Joe Budden has addressed recent controversial Twitter remarks made by Fabolous toward his new love interest, Somaya Reece, and said the statements placed him in an "awkward" position.
Declaring his loyalty toward Fab, Budden explained why he did not rush to offer a response to the rapper's taunts last week.
"The sh*t she was saying, it was a joke, she was making the same exact trending topic joke that she's been making, I thought that whole sh*t was really wack, really immature, really stupid, that whole sh*t that happened on Twitter," Budden explained in a blog cast. "That sh*t really made me look at n*ggas in a different light. But it put me in a real awkward position because Fab can make a whole bunch of jokes on Twitter and everybody will laugh and think it's funny, because he's just making jokes. And that's my man, the amount of loyalty and respect that I have for Fab is outta this world. I probably have more respect for him than anybody else in rap because he helped usher me into the game. But that was some sucker sh*t -- the second that I respond -- when I say sucker sh*t, I'm honestly not talking about nothing that Fab did, I may maybe feel like he went a little too far as far as some of them jokes went, some of them jokes really weren't funny to me. I'm talking about the blatant, f*cking d*ckriding that the fans were doing -- fans are such f*cking d*ckriders -- there's a lot of backstory and no matter what I would say, it'd look like I'm defending a girl that I don't really know or it'd look like I'm getting really, really, personal because I don't know how to do anything else but be personal."

Comparing Reece to Budden's ex, Tahiry, Fabolous "responded" to comments made by the model.
"Did this rebound a** chick jus make a joke about my teeth?? @somaya_reece keep my name outta Tahiry's v*gina, i mean ur mouth! POW!," Fab playfully wrote Tuesday morning (November 10). "Time 2 expose this 2nd place chick Somaya Reece... So she know not throw people names out without knowing the consequences... #Somayareeceis Tahiry but the sequel... #Somayareeceis a stuntman 4 Joe Budden's real girlfriend... RT @SessioniZill: #Somayareeceis about to remix Pleasure P's joint.. "Girlfriend Number 2"... I bet #Somayareeceis havin 2nd thoughts about f*ckin wit me... #Somayareeceis gonna go 2 Yankee games next year wit a Derek Jeter #2 jersey!" (Fabolous' Twitter)
Budden's latest girlfriend introduced herself to fans by sitting next to the rapper and declaring her loyalty toward him during a recent blogcast.
"Don't worry because there's nothing to worry about," Reece said during a Budden blogcast. "And I know the feeling because I'm an artist too, when you're going through something, it does reflect on your music. But there's no need to worry about that anymore. Somaya Reece is in the building...Regardless though, with music, whether it's depressing -- the fact that you have an honest artist like Joe, is something that is very rare. And it's something you don't really see out there...Everybody is making ridiculously stupid music and I'm not gonna name names -- am I lying to you guys? I will be good to Joe, always. I am a very traditional woman. I take care of my man." (World Star Hip Hop)
She has also addressed the comparison to herself and Tahiry.
"The hatred is pretty much always the same thing," she explained in an interview. "Either they think I'm trying to gain some sort of career-obviously they don't know who I am, because I was already doing it. I have accomplished everything on my own without an agent or any help. And then his ex-girlfriend [Tahiry], there's the comparisons, 'Oh you're hotter' or 'You're nothing' or 'His ex-girlfriend's prettier.' And that's really unfortunate that other people are more obsessed about that than he is or I am...I don't know anything about her. I think it's wrong that everyone is judging her, as well. She had to have been a good person for him to have been with her and I think she's beautiful. I've seen pictures of her. People move on, now everyone else needs to move on." (VIBE)
