Brittany Renner has shared her side of the story regarding ex beau PJ Washington in an interview with DJ Akademiks, sparking new interest in their age gap.

Break-ups are rough on celebrities since all eyes are constantly spying. It doesn’t help that, thanks to social media, it’s so easy to tweet about the drama in the heat of the moment, with the world deciphering every possible meaning.

Brittany Renner and NBA player PJ Washington’s public break-up saga continues as she took to DJ Akademik’s podcast to share her side of the story.

Renner spills deets about her baby daddy

The model told Akademiks:

“If you guys want to call me naïve for thinking a 23-year-old basketball player was going to be faithful to me, guess what? I’m naïve.

“That’s where I thought it was going to end. I thought I could hang my jersey up; I wanted to deactivate my Instagram because that’s just how devoted I am as a woman.

“You’re not going to call my son a paycheque.”

What happened between the ex-couple?

The celeb couple publicised their love on Instagram on 21 March when the model shared a photo of her growing baby bump. However, their relationship crumbled soon after when Washington tweeted: “You was faking it all along.”

Since then, swirling rumours claim she “trapped” him to be her baby daddy for financial gain but Renner dismissed that and said she was convinced Washington was ‘the one’.

Regardless, the pair welcomed their son on 5 May 2021.

Brittany Renner and PJ Washington’s age gap explored

This brings us to the public infatuation with the couple’s age difference but Renner, during her Akademiks interview, complained no-one batted an eyelid at Beyonce and Jay Z’s age gap.

The influencer and author was born 26 February 1992, making her 29.

Washington is 23 years old. He was born 23 August 1998, so there is a six-year age gap between them.

They were first linked in February 2019 when Brittany uploaded a snap from a Kentucky game, which Washington responded to with two emojis.

A year later it was speculated they had been quarantining together after fans spotted a similar couch in their individual photos.

Renner shared she first met Washington while he was still attending the University of Kentucky, and she was 26.

Her social media continues to be bombarded with comments by fans criticising her. Hopefully, this will end after people listen to the interview and give her a break.
