Social media confirmed that the breakup occurred since their last appearance on Love After Lockup. The couple has continued to take jabs at one another online. However, Maurice continues to enjoy life with Mandy, the new girlfriend, according to Starcasm.

However, in February 2021, Maurice said on Instagram that he felt “lonely” in LA. “I love you,” Jessica responded, “and I’m sorry you’re going through so much right now.” Just know that I’ll always be here for you and that I’ll always have your back.”

Jessica has already removed the photos of Maurice from her Instagram. She refers to herself as “Ma’liq’s Mom” in her biography. She expresses how much “mommy and daddy” adore and are proud of their child in each of Ma’liq’s images.
