According to JD, he chose to leave his position as manager for the singer because he felt that it would have eventually affected their friendship. He revealed that many chose to assume he was dropped by Mariah rather than consider the possibility that he left on his own terms.
The record producer also shared an ongoing joke that compared his relationship with Mariah to that of Mariah's relationship with her now estranged husband, Nick Cannon.
"That's the story that people make because that's what people—People think in their minds that that's exactly how it has to happen," Dupri said. "It can't be—It just can't possibly be that Jermaine woke up one morning and didn't want to do it no more. That just can't possibly happen, right? That just can't possibly be the thing. Like he had to get dropped because that's what happens in the world. Niggas get dropped. But nobody else has a mind to say 'You know what? I don't really wanna do this shit no more. I got other shit I want to do. But I'm not that smart, right? I couldn't do that. That's impossible.' That's what I'm saying. It's crazy that people just make these stories. I wasn't dropped. I chose that—I chose to do this because me and Mariah are friends, right? First and foremost. And we make hit records in the studio…This was the ongoing joke. I have a relationship with Mariah better than her and her husband. I've known her longer than her and her husband known each other…With that being said, you don't want to fuck that up. I saw a lot of things happening with inside of me being her manager that could have fucked that up."
Later in the interview, Dupri referred to himself as a "psychiatrist of artists" when describing the relationship he's had with the artists he's worked with throughout his career. He also revealed that the general public assumed he was dropped from Def Jam when he instead chose to leave the label because he was unable to do what he wanted.
"I'm like a psychiatrist of artists," he said. "If you wanna sit and talk to me and work out things that's going on in your life I'm that person that most of these artists talk to. So, with that being said, me and Mariah we good…That's the same story that came out when I left Def Jam. 'He got kicked out of Def Jam.' I chose to leave because if what I do is not being recepted then it's not no need for me to do it. And I'm easily the person that will get—If you start not allowing me to do what I do then I will easily start removing myself away from that picture. And I have done that so many times."
There still hasn’t been an official statement yet on the status of these two, but unofficially its looking like they’re done. From the sounds of things Future couldn’t commit to being completely faithful just yet.
“Ciara left her rapper fiance Future, after she learned that her baby daddy was cheating on her with his wardrobe consultant, Tyrina Lee, an insider reveals to Us Weekly.
As Us broke the news last week, the “I’m Out” singer, 28, called it quits with Future just three months after welcoming their newborn son, Future Zahir Wilburn. According to the insider, Ciara learned of her man’s infidelity through the rumor mill, too.
“She found out about the affair through multiple sources in recent weeks,” the insider tells Us. “There was clear evidence when she approached Future about the cheating. This was clearly not just a one-night thing.”
Lee was Future’s stylist specifically for his music and photo shoots, as well as his personal shopper. According to the same insider, Ciara was “devastated” about her fiance’s betrayal.”
Check out the rumored sidechick:
What’s worse is that allegedly Future has been flying ol’ girl out on private jets and showering her with gifts and she purposely posts pics for Ciara to see.
It seems like these rappers keep breaking Cici’s heart…maybe you need to move around and find a decent R&B singing dude.
With all the drama stirred up on last season’s LHHNY, looks like Joey may be looking at some real trouble if these accusations are true. MediaTakeout is reporting that Budden allegedly beat up his girlfriend pretty bad.
“Rapper Joe Budden got upset because [JOE'S GIRLFRIEND] dumped him after discovering he was cheating and hooking up with strippers. She then went out (clubbing) with a couple of friends to blow off some steam. One of her friends boyfriend uploaded pictures of [JOE'S GIRLFRIEND] clubbing on Instagram and someone forward the pictures to Joe.
Joe [must have] thought [JOE'S GIRLFRIEND] was out clubbing and flirting with other men so he showed up Sunday morning, where she was out eating with friends (in Washington Heights) and told her to get in his car. When she entered his car he immediately bashed her head into the dashboard of the car and drove off with her to his house [in neighboring Ne Jersey] when they arrive into his drive way he dragged her out the car her kicking and screaming and he repeatedly punched and kicked her in the ground.
Once inside the home he choked her to the point she thought he was going to kill her. She said he had to fight her way off him, gasping for air. He spitted in her face and threatened her not to tell anyone. She said the look on his face was dreadful like he had no soul. She managed to escape his home and contacted the police. Currently there as been no arrest made. A police report has been filed for New York and New Jersey.”
Do you think Budden went upside ol’ girl’s head like that???
Cannon spoke with Entertainment Weekely’s The Insider stating “There is trouble in paradise…we have been living in separate houses for a few months.” This seemingly confirms reports that the pair have been separated since June and are in the midst of an impending divorce.
An Us Weekly source revealed that Cannon has been more despondent on the set of America’s Got Talent and “he never talks about Mariah, and she has never been to set in all the seasons he has hosted.”
The couple have two children, Moroccan and Monroe, born in 2011.
“50 Cent couldn't have done better because he can't throw a baseball,” Bob Costas says during an interview with TMZ. "It was gonna go sideways again."
Costas himself asked for and was granted an opportunity to redo a first pitch attempt he made earlier this week at a St. Louis Cardinals game. "I knew I could do better because I had done better my whole life," he says, "and then I did.”
