Amber Rose Lets Her Five-Year-Old Son Curse: “It’s A Form Of Expression”
Amber Rose has never been one to stick to traditional ideals, so it should come as no surprise that her childrearing would fall outside of traditional norms as well.
The model and entrepreneur said that she let’s her five-year-old son Sebastian curse, but only to a certain extent.
“I let my son curse in the house because it’s a form of expression,” Rose, 34, told Us Weekly at her SlutWalk event in Los Angeles. Rose told the outlet that she believes it’s ok for her son to curse if he’s injured himself. “Kids like to curse,” Rose said. “I tell him when it’s appropriate and not to say it at school. That’s it.”
Rose said that she wishes Sebastian would stop dropping the n-word, a trait she says he picked up from his father, rapper Wiz Khalifa. “I tell him, ‘I’d rather you say f—k,’” she said.
Rose shares custody of Sebastian with Khalifa, who she married in 2013 and divorced in 2014.
She also plans to be very open with Sebastian about the birds and the bees when the time comes, which might be sooner rather than later. She told the outlet he will know about sex before he stops believing in Santa.
“I’m going to be like Barbra Streisand in the The Fockers, where she’s like, ‘Honey, have you given your wife an orgasm recently?’” the SlutWalk organizer continued. “That’s how my mom was with me.”
But she will of course make sure that whenever he does engage in the act, that he’s safe in doing so. She plans to stock her house with condoms so that they’re easily accessible.
“I’m going to put them in his drawer next to the bed and be like, ‘I don’t want you have sex right now, but if you do, this is how to protect yourself,’” she said.
As far as expanding her family is concerned, Rose says she’s not in a rush because she would need to find solid partnership first.
“I could do it without a guy if I wanted to, but ideally I would like to find a life partner that is like a best friend and just gets me and knows that I’m not easy to deal with,” she said. “Love and companionship is great. But other than that, I don’t feel like I need anybody but my son and my family, my health and my happiness.”
