The first time Tamia became a recognizable name to sports fans is when she sang "O Canada" at the 2009 National Basketball Association All-Star Game in Phoenix.A native of Windsor, Ontario, Tamia was known throughout basketball circles and the sports world as the wife of seven-time NBA All-Star Grant Hill, who at the time was playing alongside Phoenix Suns legend, and another Canadian, in Steve Nash.In order for a relationship to be healthy, partners must trust that when they set boundaries and are intimate with each other, both people will uphold those boundaries and neither will attempt to hurt the other partner.Making threats like this is a violation of that trust.If your partner makes threats like this, they’re putting you in a really tough spot.
Falling in love with you, was the best thing that ever happened to me, but somehow, it became the worst. Unfortunately that doesn’t make dealing with threats like this any easier.So what can you do if your partner is blackmailing you and trying to get you to do something you don’t want to do?Threats are not a sign of love or care, but of manipulation and control.
You never deserve to be threatened, no matter what, and you are never responsible for your partner’s choice to be abusive.
Blackmailing is a form of emotional abuse and, like all abuse, is about power and control.
