What Did Amber Rose Say About Alexander ‘AE’ Edwards?
Amber and AE were in a relationship from October 2018 until August 2021, when the How to Be a Bad Bitch author wrote a scathing statement via her Instagram Stories calling out AE for their split.
“I’m tired of getting cheated on and being embarrassed behind the scenes,” Amber wrote that month. “All 12 of [you] bums (the ones that I know of there’s probably more) can have him. Y’all very much knew he was in a relationship with a baby, and y’all decided to f—k him anyways. I saw all the texts and DMs.”
She continued, “Y’all were well aware, but y’all don’t owe me any loyalty. So, it’s whatever. I can’t be the only one fighting for my family anymore. I’ve been so loyal and transparent, but I haven’t gotten the same energy in return. As for him … the lack of loyalty and the disrespect is ridiculous. I’m done.”

Despite Amber’s noticeable frustration at the situation, AE insisted he didn’t hold any grudge against her for publicly calling him out.
“And she’s just had enough, obviously,” he added. “I love her, though. That’s, like, my best friend, the mother of my son.”
