Is it an unrealistic request for a mother to not want the girlfriend of her child’s father to be seen out in public holding her kid?

Rapper G Herbo‘s ex-girlfriend and the mother of his son, Yosohn, certainly doesn’t think so. After a photo surfaced of G Herbo’s girlfriend of close to two years Taina Williams (the daughter of Emily B) holding the 2-year-old, the child’s mother, influencer Ariana Fletcher, had some thoughts. For one, she asked the photographer to take down the image.

Secondly, while she didn’t address the situation by lashing out at Williams, she did say that she’d prefer if G Herbo’s girlfriend wasn’t seen out in public holding her child.

“I don’t want my son in public with her holding him because she told me out her own mouth that Yosohn does not like her,” she wrote on Twitter after someone asked her about the photo. “So I don’t want my son uncomfortable.”

While Williams hasn’t directly responded and likely won’t (though this message was posted ahead of Fletcher’s tweets), her rapper beau sent out an interesting subliminal message soon after Fletcher’s comments.

Fletcher responded with her own subliminal dig. She put in her Instagram Stories, “How they get a cure for COVID before herpes.” During a previous contentious time between the exes (there have been quite a few), she alleged that he had herpes.

Man oh, man. All this can’t be good for their co-parenting relationship. But considering that everyone involved is in their early 20s, it’s no surprise that this is how they deal with concerns. It also doesn’t make for peaceful interactions when Williams is the woman Fletcher accused her ex of cheating on her with after having Yosohn back in 2018. (She has since moved on with rapper Moneybagg Yo.)

Is Fletcher’s request a petty one? It’s hard to say. When you’re a mother, if you truly are apprehensive about interactions between your child and your ex’s new partner, you have the right to speak up about it. And if Williams said that she felt like the tot isn’t a fan of her, Fletcher may have thought being captured holding him in public came off as inauthentic and an attempt to look like everyone is in a good, familial place.

Where she went wrong though, is speaking about it on social media, of course. Even without any over-the-top shade, the tweet in itself is somewhat shady because it talks about Williams publicly and it makes it seem as though she and the child have beef of some sort. He’s a 2-year-old. Toddlers like who they’re used to and can be chilly with those they’re not used to. Just because someone feels as though a child doesn’t like them doesn’t mean the hope for a relationship is gone and that adults should help that child be distant. If Williams has treated him in such a way that he might be uncomfortable, then I could somewhat understand her issue. But then it would be more sensible to request that she not carry the child both publicly and privately. Not only that, if it’s that much of a problem that it had to be openly expressed, then the request would be that she not get too close, or be present at all when G Herbo is spending time with their son.

Chances are though, it’s not that deep. Fletcher may just be uncomfortable with the picture from the mama bear standpoint. Who likes seeing another woman holding their kid, especially if you say that woman was the cause for your breakup? And because both Williams and her son don’t look like they’re having oh so much fun in that picture, she may not have been a fan of any of it. But it just doesn’t help anything to turn it into a public topic (though we appreciate getting to debate about it!).

Though neither mom nor dad seems set on keeping it cute to co-parent right now (again, we’re talking about twentysomethings with big followings, big money and not so big maturity just yet), for the rest of us, the situation is an example of how not to deal with what you deem to be legitimate upset over something pertaining to your co-parent and their partner. It can blow things up, as opposed to helping all parties come to a peaceful understanding if you make it an even bigger issue by talking to everyone but your co-parent about it. Conversations, even about some of the most odd and seemingly petty requests, can go a lot further if your true desire is to make things copacetic for your kid. But if chaos is what you’re into instead, then hey, subliminal messages, direct messages, carrier pigeon messages — whatever your jam, go right on ahead.

“I just feel bad for Taina because she’ll forever be in the middle until the mother matures,” said @classicninamae. “and Yosohn is a child that is clearly being taught the ways of his mother Chile.”

“She most likely said it like a joke, like how Toddler boys often don’t want any woman except their mom and Grandma holding them,” said user @MeCrystalStar. “If Taina really did anything to make Yosohn not like her then Ari would’ve beat her up. She probably said it while laughing about it.”

Ari too internet for me it’s cool you told them to take it down …but saying what taina told you how is that the internet business?” asked @JadeaaBug. “Like girl just sit down.”

“Ok but does this need to be made public?” asked @nenadabomm about Fletcher taking to Twitter. “She doesn’t bother anybody and her and herb handle things privately so why even tweet this”

Not taking Ari side …. Nah f–k that I am,” said @CallMeJasss, who brought up Fletcher’s past allegations that G Herbo cheated on her with Williams. “Y’all must forgot Herb CHEATED on her with Taina as she was going through postpartum. She has every reason to be ‘bitter.'”

“Ari gone cause issues in her own relationship, tryna regulate somebody else’s,” said @MoreMelanin1. “Talking about he cries for her when she calls Taina phone… ummm duhhh! All kids do that.”

“The whole story doesn’t make any sense,” said @Breonuh_. “She said that Taina said Yosohn does not like her but he always looks calm around her so how does this whole thing makes sense. If you just don’t want pictures of her holding him that’s fine but don’t act like it’s a bigger issue”

“Yall can gtfoh, she’s not wrong, tf!!” said @prettidimpzz. “Babies can sense bs and if my child doesn’t vibe with a mf it’s a dub for that situation Frfr! Shorty been around Yosohn too long for him to still feel that way about Taina.”

“She just needs to not pay any attention to the blogs which can be difficult to do, so I understand her frustration,” said @imsosick1234. “Yosohn being in pics with Taina shouldn’t be a huge deal at this point tho. But she has every right to feel the way she does cause that’s her baby.”

“I’m glad I don’t have those type of traits of being bitter or jealous . Ari didn’t have to make a big deal but hey who am I to say anything,” said @Tiffyyrose_. “You done had two different guys around Yosohn you mad Herbo still w Taina.” 

Ari said she doesn’t want her son being seen in PUBLIC with Taina. Girl, grow tf up,” said @naybabesss. “Like it’s cool if she’s with him in private, but once it makes it to social media… it’s crossing a boundary.”

“Ari my sis but she really do too much when it come to Taina and that’s annoying,” said the user @_Alysiab.

“Ari ain did or said nothing wrong,” said @ilovehispipe. “Herb bogus fa letting Taina hold Yosohn if they’ve all had a conversation & Taina said SHE knows Yosohn don’t like her. Shouldn’t have even been an opportunity for a photo if you ask me!”

this is what everybody’s missing, she NEVER said she couldn’t be around him. what she said was she doesn’t want pics of them on the internet,” said @tiarrrii. “her kid, her rules. women do have a choice. she’s not obligated to share her kid with anyone if she doesn’t want to. how’s that bitter?”

“I’m not gonna lie, as childish as I have felt Ari has been as a mom I totally understand not wanting your son taking photos with another woman unless that’s your husbands wife,” said @AfrikaKnowes. “That’s just ME though. And I feel like if I have full custody and I’m the mom and that’s my boundary.”

Ari only comes after Taina when she’s unhappy in her own relationships & pretends it has something to do w her son,” said @properjokee. “Like nah, misery loves company.”
