Why are so many couples splitting up nowadays?
A few days ago the news broke that adorable rap couple Saweetie and Quavo broke up. The ‘My Type,” rapper states that she felt undervalued, underappreciated and cheated. Meanwhile Quavo sings a different tune as he denies cheating accusations. She states she checked out of the relationship a long time ago. The couple started dating in 2018 after he slid into those popping DMs with a snowflake emoji.
Twitter Tells It All
Saweetie states in a tweet, “I’m single. I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character. Presents don’t band aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women.”
In another tweet she adds that, “I emotionally checked out a long time ago and have walked away with a deep sense of peace and freedom. Excited for this new chapter of elevation.”
He later finally breaks his silence in response to her tweets on Twitter. “I know you want to make this into a show so I’ll play my part just this one time. I don’t normally put my business out there, especially my personal life. I feel the need to address this so there are no false narratives.”
“I had love for you and disappointed you did all that. You are not the woman I thought you were. I wish you nothing but the best.”
Gary Owens and Wife Kenya Duke Split
Comedian Gary Owens and wife Kenya Duke call it quits. The couple have been together for over twenty years and tied the knot back in 2003. The couple shares three adult children, two sons and a daughter. Duke filed the documents last Friday at the Los Angeles County Superior Court according to reports from TMZ.
Owens is best known for his stand up comedy shows and appearances in such films as, Ride Along, Think Like A Man parts 1 & 2, Daddy Care, Meet The Blacks and several others. It’s been rumored that the cause of the split is infidelity on Owen’s end.
What is the cause of so many couples calling it quits lately? Is it the effects of the COVID and couples realizing they no longer have the chemistry they once thought they had? Or perhaps the fire has simply gone out. Infidelity or lies can be the catalyst of any relationship that is already suffering in turmoil.
