Fans watched the stars split and rekindle over infidelity issues. Back in 2017, Tammy told Essence that healing their disconnect didn’t come without road bumps.
When Tammy left Waka over his unfaithfulness, she never thought she would love him the same.
“I was not playing [when] I left,” the mother of one revealed.
“In order for him to show me [he was serious], he had to be consistent and it was like there were months when he was in the house where he was sleeping on the couch [and] I was evil. I was like, ‘you can get out.’ He was just like, ‘no, I’m going to show you. I’m going to show you.’ When we separated, right before I left him, I said ‘I promise to God, I’ll never love you the same.’ So when we got back together I had that in my head. I was like, ‘I can lie to myself but I can’t lie to God.’ Afterwards I told him I meant what I said when I told you I would never love you the same.” And he was like, ‘I know. Because you’re going to love me more. And I promise you that.’”
And the Atlanta lyricist was right. Tammy admits she feels even stronger in her relationship now then she did before the split.
“Being able to trust them because once you’ve faced infidelity, it’s hard. Having a positive mindset really helped me because if you think nothing but positive thoughts then that’s what’s going to happen. But he changed completely.”
But now the R&B crooner is opening up about her own mistakes in their eight year relationship.
“I’ve cheated on him in the past [as well.] People only see one side to a story,” the 32-year-old told Hollywood Unlocked.
Rivera delved deeper revealing she never slept with someone, but she did imply she engaged in some emotional cheating.
The pair will celebrate their five-year-anniversary in January with a destination wedding surrounded by friends and family. The couple eloped in 2014 one month after Waka’s brother committed suicide.
