The rapper was photographed out eating with a young lady who wasn’t Emily last week in New Jersey, and sources close to the couple told the publication that they’ve called it quits and he’s been dating new people. You can see a photo of Fab and the unknown woman here.
While it’s unclear what the reason was for the pair reportedly ending their relationship, the last year of it has been filled with a lot of drama.
Last March, it came out that Fabolous punched her in the face, damaging her teeth and also threatening her. Video also came out soon after of Fabolous charging at a scared Emily with an object in his hand while arguing with her father. Though he was charged with counts of domestic violence with significant bodily injury, as well as threatening to kill and possession of a weapon, he was able to strike a plea deal and avoid jail time.
Fabolous and Emily reportedly started dating in 2002, and they share two children together, sons Johan and Jonas. She has a daughter, Taina, from a previous relationship.
This isn’t the first time the pair have called it quits. When she appeared on Love and Hip Hop, the original installment in New York, by the second season, they were no longer together. Though she would eventually go back to the rapper, she was confident at the time that moving on was the best decision for her.
“Love doesn’t go away. I tried to fight my feelings for a long time. Sometimes you have to love you more and that’s what I did,” she said. “Everything has changed and everything has been for the better since then.”
They reportedly split again in 2016 after she deleted all the photos of him from her page, but they eventually reconciled.
Despite their many years together, Future had said in the past that he didn’t see himself settling down with her — or anyone really.
“I don’t think that marriage is in the future for me, I really don’t,” he said back in 2012 on The Combat Jack Show. “The thing about marriage is that I believe in it, but don’t believe in it. I think sometimes people put that ring and that paper and it messes up a good thing. Because then there’s a different emphasis on your relationship. Because now you could say, ”m married and I have this paper — and if I walk away then this is that and that is this. I like to just build on relationships, and make sure you’re happy in a relationship.”
