The rumors are true: Hollywood socialite Amber Rose and up-and-coming Atlanta rapper 21 Savage took their budding relationship public on Thursday.

The new couple was seen leaving the popular celebrity hotspot Catch LA restaurant while holding hands after a romantic dinner in West Hollywood.

Rumors swirled last week that the former stripper and the 24-year-old rapper, whose real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, were dating hot and heavy after hooking up in Atlanta when she hosted a party at a nightclub.

33-year-old Rose has a long history of failed relationships with both men and women. She is best known for dating troubled rapper Kanye West.

21 Savage is best known for his mixtapes and EPs with Metro Boomin.

    I can't keep up with her love life. Whatever happened to her talk show on VH1?

  • MzKeriBabee

    No offense to 21 Savage, but it seems like Amber will do anything to stay in the spotlight... this is not a good look... she hasn't upgraded at all... IMO

  • Wellbalancedlibra

    These women are predators. They love them some fresh young rapper meat.

  • Coy little wink

    She hustling backwards...shoulda just stayed with Wiz...

    Issa knife on his forehead

  • sunni_daze

    She just went down hill with her selection since her Kanye days.

  • Ni Ni

    He looks like a demon in that top pic

  • Dee

  • Dee

  • datATLboi

    She just keeps going backwards lol

  • BlahBlahBlah

    Men don't care about slores no mo? Sloppy 2nd's? Or Sloppy 443rd's? ijs

  • blackbutter63

    WTH is a 21 Savage? To each his/her own. I guess.

  • BlahBlahBlah

    Who ever is hot at the time and dumb pretty much

  • Queen B

    He looking like you sure this gonna work lol

  • stav

    I'm surprised Sandra didn't start talking body language, because he looks quite hesitant like he's pulling back, and she's gripping his hand , he's not reciprocating. I think the look on his face says it all, he just wants to hit( and has) , he's not trying to appear as a couple, because they are not!

  • Yetunde

    She's going backwards.

  • Vonn

    I like her shoes.

  • tintin

    Amber has no filter for her poussay

  • 100milesperhour

    Wiz has a steady boo, so she has to appear happy w/somebody...and he's it.

  • Scromes1212

    You don't wife her, you one night her smh

  • Vonn

    Like the episode of Good Times when Ned the wino' s wife wanted him back after the Evans cleaned him up. Ned was pulling back like do I have to go?

  • Jen_no_juice

    she'll accept anybody as a money donor

  • Benita Renee’

    Well he worth like 10 million

  • BRuhman_Vista

    This woman has a small child to raise. Is the only option a rapper or a baller? Couldn't she use her "womanly charms" to attract some well to do corporate exec type --- you know, someone with actual assets and a solid net worth?

    Say what you want about Eve, but she decided to get with a man that has "means" and looks to be set for a while. Amber better start thinking about her and her kid's future and stop running around like some groupie in heat.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I'm really tired of hearing bout migos everyday

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Well she does have a type...the ugly type.

  • Keesh5000

    IF his name is 21 Savage... Who is 22 Savage????

  • Heartland
  • HalleMerry

    She sure does like the 'interesting' looking ones.

  • leapyearpisces

    Keesh I ONLY know this, because I have teenagers, but evidently there are crew of savages, like their are a crew of ASAP's,

  • leapyearpisces

    I am starting to think that Amber Rose is now some welcome trinket when you get into the industry. In regular folks terms, you know how if you buy / join a timeshare, they will give you a free 50 inch flat screen as a gift- yeah, I am thinking Amber Rose is that 50 inch flat screen.

  • leapyearpisces

    Moonwalk hustling.....

  • BRuhman_Vista

    If true, must be some Jay-Z, Illuminati mess.

  • Rayne

    She whores 24-7. She need to give that thang a rest.

  • BRuhman_Vista

    Yep. Sure he is.

