Doja Cat wouldn’t be dating anyone at this point as she hasn’t announced anything on the subject nor has she given any indication that she has a romantic partner.
Although Doja Cat is characterized for not being afraid to speak her mind and often interacting with her fans on her social media accounts, she prefers to keep the details of her romantic relationships private.
Past relationships and rumours
Did Doja Cat date French Montana?
In late September 2020, Doja Cat and fellow rapper French Montana were spotted on a yacht together. While the pair were not alone in what appeared to be a small group of friends, rumors and speculation quickly spread that there was a romantic relationship between them.
However on one Tweet posted on Oct. 1, Doja Cat denied dating Montana: “Frans and I put out a song. F*ckin relax.” She gave no further details about the upcoming track, though hinted that the collaboration also included Megan Thee Stallion, as she liked a Tweet from a fan suggesting it.
While Doja Cat’s words were enough to end the rumors between her and Montana, he did not address the issue as his romantic life was already under public scrutiny at the time. Recently, he was accused of having a relationship with “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality TV show star NeNe Leakes, who is married.
French Montana – whose real name is Karim Kharbouch – has dated many celebrities and models, including Iggy Azalea, Evelyn Lozada and Alexis Skyy. However, his relationship that was most widely known to date was with Khloé Kardashian, whom he dated from 2014 to 2015.
Doja’s ex-boyfriend – Who is Johnny Utah?
Despite being in the music industry for several years, Doja Cat’s only publicly known relationship to date has been with Jacob Sullenger, better known by his stage names Johnny Utah and JAWNY. Although he remains an indie and somewhat alternative artist, he has made a name for himself through his characteristic funky music style and vocals.
Doja Cat’s romance with Utah — who is also a producer and songwriter — began in late 2019 after watching the music video for his single “Honeypie,” as she recalled, “I liked the way you moved.” I don’t know, it was your pants. I was like, Oh, I like your pants.”
Mesmerized by his personal style—though not so much by his music, Utah affirmed—she went on to comment on one of his Instagram posts “I love you honey,” to which Utah replied, “Hey girl, I just showed this picture to my nephew and I told him we’re together.” Now don’t make me look like a liar. He looks up to me.’
After that brief internet interaction, the couple met in real life and soon confirmed their relationship. However, they were not together for long as in February 2020 they separated.
On an Instagram Live, Doja Cat confirmed that she had unfollowed Utah on every social media account, also adding “everything is fine” and “(it) just didn’t work out”, confirming that the relationship is back to normal reasons ended, and nothing dramatic had happened between them.
Who is Doja Cat?
Doja Cat – whose real name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini – is an American singer and rapper born on October 21, 1995 in Los Angeles, California, USA. She rose to prominence with her album “Hot Pink” in 2020.
Amala Dlamini is the daughter and only child of Deborah Elizabeth Sawyer and Dumisani Dlamini. Shortly after she was born, Amala and her mother moved to New York, where they remained for five years until they returned to California. Amala’s father – a producer and actor of South African descent – was not present in her life during her childhood.
Although Dumisani Dlamini often comments on his daughter’s Instagram posts, she feels a little uncomfortable with this, as she shared The fader“I don’t hold a grudge against him or anything in any way, but it’s obviously a little weird.”
Amala Dlamini spent her childhood skating and dancing, although she also developed an interest in music early on. In addition to taking jazz lessons, she was also influenced by artists such as Jamiroquai and Tupac.
However, Rihanna’s “Music By The Sun” was the first album the teenage Amala bought, which eventually led her to start singing and create her own sound. However, her lack of self-confidence hindered her growth as an artist a bit: ‘I think I wanted to sing, but I just couldn’t because I was so shy’. Amala continued and said she thought her mother would be upset if she heard her singing too loudly in her bedroom.
Deciding on music was her way to go and her true passion, Amala eventually dropped out of high school at the age of 16.
Despite her shyness, Doja Cat started creating and producing her own music in her teens and uploading it to SoundCloud, though most of these songs were deleted by herself not long after.
Her earliest recorded song on the internet – “So High” – dates back to 2012: ‘I got two likes, but it was the craziest thing ever. I think I cried. It was insane.”
It was during these early stages of her career that she chose her stage name, inspired by her love of cats and “doja,” an alternative street name for marijuana. She said Dazed“I was heavily addicted to weed and weed culture, so when I started rapping I thought about the word ‘doja’ and how it sounds like a girl’s name.”
After the release of “So High”, Doja Cat was signed by RCA Records in association with Kemosabe Records, managed by Dr. Luke. This helped her to release her first extended play (EP) “Purrr!” end of 2014.
Although “Purrr!” achieved moderate success, it wasn’t enough to give Doja Cat the recognition she was looking for. However, she did not give up on her dream and continued making music, and in March 2018 she released her first full-length album titled “Amala”.
Although “Amala” did not initially catch the attention of the media, the album was later re-released in 2019 and her career started to take off. One of the new songs – “Mooo!” — is an offbeat but entertaining cow-themed song inspired by one of her costumes: “The shirt was so ridiculous I thought, maybe that would be cool if I just made a song about cows,” she told The Fader.
Not only did she make the song alone, the music video was produced entirely by herself: ‘(it) only took about five and a half to six hours. I stayed up until about 3 am. The song eventually achieved moderate success, although the music video went viral on YouTube.
Doja Cat then released a remix of the song “Juicy”, featuring Tyga. This was her first Billboard hit song and her first certified platinum work.
However, Doja Cat’s real fame would come soon. The song “Bottom Bitch” was released in October 2019, followed by the song “Rules” later that month. In November, Doja Cat’s new album titled “Hot Pink” was officially released and charted at number nine on Billboard.
Due to its increasing popularity online – it became a viral TikTok challenge – Doja Cat’s song “Say So” was released as an individual single in January 2020, and soon reached number five on Billboard’s Hot 100 list, becoming her first single to reach the top ten of a regular chart.

In May of that year, the song was re-released as a remix featuring Nicky Minaj, achieving massive success as it topped the Billboard chart and became Doja’s first number-one song.
In early 2020, Doja’s “Hot Pink Tour” was suspended due to the unforeseen circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Doja Cat has continued to work hard and collaborate with international artists such as The Weeknd, Lil Wayne and Ozuna.
As of the end of 2020, Doja Cat has an estimated net worth of $4 million, owing to her successful career as a singer and rapper.
Doja Cat is a woman of mixed ethnicity, characterized by her beautiful facial features and curvy figure. She is 1.65 m tall and weighs about 55 kg.
In November 2020, Doja Cat confessed to her Twitter account that she was ‘tired’ of “Say So”.
During her teenage years, she practiced Hinduism.
