I rarely speak on my personal issues and i usually express my pain the through music but today I will share a little with you last month my wife and I lost a daughter and my son lost a sister . My baby girl took her life and there are no words to describe the day to day pain we have to endure and maintain through but in dealing with pain you find yourself dealing with the creator and asking questions and going through emotions most would not understand. So I'm taking this time out to express a few things to y'all because life is short and we are not promised tomorrow. I like to deal with simple math I know I am 180- 180+ but im trying my best to live on the positive side of things . I have truly tried to live up to the code of being a gentleman and gangster to fullest of my ability. I have been chasing the dollar bill since I was 12 years old I hustled I worked legal jobs and even manage to make my dream of making it as a rapper come true I have popped bottles before it was the thing to do , I have owned beamers, benzos , rovers, trucks etc etc etc I have lived in the ritz ,owned condos , houses traveled a lot of places etc etc etc but I can honestly tell you don't none of that shit add up or equal to love!! I have lost my brother , father , aunt , grandmother in law and too many good friends/ brothers and now my daughter!!!! But the only thing that can be done is to leave it in the creators hands . But I wouldn't be me if I didn't take this time out to say from the most humbled part of my heart and soul to say to yall that the dream most of us chase is not !!I repeat is not !!more valuable than the love you get from your family and friends it may seem like it is but it ain't they print money and make material shit everyday but once you used a love one that's it the spirit is with you but you will miss the physical and Won't be able to speak to them how you want to until you get home to the other side. So I just want to tell yall keep it family 1st and don't get lost and lose your focus the fam is way more important than anything else …. We lost a daughter but gained an angel . Love is love ..ghost

One month after his daughter’s death, Styles P posted a message to Instagram about losing his daughter. He wrote, “last month my wife and I lost a daughter and my son lost a sister. My baby girl took her life and there are no words to describe the [day-to-day] pain we have to endure and maintain through but in dealing with pain you find yourself dealing with the creator and asking questions and going through emotions most would not understand.”

In a 2018 docuseries, Adjua told OWN’s Black Love, ”I’ve always… heard from people the loss of a child can really be a testament to the marriage, and most couples don’t always make it. And I’d be like, ‘Why? I would think it would bring them closer,'” Adjua, who also has a son with Styles, admitted. “And I can actually see that now… We’ve literally been forced to grow from that experience.”

Five years later, the couple continues to try to process their grief. This is one of the reasons why they both decided to join the cast on Marriage Boot Camp. “After you suffer a major loss, frustration levels get higher than they used to be,” Styles said on the Feb. 6 premiere. “Things become harder to deal with.”

Styles P and his wife Adjua Styles shared an enlightening take on coping with their daughter’s death in an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club on August 16, 2017. “As much as you think that they’re telling you everything, you don’t know everything,” Adjua said when she was asked if she knew that their daughter battled depression.

Tai Styles committed suicide in 2015, and her parents said there were no immediate signs that she would take her own life. “We were extremely close,” she continued. “I had her on the brink of 19 [years old]. When she committed suicide she was living on her own, and I feel within my heart that if I was around…[I would’ve] been her safe haven.”

Adjua said their daughter was going through a breakup at the time, which may have contributed to the tragic decision. “She felt very alone,” she said. “She was going through a break up at that time with her girlfriend. It was a culmination of all of these emotions at that time. It wasn’t thought out obviously.”

3. Adjua Styles Wrote the Book “The Ethereal Hike” as a Tribute to Her Daughter’s Life

Adjua Styles wrote a book entitled “The Ethereal Hike: How To Discern The Privilege of Loss Through the Power of Love.” The book is about the death of her daughter and how spirituality guides her to healing. Her book helps others move through their own pain and trauma, to go from surviving to thriving.

The book was released on Amazon in January 2020. On The Breakfast Club in January 2020, Adjua and Styles P discussed Adjua’s book, which describes the time of her daughter’s death and how she and her daughter used to love to hike, and the connection between the process of hiking to get to a better place in life.

Adjua and Styles P have a son together and Adjua told the radio show that she and Styles raise their son with the same unconditional love. Adjua reveals that her daughter was in therapy because of hormonal issues and acting out in school. Adjua made the decision to put her in therapy because she said she did not have the patience to deal with her daughter’s behavior. Her daughter’s therapy took place when she was young and Adjua says that her daughter was too young at the time to take it seriously.

4. Tai Styles Was Bisexual & Coping With A Breakup

In 2017, Styles P and Adjua appeared on The Breakfast Club to talk about their daughter’s suicide. Adjua says that she was trying to be an adult, leaving home and living on her own. She was bisexual and was going through a breakup at that time with her girlfriend. Adjua says it wasn’t planned, but was something that wasn’t thought out.

Styles P told The Breakfast Club that if he knew that she was depressed, she’d be home with him but that she never mentioned her depression. He said that it’s hard to say what mental health is when he himself has felt homicidal at times when people havre pushed him too far in life. He continued that it’s hard to describe mental health and it’s not completely accurate to say that suicide always stems from depression, but is sometimes a hair trigger reaction, just like a feeling of homicidal rage, he told the show’s hosts.

In terms of her being bisexual, Tai’s parents didn’t think of it as intimidating or threatening because it was two females. Adjua told the show’s hosts that she didn’t think it was that serious because she thought there was more sensitivity in a same sex situation. She continued that she learned that it was in actuality, two partners with two significant roles. Adjua said, “I don’t understand that type of lifestyle so I didn’t take it seriously. It seems to me that homosexuality has become a trend, and I didn’t want her to follow that trend. When she came to me and told me that she was bisexual, she said, ‘I just love people that love me.’ With that, it was very easy to understand.”

In 2018, Styles P appeared on Hot 97 Ebro in the Morning to promote his album G. Host. He talked about his relationship with Adjua and how she was in his life from the beginning, before his success. He said the key to the success of their marriage is understanding that every day is tough and that mourning is different for everybody.
