Someone’s old jump off dished the dirt to Complex mag…
Flip the hood to find out who???
Tahiry recently broke up with her boyfriend of five years Joe Buddens and dishes to Complex why she did it:
Complex: You know Joe said the break-up is none of anyone’s business, etc. Were their multiple reasons or was there one big blowout?
Tahiry: Multiple reasons. He said it was nobody’s business? That’s what he said? ‘Cause he said so much. I don’t even know. At the end, he just lashed out all out of control.
Complex: What was the biggest deal-breaker for you?
Tahiry: I just feel like…I’m never going to speak bad about Joey. I love him. Five years. It was a long time. We were just growing apart. We were not in the same zip codes. I just didn’t feel like after five years we were building that foundation together. For a long time it was, “Joe, Joe, Tahiry, Tahiry.” When it was beneficial, it was Joe and Tahiry. But you know after five years, you’re supposed to feel like you’re building something. I didn’t feel like we were building anything.
Complex: Right. So this year, a lot of people have said that you helped Joey be relevant again…
Tahiry: I won’t say that I made him more relevant. I think that people got to know him through his blogs. People got to know a rapper who was on his downtime, who was busy underground, who was busy releasing these digital albums and stuff. I think that the minute he started recording these blogs and then they see this girl and are like, “Oh my god,” they’re like, “Where has he been?” It’s like a combination of things—getting to know the fun side of him, or how humble and normal he is, and how crazy his Latina girlfriend is. So I think people think we’re relatable. I wouldn’t say that I made him relevant, per se.
Complex: Did you ever feel exploited?
Tahiry: That’s a good question. My mom thinks I was. I enjoyed it. I didn’t care. To me, the first time we went on this whole blog thing it was sort of like fun to him. He thought he was onto something. I think it caught us both by surprise. I enjoyed it and I wouldn’t change it.
Complex: So, last week your Twitter account got hacked. There have been rumors that Joe was behind the hacking. He definitely did it? Seems a bit childish. Has he talked to you about that?
Tahiry: Again, a lot of it is out of control. He’s dealing with a lot of emotions. It’s five years so we’re both dealing with our emotions. You know if you’ve ever been hurt, or if you’ve ever lost something, or something’s just disappeared, or the rug was pulled from underneath you…if you don’t suffer, then you’ve never loved. People react to that suffering different and we’ve spoken after that. He’s apologized.
