In August she took to Instagram to air her grievances in a statement that began with: ‘I’m tired of getting cheated on and being embarrassed behind the scenes.
‘All 12 of y’all bums (the ones that I know of there’s probably more) can have him’ she continued. ‘Y’all very much knew he was in a relationship with a baby and y’all decided to f**k him anyway. I saw all the texts and DM’s. Y’all were well aware but y’all don’t owe me any loyalty so it’s whatever.’
Rose continued to say that the ‘lack of loyalty and the disrespect’ from Edwards was ‘ridiculous’ and that she was ‘done.’

Several days after her public declaration he took to Instagram live with DJ Big Von where he confessed to cheating and said that though he ‘loved her’ infidelity was was his ‘true nature.’
‘I thought, “s**t I got caught,”‘ he said of his thoughts after seeing her post. ‘I got caught before, you know what I’m saying? And she’s just had enough, obviously,’ he continued, later adding that he was ‘not mad’ that she could not ‘put up with it and look the other way.’
‘I love her, though. That’s, like, my best friend, the mother of my son. I love [Sebastian], my stepson too. But…I like women.
‘At the end, I don’t think anybody can be happy or successful if you’re not truly yourself, whether other people understand it or blame you…It’s just who I am, and it’s not how she wants to be loved.’

‘I know that I could stop [cheating],’ he continued. ‘I could give her a good, solid six months and just really like, deprive myself of my true nature for as long as I can take it but I don’t want to live like that.’
Amber had previously said in 2019 that Edwards came ‘into my life at a time where I’ve had enough of the narcissistic, cheating and abuse I’ve endured over the years from my previous relationships,’ and credited him with teaching her to love in the ‘healthiest way.’
