Lil Durk and Instagram model India Royale have been in an on-off relationship since 2017
The 'Backdoor' rapper and Royale welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Willow, in October 2018.
In January 2020, rumours surfaced claiming Durk and India were separating after they unfollowed each other on Instagram.
At the time, Durk alleged India had cheated on him with Young Thug on his Instagram Story. However, he later doubled back on his claims and wrote, "Don't get shot tryna be the n***a to comfort my b***h while we goin thru it."
Responding to the cheating rumours, he later tweeted, "India did not cheat on me she to 1000000 for that and respect herself 2much we will never let the internet break up our home y'all can keep trying tho. We don't care frfr."
Back in September 2020, Lil Durk and India sparked rumours they were engaged after the rapper shared a photo of a ring followed by a photograph of him kissing his long-term girlfriend.
The star used the photos as a way of slamming rumours that they had broken up, as the caption read, "Save the bulls**t we ain't never breaking up!!!! ReaL goals YouTube : INDIA ROYALE."
In May 2021, the pair were rocked with split rumours again after they reportedly unfollowed each other on Instagram once more. A slew of indirect tweets from Lil Durk also sparked speculation that India had been unfaithful.
However, Durk took to social media to dispute the claims and confirm he and India are still together. He wrote, "It p*ss me off how y’all change sh*t around tryna make it like somebody a h*e talking bout her like talking bout my kids kill that rumor my b*tch ain’t nun like you goofy h*es."
In October 2021, the couple proved they were still going strong with some loved-up photos on social media.
Lil Durk and Takala Welch reportedly dated each other in 2016.
Their relationship was short lived, with it beginning in November and ending in December that year.
The Atlanta model goes by the name of Takala W on her Instagram account, which boasts over 152k followers.
She has been an ambassador for Pretty Hair Weave and also worked as a club promoter at the nightclub SL Lounge ATL.
Lil Durk and rapstress Dej Loaf sparked dating rumours in August 2014 when the pair were spotted together frequently.
In 2015, the pair began spending a lot of time together and collaborated on a few songs. They released their hit 'My Beyonce' in November of 2015.
When the pair were photographed together and were seen kissing on stage, it seemed they had publicly confirmed their relationship.
However, they broke up by the end of 2016. In an 2016 interview with XXL, Loaf revealed that although she and Durk weren't together anymore, but they remained friends.
She said "I'm single," she stated. "I'm not sure if that's a rumor or not. Yeah, [Durk] is my guy. He just hit me up.".
Speaking about their break up, Durk said "It's just she super busy, I'm super busy and we need some time together so we can grow."
Lil Durk and Nicole Covone met each other for the first time in the summer of 2008, and got married soon after.
In 2011, the couple welcomed their first child together, Angelo Banks. Durk was just 17 years old at the time.
On 20 July 2013, it was reported that the pair welcomed their second child together, their daughter Bella Banks. The couple divorced shortly after Bella's arrival.
A few months after Bella was born, Durk became a father for the third time, but with another woman.
The pair divorced shortly afterwards.
Lil Durk and Mia Burks allegedly dated each other. However, it is unclear when the pair got together and ended.
In a 2017 interview, Mia’s ex friend spoke out to The Chicago Morning Takeover on 107.5 WGCI, alleging the pair dated.
The former friend says that Mia use to date rapper Lil Durk and Ryan Henry from VH1’s Black Ink Chicago.
