The beef between the rappers took a more drastic turn in March when Benny was spotted hanging out with Freddie’s baby mama. A video of the pair surfaced on social media, revealing that Benny brought Destini, who goes by The Fit Mami, an iced-out chain.

While its unclear if the two are dating, some believe Benny and Destini were trolling Freddie – who got his chain snatched in Destini’s presence.

The feud between Freddie and Benny is not the only bit of controversy that Freddie has been involved in. On Valentine’s Day 2024, Destini shared an NSFW photo of Freddie online.
