Here in Oakland, A lot of things going on right now, My father that I just met (Not too long ago) is in the hospital, and that’s REALLY DIFFICULT to deal with right now, amongst other things. ALWAYS a GOOD feeling to have support and Love from the people close to you. Oh and Neffe I did receive your PUBLIC apology, and I understand why you went PUBLIC with it. And I thought I should RESPOND PUBLICLY, and our lives have been VERY PUBLICIZED, and I want you to kno, that I do love u back! ALWAYS WILL. And naw we haven’t been close, and that’s been going on for some time now, but I’ve BEEN forgiven you. I’ve forgiven mom and everyone I’ve felt, has failed me in my personal relationships???? only thing you need to do and worry about is getting YOU AND THE BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN you’ve done an AMAZING JOB, raising.

Discussing her relationship with Niko she writes,

Now the reason I’m posting The pepper to my salt @nikokhale is because he’s been such a sweetheart to me, and I kno people have been very judgmental about our relationship but I gotta nurture what nurtures me.
