It seems social media users aren’t too thrilled about Joe Budden moving on from his ex-fiancée Cyn Santana.
In September, rumors surfaced that Budden was dating a super thick Instagram model by the name of Shadée Monique. She was spotted at his pool party just weeks before reports surfaced of their alleged romance and she apparently accompanied the podcaster during his trip to Turks & Caicos in August. The two never posted any pictures together, but IG detectives matched up the dates of their vacation and pieced together their apparent romantic getaway together.
While the 39-year-old retired rapper never really confirmed if he was dating Monique, fans are sure the pair are romantically involved. On Monday, the IG baddie posted a photo of herself showing off her curvaceous body. She captioned her post, “And to think… I changed clothes before going out.”
Budden lurked in her comments section and wrote, “Which time out? Tuh.” Monique gave a suggestive response and replied, “U already know when n where,” adding a tongue-out emoji. She followed up their exchange with an IG story that read, “Can’t wait to go home n FaceTime daddy some nasty s–ttt,” and added three purple devil emojis.
The internet caught wind of the pair’s flirty interaction with each other, and it wasn’t long before folks brought up Budden’s ex Santana.
“Cyn ain’t fazed by that girl Cyn is gorgeous ? and relieved of that stress. Issa no for me dawg ? he downgraded”
“He def has a type…? Sorry mfs must be blind his new girl look better crazy part about it is she barely has make up on and looks tf good cyn wasn’t that cute sorry”
“Yo joe likes em thick but Cyn for the win?. I really do hope him and Cyn get back together for their family. I luv them together”
Santana and the “Pump It Up” retired rapper got engagedon Dec. 19 during Budden’s Christmas-themed event for his podcast series in New York. They, however, reportedly called it quits in early May after cheating rumors surrounded them.
After going months without Santana or Budden addressing their speculated breakup, the 25-year-old model sat down with Tiffany Pollard recently and spoke about her and Budden’s split.
‘I did what was best for my mental health, for my peace, and for me and my son,” Santana explained. “The best decision I made was leaving that relationship.”
The podcaster and Santana co-parent 1-year-old Lexington Budden together. They’re relationship woes will be played out on season 10 of “Love and Hip Hop: New York.”
