The Lil Fizz and Apryl Jones relationship

While filming, Lil Fizz and Apryl, who called themselves "best friends" decided to take their friendship to another level. They not only decided to become boyfriend and girlfriend but also moved in together.
Their relationship seemed to be exciting news for most of their fans because the two were facing problems with their ex-lovers, Omarion and Moniece Slaughter. However, it started out rocky, and some thought it should not have begun at all.
In January 2020, a rumour surfaced that the two were breaking up. It was alleged that they had unfollowed each other on Instagram. The reason was unknown, but fans suspected that there were relationship woes, especially since Apryl was accused of cheating.
When asked about the breakup, Apryl responded that the two were at that time focusing on raising their children. She said,
You know Dreux is a great man, and his focus is on Kam, my focus is on my children, and we are where we are, and I want to leave it there.

Jones said that Lil was a dependable figure in her life after her former boyfriend left her. She even credited him for also supporting her children with Omarion.
Apparently, these words did not sit well with Moniece. She lashed out at her ex-boyfriend, saying that he had failed to put forth the same energy and attention on their son. Neither Fizz nor Jones responded to the allegations.
Is Lil Fizz gay?

Lil Fizz did not come out openly to either affirm or refute the allegations. However, Bow Wow distanced himself from the rumours, stating that it was another case of someone attempting to gain fame off his name.
Lil Fizz's marijuana scandal
The American rapper, like most artists, has had a fair share of scandals. In 2011, the former B2K crew member was sued by the State of California for allegedly running an illegal marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles.
Law enforcement officers alluded that the then 25-year-old was one of the owners of the Little Amsterdam weed shop in West Hollywood. The weed shop had been opened on July 1st, 2010, and was in an area where weed shops were strictly prohibited.
The prosecution wanted the singer to shut down the shop immediately and to be fined a whopping $1,192,500. He was required to pay for law enforcement costs and attorney's fees related to the case. The cost would have drawn a further $750,000 from the rapper. It is unclear how the case ended.
