I’m just going to, you know, stick with Kacey and that’s it. He has brothers and sisters from his dad’s side, so he is not going to really need them on my side.”
As Jania Meshell was not satisfied with her breast size and wanted to make them bigger, so she underwent botched plastic surgery in 2019.

Living in the spotlight can be both exciting and challenging at the same time. The media places a tremendous amount of scrutiny on everyone on whom they place their attention and focus. Jania has handled it well tactically. She added that men who she never hooked up with or talked to romantically are trying to make her look bad. And among men who approach her, do that because she is baby mama of Youngboy.
A video surfaced from the surveillance system of a hotel in Tallahassee in which the Rapper (Nga Youngboy) actually body-slammed his girlfriend in the hotel hallway.

Jania shot back with a couple of tweets stating that she was clean, and any mentioned of herpes was a publicity stunt.
She was in an on-and-off relationship with Devin Haney who is a professional boxer. But she broke up with him on the suspicion of he is still meeting India Love and she was just his side kick all along. Rumours are that she also dated King Von and YBN Almighty Jay.
