“There was no other person that I could possibly think of than him — that’s number one.”
She continued: “Number two, I was listening to an interview with Shaunie O’Neal and Evelyn Lozada from Basketball Wives, and the guy asked them, ‘If you guys got locked up in jail and you had one call, who would you call to get you out?’ And both of them said their ex-husbands and I was like … Jamal!
“There’s nobody but Jamal to get me out of jail because I know he will die to protect me and to take care of me and to make sure that I’m good.”
