For several months, the relationship between Saweetie and YG has attracted public interest, notably exciting fans of the couple. Both prominent figures in the Hip Hop and staples on the West Coast, the pair captivated the hearts of many while they were together. However, recent development seems to prove that their romantic journey together may have come to an end. While fans were rooting for the couple, their relationship unfortunately lasted less than a year. Nevertheless, they seem to be ending things on a good note, so a win is a win. From its inception to its eventual end, here’s a timeline of YG and Saweetie’s relationship.

After being spotted together at an event in California on March 5, 2023, speculations started flying about the two being in a relationship. Subsequently, Saweetie’s appearance at YG’s all-red birthday party on March 8 slightly intensified the rumors. Many celebrities were in attendance, and the pair didn’t show any public displays of affection. As such, the rumors were largely unfounded. However, some fans insisted that the two were romantically involved. While it remains unclear if the two were already together in March, the speculating fans were soon proved right.
April 2023: More Public Appearances Fueling Dating Rumors
Following the first weekend of Coachella 2023, the Jasmine Brand reported that Saweetie and YG were seen getting cozy at the festival. If the dating rumors had been dying out, this news certainly brought them back to life. Subsequently, on April 18, the two were spotted again at Lala’s Wafflehouse in Indio, California. While Saweetie tried to mask her identity, fans always managed to recognize their fave. Altogether, their repeated sightings as a pair started making the rumors seem credible, and more people started believing them.
