“I’ve known Bow since I was like 17,” she told Hollywood Unlocked during a recent interview. “We just had a lot of back and forth. I love Bow to death. People gotta know that’s my homie. If he calls me and needs me for anything, I’m here. That’s my people.”

Simmons says throughout it all, they’ve supported one another, saying.

We grew together. I saw him have his first kid – I saw everything, so I was just in the mix…He was always there. Even when I was in a relationship when I was younger, after I broke up with the guy I was with, I called him and I remember the day I found out [the] dude was cheating  and he was like, ‘See, I told you.’ He’s just that guy that was always there. Bow has always been there for me and he’s definitely a close homie of mine.

For Simmons, she doesn’t rule out the possibility of the two ever being together again. She says she believes that wherever is meant to be, will be.
