Angela Simmons Confirms That She Called Off Her Engagement To Sutton Tennyson + Posts A Message For Single Mothers
Angela Simmons is finally admitting that her relationship with her fiancé and baby daddy, Sutton Tennyson, is over! The "Growing Up Hip Hop" star took to Instagram over the weekend to reveal she is kicking off 2018 as a single woman.

There have been rumors for months that Angela and Sutton had called it quits. However, this is the first time Simmons has been vocal about their split.

Angela announced her engagement to Sutton back in April 2016. They welcomed an adorable baby boy, Sutton Joseph, in September 2016.

The reality star took to Instagram as she ushered in 2018, writing in the lengthy caption about "walking away from what isn’t healthy for her." 

Simmons didn't elaborate on the details leading up to their split, but she did state that she chose to leave an unhealthy situation. She also offered some encouragement to other single mothers.

Angela wrote, "2017 ... You were a beast . I can truly say that this year has made me stronger . Well I recognized my strength to walk away from what isn't healthy for me. I faced my biggest fears this year. And from that I am open to my new life and evolving . I truly have seen and been through some stuff that I know tons of women go through. And I speak up to let you know there's hope. All of those who are single mothers that are hurting that want to give up .. Don't ! Also don't stay somewhere that you aren't valued . And don't allow anyone to treat you less than what you are."
2017 ... You were a beast . I can truly say that this year has made me stronger . Well I recognized my strength to walk away from what isn't healthy for me. I faced my biggest fears this year. And from that I am open to my new life and evolving . I truly have seen and been through some stuff that I know tons of women go through. And I speak up to let you know there's hope. All of those who are single mothers that are hurting that want to give up .. Don't ! Also don't stay somewhere that you aren't valued . And don't allow anyone to treat you less than what you are. It's not easy to face my truth in front of this cold world . But I face it with pride because I got through this and will get through it all! Protect yourself !!! Take the steps you need to make sure you are really happy!! Really happy inside. Not just a smile . Not just waking up to another day. But loving the day you are waking up in. I don't speak to down talk anyone . But I speak to free myself from my past. I'm ready to turn the page . And ready to uplift anyone who needs uplifting along the way! 2018 ... I can't wait to meet you ❤️

Over the summer, fans began speculating that Angela's relationship with Sutton had fallen apart. Simmons had shared cryptic posts to Instagram about people being dishonest and having the strength to move forward. 


If you ever find yourself fake smiling .. walk away ... life is too short for fake smiles . And hidden tears ... it's so important to stay around people who keep you uplifted and happy . You have to get to a place where you stop placing the blame . We only get what we allow. If someone is loving you the wrong way ... Guess what ? You allowed it . So what in you allowed someone to love you wrong ??? What could keep someone in a situation that just isn't right ?? The answer is not fully loving yourself the right way. When we love ourselves we take no crap from NOBODY ! Love yourself first ❗️

In April 2016, Angela shocked fans when she revealed she was engaged. Her followers found it quite odd that the reality star did not reveal the identity of her fiance in her announcement. 

She wrote, "YES!! I couldn't be more excited. This is only something I could of only dreamed of," she captioned the post. "I'm over the moon and feeling so blessed to be able to share my life with the one I truly love. Everything happened in the most perfect way."

Fans wondered how Simmons and Tennyson initially got together as social media detectives dug into her mysterious fiance's past.

Simmons, the daughter of Rev Run, always had a squeaky-clean image. Many believed Sutton's criminal past could hurt her brand. 


Tennyson was arrested in 2000 and served time in prison for carrying a concealed gun. He was back behind bars several years later for credit card forgery, identity theft, drug possession and police obstruction. He was released in 2010, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections.

Sutton also reportedly had a restraining order against him for a year, requested by a former girlfriend. 


Fans noticed that Simmons had stopped sharing information about Tennyson and wondered if they had split. However, some media outlets reported that Angela and Sutton had secretly married. 


Simmons has been posting hints about the status of their relationship on social media, but has remained quiet about calling it quits until now.


Great people are hard to come by . Hold on to them ❤️❤️

It's clear from her recent posts that Angela is ready to tackle 2018 as a single mother. She's ready for bigger and better things this year!
