‘Tara And I Were In A Real Dark Place:’ Peter Gunz Defends Marrying His Side Chick

So at this point, we’re all pretty aware that marrying the side chick is a common theme in the Love & Hip Hop franchise. Not long after the last season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta concluded, we learned that Stevie J married his side-chick-turned-main-squeeze, Joseline Hernandez. And as we all witnessed during the last two episodes of Love & Hip Hop New York, reality TV newcomer Peter Gunz is following suit. Most people are still scratching their heads and wondering why Peter would leave his apparent happy home with Tara to marry his “mistress.” During a recent interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, Peter tried his best to answer that question.

“It’s still the hardest question in the world to answer. I’m with Amina. Amina and I are married. You know what? Again, I know y’all wanna kill me out there, all the women wanna kill me out there. I’m only giving my best explanation and that’s not an excuse. It’s wrong. It was dead wrong, but Tara and I were in a real dark place. I don’t know what you’ll see on the show, but we were in a dark place and I felt like it was the end of the road for our relationship. Me and Amina were friends at first, the we started dealing with each other,” he said.

He added that he married Amina to get her to wait for him.

“Just to show Amina that, you know, ‘Wait for me. I promise,’ and she’s like ‘You lying, you lying, you still there.’ I jumped out of the window and did something I regret. Tara didn’t deserve that. “

Oh, and in case you were wondering, Peter says that he and Amina were intoxicated when they decided to get hitched.

“It was definitely one of those nights where everybody was drinking. And it was like, ‘I promise you, I love you, let’s do it.”

As for those rumors that Tara is a trained actress and this entire love triangle is being fabricated for TV purposes, Peter reassures fans that all of the messiness that they’re seeing is real.

“Tara is definitely an actor and when I got the call to do ‘Love & Hip Hop’ I said ‘Hey, you came here years ago to do TV. This might not be a bad thing for you to do.’ And in Tara’s mind it was like, ‘Yeah, then I can find out what he’s doing behind my back.'”

    He’s full of bs, really? His explanation makes no sense, he sound like he’s trying to come up with a reason. If they were in such a dark place then he should have left why go and marry some chick you just met and then keep it a secret? The kick is that he says they were drunk when they did it, if she was all that to you and you are so in love with her why did you have to be intoxicated to do, if it really was what he wanted and meant for it to be it would have happened when he was sober, and at least had some money for a ring, even if it was from the pawn shop. If he’s that broke he don’t need to make commitments he can’t fund. But I guess that’s what she’s for.

    He is very silly and I can’t even believe that this is an interview with a grown man… pitiful!

  • okcchick

    I swear all of this is for publicity. He’s trying to be another Stevie J to make the show interesting because it sucks badly. Nobody of importance is on there. Get real peter whoever you are

  • Trisha_B

    He just doesn’t want to admit he married Amina so she can get her papers lol. I really think that’s the real reason behind it, but they aren’t gonna speak on it b/c the feds will come knocking. It doesn’t make a lick of sense for him to marry a chick he just met & not just randomly wake up & marry his kids mother. & the fact he keeping Amina in the side-chick position shows there is more to the story. He’s worse than Stevie J. Stevie didn’t go marry Joseline secretively while still playing house w/ Mimi. Mimi been knew about Joseline.

    • nick

      As seen as she said they were married i thought it was for the same dang reason!! To keep her around so he can play with her and maybe make some money off her as well.

      • Trisha_B

        When she said her family had to move back to Germany but she got to stay, then announced they were married, i already knew what was up.

  • Charisse A Hill

    By the way, He is to DAMN old to be acting like he is in his twenties.

  • Charisse A Hill

    Mistress? He wasn’t married to Tara. They were shitin around playing married, had two kids out of wedlock and ended up in some sort of bullshit relationship. I swear we as black women need to make sure our relationships are ordained by God before we even give a first kiss.

  • newgirl

    I’m sorry but did his Explanation leave anyone else confused?

  • Leigh

    I’m still trying to figure out who is Peter Gunz. What has he done?

    • BabyBlue

      He had that one hit Uptown Baby

      • Leigh

        I can’t recall it. i will have to look it up on Youtube.

        • Tonya

          He rapped with Lord Tariq. The song was big in the 90s, called Deja Vu (Uptown Baby) particularly New York. It was actually my jam. They fell off after that. His son Cory Gunz is signed to Cash Money.

  • Taneesha Culture Clash Thomas

    he’s a clown for so many reasons in so many ways

  • BabyBlue

    MN failed to mention that he was with a woman in New Orleans and he cheated with her with Tara. While Stebbie J was with Eve he cheated on her with Mimi. I absolutely don’t feel sorry for these women they knew the game from the beginning. How you get him is how you lose him.

    • Jen

      Thank you! I never understand why women get mad that a man has cheated on them and that’s exactly how you met him. He’s not going to treat you and different than he treated her.

    • Shebaby

      my thing is Tara is that she went back to him after she found out the last time he cheated on her. That was ur red flag there!! so you get what you deserve!!

    • Jacara Fatin

      Very true. How you met them is how you’ll lose them. SMH.
