In Touch (USA) - - Reallife -

VI­TAL STATS:

Emily and best pal Bri (both are Lit­tle Women: At­lanta alums) are two halves of a pop­u­lar dance duo called “The Cheeks” — Emily is known as “right cheek.”

OVER­COM­ING TRAGEDY:

The 4-foot-1 mom of Eva, 5, re­cently lost her 3-mon­thold son, JJ, due to health com­pli­ca­tions. (Dad is her on/off, av­er­age-size boyfriend Lon­tel.) “I’m still cop­ing with the loss,” she tells In Touch.

NEW PATH:

She wants to take a break from per­form­ing. “I’ve been one of the best dancers on the scene,” ex­plains Emily, “and I made a lot of money, but now I just want to fo­cus on my daugh­ter.”
