On Wednesday (Apr. 1), Da Baby met his childhood crush, Raven-Symone, just minutes after going on Instagram Live with the actress. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, and against nationwide social distancing recommendations, Da Baby and Raven-Symone were close to each other and even hugging.

At some point during the encounter, DaBaby’s mask even fell away from his mouth and Symone didn’t have one on at all. “You’re not supposed to be this close to me,” Symone said with a giggle in an Instagram Live video that was shared during the encounter.

“Let me put my mask on,” Da Baby replied before singing “Reunited and it feels so good.” “Turnt! Watch I get the coronavirus because of this one right here,” Symone said before giggling. “Don’t do that,” Da Baby responded.

“I’m a lesbian after this,” Da Baby says while Symone looks at the North Carolina rapper with a side-eye. “Get off of me, boy,” Symone then said before removing herself from DaBaby’s embrace.

DaBaby then told the actress that “it was a pleasure” meeting her, and Symone said “same to you,” before telling DaBaby to take them off of Instagram Live. DaBaby then told an unidentified male to hold his phone but to leave Instagram Live on because he was “locked in,” for the rest of the day. Take a look at the encounter below.
