‘It’s Very Confusing:’ Meelah Williams Talks ‘Complicated’ Relationship With Musiq
Meelah Williams admits that while she’s willing to share some parts of her life with “R&B Divas: Atlanta” viewers, there are some things that are off-limits to TV One cameras—including her relationship with Musiq Soulchild. Part of this is due to the complexity of their relationship, Meelah says.
“We co-parent, but we’re together, we’re always together. It’s complicated,” the singer-turned-reality-star told The Jasmine Brand. “You’ll see him on the show—not like that. I believe I’ll tell you a bit more about our story. I didn’t want to bring him on because its hella confusing because we’re not married, but we do live together. It’s very confusing.”
In addition to the “confusing” nature of their relationship, Meelah says Musiq isn’t exactly a fan of reality TV, but adds that he agreed to appear on the show to share the story of their autistic son.
“He’s definitely anti reality, but he’s my number one supporter and he gets that I want to get back out there,” Meelah explained. “He was like, ‘I’m going to support you no matter what, I’m going to rock with you, you know how I feel about reality TV but I think it’s a great platform.’ He thinks it’s a great platform for me as a recording artist. He thought it was cool and the fact that I opened up about our son, of course I made sure he was cool with it and he felt like it would be a cool thing to share our story.”
“He didn’t want to come on, but he only came on because he supports me and because I was talking about our son, he’s on to support me talking about the autism,” she went on the explain. “And the studio, we did the studio scene. He’s showing that no matter what I got you as far as music and stuff like that.”
Meelah also discussed her departure from 702.
“Our break up wasn’t public, we went the political route and swept it under the rug,” she explained. “It seems like we demised [sp],but after the second album we were going through internal changes. We were tired, mentally; emotionally a lot of things took a toll. We were young, we started beefing about business issues like management and we couldn’t agree to disagree. I was the lead singer and that was an issue.”
“After the second album, I chose to take a break because it got real ignorant real quick and I didn’t feel like dealing with all that,” she continued.
