So, did Derrick cheat on his wife?
In this day and age, sometimes it’s best not to put anything past anyone. While it is great to have faith that people will do the right things, sometimes it’s easy for anyone to fall short. And that’s the feeling that fans are having when it comes to Derrick.
In a recent interview with Tasha K, Candice De Medeiros alleged that she and the relationship expert were involved in a romantic relationship. Candice claims that Derrick told her that he was separated from his wife of four years.
Candice shared that she has known Derrick since 2009 after initially meeting over Twitter. She claimed that Derrick flew her to Miami, Fla. for a romantic weekend in July 2020 for his birthday.
During that weekend, his wife was allegedly in Colorado with her family.
And while Candice claims that she’s not really quick to believe when a man says that he is separated from his wife, she said the next time they spent time together, she went to his home in Atlanta, Ga.
Candice said she saw moving boxes in the home, so she couldn’t help but believe his claims that he and his wife were separating and that she was moving out.
However, she started questioning everything once he told her they could only communicate on Snapchat. Candice became suspicious and began to ask more questions about the status of his marriage.
She said he then told her he didn’t plan on being with his wife and that they had already tried to reconcile, but it had been unsuccessful.
“I’ve done stuff in the past," he said. "She hurt me. I hurt her. I cheated on her and even till this day she doesn’t know.”
A few days after that conversation, Candice realized she was blocked on his social media accounts.
The cheating allegations weren't new to Tasha K, who also claimed that a different woman came to her two years prior, saying that Derrick had forced her to get an abortion.
Derrick claims that he didn’t cheat on his wife and that he had a sexual relationship with Candice without actually being physical.
Of course, the rumors having been running rampant about Derrick possibly stepping out on his wife. However, he claims that he never cheated and that he and his wife were separated at the time of his encounter with Candice.
Per The Shade Room, Derrick addressed all the rumors in a video where he explained the situation at hand.
He claims that he and his wife were going through a divorce after she wanted out of the marriage. Derrick shared from that point he was in "screw it mode, f--- it mode, and I'm hitting up old chicks." He revealed that he and Candice "have had a sexual relationship without actually having sex, all these years."
He also admitted that he did invite Candice to his home, despite having feelings for his wife. But he is very adamant about not cheating.
However, Tasha K claims that he has been cheating throughout the entire marriage, which is something Derrick denies.
While there is no telling the future of his marriage with his wife, we do hope that everyone is able to come to an understanding and move forward.
