After spending nearly a decade together, Mia Jaye and Young Dolph, were planning their wedding ceremony which was short live at the hands of the rappers untimely passing.
For the first time since the rappers tragic passing, Mia has sat down with ABC News Live to speak about the “extremely difficult” loss, and how she’s been adjusting.
“It’s been extremely difficult, just having to pick up the pieces and to find the strength for my children,” she said. “That is the one thing that Adolph and myself, we just felt we had a duty to them… To protect them, to raise them, to just do so much for them, and together. Now that he’s no longer here, it’s just very tough for me to be strong for them and also be strong for myself because Adolph was my soulmate when I say they stole my future, it has taken a long time to iron out the kinks.”
Mia says she feels “uplifted” by the “outpouring of support” from the community. “I’m turning this pain into purpose right now,” she said. “And so I’m very thankful for the community starting the conversation of what can we do to lengthen the lives of Black men in America?”
