Kimbella and Juelz Call It Quits!
Kimbella Vanderhee has confirmed that she and Juelz Santana are over.
On Wednesday (Dec. 29), Kimbella took to Instagram to share the news. In a post featuring a picture of her on a beach wearing a purple and orange bikini, Vanderhee shows off her body with a simple caption: “next chapter…S I N G L E.”
Doubling down on the news that she and Santana have entered splitsville, the entertainer took to her Instagram story, hinting at a possible motive for the end of their marriage. Vanderhee details scenarios where Dipset’s sharpshooter may have fallen short.
“Arguing 24/7 because his feelings were all that mattered. Begging him to change so we could make it work. Feeling numb because he made you feel like the problem. Watching him mess up again when he promised he’d change,” she typed alongside clips from various movies.
She continued: “Feeling alone after he lied the whole relationship. Knowing it’s time to give up even though you love him. Figuring out how you’re going to fix yourself after he dragged you down.”
Kimbella also updated her Instagram bio to include, “Single Mom.”
While he hasn’t commented on the split, Juelz appears to be focused on music. Earlier this week, he announced he’s dropping a new project with DJ Drama, We In Motion.
