As seen in a YouTube video of the interview, Lil Mo refused to mention her ex's name because, according to her, she did not want to give him a "shout out" or any form of power over her. She said:

The "Superwoman Pt II" singer then went on to cite several instances when she and Dragan had a fallout. When asked if he ever punched her, Lil Mo replied in the affirmative with the exception that Karl never hit her in the face.

MADAME NOIRE shares that the last straw of Mo's tempestuous marriage occurred when Karl spat on her.

Lil Mo recalled that the incident happened while her kids were at school, and while her ex-hubby tried to overpower her during the altercation, she stood her ground.

She added that while she tried contacting someone for help, Karl smashed her phone on the wall.

About her opioid addiction, Lil Mo explained that although the symptoms of being an addict weren't physically obvious, she was not fine on the inside. In her words:

"I was a functioning addict because I could wake up and take a pill. But I got all my teeth. I don't look like I take pills. I didn't have the gray skin. I was still able to perform, but my soul? I was a dead woman walking."
