Brandy and rapper Flo Rida have been spotted getting cozy – but is he her boyfriend?
“I’ve seen the photos of me and Flo Rida,” Brandy writes on her Vibe.com blog.
“I don’t want to say that we’re a couple. I can definitely say that he’s somebody in my life and I’m definitely interested but I’m not serious with anybody. I’m a little bit afraid to give my heart away right now. It’s very scary.”
One reason the singer’s so cautious about anything romantic? Her 7½-year-old daughter, Sy’rai.
