The Internet Reacts After Naturi Naughton Shoots Her Shot At One Of Her ‘Power’ Co-Stars & He Responds

Are they flirting for the world to see? 

Two of the stars of Starz' hit series POWER, Naturi Naughton and Rotimi, recently got their fans' attention after they got a little flirty with one another on social media.

The interaction was sparked by Naturi, after Rotimi shared a photo of himself working out. 

“New week, new goals, new levels, new disciplines,” Rotimi captioned the photo.

Naughton, who posted a wagging tongue emoji, googling eyes, fire flames and water emojis, caught her co-star's attention, who then responded with smiling devil and winking-eye emojis.

Somebody said #Ghost finna be mad af after seeing this 😂


Of course, it took no time for people on the internet to see the flirtation between the two POWER stars.  

Some argued that the actresses’ TV husband Ghost wouldn’t like it, and others figured the back-and-forth might be teasing the two will have an affair next season.

One follower wrote: “They got something going on [in] season 6.”

Another person added: “Ghost gonna kill you off now, Y’all really [expletive] up.”

Some also wondered why the actress/singer would leave the emojis in the first place since she reportedly has/had a boyfriend named Ben, who is the father of her 1-year-old daughter Zuri. 


This commenter wanted to clarify: “She’s not married, but didn’t she just have a baby? Hell, I got three kids and ain’t married either. Let me get out of other folks business, thinking I know something.”



If Naturi and Rotimi are hooking up, it would just be another plus to her already impressive list of accomplishments recently. Reportedly, the model was signed to WME (William Morris Endeavor) .


Fans remember that Naughton first got into the entertainment industry as a member of the Pop group, 3LW (with Adrienne Bailon & Kiely Williams), before heading off to Broadway to stunt critics as Little Inez in Hairspray.


Naturi took her acting skills to the next level after perfectly playing Lil Kim in the 2009 film Notorious, the biopic about the legendary emcee Notorious B.I.G., who met his untimely demise passed away at 24-years-old in 1997 during the media-fueled “East Coast-West Coast war.


Her acting career progress as she moved on to work on films and TV shows like Fame, Step Sisters, Lottery Ticket, The Playboy Club, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, The Client List, as well as the critically-acclaimed, Mad Men.

Additionally, Naughton received accolades from the NAACP, for her character in POWER.


We don’t know what’s going on between her and Rotimi in real life but we guess time will tell if “Dre” and “Tasha” get involved during Season 6 of POWER like that one viewer stated.
