Recently, in response to a few commenters who reminded her of the lyrics, Vanessa Bryant wrote on her Instagram:
I love when immature kids quote a rapper that has never been friends with Kobe and knows nothing about our relationship. Just shows how gullible they are. I don’t need to be in the gym. I’m raising our daughters, signing checks and taking care of everything else that pertains to our home life. [...]
I really wish people would stop THINK and then realize that they are being sucked into someone’s clear intention to monetize and gain attention off of our family’s heartache. This is real life. I hold down our home life so my husband can focus on his career. It’s a partnership.
Since my husband isn’t friends with Drake, we received a text of an apology forwarded from his manager. It’s done and over with and it’s now time for people to THINK before speaking.
Sadly, marriage is supposed to be a partnership but a lot of people nowadays do not look at it as such.
Drake, meanwhile, has already gone on record and said that the lyrics were never meant to offend Vanessa and he was only speaking from the male perspective:
That line came from a conversation about being this young and making this much money and the fear of losing it all. I just used his potential situation to address my own life. I never intended to offend Vanessa or anyone else.
Do you agree that a woman should get half of her husband’s earnings during a divorce, or at least half of what he earned while the couple were married?
