Is Bronny James dating Amara Wayans? Let's look at what we know about this rumored new young love. 

1. Is Bronny James dating Amara Wayans? He's left flirty comments on her Instagram page. 

Wayans posted a photo on Instagram about a week ago, where she's wearing a cute black cropped top with some jeans and some fresh and clean sneakers. It didn't take long for James to come on her page and leave heart-eye emojis all over the post, causing wild speculation that Wayans and James were an item. You can check out the photo below.

2. Who is Bronny James?

15-year-old LeBron Raymone James Jr., better known as "Bronny," has basketball in his blood. The son of NBA great LeBron James and his longtime wife, Savannah, James is currently attending Sierra Canyon School in Chatsworth, a suburb of Los Angeles. Perhaps unsurprisingly, James has also already received several NCAA Division I offers, thereby all but guaranteeing him a career in basketball like his father.

3. Who is Amara Wayans?

17-year-old Amara Wayans is the daughter of Damon Wayans, Jr, the granddaughter of Damon Wayans, Sr., and a member of the Wayans family of actors and producers. Wayans' mother is Aja Metoyer, who has another daughter with Wayans Jr., as well. However, Wayans' mother and father were never married.

4. Wayans is also the half-sister of Dwyane Wade's "break baby."

If Wayans' mother's name sounds familiar, it should: she's also the mother of Dwyane Wade's so-called "break baby." In 2013, Wade addressed the existence of his son with Metoyer during a press conference. He said that he and his wife, Gabrielle Union, had a "part in our break," and his son with Metoyer was conceived during that time. Metoyer — who is perhaps best known for her role on Basketball Wives — says that she was never "the other woman," and refuses to call her son a "break baby." Metoyer also made clear that she wasn't with Wayans at the time her son with Wade was conceived.

5. James also goes to school with another of Dwyane Wade's sons. 

In what can only be described as an unbelievable coincidence, Bronny James may be well known on the basketball court in his high school, but he has another famous teammate! Zaire Wade, who is the son of Dwyane Wade and his first wife, also plays basketball at the Sierra Canyon school, and the boys are reportedly good friends.

6. Neither James nor Wayans have commented on the rumors. 

As of this writing, neither James nor Wayans have commented on the rumors about their dating status. It's perhaps just as well, since they're both teenagers. However, we'll keep you posted if any statements are forthcoming.
