Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star Apryl Jones continues to stir garner controversy after going public with her new romance. In a new interview, Jones proceeded with stirring the pot on her ongoing relationship with the father of children, Omarion, as well as the romance with her new beau, Lil Fizz.
Apryl Jones and Lil Fizz’s relationship continue to be controversial
The romantic relationship between Jones and Lil Fizz continues to receive backlash because Lil Fizz and Omarion are B2K bandmates.
After there were rumors for some time that Jones and Lil Fizz were together, they didn’t publicly confirm that they were in a relationship until this season of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood. The show also fueled rumors that Jones was pregnant with Lil Fizz’s baby.
Apryl Jones says Omarion only appears ‘unbothered’ by her romance with Lil Fizz in public
Jones appeared on Power 106’s Nick Cannon Mornings to talk about Lil Fizz, Omarion, and more.
“To the perception of the world, Omari’s unbothered, but he bothers me. There’s a lot that I’m dealing with behind closed doors that people don’t know. Like, not receiving support and a person claiming they only make a certain amount of money, and I’m only getting $700 a month. Like, little stuff like that. It’s just the truth. So what are you gonna tell your children when they find out what you did to their mom?” she said.
She also alleged that Omarion is “mean” to her and is jealous that she is doing well. Jones claims that she has been approached by the IRS because Omarion said she worked for his company.
“I don’t want no smoke. Co-parenting cool, you can have it. He’s nice, but he knows how to sting. Omari knows that he can’t talk about it publicly because he’ll have to tell the full truth. And the truth is, he did what he did,” she added.
Jones also highly insinuated that Omarion and Lil Fizz, while bandmates, are not the best of friends. She said, “People just have this perception that this boy band that they were like a ‘brotherhood’ and ‘best friends’ … and you also have to remember that the entertainment industry has PR that is very good at their job which is making certain things look like great branding.”
Fans do not respond well to Apryl Jones’ statements about Omarion
While it has not officially been confirmed, reports claim that Omarion has primary custody of their two children, Megaa and A’mei. Back in 2018 when Omarion had Jones served with papers on Mother’s Day, she said on Instagram, “He is going to take his kids as he should. Y’all going to see him more with them.” Still, the two are apparently still in court over custody matters.
Because of that, many fans have noted that it seems unreasonable that Jones wants more money. “Apryl Jones just needs to stop doing interviews at this point, she digs a bigger hole for herself every time,” tweeted someone.
Another fan added, “I don’t get why Apryl can’t just date Fizz in peace. I get the reality tv bit, but sis is out here going on about getting $700 for kids that don’t stay with her and how Fizz is the best she’s ever had. If that’s the case, enjoy that and stop making yourself look clumsy.”
Someone else said, “I know I’m late late but Apryl Jones mad at Omarion bc he only giving her $700 for support? Does she not work? Do the kids live with her? Her new man can’t make up the difference?”
Some did defend Jones, however. One person tweeted, ” […] child support is *supposed* to ensure the children don’t have a different standard of living between the two households bc the assumption is they should’ve been one household in the first place.”
Hopefully, things are worked out for the better for Jones and Omarion’s kids.
