"Love & Hip Hop" star Consequence reportedly snuffed fellow cast member Joe Budden during a reunion taping for the show today (March 12).
Cons broke the news to his 59,000-plus Twitter late Tuesday afternoon.
"Just Smacked The SH*T outta @JoeBudden at the #LHHReunion Everybody have a Nice Day.... #QueensAllDay," Cons tweeted March 12th. (Consequence's Twitter)
Despite the graphic account, Budden offered a different take on what went down.
"During break Tahiry & I were headed outside to smoke.. Dude came behind, jumped & hit me as I'm walking away, Tahiry snuffs him, he runs.....," Joe tweeted.
"It was the most p*ssy display ever seen from a n*gga to be quite honest... & it's all on tape, so y'all can see the p*ssy sh*t 4 yourself."
"@iMalRay I got a bunch of security n*ggas standing outside my door so I can't move.. He knows what time it is when I get outta here." (Joe Budden's Twitter)
Last week, Budden addressed surprising Cons during a Hot 97 radio interview.
"He had no prior knowledge that I would be up there and I didn't know that he'd be there. But when I saw him, you know I walked out first, but then I was like nah I have to, I have to say something to him," Budden explained in an interview. "I just wanted to have a conversation with him, face to face about anything that him or his significant other wanted to address to me. I wasn't there to fight or make him look a way, it wasn't a set-up, cameras, I wasn't there for that." (This Is 50)
Around mid-February, Budden broke his silence on the tense face-off.
"I gave him the opportunity [to speak] because I've seen him quite a few times, so, I gave him the opportunity to say anything that he or his wife needed to say to me," Budden explained in an interview. "[What did he need to say?] Well, I don't know. But if anything, let it be done there. [laughs] I have heard so much about that approach [I did], people have been calling me 'Dexter.' [I had] coffee. ... I just wanted to see what was up with him. ... I wouldn't have taken it very far at all, where we were. You know, because that's just not smart. ... I don't invite him over for Spades or anything like that, but I would like to think that we have an understanding. But I thought that prior to that conversation. I always think that everything is cool until I have to find out things aren't cool via radio, via media, you know. Hopefully we won't have that issue." (Sway's Universe)
The heated incident took place in early February and was caught on tape.
To no one's surprise, it looks like Joe Budden hasn't taken kindly to comments Consequence made about him in recent interviews with The Breakfast Club and Vlad TV. But it was Cons who was caught off-guard when guesting on Hot 97's Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg show, when his Love & Hip-Hop New York co-star interrupted the interview and confronted him directly. Budden called out Cons for talking slick about him behind his back, while Consequence fumbled his way out of a potential altercation (thankfully things didn't get physical, though) and blamed his interviewers and Raqi Thunda for instigating. Needless to say, it was a pretty awkward situation. We feel for you, Ciph! (Miss Info TV)
Back in summer 2009, Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon assaulted Budden backstage at a concert.
"First and foremost, what I would like to say, about that Joe Budden sh*t, we got the tape n*gga," Raekwon told a Toronto crowd. "Other than that, Raekwon loves you...I am a hundred percent street n*gga still, we don't get on camera and do that. Now my thing is this, I got love for Slaughterhouse. I like Slaughterhouse, them n*ggas already made it clear they have a lot of respect for Wu-Tang, for myself, this has never ever been a Wu-Tang versus Slaughterhouse thing -- This is about a kid who gets off on doing blogs. My thing is this, I'm a business man, I'm here to make money, take care of my family and keep as many people safe and sound as possible. We not gonna take it there 'cause that's little sh*t, we are grown men. I will never jump out the window to sacrifice the situation with my family for something that ain't worth it. I don't want nobody to hurt that man or do anything to him because I'm so known in so many different places, that's the easiest sh*t in the world." (YouTube)
