Since their split in 2015, Erica Mena and Bow Wow have sent several shots at each other on social media, and now the former "Love & Hip-Hop" star is telling people exactly how she feels about him. In an interview with VladTV, Mena said although she tries to ignore her ex's posts, she still feels sorry for him at times. "Since leaving that situation, it doesn't really get attention from me or a reaction" said the 28-year-old. "I'll hear or see under my hashtag how he's re-posting a list of women he's been with and bragging about it ... and I just feel sorry … It's annoying to wake up one day to see pictures of me that he posts on his Facebook to try and make you guys believe that we're still together. I'm always thrown off by him," added Mena.
