Lil Yachty, the renowned rapper, recently shared a captivating story during his appearance on the A Safe Place Podcast alongside streamer Kai Cenat and co-host Mitch. Reflecting on his past, Yachty openly admitted to indulging in a lavish and extravagant adventure with a particular woman, where they embarked on a whimsical journey to the enchanting realm of Disney World. Surprisingly, this extravagant escapade took place even though they were not romantically involved.
Lil Yachty revealed his mixed emotions about the hefty price tag attached to this extravagant date, confessing that he spent a staggering six-figure sum amounting to $100,000. While he acknowledged the allure and magic of Disney World, he couldn't help but express some regret for going overboard in his efforts to create an unforgettable experience for his romantic interest.
“The overall of that trip wasn’t trickin’, [it] wasn’t for her, but it was to go big and I kinda went a little insane,” Lil Yachty said. “That thing specifically is I spent $100,000 to go to Disney World. I regret it because we weren’t dating and it just didn’t go nowhere.”

Nevertheless, Yachty couldn't deny the unforgettable moments and the extraordinary ambiance that they encountered during their time at the magical theme park. Despite the absence of a romantic connection, the experience left an indelible mark on both Yachty and his companion. “But it was fire — it was my experience too, it was crazy — but it was insane,”
While Lil Yachty remains tight-lipped about his current dating status, it is worth noting that he welcomed a daughter in October 2021 with his former model girlfriend Selangie, who is of Dominican and Puerto Rican descent. In an interview with Billboard, Yachty affectionately shared how his daughter's mother embraces her heritage and frequently exposes their child to the music of Selena, as well as a plethora of beloved Disney classics such as "Frozen" and "The Lion King."
Addressing speculations surrounding his romantic life, Lil Yachty dismissed rumors of a romantic involvement with Justine Skye back in January 2022. This was prompted by their joint TikTok videos while they were spending time together in New York City. Playfully debunking the gossip, Yachty and Skye posted a video where they shared a laugh, highlighting the erroneous nature of the media's claims. Skye even captioned the clip, "When blogs be loud & wrong."
On the musical front, Lil Yachty has showcased his versatility by venturing into the realm of psychedelic rock with the release of his album, "Let's Start Here," which made its debut in January. The album soared to an impressive No. 9 on the coveted Billboard 200 chart, marking a successful transition for the artist.
Notably, Yachty's latest single, "Strike (Holster)," released in April, has been steadily gaining momentum, captivating listeners with its slow-burn appeal. The music video, skillfully directed by Cole Bennett, has garnered an astounding 17 million views, further solidifying Lil Yachty's artistic prowess and ability to captivate audiences across various genres.
Lil Yachty's candid revelation about his extravagant Disney World date, despite not being in a relationship with the woman, offers a glimpse into his past experiences. While he acknowledges the excesses of his actions, the memories created during that extraordinary adventure have left an undeniable impact on both himself and his companion.
