“Each collection represents a unique theme and caters to highlighting your figure and flaunting the skin you’re in!

What is the drama involving Lil Tjay, Lala, and Rubi Rose?
Lil Tjay and Lala have had their fair share of relationship drama.
The rapper was reportedly linked to another rapper, Rubi Rose, before he began dating Lala.
Lala and Rubi had been best friends but had a falling out after Lala and Lil Tjay became an item.
On October 1, 2020, Rubi tweeted: “When a b**** backstab her friend, her favorite thing to say is they were never really friends lol” followed by a weary face emoji.
According to Distractify, in March 2021, social media users saw that Lala and Tjay had unfollowed each other, sparking rumors of a split.
The publication stated that Lala talked about the topic on Instagram Live and “told commenters to ‘stay in their lane.'”
It continued: “While Lala didn’t say if she and Tjay were still together, she said any problems they were going through weren’t her fault.”
While Rubi and Lil Tjay appear to now be on good terms, Hotnewwhiphop.com reported that Rubi and Lala have not spoken since the fallout.
As of January 2023, it is unclear exactly where Lala and Lil Tjay’s relationship stands.
