Big Sean Says He Never Would've Made 'IDFWU' If He Knew Ex Naya Rivera Would Die So Tragically https://t.co/2bUiQiBOYp— People (@people) September 2, 2020
In a new interview with New York Magazine, Big Sean, 32, said he would have “never made” the track “I Don’t Fuck With You” had he known ex-fiancée Naya Rivera’s life would come to such a tragic and sudden end.
“That’s a tough question to answer because I’m still processing a lot of that,” Sean said when asked if he regrets writing and recording the song, which also features E-40. “I don’t feel comfortable talking about it because I want to respect her.”
“She’s made such an impact on people, and she’s done so many great things in her life and her career that it was hurtful to even have that [song] be associated with her,” Sean continued, explaining that the song “wasn’t a diss to her” and that he had played it for Rivera.
“She knew about it, and she liked it,” he said. “We had a breakup that was very public, and we were young and we forgave each other and moved on from that. If I would have known something this tragic would have happened, I would have never made the song.”
