So, are the two back together?

Let's look at what we know about Jhené Aiko and the rumors of her potentially rekindled relationship with Big Sean.

1. Her mixed ethnicity made it hard for her to fit in as a kid

Jhené (pronounced Juh-nay) Aiko Efuru Chilombo, 31, was born on March 16, 1988 in Los Angeles to father, Karamo Chilombo, is a pediatrician of Native American, African-American, German-American and Jewish descent, and mother, Christina Yamamoto, is of Spanish, Dominican and Japanese descent. She's said that no cliques accepted her at school due to her mixed ethnicity, so she asked to be homeschooled insteaded.

She had four older full siblings, including sisters Mila J and Miyoko and brothers Jahi and Miyagi, as well as three paternal half-sisters, Kareena, Dio and Marcia. Tragically, she lost her brother Miyagi, who died of cancer in July of 2012 at the age of just 26, and for whom she wrote the song "For My Brother."

2. She been working in the music industry since she was a pre-teen

Her musical career began in 2002, contributing vocals to several recordings for boy band B2K, which featured Chris Stokes, Lil' Fizz, J-Boog, Raz-B and Omarion.

At 16, she asked to be released from her contract to focus on school. Soon after enrolling in college, her plans for returning to music were put on hold when she found out she was pregnant. Daughter Namiko Love Brown, who father is Omarion's brother and fellow R&B singer O'Ryan, was born in 2008.

Her profile on the website for promotion company AMF captures her nature beautifully:

"I signed to Epic/TUG as a 12 year old child, and asked to be released from both companies at the age of 16 to finish high school. I escaped the made up world of Hollywood to experience the natural beauty of the real world. I am a writer, so I never stopped writing. I am a singer, so I never stopped singing. I am a student of life, so I never stopped learning and experiencing.

"Shortly before I conceived my daughter, I stepped back into the field and took a meeting with a label head. In this meeting, I was innocently told, to sell myself when walking into these meetings. That’s when I decided I would sail my self rather than sell my self."

3. She's a proud vegan

Aiko received PETA's Sexiest Vegan Award in 2016, which she celebrated by posing nude for the animal rights organization's infamous "Drop the Fur" ad campaign.

She's said she "began the lifestyle after being hospitalized and told that her eating habits had been unhealthy."

4. Big Sean's dated Ariana Grande before — and after — his relationship with Aiko

Aiko and Sean, whose real name is Sean Michael Leonard Anderson, first collaborated on 2013 track "Beware", also featuring Lil Wayne. At the time, Aiko was dating producer Dot Da Genius and Sean was in a relationship with actress Naya Rivera. Sean moved on to date Ariana Grande for a few months, while Aiko got married — and then divorced three years later, which is when the two finally got together.

Rumors first surfaced the two had broken up around December of 2018, when it was revealed that Aiko had covered up her tattoo of Big Sean. They didn't confirm their breakup until March 2019, right after it was revealed that he'd been hanging out again with Ariana Grande.

It stands to mention just a few months earlier, on November 30, 2018, the video for Grande's hit "Thank u, next" premiered with a not-at-all subtle message to Sean: "So cute. So sweet. (Could still get it)."

So it's little surprise that many believe this line from Aiko and Big Sean's new song is Aiko's hat tip back to Grande:

"I've been hearin' things and seeing things and so it seems you movin' on from me/Of course you on the scene with little miss thing, and trust me she really don't want beef."
