Enough Already! Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker Shut Down Divorce Rumors

Todd also revealed that being public figures is difficult because people are always making something out of nothing.

Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker are putting a lid on rumors that they are getting a divorce.

Although the two have been married for a solid decade, people think their love is over. But during a recent joint interview, the doting couple put those rumors to rest. While speaking to Us Weekly on Friday (April 19), the XSCAPE singer, 47, revealed that her daughter, Riley, 21, brought the speculation to her attention.

“Riley actually sent it to me. She was like, ‘Why do people keep saying that y’all about to get divorced?’ I was like, ‘I don’t know,'” the singer told the outlet.

After that, Burruss theorized how the rumors originated.

“I think it came from Todd and I on his YouTube. We were doing this thing called Todd and the Glam Squad where I would get my hair and makeup done [and] he would sit and we would talk about hot topics or relationship issues.”

“We’re passionate when we go back and forth. I think people kind of mistook that to say we were angry with each other. But we’re [just] debating the topic. We’re going back and forth about this,” Burruss continued. “I’ve been like that my whole life. As soon as we have a back and forth, I can walk out the room and be like, ‘OK, now what are we doing next?’ Whereas I guess to somebody that’s watching it, they are thinking that it’s more than that.”

“They’re analyzing [it like], ‘Wow, he said this.’ Or his posture.’ You know how they do,” Tucker, 50, chimed in. “But it was just good, fun conversation and people just took it wrong. I was like, ‘We are with each other every day.’ It’s not like, ‘I haven’t seen him together. His ring isn’t on or something.'”

Burruss also mentioned she is more likely to go ring-less than her husband.

“Today I do. But they’ll be like, ‘Why doesn’t she have on her ring?’ I hardly ever have it on. He always has his on. If he doesn’t have it on — then it’s going to be a problem. That’s going to be a problem.”

In 2014, Burruss and Tucker tied the knot. They are parents to Ace, 7, and Blaze, 3. Tucker is also dad to Kaela, 27, from a previous relationship.

Tucker also expressed that being in the spotlight has its woes.

“It is tough. You’re always on stage and you can’t really kind of relax out in public,” he told the outlet. “But for me, I think from doing reality TV early on with her, I really don’t pay it any more. We know what’s going on.”
