She fell for the old: "I'm separated" line huh? Never mind. We all live and learn.

In my opinion this doesn't sound good for her -- I can't relate. Am I wrong or is it when you break up with someone, you kinda stop paying their rent.... on Dykman? Shit you really can't get anymore uptown than that. If she couldn't cover her own rent and get a roommate after a breakyp that's a shame. back then her apt probably cost $1200-1500 TOPS for a 1or 2 bedroom and less for a studio. That area is the HOOD - way north of Spanish harlem, basically 1 stop away from the Bronx.

I imagine she fight wild and dirty, starting with destroying a probably $2500 expresso machine. She admits to throwing rocks through Windows but I wouldn't be surprised if she had other weapons. Shes so small yet willing to step to dudes so yippy know she's not going in with just hands. Im not saying she deserved a cut lip but i can imagine the choke hold was a restraint move used to get control of this wild hyena.

I don't blame him for leaving her when she was not hot either. as successful as he was, he could easily move on to a woman who isn't such a drain on his bank account from jump. He aint your ATM or your money tree, ho. And, he was telling you so.


I happen to personally know she takes advantage of any housing opportunity offered to her, including doing way too much at not her Hollywood Hills home while the owner was away. The owners talked about it all the time and told everyone bc she was so disrespectful to the property.

Sounds borderline.

When bedwenching goes ALL the way wrong. I can’t knock it ... I’ve been there. I had this rich white dude (17 years older than me) who was all but physical abusive to me. He was so mean and his energy was terrible, but I stayed around cause I wanted to stay in the house with the city views and go out to dinner every night. He was handsome and in good shape, but put me down every chance he could because he said I was fat ( I wore a size 4 and got down to a size 2). He said my behind was too big, etc. Theres nothing more dangerous than a closeted white rich man. I was miserable ... had to increase my dosage of antidepressants and I developed a drinking problem ... like most of those desperate housewives.

I learned very quickly that bedwenching ain’t the way!!! They have NO problem letting you know just who you are (a nigga). I believe her and feel bad that she had to go through this.

All I have on this is - I wonder after she wrote this long diatribe, did she do any self reflection and introspection to make sure she doesn't end up in this situation again.

This reads like "poor me" but unfortunately I don't feel sorry for her. I just hope she knows how to make better life choices.

@11:23 👏👏👏 you are on point!

Uhm, based on this story and by her own admission, she was the aggressor. She needs to get her shit together. Gets some meds, get a mentor but get something.

Ummm she looked at him like a Dad.....but she had plans to marry this man. Uhhhh this chick is crazy. She needs the kinda meds that have her lethargic and asleep all day so we all can be spared her bullshit for quite a while.

@12:42 no one can let yourself know whom you are And secondly •my nigga" originally means "my king" my queen the word spelled nigger and pronounced that way by the white ppl was b/c waaaay back THEY did not know how to speak and heard ourselves calling each other that sentiment true meaning my king my queen Remember WE thought the "whites" how to stand ond two legs they were on all fours like dogs way back where they do not put in "history books" or speak on

Cinnamon said...

correction We TAUGHT

Just an observation said...

Live and learn.
Can't really down her on making that choice. Men are very persuasive when they see a naive young lady. 18 years old isn't grown even though it's age consent. It's easy to be grown until the real grown shit happens, like her being physically abused and man handled in that way. Hopefully she is able to really heal emotionally from it.
Live and learn.

A dykman apt is a "lowered expectactions" version of gold digging. You lose, especially if you can't hold into it once you are set up. You can literally busk %100-150 a day for just a few hours during peak travel especially "closing time" late night singing in the subways if you're talented. more if you're really talented, tax free. She probably thought she was was to above that (singing for her dinner). Plenty of successful people have busked in New York subways. she is fucking lazy. People pay regular New York rent doing that (and notin a bad neighborhood if you have a roommate). I know bc that's me.

This girl may be a lot of things but lazy isn't one of them. She is actually an incredibly hardworking and ambitious kid. I admire her hustle.

10:51 Where was that hustle when she needed that Dykman apt she's complaining about, then? Writing and performing music is like 20% of the job. No matter what you're problems are, when you're 18 you are responsible for yourself; that's just a fact of life. It sucks, I know. As mentioned earlier, not pissing off other free and cheap housing hookups that any of us would be so lucky to enjoy would help. That's why she pretty much sublets or fucks for her roof and rarely rents legit or her own accord. Her crazy ass can barely hold anything down and is living hand to mouth. A couple more bad choices and she'll be bankrupt ir at least right back where she started. That's why she's been flailing about desperately for the last few years. Sorry to spoil your image of her. However, I'll admit some of the craziest are the most talented to their own detriment. 212 is fire.

Stop, Snitch. Stop giving her attention until she gets help. You're feeding her cycle and it's going to hurt her most.
