Faith Evans's husband and manager TODD RUSSAW takes no offence at the singer's overblown stage tributes to her late husband NOTORIOUS BIG - he knows they make financial sense for her career.

But the LOVE LIKE THIS singer admits she would struggle to cope if Russo made constant declarations of love for former girlfriends.

She says, "That's been part of my show for eight years now. I don't know if I could handle it if the roles were reversed, but the way Todd has dealt with it has deepened my respect for him.

"You also have to remember that Todd is my manager. He wants me to make the most of everything that happened with Biggie and change it into a positive."
