Big Sean Denies 'IDFWU' Is About Late Ex Naya Rivera: 'It Wasn't a Diss to Her'

Big Sean was asked about his infamous song “IDFWU,” which many fans believed to be about his 2014 breakup with the late Naya Rivera, who tragically passed away at the young age of 33 in July.

“If I may ask, do you regret making “IDFWU,” a song that many interpreted as being about your ex, the late Naya Rivera?,” Vulture asked Big Sean in a new interview.

“That’s a tough question to answer because I’m still processing a lot of that … I don’t feel comfortable talking about it because I want to respect her. She’s made such an impact on people, and she’s done so many great things in her life and her career that it was hurtful to even have that [song] be associated with her,” Big Sean said. “It wasn’t a diss to her. I truly made the song and played it for her. She knew about it, and she liked it. We had a breakup that was very public, and we were young and we forgave each other and moved on from that. If I would have known something this tragic would have happened, I would have never made the song.”

Naya actually went on to perform the song live once.

Big Sean payed tribute to Naya after she passed away and you can read what he said right here.
