Bow Wow says he spoke with Diddy
The Growing Up Hip Hop star has a daughter, Shai, with Chavis. The two split before Shai was born and tried reconciling years later but failed. Now, Bow says they are close friends. He recently addressed Chavis’ new relationship with Diddy.
“As far as Joie is concerned, with me and her, we haven’t really been in that space probably in like 13 years – Really, that’s my homegirl, my daughter’s mom, so it’s always gonna be respect,” he says during a recent radio interview, as reported by The Jasmine Brand. But he does note that he spoke with Diddy regarding the budding romance.
“Don’t think that I didn’t put a call in and talk to her about what was going on…But even me and dude we spoke about it too,” he continues. “That’s a conversation me and him had, I ain’t gon’ share that, but it was a good little hour and 15 minute conversation on Facetime.”
More than anything, he says Chavis can do what she wants. For Bow, it’s all about having mutual respect for one another as co-parents and being in the same industry. “I just look at things differently. If Joie was sitting here right now, she’ll tell y’all straight up ‘He don’t pay my bills…’ But it’s still a line of respect that’s there,” he says. “Amongst us, that’s something we spoke about in private. We dealt with it, we moved on from it. I heard his piece, I heard her piece, they heard mine…”
