Diggs and Jones would continue to add more fuel to the fire and seemingly confirm their relationship in February after she publicly declared her love for the “Best Man” actor in an Instagram post.
Since then, the duo has become an instant favorite among fans on social media by sharing viral dancing and singing clips. All appeared to be going well for the couple until July 11, when Diggs was asked questions about his newfound relationship during an interview with Fox 5 New York.
When asked what’s going on with him and Jones as the news outlet showcased a clip of them hanging out, Diggs said, “We’re cool, we’re enjoying ourselves.”
He added, “We’re having a lot of fun. These are crazy times, so we’re just trying to have as much fun as we can. And that kind of helps us out. We are always looking at opportunities to laugh at ourselves.”
Following Diggs’ response, the interviewer pressed the 51-year-old to publicly confirm that he is in a committed union with Jones by saying, “Everyone wants to know if there is a commitment or something.”
Diggs avoided the question by neither confirming nor denying anything. He simply said, “I’m sure they are. I’m sure they are wondering that I would too.” The video ends with Diggs laughing and the subject immediately being shifted.
As the video circulated online, many claimed that Diggs’ coy response about his relationship with Jones reminded them of Diddy’s attitude with the media when discussing Yung Miami. Several others also expressed that Diggs’ answer displayed that he wanted people to mind their business.
“This a Diddy answer.”
“Taking the Diddy approach ‘she’s cool, we’re having alot of fun.’ “
“He gave a diddy answer mind y’all business.”
“The most polite way to say ‘mind your business.’ “
“It’s giving, it’s none of your business vibes and I respect that!!”
“I like how he didn’t answer the question. It’s no one’s business. They’re probably still figuring it out themselves..”
Although details surrounding Diggs and Jones’ official title may be unclear to the public, this interview comes weeks after he shared a video of himself serenading how much he missed her.
