Ellen DeGeneres has done everything she possibly could to help Naomi Osaka bag a date with Michael B. Jordan, and now her constant meddling has finally paid off.
DeGeneres sent Osaka, who turned 21 on Tuesday, a birthday pic of a nearly nude Jordan earlier this week. Despite the snap going down a storm with Osaka (and the rest of the online world), Jordan wasn’t 100 per cent happy with the choice of pic and insisted on sending her a more recent one.
The actor then invited the tennis pro to the “Creed II” premiere, with Osaka replying: “What is going on??” before she added that she would love to go.
DeGeneres eventually chimed in, “You’re welcome, Naomi.”
The talk-show host’s matchmaking comes after she teased Osaka about her love for Jordan on her show.
“I’m just trying to help,” DeGeneres insisted, after telling the athlete she’d try and set them up right away.
