Actor Tia Mowry has had enough of fans giving her dating advice after her recent split from her ex-husband, actor Cory Hardrict.
The pair first met while working together on the film Hollywood Horror and were married for 14 years, after six years of dating.
Last October, they announced their separation, citing irreconcilable differences.
Since finalizing their divorce in April 2023, Mowry opened up about the challenges of getting back into the dating scene in her 40s.
The star of the 90s sitcom Sister, Sister told YouTube star Chris GQ Perry in an interview:
“It is very tough and exhausting."
“My last relationship when I was dating this person … it was beautiful. It was amazing. It was wonderful. There was courting that was involved."
When fans online thought they knew what was best for her regarding her "complicated" dating life and suggested she fix her marriage, Mowry clapped back.
On Saturday, Oct. 7, the 45-year-old actor wrote onX (formerly Twitter):
"Just because the dating life is complicated. Doesn't mean I'm going to go back to something that no longer served me."
"That's like saying if I don't book an audition our a part right away I'm going to give up on my dreams as an actor."
She concluded with:
"Please just stop. I ain't that weak. Please move on because I have. Thank you NEXT."
A few hours later, an X user gave their unsolicited take on Mowry's reaction, writing:
“This is an emotional response. Stay grounded love.”
Mowry set the record straight about her situation.
“No boo boo. This is MY response to stop narratives being said about me. Like YOU."
"Don’t speak on my behalf thank you. You are NOT me. So just stop please.”
Some people didn't get the hint.
One wrote, "Someone is feeling hurt over they ex today huh? Ole grumpy a**," to which Mowry hit back with:
“Nah happy as a camper. Thanks for trying to speak for me though.”
Fortunately, there were plenty of fans who had her back.
At the end of the day, she settled the score once and for all.
“I’m no longer allowing the lies and BLOGS creating false information," she wrote, adding:
"I create the narrative NOT you for click bait.”
“If you don’t hear it from me. It’s all LIES.”
Mowry and Hardrict share two children together, 12-year-old Cree Hardrict and 5-year-old Cairo Hardrict.
The former couple appears to maintain a strong co-parenting relationship together, as seen from a post in which they spent the holidays together with their kids.
Since her divorce, Mowry has been open about her post-marriage life, with reflective posts that focus on self-love and personal growth.
In the interview with Chris GQ Perry, Mowry shared advice for women who may be struggling to leave toxic relationships.
“What I would say to her is, No. 1, um, focus on self-love. Meaning really look deep into yourself and really get to know yourself, understand yourself.”
“A lot of that happens in some sort of isolation. Whether that is the meditation, the journaling. Um, and just spending time with yourself.”
