Rick Ross’ former fiancée Lira Galore said in an interview Wednesday that a photo of her hugging Meek Mill in a club was one of the reasons behind their split. The 22-year-old model spoke to Global Grind, a website that chronicles celebrities.

“I’m not worried about the picture with Meek. It was just a picture that I posted on my Instagram. I was at work, I used to dance and it was just a picture,” Galore said, in the interview.

“I think the initial breakup was a combination of everything from people digging up tweets when I was 17 years old tweeting about different people, to the picture of Meek. I went to his [Ross’] tagged photos one day and it was only that picture of Meek, and it was just that photo. Everybody just kept posting it and I felt like as a man, he just couldn’t handle it when it was just nothing. I feel like during that time apart he realized he was tripping, so we got back together,” she said.

But Galore added that the relationship did not last long after that. “We just decided to go our separate ways. I’m 22 and this was my first time in love and I put it out there. I’m still in love with him, but some things don’t go as you would like them to go,” Galore said, adding: “I’m fresh out of a breakup, so I’m not looking or worried about anybody right now. There were other things going on, so we parted.”

Mill, who is also involved in a feud with “Hotline Bling” rapper Drake, is dating Nicki Minaj and reports suggest that the couple is engaged.

Ross has been friends with Mill and has defended the "All Eyes on You" rapper in his ongoing feud with Drake.
