During a 2015 interview with RollingOut, Malaysia said, "After divorce, it's not about you. It's about the kids. For me, I just learned to make sure my kids are whole."

"Co-parenting is the most important thing because, first off, you broke a home, and kids realize it, especially when they're of age.

"Like my kids, say for my 9-year-old, all he remembers is mom and dad together. Then once you get into school, you see other kids and they have their mom and their dad," she added

"You want to make sure they don't feel like they're missing anything. As of right now, my ex is actually here with us now."
