One rapper has freely admitted that he once kept his dating life in the family, and he’s completely cool with that!

Kevin Gates confessed that he hooked up with his cousin back in the day. The rapper came clean during a chat with TMZ Live, where he said he dated the woman for two years.

Get this, though, they didn’t stop dating (and sleeping together–ewww) after they found out they were related. His grandmother told him they were cousins three months into their relationship and they kept dating anyway!

Kevin never got his granny to specify how closely they were related, so he has no clue whether his ex is his first or second cousin–It’s possible they may be more removed. The point is he knowingly dated his cousin for two years, and he does not regret the decision.

Kevin and his cousin are still close after having brought the term “kissing cousins” to hip-hop. We can only hope that they will not be featured on some installment of “Love & Hip Hop.”
