I really don't understand why u all are coming at me like I did something wrong. It ashame what happened to Jennifer but it happened. I did what had to be done I stepped up and took responsibility for my kids because they are my kids, not because of things u people think I would get but it wasn't even about that it was and always will be about my kids. So why can't y'all just stop with the petty bullshit
