Tammy Rivera has hope that she and rapper Waka Flocka Flame will be able to get through this rough patch in their marriage, but admitted that he has a lot of work to do on himself. The “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star opened up about the recent split revealing that Waka has been doing everything he can to keep their family together.
“We’re good right now. We just, um, we’re not together but we have a great relationship,” Tammy told VH1.com Tuesday. “He just working on him and I’m working on me and you know he’s fighting for his family right now.”
Even though Tammy and Waka decided to go their separate ways, the designer doesn’t see a divorce happening anytime soon. “He’s my husband. I take marriage very serious,” she explained. “He’s gonna have to, you know, work on himself a lot. And I’m working on myself. And if God be willing for us to be together, then that’s what’s gonna happen. But right now, we’re just focusing on, you know, I’m focusing on me. And he, I guess, is finally focusing on trying to keep his family.”
On Monday’s episode 14 of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” fans watched as Tammy broke down over her split from the “No Hands” rapper. Tammy told her friends that they mutually decided to breakup so they could figure things out.
Tammy and Waka announced last month that they were no longer together. Tammy addressed the split on Instagram slamming rumors that Waka left her for another woman. “Y’all listen and please listen clear! I will not speak on this situation again… Me and Waka separation had nothing to do with ANYONE! Waka did not leave me for ANYONE lol. We made a mutual decision that we needed to separate,” she wrote. “Waka is a great man and father to my child, we all make mistakes and learn from them.” She later admitted on the reality show that she knew her husband was unfaithful while he was away on tour.
Waka also commented on his and Tammy’s breakup, telling a fan on Instagram that he regrets all the pain he’s caused. “I pray the most high give me strength to be a better husband and role model,” he wrote.
