Women everywhere mocked Vivica A. Fox for lacking the self-esteem and confidence to move on after being dumped by former boyfriend 50 Cent nearly 2 decades ago.

In a recent interview with VladTV, the actress praised Fiddy and said the rapper was - and forever will be - "the love of my life."

Vivica and Fiddy, 45, dated in 2003 after she divorced Christopher Harvest, aka Sixx-Nine, in 2002.

She says she still loves the "In Da Club" rapper, real name Curtis Jackson III.

But women dragged the 56-year-old "Cocktail with Queens" host for her embarrassingly needy and clingy behavior.

Vivica responded to the criticism on Friday morning by sharing a throwback video on Instagram that shows the rapper praising the dress she wore to the 3rd Annual BET Awards in 2003.

In the video, Fiddy says:

"I'm enjoying myself. This is a big change in my life. I'm just happy to be present with all of these beautiful people in here... I want to thank Vivica Fox for wearing that dress too."

Vivica proudly captioned the video:

"TGIF Dawlings! #FBF moments! #CLASSIC @randirahm dress #LifeIsGood #GodIsGood #Blessed #Respect #GurlPower #VivicaFoxHair #TeamVivica #TeamFox #MyGrindDontStop #LegitimateCareer #BossMoves #LoveWins #ClassicBadChick."
