4th Time At Love, Erykah Badu Seems Hopelessly In Love Again

Posted On : April 15, 2017


Well you should already know that Erykah Badu isn’t one to shy away from love…even if it’s the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th time around.

4th Time Around:

On today, Ms. Badu shared an Instagram post of her BAE, Mr. Carl Jones.

Badu even made fun of the fact that this would be her “forf” time at love! It’s funny because if this story was a Mary J. Blidge story, we would be like, “Oh no…be careful Mary”, or “Don’t do it Mary”…because Mary will be heartbroken with an album full of painful love stories. But that’s not the same for Erykah.

She seems to bounce back pretty strong after each of her love affairs. In fact, the men are know to resurface from the relationship, stronger and better! Wow…that’s that Badu effect.

The Badu Effect:fb-andre-and-erykah

Erykah and Andre 3000 met one time back in 1995 at a New York City nightclub. During that time Andre ditched the Atlanta Braves jerseys and baggy jeans, Andre found peace in more eclectic fashion choices and experimenting with his musical sound. It’s also rumored that his breakup with Erykah inspired him to record Outkast’s smash record “Ms. Jackson.”

See…that’s that Badu effect.

So Who’s This Guy?:

If you didn’t know, Carl Jones is a writer and producer best known for his work on The Boondocks and Black Dynamite.

Badu shared that she had met Jones while working on the animated series, Black Dynamite.

“He’s my production partner,” she said. “We have a company together. We write for different things. We bounce ideas off each other.”

The two have shared hints about their relationship with subtle flirting, not to mention Jones’ Instagram solely features of photo of the couple from March.
