The Belgian center forward’s girlfriend is an American rapper with 30 million followers, three Grammys and a great love for the NBA and baseball
A bit like the goal, he has rap in his head. Now she also has it on her heart. Romelu Lukaku has always listened, raps, tries free style and sings by heart the lyrics of the greats of the genre, from Tupac to 50 Cent: it’s a happy ritual in the days of the Belgian, but also a way to recharge before entering the field. After all, being part of Jay-Z’s stable was a dream come true: thanks to Beyonce’s husband and head of Roc Nation, the centre-forward with a passion for music has explored the American hip-hop scene from the inside out . It is no coincidence that in this very world he may have found love: she is a companion who cheers for him at San Siro hidden in the public, celebrates the Italian Cup by hopping on the lawn of the Olimpico stadium and then accompanies him as befits a wedding of the twin Lautaro on Lake Como. Before being a girlfriend, however, she remains a global superstar: she, Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, a 28-year-old Texan with the nickname “Megan Thee Stallion”, is one of the most famous singers in America and, in general, one of the most appreciated on the planet. Outside the confines of football, there is no doubt who is more famous of the two. Instagram is enough to act as a court: Big Rom’s 8 million followers pale in comparison to Megan’s 30 and more.
What a feeling
Lukaku has always fenced off his private life, he protects it as he does with every ball: it is difficult to snatch official indiscretions or confirmations from him, the gossip does not break through here because he does not accept intrusions. After all, only recently in an open-hearted interview for the docu “One for all” on Amazon Prime, the Belgian revealed that he has a second son, Jordan, one year old, in addition to five-year-old Romeo now famous among fans interisti. The recent presence in these places of the Junoesque artist had not gone unnoticed, also because she herself has disseminated Milanese photos on social networks. Then here are the shots stolen from the wedding of the Bull with Agustina last Monday: they are seen next to each other at dinner, then hand in hand along the lake.
Galeotta was Roc Nation, the agency to which the singer also belongs, then an instinctive feeling, common interests and the ease of communicating, given the fluency with which Rom uses English, did the rest. The knowledge started from further away, but has only deepened in recent months. If Rom has returned to the levels of the past, yes, it is due to the newfound physical explosiveness, but something will also have influenced this new serenity in the private sphere. While the Belgian tries to make room for the most prestigious of trophies, his girlfriend still has shelves full of awards: two BET Awards, two BET Hip Hop Awards, three Grammys, two MTV Video Music Awards just to limit ourselves to the last ones.
Megan Thee Stallion made a boom in 2019, the year of entry into Roc Nation, with the single “Hot Girl Summer”, number 11 on the Billboard chart. And by dint of collaborations she got even more on her: in 2020 the single “Savage” came first also thanks to her remix with Beyoncé. In the same year with Cardi B another worldwide hit entitled “WAP”. Among her TV hosts, live performances in the biggest arenas, growing fame and feminist commitment: for example, she was interviewed by Hillary Clinton in a docu-series with her daughter Chelsea about brave women of this era.
Another trait noticed at the wedding party is the manicure. Nails as sharp as blades: “It’s not just about being sexy, it’s about being confident…”, she once told Rolling Stone. Deep down, she seems to hear her boyfriend speaking: even in Romelu, strength grows with confidence. The rapper ended her relationship with Pardison Fontaine, another famous colleague, for a few months, but above all she closed one of those nasty stories that sometimes happen in the environment in court. In July 2020, she was shot and injured in the foot high as she tried to leave a pool party in Hollywood. The culprit is still a rapper, Tory Lanez, and for 20 years she should be in jail. In Milan with the placid Rom you don’t run these risks, if anything, with him you will be able to deepen your knowledge of that strange game called soccer. She, athletic physique and ancient passion for US sports, supports the Houston teams. She posed in a bikini for the Rockets in the NBA and on March 31st she made the Astros’ first symbolic pitch of the season as new MLB champions: going to the mound in the opening game is an honor that baseball only grants to the greats. In short, there is a heavyweight couple in the heart of Inter and a rap in Istanbul would be the best way to celebrate them.
