Waka Flocka Flame and Tammy Rivera may be divorced, but they are still soldiering forward with their WEtv series. Waka & Tammy: What the Flocka premiered in 2020 and followed the former Love & Hip-Hop couple on their journey through marriage and the music industry. Fans did not realize they were getting a front-row seat to the duo’s final years married. They announced their split earlier this year but are still letting the world in on their lives as single co-parents. Waka has even brought along a new woman for the ride.
Fans suspected the pair might have been separated for a few months following some cryptic posts on social media that seemed to allude to their romantic relationship being over. They confirmed this in March with separate statements after a video of Waka on stage looking for some “chocolate” when viral. Tammy went on IGlive and told followers, “Y’all not gon’ Waka me to death with those damn questions, talking ’bout Waka and all that stuff. I said the man fine, him and Charlie good, we good, we are not together and that’s cool. We’re good. We’re in good spaces.”
Later on, during an interview with It’s Tricky With Raquel Harper,Waka says that the truth is they just grew apart, and he wants to normalize more couples having healthy splits followed by friendship and co-parenting. “People want it to be all kind of fighting and hating — hell Nah, we just grown! Like, why is it that when people evolve for the better, why do it gotta be something attached to it that’s slimy as spit?”
Waka and Tammy are determined to show people that there is life after love. In the trailer for their upcoming season, the pair show just how much their breakup has impacted their families. The description reads, “While Waka and Tammy look to rebuild their lives after their separation, details of the split are revealed to the public. Will the breakup affect them more than they thought?”
Deeply impacted by the split is their daughter Charlie. While not his biological daughter, Waka Flocka has been a father figure in her life since she was very young. Charlie is a growing social media personality who has already made headlines surrounding her sexuality and comments she’s made online about dating older men. In the clip, it is evident that those things will be unpacked this season. In addition to that, Charlie will express her deep sadness at her parents breaking up. In one clip, she can be seen crying and saying she wishes they’d stayed together before taking out her aggression in a boxing class.
The clip also reveals Waka’s ‘lady friend.’ In one clip, he can be seen getting a drink made by a woman in red lingerie. Waka watches her with his tongue out before saying, “i’ve never felt this before. I can’t wait to have kids.” A few weeks ago, he alluded to having a new woman and tweeted, “Am I wrong for hiding my girlfriend or smart for protecting real love?”
His mom, Deb Antney is definitely not happy about it all and in a separate clip, explained how Waka and Tammy splitting affects way more than them. In another clip, she expresses that she had no idea what was happening while talking to Tammy. She can be seen telling Tammy, “I’m really pissed off with you.”
