Ever since [artist id="678"]Brandy[/artist] and [artist id="2583152"]Flo Rida[/artist] were spotted together at her 31st birthday party in Miami this February, there have been rumors of their romance. Last week, the singer decided to address the talk directly, and wrote in her blog that while she wasn’t ready to say whether she’s officially dating the rapper, that they are definitely feeling it out.
“I’ve seen the photos of me and Flo Rida,” she wrote in her Vibe.com blog last week. “It doesn’t matter how we met. We met. I don’t want to say that we’re a couple. I can definitely say that he’s somebody in my life, and I’m definitely interested but I’m not serious with anybody. I’m a little bit afraid to give my heart away right now. It’s very scary. I’m open to it, but I just want to make sure that I’m taking my time.”
Brandy — who has a 7-year-old-daughter, Sy’rai, 3rd graf–Smith that her marriage to producer Robert Smith , which ended in 2003 — notes that being a mom and dating isn’t always easy to balance out. “My daughter hasn’t seen me with anybody in five years,” she said on the blog. “I’m very, very selective when it comes to that because I want to make sure that it’s real. I don’t want her to see me with just anybody because she means everything to me.”
While admitting her own reluctance to take the leap, Brandy gave some encouraging advice to her fans. “I’m scared to give my heart away,” she wrote. “I don’t know where to find a good guy. I just think that they’re around and I think you have to be good and at some point you’ll attract that. I really believe that. First, people should stop looking. The looking thing does not work. Just let love find you.”
Perhaps not so coincidentally, Brandy’s revelation came just before the Sunday premiere of her new VH1 reality show with her brother, “Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business.”
