She admitted that her ‘main thought’ was her daughter, and felt that being happy co-parenting was the best way forward, adding that she felt as though she was setting them all free.

Describing how they co-parent Amirah, Amelle said after four days of Marcio staying with them during lockdown, it was ‘all she could take.’

After worrying they’d slip back into a ‘marriage/friendship’ situation, they now live apart in what she described as a situation similar to that of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.’

Amelle explained how the ‘uncertainty and loneliness’ enforced by the lockdown, after her mother’s passing and the breakdown of her relationship, meant that she felt somewhat stripped of comfort and support.  

Luckily, a couple of months ago, the singer began to care for herself once again: Doing her nails and responding to friends’ messages.  

Amelle isn’t putting too much focus on getting into another romantic relationship, describing the prospect of dating as ‘exhausting.’ 

Looking to the future, the star revealed that she would be open to having another child, and has always wanted to adopt.
