Tammy Rivera is causing controversy yet again with her comments on her decision to take back her cheating husband, rapper Waka Flocka. In a new interview with Bleu Bombshell, Rivera defended herself and proclaimed it’s “weak” for a woman to give up on her man.
Tammy was asked why she reconciled with Waka after he had admitted cheating on her. She replied, “Because my husband is a good man. He’s a great man, and I think in today’s society everything is so disposable. Times are not the same, women nowadays you know they say oh let me just do this, I can go out and find me another man, nigg*s aint nothing. You know, all of that, and I get it. But then on the other side you have men who aren’t growing up with fathers, not making excuses for men to cheat, but you have men who never seen what a household is supposed to look like – my husband was never in a married household. He didn’t know.
“His mom was a hustler, you know what i’m saying, she was out in the streets she was the mom and the dad. He doesn’t know—he grew up in the industry. He had early stardom with his career, I think Waka was in his early 20s mid 20s when he dropped his first hit. So you have all these groupies, you have all these things but despite all of that, behind closed doors -this man loves me to death and I know he loves my child to death. He does anything for us.”
The “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star then discussed the advice she’d been given and her thoughts on working through your issues.Rivera said, “So, my mom always told me– you can find a man who can financially take care of you, you can find a man who might not be a cheater, might have it all together, might of grew up with a father in their household, but it’s hard to find real love and a person who genuinely loves you and who is willing to change, my husband was willing to change for his family. So why would I give up on my husband. I’m not that type, I think that’s weak of a woman to do that. It’s easier to walk away as opposed to than to speaking up! No we’re going to fight for this we got married. My family is worth fighting for.”
Twitter users appeared to be doing lots of eye-rolling over Rivera’s comments. Some appeared to believe Waka will always cheat, while others suggest Tammy isn’t the person to be giving relationship advice.
Check out some of the comments:
Tammy forgave Waka and that’s cool but to call other women weak for leaving somebody that cheats on them is beyond dumb.
