In a conversation with her mother, Simmons explained ending her relatonship with Tennyson.
“I just got to a place where I feel like I wasn’t happy and I tried and I tried and I tried and I wanted it to work because the last thing I wanted to do was not be together with the person I had my child with,” she said.
“I thought I met my husband. I’m going to marry him, we have kids. And it just didn’t happen like that. God had another plan for me.”
