FACT CHECK: Did Takeoff and Katy Perry go on a date? Rumors Explained


The music industry collapsed on the shocking news of the death of Migos rapper Takeoff. The rapper was shot in the head early in the morning on Tuesday, November 1 at a bowling alley in Houston, Texas. After a fight broke out during a game of dice, gunfire was heard and law enforcement arrived at the crime scene to see another Migos member, the rapper’s uncle, Quavo, leaning against Takeoff’s body. Takeoff was declared dead on the spot. Two other people at the scene were injured but survived the accident. The perpetrator has not yet been arrested. A prominent figure in the hip-hop community, Takeoff has been at the center of attention in many cases.

However, he was known for his straightforward and easygoing personality, and like any superstar, he was likely to be exposed to rumors. His professional and personal life has been featured on many occasions. After his death, fans got to know more about his life, explicitly with whom he dated. In 2017, rumors circulated that the rapper was in a relationship with pop star Katy Perry. The investigation into the rapper’s tragic death is still ongoing. It is estimated that there were more than 50 people at the crime scene, and Quavo was one of them. At a press conference reporting Takeoff’s death, Houston Police Chief Tory Finner approached the witnesses and asked for ‘progress’ that could help the investigation.

In May 2017, it was reported that Katy Perry and Takeoff were dating online after collaborating on her single Bon Appetit. Migos was featured in the song, appeared in a music video, and performed the track together on an episode of Saturday Night Live (SNL). A 2017 report from Hollywood Life claimed they went to an SNL after-party together and it was work, but none of the stars heard the rumor. Not long after the pair became romantically linked, rumors of a possible beef relationship between Katy Perry and Takeoff disappeared again.

According to a June 2017 report from the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, Katy Perry unfollowed Migos on Instagram and stopped all communication. Still, she hasn’t talked about the possibility of a breakup with either of the stars, and it appears they haven’t been in touch since. It’s been a long time since the dating rumors came out, and neither Katy Perry nor Takeoff have confirmed whether they were actually dating. Obviously, that didn’t stop the report from reappearing on Twitter. At the time of his death, Takeoff is not known to have dated anyone and has consistently kept his romantic life extremely hidden. Like Katy Perry, Takeoff has been romantically linked to rapper Dream Doll, artists Rubi Rose and Lakeya Darshay. In any case, Migos rapper Takeoff hasn’t announced an official girlfriend on the internet, and the 28-year-old has no children.
