Soon after, he closed off various set of comments by writing, “I never once in my life said she wasn’t my baby. I hope this does whatever it was supposed to do for you.” A couple of hours later, Tyler spilled the beans on why she decided to go public with the video in a lengthy statement.

She went on to say, “I tried to meet the girl and everything and she ignored me when i tried. what I’m upset about is that he made more time to spend with this woman than he’s spent with Apollo her whole life and has been actively ignoring me when I’m trying to figure things out for our child. Those clips of him and her together are all I have in general cause he barely sees her.”
After the news broke out on social media, tweets from Hurd began popping up on the internet. In a tweet from December, she said, “This year has been really challenging for me also so very beautiful so i’m beyond grateful for it all to say the least.”
