These days, she's not so tight-lipped.
"He's the sweetest; I love him," she told Big Boy on Real 92.3 in Los Angeles -- before catching herself, surprised that she let those three words slip for the world to hear.
The radio host gave her a chance to back away. "So, do you love Lil Wayne?"
She had no such plans, though. "I just said it!" she said. "I do. I do love him."
That's beautiful stuff, guys.
Though they collaborated on "Start a Fire" in November, the two have kept their relationship mostly behind closed doors, aside from a live performance and some paparazzi photos here and there. The singer says that's just the way they are.
"Honestly, he's not a public kind of guy; he's not a public figure," she said. "If you look at his Twitter, he tweets every now and then. He just started an Instagram. You don't really see him out much -- he really is like: studio, skatepark, eat, studio, skatepark."
She said she's tried skating herself, but is no good, so she'll just go hang out at the park while he skates.
Now that is love.
