We’ve talked in the past about how petty it is or isn’t to allow social media happenings to put a dent in your relationship. But who are we kidding? It’s 2016, and social media plays a significant role in the way we communicate and operate. Therefore, it’s no surprise that our habits online can affect our companions.
For instance, we received a message in the MN email from a woman wondering whether or not she was overreacting for being bothered by her long-term boyfriend’s failures to share images of her, or even of them together, on his social media. Specifically, his Instagram. “We’ve taken studio family photos together that I’ve posted on Instagram and Facebook. But when I go to his pages, he doesn’t put them up,” she said. “It would be one thing if he didn’t really use his accounts like that, but he posts random sh-t almost daily. It’s disrespectful.”
She went on to say that he might share an image of her if they’ve taken a photo with his friends or with members of his family at special events (a.k.a., group photos), but nothing about them as a couple, no pictures of their child, no birthday shoutouts or anniversary love. She doesn’t get it.
She has asked him why he, in her mind, tries to hide her and their daughter, but he just says that he doesn’t want to put too much of his private life out there. The way he sees it, not only is it no one’s business, but it could be “dangerous.”
I mean, not everyone is a big fan of putting their children out there or their spouses. But there’s something weird about that when you’re willing to expose so much else about yourself. Could he be attempting to paint a single image of himself?
But a lot of people do it. Like famous rappers for instance. Despite having had a television show featuring his wife and kids, T.I. rarely posts any pictures of Tiny. Out of all those images from their baby shower, he only posted one on Instagram, and it was of himself with Tiny and all their children. And that maternity shot Tiny shared last week? He didn’t put it up.
And then there’s Fabolous, who we all know is in a relationship with Emily Bustamante. And we are aware from her time on Love and Hip Hop that it took him forever to claim her publicly. And yet, after two kids, years together and more, he also rarely shares images of himself with her. And when he does, the captions are aimed more at those who question the lopsided nature of their relationship, than they are about her and his love and affection for her.
Maybe Tip and Fab are just trying to hold on to the image they try and convey in their music, which is that they’re available. But considering that we all know good and well they’re not, and that they post multiple times a day on social media, it’s always been a little weird that the leading ladies in their lives aren’t really featured on their accounts.
In everyday life, though, some men just aren’t that open about a lot of personal stuff, and I can understand that. Not every woman is sharing a picture of her significant other consistently either. Some people just don’t believe that type of stuff needs to be put on public display for folks to see and pick apart. And maybe, in the minds of those who keep their personal relationships out of public view, it’s more important that a significant other knows that they’re part of the bigger picture than to hold so much value in being front and center in an Instagram picture. So what I’m trying to say is no, I don’t think this situation is worth questioning your relationship over. Because it’s important for those who matter to know who you love, not the world.
However, it is interesting when only one party in a relationship is open, publicly that is, about the love they have for the other. Of course, that doesn’t mean the other party doesn’t love them too, or is living foul. But it sucks that the person who has held you down, and in this woman’s case, brought your child into the world, can’t get some acknowledgement. And yet, your car, your new shoes, and the errands you run, can…
But as always, that’s just my opinion. Is it petty that he doesn’t post pictures of her on social media? Or is it petty that she’s upset by it?
Over the weekend, Fabolous shared the first real photo of his newborn son, Jonas Jackson, with the world. In the image, Jonas rests comfortably on his daddy’s chest as his big brother, Johan Jackson, wraps his arm around him. Beneath the photo, Fab left a touching message about fatherhood. His message reads:
I come from a generation & environment where Fathers weren’t very present in the lives of children for whatever reason. Some being drugs, prison, relationship issues, lack of finance & just plain immaturity, but the job/role of Daddy is just as important as a Mom. Men need to understand that. I know & believe that bcuz I come from a single parent home. And even tho the mothers & sometimes grandparents do they best to provide & raise children a lot of times something’s missing. And as a child we find something or someone else to be that Father Figure. Could be the streets, hip hop, sports coach, teacher, hustlers, & even vices we pick up that teach, instill, & mold us. Fathers are supposed to be there for that & help lead the way. Are Fathers perfect, NO. But no one is & no responsibility requires you to be perfect. With that said I love being a part of my kids life & see no other way. I don’t like to advertise my personal life much for the sake of trying to keep something for US, but I do hope the glimpse men get to see of me being a father inspires & motivates. To all Father’s & those soon to be, #HappyFathersDay
Em and Fab welcomed little Jonas Tuesday, June 2.
Earlier this month, former reality star Emily B gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, whom she and longtime boyfriend Fabolous named Jonas. The stylist looked like a million bucks throughout her entire pregnancy, and her post-pregnancy snapback was so dramatic that it will leave you second guessing whether or not she was ever pregnant in the first place. However, as we know, appearances are not everything.
Thursday, the mother of three revealed that her pregnancy and delivery presented many health complications that made her wonder if she would survive. The shoe designer wrote:
I really enjoyed being pregnant but what you didn’t know was that I suffered from horrible nausea, and I lost weight during pregnancy. I was in labor for 16 hours and wouldn’t dilate past 9cm. I pushed & pushed and shredded up my cervix.
