Dot Da Genuis & Jhene Aiko

For the past couple of hours, social media has been buzzing about Jhene Aiko’s divorce from Nigerian producer Dot da Genius after 11 months of marriage and just a few months after the pair had been publicly outed as a couple.

A lot of people linked the divorce to an alleged romance between Jhene Aiko and Big Sean with whom she released a joint EP, TWENTY88, in April.

She has now responded to rumors about her infidelity on Twitter.

In a series of responses to fans asking about the divorce, she made it clear that there is no love lost between her and her soon-to-be ex-husband, even calling Dot Da Genius a “b*tch ass” for trying to play the victim.

When a Twitter user asked her “Why you do Dot like that?”, she responded, “Never let a man disrespect u in any way. major key.”

In a series of tweets that have since been deleted, Jhene Aiko revealed that Dot da Genius had not wanted to live with her and that he was still “BFFs” with his ex. She also suggested that he brought “drugs, depression, and confrontation” into their relationship.

She implied that she could raise more damning accusations against him, but she doesn’t want to “tarnish” the way his young daughter feels about him.

      So, bcos the world saw her frolicking with Big( I mean tiny Sean), it means she cheated. Her ex obviously has his own share of rubbish which is the reason she’ filed for divorce not the guy. I will rather see a woman move on than stay in a place she’s not at peace. I don’t care who she’s messing with.

      In the future, when your spouse starts frolicking with another person, just wish them all the best and pay for a vacation for them since it is not cheating.

      WTH, so her ex didn’t cheat bcos he’s behind the scene and nobody sees him. Naija folks mad bcos they tryna protect their boy. It’s none of their business, dude sounds like a typical fuckboy. Secret or open cheating is still the same. She probably did it as a revenge, where she just didn’t care anymore bcos their marriage was already over anyway. And probably when she filed, he didn’t sign it quickly. Homegirl gotta move on. I don’t like how folks are so confident like she messed up her marriage when they have no clue what took place.

      Abi oooo! I had to talk sense into my sister’s son’s home tutor (who is female by the way) because she gave the boy an assignment to write an essay on ‘Why a boy child is better than a girl child’. It is not about me swiping at women you see but some women are just damn foolish!

      Nowadays sef they just see a new trend and be like ‘Oh I can do that too? As a feminist? Ok I’m in’.

      My point gan gan is you say ‘Never let a man disrespect you’ but you are disrespecting him on a bigger level. Divorce him properly first before all the flaunting abi. Big Sean is not a fool o, he knows what you did to that guy and he won’t forget it can/will happen to him too.

      That’s what happens anyway when you are with someone who thinks ‘you’ve got to eat the booty like groceries’

      Please don’t be silly. What does feminism ie gender equality have to do with anything ? So women wanting equal opportunities is the reason why she’s cheating on her husband or what? No caveman ideologies here please. Do more with your spare time than drinking Ace I haven’t seen a woman defending Jhene Aiko so what’s your point?
      And you bring in a sexual preference that lots of people have to what end?

    Bella,respect ya sef..where in those tweet did she says HE brought the drugs!!. They could be her drugs for depression.
    You want a man to stop loving his daughter because he married you!!How else can you be in your daughters life if you want to make enemy of your Ex.
    Look,this lady saw a better option and simply moved on!!!!So many people want to do this,but are just scared to do so!!!
    Abused for 5yrs and you go on to marry him.
    Mention abuse these days and everyone blames the endanged specie MAN.

      Most women find it difficult to entertain the thot of their man being ‘friends’ with an ex. But, the issue here is that there is a child involved. So, like it or not a sensible man must be friends with his ex for the sake of the child/ren. The manner that friendship is managed is another thing though. An early divorce rather than a lifetime of misery. If she walked for the money, Karma is the postmaster general of the world.

    I find it hard to believe that in just 11 months of marriage you discovered all of this about your man, made an album and fell in love with BigSean.

    Jhene you come off much smarter than that, just say Big Sean with his Big () and his Big $$ swept you off your feet. That’s fine, we get it… But don’t throw your ex under the Bus like that.

    Of course she could have found all that out in 11 months ! ( although it’s not verified that he did all that, why cry wolf after she was found frolicking with big Sean and not prior to that) but pls my dear some people even discover their pot of mess after 3 months but obviously for the thought of what judgemental people will say perhaps, they would rather live with it. I know someone who realized on her wedding night that she got married to a violent man just because she didnt agree with his thoughts about something. To each his own , People who have it good should just be thankful …’s not by power or might, it’s the grace of God.

    So basically what she’s trying to say is that her love is hers to make and she’ll make it, everything else can wait??

    Time to go dig up bed peace.

    Good for her. I don’t know whyNigerians inflict sadness on women. So she should wait until divorce ends before she moves on. When the man is already sleeping for days outside the house even during marriage and obviously cheating. You guys are a funny lot sha. The mentality is greatly

    For someone so weird looking (is she deformed?), she seems to yap a lot of crap. Ain’t like she s a 8/10. Chic is barely a 5/10. Either way sha don’t come and cry on social media when big sean’s fu88kboy skills make a full circle on you.

    BNers, If the guy was married to a Nigerian woman, will your comments be like this?????

    You all would have started cursing the guy by now with comments such as “I knew it”, “He has been cheating with his Ex” and the popular one “Yoruba Demon”

    I guess since the babe is non-Nigerian, different strokes, right?

    Lol @ she disrespected our boy. What boy?? I mean Jhene Aiko’s music irritates my ears most times and her rant and begaviour with big Sean is really disgusting but please let’s call a spade a spade. The nigga fucked up. How can you not be living with your wife and whu should you be bff’s with your ex when you are married. She’s not asking him to fight with his ex but they can have a relationship that should not treathen his wife’s spot. Seriously most men need to learn how to balance these things. And aunty Jhene Aiko didn’t you know all these before marrying him? Smh.

    Couldn’t she have divorced him first before frolicking around with Big Sean?

    This has nothing to do with Dot cheating or doing drugs, plain and simple Dot didnt like Jhene going around making out with Big Sean and sitting in his lap, and I dont blame him. :what married man would be okay with his wife kissing another man?!?!
