Zeinab Harake admits no co-parenting setup with Skusta Clee
Zeinab Harake disclosed that she currently has no communication with rapper Skusta Clee, her ex-boyfriend and the father of her daughter Bia, but the vlogger stressed that she’s open to settle things between them for the sake of their child.
Harake opened up about this in response to show host Boy Abunda who asked about the status of her relationship with Skusta Clee, during an interview for “Fast Talk with Boy Abunda” on Thursday, June 22.
“For now, wala po akong any connection sa kanya (I don’t have any connection with him),” Harake said, prompting the TV host to ask, “You’re not co-parenting?”
“Hindi po (No),” she answered. “Ako po ginagawa ko lang po ‘yung makakabuti para sa mga anak ko. Do’n ako nagfo-focus ngayon kaysa sa mga bad things na nangyari before.”
(For my part, I’m just doing what’s best for my children. I am focusing on them now instead of dwelling on the bad things that happened before.)
Harake pointed out that she is open to co-parent with the rapper once respect is established between them. She said she is doing her best as a parent, and that she is capable of taking on the roles of both a mother and a father to Bia and adopted son Lucas.
“Dadating po siguro tayo sa time ‘pag talagang OK na, [‘pag] meron nang respeto saming dalawa saka magkakaroon ng respeto para sa aming anak,” she stated. (Maybe we’ll get there when everything is settled and when there is finally respect between us and respect for our child.)
“Basta kausapin mo ako nang maayos, patunayan mo sa akin na nirerespeto mo ako, desisyon ko or anything [then] wala pong magiging problema. Pero kung pasunggab, mahihirapan po tayo d’yan,” she added.
(Just talk to me properly and prove that you respect me, my decisions and anything, then there would be no problem. But if you approach me aggressively, then we’ll have a hard time.)
During the interview, Harake also confirmed her relationship with basketball player Bobby Ray Parks Jr., who accompanied her in the “Fast Talk with Boy Abunda” studio.
“He’s my partner now. Natutuwa ako kasi parang hindi boyfriend ‘yung nakita ko and sana ‘wag nga mausog,” she admitted. “He’s really a good man po.”
(He’s my partner now. I am happy because it’s as if I got [more than a boyfriend] and I hope it doesn’t get jinxed. He’s really a good man.)
“Hindi naman ako magtitiwala agad-agad kung hindi niya rin naman in-earn ‘yon sa akin, and pinatunayan na rin naman niya ‘yung sarili niya,” she then spoke of Parks. “First time kong napagtanggol. ‘Yung parang hindi mo na kailangan i-explain ‘yung sarili mo kasi merong mag-eexplain para sa ‘yo.”
(I would have not trusted him right away if he did not earn it, and he already proved himself. It’s my first time to have someone defend me. It feels as if I no longer need to explain myself because somebody already does it for me.)
Meanwhile, Harake and Parks sparked dating speculations in May after they were spotted spending time together in Japan. Not long after, the pair made public their courtship stage. /ra
