Naomi is Osaka hinted of having a new boyfriend earlier in the year when she posted a funny video on Instagram with the rapper YBN Coardae. While she didn’t confirm that she was dating the American, the former world no.1 was seen frequently with the headphones. Later she revealed during an interview that she was listening to this album ‘The Lost Boy’ and the rapper is (of course) YBN Cordae.

Naomi’s boyfriend appeared also in her box during the US Open and he later admitted that he was dating the Japanese during a radio interview when he also disclosed how they met. However, Naomi is well known to be quite reserved and she has never made an official announcement.
Naomi happy and grateful to have her boyfriend
Finally, Osaka decided to make the relationship “official” with a nice post when she was with her boyfriend in Hollywood. Naomi posted the following message: “Very grateful you’re in my life, always learning from you, always inspired by you. Also, always VERY entertained by you lol. Love ya kid.”
That happened before Naomi had to fly in Tokyo where she will compete in the upcoming Toray Pan Pacific Open that will commence next week.
