Tichina Arnold and Rico Hines split explained
The Drillbit Taylor star revealed her breakup to a few people by showing a s*x tape of Rico cheating on her. The video went viral, although Arnold confirmed that no one from her side was responsible for it. However, she mentioned that this was not the first time Hines cheated on her. She said:
“I had that feeling of, you know, beyond him being my husband, this is supposed to be my friend, my confidant. Somebody who I can trust. And when you can’t trust the person that you sleep with every night, there’s a problem. I could no longer trust him. I could no longer lay with him. And it doesn’t make him a horrible person. We all make mistakes, but not with me and not on my time and not in my life.”
Arnold added that she ignored Hines' previous mistakes, but she also saved herself and represented those women who didn't know how to save themselves. While speaking to People, Tichina said she was thinking about dating again but had doubts about getting married again, considering her age.
