After months of speculation, with popular gossip websites reporting that veteran dancehall artiste Beenie Man and his girlfriend Krystal Tomlinson had split, the couple on Monday (January 18) confirmed their break-up.
47-year-old Beenie Man and 30-year-old Tomlinson both took to social media platform Instagram to share that after five years of dating they had both decided to go their separate ways.
The duo in their respective posts on the ordeal suggested that the break-up was ‘mutual and amicable’.
In a video Beenie Man shared with his following that he and the former festival queen had “grown apart”.
The video opens with Beenie Man talking to a group of men about an incident at the White House when he pauses his story to inform fans of the break-up.
“Alright before we go pon that. Serious topic, we ago talk bout this. People…ahh God,” started Beenie Man, who appeared visibly distressed as he began his disclosure to fans.
“How we ago do this now. yea Krystal Tomlinson and Moses Davis a this… yea… okay, we are a part we are not together anymore and it is not because of any bad vibes or any disrespect, it is just that people just grow a part,” added Beenie Man.
Similarly, Tomlinson in her post said, “part of growth is knowing when things have come to an end”.
“I’ve remained silent for a while on this question not to keep a secret but to get clear, certain and centred.
I am clear. I am certain. I am centred. This chapter on love, written with love, is closed,” added Tomlinson in her social media post.
