Fabolous spent some time over the holidays reflecting on his two-decade relationship with Emily B, as the couple welcomed their third child together in 2020. The Brooklyn rapper took to Instagram on Monday (January 4) to share the beauty of starting a family and growing old with a long-term partner, rather than the polygamous nature of Hip Hop that is often pushed and portrayed inside rap culture.
“I know the cool of this generation is being savage & not giving a fuck,” he began. “And all the rap songs say money over everything & everybody is sleeping wit somebody else’s man or woman.”
Fab continued, “But fa real.. having a partner to love, share life with, raise a family together with, & make each other better is real GOALS. That’s the real COOL. That’s really WINNING!! Love You @emilyb_.”
Followers such as Harlem legend Jim Jones and actress Lala Anthony saluted Fab’s growth and candidness when opening up about his relationship goals, while others weren’t so kind with their reactions.
“Not having to go thru trauma to experience this type of love is even cooler,” a fan chimed in under Fab’s Instagram comments.
Another Twitter user wrote, “I really don’t understand how people admire Fabolous & Emily B’s relationship. This man knocked her teeth out!!! Like, we ain’t coming back from that. Ain’t enough captions, pictures, or outfits in the world.”

The incident mentioning Emily B’s teeth stems from an alleged 2018 “violent encounter,” which resulted in Fabolous reportedly knocking out the reality star’s two front teeth following a heated exchange where she was punched in the face seven times.
Following the alleged domestic dispute, Fab — born John Jackson — turned himself in to authorities and was booked on aggravated assault charges and making terroristic threats, before being released from police custody shortly after.

Fab knocked Emily B teeth into 2029, yet Americans are congratulating them. 😂😂😂
Fabolous & Emily B worked out their issues like real couples do. their love for each other outweigh people opinions and what blogs say. I don’t understand why people don’t want to see them happy together especially knowing that relationships aren’t perfect. how can we judge?
It took Fabolous 27 years to publicly claim Emily B, only doing so after having her fighting bitches on national TV, THEN pushed her teeth to the back of her throat and y’all niggas applauding him because he posted a “sweet” caption under a photo of him dressed as S&M Barney?
It’s truly disgusting how @TheShadeRoom celebrates Emily B’s and Fabolous’ relationship as though that POS didn’t knock out SEVEN (!) of her teeth!!!!! If something happens to her watch how these abuser enablers will be “wishing her family well.”
