After Owen’s appearance on the show, Kenya duke took to Instagram and had an angry response she wrote “I have never gone to the media. The media goes looking for the paperwork. I have allowed you to tell your family, friends, and fans any false narrative that you want or need it to be about us, the relationship, and our kids.” Added “You haven’t supported us since April 1st. Nothing, nada, zero not electric, water, gas, not insurance (medical, dental, life, car, house, etc.), not groceries, not maintenance for the house, not the gas or maintenance of the cars, not the platinum card I got for us (because you wanted one) and you couldn’t get one (on your own), not the cell phone you had for 23 years; instead, you just got another phone number and didn’t pay the bill.”. She concluded by writing “You haven’t seen your daughter in over 6 1/2 months, you haven’t seen your son in over 4 months. This is your choice. You do remember us right?” adding that she and their kids were “useful when your content was needed. Or when I allowed you to live your best life while I stayed back with our kids, the house, and taking care of the business.” She said that Owen was “not a good guy”, calling him “deadbeat”. “I will let you get back to living your best life…lying, clout chasing, side chicks, and looking for a black celebrity friend group,”
Also shared on her Instagram stories “Gary, while I am not pressed, I am highly irritated.” She addressed his appearance on the talk show and said, “I was shocked you spent most of your time talking about me, the divorce, son, and daughter. If the streets are that good then why waste that opportunity and not talk about upcoming projects?”
