The pair shocked fans earlier in the week with the revelation that Blackwell is living with Diplo, with many voicing their concerns about the 22-year age gap between the two.

“I’m an adult. I’m not being groomed. Platonic relationships exist,” Blackwell wrote in response. “I’ve been living here over a year…I’d rather break both of my legs and before forced to walk than pursue Diplo romantically and he’d rather choke. He’s barley [sic] in LA bc he’s so busy.”

She continued, “Diplo has given me the opportunity and security to create. Diplo and his team are my mentors in LA and they are my safety net. Diplo and his team have saved me numerous times from the weirdos in LA. My parents trust him. I trust him. Y’all are making me feel icky. Diplo is my LA dad..nothing more.”
