Jah Cure and Kamila McDonald, who share a 5-year-old daughter together, Kailani Belle Alcock, have finalized their divorce three months ago.
The celebrity fitness trainer and coach has opened up about her divorce from the Reggae singer, whose real name is Siccature Alcock.
The divorce, which took two years, has been an emotional roller coaster for the Jamaican media personality, Hype Life Magazine has learned.
She broke her silence on her very public break-up with her husband, referring to her experience as “a roller coaster of emotions.”
Kamila explained that the divorce was “difficult” and that “she has come through the storm a completely new person.”
“It’s been difficult, a roller coaster of emotions, but it’s been a transition and it has taught me many lessons. At the end of the day, you don’t plan for these things,” Kamila McDonald revealed in an interview with Outlook.
“You don’t want them to happen, but life happens. That’s what’s so beautiful about life. You have to embrace it – the ups and the downs, the ins and the outs – because really, it’s in your deepest, darkest moments where you come to light; where light is brought in,” she added.
Kamila, who married Jah Cure six years ago, explained that she grew up around love and thought her story would turn out much differently from those she had hoped to emulate such as her parents, who have been married for 34 years.
“Nobody wants to get divorced; nobody plans to get divorced,” Kamila said.
“I grew up around so much love. My parents have been married for 34 years this year. All my aunts and uncles. I grew up seeing functional marriages and so I went into my marriage with the intention of it being long-lasting,” she said.
However, she said her experiences have made her stronger.
“I am at a place of surrender, and at a place of peace. It took a really long time for me to get to this place,” she expressed.
“In life, anything that costs you your peace is expensive and it’s a little bit too expensive, seeing that I brought my most precious gift into this world (my daughter). She is who we are focusing on now.
Her happiness is all that matters, and despite what happened, and our current reality, we are going to continue to fight for her happiness. So, in one word, I feel at peace,” she said.
“You learn about yourself; you learn about the things that you value, the things that are important to you that you didn’t even realize until you go through it,” she added.
