EXCLUSIVE: Fat Joe's Wife Lorena Cartagena SPLITS, Sources Say It's Because HE CHEATED!

It's a WRAP for Fat Joe and wife, Lorena (Rios) Cartagena!   A source tells TheYBF.com that Lorena is splitting, and cheating is the cause of the breakup.

 

Exclusive details inside...

The hip-hop couple has been together for 17 years.  But it's all coming to an end, a close friend of Lorena tells TheYBF.com. 

Lorena was down with Terror Squad head honcho Fat Joe, real name Joseph Antonio Cartagena, before his recent mega weight loss, but apparently he got a little too confident and stepped out on his wife one too many times.

We're told Joe has allegedly been having a year long affair with a 26 year old woman from Dubai, who goes by the uber original name "Ms. Dubai."  She resides in Miami--where Joe, Lorena, and their 5-year-old daughter live as well.  And Joe has supposedly flown her to several places with him and even brought her out in public to parties and such.

But it sounds like the soon-to-be-ex-Mrs. Cartagena is handling the stressful situation well.  A friend tells us:

Happy to say, Lorena is fine and well at this point and as stressful as the situation has been for her, she has a lot of peace with just raising her daughter.

So how did Lorena find out about Ms. Dubai?  Through text messages, of course.  We're told the alleged pics of Joe and his mistress were sent to Lorena’s phone from a very close friend close to the Terror Squad crew.


Joe & Lorena in happier times
 

The couple spent New Year's Eve together at a party in Miami.  But Lorena flew solo to a party (pictured at above) for Stephon Marbury's wife, Tasha, just last week. 

We've also learned that "Love & Hip Hop" executive producer, Mona Scott Young, has reached out several times to Lorena asking her to appear on the show.  But she has continuously declined.

Of course, A rapper who rap

Of course, A rapper who rap doesn't mean=education and common life skills. Means lack thereof money so there was no other source and what comes along with it. Go back to school people.

Dumbass, he has to start

Dumbass, he has to start over. Lose more weight, deal with a new women and her ways. Then after Lorena takes her share, he has to make his hustle. LOL

Shes not gonna get anything

Shes not gonna get anything because they ARE NOT legally married. So technically they're just breaking up. And they only have one child together. The other children are from different girls. They cheat on each other on the regular. I guess this time he's getting more serious with this Ms. Dubai chick. Lorena will be with the next dude in no time because she has never worked and doesn't have an education. Oh well for her..........

When you are with a

When you are with a Rapper,you Already know he will Cheat it is part of the Lifestyle Bitches/Hoes etc. Joe has been Cheating for Years, if it was just Pussy Lorena would Not mind as Much,but Joe Probably trickin off $$$ on that Dubai Hoe and wining and dining her ,that when it becomes a Problem.FYI men I'm Not saying Cheating is OK,but women can get over you just hitting a Chick No Strings Attached ,but when you start Spending Time and Money on a Trick ,that is when it becomes a Problem!

Lorena has been with Fat Joe

Lorena has been with Fat Joe for nearly 20 yrs -- before he made any money. Fat Joe was much more humble in the beginning of his career. If not for him being PR, I don't think he would've sold records. "Watch The Sound" is a sick record, but not because of his wack verse. Grand Puba slayed that track. That's what enabled Joe to gain recognition -- well, that and "You gotta flow, Joe." He didn't start rapping decent until 4 or 5 years ago. Lorena was supposed to be his queen. She has been there through thick and thin. She is beautiful, classy and she plays her position as his wife and mother of his child. I am astonished at the fact that Joe would step out on her. I have no idea what happens to people after being married/together for so many years, but it is disheartening to see unions that were once solid fall to pieces. Prayers for Lorena, Joe and their child. I sincerely hope and pray they can salvage their relationship.

You Dr. Phil bitches kill me.

