Kirk and Rasheeda Frost of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” recently celebrated 20 years of marriage. Their relationship has experienced extreme highs and lows, all of which have been chronicled since their start on the show. After starting the series off as one of the strongest couples in their circle, things took an ugly turn during season three when Kirk began extramarital affairs. Many fans criticized Kirk while feeling sorry for his wife. Now, the “word on the street” is that Kirk married Rasheeda when she was a minor much like the story of R. Kelly and Aaliyah. Fans have slammed him, calling him a pedophile and the current Robert Kelly.
At the time of his alleged affairs, Rasheeda became pregnant with their second son. While some hoped that a new baby would bring them closer together, it appeared to push Kirk further apart. The couple has seemingly come out on the other side, with many viewers touting the couple as “relationship goals” but others are not convinced. Aside from questioning their newfound marital bliss, many are now inquiring whether or not they married when Rasheeda was underage.
The rumors went viral after a video from popular YouTube vlogger Tasha K resurfaced alleging that Kirk adopted Rasheeda when she was a teen and then married her. In the Video Tasha K said:
Rasheeda moved in with Kirk and his family and the two soon began dating. The loyalty Rasheeda shows to Kirk is a result of Kirk stepping in for her when she did not want to move with her mother to Hawaii.
The vlogger went on to allege that Kirk adopted Rasheeda when she was a teen and then married her. According to Tasha K, the reason Rasheeda decided to remain in her marriage is that Kirk was Rasheeda’s legal guardian when she was 16. She claimed all of this was made possible by Rasheeda’s mother who supposedly approved the adoption after she made the decision to move to Hawaii with her new husband, who was in the military and stationed there. Supposedly, Rasheeda did not want to go with her mother to Hawaii and for the rapper to remain in Georgia, she needed a legal guardian. Kirk allegedly signed the guardianship forms so that Rasheeda could remain in Georgia.
Kirk vehemently denies the rumors. Nevertheless, as the backlash against the couple continued, Kirk and Rasheeda have taken to social media to clear the air. Rasheeda was the first to respond to the internet chatter about her and Kirk by responding to several comments on her Instagram account. She clapped back at one user who compared Kirk to R. Kelly.
Here’s some help I’ve never been adopted I didn’t know s**t about Kirk when I was 15 & sho wasn’t thinkin bout getting married.
Kirk further clarified things in a video he posted to Instagram with Rasheeda sitting beside him. He added:
I ain’t f***ing adopt Rasheeda…I would definitely not be in there marrying nobody at muthaf***ing 17 and I’m 31. I know y’all read stuff on the internet about people ages and think you know, you don’t know. I’m not gonna sit here and tell nobody age but I’m not interested in marrying a minor.
The allegations have infuriated many of the fans who have yet to forgive Kirk for his disrespectful behavior against his wife. Viewers watched as he insulted Rasheeda, went on boys’ trips that landed him in a hot tub with future co-stars and had another child with a woman that was not his wife. He also suggested that Rasheeda not got through with her pregnancy while carrying their second child and was filmed on camera swabbing their baby for paternity results.
One viewer with the Twitter handle @ButterDo32 refused to accept that the couple has all of a sudden become “relationship goals “ for others to look to in times of distress. She tweeted:
Everyone saying Kirk and Rasheeda are goals need to look up the meaning and review their relationship. He cheated too many times, had an outside kid, made her look like a fool in public and she stayed. If that’s goals, y’all can keep that.
Another critic tweeted:
Somebody explain to me how Kirk had 7 kids but Rasheeda only has 2 by him and they been married over 20 years! Now this math not adding up.
Despite the couple’s rebuttal. Fans have slammed Frost comparing him to R. Kelly. Many years ago, Kelly, then 27, married 15-year-old R&B singer Aaliyah Dana Haughton in a secret ceremony arranged by the singer at a hotel in Chicago. Under pressure from her parents, the marriage was annulled months later because of her age. Did Kirk imitate that behavior?
At this time, the rumors have gone viral. However, if the Frosts were really interested in coming clean, they could simply state their real ages. Without that their negation does not ring true. Granted, they do not owe any fans this information, however, they still chose to address the rumors. Now, fans want to know if they took the time to do that why not go all the way and present some receipts?
