In an interview in May 2016, Flavor revealed the information saying,
“My son Karma, he’s nine years old right now, you know what I’m saying? And my girl, she’s at home, she’s just chilling. But yes, we’re still together after twelve years. You know what I’m saying? So I’m not mad.”
Flavor and Liz enjoy the marital bliss, but in the past, the couple went through a rough patch. The couple appeared on the VH1’s show, Couple’s Therapy back in 2013 when they were still engaged.
In the show, Liz confessed that the lowest point in their relationship was the incident when she discovered that Flav had signed the contract of a dating show without his girlfriend's knowledge.

“We were already together for eight months in a committed relationship, and we’re in a deli and the guy is like ‘Congratulations Flav, on your new show and finding true love and dating 25 beautiful women.’ I looked at him and I was like ‘A new show, what? Huh? Finding your true love? I don’t understand.”
In April 2013, Flavor Flav's fiancee, Liz Trujillo collapsed during the filming of VH1's show, Couples Therapy, and was hospitalized after ODing on painkillers.
