Ryder Ripps & Azealia Banks: Dating, Engaged, Wedding
By now, we know Ryder and Azealia are not just in love but also engaged. And that the outspoken and controversy-prone Azealia has converted herself to a Jew.
Until now, no one knew for sure, how long the pair have been dating. It was only in early Feb. 2021, when Azealia for the very first time hinted at their otherwise secret romance.
They started making subtle appearances on each other social media only in Feb. 2021. Like the time when Ryder shared a solo snap of Azealia writing, “life is love and food” for a caption or the time when Azealia shared a capture with bare-chested Ryder giving her a peck.
Later, the same month, came in this announcement from Azealia, who had freshly made headlines for making earrings from the bones of her dead cat Lucifer.
“I just got engaged kunts. I’m crying 😭…. I’m Jewish now. MAZEL TOV BITCHES! WE IN HERE…. YERRRRRRR”
Still, their relationship dynamics and wedding plans remained unheard topics to their fans.
Yet to feature properly and publicly in a picture alongside Ryder, Azealia was previously linked to Bring It On actor Jesse Bradford and a happily-married comedian Dave Chappelle.
