Roman took to his social media accounts to reveal details of his wife’s cheating. The guy with whom she cheated happens to be a mutual friend of them both. Atwood revealed his occupation to be a producer.
The public shredding included Roman calling Shanna a bitch on Twitter which came after Shanna allegedly went to court seeking an order to stop Roman from using their son Noah on his vlogs. Ultimately, Roman won custody of the boy.
