Bow Wow‘s baby’s mama, Joie Chavis, has come forward to address his recent admission to being suicidal and having a new daughter, Shai. According to Hiphopwired.com, Joie said that Bow Wow would often talk to her about his depression. She said, “He would always talk to me. We became friends before anything. So he would always talk to me and I was straight to the point with him. I would always tell him ‘you have fans, you have people who admire and look up to you.”
- She continued, “You have a beautiful blessing on the way that you have to live for. You have so much to live for so don’t think like that.’ I was definitely always there for him to cope with whatever he was going through. And just letting him know, be that father that you didn’t have to your daughter.”
