Are Cyn Santana and Joe Budden Back Together?
For years, we watched the burgeoning relationship between Cyn Santana and rapper Joe Budden on Love & Hip Hop: New York. The duo seemed head over heels for one another with the bubbly and out-going Santana complementing Budden — who is much more reserved and laid back.
The pair had been together for nearly three years and had welcomed an adorable son, Lexington, in December 2017. However, after all of that time together and being engaged for four months — the duo’s relationship abruptly ended in the Spring of 2019.
Now, after they attended an event together this past weekend — fans are wondering if the former reality couple is back together.
This is why Cyn Santana and Joe Budden broke up
Though the kept their split on the down-low –in October 2019, Santana came clean about why she gave Budden back his engagement ring and called their relationship off.
“We didn’t decide on anything,” she told Tiffany “New York” Pollard on Brunch with Tiffany. “I did what was best for my mental health, my peace and for me and my son, you know what I mean? It was a decision that I had to make on my own. This wasn’t a unison thing. How can I keep this very sweet? Basically, let’s just say that I’m probably the happiest I’ve ever been and that was probably the best decision that I’ve made in my entire life. In the 26 years I have of living on this earth, the best decision I made was leaving that relationship. And my son and I are amazing.”
Santana has been open about her struggles with depression and on an episode of LHHNY, we saw her calling out Budden for being “dismissive as f**k” about her feelings. We guess she finally had enough.
Joe Budden had hoped to win Cyn Santana back
In May 2019 with rumors of their breakup buzzing, Budden addressed them head-on. However, he refused to call it a breakup. He told a crowd at a lie-taping of his podcast, “We didn’t break up! There’s been no breakup, Now, words are important. So, what does that mean? What that means is that neither one of us said, ‘It’s over.’ Now, with that said, we haven’t spoken in a little while. I think her phone’s been dead for a few weeks.”
However, Satana was clear about the relationship being over. At the time an insider told Hollywood Life that the split was a result of a massive blowout fight. “As of now, [Cyn] is saying that it’s over,” the source explained. “She seems very upset, hurt and angry.”
Cyn Santana and Joe Budden are currently on good terms
Though they may no longer be in a romantic relationship — it looks like Santana and Budden are on good terms for the sake of their son. This past weekend they were spotted together supporting newlyweds Safaree Samuels and Erica Mena at their Met-Gala themed baby shower.
Budden posted photos of Santana and himself together posing alone and then with Mena and Samuels saying, “Sometimes you gotta come together to defeat Thanos.”
We just hope that everyone is happy and content.
