As previously reported the Xscape songstress walked the carpet at the Soul Train Awards in a green MNM couture gown that was strikingly different from the gowns worn by her bandmates; Kandi Burruss-Tucker, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, and Tamika Scott.

And while the dress was stunning, it caused a commotion amongst fans who alleged that LaTocha purposely wore it to look like the lead singer.

After LaTocha shut down that theory by saying “she missed the memo” about attire, Kandi railed against that with claims that LaTocha hired her own separate stylist.

“Stop putting out false narratives,” said Kandi.

 

Now LaTocha’s speaking out yet again and she’s seemingly far from finished sharing her side of the story.

LaTocha Scott Says Kandi Blocked Her On Instagram, Releases Receipts

On Instagram Wednesday, LaTocha responded to a TheYBF caption that alleged that she blocked Kandi on Instagram. The singer, 49, hopped in the site’s comments to clarify that Kandi actually blocked her, not the other way around.

“This is what I mean by putting out false narratives,” wrote Scott.

Following that, the singer posted an interesting video on her page captioned, “People are betting on your silence. NOT THIS TIME!” The video features audio of Pastor Jamal Bryant saying phrases like;

“They don’t understand that they pushed you too far. You tried to play me one too many times.[…] I’m tired of biting my tongue and I done ran outta cheeks to turn.”

That’s not all, however.

LaTocha also posted a text from her stylist Jon asking the group’s stylist about the color scheme for the Soul Train Awards. The texts confirmed that a specific theme wasn’t shared and the stylist was told to pick something “glamorous and long.”

LaTocha also shared a photo of Kandi, Tiny and her sister Tamika dressed like the Supremes at Nelly’s Mo-Town-themed birthday celebration.

“They were just the Supremes a week ago,” wrote the singer. “I guess I knew about this too huh?”

Can you say, M E S S?!

 

That’s not all, however, the songstress went on to release a lengthy statement detailing her issue with the rest of the group.

LaTocha Scott Releases An Open Letter Detailing Her Issues With The Group

According to LaTocha who penned an open letter, she’s hurt that the ladies of Xscape didn’t defend her amid the dress drama.

Moreover, she’s especially hurt that the ladies are continuing their tour via a promoter who threatened her husband’s life.

“First off, I’d like to apologize to all of the fans,” LaTocha began. “It’s so unfortunate that I have to tell my truth this way. However, in this new space, I won’t be silenced by who has the bigger following. If I don’t say anything I’m dragged, and if I do say something I’m dragged. So here it goes…”

According to LaTocha, she used her own stylist because the group was initially at odds with an unnamed stylist for overcharging them. The group settled the dispute however and went on to use the stylist at the Soul Train awards—but LaTocha said she already chose to use someone else. She also added that her stylist [Jon The Stylist] was in communication with the group’s stylist so she’s unsure why the color scheme/dress code wasn’t shared. FashionBombDaily reports that the other ladies were styled by famed stylist Jeremy Haynes, also known as No IG Jeremy.

LaTocha added that she was stunned that none of her groupmates defended her amid the dress drama

“Had any of my “sisters” come to my defense, it wouldn’t have gone this far,” wrote the Xscape songstress. “Instead, they watched me being dragged on the Internet as if I’m the problem or this was done intentionally, which is untrue.”

She also went into detail about skipping the tour on behalf of her husband who is also her manager. According to LaTocha, the tour’s promoter made a death threat to him and said she would end up a widow.

“The promoter then referenced getting my husband’s “head touched” and me being a widow. Would you have gone on tour with him???” she asked.

She also revealed that she’s estranged from her sister Tamika because of public comments she made about their mother. It’s unclear which comments she’s referencing.

“I choose FAMILY and LOYALTY over everything but when my sister chose to disrespect OUR mother on a public platform, I literally couldn’t stomach it and we haven’t spoken since. This just hurts,” she added.

Kandi, Tiny & Tamika Share Posts Amid The Xscape Dress Drama

Instead of responding to LaTocha’s shade, Kandi moved on and posted a video from Xscape tour rehearsals.

“Putting in work with my girls @majorgirl & @therealtamikascott making sure the show is gonna be lit on Friday!” Kandi captioned the post. “Nashville & Birmingham we’ll see you this weekend! Get your tickets now!”

LaTocha is not part of the tour.

Tiny Harris also recently shared a meme about not sharing your side of the story because “God saw it all.”

“Can’t even enjoy our moment,” she captioned the post.

As for Tamika Scott, she initially didn’t speak out about her sister’s comments and instead promoted the group’s upcoming shows like Kandi.

She said in a comment to a fan however that “right is right.”

“God knows the truth!” wrote Tamika Scott. “I love my sister LaTocha and has had her back for years right or wrong! It comes a time when you mature and have to make the right decisions!”

What do YOU think about this Xscape tour dress dilemma? Do you think there’s more drama to come or will the ladies move on?
