There’s going to be a new baby in Hollywood! R&B singer Cassie is reportedly expecting her first child with new boyfriend, Alex Fine.
Cassie and Fine have been together for only half a year. Fine, who works as a physical trainer, originally met the singer when he was giving her lessons. They first went public with their romance in December. Although neither Cassie nor Fine have publicly commented on the baby buzz, The Shade Room was the first to break the news, claiming a source confirmed, “[She is] preggers by her new boo.”
This celebrity pregnancy is even more surprising given that Cassie broke up with her long-time love, rapper P. Diddy, only eight months ago after a decade-long relationship. The former couple, who first got together in 2007, announced their break-up last October. Neither star gave a reason for their impromptu break-up, though they’d had a tumultuous relationship in the past. In August of 2016, the couple briefly broke up after a volatile argument led to police intervening.
In November of 2018, a month after their break-up, the news broke that P. Diddy’s ex-partner and the mother of four of his children, Kim Porter, had unexpectedly passed due to an overdose. The pair were together from 1994 to 2007, after which Diddy moved on with Cassie. Although some fans have gone online to criticize Cassie for moving on so quickly despite what her ex is going through, others have come to her defence.
“I think it’s so ridiculous that men are calling Cassie “trash” for getting pregnant while Diddy is grieving over the loss of his ex wife... like what are women supposed to do?” @kattttherineeee wrote.
This past January, a source told People that Diddy was upset after Cassie began posting photos of her new man.
“If there is anyone who knows how absolutely devastated Diddy has been since Kim’s death, it’s Cassie,” the source said. “He can’t believe she feels the need to post pictures with her new guy. It’s like she did it to upset Diddy more.” They added, “The whole situation is just ridiculous.”
Given that Diddy hasn’t publicly congratulated his ex on her baby news, there could very well still be hard feelings between these former lovers!
