He gave me no other options. His problem with me was that I wasn’t prioritising him. However, how do you prioritise your chronic, cheating husband? And I’m making an effort to work hard and lay the groundwork for our family’s future security. how can I prioritise you?”

Cedric was dead weight honestly. He doesn't deserve a Rolex especially now that they're DIVORCED. He would be added STRESS onto Marie's already stressful situation. #BelleCollective— Teddisha Ashley ❤ (@TeddishaAshley) August 13, 2022
