One thing you were never banking on was becoming a tabloid fixture on the blogs from various legal issues to who you are dating. How do you deal with the fact that you will never again experience anonymity?
You don’t deal with it. You deal with life. You deal with what’s really going on and what’s really real—that’s your four kids, that’s your mother, that’s your family, that’s your business and that’ the people around you. You don’t deal with what people are saying.
I don’t know anyone else who could get away with having three of his children’s mothers [VH1 reality show star Toya Carter, singer Nivea and actress Lauren London] all smiles and peaceful when spending Christmas together. Want to give a few pointers?
I don’t think it’s anything that I do. It’s the person that I am. I think that just has a lot to do with it. It’s the same answer to the question about why I was never told I won’t be a rapper or I won’t be successful. There aren’t any problems with any of my personal or social situations because it’s who I am and what I am.
