The alleged cheating began almost a year ago, after Fat Joe, born Joseph Antonio Cartagena, dropped the hefty pounds that garnered his name. According to a source close to the couple, the weight loss supposedly emboldened the renewed MC to begin having an affair with a 26-year-old woman from Dubai.
The YBF reports:
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.
Lorena reportedly found out about the affair through text messages and pictures that were sent to her by a close friend.
Fat Joe began his career in 1993, after releasing his debut album, “Represent.” While the South Bronx-born rapper would make five more albums, his 2004 collaboration with Terror Squad member Remy Ma for “Lean Back” would be his most popular hit.
There’s no word yet as to when official divorce papers will be filed.
