Rumors have been circulating about a possible break up between Vivica Fox and her much younger beau Slimm and he has now confirmed the rumors are indeed true. He recently issue a statement regarding the status of their relationship stating the split had nothing to do with the large age gap but had a lot to do with eachothers schedule and the lack of communication. Read inside for more details.

He tells Too Fab:

She’s a good woman, it’s just one of those situations where in life people outgrow each other. I’m highly intelligent, very wise and one thing I hate is negativity and drama, I hate arguing, and I value communication no matter what the problem may be. So as in any relationship, tension can build up and I finally had to walk away.

I was only in it for love and it just didn’t work out. Even though she was older than me the age difference didn’t play a part.

The two began dating in 2009 when Slimm hired Vivica for an event he was hosting in Atlanta. Very shortly after they announced their engagement and have seen at many events together but eight months into the relationship Slimm had this to say:

“Unfortunately, me and Vivica are no longer dating. After 8 months it’s time to go our separate ways. In life you can love and have chemistry with a person but Flaws can sometimes outweigh the relationship. I wish her the best and I know she feels the same.”

The following day he retracted that statement and said he only acted out in anger:

I want to clear the air about the rushed statement released yesterday about Vivica and I breaking up. Sometimes a person may act out of anger and I apologize for my “flaw” of overreacting instead of letting time take its course. We have all been involved in a serious relationship resulting with making fast and unplanned decisions.

So, of course, no one is perfect.

Beyond a doubt I understand how to treat people you love. Vivica is an important part of my life and I would never try to hurt her. Thanks for supporting us as we figure things out.

We wonder if there will be any retracting of statement now after he has confirmed the split…stay tuned for updates on Slimm and Vivica’s future.
