Derrick Rose and longtime girlfriend/fiancee Mieka Reese have broken up.
Reese announced the news in a message posted on Instagram Sunday in which she mentioned their son, PJ.
“PJ is the center of my life now and Derrick and I work together to co-parent for him. No Derrick and I are not in a relationship anymore but our friendship has always been there and will continue to grow. Even if our only purpose in life was to create our son, I’m fine with that.. My son is the greatest gift I could’ve asked for… Happy Sunday,” Reese wrote in the note.
Reese posted a photo of her and Rose holding their son, indicating that PJ is what is shared between them and the center of their focus now:
As usual, MediaTakeOut has the dirt on the relationship. They say Rose and Reese had been having trouble for a while. Reese supposedly moved out of the condo they shared at Trump Tower in Chicago to get some space. Reese reportedly popped in on Rose at the condo last week and found him in bed with another woman, leading her to finalize the split.
The couple’s son, Derrick Rose Jr. (nicknamed Pooh – PJ for short), was born on Oct. 9, 2012. Less than two weeks ago we shared photos of Rose dressing up like Duck Dynasty for his son’s birthday. Hopefully the two will continue to get along in order to raise their son as well as they can.
