Rap newcomer Wiz Khalifa has dismissed rumours his romance with Kanye West's model ex Amber Rose is all for publicity, insisting their relationship is "pretty serious".
The Black and Yellow star was first linked to Rose earlier this year (11) but they only went public with their romance at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas in March (11), when they were inseparable.
Khalifa has now spoken out about his love for Rose, revealing he's really falling for the curvaceous beauty.
Speaking to New York radio host Angie Martinez, he says, "It’s pretty serious. I really, really dig her. People think it’s an image thing and that we’re just doing it to be crazy, but like, for real, for real, it’s just two great people meeting at a good time.
"We just like to crack jokes and stuff like that. She’s very down to earth, she’s very realistic, and that’s the way that I am. Just seeing stuff for what it is and not being blinded by the lights... She is womanly. I need that."
And the young rapper is adamant he's not fazed by Rose's previous high-profile relationship with West, which ended last year (10).
He adds, "That’s just life. Individuals grow apart from each other and then they grow with other people...
"I’ma be with her. That’s why we wanted to give it to the world (go public). But it’s realistic. It’s nothing that we’re just beefing up or just doing for anybody’s eyes. It’s real. She’s a great girl. I really, really am into her."
