"This is my body. These are my tattoos."

Bhad Bhabie has explained the reason behind the "Kentrell" tattoo on the side of the hand in honour of rapper NBA YoungBoy, 19.

Basically, there's been rumours that Bhad Bhabie had been secretly dating NBA YoungBoy – born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden – since 2018, when she posted a Snapchat image of herself lying in bed with an unidentified man. Bhad Bhabie decided to conceal his face slightly with an emoji but fans quickly noted that the man's face tattoos were suspiciously similar to NBA YoungBoy's.

And then, whilst Bhad Bhabie was performing at a gig, people noticed a new tattoo on her hand that read "Kentrell" in red script writing.

Bhad Bhabie denied it, though, and claimed that the tattoo read: "Kentucky," because, you know, who doesn't need a permanent reminder of their love of fried chicken on their hand.

Anyway, there's no denying it now because a new close-up image posted on Bhad Bhabie's Instagram Story confirms that it's definitely 19-year-old YoungBoy's name on there. Big YIKES.

Naturally, people had a lot to say about the teenager's new ink, so Bhad Bhabie decided to clear up the relationship rumours once and for all on Instagram Live.

"This is my body. These are my tattoos," she stated. "I do my own shit for my own reasons. Y'all don't know behind the scenes. Stop telling me he how has a girlfriend. I did not get this tattoo to be with him or because I'm with him. Like, c'mon, Stop. Seriously. Stop the bullshit. Stop. Y'all sound crazy." 

However, clearly not satisfied she headed to her Instagram Story to share a photo of the two of them with a long caption on their relationship.

"Lemme tell y'all something about this boy right here," she wrote. "This gotta b the most talented person I've ever met. Not only is he talented but he has a amazing heart and he truly is a good person I'm tired of seeing y'all bash him and talk bad about him y'all only speak on what you see but what y'all don't seem to realise is he really been through some shit thats what makes him act how he do. Y'all don't know him like I do.

"My tattoo has our own personal meaning behind it I shouldn't have to sit here and explain myself but I'm gonna. The truth is no we are not together but we will always b a part of each other's life's no matter what anyone got to say. We've played a big part in each other's life's and helped each other through a lot of shit. We talk all the time and no one will ever change that. I by his side till he die and even after that. Kentrell I love you 4L [sic]."
