parent separation

Fans were shocked when the perfect couple of 18 years announced their split in March.

Kenya claims that she filed for divorce because Gary cheated on her. She said something that appeared to be directed at the woman she believes to be Gary’s mistress. She admitted in the article that even though she was aware that Gary’s mistress was married and had kids, as well as that the mistress herself is a parent, she didn’t give a damn and kept dating Gary.

She also declared that the mistress would not receive any money, calling her a gold-digger who only cares about her ex- and husband’s money.

According to Kenya, Gary had also traveled to the Bahamas and Florida while on vacation with his mistress. Kenya has asked for $44,000 a month, since it is the sum Gary previously gave her, according to a court document. She claims she was distraught by Gary’s behavior and gave up her work to assist him just to be betrayed in return.

Gary’s response to Kenya’s charges

After Kenya made a number of accusations against him, Gary remained mute for some time. He finally spoke out when he appeared on The Breakfast Club and shared his side of the story. He claimed that he was the one who started the divorce process and left first. He added that his dissatisfaction, not adultery, was the reason for the divorce. In addition, he asserted that over their 23 years of marriage, he frequently left but always returned for his kids.

He also denied Kenya’s assertion that he was a negligent father. He said that he never made his kids use the bus; rather, he drove them to school, picked them up, and never forgot a birthday. He also claimed that he was always there for them and that he loved being a parent. Additionally, he said that since divorcing his wife and starting the divorce process, he hasn’t spoken to his kids.
