Tammy Rivera recently opened up about her decision to give her husband, rapper Waka Flocka, a second chance after his infidelity.
While her decision may have been what’s best for her and her family, the model/entrepreneur is facing some backlash for saying she feels it’s ‘weak’ for women to leave unfaithful husbands.
She tells Bleu Bombshell:
Because my husband is a good man. He’s a great man, and I think in today’s society everything is so disposable. Times are not the same, women nowadays you know they say oh let me just do this, I can go out and find me another man, nIggas ain’t nothing. You know, all of that, and I get it. But then on the other side you have men who aren’t growing up with fathers, not making excuses for men to cheat, but you have men who never seen what a household is supposed to look like – my husband was never in a married household. He didn’t know. His mom was a hustler, you know what i’m saying, she was out in the streets she was the mom and the dad. He doesn’t know—he grew up in the industry. He had early stardom with his career, I think Waka was in his early 20s mid 20s when he dropped his first hit.
So you have all these groupies, you have all these things but despite all of that, behind closed doors -this man loves me to death and I know he loves my child to death. He does anything for us.
So, my mom always told me– you can find a man who can financially take care of you, you can find a man who might not be a cheater, might have it all together, might of grew up with a father in their household, but it’s hard to find real love and a person who genuinely loves you and who is willing to change, my husband was willing to change for his family.
So why would I give up on my husband. I’m not that type, I think that’s weak of a woman to do that. It’s easier to walk away as opposed to than to speaking up! No we’re going to fight for this we got married. My family is worth fighting for.
As you can imagine, social media has been rife with opinions on Tammy’s point of view.
why is tammy rivera trying to judge other people for doing what is best for them?

Let's say Waka brings home a disease and Tammy can't get rid of it. Would she still stay because she's not "weak"?

I wonder if Waka would stay if Tammy cheated on him? Hell No!

If Tammy was constantly cheating on Waka and used the excuse 'I didn't grow up seeing marriage' …..would he stay? Plz
