It's all beginning to make sense now. Kind of. Merely days after M.I.A. shocked the country with her middle finger salute during the Super Bowl halftime show, reports are surfacing that the British singer has split from her baby daddy and fiancé, Benjamin Bronfman.
According to The New York Daily News
, the rapper and her man are living separately since he's in NYC with their son and she's in London. Oh, by the way, he's heir to a $2.5 billion fortune (yes, b for billion)! He's the son of Edgar Bronfman, Jr.
who is heir to the Seagrams fortune.
Sources told the newspaper that M.I.A. "sometimes goes six weeks without seeing" her son. In fact, the source added Benjaman's mother Sherry helps take care of three-year-old Ikhyd.
It sounds like perhaps marriage was not in the cards for the couple. Even two years ago, M.I.A. told Fader magazine she refused to get her green card by simply marrying Benjamin.
"That's what they want me to do, but I'm not going to lose my integrity for that s***. I actually want a nice wedding. I'm not going to blow that."
