When Demi notices that her relationship with Ronell, as the rapper is really called, is deteriorating, she is faced with a difficult choice. She finds it difficult to put an end to it. “In the past, I have sometimes stayed in a relationship for too long because it was easier to stay than to leave. When there is a child involved, it becomes even more complicated. It took a lot of strength to make that decision, But I knew I had to do it.”
As a child, the daughter of former professional footballer Ronald de Boer experienced what it is like to have parents who ‘are still together but have not been happy for years’. “I don’t wish that feeling on Rémi. (…) I consider it my responsibility to break that circle, so that my daughter does not have to experience the same thing as me.”
Rémi was born on November 1, 2021. Ronnie also has a daughter named Nori, from a previous relationship. After all, Demi thinks her daughter’s happiness is the most important thing. “The moment I really realized that I was no longer happy in my relationship, I knew one thing for sure: I don’t want to become a grumpy, dissatisfied mother to my daughter. And as soon as I don’t feel good about myself, it has repercussions.” on her and that cannot be the intention.”
Ronnie still plays an important role in the lives of the two women. Demi speaks to him every day and Rémi stays with her father every Sunday. “Rémi is really a daddy’s girl. Their bond is incredibly strong, which is beautiful and sad to see at the same time. Rémi feels the love and security of her father, she knows that he will always be there for her and that makes me proud. On the other hand, it saddens me that she doesn’t wake up to see him every day; I would have liked to give her two parents who super happily in love are. But yeah…”
It is not necessarily completely over between Demi and the rapper. She explains that their bond has remained “unchanged” after the breakup. “We still love each other very much, but it’s just… complex. We’ve never said out loud that we’re throwing in the towel completely, so in theory it’s not out of the question that we’ll ever get back together, but right now We are both very happy with how things are going.” At the moment she mainly wants to focus on the present. “I now try to live more in the moment and look at what works now. We will see about the rest.”
