Is This Petty? After Four Years And A Baby, He Still Won’t Post Pictures Of Me On His Social Media

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?

Meet Jonas Jackson, Fabolous And Emily B’s Newborn Son

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.

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:  Emily

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:  


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!

Fabolous And Emily B Are Expecting


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:

With so many people going under the knife for plastic surgery to fix a flaw or starving themselves to death to conform with Hollywood’s super skinny standard, it’s refreshing that these celebs embrace their flaws.



Uzo Aduba

We don’t consider a gap a flaw but at one time “Orange is the New Black” actress Uzo Aduba did. Thankfully, her mother set her straight about her look and the fact that it’s connected to her Nigeria roots and she never thought twice about it again.

Fabolous’ black Cadillac truck collided with an 18-wheel tracto trailer on a New York highway. Thankfully, he walked away from the frightening wreck nearly unscathed. Shortly following the accident, the Brooklyn rapper took to social media to share his experience with fans.

“I just survived a car accident on the Van Wyck in Queens, NY,” he wrote. “I wanna thank God for not only letting me walk away with a few bumps & bruises, but also for letting my driver Ruben & the two truck drivers involved walk away alive also.”

Fab went on to reveal that the accident was actually the first he’d ever experienced.

“This was my 1st time being in a car accident,” he added before expressing that the experienced has altered how he looks at things.

“It’s a very shocking experience & may change my outlook on how fast things can happen [when] you’re put into a life-threatening situations. Live, Love, & Celebrate Life. #Blessed”

We all have that one family member who will pop off at the drop of a dime and celebrities are no different. While these famous folks may know how to keep their composure, their wild siblings have no problem throwing down in a heartbeat.

Celebs With Wild Siblings



All anyone has been talking about the past few days is surveillance cameras catching Solange Knowles attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z while his wife and her sister Beyonce stood by and watched in an elevator following a Met Gala after party. While there’s no sound to support the video, it’s clear that Solange was none too happy with the rap mogul and let her feelings be known through slaps and kicks. Neither Jay Z, Solange nor Beyonce have released a statement about the incident.