My son’s heart rate dropped and his head was stuck in the birth canal, so I had to get a emergency c-section– which by then my epidural had worn off so I had to get a local spinal which numbed my esophagus! I felt like I was going to DIE! I couldn’t feel myself breathing or catch my breath- I had a panic attack and had to be sedated.
I lost over 45% of my blood and had to get a blood transfusion. By the Grace of GOD I’m ok and my son is healthy. I’m stating all this to say – I lost 15lbs after spending a week in the hospital. I’ve only been home a week and I’m still not recovered. My incision is very low but is still filled with fluid and hurts badly.. I salute all the moms & moms to be! By far one of the toughest experiences of my life! Just wanted to share that.
I know by looking at my pic post two weeks it looks like it’s unrealistic but the truth is it also came from being severely anemic & dehydrated mixed with a little SnapBack lol . I will continue to work on getting healthy & in shape! Love you guys and happy healing to anyone who just went thru childbirth!
Poor Emily, we’re wishing this beauty a speedy recovery.
A little man is here!
Fabolous and longtime girlfriend Emily B recently welcomed a baby boy. The former “Love & Hip Hop” star went into labor last night and delivered the little bundle of joy this morning. The stylist announced the birth of her baby boy with an Instagram photo message that reads:
And what could be more beautiful, than bringing new life into the world!
The growing family has plenty to celebrate on today. It is also the 25th wedding anniversary of Emily’s parents.
Happy 25th Wedding Anniversary to my Parents!! Thank you for all that you do for our family.. You both truly inspire me. Here’s to another 25 more Love You!
The name of the family’s newest addition has not been revealed yet. He is Fabolous and Emily’s second child together. They are also the proud parents of 7-year-old Johan. Emily is also mother to 17-year-old Taina from a previous relationship. Last month, the family celebrated the new baby with an intimate shower held by relatives and friends.
Over the weekend, Emily B and Fabolous celebrated the upcoming birth of their son with an intimate baby shower in New York City.
Celebrity guests included Emily’s former “Love & Hip Hop” co-star Chrissy Lampkin, actress Adrienne Bailon and Power 105.1’s Angie Martinez.
Emily and Fab are already the proud parents of 7-year-old Johan. Emily is also mother to 17-year-old Taina from a previous relationship.

Emily B Finally Confirms That She And Fabolous Are Expecting Another Child, Shows Off Growing Baby Bump
We told you last month that sources who are close to Emily Bustamante and rapper Fabolous were saying that the couple was expecting another child. When the rumors came out, there was no response from either one of them, though Emily did post this right after the stories broke:
Despite all that, she didn’t refute the rumors. Instead, she waited until New Year’s Day to confirm that they do indeed have another child on the way. The beauty posted a picture of herself in a skintight red dress that showed off her curves–and a growing baby bump:
Looking forward to the New Year…. And my new blessing. Happy New Year!! ❤️ Dress: @valenciaatelier Makeup : @nordia_ffaceit Hair: @laidthathair A photo posted by EmilyB (@emilyb_) on
Bustamante also went on a trip to Miami with their son, Johan, and while running around with him, took another picture of her new addition.
The two have been together since 2001, and after a rocky period (back when she was on “Love and Hip Hop New York”), they seem stronger than ever. Congratulations again to the couple on their growing family!
Congratulations are apparently in order for rapper Fabolous and his longtime girlfriend, Emily Bustamante. According to our sister site Bossip, the former “Love and Hip Hop New York” star and stylist is in her second trimester, carrying the couple’s second child together. The source told Bossip that Emily is already showing, which is why her Instagram page features no full body shots as of late.
Emily and Fabolous’ first son Johan, is 6. Emily also has a 16-year-old daughter, Taina, from a previous relationship.
Congratulations to these two!
I don’t know about you, but I love and miss the ’90s. So when anyone tells me they’re having a ’90s party or event, I pull out my tights, my brightest colors, my chunky sweaters and my baby hair to participate in full effect. Unfortunately, I didn’t get an invite to Fabolous’ 37th birthday party this week (not cool, Fab, not cool…), but the rapper threw himself a ’90s party that included appearances from a lot of his famous friends, and of course, his lady, Emily B. Check out pics from what looked like a poppin’ party below, and on the next few pages:

As we witnessed a few months back for his The Great Gatsby-themed celebration, Fabolous and longtime girlfriend, Emily B, know how to throw a party. So considering that Em’s daughter, Taina, recently turned 16, it’s only natural that the hip hop couple would throw the high schooler the celebration of a lifetime.
This past weekend the teenage beauty enjoyed sweet sixteen party inspired by “Sex and the City” prequel, “The Carrie Diaries.” The bash was hosted by PYNK magazine. And judging by the pictures, everyone had a blast.
Check out the adorable photos on the following pages.
Rapper Fabolous celebrated his 36th birthday with clever Great Gatsby-themed celebration, The Great Fabsby. The Brooklyn rapper showed up to the adorable retro event with his lovely lady, former Love & Hip Hop star Emily B, on his arm. Other celebrity guests included DJ Clue, Meek Millz, Swizz Beatz and Adrienne Bailon. They really look like they had an amazing time. Doesn’t Emily look stunning?
