The Famously Single alum dated rapper Chinx from 2014 to 2015. The musician, who was a member of French Montana’s group The Coke Boys, died in a shooting in New York City in May 2015. Malika, who was broken up with Chinx at the time, learned of his death while filming Dash Dolls in 2015. The episode saw Malika in bed as Khloé and Khadijah comforted her.
Chinx was married to wife Janelli Pickens at the time of his romance with Malika. On an episode of Kocktails With Khloé in 2016, Malika claimed that the rapper and Pickens were separated when she first started dating him.
“I was living with one of my exes, who was married,” she said. “I was in this situation and I was, like, a homewrecker. He wasn’t with that woman when I met him, but it still matters to people that you’re in the middle of someone’s relationship. Some people say don’t talk or deal or touch someone that is still married until they are done. It’s not always that cut and dry. I’ve had bad experiences. It’s a complex situation.”Back to top
