Rubi Rose, the model and rapper with a substantial fanbase, has caught the attention of former NBA star Paul Pierce. Pierce, known for his time with the Boston Celtics, responded to a photo of Rose on Twitter, openly admitting his crush on her. This admission sparked reactions on the platform, with one fan teasing Pierce about his age. Unfazed, Pierce humorously clapped back.
Rose noticed Pierce's comment and playfully invited him to text her, providing a phone number connected to her Laylo account—a service that allows creators to connect with their fans via text updates. The flirtatious back-and-forth ignited debates on social media, with discussions focusing on the 20-year age gap between the two.
The exchange has been met with various reactions, from support to skepticism about the potential mismatch. While Rose's personal life often makes headlines, she continues to focus on her music career, recently releasing a new single titled "Hood Bitch Aesthetic" through Interscope Records.
