Chalk this one up to the whole “you never really know what’s going on in someone else’s relationship”: Model Amber Rose has filed for divorce from rapper Wiz Khalifa after a year of marriage, TMZ reports, citing irreconcilable differences.
It’s a surprise split, at least to the 2.2 million people who follow Rose on Instagram and saw her post a sweet wedding photo two weeks ago with the caption “I’ll love u forever.” Last month on their one-year wedding anniversary, she also Instagrammed a picture of the couple with their baby son, Sebastian. “I knew as soon as I met u, u were the one for me sweetheart,” she wrote. “Happy 1 year anniversary and many more to come.”
So — what happened? No one knows, obviously, though the tabloids are already parsing social media for more clues. On Tuesday, she tweeted a message the tabloids are already trying to analyze: “Reliving that moment over and over and over……smh.”
The Washington Post’s Chris Richards profiled Khalifa a few years ago and saw the couple before they got married (and after Rose broke up with famous ex Kanye West). The pair was very much in the “kissy face” stage and had to be “pried apart” while Khalifa did interviews to promote his album.
Recently, Khalifa sat down for an interview with Pitchfork’s “Over/Under” interview series and declared both marriage and fatherhood “underrated.”
“Marriage, it stabilizes a lot for you and the people around you,” he said. “I’ve always been the stability type of person anyway so I definitely like, you know, having someone to depend on.”
As for being a dad to his one-year-old? “I don’t feel like enough dads publicly say how awesome it is,” he said, sharing an adorable anecdote about how Sebastian recently grabbed a book and told Rose “read.”
TMZ, which characterizes the break-up as “bitter,” says Rose is asking for full custody of their son.
