These 4 Celebs Prove That Women Should Never Settle For Less!

As a woman, why are we often choose partners who are just so not on our levels, both physically and professionally? No matter how many red flags we see, we still give that person a chance. Why? Because we think that we don’t have the right to be picky? We think we should take what we can get in case no one else stumbles along who is interested in us? 

But I wish a lot of girls would understand this… ‘’For every man that won’t, there’s another one that will.’’ Be courageous enough to walk away from things that aren’t no longer serve us. Life is too short to be wasting it on people and things that are toxic to your life.

If the relationship no longer provides positive results for your life, then it may be time to move on. We are often disappointed when we give our hearts to those who never asked for it. Some people aren’t ready for, nor do they deserve, all the love you have to give. The one who is ready and willing to receive your love, will be ready and willing to show you love. Just take a look at these 4 women for examples: 

1. Ciara & Russell Wilson

Before she met Russell Wilson, Ciara was in a relationship with rapper Future for almost two years—they even shared a child together—until she caught him cheating with multiple women. At one point, they were already planning their wedding, and Ciara may have already picked out a dress. 

Ciara shed a lot of tears over Future. “I’d have moments when I would be in the shower, I’d be crying. I had a few different settings—crying in the bedroom, crying in the shower… crying because I’m not in the happiest place, and it hurts what I’m going through.” To add insult to injury, she had to deal with all this being public knowledge. Everything played out in the public eye, since both of them are famous.

But the pain didn’t last long. When I tell you, God’s timing is always on point.. believe me. Months after she dumped Future, she received the greatest love she ever experienced. And just under a year, Ciara was engaged, married, pregnant with her second child—now expecting the third—with Russell. It was revealed that Russell once told one of his friends, ‘’That’s the girl I’m gonna marry’’ (referring to Ciara). 

I think we can all agree that Russell Wilson was more than ready and willing to be, and do for Ciara, what her ex wasn’t willing to be. He appears to not only be good to her but good for her. Now look at her, happy and thriving… While Future currently has eight children, with six different women, and he’s paying child support for all of them. Life’s good, huh

2. Cassie Ventura & Alex Fine

In Cassie’s case, let’s just say that, ‘’For every man that won’t, there’s another one that will.’’ Cassie really wasted 10 years, I repeat, 10 years with P.Diddy. The duo first met in the early 2003 when Cassie was signed to the music legend’s label, Bad Boy Records. Not long after, it was clear that the pair had more than a professional relationship.

Diddy has 6 children with 3 different women—before she met Cassie—and it was crystal clear that out of all the women in his life, Diddy favoured his now deceased ex supermodel girlfriend, Kim Porter the most. And though, after numerous times Diddy had humiliated her publicly, Cassie stayed by his side, hoping for him to change or proposed to her one day. We’re talking 10 years here

But soon after Kim’s death, and it became more clear that no women could ever take Kim’s place—Diddy declared his love openly almost everyday, telling the world how much he loves her, miss her and how he should have married her etc—realizing this, Cassie knew that she could never be enough. She then left him for good and moved on.

On December 31st 2018, Diddy posted an Insta story: a picture of Cassie with a caption ‘’I ❤ Cassie’’. And minutes after, Cassie shadedly posted a photo on her insta kissing a new man. Yes girl. Fans soon started to bombard Cassie’s comment section asking about her new beau and later found out that her new boo is Diddy’s ex trainer by the name Alex Fine. 

Fast forward to a year later, Cassie was pregnant, engaged and happily married. You see, when a real man knows what he wanted, you will know. He will go all the way out to prove to you that he wants to spend the rest of his life with you. Alex Fine gave Cassie all the things that she desired in just a year, what Diddy couldn’t give to her in 10 years!

3. Nikki Bella & Artem

Not a lot of people know about these two, but trust me, it is as interesting as Ciara’s and Cassie’s. Nikki Bella was in a relationship with WWE’s legend John Cena for almost 7 years before they called it quits. For the whole time that they were together, friends and families often reminded Nikki that she could always do better—including her twin, Brie who is lowkey against their relationship. 

(John proposed to Nikki at WrestleMania 33)

Reason was, John made it clear that he doesn’t want marriage nor does he want kids. Two things that Nikki wants in her life the most. But she always believed that perhaps one day she could change John’s mind and marry her. Her dreams came true, on April 4th 2017, John proposed to Nikki with a 6-carat-diamond ring at Wrestlemania Live in front of 1.95 million viewers—at the stadium and at home, worldwide. 

But after a couple of months, Nikki had no choice but to break the engagement after she found out that John was ‘’doing her a favour’’ aka an act of charity. She soon made it clear that she doesn’t need a pity proposal, a pity wedding, a pity husband. ‘’I’m a phenomenal, tremendous woman.’’

And just like Diddy, driven by regrets for letting the perfect woman go, John soon declared his love and wanted to start a family with Nikki on Live TV. Uh, so sudden huh? And Nikki responded with, ‘’That’s crazy’’. She clearly had enough of him and moved on with her former partner from DWTS, Artem. And just like CiCi and Cassie, she is now counting the days for the arrival of their baby boy, engaged and happily barefooted at home. This proves that no matter how rich you are (John Cena net worth is $55million), if you don’t appreciate your woman, believe me, another one will! 

4. Jeannie Mai and Young Jeezy 

Jeannie Mai is happily in love with her rapper boyfriend Jeezy, but it wasn’t that long ago that she was going through a painful divorce with her husband of 10 years, Freddy Harteis. “To this day, I mean it honestly, he’s the best man I know. I married him because he’s like my dad,” she explained. “He’s very loyal, he’s very compassionate, so funny, an awesome guy and in our 13 years of being together, there was never any lies, no betrayal, no cheating, nothing.”

At first, the divorce happened allegedly because of Jeannie’s decision to not have children. “Before we got married, I was very clear about the fact that I probably would not have kids, just because I’ve never felt that.’’ But then.. Things get a lil’ bit too suspicious. During their divorce proceedings, her estranged husband announced that he is expecting a daughter with another woman. Fans started digging up and later found out that Freddy had begun a relationship with another woman while he and Jeannie were still together. 

She later opened up more about Freddy allegedly requesting money from her during their split. She also admitted that she never followed her gut throughout their relationship and should have ended things sooner. 

After she met her new boo—now fiancee—Jeezy, she started to realize how she should have never settled for less! And how she feels ‘’equal’’ to her new partner in comparison to her old relationship. “My own standards were low,” she said of her first marriage. “We can go into a whole counseling session on why I only gave myself the bare minimum.” Now look at her. More glowing than ever. Never lower your standards, ladies
