Bow explained he instantly thought of Cole because the two were then feuding.
“For us, that’s all I can think about,” he explained. “We had went through some s**t… and for that to happen at that time, how it happened, [she’s] the first person I thought about.”
The rapper later went on to describe his ex as one of the “sweetest” people he’s ever met.
At one point, the two were rumored to be expecting a child together, before both took to social media to squash all the rumors.
