The TLC star plays the leading lady in her rumoured boyfriend's new music video.

Nick Cannon and TLC star Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas are fuelling speculation they're a couple by playing lovers on screen.

The musicians were first linked last month (Jul16), but their reported relationship had never been caught on camera - until now.

Mariah Carey's ex recruited the singer to be his leading lady in the promo for his single If I Was Your Man, and Chili took to Instagram on Sunday (14Aug16) to share the first shot from the video, featuring her wearing only a white bikini top as a shirtless Nick tenderly places a chain around her neck.

She added the caption: "#ifiwasyourman #nickcannon" along with an emoji of a fiery flame.

Another shot obtained by E! News shows the couple on a plush bed, with Nick rapping to the camera while wearing blue silk pyjamas as Chili lies behind him in matching lingerie.

Both Nick and Thomas have remained coy on the possible relationship, and when he was recently quizzed about the budding romance following a night out with the TLC star and her mum, he refused to confirm the hearsay.

"We got the opportunity to spend time together but I wouldn't... Ask her what the situation is," he told Entertainment Tonight, before adding, "I would be so lucky to be able to claim to be dating somebody like Chilli."

Nick added that she was "someone I do care dearly for", and said he gets "excited when I get to see her".

Cannon still hasn't officially divorced Mariah, the mother of his five-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan. Chilli, who has a son with producer Dallas Austin, previously dated R&B hunk Usher in the early 2000s.
