‘Having a baby even one you both want can be a big change, so I had been doing what I felt was best for my family. Every time I’ve said I’m happy to send a nanny with Onyx to Atlanta this man would say, “I only want to see him if you are there too, I want to see my FAMILY,’ via Us Weekly.
However, she later called him ‘trash’ for missing Christmas with Onyx: ‘Too bad you got an album out but can’t even come to Christmas with your own son,’ she wrote on Christmas Eve 2020 on her Twitter account.
‘Imagine not flying out your family on Christmas but you have the girl you cheated on my entire pregnancy at your album party and magically me and my son can’t come for Christmas any more? TRASH/’
‘I would never decide to do something of my own free will that meant missing a milestone moment with my son and if you do you’re trash,’ she tweeted.
‘Spend as much time as you can especially while he’s still a baby. Period!!! You can’t rewind time.’
