It also looks like she's leaning on her friends for support. On February 28, she posted a photo with Toya Wright and Tiny. She wrote, "Associates are met in passing, friends are meant to be forever. Loyalty over everything. Family before anything."

Just a day before the R&B singer filed for divorce, she posted this snap on Instagram with the caption, "Blessings flow in abundance when you uplift the ones that stay down with you!! May God have Mercy on those that mistreat you."
