AceShowbiz - Da Brat has weighed in on K. Michelle's recently-reignited feud with Tamar Braxton. Appearing on "The Rickey Smiley Morning Show", the two-time Grammy-nominated artist confirmed the "Ain't You" singer's allegations against The Braxtons founding member that she had slept with Jermaine Dupri's married father, Michael Mauldin.
However, contrary to K. Michelle's story that Tamar was beaten up by Jermaine's mother in an elevator due to the alleged affair, the "Loverboy" hitmaker said it was Michael's ex-wife who gave the "If I Don't Have You" songstress a lesson.
"Nope. Nope. Nope. Jermaine Dupri's momma is Momma Tina. So that did not happen...that's not his momma," said Da Brat. Claiming that she witnessed the whole drama, she added, "That did happen. I happened to be in that elevator...it was just a situation and Michael Mauldin's ex-wife was a little fed up...so it went down on the elevator."
The 46-year-old went on likening it to Jay-Z and Solange Knowles' elevator fight at the Met Gala, saying, "The whole Beyonce thing, that definitely happened, okay?" She once again stressed that Jermaine's mom wasn't involved, "But that ain't Jermaine Dupri's momma. That's Michael Mauldin's ex-wife."
Previously, K. Michelle aired Tamar's alleged dirty laundry after the latter wouldn't answer a question about whether she would do a Verzuz battle with K. Michelle. "It's best that I don't pull it out...it's best that I don't pull out this mouth, 'cause when I start talkin'- like, you can't go around talkin' 'bout nobody when you was sleepin' with a married man! You was sleepin' with Jermaine Dupri daddy! How you sleep with Jermaine Dupri daddy and get yo’ a** beat by Jermaine Dupri momma in a elevator?" so the former "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star said in a video rant.
Tamar later responded to K. Michelle's claims on her YouTube series "Quarantined & Coupled with Tamar Braxton and David Adefeso". "I don't really have a lot to say because whenever I talk it always gets misconstrued," she said. "Guys, I'm in a different place in my life. I don't want to be apart of any kind of negativity," she added. "The last thing I am going to waste my time with is giving negative energy, energy."
While Tamar was seemingly unbothered calm, her fiance David Adefeso admitted, "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 went on explaining, "What makes me sad is Tamar now gotta defend herself against something which is false. Against something which was concoted. Against something which was meant to defame her character. As her man, it broke my heart."
