JJ ‘KSI‘ Olatunji has always remained very secretive about his personal relationships, but he has now opened up about how he met his current girlfriend online and how they came to be.
KSI is hot off the biggest event in YouTube history, his successful boxing rematch against Logan Paul in November 2019, which ended in a victory for the Brit via split decision.
Despite being one of the biggest personalities on the face of the earth right now, he manages to keep his personal relationships to himself, with past girlfriends rarely being seen in the public eye.
Now, though, in an interview with Hollywood Life, KSI has finally spoken about his current girlfriend and how their relationship became what it is.
After being asked how he and his girlfriend first met, KSI said: “We met through Tinder. I broke up with my other ex, like, two months ago, and I was like ‘I’m just going to go ham on Tinder.’ I was going to just go through girls.”
He continued: “During that time I met her, and I was seeing other girls at the time, but I just kept gravitating towards her. I just liked her company a lot. And eventually, I started to really like her.”
The YouTube star didn’t say much else about their relationship, returning back to his more secretive self, but that may be the most KSI has spoken about his girlfriend publicly since they got together.
Elsewhere in the video, he also discussed his ongoing familial struggles with his brother, Deji, which he says is improving but some issues remain, saying that it “takes two to tango.”
He also speaks a lot about his music, the Logan Paul fight and his love of anime – as well as discussing whether the Sidemen will be running another charity football match any time soon.
KSI’s insistence on keeping his private life private has been a huge source of interest from his devoted fanbase, who want to know exactly what is going on behind the scenes.
Although this doesn’t answer a whole lot, maybe we’re seeing the start of JJ opening up more about what he’s got going on outside of his creative endeavors.
