Pepa was concerned with fellow hip hop star Anthony “Treach” Criss for seven years. The couple had a daughter, Egypt, in 1998, and tied the knot at a Kansas Metropolis tattoo parlor in 1999. Pepa and Treach divorced in 2001, with Pepa later claiming that Treach bodily abused her. Pepa later penned the memoir Let’s Talk About Pep detailing the second Treach advised her he wished to separate. “He grabbed my ring… and threw it at me with all his may… it hit me proper in the course of my brow,” Pepa wrote in 2008. “He picked me up by my throat, choking me and he slammed me into the footboard.”
Treach claimed on the radio present The Breakfast Club that he didn’t abuse Pepa, and she or he really left him for a lady. Treach summed up their relationship as a “love-hate,” and Pepa later attended Treach’s marriage ceremony in 2019.
There is a purpose why their divorce will not take middle stage within the Salt-N-Pepa Lifetime biopic. “Within the film, I did not simply need to give attention to the destructive issues between us,” Pepa advised The New York Post. “I wished to be honest to [Treach] and present that regardless of the unhealthy, he was a great man, too.” Evidently the problems are actually water beneath the bridge for these tumultuous exes.
