The latest gossip to rock their peaceful marriage happened in 2021 when a video was seen of Royalty leaving the family house while accusing CJ So Cool of being toxic. Royalty went further to allege that CJ had been cheating on her for the past couple of months.
What made the drama interesting was that CJ could also be seen crying on his Instagram Live, where he was begging his wife for forgiveness. Fans of the couple were very shocked by the entire display, but it was later revealed that the whole video was staged, as they were only pranking their fans.
