Monday, Oct 5, 2009 2:45PM
Joe Budden's former girlfriend Tahiry has confirmed parting ways with the Slaughterhouse rapper and revealed details behind her past relationship with Fabolous.
Speaking in a Complex interview, the recent KING Magazine covergirl said despite being broken up, she would not speak badly about him.
"I just feel like -- I'm never going to speak bad about Joey," Tahiry promised. "I love him. Five years. It was a long time. We were just growing apart. We were not in the same zip codes. I just didn't feel like after five years we were building that foundation together. For a long time it was, 'Joe, Joe, Tahiry, Tahiry.' When it was beneficial, it was Joe and Tahiry. But you know after five years, you're supposed to feel like you're building something. I didn't feel like we were building anything...I dated one other rapper [Ed. note--that would be Fabolous]. We're very good friends now, contrary to belief. Very good friends. Remember after that I said, 'Ugh! Never a rapper!' Not because he was bad, because it was a lot. People think it's easy. All glitz and glamour, but it's not that easy. Then Joey came. And when he came, it wasn't supposed to happen, but I'm glad it did. I'm not interested in dating anyone right now. But I'm not saying never say never because you know sh*t happens" (Complex)
Footage of a leaked "break-up" conversation between Tahiry and Budden landed online last month.
"You better not start acting like you're not the f*cking insecure boyfriend that you are," she said in the video. "Get the f*ck away from me. People think I'm crazy because I'm completely f*cking spazzing on camera but you're the f*cking retarded one, you just hide it well. Saying this crazy sh*t, 'Look at Tahiry with two f*cking laptops, she's retarded.' No n*gga, you're retarded. Give me my f*cking phone back and stop playing games with me...Stop recording me, I'm serious. [crying] I'm dead a** serious. You need f*cking help. Stop with this Twitter sh*t about me too because you're f*cking retarded..." (Pulse Report)
Fabolous previously spoke with SOHH earlier this year about his ex-girlfriend's King magazine cover.
"I definitely think it was big for her being that she's never been on the cover of anything. I think that's kind of an accomplishment to say the least," he said. "She's not a model. She's just Joe Budden's girlfriend and she ended up being on King mag. It's just congratulations really. The stupid rapper right here would've said something else, that would've got another blog made back at me but it's congratulations. I'm happy for her." (SOHH)
She also launched Tahiry TV over the summer with the help of Budden.
"Hey everybody, this is Tahiry and welcome to my world, TahiryTV.com" she said upon announcing her new site. "Finally here, I mean, it took forever but I was just trying to get it right. Between having the cover of a magazine, having a full time job and being a full time girlfriend to Joe Budden, who I love to death, um, my life has been pretty hectic. But I'm very blessed and I want to thank all my fans. Thank-you to all my Twitters, follow me. Thank-you to all my MySpace buddies, FaceBook buddies, thanks to everybody that made this possible. On my site you'll be able to find photo galleries, the store where you can purchase my posters, my calendar for 2010, which I'm shooting, um, right now. You'll be able to find my upcoming events, you'll be able to leave me any comments, ask me any questions. It's a blog site where I'll be talking about fashion, who's who, news, how I'm feeling, what I'm seeing...Strap on tight and enjoy the ride, welcome." (Tahiry TV)
