Singer & Reality Starlet Talks Bad TV Breakup & New Music With BOSSIP
Singer Bridget Kelly revealed that her ex-James cheated on her right before he broke up with her in front of the nation on “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood.”
Kelly said her heart was ripped out when her beau of seven years cruelly ended things with her while the cameras rolled for the show. But what took Kelly’s disappointment over the top was the fact that she’s forgiven him for cheating on her right before the split, but held back on filming about it in a bid to save the relationship.
The singer said she decided not to film about his cheating because she’d cheated on him in the past – which was revealed on “Love & Hip Hop,” – and was committed to working things out.
“The unfaithfulness on his side came around right before our breakup,” Kelly told BOSSIP. “I didn’t want that to be broadcast because it looks petty, like I’m trying to justify my behavior. I wanted to work it out because I felt so guilty about my past transgressions that I wasn’t about to throw him under the bus on TV.”
Instead, James jilted her, and Kelly soon hooked up with resident ladies man Daniel “Boobie” Gibson on the show. Kelly said that Boobie had been a friend when she needed one, and they spent a lot of their time discussing her relationship with James. Kelly insisted that the two never slept together.
“He came to be somebody who gave me a lot of sound advice,” she said. “I wouldn’t call him a distraction, but we established a friendship on the show, which especially at that time, was supportive.”
Kelly spoke to BOSSIP in New York City, where she was promoting her new single, “Happy For Me,” and finalizing her new album, “Reality Bites,” which is set to be released in early 2018. Ironically, “Happy For Me” is about an ex being glad for you when you’ve moved on to a better relationship.
“The idea for the song was when you see me out here doing all the s**t I wanted to do with you with somebody else,” Kelly said, “be happy for me.”
