Boris Kudjoe and Nicole Ari Parker are black Hollywood’s hottest royal couple after Will Smith and Jada Pinkett. The two recently visited T.I’s podcast Expeditiously to talk about how they’ve managed to stay together for so long without scandal.
T.I and Tiny are still together after his jail stint and inappropriate behavior with other women.
From his rumored tryst with Bernice Burgos to the infamous slap on the butt he gave Asia’h Epperson, T.I has been at the center of infidelity rumors within the past few years.
While talking about love and relationships, the musicians noted that they have been married almost ten years and wanted to know what the secret Boris and Nicole has that keeps their dirt from spilling out of the household.
It turns out that it’s something surprisingly simple — they give each other grace and abstain from anything that would embarrass their family.
Boris says: ‘When you are willing to give the other person the space to mess up cuz we all human. You have to be willing to give your partner a chance to f*ck up royally and not run for the hills. But to stick it out, grow through the process, with your partner as well as individually and you come out of the other end a better human.’
When Tiny mentions that she hasn’t heard any gossip about them, Kudjoe explains: ‘I don’t think there’s a lot of major dirt but we also respect each other enough that I would never want to embarrass myself or her or the kids or anybody.’
The interview clip has since gone viral with many people chiming in to point out that there doesn’t have to be ‘dirt’ about a couple because it’s all preventable.
