R&B’s KeKe Wyatt is seeing brighter days after a stormy 2017, where the mother of nine faced a publicly nasty divorce with Michael Jamar amid her eight-month pregnancy as she watched one of her children fight through cancer.
For 2018, the “Nothing in This World” songstress is rising from the ashes with a new man, her child’s new bill of health after beating the cancer and an even newer outlook on her former relationship.
Around this time last year, Keke was raging out the emotions of her former husband’s treatment toward her in a public video while she was carrying their then-unborn child. Now, she can humbly look back on the year-long rough patch and the video with a new self-actualization.
Glowing with a smile, she also shared how the flame between her and her new husband, Zachariah Darring, sparked. After reaching out to him, with no intentions of a romantic interest, she clarified, he was immediately responsive. Things apparently took off from there, and the old friends are now newlyweds after jumping the broom in October.
“This man will never tell me, ‘Oh, I’m tired of dealing with you,’” she said. “’You pregnant—I’m tired of dealing with you and this baby with cancer. I can’t deal with you, your mouth no more.’ Like I’m not supposed to have emotional problems knowing my baby is on his death bed.” At the time, her 14-year-old son’s cancer was debilitating, and according to her, Jamar refused to empathize with the emotional turmoil she suffered from it while also pregnant. “No, n**ga, you are toxic, and you are an emotional wreck,” she scorned him. “How dare you! And I’m eight months pregnant with your baby that I didn’t ask for that you wanted to give because you was horny? N**ga bye!”
“You go on with that little ugly critter—that bat,” she continued, mocking her appearance in the shadiest “critter” impression we’ve ever seen. “Go on with it, honey! Have that hoe.”
Well alright then, Keke!
