The pair dated over 10 years ago and had a turbulent relationship that ended in 2003. Viv said that dating 50, now 39, was “difficult.”
“I really, really cared for him and I loved him very, very much and I always will, but he just wasn’t right for me,” Vivica told host Meredith Vieira. “That’s hard when you really, really love a person in your heart, you want to be with them, but you finally have to say, ‘He’s just not right for me.'”
Viv said that she hopes for the best for her former flame.
“I wish him the best, he is amazing and baby, he’s fine, but… sometimes love ain’t always right,” she explained. “The heart wants what it wants, but sometimes it’s just not right. [I learned] to trust in my heart and know to take the time not to settle,” she spilled. “I think as women sometimes we’re afraid to be alone or we think, ‘Oh my god, he’s a great catch.'”
