Lira Galore, Rick Ross’s ex-fiance, was featured on an episode of OWN’s Iyanla:Fix My Life this past weekend, in which she explained some of the reasons she believes she and Ross were unable to keep things afloat.
“Our relationship was phenomenal, but then he changed,” Galore, real name Lira Mercer, told the show’s host, Iyanla Vanzant. “He was doing a lot of sneaky things behind my back.”
When asked if Ross’s actions bothered her she alluded that she didn’t feel appreciated, which she believes is a problem many Black women face from their lovers.“I’m angry because I want our black men to value us, and they don’t,” she explained. Her naïveté and willingness to listen to anything she was told, she acknowledged, may have led to the end of her relationship.
She also opened up about the aftermath of their break-up caused her to revert to drinking heavily, saying “I like the way it makes me feel,” she said of being a heavy drinker. “It makes me forget my pain, my hurt, my heartbreak.”