  • Rayne

    You say she on the welcome committee. Lmao

  • Hugga Bunch

    He looks like something you were this close to running over. That or an Indo. An Indo is someone you hide in the house and whenever he asks to meet your friends, you tell him you aint got no damn friends.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    He look like his breaf stank soooooooo bad

  • Libra80sBaby


  • Courtney Wheeler

    im done thinking she has any intellectual prowess

  • Anunnaki

    Wonder if those 10mill have life insurance, hard assets, family foundation building. Or will he need a gofundme

  • Carrington

    I understand wanting to stay in your lifestyle, but come on, Amber... you're too old to be running around with 20-ish rappers. Find a successful man your age and keep it going.

  • SummerBaby

    She's only 33?! ?

  • ViolettaBliss

    He's not even holding her hand while she grips his. SMH


    Nah this chick probably 36 or 38 but bcuz of the entertainment biz, they knocking off a few years. All I know is 21 Savage looks like he should have been called doodoo bcuz dude is butt ugly!


    It sounds good but she can't do it bcuz she's too street and strip clubbish. Meaning she doesn't think highly of herself, like why pick the same type of guys, like try a different type of man and profession.

  • NoTsWeAtiNgThEsMaLlThInGs

    22 Savage was a joke that went to far!

  • Lisa daniels

    So basically two dirty looking people found one another.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    OK. I guess we'll give this maybe 3-4 months.
    Nothing much to see here.

  • Lisa daniels

    Well, she is need of a bath her damn self.

  • Lisa daniels

    Yep, she the starter bish

  • hottlanta

    Eve is wife#4. When men marry like that in number sequences you are replaced real quick. I am sure all of his other wives felt that they were marrying a man of mean and to be set for awhile. All the corporate executive types are being laid off their jobs after working there for over 20 years.

  • Lisa daniels

    45 days

  • Wreckognize Game


  • Ni Ni

    When she first came out, it was always reported she was the same age as Kanye, maybe a year or two younger.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Amber has zero taste. That's confirmed now.

    I don't know why anybody would date 21 Savage; he looks dirty and crazy.

    Amber should be ashamed of herself, but of course she doesn't. She enjoys her life as a truck stop for industry men.

  • Karen Brady


  • Karen Brady

    I don't know why but she looks like his mom in these pics... the way they're holding hands and he's behind her.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Ms. Cree

    They look odd together. Is there anyone in Hollywood she won't smash? My lawd!!! She for everybody. Apparently smashing the homies is excepted. Who gon' wife her though?

  • Quitedeliteful

    Amber Rose is a pretty woman but it seems like she'll 'date' anybody as long as they are in entertainment -- it don't matter who they are or what they look like -- if they are in the entertainment business she's down...

  • Roderick2011

    That nig has a cross on his forehead as if it were still Ash Wednesday.
    BTW Amber seems to have a type-- cockroach UGLY!!!!!

  • SDot

    This ain't real and its proves she just want fame. First off she's old enough to be his mom and Def old enough to look like his AUNTIE like she already does in these pics.

    SAD! JUST SAD! He's not even holding her hand! LMAO!

  • SDot

    well said

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Amber rose must be who the rappers must go through as part of initiation into the industry..the hazing part ...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Amber can't be serious. This has to be a photo-op. Girlfriend gonna fuq all of Tinseltown?!?!?

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    He's infatuated and as soon as she start actin like his momma and tryna control him it'll be a wrap! Her puzzay got skid marks longer than 72 hour marathon!

  • Quitedeliteful


  • PrettyBrown28

    Nope...her type is young, dumb, and the easily impressed...

  • Ni Ni

    Carrington, the woman is just trash and she attracts it as well. You got to call a spade a spade. Now, i would love to see Amber get saved and become that first lady we know she could be, but she enjoys the trashy lifestyle. If a good dude does come along and sweep her up, she'll only end up ruining him unless she has been completely changed.

  • Ni Ni

    Her and them Kardashians chile.

