Naturi Naughton is finally opening up about her recent split from her long-time boyfriend, Ben.
The UNCENSORED star told ESSENCE, the two ended their relationship soon after their daughter Zuri was born. “I don’t want to be married if it’s not the right marriage and the right person. I went through a lot of feelings of inadequacy about why did my life not turn out to be the perfect picture story, but that’s just not what was written for me.”
The 35-year-old Jersey native even penned a new song, Stay Too Long, detailing what really went down between the two. Three months after the baby was born, your love for me was gone. How could you flip the script on me?…Love makes you foolish and stay way too long.’
Louder, girl! But regardless of the split, the two are dedicated to raising their two-year-old in a healthy environment, “God gave me a beautiful child, and her father is great and still in her life, and we’re co-parenting. That’s a blessing in itself.”
While mom life keeps Naughton busy, fans will be happy to know that although it’s the end of NAACP Image Award-winning series Power, she’s set to joinKofi Siriboe, Tristan Wilds and Uzo Aduba in Really Love.
