“My relationship was based off of love. And there still is nothing but love there. This is not some person I picked up off the street. This is somebody I grew up with. Like I don’t even know how I’m gonna function without that person in my life. I’ve never lived my life as a famous person without him.”
“I tell my girlfriends, my best friends, but sometimes I still wanna tell him stuff and get his opinion.”
She broke down in tears as she spoke. “I don’t think people realize it’s not just a relationship or breakup. That was a humongous part of my life,” she told Angie. “It is something that I am dealing with publicly and it’s not easy. I’m also not gonna joke about it or try to disrespect him and try to act like he didn’t mean the world to me and still doesn’t mean the world to me. I’m just figuring it out.”
She admitted that her career and the music industry drove them apart. “If I wasn’t a rapper, we would have children, be married, and be living happily every after. And that’s what we’re both sad about because we know that this shit is what did it.”
