Ashanti has a new man in her life.

The Foolish singer has been giving hints for weeks, but she finally gave her biggest hint on social media. Ashanti sent out a birthday tweet to San Fransico 49er Darnell Dockett. The defensive tackle and the singer are rumored to have been dating for months.

Ashanti posted on Twitter, “Happy Bday Baybayyyyyy lol @ddockett [birthday emojis]. Dockett replied, “thanks boo [kiss emoji]”

Ever since the two have been linked together, there are reports that Dockett is hiding a secret. Funky Dineva claims he attended the same college as Dockett and there were rumors he was gay.

Funky Dineva reports:

“Now look, I’m not one to gossip, so y’all ain’t heard this from me. I attended Florida State University (FSU) from 2001 – 2005. During that time, Darnell Docket was one of the star athletes on campus. Aside from being a star, he was also the talk of the union. From the moment I stepped foot on FSU’s campus, rumors of being gay plagued Darnell.”

“The campus folklore was that several chicks reported that he asked them could he screw them in the butt, and Darnell was known to have kept some fishy male company. I don’t know…”

But Dineva is not the first person to make these claims. Florida State quarterback Chris Rix went on a radio show and suggested that fellow Seminole teammate Dockett is gay in February 2013.

Rix told comedian Jay Mohr, who asked Rix whether Dockett has always been so boisterous. He replied:

“There was always jokes about Darnell, and what his preference was in college, if I might. Because there was a few incidents of him hanging out with some dudes in the Union and some other stuff,” Rix said. “Mohr goes on to ask if other guys ever made fun of Dockett’s sexuality to his face, to which Rix replies, “Yes, they did. And he would get defensive at times, as most guys would. But let’s just say that there were a few stories of ‘Why is Darnell hanging out at this guy’s house or this guy’s dorm room?’

Dockett threatened to beat Rix up when he saw him, so Dineva may want to hire a bodyguard.

DARNELLDockett and Ashanti have not confirmed or denied that they are dating.
