After keeping mainly mum since the November 5th physical altercation that landed Yung Berg in jail and her as the butt of LAHHH cast member criticism, Masika Tucker is finally speaking out on what happened that night and whether or not she is sticking with the man who allegedly beat her. Via Sister2Sister:
Masika Kalysha hasn’t had a lot of contact with “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” co-star Yung Berg since he allegedly choked, dragged and kicked her in a New York hotel.
“My focus right now is him being better. The focus should not be on us being a couple right now,” Masika told Sister 2 Sister. “It’s best that we don’t communicate as we were.”
More than anything, Masika said she wants Berg to get help, and his issue isn’t abusing women. “I feel like the only abuse issue that he has is alcohol abuse. I do feel like he has a drinking issue and that’s the issue at this time,” she said. “It was not an abusive situation.”
According to Masika, she and Berg did “cause quite a disturbance,” but the entire incident was blown out of proportion, in part, because it was a ritzy hotel, late at night and several guests in the hotel called the police.
“The stories were just erroneous,” Masika said about all the rumors that circulated after the altercation, which took place after 17 hours of taping the season 1 reunion show. As a result of the melee, Berg was arrested and charged with obstruction of breathing.
And although Masika skirts the specifics of what actually transpired between her and Berg that night, she is very particular about what she says did NOT happen:
Though Masika understands some may accuse her of defending her abuser, she’s not worried about what others think because she said knows what really happened that night.
“It was not an abuse situation. He did not attack me; he did not knock me out. He did not beat me up, none of that happened,” said Masika who could not confirm reports that Berg has been fired from the show.
“He was very drunk. It was to the point where he didn’t really know his bearings,” she said. “He needs to be focused on getting these charges dropped and getting the drinking under control.”
Interesting….do you think she’s just protecting Berg?? Masika doesn’t really need to confirm what Vh1 has already stated to be true, but do you think it’s fair or foul that Berg got the boot if he didn’t truly get into “an abusive situation” with Maskia??
Peep what the freshly freed Yung Berg had to say about Masika’s side of the story after the jump…
