Blac Chyna certainly knows how to create a buzz.
The curvaceous model and entrepreneur posted a mysterious photo on Sunday featuring her well-manicured hand with the name “Future” freshly tattooed on the side. The post was captioned, “Thought it was a drought,” which is the title of one of the tracks off Future’s 2015 album, DS2.
Blac Chyna has been rumored to be dating the Atlanta-born rapper for almost a month now, ever since she was spotted visiting him on the set of his music video for the song “Stick Talk.” They have also been seen spending time together on multiple occasions over the past weeks, although no confirmation has been released by either party.
The said post has amassed more than 60,000 likes within just 12 hours. Comments were mixed, with some of her followers expressing their support for the pairing and others warning her about Future’s track record with his ex-fiancée, Ciara.
The rapper-singer was previously engaged to R&B star Ciara in October of 2013 but broke up in August of the following year allegedly due to rumors of Future cheating on Ciara while she was eight months pregnant with their son, Future Zahir.

Ever since the dating rumors surfaced, Blac Chyna has received some negative feedback from Future’s fans, Ciara’s fans, and even hers. Some people have commented that the magazine model was a “downgrade” from Ciara, who has done a lot of fashion modeling herself.
On the flip side, some commenters declared that Blac Chyna “upgraded” by dating Future after her ex-fiancé, Tyga.
While some people deem the pairing as “unexpected,” Blac Chyna and Future actually have certain things in common, specifically the status of their previous relationships.
Tyga broke up with Blac Chyna in August last year and quickly got close to reality star Kylie Jenner, who was only 17-years-old at the time. It did not take long after Tyga and Kylie’s rumored romance became official that Blac Chyna got into a social media “feud” of sorts with the young Jenner.
Fans waited in anticipation at the back-and-forth photos that both ladies would post on their respective Instagram pages as a way of “throwing shade” at each other.
Meanwhile, Blac Chyna’s best friend and frequent cohort Amber Rose revealed during a radio interview that Tyga texted his ex numerous times about getting back together and being a “family” again while hanging out with Jenner.
The outspoken Rose, who also had her own beef with another member of the Kardashian-Jenner family, was engaged in a feud of her own, but not with Kim – it was with Khloé.
After dissing Tyga for dating an underage girl, Khloé quickly came to her little sister’s defense and brought up Rose’s stripping past.
The word war has since simmered down, although Rose recently commented again about Tyga and Kylie. In an interview with GQ magazine, Rose alleges that Tyga had been texting Blac Chyna behind Kylie’s back.
Future, on the other hand, is dealing with some family drama of his own regarding co-parenting his 1-year-old son with Ciara. After the split with Future, Ciara was reported to be dating Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson. Ciara has posted several photos of herself, Wilson, and little Future Zahir spending time together. Future is reportedly not too happy about the new boyfriend’s “closeness” with his son, which he believes is a publicity stunt.

“I’m cool with him being around [my son], but certain situations, we all in the public eye, you can’t move around with my son a certain kind of way, you know what I’m saying?” said the rapper about Wilson.
He further states that all these photos are part of a plot to take away some of the attention from him and the success of his album and possibly paint a picture of him as an absentee father.
“I feel like a lot of moves are just made out of just being evil, basically. Because, you know, the success of my album and you still want to make certain moves to take the spotlight off me a little bit and shed light on a negative situation,” he added.
While both Blac Chyna and Future seemed to have moved on from their respective exes, people can only speculate as to the real score between them right now.
