Erica Mena and rapper/actor Shad ‘Bow Wow’ Moss split nearly two months ago, but now their personal business is making its way to social media.
A few days ago, Erica jokingly entertained the idea of speed dating on snapchat when she told the camera, “Who wants to speed date when motherf*ckers ain’t worth sh*t?”
That struck a nerve with Bow Wow, because he then started posting photos of him and Joie Chavis — the mother of his child.
In an interview with Global Grind, Erica says that this is just an example of Bow Wow’s pettiness and that it gets worse.

“I could have gone public about our breakup a month ago,” she said. “He does this to make headlines. Just leave me alone, I moved on; why are you still in your feelings? He’s literally posting about Joie to get on my nerves and it’s not working. He’s posting it to fuck with her head and to try to get a reaction out of me. Listen, I walked away silently. He’s an abuser.”
Erica continues, explaining why she kept quiet about their breakup:
“I never wanted [his] business out there. I feel like people have seen me on reality TV having to fight, but at this point in my life, I deserve peace. I’m in a different place now. When it comes to Shad, this is the man I at one point really considered marrying. He is the one I decided to say yes to, but once the mask came off, I realized I had made a bad choice.”
There was once hope for a friendship between the two before, but not any longer.
“It’s sad, because we had a real friendship and we could have had a good life after the fact that our relationship was over. But at the end of the day, we’ve been separated for some time and I’m ready to move on,” she said.
Erica doesn’t really want to speak badly about Shad, because “he helped me realize that there could be a good life and when it was good, it was great. He has a lot of demons he needs to deal with. He needs to talk to someone.”
“I’m not on reality TV anymore and this current situation just shows his immature side. People don’t need to know about this, we are not on reality TV,” she concluded.
Abuse is a serious allegation. We hope this doesn’t get super messy.
