Who is Johanna Leia, Current Boyfriend?
According to June 2022 data, Leia was allegedly dated NBA player for the Memphis Grizzlies, Ja Morantnow 23 years old.
The rumor started when people noticed that Morant liked all the photos of Leia on social media and the model followed him as well.
Johanna often attended Ja Morant’s basketball games. When their relationship was just getting started, some even reported that the six-foot-tall point guard flew her to Denver to watch one of his games in March 2022, Memphis Grizzlies vs the Nuggets.
Although this rumor started in early 2022, neither Leia nor Morant have confirmed whether they are or were actually in a relationship. Only time will tell if this potential romance will develop into something more, but for now it remains a mystery. While both of them have not confirmed anything, it is still a topic of discussion among their fan base. On the other hand, it could also be a possibility that this rumor mill is already under the bridge and that Leia and Morant have already broken up.
Meanwhile, Morant is also the father of a daughter he had in August 2019 with his ex-girlfriend KK.

A year before Morant, there were extensive claims that Johanna was dating Grammy-winning singer Drake. The magazines rushed to this point when they learned that Drake had booked the entire Dodger Stadium for an intimate date with Johanna in October 2021.

However, they broke up about five months before the start of Johanna and Morant’s story.
Some time later, however Radar Online, in the open, reported that Johanna was still the no. a fan of the One Dance singer and maybe still missed him.
The media speculated this after Leia posted a photo of her then 17-year-old son, Amari Bailey, wearing head-to-toe OVO clothing. It was OVO, a record label that Drake founded in 2012. Later, the Toronto-born celebrity also franchised a clothing line.
When posting the image of her son wearing an OVO dress, Johanna also ditched an owl emoji (OVO’s symbol), leading many to suspect that the mother-of-two still wasn’t quite over Drake.
