Growing Up Hip-Hop star Angela Simmons swept fiancé Sutton Tennyson out with the dust to ring in the new year. That doesn’t mean her name won’t be throw into headlines alongside his… Bossip is reporting that Simmons’ ex was facing down a lawsuit and drug charges during their time together.
The gossip website claims that Tennyson was hit with a felony transportation and sale of marijuana charge after Los Angeles police arrested him near the airport in early 2015. They go on to say that Tennyson recently pleaded ‘no contest’ to a lesser charge and was sentenced to 30 days of community service and a suspended sentence of four months in jail.
In addition to that, Bossip points out that Tennyson is currently being sued by Ford for breach of contract. The car company claims that he stopped paying his lease and still owes them $3200.
Simmons closed out the year with a sad post that revealed to the world that she’s moved on from Tennyson, who has a young son with the reality TV star. She shed some light onto why she was separating from her now ex-finacé, clearly implying that he didn’t treat her well in a message to single mothers.
Calling It Quits
Overall, however, Tennyson felt optimistic for the new year in the long Instagram post.
“2017 … You were a beast . I can truly say that this year has made me stronger,” she said. “Well I recognized my strength to walk away from what isn’t healthy for me. I faced my biggest fears this year. And from that I am open to my new life and evolving.”
She turned her eye toward other women and began to offer encouragement for people who might be considering taking the terrifying first step of moving away from a long-term relationship that is no longer healthy.
“I truly have seen and been through some stuff that I know tons of women go through. And I speak up to let you know there’s hope,” she wrote. “All of those who are single mothers that are hurting that want to give up .. Don’t ! Also don’t stay somewhere that you aren’t valued . And don’t allow anyone to treat you less than what you are.”
She closed by asking women to accept nothing less than the best in their own lives.
“It’s not easy to face my truth in front of this cold world . But I face it with pride because I got through this and will get through it all!” she penned. “Protect yourself !!! Take the steps you need to make sure you are really happy!! Really happy inside. Not just a smile . Not just waking up to another day. But loving the day you are waking up in. I don’t speak to down talk anyone . But I speak to free myself from my past.”
