The caption that was written by the gospel singer on her social handle might suggest she will be alright despite her messy relationships, but she sure learned what not to repeat in her next relationship.

In an interview by TV One TV on March 26, 2018, the Grammy-winning singer elaborated on what was wrong with the past relationships that led to her being divorced twice.

Beginning to share about her first failed marriage, she said she got married at the mere age of twenty for the first time.

Seeing her parents’ and grandparents’ marriages last, she was not very thoughtful of what really goes into a relationship to make it work. In her words,

But yes, that didn’t work out. What did I learn from my first marriage? To be honest, not to do it again. I was young so technically, all I knew was mommy and daddy and mommy and daddy being married. Granny and poppa being married, seeing them last, but I didn’t know nothing about that stuff.

While her first marriage did not work the way she had expected, she decided not to do it again. However, she tied the knot for the second time with her former husband, Forrest Walker.

Although the accurate time when the pair tied the knot is unknown, she introduced Forrest as her husband in an interview video in 2014.

But the marriage came to an end during 2018. In the interview, talking about her past relationships, she shared a few words regarding her crumbled second marriage, saying,

The second time wasn’t good either. I was drunk when I met him, and I was drunk when I married him, I was drunk when I left him. That just didn’t work. It was none of that. 

Clearly, her issue with alcoholism also played a huge role in ending her second marriage.
