LHHH Masika Kalysha wants her ‘private life private’ after birthday boyfriend reveal

Masika Kalysha and Geno Smith 1

Are Masika Kalysia and Geno Smith dating — or are the LHHH star’s fans just misinterpreting a photo the two took together at her recent birthday party? Followers went wild trying to ID the man posing with Masika in a pic that had his head cropped out; now that he’s been identified, though, it looks like the Queen of Clap Back might not be too pleased.

Masika, who’s been teasing a fiery departure from Love & Hip Hop Hollywood for months, teased a “big birthday announcement” in an Instagram post before her June 7th bash. The first two photos in the update were of Masika posing in a gorgeous dress. But the third featured herself and a mystery man:

Of course, you can’t put the phrase “big birthday announcement” together with a photo like that and not expect the amateur sleuths of the internet to go crazy. Within hours, Masika’s would-be date had been identified: He’s former New York Giants and current Los Angeles Chargers backup quarterback Geno Smith.

Here’s a proper photo of Masika Kalysha and Geno Smith together, via @HollywoodUnlocked:

Since Geno was ID’d, none other than Love & Hip Hop home base VH1 has seemed to confirm the pair’s relationship. However, Masika appeared none too pleased with her fans’ quick detective work — she took to Twitter with a three-part head-shake directed at those same fans’ unwillingness to, in Masika’s words “keep [a] private life private”:

Masika will be back in action when Love & Hip Hop Hollywood Season 5 drops later this summer.