  • hottlanta

    You know good and well if she dated Cecil from the mailroom at State Farm Insurance this board will light up like a Xmas tree. So she gotta stick with what she knows.

  • hottlanta

    I guess Imma run past them during the ATL Peachtree Road next Tuesday.

  • hottlanta

    She worried about gripping that wallet.

  • stav

    Gonna!!! I think it's too late for that.

  • Quitedeliteful


  • LeXx

    ????? she be having ANY OL THING in her ?.....#ewww

  • Smith Jane

    Seriously? C0ckr0@ch ugly? Is that a swipe at his complexion? C00ns such as yourself love throwing around buzz words like gremlin, c0ckr0@ch, gorillas, predators when describing males that just so happen to be dark skin. You need to step away from the keyboard, your self-h@tred is showing.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Now this is so true -- If I even get a whiff of gossip that she's dating Cecil from the mailroom at State Farm Ima be the first one on here dragging her through the mud!!! Girlfriend can't win either way... LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Ugh I really had high hopes for this girl after Kayne. Now she just bopping around holding hands and parading around any nicca with money. Yall saw the spin she did in front of K. Durant. She's such a thirst monster now. That nicca dont even look like he wash his hands smh...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yup!!! With these young, dumb ones she is always the HNIC....

  • Nita

  • Ryan

    When your "sponsor" looks like something that's been living under a damn bridge for years it might be time to get out of the game.

  • VV

    You know what...I can't play with yall tuhday! I almost spit out my lunch laughing so hard at your comment.

  • The Realest 514

    Poor Amber. She's starting to look rather long in the tooth. She's too old to be trying to snag an up n coming artist. She nabbed Wiz cause he stay high. No one in their sober mind with 'wife' her. I liked her better when she didn't speak.

  • imright

    Amber is always on the market??

  • Harley

    Just nasty attention slore

  • Reina1718

    He looks lost lol

  • ebonics

    I remember alot of people saying how ugly that Travis Scott dude is, and to me hes not terribly ugly.. but this dude up top... YIKES! He looks "touched", like semi slow. She def has a type tho, super skinny lanky guys.

  • Brandy Lexine


  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I wonder about her 'THOUGHTS".

  • Brit brat

    do you notice how stiff this man hand nooooooo

  • Renee26

    They're both using each other....I would think she wouldn't have to stoop that low now since she is getting her own coins but I guess she isn't doing too well. Stripper mentality

  • My Opinion

    He won the auction

  • leapyearpisces bad for saying they are a crew. Let me rephrase and say its a whole GAGGLE of them now. 21,22,23,24,26... #amess. LOL

  • kelz

    If that look on her face is an expression of love/like my man? I don't want know parts of's looking at him like ewww.

  • leapyearpisces

    Right. Like En Vogue said, give it up TURN IT LOOSE!!! Because times can't be that hard, chile. If I turn over and wake up to that in the middle of the night, I am shooting first and asking questions later.
    To get y'all over the mid-day hump. This man is so foolish. LOLOLOLOL. He has one about Gucci Man and Michael Jackson that is STOOPID!!! LOL

  • GrapeCrush

    How in the world did he EVER get a contract?? He sounds just AWFUL. I love Ambers' shoes though. #thatsalligot

  • pynkrose407

    I think she is attractive lady but really she the ultimate "groupie" never seen her dating an average joe and she will date anyone (Savage 21) to be relevant and get that "picture"

  • GrapeCrush

    Lol, he SOUNDS touched too!

  • Panther Charleston

    The unhappiness! Amber, if you don't want to date him, don't. Don't be driven by your insatiable need for...whatever.
    Plus, he looks like a playdate for your son.

  • Ryan

    ?? Noooooo not Shay Shay!!

  • Lovely1

    I laughed so loud just now. Omg.

  • SandraRose

    I couldn't believe my ears either. ?

  • Roderick2011

    Wow you read all of that into my comment?
    You have too much time on your hands matched with very little brain power.

    Do better!!

