In a message to her fans, Da Brat said

“I’ve always been a kind of private person until I met my heart’s match who handles some things differently than I do. I have never experienced this feeling. It’s so overwhelming that I often find myself in a daze hoping to never get pinched to see if it’s real so I can live the dream forever.” 

Dupart then posted an update thanking all for “the love and support. It FARRR outweighs the hatred and the lies.”