You Dr. Phil bitches kill me. Most of you have never been married or probably had a steady loving relationship. Why should she stay? You think it's the first time she threatened to leave his formerly fat ass? Everyone grows up eventually. What you take one year you won't take the next. He begged and lied to her that he wouldn't do it again, like many do. She has a daughter, and just maybe she doesn't want to her to think that what daddy does to mommy is acceptable. And whatever money she gets it's hers and she's earned it. As if you broke bitches would decline spousal support and child support from a millionaire that you wasted years on? And if you would you're a damn fool.

Joe should be ashamed of

Joe should be ashamed of himself. How does he sleep at night, knowing that he has no morals, no loyalty, to anyone? Not to God, not to his family, and not to the many women that he cheated on his wife with. I don't blame "Ms.Dubai", I blame him fully, for believing that he was larger than life, that all of his infidelities would not be found out. Bad things happen to bad people sometimes, and he is nothing but a morally bankrupt person, who deserves everything bad that happens to him after this. I hope he ends up reading this comment, and feels like the low down, dirty, worthless human being he is. May God have mercy on him, because I hope the world does not.

More like HE CHEATS! There's

More like HE CHEATS! There's a difference. I don't understand how a man could cheat on a woman who's held him down for 17 years, he loses a bit of weight and then loses his mind. Shiiiiiet, Lorena, leave his ass. But I don't wanna see you on Love & Hip Hop! No Miss.

I'm 1000% sure he was

I'm 1000% sure he was cheating on her long before he lost weight, or before they were even married. The difference is that now his check isn't right, or she will get enough of it from the divorce, that now she doesn't have to stay. Anyone who marries a golddigger deserves her. Only a girl after money will put up w/ cheating and abuse from a man, and these men know it. They think they can throw money a woman's way and then act selfishly without considering the woman's feelings. That's why I can't feel like they were taken advantage of when the money gets low and the woman leaves.

I thought Joey was a good

I thought Joey was a good dude. He is raising his niece because his sister died during child birth. If you can't be faithful, at least be careful, discrete. These dudes know better, polyamory may be okay with them but never with us! Lorena stay strong and stay off Love and Flip Flops...

Fat joe is feeling himself. He gets gastric bypass and loses weight. Then all the weigh Joe loses goes straight to his fat head. Lorena stayed with him when he was fat and out of shape and this is the thanks she gets.WOW!!!

I blame the women, if a dude

I blame the women, if a dude is married why would u offer urself to him,such women have no sense of dignity or self worth, i blame the dude too, but if women would just accept the fact that a guy is off the market and move on with their lives then we've made progress, but nope

Child plz, she should have

Child plz, she should have been gone yrs ago. Fat Joe has been jumping off with side chicks for years. I remember Gloria Velez (Aaron Hall's baby mother). Mia Campbell (In the House) & plenty of video hoes. She knew what he was doing. They also have 2 sons & their daughter together. Good luck Lorena.

Thank You! I have a friend

Thank You! I have a friend who used to play pro ball & now works with alot of celebs. He's cool with some of Fat Joe's jump-offs so his cheating ways are not new. They may have gotten worse now that he's slimmed down, but it ain't new. In fact thanks to my friend, I give ALL these so-called-stars the side-eye.

Why does everything boil down

Why does everything boil down to looks, and the physical? This is the same problems that all great empires ran into before us; Egyptian, Babylonian, Greek, and Roman..all things became about the outer person, and the inner self was sacrificed to explore all things physical and those empires eventually fell to a great destruction. It's only a matter of time for us, because humankind has gone so far away from spirit and now worships the flesh and fleshy pursuits. The ego of men will always be their destroyer, and just like those great empires who went that same route by burying the true spirit self to raise up and worship the ego self, and were rewarded with utter destruction, so shall this present age pass away in their worship of flesh, egos, idols, and demigods they have created. The sad part about it is that the ultimate Creator may not give any more chances with incarnations and opportunities to elevate the spirit being to reach up to an equal level as the Creator. The divine Creator may just once and for all destroy completely, flesh and spirit ,and be done with the human experiment altogether. I cannot believe with all the knowledge that has been poured out on us, we are still at the same base level as our ancestors thousands of years ago. Let who have eyes see, and who have ears hear.
