Amber Rose is a single mother again after she dumped her cheating boyfriend, Alexander “AE” Edwards, who confessed to sleeping with a dozen women.
The 37-year-old single mom of two boys took to her Instagram Story on Saturday to share her experience after living with a narcissist for three years.
Rose opened up about her struggle to “fix” AE — and ultimately deciding that fixing a narcissist is impossible.
“When ur in love with a narcissist, ur brain tells you to run when ur heart says stay. Unanswered questions. Gaslighting. Stonewalling, Deflecting, Projecting. I wish it was easy for me to ‘fix him,’ but that’s not for me to do. The pain cuts so deep, especially when there are children involved.”
“I will always love him so much, but I know I can’t heal him,” she continued.
“Only he can do that. I knew I had to set myself free publicly or I would’ve stayed forever never receiving the love I craved and begged for. Tough choice because it hurts so bad, but I choose me.
“I didn’t want to have to do this at all, I just wanted my family MY HUSBAND. There’s only so many times I can ask a man to just be transparent, honest and love me wholeheartedly. I don’t know if I’ll get the happy ending i wanted but maybe I’ll get the happy ending I deserve – Muva.”
Rose, 37 and AE, 33, share 22-month-old son, Slash Electric. She also has a son, Sebastian, with ex-husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa.
She was spotted shopping with Sebastian at a mall in Van Nuys, California, on Wednesday, August 18.
Like most women who spent years trying to fix a narcissist, Rose has embarked on a journey of self-discovery to understand why she fell for one so easily. She is determined to cut off the narcissistic supply.
Alexander responded to Amber’s cheating allegations by claiming he’s just a man who wanted to “have his cake and eat it too.”
“I know that I could stop [cheating]. I could give her a good, solid six months and just really like, deprive myself of my true nature for as long as I can take it but I don’t want to live like that.”
