Few excerpts from the interview
In the interview, when she spoke about all her past high profile relationship, she confessed out of all relationships she had, Allen Iverson was the one who swept her off her feet. She said that his soft spot and his sweet behavior with both of their families touched her.
She also mentioned how he took her to Japan knowing she had never been there. Both of them met in the 90s during the peak of their careers and started dating. They also took the relationship to next level as Da Brat said that she met Allen Iverson’s entire family. Her grandmothers too loved Allen.
She shared that she was very domestic in the relationship as that’s what her grandmothers had taught her. So when she was in a relationship, she did everything in her control to keep her then NBA player boyfriend happy.
“I met his whole family. We flew to Japan. I had never been to Japan. Ooo, I hope I ain’t telling too much. It was crazy. And I would get up in the morning… I’m a grandma’s child. I’m very domesticated. I like cooking. I like cleaning. I like folding. It’s therapeutic.”
However, she admitted then she started to see the red flags in her relationship.
“I was like, ‘This is it!’ But then I think you know, basketball players? H**s,” she said. “He had a baby mama, some kids. He had a lot of stuff going on.”
She said she was in the relationship even when he was cheating on her. But then, one fine day she decided to end it after one particular incident.
She said “The last straw, I think we were sitting outside the hotel, in the hallway. And this half naked b*tch, walks up the hallway talking about she looking for him. I’m sitting there with him. I’m like, ‘B*tch, I know you see me sitting here with this [n-word]. You still gon say you looking for him?’ I must have molly whopped that b*tch down the hallway.”
“I said ‘you know what? I can’t do this with you [Iverson],’ and I kind of like faded out answering the calls and just had to pull back, and then it eventually fizzled out.”, she recalled.
After that incident, she stopped answering his calls and messages. Post ending her relationship with Allen, she got to know that he was also cheating on her with one of her close friends.
