Hope Emily Knows: Fab Says He Doesn’t See Marriage In His Future
Without Emily B.’s presence on “Love & Hip-Hop” it’s been hard to keep up with her relationship with Fabolous — although she has dropped his name a time or two on Chrissy and Jim Jones’ new VH1 reality show spin-off. Many still assume the pair is still together (or something like that), or at the very least Emily is still wishing on a star to finally be claimed, but today on “The Combat Jack Show” we got a bit of an update on the two, and interestingly it came from Fab.
Though the radio interview was focused on the rapper’s upcoming music projects, the hosts definitely took the opportunity to ask Fab about the status of his relationship with Emily and whether he has any plans to put a ring on it. As expected, his answers sound pretty typical of a 34-year-old who’s not ready to settle down. Here are a couple snippets.
Status of his relationship with Emily
We great. I think me and Emily situation through the show got tainted through the public view cause it was really a one sided story. It’s entertainment, at the end of the day. I did tell her, if you want to do that show, you have to be mindful of what’s going on. A lot of girls go into those shows not knowing exactly what they are getting into. Some of the scenarios are sprung on them, so it’s like ‘Oh, wow.’ They have to react, and that’s why [the producers] do it, because it gets them a real honest reaction because they don’t know what’s about to happen. You still have to be mindful that you’re on TV and you’re saying things. They cut and edit what you say well, so you might say a whole paragraph, but if you say one little thing that’s juicy enough, ‘Yeah lets get that part.’
Me and Emily are good, we are in a great place, we are raising a little boy together.
Whether marriage is in the future
I don’t think marriage is in the future for me right now man, I really don’t. The thing about marriage is that I believe in it and don’t believe in it. I think people put that ring and that paper and it messes up a good thing sometimes. Now it’s a different emphasis on your relationship. Now you can say, ‘If I’m married, it’s on paper and I walk away, this is that and this is this’. So I like to just build on relationships and make sure that you’re in a happy relationship and if it leads to that.
I know a lot of people look at certain relationships, celebrity relationships, and say, ‘Aw look at Jay and Bey’ and I think even that relationship, it took time. Jay is 40 years old, and he waited until he felt it was right. Even when they first got together, it wasn’t a public thing. They were denying they were a couple when everybody knew they were a couple at first. […] They just made sure their base was strong before they made it public and I think that’s the kind of thing you have to do in a relationship.
Do you think Fabolous and Emily are really great?
