To describe their marriage as “rocky” would be an understatement. Since the time they exchanged vows, Peter Gunz and Amina Buddafly’s union has been doomed. After all, he was living with another woman, Tara Wallace, and their children when he and Anima ran to city hall to become man and wife.
Fast-forward just a few years, and, as one might expect, Peter and Amina continue to have issues. So much so that when Amina realized she was pregnant with the “Love & Hip Hop: New York” couple’s second child, she decided to terminate her pregnancy. She cited her dysfunctional marriage as the primary reason for the difficult decision.
“It’s just a messed up situation and I can’t do this right now. I need to think smart for once because I always think with my heart,” Amina explained on a recent episode. “I had to do this for me and for everyone around me.”
Though she hasn’t ruled out having more children in her future, Peter’s ongoing relationship with Tara factored into her decision not to have a baby now. Before she could even share her pregnancy news with her husband, she learned that he and Tara were still sleeping together. With the fate of her marriage uncertain, she opted not to bring another child into the mix.
As for Peter, Amina said the father of eight offered her support, no matter what decision she made. However, “He absolutely didn’t expect it,” she said.
Many “Love & Hip Hop” fans encouraged Amina and even thanked her for her decision and her transparency.
“wow as hard as it is to do what you did.it was the best choice you did @Aminabuddafly GOD will bless you again when time is right,” wrote one Twitter user.
Though he apparently left it to Amina to decide whether to have the child, she suggested that Peter may have been less than thrilled at the prospect.
“He does not want anymore kids,” she told TheKingIndeed.com in September.
Amina, who remains married to Peter, said she’s moving on and trying to find peace.
“I did what I needed to do with this pregnancy,” she said. “It was the right thing to do for where I’m at.”
