Everybody has a story to tell and this time it’s Pep from Salt-N-Pepa. She speaks on harsh relationships (once married to Treach from Naughty by Nature and has a child with rapper Tyran (Tah-Tah) Moore) and domestic disputes with “Brad” in her book “Let’s Talk About Pep”:
“I had the hot iron in my hand and he had a handful of my hair. He grabbed the hand with the iron in it and was pushing [it] toward my face. … He ended up pressing that hot iron against my other arm. I heard my flesh sizzling, and the smell was sickening. I started screaming from the pain. He dropped the iron and I turned to run, and his nail swiped across my eyeball and shredded my cornea.” The incident left her with deep scars and an eye patch.
The couple had another brawl at actor Omar Epps’ house, where, she says, “Brad” threw her through a glass coffee table and tried to push her down the stairs.
One night, when she was hanging out with rappers Kid ‘n Play and a few others, “Play tried to clown me at the table. … Everyone started laughing. I got up and grabbed him by his collar and dragged him down the whole length of the table, knocking everybody’s food and drink onto the floor. Play never made fun of me again.”
One rapper who did impress her was Tupac Shakur, whom she met on the set of the “Whatta Man” video. “He was a good guy. I remember him telling me that he had never been in trouble with the law until he got into the music business. [He said,] ‘I ain’t never had a record until I made a record!'”
Damn, that domestic violence sh*t is no joke. If niccas are cooking and burning up your flesh like that, it is indeed time to let that motherfu*ker go. Ain’t no love that strong. SMH.
