August Alsina’s legion of female fans is sad today, as the internet is running wild with the story that he just came out of the closet. The historically flamboyant star has used his universal appeal to attract an audience rich with straight women and men. Well, it’s his male fans celebrating today while the women realize that maybe August has been dealing with his “love” a lot longer than they realize.
A deep dive into August Alsina’s Instagram account will reveal that the man who came out at the end of the episode as his “new love” is singer and model Lazu. Immediately following the viral clip fans have took to social media to learn more about Lazu and realized he’s been around. Zu has been a fixture on August’s social media accounts for quite some time now. He’s actually released music with August in the past, their latest collaboration being June’s “2 AM.” “Go listen to my first single! Stop playin.. #2am #zu,” he captioned the post.
Fans have already started flooding his comments with mentions of his appearance on the Surreal Life, saying, “Well, I guess august like them young,” and “Who’s doing the bendingggg ?” Some have been more supportive, saying, “I been in love with Aug since I was 12. I’m happy he found love, and I’m happy you love him!” Others have speculated that he and August are brothers based on some of August’s captions, but one person put that to rest, saying, “People saying that’s his brother clearly can’t look up who Augusta brothers really are, so unless he’s some hidden brother we knew nothing about.”
Over on his own page, fans are revisiting a July post from the boys where they wished August’s mother a Happy Birthday. The boys are giggly as they smile and pose for the camera. This is the post that had some confused that they might actually be siblings since Zu says, “love you, ma!” “Her clearly said our mom🙄,” commented one fan. Someone else said, “Boy is this ya man or not?!🙄.”
It’s obvious the men are close from how much they’ve been posting together, even modeling shirtless for an Encina ad in June. So are they lovers, brothers, or just friends? Guess we have to wait till the Surreal Life returns to find out.
