Bow Wow has been slammed on social media after he shared his plan to take Omarion to a strip club to help him get over Apryl Jones.
The 'Ice Box' singer announced on Monday (11.07.16) he has split from his long-term girlfriend - with whom he has son Megaa, 23 months, and daughter A'mei, four months - and his pal wanted to celebrate his "freedom" with a guys' night out.
Referring to the popular Ace of Diamonds gentleman's club, he wrote on Instagram: "Bro you got your freedom! We can hang again!!! lets go take a bag to AOD tonight
"Theres plenty of ig thots and vlive and AOD dancers bro in the world that will be happy to cheer you up during this time! Matter of fact, ima throw you a couple lobs

After Bow Wow - whose real name is Shad Moss - was slammed on social media for his comments, he hit out at "nagging" women and insisted he wasn't doing anything different as to when ladies rally around their female pals after a break-up.
He posted: "So since my female followers have a lot to say to me this am.
"Why is it yall can do this when your bestie break up and why cant the fellas encourage they homies the same way yall do?
"A trip to the gentlemen's club wont save your boy life but just to get him out to talk and relax a little theres no crime in that. Yall women tooo uptight nowadays nagging is at an all time high textn us getting mad over what we post what pictures we like. Ease up on us ladies.(sic)"
While he may have been slammed on social media, Apryl herself insisted she wasn't upset by her estranged partner's friend.
She told E! News: "Omari and I have decided to part our own ways. We are doing what's best for our children.
"As far as Bow Wow, his friend is Omari. Whatever he feels like he needs do or say for media purposes doesn't pertain to me. I have two beautiful children that are my main focus."
While a reason hasn't been given for why the 'Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood' stars have gone their separate ways, an insider has claimed they "started to fade" out of love, and admitted the constant travelling undertaken by Omarion - whose real name is Omari Ishmael Grandberry - had taken its toll.
A source said: "This has been something they have been trying to work and build stronger for a while now. The traveling that Omarion had to do started to put a toll on Apryl. She is a great mother, and he will support her and his family."
