Their relationship was spoken about in length during his TV One episode of Unsung. "They were combustible – both of them. You're talking about dynamite and super dynamite. You knew something was always going to explode," Williams' former manager explained.

Dash became pregnant with the former pair's first child, which Williams said only complicated things further. "That was a very painful thing, again to make the decision to try and have a kid to rectify a relationship that was over," Williams said.

Dash admitted in a 2016 interview with PEOPLE Magazine that she considered terminating the pregnancy, but that she ultimately decided to go through with having their son. Williams and Dash's son Austin was born in 1988. They officialy split shortly after Austin's birth and engaged in a custody battle the baby that was later settled.
