She also commented on what someone said about her custody situation with her ex, La'Berrick.
A fan wrote, “No mother should unwillingly have their child taken from them. Praying you and your ex can come to an agreement where you both can be active parents in your son’s life. It’s never been questioned the love you have for your son.”
Payton replied back and said:
“This is another LIE! My son is WITH ME, ALWAYS HAS BEEN. The fact that people repeat rumors as if their [sic] facts is jarring to me.”
In a 2021 interview with S&A Unscripted, Payton talked about the unraveling of her marriage.
“You have to have God as the center and you have to definitely have that person be your counsel – [that means] no family members, mothers-in-law…all that stuff can play a big role when they involve themselves and that can be very detrimental to relationships and a marriage,” she said. “Outside of COVID and the pandemic, having an early pregnancy [delivery], being on bedrest…everything played a part.”
