“I’m The Wife…I’m Above You”: LHHNY’s Amina Buddafly On Her Messy Marriage To Peter Gunz
If you’ve been watching this very messy season of Love and Hip Hop NY, I’m sure you know about the sordid love triangle going on with Peter Gunz, Tara Wallace (whom he has kids with) and singer Amina Buddafly. For quick background, longtime girlfriend Tara Wallace actually encouraged Peter to work with Amina because she thought she was talented, but what homegirl didn’t know was that the two were having an affair that turned into a marriage (one people speculate was to get the German-born singer legal status to stay in the country). When she found out from Peter, Tara confronted Amina about their affair and Amina would go on to show her a driver’s license that used Peter’s last name as her own, confirming they were married. All hell broke loose and Amina got slapped up, and Peter’s belongings were later cut up. Speaking on all the backlash and that slap-happy encounter, Amina talked to Power 107.5 radio about her marriage and more to clear things up. And according to her interview, while she’s “the wife,” it took forever for her to get an actual ring so I don’t know who she thinks she’s fooling:
About The Day She And Peter Decided To Marry:
“We woke up, and we wasn’t drunk anymore. It was early in the morning, and we were both clear in our heads. It was a spontaneous thing. We had been talking about it for a few weeks, for a little while.
If we had thought it through, we probably wouldn’t be married right now.”
Why She Didn’t Bother To Check And Make Sure He Wasn’t Messing With Other Women:
“As we moved on, months passed. I was wondering and I asked him, but it was always about him and I.
I really didn’t bother. Maybe I should have.”
Her Confrontation With Tara And Revealing That She’s “The Wife” To Her:
“I just need to make it clear. I’m the wife. It needs to be respected. Everyone’s talking bad about me, calling me all these names. I just had to make it clear, I am above you.”
Of course, in her sit down with Hot 97, Tara said that Amina is either lying about not knowing she and Peter were an item and had been for 13 years, or just didn’t care enough to find out:
“I think that’s almost an out and about lie. Where Amina works, we frequent that place. Not only do we visit this place, there are people she’s singing right next to that know our entire story. She turned a blind eye because she wanted to.”
Either way, both of these women are losing sleep and time over a man who really isn’t worth it. And as far as Amina saying she’s above Tara, she clearly isn’t since Peter was living with Tara and hiding their marriage from the world. Do better, girl.
What do you think of Amina’s comments?
