"Co-Parenting Is Not Easy"

Omarion’s ex, Apryl Jones, believes in the separation of adult business from children’s affairs. The Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood (LHHH) star shares what she believes to be the secret of successful co-parenting.


“Keep adult [stuff] where the adults reside,” Apryl reveals. “Let the children be happy and keep them always in the forefront of it all. That’s my belief,” she adds. “It doesn’t always work for some, though.”

Apryl Jones and Omarion were engaged to be married before ending their four-year relationship in 2016. The LHHH star shared her feelings about the breakup during an interview with Voyage LA last year.

“It definitely hasn’t been a smooth road,” Jones said. “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,” the celebrity mom explained.

Apryl Jones made it through the tough time and is now ready to support others with advice. “Co-parenting is not easy,” the celebrity mom says. “I think all the adults have to remove the emotions from whatever the situation is and really just focus on the children,” Jones shares. “I know that’s easier said than done, but all you can do is be kind and nice.”

Although she loves her kids, A’mei and Megaa, Apryl admits she does not want more kids in the near futue. “More so than anything, I just don’t want another baby daddy,” the celebrity mom reveals. “That’s the God honest truth,” Jones adds. “I just don’t want to have to deal with someone else and then my kids are getting older and I like that.

Apryl goes on to share what she hopes to pass on to her children. “I just want my kids to be good people to other people,” the LHHH star says. “But most importantly, be themselves, whoever they are, whatever mistakes [and] learn from them. Don’t make the same mistakes twice. But be you, do you. Live your best life.”
