Either 50 Cent really has the magic stick or there’s a deeper, more loving side to him we know nothing about because Vivica A. Fox is still talking about her relationship with the mogul/rapper — 12 years later.
Despite having been broken up since 2003 after a year of dating, Aunt Viv still views Fif as “the love of her life.”
The 50-year-old actress dished on her current feelings for the rapper on an episode of The Meredith Vieira Show that’s scheduled to air on Monday. When asked about their past relationship, Vivica, who’s currently dating fellow actor Robert Ri’chard, admitted that she still and will always love her famous ex-boyfriend.
But don’t waste your time rooting for a reconciliation because even though “the heart wants what it wants,” Viv isn’t looking for that old thang back.
He is absolutely the love of my life. I really, really cared for him and I loved him very, very much and I always will, but he just wasn’t right for me, That’s hard when you really, really love a person in your heart, you want to be with them, but you finally have to say, ‘He’s just not right for me.’
I wish him the best, he is amazing and baby, he’s fine, but… sometimes love ain’t always right. The heart wants what it wants, but sometimes it’s just not right.”
Ain’t that the truth!
The break-up was so messy with 50 accusing Vivica of using him for publicity and being a stalker. But he finally apologized years later and ended up featuring her in one of his music videos. His comments about her have been less disrespectful since then, too.
On an interview with The Rickey Smiley show last year, he said their relationship was an accident and happened too fast. He also alluded to timing and his need to “float” being an issue as well.
That was an accident. That happened so fast. I was so green I was like the front lawn. You know how a woman says she needs closure, she need to have that conversation or whatever? That might spin me right back into the actual relationship.
On how he and Vivica broke up:
It’s the touring. Our lives would be moving us in different directions at the same time. So it’s enough space for us to actually still be into each other. But if you’re away from each other and it’s not right, then she’ll start getting off into things while you’re getting into things at the same time. I like to float away. It’s nice to float.
He also added:
I feel like women require maintenance. I don’t know if you agree with that statement, but if not financial, then mental.
Vivica also added one valuable lesson that she learned from her relationship with 50:
“[I learned] to trust in my heart and know to take the time, not to settle. I think as women sometimes we’re afraid to be alone […]”
And we trick ourselves into believing he’s right…when we know it’s oh so wrong.
I’m with you girl!
Hopefully, we get to see Vivica find true love.
