The previous relationship of him with Lachell caused a storm to Amos' relationship with Tatum. After Lachell gave birth to his daughter, Tatum cared nothing but to care for his child. Tatum ditched Amos for Lachell and his baby after the birth of Deuce.
The good-looking Volleyball player took to the Instagram story to write this:
"You think you "played" me BUT, who ended up losing? I mean what did I lose? A boy that didn't appreciate what I did for him? What did you let go? A girl that would go out her way just to please you and someone that rode with you through thick and thin. A girl who loved you regardless of your flaws(trust me there was a lot). You can easily be replaced, but a girl like me? Good luck finding a girl who put up with you like I did. Sorry, you played your damn self." @jaytatum0
She posted this on December 6, the same date as Deuce's birthday. It pretty much confirms that she felt like she was playing and wanted him more than anything.
