2017 … You were a beast . I can truly say that this year has made me stronger . Well I recognized my strength to walk away from what isn’t healthy for me. I faced my biggest fears this year. And from that I am open to my new life and evolving . I truly have seen and been through some stuff that I know tons of women go through. And I speak up to let you know there’s hope. All of those who are single mothers that are hurting that want to give up .. Don’t ! Also don’t stay somewhere that you aren’t valued . And don’t allow anyone to treat you less than what you are. It’s not easy to face my truth in front of this cold world . But I face it with pride because I got through this and will get through it all! Protect yourself !!! Take the steps you need to make sure you are really happy!! Really happy inside. Not just a smile . Not just waking up to another day. But loving the day you are waking up in. I don’t speak to down talk anyone . But I speak to free myself from my past. I’m ready to turn the page . And ready to uplift anyone who needs uplifting along the way! 2018 … I can’t wait to meet you ❤️

During the season 4 premiere of ‘Growing Up Hip-Hop’ during a confession she said; “I just got to a place where I felt like I wasn’t happy, and I tried, and I tried, and I tried and I wanted it to work because the last thing I wanted to do was not be together with the person I had my child with, God had another plan for me… For me, it’s already a lot, then everyone has to look at me like, ‘oh you’re not married, you’re this, you’re Reverend’s daughter.’ So I’m going through all of that and I have to raise a kid in front of the world…single! People are always going to be in my comments, ‘where’s the dad? what’s this?’ It’s non-stop! They’re always worried about my ring and if it’s on or off. [People] think they know me and they don’t. They have no idea.”

It seems like Tennyson and Simmons were entangled in child custody battle as Tennyson’s layer told TMZ, after Tennyson’s death, that the custody case with Angela regarding their 2-year-old is now over and she will get full custody of their son and it was sad that he would grow up without a father.
