On Monday night, Big Sean was a trending topic on Twitter amid rumors the rapper and his girlfriend Jhené Aiko had broken up after Sean was allegedly spotted canoodling with another woman — but the two quickly took to their own Twitter accounts to deny the rumors.

The rumors started when a website called The Jasmine Brand published an anonymous report alleging that Sean was spotted getting physical with former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger at an Oscars afterparty. According to the source, no cameras were allowed at the party, but word had still somehow gotten to Aiko, who was reportedly "livid." Presented as proof was the fact that Aiko had apparently stopped following Sean on Instagram.

The alleged infidelity was made all the more tragic since Aiko got Big Sean's face tattooed onto her arm last year.
