Why Peso Pluma and Anitta’s kiss made headlines?

Nicki Nicole and Peso Pluma called it quits in February after the Mexican star was filmed holding hands with another woman in Las Vegas, Nevada. During a cover interview with Billboard Español, the Argentinean artist spoke about her healing process. “The truth is that I felt that everything was so public that I couldn’t have done it any other way. People already knew it, and it was uncontrollable,” Nicki said.

She added, “What has healed me the most these days are the people, my fans. I received many messages from women congratulating me on the message I sent,” referring to what she wrote on her social media.

“Respect is a necessary part of love. What is loved, is respected. What is respected, is cared for. When you are not cared for and when there is no respect… I will not stay there. I’m leaving,” she shared at the time.
