Last week, we wrote about Brad and Angelina’s public statement that they would be continuing their divorce proceedings in private. It’s not uncommon for people in the public eye to shield themselves during a troubling time like divorce, and it looks like another celebrity is doing just that.
T.I., the Grammy Award-winning Atlanta rapper, recently split from his wife of six years after what seemed to be a cordial and family-filled Christmas holiday.
During an interview on Yung Joc’s morning radio show on Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5, Joc brought up the divorce and said he didn’t want to see the couple split up. T.I. was noticeably defensive, telling Joc that the divorce “ain’t your business.” While it probably did not shock him to be questioned about the divorce, it is understandable that he would be bothered by having his dirty laundry aired in such a public way.
Should I Keep My Divorce To Myself?
Divorce is a highly personal and often distressing process. It is easy to become overwhelmed with emotion and uncertainty, and because of that, it is usually healthy to speak to someone about your divorce. Of course, you probably don’t want to go on a radio show and solicit advice from a DJ (although that might work for some people), but having a support system consisting of friends and family can go a long way in addressing your fears and feelings. It’s best to start small, with a best friend or a sibling that you trust, and as you begin to get a better grip on what’s coming in the future, cast a wider net. You’d be surprised how much people are willing to do for friends and family.
