Karrine Steffans’ Miscarriage Makes Headlines In 2018
Ebony Magazine in July of 2018 ran a short story about Karrine’s struggle with miscarriage of a child with her ex-boyfriend Rotimi. The story insinuated that her ex-boyfriend had dumped the video vixen after she had suffered a miscarriage.
Reacting to the recently published story, she made a statement with BET.com calling the information three years old.
She would then go on to slam Ebony by saying:
A simply fact-checking call would have helped Ebony realize these events did not just happen, that they were running a three-year-old story, a report which I am sure has also been damaging to Rotimi and his family, all over again.
Her defense of her ex-boyfriend is very telling of her loving personality — the very trait which helped her make friends with various people in the industry.
For now, she seems content with staying off the public radar as she looks forward to completing her next book, which is yet to be named.
