Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Waka Flocka and his wife Tammy Rivera just celebrated four years of marriage. Their love has had its rocky moments (as all relationships do) which they’ve been able to bounce back from stronger than ever.
“You gotta be cautious and you have to think when you make moves, because you’re representing another person,” he explains. “So you have to approach things from a perspective of being a married man; on top of being an artist; on top of being a celebrity. You have to stand for damn-near the same things she stands for. So if somebody ask me a question, I damn-near gotta answer it how both of us feel, not just how I feel. How would she look at it? It’s always ‘How would Tammy look at this?’ or ‘What does Tammy think?’ So it’s like that.” Perhaps he was referencing his own comments about Caitlyn Jenner that Tammy then had to answer for during the fifth season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, as you can see here when she was confronted by D. Smith, who was angry at Waka’s public statements about the trans community.
Waka has made no secret of the fact that he’s been unfaithful in his marriage and had to work very hard to regain his wife’s trust again. It gets even more complicated when you have Instagram fans dropping their opinions off at your doorstop every waking moment. Cardi B and Offset surely know what that’s like, as they’ve already endured their fair share of controversy themselves. Waka knows, from personal, that the best thing for the newly engaged couple to do is keep people out of their relationship.
“My advice for them is keep your house strong,” Waka suggests. “Don’t let nobody get inside your household and change your opinions and the way you feel about your spouse or your significant other. I think y’all should always have an understanding and have a ground; y’all should always talk about things, like, ‘Baby, if this happened,’ or ‘What if this happened?’ I think it should always be y’all two agreeing on whatever happens next, before anybody else put words in y’all mouth or ideas in your mind.”
A few weeks back, Cardi B confirmed that despite whatever cheating did or didn’t happen in her relationship, she’s sticking by her man. “I’m going to make a decision in my own times with my heart and mind,” she wrote in a series of now deletes tweets, according to multiple outlets. “I don’t need to be rushed or be told what to do. Its my life! I belong to me not to the world.”
Moral of the story: worry about your own relationship.
