Jhene Aiko Finalizes Divorce From Dot Da Genius
It’s been over a year since Jhene Aiko filed for divorce from Dot Da Genius, but now, the divorce is officially final.
According to a report from TMZ, since the couple was only married for 11 months and had no kids together, it wasn’t a messy process and the two were able to reach a financial settlement.
Rumors of the singer’s split from Dot came shortly after she locked lips with Big Sean onstage at Power 106’s Powerhouse concert last year. Aiko reportedly filed for divorce in August 2016, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
The split became ugly early on, as many fans assumed Aiko had cheated on Dot, while others assumed Dot had abused the singer. Aiko denied cheating on the producer, tweeting, “Never let a man disrespect u in any way… I only cheated myself. so glad to be free from all the drugs, depression and confrontation.”
Dot also shot down any notions that he had harmed Aiko, writing on Instagram, “In light of public threats, false allegations and attempts to slander my name and character, I am compelled to speak up.”
He continued, “Because my nature is peaceful, I’ve been silent out of respect for all involved, and to maintain my privacy. However, I believe the truth must be heard, which is that I’ve never been violent or abusive towards any woman in my life. Such behavior is abhorrent to me and far from how I conduct myself. Moving forward, I will continue to focus on my family, friends and music, and soon enough the entire truth shall come to light.”
Since splitting from Dot Da Genius, Aiko and Big Sean have been happily dating and continue to collaborate on songs, including some from her new album Trip.
