Apryl Jones Talks Omarion Split: ‘He Didn’t Want His Family Anymore’

*Apryl Jones has opened up about bouncing back from her split from Omarion, with whom she shares two children. 

In a new interview with Voyage LA, the reality TV star slammed her ex, saying he ditched her and the kids because he no longer wanted to be a family-man.

Following her breakup with Omarion, Jones hooked up with his B2K bandmate, Lil Fizz… but that romance fizzled out as well.

Jones is now a single mother who is focused on her children and her wine business. Peep what she had to say to Voyage LA below.

“I was in a really terrible space 2016, where I had just had my second child, and my son was only one at the time, and I was going through a terrible breakup with their father,” she said of Omarion.

“He decided to leave without explanation and I was forced to have to pick up the pieces of my life. I went back to work doing what I graduated school with which was radiation science. I worked at MLK in Watts, CA. I was doing this for about [five or six] months until physically my body couldn’t take anymore. I ended up being sleep deprived and dehydrated from breastfeeding and not taking care of myself since my priority was my children.”

She then noted how she was able to save enough money to quit her job and launch her wine brand.

“It def hasn’t been a smooth road. There have been many challenges as I stated before that I feel could have set me back but it pushed me to wanna be better for me and my kids,” she added. “I had numerous amounts of days where I wanted to give up going through court stuff, dealing with being the only one here in Los Angeles with no family or support, being forced to have to move into a space with two little kids with no explanation because my partner decided he didn’t want his family anymore.” 

Back in November, Omarion shared his feelings about the then-budding relationship between his Jones and Dreux “Lil Fizz” Frédéric.

“I don’t feel no ways. I don’t feel any way about it,” Omarion told Vlad TV when asked about the relationship. “I think that if they’re happy, then they should be happy. I think they should change the narrative, though.”
