Omarion ‘Feels No Ways’ About Apryl Jones and Lil Fizz’s Relationship, but Wants Them to ‘Change Narrative’
When the mother of Omarion’s two children, Apryl Jones, began dating Lil Fizz, a bandmate he’s known since the age of 13, everyone had something to say except for Omarion himself.
In a DJ Vlad interview, the singer finally opened up about his feelings regarding their controversial relationship.
Omarion and Lil Fizz ‘working’ relationship
In 1998, then 13-year-old Dreux Pierre “Lil Fizz” Frederic joined a music group alongside Jarell Damonte “J-Boog” Houston Sr. and De’Mario Monte “Raz-B” Thornton.
Their music producer, Chris Stokes, discovered then 13-year-old Omari Ishmael “Omarion” Grandberry a year later, and he joined the group as well.
They decided to name themselves B2K because they officially formed in 2000 and considered themselves “Boys of the New Millennium.” Their self-titled debut album, released two years later, peaked at number two on the U.S. Billboard 200 charts.
In 2003, B2K’s sophomore album hit number ten on the Billboard 200, with the successful single, “Bump, Bump, Bump,” peaking at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
The group also starred in cult-classic You Got Served, which earned them a Kid’s Choice Award in 2003 for Favorite Music Group. Shortly after the movie’s release, the group split after three members accused Stokes of molesting them.
Omarion decided to go solo and stayed with Stokes, who continued to manage his career. In 2019, B2K reunited for a successful three-month city tour.
Omarion and Apryl Jones former relationship
Only four months after her birth, Omarion and Jones announced their separation on social media. Their breakup seemed amicable until Jones began blasting the father of her children on Instagram in 2018.
Jones claimed she was never happy in their relationship and accused him of not financially supporting their kids. Omarion has never responded to Jones’ allegations.
Lil Fizz and Apryl Jones began dating
In mid-2019, only months after Omarion and Fizz concluded their B2K tour, Jones and Fizz’s social media activity started to raise eyebrows. People began questioning if Jones was dating her baby daddy’s bandmate, and they vehemently denied it.
However, the mother of Fizz’s children, Moneice Slaughter, outed the two and claimed they were seeing each other. In October 2019, Fizz and Jones finally made their relationship official on the new season of Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood.
Omarion addressed Lil Fizz and Apryl Jones relationship
In a DJ Vlad, Omarion claimed he doesn’t “feel any ways” about their relationship, and “if they’re happy, then, they should be happy.” However, the singer went on to include he believes the two need to “change the narrative.”
After correcting himself a couple of times, Omarion said Jones is his children’s mother. Therefore, if something affects her, then it affects their kids, and they affect him. He ended by saying, “she should live her life,” but added “if it’s their so-called happiness,” then he wants to be left out of it.
When it comes to his relationship with Fizz, Omarion believes it “doesn’t matter” because they were still able to “give the fans what they wanted.” Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood airs Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on VH1.
