(AllHipHop News) Rapper Cam’ron has blamed the popularity of social media app Instagram for contributing to the breakdown of his romance with his girlfriend of 10 years.
The “Hey Ma” hitmaker hit headlines last month after his longtime love, Juliet Casteneda, also known as Juju, appeared to publicly dump Cam’ron online.
Juju, who features on U.S. reality show “Love & Hip Hop: New York,” went public with their romantic troubles by calling out the hip-hop star’s alleged mistress, a make-up artist called Roxxi Braxton, in the comments section of one of her Instagram photo posts, in which she accused the woman of trying to steal her man.
She subsequently confirmed she had called it quits with Cam’ron as she replied to a fan’s message of sympathy, in which they applauded her courage for walking away from the relationship.
“definitely not easy,” Juju wrote. “But God Prayer fixes everything… even broken hearts.”
Now Cam’ron has spoken out about the breakup, claiming they actually separated earlier this year.
“It was kind of mutual,” Cam’ron explained during an interview on New York radio show The Breakfast Club. “For me, it just wasn’t fun anymore.”
Citing social media for bringing out Juju’s jealous streak, he explained, “When Instagram came out, it was fun in the beginning and then it became serious. (Juju would say), ‘Why you following her?’. Or, ‘You like that person picture’ or ‘People are saying this.’ And I’m like, ‘Yo, you gotta be my best friend because that’s what I’m in it (this relationship) for…’ It just stopped being fun and I think she felt that way too.”
The hip-hop star, who claims he is just good friends with Roxxi, also made it clear he had no hard feelings towards his ex, insisting she has plenty of great qualities her next boyfriend will benefit from.
“She’s loyal, she’s smart, she’s funny, she’s charismatic,” he said.
