After only 11 months of marriage and the public only officially being in the loop this May, it was revealed earlier this week that soul songstress Jhene Aiko filed for divorce from music producer Dot Da Genius.
Aiko cited irreconcilable differences as the cause for the split and is asking that the judge deny Dot’s spousal support, according to court documents.
In months prior, rumors of their union being on the rocks surfaced when it seemed as if Aiko and Big Sean’s collaborative album TM88 was more than a musical bond. When the news of the divorce hit the web, social media had a field day, discussing the hot topic at hand. Earlier today, the “Déjà Vu” singer spoke out her divorce, putting all inquiring minds in their place for good.
“How is it my fault that your cheating was publicly viewed by the world?” a Twitter account asked. “Once again, with the internet as your source… your point is invalid and inaccurate and your ignorance grows stronger,” Aiko replied.
“I only cheated myself. So glad to be free from all the drugs, depression and confrontation,” the singer also said to one of her followers passing judgment on her decisions that have played out in the media as of late.
“He jumped the ship a long time ago. He wants to be the victim and I’ll let his bitch ass assume the role,” she tweeted to another individual.
For Jhene who usually keeps her private life private and shares through her music, this mini rant or whatever you’d like to call it was definitely unexpected. Her tweets also caught the attention of Dot’s friend and collaborator Kid Cudi, who stood up for him.
A Twitter troll apparently dug up an old tweet from Cudi telling Aiko, “If you hurt him, I’ll kill you,” in reference to Dot. Cudi then retweeted the post, taking a shot at Aiko and possibly one at Big Sean: “The funny thing is, we ain’t sweating these bum bitches and these corn ball ass ni***s. We too busy makin better music.”
One word for all of this y’all: Drama.
