Amber Rose Dishes On Why She Is Content With Being Single

Amber Rose is opening up about her current outlook on relationships and why she is satisfied with remaining single after having several failed high-profile unions.

In the past, the model was romantically linked to music executive Alexander "AE" Edwards and rappers Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, and 21 Savage. In addition to her past relationships, Rose shares a 10-year-old son Sebastian Thomaz with ex-husband Wiz Khalifa and Slash Edwards,3, with ex Alexander Edwards.

During an interview with Sofia With an F podcast earlier this year, the 39-year-old shared details surrounding the demise of her relationships, how her mother's past experiences with men influenced her dating life, and why she isn't willing to compromise her mental health for love.

Amber On Her Failed Unions With Wiz Khalifa, And 21 Savage

In the conversation, Rose disclosed that her relationship with Wiz Khalifa ended after almost three years of marriage because of infidelity on the rapper's part and the pressures from outside sources. The former couple tied the knot in 2013 and divorced in 2016.

Rose recalled that she struggled with her mental health during that period. The mother of two revealed that after the pair's split, she "cried every day for three years" while also trying to cope with the loss by dating.

"I mean, I cried every day for three years while I was dating other people... I married my soulmate [Wiz Khalifa], and then all of a sudden, he wasn't there anymore," she said while describing the pressures she and Wiz Khalifa faced in their union. "Because of our mothers, the internet, there was too much pressure to be married so young, and we just had a baby. I was f--king heartbroken."

Later, Rose spoke about how her mother's romantic history with men played a huge part in her life, especially when the star began dating 21 Savage. Despite conflicting reports, Rose and 21 Savage allegedly dated almost a year from 2017 to 2018. Rose mentioned that seeing her mother not recover from being "heartbroken over a man" forced her to return to the dating scene when she wasn't ready.

"But then I also watched my mother be heartbroken over a man and never recover. So I forced myself to date people while I was not recovered. Cause watching my mom, I was like, I can't. I have to get back out there. I have to," she stated.

Although Rose doesn't regret her time with 21 Savage and even raved about how great he was, looking back, she admitted that she shouldn’t have been in the relationship because she was still grieving over her marriage to Wiz Khalifa.

Rose would end the statement by saying that in light of all the drama she and Wiz Khalifa publicly went through, their relationship has improved over the years because they have a mutual understanding, which is to be the best co-parents for their son Sebastian.

Amber On Past Relationship With Kanye West 

As the conversation shifted to her relationship with Kanye West, Rose says people are "obsessed" with that union because it was a "great time in pop culture." Rose and West dated for two years, from 2008 to 2010. Their breakup stemmed from West allegedly cheating on Rose with his now ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.

Rose shared that despite people's interest in wanting to know more about her romantic history with West, she doesn't talk about it much other than that he's helped her career because she doesn't consider it "relevant."

"I think people like to ask about my relationship with Kanye, but it was 13 years ago, guys. she said. "I obviously have to bring him up because he's a huge part of my story and how I got here, but yeah, no. I mean, I feel like people are obsessed with that because it was like a great time in pop culture. But in my personal life, it is not relevant besides just telling my story of how I got here."

When Rose was asked about her current dating life, she claimed it was nonexistent because she had learned to be content with not having a partner. Rose's last public relationship was with Alexander “AE” Edwards.

The former couple were together from 2018 to 2021. During their relationship, it was reported that Edwards allegedly cheated on Rose with multiple women. However, Edwards is now dating singer and actress Cher.

Rose revealed the main reason behind her remaining single is that she wants to focus on raising her two sons and doesn't have "any more heart left to give to somebody."

"I just feel like I don't have anymore heart left to give to somebody. I feel like it's unfair to bring somebody into my life and play with their feelings. I don't want to do that," she explained. "I'm okay with that. I feel like a lot of people are like, 'no don't say that you'll find love.' And I'm like, 'I have two boys to raise.'"

Amber On Remaining Single

Rose continued by saying that although sex is easy for her to get because she is rarely sexually intimate, she "doesn't care to force" herself to date. Rose wrapped up her remarks by admitting she isn't ready to date and doesn't want to.

Also, in the interview, Rose advised those entering relationships to be friends first and get to know their potential partners so they could avoid some of the mistakes she's made.

"I think that, like, people should really try to be friends first, really just really get to know people nowadays. Because you could be with somebody for, like, a year, let's say, and then just find out who they are. [I've] been there, [and] it's scary as f--k. I don't want to have to deal with that," she said.

Nicki Minaj’s Appearance At The ‘Barbie’ Premiere Is A Moment For The Culture

Nicki Minaj is opening up about the significance of her involvement in the upcoming Barbie film, highlighting how the brand has impacted her career as she attended the Los Angeles premiere of the highly anticipated project.

From the beginning of Minaj's rap career, which dates back to 2007 following the release of her first mixtape Playtime Is Over, the star coined the nickname Barbie after the Mattel doll. Minaj's love for the toy and the brand's representation ran so deep that she continued to incorporate the Barbie persona in practically almost every project, including the cover of Playtime Is Over, where the “Queen” rapper appeared as a figurine trapped inside a box. Over time, the emcee nicknamed her fanbase The Barbz and created numerous titled tracks containing the word Barbie. The list includes "Barbie Tingz," "Barbie Drip," "Barbie Dreams," and the newly released "Barbie World" featuring Ice Spice as a part of the Barbie soundtrack.
