Johns made comments about his female counterparts when he revealed that he exclusively dates black women and is ‘disciplined in the type of women’.

Speaking to GQ Hype, he said: ‘I only date Black, then it’s all about the chemistry, the personality, the goals. Is there any coordination? can i help you? can you help me?

‘But my parents have been together for 35 years. There is nothing this world can do in terms of pressure to be inspired by anything other than my parents.’
