Coi Leray has been dating Toronto rapper Pressa for about a year or so and the two are very open about their relationship having been seen together on red carpets and are frequently on one another’s social media. Before her relationship with Pressa, there were rumors that Coi might have been interested in women. In an Instagram Live with her “Blick Blick” collaborator Nicki Minaj, Coi decided to put the rumors to rest and share the moment she realized she wasn’t a lesbian.
“No, no, no. I like d—,” Leray said. “No. I ate p—- before, though. It just wasn’t for me. After I was in it, that’s when I realized! I was like, ‘Listen, this is not for me. This is not my type of thing.’”
This was the Instagram Live that Nicki told Coi that “y’all have never experienced hate the way I have experienced,” when the New Jersey native was saying how hard it is to be a woman rapper in this industry.
“Y’all have just experienced some of the growing pains of artistry and of social media,” Nicki said. “Y’all be thinking y’all have experienced hate and trust me, ya ain’t experienced it yet. A lot of y’all have gotten, not coddled, people have been nice. People have been gentle with y’all.”
Coi quickly came to the Pink Friday creator’s defense on Twitter when fans thought Nicki was being too hard on her.
“She basically told me don’t let y’all wack a– comments and negative energy stop me now because MORE MONEY AND SUCCESS More problems so THUG THAT S— OUT,” Coi wrote.
