"I love you all but I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted, (not my man or my sisters). I am not about to be tried and tested to snitch and it's not in good taste to tell you who ... but as #tamartians you are very smart and can figure things out on your own," the 39-year-old singer-songwriter wrote on Instagram.
"But know that every one who smiles in your face is not your friend and is not cheering for you and will lie and try and tear you down to try and dim your light. Thank God He holds my future and my hand!" more >>
