Keyshia Ka’oir took a break from nuptial bliss to sit with the Breakfast Club Friday and squash rumors about her children.
The new bride has been dogged with rumors that she has secret children in her native Jamaica. She took to Twitter last week to deny them, but did confirm to the Breakfast Club that she has children in Atlanta with whom she raises with Gucci Mane.
“Gucci and I both have children. We do,” she said, adding that they all attended the wedding.
Though she did not go into how many children she does have, Ka’oir explained that she keeps quiet about them because she wants them to enjoy their childhood.
“It’s a situation where I am proud to be a mother but, at the same time, I need it to be private,” she said. “I don’t want them in the limelight. I don’t want them to be on social media. I need them to go to school and to just be children.”
Ka’oir also explained that she couldn’t have children in Jamaica because she left the island when she was only 10-years-old, following the killing of her father. It is not clear when and how the rumor started but Ka’oir intimated that someone likely made it up to attack her relationship.
“They all live with us,” she said of the kids. “And we have a blended family and we have fun and they are spoiled and they are happy.”
