Amber Rose on Confronting Kanye West Over Referencing Her Son: 'You Better Not Come for Sebastian - I Will Protect Him'

The soon-to-be VH1 talk show host opens up about the Twitter war with her ex and why she took a stand

Amber Rose will tell you, it’s only natural for a MUVA to protect her young.

So it was in January when Rose’s toddler son Sebastian was brought up during a Twitter war between her exes Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa.

“You let a stripper trap you,” West tweeted at Rose’s ex-husband Khalifa, referencing her one-time occupation. He continued, “I know you mad ever time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years.”

It’s that last bit that caused Rose to jump into the fray in memorable fashion, declaring Sebastian off limits, while seemingly revealing West’s secret sexual proclivities.

During an at-home interview with PEOPLE in this week’s issue, Rose says that people now know, “You better not come for Sebastian. Not my baby. I will protect him.”

Though she and West are still not on good terms, the soon-to-be VH1 talk show host is focusing on her many projects, including her MUVA clothing line and the recent launch of her MUVA Mojis, and letting go of the past.

“It’s all a learning experience,” she says when asked about her tumultuous social media history. “I don’t put my personal business or my feelings out there. I did before, but I don’t now because I learned from that.”

These days she’s all about supporting other women — her second SlutWalk is planned for later this year — and staying positive.

“I just feel like taking the high road,” she says. “Putting positivity out there makes you feel better. Instead of being heartless and just trying to argue with people.”
