Don’t let anyone spoil your vibes 🏡 #familyfirst❤️ #Bellos4ever #chinesswhispers #devilisaliar,” he wrote.

The music veteran’s post came hours after it was reported that he had moved out of his home following issues with his wife.

His son, Benito hinted about the rumours being true after he commented on a Tiktok post that reported about the crisis in Bellos home.

According to the young man, the actress is not who many people believe she is.
