Fans often refer to Lil Durk and his girlfriend India Cox as relationship goals on social media. The unproblematic couple have been together for years, share two daughters and like to keep their relationship issues private. 

Now, after reports the couple was involved in a shootout with intruders at their home, fans are calling Durk and Cox the new Mr. & Mrs. Smith — a nod to the film starring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as married assassins.

“Durk and India [are] the new Mr. & Mrs. Smith. That’s goals [for real],” tweeted one fan, while another said “I’m weak. Lil Durk and India [are] the new Bonnie and Clyde out [here].”

Yet another said, “People really saying Durk and India are Bonnie and Clyde but don’t actually know how Bonnie and Clyde died.”

As previously reported, Lil Durk and Cox were victims of an attempted home invasion that took place last Sunday. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation told TMZ that the couple were awakened around 5 a.m. by armed intruders who were trying to break into their Braselton, Georgia, home. According to investigators, both Durk and Cox had access to firearms at the time and fired at the intruders, which escalated into a shootout. Neither the two-time Grammy nominee nor his girlfriend were injured.

Police are currently investigating the incident as an alleged home invasion and aggravated assault. Anyone with information pertaining to the incident is encouraged to contact the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
