Exclusive: Mario and Audra Simmons’ Couple Status Confirmed!Published by Dior Noir on Tuesday, October 27, 2009 at 12:00 am.
Mario and RichGirl group member, Audra Simmons, migh’ve been breaking up in the video they shot this summer, but off-camera they are in fact a couple! The two have been seen out and about for awhile now, but they’ve denied that they’re together while playing it coy with the “we’re just friends” line. However, a rep confirmed to BET.com that the two are an item.
Our source said they met during Mario’s promo tour, where RichGirl opened for the Grammy-nominated R&B star.
Audra was the lead girl for the “Break Up” video and they started dating shortly before they filmed the video “Thinkin’ About You,” which was about five weeks ago. The two are dating seriously and, according to our source, “It’s hot and heavy now.”
We knew there was a reason why they had so much chemistry in the videos! Cute!
Mario is promoting his current fourth album, D.N.A. and has been co-headlining the first ever BET 106 & Park tour with Trey Songz. The concert, which also includes Sean Garrett and Day 26 wraps November 25th in Las Vegas.
Mario will also perform at the New York’s Power 105.1 Powerhouse ‘09 concert tonight which also features Chris Brown, The Dream and Keri Hilson. Meanwhile, RichGirl opened for the North American leg of Beyonce’s I Am…Sasha Fierce tour and the group has dropped a single “He Ain’t Wit Me Now (Tho).” They’re preparing to release their first album.
