Hip-hop mogul Master P has apologised to his estranged wife, Sonya, for going public with her alleged drug troubles. The Make 'Em Say Uhh! hitmaker, real name Percy Miller, has been opening up about his estranged wife's personal problems ever since she filed for divorce to officially end their 24-year marriage in October (14).
The move sparked a custody battle over the former couple's minor children and prompted Master P to speak out about Sonya's reported struggle with addiction, insisting he would give her whatever she wanted if she got clean.
He said, "I ain't (sic) been with her in seven years, but I love my family (and) that's my kids' mother...
"One thing I wanna say is drugs is really killing a lot of families and I'm not gonna let it destroy my family... We're good... but my whole thing is, she can have it all if she gets herself together; it's about her kids, it's about this family..."
Sonya Miller has denied the accusations, and now Master P admits he was in no position to detail his wife's issues in the media.
Speaking to U.S. talk show host Wendy Williams, he says, "I want to apologise to her, to be honest with you, because I'm not perfect, nobody's perfect but I'm at a good stage in my life right now.
"I don't have a right to say whatever she needs to do. That was just me kind of like, getting back... if somebody says this about you, knowing I been (sic) taking care of somebody for 20-something years, it kind of hurt a little bit. But at the same time, I feel like in my life, it's about my kids, it's about our kids. Whether we never be together, we gotta take care of our kids (sic)."
Master P has also laughed off Sonya's claims that she has been living on welfare payments from the U.S. government, insisting she has always been well taken care of by both him and their rapper/actor son Romeo.
He adds, "I'm just saying, if she's living with Romeo, that mean (sic) she's living a beautiful life. Let's be honest. If our relationship don't (sic) work, she has her son Romeo, who's successful, she will be all right."

Actor Terry Crews' past pornography obsession almost wrecked his marriage, because his guilty secret turned him into a sex addict. The Expendables star grew up in a strict religious home, where his mother and father both struggled with their own addictions, and he began to use pornography as an escape when he was 12 years old.
He tells U.S. TV host Wendy Williams, "We weren't allowed to play sports, we weren't allowed to watch movies...
"It was one of those things that took me and it medicated me and here's the problem, I never told anyone. I didn't tell my wife for years."
Crews reveals his addiction grew and he gambled with his marriage when he was unfaithful to his wife of 25 years, Rebecca.
He adds, "It's one of things where the pornography addiction turned into something else. You can't have something like that in your life without it growing into something else."
Actor Terry Crews has revealed he's partially deaf. The Expendables star has had hearing difficulties since he was a young child and he has become adept at reading lips, so he can communicate with others in loud places.
He tells U.S. TV host Wendy Williams, "It was something I grew up with and what was wild is, I went and saw a doctor and she covered her mouth and started talking and asked me to repeat what she said, and I couldn't and I didn't even know it.
"It's one of the reasons why I'm so loud."
New York jeweller Mr. Flawless has dismissed reports suggesting Jay Z and his sister-in-law Solange were shopping at his store days after video footage of them allegedly fighting in an elevator surfaced. Beyonce's husband and sister hit headlines on Monday (12May14) when surveillance video footage from inside an elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York City appeared to show Solange hitting and kicking the 99 Problems hitmaker as they left a Met Gala afterparty on 5 May (14).
On Tuesday (13May14), editors at TMZ.com reported the rapper and his sister-in-law had been spotted perusing high-end jewellery at Mr. Flawless, but the jeweller has now spoken to U.S. talk show host Wendy Williams to clear up the rumours.
She says, "We call Mr. Flawless and he says, 'No, Solange and Jay Z were not here checking out jewellery'..."
The parties have not spoken out about the incident, but on Tuesday Solange reportedly deleted photos of herself with sister Beyonce from her Instagram.com account, while the Crazy in Love hitmaker moved to end reports of a feud on Wednesday (14May14) by posting four candid snaps of the sisters having fun in the past.
Meanwhile, Beyonce and Jay Z put on a united front on Monday night by sitting courtside at a basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat in New York.
Veteran actress Valerie Bertinelli has been forced to put her exercise regime on hold after breaking her foot earlier this year (14). The Hot In Cleveland star, 53, has struggled with weight issues for years and previously regained her figure by adopting a strict work out plan and relying on the help of nutritionists at diet firm Jenny Craig, for which she served as a spokesmodel.
However, Bertinelli admits she has been letting herself go a little in recent months as she waits for her foot to fully heal.
She tells U.S. talk show host Wendy Williams, "I broke my foot at the beginning of the year so it's been a little hard for me to work out, so you feel the weight creeping back on and there's not much you can do about it except bring your portion sizes way down, and I'm not about to do that! So I just need to get moving more, but I feel good... I just want this foot to get better already."
R&B star Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle has confessed to undergoing cosmetic treatment to boost her butt. The former Xscape singer/songwriter, who is married to rapper T.I., has become known for showing off her curves in photos on Instagram.com, and now she has revealed her figure isn't all natural.
She made the confession during an appearance on America's The Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday (25Mar14) when she was asked if she had "a natural booty or a bought booty", to which she replied, "It's a little both."
She stopped short of revealing exactly what she'd had done to her backside, but Cottle did state that she had previously undergone surgery to improve the look of her breasts too, adding, "They're bought. I've always had a lot of boobs (sic), but after three babies, they started to sag."
But there is one part of her body the 38 year old has decided against having work on - her nose.
She said, "I thought about it but it's my dad nose so I just feel like, you know, (I don't want to touch it)."
Cottle's father, Charles Pope, died last year (13).
