Waka Flocka recently did what a lot of divorced men don’t have the heart to do, he took full accountability for his divorce from Tammy Rivera.
Waka recently appeared on the “Club Shay Shay” podcast with Shannon Sharpe, and after being asked if reality TV played a part in his divorce, Waka said it wasn’t reality TV… it was him.
Ah, it was me!.. I was just young and dumb.
I just… It was me, man.
Whoever she say how she felt, but as a man it’s always gonna be me…
See that’s the thing that’s tough, right?…
I was a brother, a son, a husband, a father, a CEO, a chairman of company, pay attention to my career, protect my freedom, my life, and think of new business ideas, that’s 10 things…
11, I gotta to learn how to protect it…
12, I gotta know what’s going on…
I’m like f**k, it was a lot to handle.
And nobody understood how something was going to fall short, but then it got to a point in my career where it was like, ‘Yo, Waka enough is enough man. You gotta, like, let go.’
And I just got to a point where I was like, bruh I can’t handle that sh*t, it’s over!
I’m tired of living for everybody.
And I got tired of seeing my wife just live with this umbrella over her, you know what I’m saying?…
I’m like, ‘Yo, be free my n****,’ like, I love you to… Like, whatever you go through in life I’m still gonna help… I’m there it’s nothing!… Like, that’s my dog!
You know what I’m saying?… That’s one of my best friends, like.
So it gets to a point where you’re like, ‘Damn yo you chewed too much.’
I ain’t fail at nothing it was just a lot.
I just wanted to help everybody, like.
I just seen a lot of people don’t have the kind of drive I have.
I’m not trying to hold it over you but f**k it I guess God did it for me to do it so you can learn from it, and I learned in that process you pushing people, you could be pushing them to their death.
A lot of people can’t afford to be pushed.
They at the edge in their life. So I had to learn that as well.
A lot of mistakes I made I didn’t want people to walk down certain avenues because I was afraid they wouldn’t make it out how I did.
So I’d lie to them like it’s something else just so they ain’t gotta do that, you know what I’m saying?…
It’s just a lot of sh*t that went on in the middle of it.
Salute to Waka Flocka for being a stand-up guy and taking accountability for his actions.
