Joe Budden's new girlfriend, Somaya Reece, has broken her silence on Tahiry Jose by speaking up for the rapper's former lover and defending her against the public's negative judgment.
In addition to Tahiry, Somaya also discussed the heat she has already received from being with the outspoken rapper.
"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)
Fabolous recently took to his Twitter page to poke fun at Somaya as Budden's "rebound" girlfriend.
"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 playfull 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)
She sat next to the rapper and declared her loyalty toward him during a blogcast earlier this month.
"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)
Budden previously aired out his issues with Tahiry in a blog chat last month.
"My life is pretty routine and predictable," Budden said during a blog broadcast. "i don't need much, I'm not controlling, I'm not jealous, I'm not insecure, I'm not any of the things that Tahiry would say that I am. I'm like cool as a fan -- the really sad part about my entire five-year relationship that I am just now getting out of, you can call it arrogant, you can call it cocky, you can call it whatever the f*ck you want to call it, I was ready to marry my significant other. Let me just say that. Thank the f*cking lord above that that did not happen...It would have been a whole lot worse if I had married Tahiry. I went from being ready to settle down -- and now that I am outside of that relationship, it's easy to see that I spent five years settling." (JoeBuddenTV)
