Brandon Barnes Talks Reginae Carter Fight
Brandon Barnes isn’t holding back about “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta.” The artist developer/son to Debra Antney recently broke down to BOSSIP what really happened during that “help Lil Wayne’s career” spat with Reginae Carter.
According to Brandon who was hired by Tiny Harris to be her daughter Zonnique’s vocal coach, Zonnique personally asked him to attend a photo shoot so that he could give her honest advice on her image. After getting to that fateful photoshoot, Brandon says he was blindsided by her attire because she’d just told him and his cousin, Ayana Fite, that she’s been getting criticized for “dressing too grown.”
“You can’t come from dressing like you’re a kid in a kid group to dressing like how Rihanna’s dressing,” Brandon said he told Zonnique. “Rihanna can do that because people watched her grow and watched her being developed.”
He also added that he stands firm in his criticism of her outfit although key parts of his comments were edited out…
“When I walked into the photoshoot I was thrown off, me being the friend that I am, my first approach was to approach Zonniqe and ask her, they didn’t show that,” said Brandon. […] Do I think Zonnique was underdressed? Absolutely that part was real.”
and he has no issue with Reginae.
“I don’t fault Reginae for anything,” said Brandon. “You’re taking up for your friend. Unfortunately, you’re taking up for your friend without knowing the convesations that your friend and I have had.”
