Her social media and brand received a huge boost in popularity after she started a relationship with rapper Lil Durk in late 2017.
In 2017, she made a cameo appearance in an episode of the short-lived Fox procedural drama series APB (short for "all-points-bulletin"). Apart from Instagram, she is also active on most other social media platforms including YouTube, TikTok, Facebook and Twitter. She joined her self-titled YouTube channel in March 2018 to vlog about her life when she was pregnant with her and Lil Durk’s first child, Willow. Her oldest video on the channel, FIRST TIME BABY SHOPPING! || VLOG, was uploaded in September that year. In her very next video in November, she recorded her labor and delivery experience. Since then, she has regularly uploaded vlogs, shopping hauls, try-on hauls, unboxing videos, and so on in the channel. She often features her partner Lil Durk and her two daughters in her videos.

She started dating rapper Lil Durk in late 2017. With him, she welcomed her second daughter, Willow Banks, on October 31, 2018. She has created a combined Instagram account with the handle @theroyalegirls for her two daughters and also posts their pictures on her profile. After four years of dating, Durk got on his knees and proposed to India during a concert in their hometown of Chicago in December 2021. However, in September 2022, it was rumored that the two broke up after she posted a cryptic tweet saying, “I'm a free agent”. She even claimed to be single shortly after Durk mentioned he wanted to have another son. Nevertheless, he asserted that she always stood by him even when he was broke. They have again got back together as of September 2023.
