In 2014, Yaya Dacosta filed to divorce her then husband of two years, Joshua Bee Alafia. At the time the New York Post's Page Six confirmed that DaCosta filed papers for a contested divorce in Manhattan Supreme Court, but the filing was sealed.
Well now YaYa is claiming that she was never married. Here's what she said in a recent interview:
“You know what’s funny? Because I never talk about my personal life, it’s hard to dispel rumors,” Dacosta said in response to a question of how she’s moving forward after the divorce. “And a lot of people say, ‘Oh, just ignore them, they’ll go away.’ But no, I never got divorced because I was never married, first of all. But I did have a child with someone, which is more of a commitment than marriages these days anyway. I broke up with him right after the birth because like I said, it was an enlightening experience. But I definitely make it a point to ensure that my son has a relationship with his father because everyone should.”
“It’s definitely difficult letting go of things, ideas of yourself, in order to be able to figure out who you are. But if you don’t do that then yeah, that’s how a lot of people do end up stuck their whole lives. So yeah, having him has definitely shown me, or reminded me I should say, of who I really am.”
Very STRANGE isn't it.
