“I do still feel bad about getting a divorce, even after everything X put me through, because I took my vows very seriously,” she told Essence in 2012.
“And I know X is never going to love anyone the way he loves me, and I feel the same way about him.
“But [there] just comes a time when you give your all, and you know you gave your all, and it’s just time to move on.”
She added: “When you know [you’ve given] 100 percent, then I would say definitely consider divorce.
