The upcoming tell-all book, Tia's Diary: Deeper Than Rap, from the mother of Rick Ross' son, has hit the Internet with its prologue that introduces fans to her relationship with the Miami rapper.
In the excerpt, Tia Kemp describes the problems she's had collecting child support from Ross.
"It wasn't just the child support case that was getting me down," it reads. "It was all of it. How he treated me like he was better than me and smarter than me during our whole relationship, how when I dated him it was almost like I dated his momma because she was so involved in his life, how his pathetic first baby's mama did everything she could to disrespect me every step of the way and he did nothing, how he verbally and physically abused me, how I left my marriage to be with him. This was the last straw." (Deeper Than Rap Book)
She has also voiced her reasons for going through with a tell-all book.
"The reason I felt that it would be interesting to write a book is because I have had a very big struggle in my life," Tia said in an interview. "I grew up without a father, my mom was a single parent and it was very hard for her to raise six kids on her own. Being the oldest, I experienced a lot of things growing up, a lot of challenges in life that I went through. I got married young, I had two kids and after that I ended up getting in a another relationship...When I met Ross he wasn't a celebrity. There are a lot of things that I experienced in my life before I met Ross that was overwhelming or outrageous or just crazy. And there are a lot of things that we went through that I thought would be very interesting for people out in the world to hear." (XXL Mag)
The book will be available at Amazon.
Published by Tru Life Publishing, the 288 page text will come out May 20 for a standard price of $14.95. Tia's Diary: Deeper Than Rap: Clarity, Truth, & Exposure will be available via paperback. Pre-order options are currently available. (Amazon)
