Kevin Abstract, whose real name is Clifford Ian Simpson, has been on the rise through his songs and albums and as the founding member of the band Brockhampton. With the rapper, the hip-hop boy band has released several hit albums, including Saturation and Saturation II.
As of now, Brockhampton is working on its final album, which Abstract announced via Instagram on the occasion of the band’s fifth anniversary on Thursday, August 25, 2022.
Coming over to Abstract’s personal life, it has been more than a year since the singer revealed he was in a blissful relationship with his boyfriend, who loves him as much as his partner does.
Is Nick Holiday Kevin Abstract’s boyfriend?
On August 2, 2021, Abstract took to his Twitter handle to announce he was officially off the dating market. In his tweet, he wrote, “I love my boyfriend. I’ve never had a man ever ever ever love me the way this man loves me.”
This tweet set the platform on fire, with thousands being happy for the rapper and many more wondering who his boyfriend is. One fan expressed their happiness by writing, “THIS IS SO CUTE U [expletive] LOVEBIRDS OMG.”
“It’s what you deserve, and it’s clear that this is new in its own way. happy for you,” one tweeted, with another writing, “aww I’m glad you found someone, Kevin :).”
Gossips on who could be his possible boyfriend started to spread on the internet. One of the common guesses that many people agreed upon was that Nick Holiday, a professional photographer, was Abstract’s boyfriend.
And that guess was proven right, not at that time but several months later. On the occasion of Abstract’s 26th birthday, July 16, 2022, Holiday took to his Instagram handle to send a sweet birthday wish to the rapper and confirm his relationship with him.
He shared a series of pictures taken alongside Abstract and made their togetherness Instagram official through the first line of his caption. He wrote, “happy birthday to my boyfriend my best friend my biggest inspiration list can go on.”

“No one else makes me feel as happy as you do and I’m lucky to spend every day with you (literally everyday lol). extremely happy to share life with you.”
“Your the most talented artist and anyone that has met you would agree you have the most amount of care humanly possible. Love you bubby happy birthday thank you for being you. ‘that’s awesome,’” he concluded his caption.
Since sending that sweet birthday wish, Holiday has featured his partner one more time on his Instagram feed. And while Abstract has deleted all his Instagram posts, except for three, he reshared Holiday’s most recent Instagram post on his stories.
Going by all that, one thing is clear; Abstract and Holiday are still together, and they are keeping their romantic relationship as low-key as they can. Furthermore, fans have seen the couple for years, but it’s unknown how long they have been dating.
Fans react to Kevin Abstract’s Twitter announcement
As mentioned earlier, Abstract’s fans went on a spree of guessing when the singer first announced he was dating someone.
“Who is his boyfriend??? Nick??” wrote one eager Twitteratti. Likewise, when another asked the same question in a since-deleted tweet, one Twitter user replied by simply dropping Holiday’s name.
On the other hand, one fan didn’t know that Abstract was gay as they wrote, “wait, you’re gay?” [Abstract came out of the closet in 2016 and often addressed his sexuality in his songs to help those fans who need a voice.]
The speculations of Abstract dating Holiday reached Reddit as well, with one Redditor dedicating an entire thread to the topic. “Are Kevin and Nick dating?” was the thread’s title.

In the same discussion thread, a Redditor asked if Holiday has even come out as gay, to which another replied, “pretty sure nick isn’t gay.” But one user had a lot to say, as he wrote a lengthy comment that read;
“They’re all over each other’s Instagram accounts – I’m pretty sure those two are dating + Kevin said he had a bf and who else would it be cause Nick is like the only person he spends time with nowadays, lol And how else would you explain the 9983737 Nick posts on @/boyfriendstudios.”
While many Redditors discussed the possibility of Abstract dating Holiday, one user, who was out of the loop, assumed the rapper was still with his former boyfriend, Jaden Walker.
“They broke up like a year ago,” one user immediately corrected. “OMG NOOOO dude. They broke up before Ginger even came out. Must’ve fallen out hard cuz Jaden hates when ppl bring up BH [Brockhampton] on his TikTok,” another added.
