When I wanna buy that new car, she says “RELAX, LETS BUILD SOMETHING WITH SHELDON”. ” Most of the trolling came from the notion that he was being controlled by his wife.
Just days prior to his death, on Valentine’s day, Feb 14, he innocently shared a video on Instagram of himself and his wife Bianca dancing o his latest song, Sondela.

I wish ppl would leave this woman alone. I’ve only met her a few times, away from industry events luckily & from what I’ve seen, she doesn’t like the public eye & is very camera shy. Such a sweet person who loves her privacy https://t.co/09HNFTsr6p
