Adonis – Growing Up Hip Hop, Kristinia DeBarge

Kristinia DeBarge has an interesting relationship with her producer, Adonis Shropshire.  In episode 5 of Growing Up Hip Hop‘s third season, “Mo Money Mo Problems” Kristinia meets with Sandra “Pepa” Denton.  They discuss Pepa’s book but Pepa really wants to talk to her about Adonis.  Pepa’s daughter, Egypt told her about Kristinia’s relationship with Adonis.

Pepa is a veteran in the music industry so Kristinia should listen to her advice.  Pepa asks Kristinia about her relationship with Adonis and Kristinia tells her that she has known the producer since she was 19.  Pepa asks about Adonis’ wife and finds it weird that Kristinia doesn’t have a relationship with Adonis’ wife.
