Naomi Osaka's Boyfriend Left Fans In Stitches With This Awkward US Open Moment
Fans on social media have gone to town on poor old Cordae.
The 23-year-old rapper from North Carolina is the boyfriend of Naomi Osaka and like any loyal partner Cordae was on hand to celebrate his girlfriend's win at the US Open.
Japanese tennis sensation Osaka successfully clinched her second US Open crown after beating Victoria Azarenka at Flushing Meadows.
The 22-year-old dazzled on court, but it wasn't long before one awkward incident after the match caught some eagle-eyed supporters' attention.

Just moments after clinching her third Grand Slam title, Osaka lined up alongside her coaches for a picture with her US Open trophy - but Cordae wasn't sure if he was allowed to join or not.
Clearly second-guessing his decision to tack onto the end of the group photo, he awkwardly stood on the end of the line before motioning to take a knee.

And even when he was finally welcomed into the shot, the YBN group rapper had fans in stitches when he wasn't quite sure what do with his hands.
In the end, he just ended up weirdly rubbing them together.
Unsurprisingly, people had a field day on social media after witnessing Cordae's awkward moment.

Some fans slammed his hilarious hand gestures while others commented on the fact that he was genuinely contemplating popping a squat during his pose.
But perhaps the best comment came from one viewer, who simply said: "When y'all freshly in love so you ain't sure if you allowed in the family photos yet."
Either way, Cordae's antics didn't take anything away from his girlfriend's historic feat of winning two US Opens - all before the age of 22.
