What Happened Here? Derrick Rose’s High-School Sweetheart Mieka Reese Announces Split
As much as I love me some Derrick Rose, I’m actually saddened to hear that the point guard for the Chicago Bulls and his high school sweetheart, Mieka Reese, have split. As HelloBeautiful put it, Instagram definitely is the new place to let the world know about your breakups when you’re famous. According to The YBF, Reese posted on Instagram on Sunday (@pjfamilyfirst) saying that the couple have gone their separate ways, but will continue to co-parent their adorable son PJ, aka, Derrick Jr.
She posted this picture and said the following:
“This picture speaks volumes to me…PJ is the center of my life now and Derrick and I work together to co-parent for him. No Derrick and I are not in a relationship anymore but our friendship has always been there and will continue to grow…Even if our only purpose in life was to create our son, I’m fine with that. My son is the greatest gift I could’ve asked for… Happy Sunday.”
Of course, she didn’t speak on the demise of their relationship, but considering that she’s been by his side before the NBA fame and even before his short but successful college career (take it all the way back to his days at Simeon in Chicago), it does make one wonder. Hopefully this wasn’t caused by infidelity, and maybe these two will get back together soon enough, but as Reese said, the most important thing right now is for them to come together as parents for PJ.
Whatever you do though, Mieka, don’t answer if Shaunie O’Neal and VH1 comes calling…
