Social media has been excited at the prospect of Nia Long and Omarion potentially becoming an item, though the actress clarified that she’s “AF single!”
Nia quickly grabbed Omarion’s hand at the movie premiere friends everyone
Speculation about Nia and Omarion stems from the couple’s footage at the movie’s premiere friends everyone.
Specifically, Omarion uploaded a short video of him next to Nia, and it shows the actress pulling his arm for a brief moment.
Although the gesture was like a hand-pulling, it wasn’t so serious as if they were actually holding hands. However, this interaction is enough to spark some fun conversations and funny reactions on social media!
Social media immediately reacted to the speculation
After Omarion uploaded the clip, people on Twitter began to buzz about the issue.
Many humorously expressed how devastated they were at the prospect of them being together.

It is also speculated that Omarion may have attracted Nia with a specific set of skills, represented by a watermelon in his time. Verzuz.

Alas! Nia entered Shade room To clarify: ‘Simmer Down!’
With all the rumors about Nia and Omarion, the actress stepped in and made it clear that — despite the optics — she is indeed “single AF.” She also candidly asks “everyone to simmer.”
So while Nia and Omarion weren’t together, at least various Twitter users talked about the celebrities in a quick minute!
Do you think the speculation is unfounded, or do you think Omarion knew what he was doing by posting videos of the interaction?
