Fans are perplexed about Young Thug’s relationship status with fiancée Jerrika Karlae after he ignited dating rumors with singer Mariah The Scientist. Many have suggested that the longtime partners may have split up due to the rapper’s new dating drama.
Young Thug’s label, YSL Records, originally linked Mariah The Scientist and Young Thug when the latter’s label shared photographs of the two warming up to each other at a party. In one of the photographs, the Always n Forever singer can also be seen cuddling The London hitmaker.

More recently, the two were seen together at an NFL game between the Falcons and the Patriots, fueling romance suspicions even more. Jerrika Karlae recently stated that her relationship with Young Thug is still going strong, prompting the current rumors.
In August, the Karlae Swimwear founder also sent Young Thug a $100,000 birthday gift. It’s unclear whether the couple just split up or if the latter is still romantically involved with Mariah The Scientist.
Jerikka Karlae is the fiancée of Young Thug.
Throughout his career, Young Thug has been associated to a number of ladies, but his longest relationship was with Jerrika Karlae. The couple allegedly met at Gucci Mane’s studio and became famous after getting engaged in 2015.
Jerrika Karlae is a model, entrepreneur, social media influencer, and singer. She grew up in Georgia after being born in North Carolina. Nekia Hauser, her mother, previously handled Young Dolph and Young Scooter.
Karlae grew up accompanying her mother in recording sessions, concerts, and photoshoots, according to TIDAL. In 2014, the 28-year-old started her career as an Instagram influencer and also launched her own swimsuit line, Karlae Swimwear.
Following several years of acquaintance, the entrepreneur gained notoriety when she began dating the Hot singer. Since their engagement, the couple has stayed inseparable, but their relationship apparently encountered a hard point a few years later.
Jerrika Karlae sent out a strange tweet in 2020, prompting followers to think that it was meant at her fiance:
“That’s some narcissistic s**t. You behind the scenes painting pictures of me, like ima f***ed up individual … when you the devil.”

The rapper, on the other hand, refuted the charges and stated that he had been single for two years. Karlae surprised fans when talking about her connection with Young Thug in an August interview with HotNewHipHop, revealing that the two had a “undeniable bond”:
“We have an undeniable bond. We love each other to death, in a weird way. Right now, we’re in the process of just proving that we’re not going to be Mr. and Mrs. Smith and try to tear each other’s heads off. We’re just vibing and enjoying life, but that’s my baby and vice versa.”
Despite their seven-year relationship, she also stated that the couple was not looking forward to getting married right now:
“I just want us to be on the same page and focus on having so much fun. When we first met, I was really hard on him. But now, I just want us both to enjoy these experiences, be grateful, and enjoy our lives. With my journey in music and him being a CEO, I can’t see us getting married right now.
Jerrika further continued:
I feel like now we need to focus on being artists and living our lives because we were together since we were like babies. We never got to take a breather and not think about marriage and other scary stuff.”

Unfortunately, the duo is most likely to have broken up again, as Young Thug has recently been linked to Mariah The Scientist.
