Regarding the experience, Mimi recalled to Women in Business: “Although I loved Coolio with all my heart I was not happy with the state of our relationship at that time.
“We’ve had our challenges over the last couple of years just like any other relationship.
“We have eleven kids between the two of us, two grandkids and two more on the way that keeps our home life exciting.”