  • Bdot
  • Oh Tommie

    Her facial expression confirms my suspicions.... this ninja breath and body stank ?

  • Li

    I don't understand how these women find these skinny rappers attractive.

  • Li

    Never seen her date a "REAL" a baller or someone with class, like A-Rod.

  • yvette46

    She gotta go for younger rapper's because the older ones don't want her.?

  • Omandesert

    She definitely has a type. Skinny nigga's.

  • hotntot95

    Desperate doesn't look good on NOBODY?

  • Mrs.Meenie

    Tears are rolling down my cheeks right now...not from sadness but from pure laughter b/c that pic is priceless. I think that was my facial expression when I first seen the pic of Amber and 21 too.

  • Mrs.Meenie

    LMAO!!! Me too!!! Had to go in the other room and close the door and let it out! Too funny!

  • Mrs.Meenie

    I'm mad at how hard she clutching his hand and he aint clutching hers at all. I am truly embarrassed for Amber, I'm need her to change her dating preferences. Her last few picks have been questionable and then this one right here is just down right.......I will just leave it at that.

  • Bdot


  • teather

    If I were Amber I would f*ck with your heads on my every move, too. Everything this woman does ppl follow. They love to judge her but it's really that they just LOvE her. Or love to hate her. She's not WITH this guy. Amber doesn't RAISE men up, she gets raised up. This is just another reason to have her name in your mouths. I'd play y'all like a fiddle too. ANd this is coming from me who has no preference either way for this lady. I don't support nor resist her presence in the world. Try it, it works! :o)

  • teather

    He's too inexperienced to know that he needs to clutch her hand for this to really look real.

  • Judas & GOD

    thank you!

  • the conscious one

    This dude looks "touched" like the old people use say.

  • TeeTee

    Last of the Big Deck straight men syndrome if that is even a thing

  • TeeTee

    have fun.. I might pass you some water from the sideline!

  • Dainese

    She looks disgusted by him.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Come on, Amber. Smh. Are times this tough?


    Publicity stunt. They not fuking

  • Wayup!

    BINGO was his namO...??

  • leapyearpisces


  • Dahl

    Seems like he's looking at her with disdain, and is not into that hand-hold at all. Her neck/chin situation is looking very grandma-ish. Cute shoes tho...

  • lilred1

    Amber should be scared. That boy got crazy all in his eyes.

  • Crazy tee

    Savage means fierce, violent , uncontrolled, barbarian, wild man, and uncivilized....not sure if I would want to hook up with those combinations...good luck Amber

  • Renee Bee

    My LORDT! Why did I listen to the entire thing? Pure comedy!

  • Iraizehell

    She love these skinny, ugly ass men.

  • Joi Williams

    No Amber NO. What happened to dating a businessman that no one knows or eating at a restaurant where the Paps dont sit outside. Attention Seeking at its best, hope this is a promo for SlutWALK.

  • Guess Who

    She looks funky

  • GrapeCrush


  • Candance

    She loves those funny lookin n*****!!!!! Seriously 21 savage ain't never dealt with a body like that.... Dont hurt em Am!!!

  • tynamight

    I'm sure he's brilliant w/ a high IQ; however, he doesn't look that smart. And if this write-up is true, HE AIN'T THAT SMART FOR DATING Amber. That young lady has the worst reputation ever.

  • Jussjess25

    Amber does not carry on relationships with these men! She simply plays into what has made her rich and keeps people talking. She'll take a photo have naked with a different nobody amd get people talking. Its fake news yall. Dont get it twisted she is really a whore.. but at this point she know her lane and uses it to her advantage.

  • Jussjess25

  • MRiGOThim

    21 Savage looks a little dirty & scary, lol!!!

  • Dora LaBelle

    She trying to make some dude jealous, just not sure who it is at this point. I don't think she really into 21 Savage.

  • itsjismemelly

    he looks like mr burns the evil boss from the simpsons

  • JanusMaximus

    I feel like he's got more of a black Beavis look
