Tems alleges death threat over rumoured pregnancy for American rapper Future


Grammy Award winner singer Temilade Openiyi, popularly known as Tems, has addressed a rumour about her being pregnant for American rapper Future.

Tems sparked pregnancy rumours after she was spotted at Burberry’s Spring/Summer 2023 London Fashion Week show, rocking a black dress with a purple fluffy coat and matching heels.

Many, however, thought that she was pregnant due to the manner in which the dress clung to her body.

Speaking in a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM, Lagos, the Oscar-nominated singer said she got several messages on social media as many questioned her choice to befriend Future, who was allegedly responsible for her supposed pregnancy.

The 28-year-old added that she also received death threats.

While addressing the rumour, Tems stated that she has never met the Hollywood rapper, despite them working together on the rapper’s Grammy-winning song, ‘Wait For U’ alongside Drake.

She said: “When I heard that I was pregnant, I didn’t actually think anybody believed it. I didn’t know it was serious until I started getting messages like death threats, like, ‘How dare you? Of all the people in the world, Future, really?’ And I’ve never met him in my life. So it’s crazy.”
