On everyone telling him not to get married
It was a pretty wide spread fact. There were a ton of people that believed in the marriage and a ton of people that didn’t. I go back to the moment I decided to call off the wedding the first time. It’s pretty hard to walk away from a high ticket wedding. I always felt like maybe we weren’t ready.
On if he cheated, during their marriage.
Towards the end of our marriage, I found myself lost and I just wanted out. No, I was faithful at heart, but not faithful all the way.
Jonetta, on Usher winning custody
I was so excited for him and myself because i know it’s been really hard, it’s a lot of pressure. But for him to receive what he received, what he fought so hard for.
