“It was weird to me because I never met a woman who was like that before. I actually thought that was a good thing, like nobody could ever say they hit my woman,” he said. “I was more so in love with just the person, it wasn’t about the sex because how could I fiend over something I never had? But our beliefs were different and we were just better off as friends.”

Despite the heartbreak, Simmons and Bow Wow remained close friends. Their friendship was allegedly the reason that her platonic relationship with Romeo Miller never progressed, as Miller always felt that Simmons still had feelings for Bow Wow.
