A Waka Flocka Flame concert ended a woman’s marriage? Waka Flocka Flame is known for putting out club bangers that get even the calmest of people hyped, and for the rather controversial comments that he tends to make from time to time. But little did the rapper know that his music could inspire a woman to end things with her husband after she attended one of his concerts. This past Sunday, blogger Dianne D, who runs the website Deep Commotion, showed her appreciation to Waka Flocka Flame and claimed that her attending one of his live shows pushed her to divorce her husband. In her post, the 53-year-old writer recalls the moment when she first interacted with the rapper, Dianne D saying Waka retweeted one of her articles about the impact that social media has when it comes to artists promoting their music and started following her on Twitter. She also thanked Waka Flocka Flame for starting her new career in reviewing rappers.

Here’s a snippet of her post:

“As I learned more about Waka (and the entire Brick Squad Monopoly group of talented artists) I got back in touch with my musical roots and interests, and began expanding my follows to include more rap and hip hop artists than social media experts. Through this period, I began blogging reviews of upcoming artists. I was able to meet (via Twitter) some amazing artists and talents, and not just rap musicians but actors, writers, country and rock artists…a truly awesome mix of talent and celebrity.

So Waka’s following and retweeting me gave me happiness, more followers and credibility. He started my new career of reviewing rap artists. I can’t ever thank him enough.

My ex NEVER liked rap, my interest in rap & rap artists, or my blogging about rap. When I knew Waka was coming to Ft. Lauderdale, my husband basically said he wouldn’t prevent me from going (as if) but he didn’t want me to go. When I didn’t immediately agree not to go, things got worse. He basically implied that (and I’m paraphrasing) “many black men would be putting their bodies in close proximity to mine.” Also, “since I was so enamored of Waka, if Waka asked, I might go out clubbing with him and end up doing something I’d regret.”

So, basically, the experience with my ex of the Waka concert made my mind up for me. It was time to make that break, and live my life without looking over my shoulder or being beholden to an immature man who didn’t appreciate me or the interesting turns my life might take. We’ve been divorced for a few months now. I couldn’t be happier.”

While Waka Flocka’s concert might have ended a marriage, he is looking to tie the knot soon as the rapper got engaged to his longtime girlfriend Tammy Rivera on his 27th birthday that just passed.

Who would’ve thought a Waka Flocka Flame concert would inspire a divorce?
