Naomi Osaka’s boyfriend, Cordae seemed to have heeded to corrections.
The American rapper had made an endearing two-word tribute to Naomi Osaka after winning the Australian Open on Saturday night to bag her 4th grand slam title.
Osaka destroyed Jennifer Brady within 77 minutes, with 6-4 6-3 sealing her 2nd Australian Open title. That was awesome , right?
One of those to have paid tribute to Osaka on Saturday night happens to be her boyfriend, rapper Cordae.
He, actually, couldn’t travel to Australia with Osaka for the 2021 1st grand slam, but surely following the progress at home.
The Grammy-nominated rapper had posted a picture of his girl holding the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup on Instagram, with the caption “The One”.
Cordae’s celebration was actually in complete contrast to what happened at the US Open in 2020 when he got himself in a mess in New York.
He was cheering in the stands on his girl as she won her 3rd grand slam title in September, but sparked viral controversy when he was captured flipping his middle finger at the camera in celebratory photos.
Osaka,23, had been undefeated throughout the tournament making outstanding victories even against notable players like Serena William, in the quarter finals.
Osaka, who earned a whopping $37.4 million from prize money and endorsement deals in 2020,according to Forbes was awarded a sum of $2.1 million for winning the Australian Open on Saturday which has made her the current highest paid female athlete globally.
