“What I can tell you is that the relationship 9ice had with Toni Payne produced a child. For this reason, the presence of this child will always create a reason for the two of us to see, because the father needs to see the son, and the son needs to see the father. So if anybody sees 9ice and Toni Payne together, it’s probably because they have come together to take care of the boy.”
9ice responding to questions from an Encomium reporter about the rumours that he was back with his estranged wife, Toni Payne.
“When I saw the pictures, it did look wrong at the time. I am small, everybody carries me. Every human being I know that’s my good friend carries me because I am light and I’m nice to carry. And he’s a good friend of mine and that day he carried me…we took a lot of pictures, we were just having fun. People have dirty minds, I don’t have a dirty mind. I always see things from a positive side. But now I know that people don’t think like I do, so I have to be afraid now. I can’t just take photos with my friend, I can’t hug female fans anymore. I have learnt you have to be afraid of the world.”
