Peter spent time organizing concerts and events from behind the scenes for the better part of the '90s. Since he was so heavily involved in the hip-hop world, he was one of the last individuals who saw Notorious B.I.G. alive and well before the rapper's untimely death in 1987.

For people who want a little more insight into Peter's personal life, he co-wrote an autobiographical memoir called Carry-On Baggage: Our Nonstop Flight with Cynthia. He crossed paths with Cynthia for the first time in a nightclub before they decided to tie the knot. They were married for six years before calling it quits in 2016. His current lifestyle happens to include reality TV cameras.
During an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show in 2020 via Essence, Wendy asked Peter if he cheated on Cynthia or embezzled money from her to cause their divorce. He shut those rumors down by saying, “Never. Never. Never."
There wasn’t any huge breaking point between Cynthia and Peter to cause their divorce, but it simply wasn’t working out for them anymore. When it comes to his childhood though, Peter has been known to keep those details closer to his chest.
Peter's past is as private as it gets, even though his current lifestyle happens to include reality TV cameras.
