saying she’s angry. If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner. Really, the generational effects of Jim Crow and poverty linger on. As long as I have my money, I’m getting the f**k out of here and I’m gonna leave y’all to your own devices. I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma — that’s really America.”
Banks also lashed out at fellow music artists Pharell and Kanye West. She said they played “the game” in order for people to like them.
As for her new rumored relationship with Jesse Bradford, people are talking about the pair on social media. The buzz about the potential couple is on the positive side.
