Rappers are known for a lot of things.
Bling, video vixens, surprising lyrics, and flashy everything all ring a bell when we are talking rap superstars. Most are not exactly known for their quiet lifestyles or moral high ground.
They are also not synonymous with fidelity and longterm marriage. Sure, some stand up dudes like L.L. Cool J and Dr. Dre have managed to maintain long and healthy unions to their spouses, but generally speaking, these guys endure more marital lows than highs.
These twenty rappers tried to make things work with their significant others, but in the end, they ended up divorced. Ladies, the rapper lifestyle might be tempting, but really think about if you want to wed one of these guys. The odds are not in your favor.
