Rumored couple Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose continue to tease fans a bit longer by posing for a seductive photo shoot for the new issue of FADER.
Recalling his time with Wiz, FADER photographer Ross Mantle opened up about the experience.
For FADER Issue #72 we traveled to Los Angeles and spent the better part of a week with Wiz Khalifa. After, we emerged from a cloud of one-billion joints with a story about what it means to become famous now, and a lot of incredible images. Relatively new FADER photographer Ross Mantle shot Wiz in the center of a music video shoot and documented some of the first days of his relationship with Amber Rose. Mantle said, “He’s pretty down to earth. I don’t know if he’s going to get a head about him later on, but he has a bit of a young ego. I think to be in the position he’s in you have to have something like that to begin with.” (The FADER)
A few weeks ago, Wiz admitted to introducing his mom to Rose.
“She was dying to come to a show, I was dying to have her at a show, it was a good opportunity,” Wiz said speaking of Amber Rose. “[She met my mom], that was actually at Pittsburgh, at the AFC Championship. That was like a pretty big moment. People don’t know. We both travel a lot…She was close. Like I said, I was on tour at the time, we’re both really, really busy. It was convenient…I’m working hard as h*ll man.” (In Flex We Trust)
Since early this year, Rose and Khalifa have hinted at their romance.
Since splitting from longtime boyfriend Kanye West last year, Rose has been linked to several rappers, but Khalifa appears to be her newest flame. The two were spotted out and about in Los Angeles, and have shared their adoration for one another over Twitter. “I need my baby,” Rose tweeted. “I’m so in LOVE I don’t care what anyone says that’s my baby I found happiness my heart is with Cam.” At press time, Rose refused to comment on the matter, noting that any further announcement regarding her relationship status would be released through her lawyer.

Initial footage of Rose and Khalifa’s public romp hit the Internet in early January.
It looks like Amber Rose is quite popular amongst hip-hop’s top rappers. Spotted over at Karen Civil, a video of Amber walking down the Los Angeles streets with Wiz Khalifa and it raises the question: Are these two more than friends? Amber has been linked to rappers Fabolous and Kanye West, so getting up with Wiz wouldn’t be a shocker. However, these two have been in touch for a while now–when Wiz was shooting his “Black and Yellow” remix video, Amber was hanging out with him. She even tweeted they may be working together. (Dr Jays)
