As much as we’d like not to put stock in certain things, social media can speak volumes about the nature of a relationship. So last week, when Cyn Santana deleted all pictures of Joe Budden, her fiancé and father of her child, from her Instagram page, our antennas went up.
We didn’t report about it but several other outlets believed that this erasure meant that the two were no longer together.
But we had yet to hear from either Joe or Cyn, until this weekend.
During a live tapping of his Joe Budden Podcast in Tampa, Florida, Budden addressed the question that needed an answer.
“They were telling me that I had broken up with somebody. Right? Like how can I put on a show tonight like this? So, I want to tell—and this is breaking news— y’all are the first to hear it. We didn’t break up. We did not break up.”
The words were initially met with applause from the audience. But as he continued explaining, they turned into groans.
“Now, words are important. So what does that mean? What that means is, neither one of us said, ’It’s over.’ Now, with that said, we haven’t spoken. [Laughs] We haven’t spoken in a little while. I think her phone’s been dead for a few weeks. Overtime at work. Plenty of reasons I can think of…Can you have a break up without saying it? I’m asking a very serious question. I’m asking for enlightenment from Tampa. Can you break up without actually breaking up? I didn’t take it no way when she moved all her sh*t out of the house.”
Perhaps you should have taken it a way, Joe. There’s no telling right now whether or not this breakup is permanent. But moving out, taking your things and not speaking to one another for weeks, constitutes as some type of break, whether there’s been a formal declaration or not.
Furthermore, I know Cyn can’t be feeling too great about the fact that Joe is making light of this situation. He doesn’t seem entirely pressed about the fact that the woman he said he was going to marry, the woman who birthed his child has just disappeared and isn’t answering his calls or sending any his way.
In fact, he doesn’t even seems to be entirely concerned about getting her back.
Interestingly enough, after Joe’s conversation made its way to the internet, Cyn answered the question in a different way.
We’ll keep you posted because we know this is not the end of this.
