Lil Durk Was Only 16 When He Was Linked To Nicole Covone
Born Durk Derrick Banks in 1992, Lil Durk started his relationship with Nicole when he was still a teenager of only 16 years old while she was 18. The pair were first linked to each other in 2008. Details surrounding how they met and started dating were never made clear but they seemed to be very much in love that not long afterward, they decided to get married.
When they started dating, Banks had already started pursuing his career as an entertainer but he was still yet to get any serious acknowledgment or fame.
By 2011, the fame had started building up for Lil Durk. In that year, he welcomed his first child with Nicole, a son whom they named Angelo Banks. The rapper was 19 years old when he had his son. The young couple was keen on expanding their family and on 20 July 2013, they had another child, this time a daughter named Bella Banks.
Their Marriage Came To An End In 2013
5 years after their marriage and two kids between them, Nicole Covone and Lil Durk decided to end their marriage in 2013. That year was a very difficult one for the entrepreneur as it also happened to be the same year that she lost her mother, Diana M Covone, who died on October 6.
The reason for the divorce was said to be the cheating ways of her then-husband, Lil Durk who allegedly had affairs with other women. Nicole has never come out to make any statement about the end of the marriage, maintaining that she always keeps her business to herself.
The only time that she took a shot at the rapper was when he made a post one night, stating that he was going to take all his kids from his baby mamas and raise them in his mansion. Covone came for him stating that although he was a great dad to their two kids together, he knew what he was saying would not fly hence e should stop the foolery.
Where Is Nicole Covone Today?
Since her divorce from the rapper, Nicole Covone has continued to maintain a very private life. She has also been running her business, Credit Clique which is into providing customer services for financial institutions. She is the CEO of the company.
More so, the tattooed beauty lives in Chicago, Illinois where she was born and raised. From all indications, she is still not married although, in 2017, she shared a video of herself with another man on Facebook. Since then, she has continued to maintain a strong silence on all about her personal life.
In spite of the divorce, she is still very much in the lives of her kids just as Lil Durk.
Lil Durk Has Since Moved On With His Life
Since he parted ways with Nicole, Lil Durk has gone on to date several women. His exciting love life includes women such as Mia Burks who claimed that at some point, she had something with the rapper, although the exact period within which the alleged relationship happened was never revealed.
After his marriage, the next woman he was linked to in 2014 was fellow rapper, Dej Loaf. They were first linked to each other in August 2014 when they began spending so much time together. By 2015, it was clear that they were dating. To add more steam to the belief that something was going on, they worked on their hit song, My Beyonce which they released in 2015.
In 2016, they confirmed that they were no longer together but they were still friends. According to Durk, the reason why the relationship ended was that they were both very busy people and that did not afford them enough time to grow together as a couple.
The next woman in his life was a model named Takala Welch. The pair started dating in 2016 and a few months later, they parted ways. Not so much was said about this relationship as it did not last long.
