It looks like Erykah Badu and the man in her life are getting pretty serious. The “Bag Lady” singer sparked engagement rumors to 27-year-old artist JaRon Adkison after she shared a sweet message along with a photo dump that included a photo of the couple wearing matching rings.
“Solar Eclipse Dump. Making room for many many many more memories,” Erykah wrote.
“Right now , Moon covers the suns eyes forcing it to use other forms of vision. (Closes Eyes) I see you with my heart. I see you with my gut. Here’s to my GUY ✨& Setting intentions, Breathing easy, moving in unison, finely blended family harmonics. Thank you . Thank you . Thank you . Happy to be here on this school called earth.. with you . ❤️ @jaronthesecret(family first 🤲🏾)."
The last photo in the carousel showed the couple sporting green fabric-made rings that resembled an engagement ring and band.
While neither one of them officially announced their engagement, fans believed the photo was all they needed to see to believe that the beloved singer was engaged. Fans and celebs like Summer Walker and Taraji P. Henson congratulated the couple and sent well wishes.
It’s unknown when the couple began dating, but Erykah, who turned 50 in February, began sharing images with JaRon, who goes by JaRon the Secret, back in October. However, the two were spotted together in August in Martha’s Vineyard after the singer attended former President Barack Obama’s 60th birthday party.
According to his Instagram bio, JaRon is an artist, songwriter, music producer, audio engineer, and author who hails from Dallas, Texas. He also recently co-created a music playlist with Erykah for Headspace.
While there’s no known prior dating history on JaRon, Erykah has been romantically linked to André 3000, Common, Jay Electronica, The D.O.C., and The Boondocks producer Carl Jones.
The “Honey” singer has three kids, Seven, 24, Puma, 17, and Mars, 12.
