A “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” cohost is confirming a super salacious rumor about an R&B singer. Da Brat, who’s a close family friend of her So So Def collaborator Jermaine Dupri is speaking out on a rumor surrounding Tamar Braxton.
Last week K. Michelle once again reignited her beef with Tamr after Tamar BALKED at the idea of doing a VERZUZ battle with her. That clearly pissed off K because she went on an expletive-filled rant against Tamar and accused the singer of previously having an affair with Michael Mauldin, the father of Jermaine Dupri.
“You can’t f*ckin go around talking about nobody when you sleeping with a married man,” said K. You was sleeping with Jermaine Dupri Daddy. How you sleeping Jermaine Dupri Daddy and get your a** beat by Jermaine Dupri momma in an elevator?! But you want to talk about me? I don’t f*ck married men. But you so holy? Hmmm.”
Tamar’s since said that she’s in a different place and wouldn’t be acknowledging the rumor, but unfortunately for her OTHER people are acknowledging it including Da Brat.
During the most recent episode of “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show,” Da Brat confirmed that an elevator showdown did INDEED happen.
According to the rapper, however, it was between Tamar and Jermaine Dupri’s STEPMOM, not JD’s biological mother who Brat says is like a second mom to her. Brat added that she was in the elevator at the time so she was an eyewitness.
“Jermaine Dupri’s momma is Momma Tina. So it wasn’t his momma,” said Brat. “That did happen. I happened to be in that elevator. The whole Beyoncé thing, that definitely happened. That’s Michael Mauldin’s ex-wife. Lord Jesus, no comment. I was in the elevator honey. It was just a situation. And Michael Mauldin’s ex-wife was a little fed up and it went down in the elevator. When it opened, I exited the elevator stage left. I didn’t have nothing to do with it. This was a while ago.”
Tamar has yet to respond to Da Brat outing the elevator escalation, but you can see her shake off K’s words on the flip.
Tamar shook off K’s accusations during an IG Live alongside her boyfriend David Adefeso.
“I don’t really have a lot to say because I feel like whenever I talk, it gets misconstrued,” said Tamar. “I’m in a different place in my life. I don’t want to be a part of any type of negativity of any kind. …being professional, not having this stereotype of the angry Black woman and not having the stereotypes that come along with being on reality television which is always being negative, always being problematic, always being messy or whatever, it’s almost like the work that you do gets covered up by mess. The last thing that I am going to waste my time with is giving negative energy, energy.”
Her boyfriend also flat out called the Michael Mauldin rumors “false and concocted.”
“What I saw this morning made me sad, because I saw one strong black woman, [a] strong good-looking black woman, tear another strong, good-looking black woman down and it broke my heart,” he said. “What makes me sad is Tamar now gotta defend herself against something which is false. Against something which was concocted. Against something which was meant to defame her character. As her man, it broke my heart.”
TheJasmineBrand obtained a video of him making the statement which you can watch below.
K’s since responded to David Adefeso.
She mocked his African accent in a video using Twitter’s new voice-note feature but deleted it after fans called it “tasteless” and “anti-black.
“My brother, it also made me so sad when I saw her no edges,” she said in the since-deleted tweet using a Nigerian accent.
That’s not cute, K.
She’s since said that she’s “shaking off the drama.”
