Jojo and Tanice will go through minor debates on Season 7 of ‘Growing up Hip Hop.’
Marriage takes hard work and determination to uphold. While Jojo and Tanice are madly in love with one another, no relationship is perfect — and Season 7 is showing that the couple has a few kinks to iron out.
On Season 7, Episode 1, Jojo and Tanice get into a disagreement about their work lives, as shared by the blog site The Reality TV Source. Tanice felt that she had to put her career aspirations to the side at one time, and she doesn’t want the same thing to happen again since she just gave birth to the couple’s second child.
However, Jojo doesn’t take her opinion too well. He blows up at Tanice and says that she’s implying that he doesn’t help with their newborn. In fact, it led to Jojo asking the cameramen to stop filming so they can work out the issue in private.
Once the cameras get back in full view, Tanice explains that she wants to be able to have the freedom to go out with girlfriends, put time into her work, hit the gym and things of that nature. Jojo and Tanice are able to come to an understanding. So, whenever Tanice decides that she needs help, Jojo says that he will step in to give her the freedom that she needs.
While most viewers were happy to see the young couple resolve their small rift, others were not pleased by Jojo’s behavior.
“All she said was 'don’t put me on the back burner,' none of that s--t he said. For him to gaslight her like that, he looks and sounds guilty,” one user commented.
“A Libra man ... this just triggered me,” another fan commented.
While it’s true that all marriages have their share of arguments, this likely won’t be the last debate between the couple. However, it’s very clear that Jojo and Tanice are locked in and committed to maintaining a strong family.
