Former G.O.O.D Music affiliate Consequence has confirmed fellow “Love & Hip Hop” cast member Joe Budden‘s claim of ex-girlfriend Tahiry striking him and suggested the Slaughterhouse member also joined in on the fun.
According to Cons, he took a few hits from Budden and refused to press charges when approached by police.
“Cons you pressing charges??? Absolutely Not!!!,” Cons tweeted late March 12th night.
“Actually I laughed at that sh*t!!!”
“@JoeBudden Y’all hit like b*tches #straightlikethat Actually Tahiry hit me harder n*gga. I told the Police that I don’t press charges.” (Consequence’s Twitter)
Hours prior, Budden called into New York radio station Hot 97 to clear the air on what allegedly went down during yesterday’s “Love & Hip Hop” reunion taping.
“We’re at the reunion, we’re filming, I’ve been doing this reunion all day long and we probably won’t be done until 10 o’clock,” Budden said in an interview. “They’re breaking right now, they’re getting the next group of audience members in there. I’m in a room with security standing all outside the door. It was a break and I grabbed Tahiry because me and her be fiending to go smoke a cigarette, so we’re headed out and someone just runs up behind me and hits me in the back of the head, with their hand. I turn around because I’m thinking this is a girl that did this upset about something I said during the filming and it’s him and he’s running away now. So now he’s real far away from me. Apparently he hit me in the back of the head while I was walking away, Tahiry snuffed him and then he ran off and then eight security guards came and grabbed me off. [laughs] A spectacle happened. [Injuries?] No, no, no, not at all. I don’t have anything. … I honestly thought this was a woman doing it.” (“The Angie Martinez Show”)
Budden also said music network VH1 likely caught the entire altercation on tape.
“What’s funny is he ran to go tweet about it and in the tweet he said, ‘I just smacked Joe Budden. Queens. Everybody enjoy their day.’ So this is from the Hot 97 footage, when I approached him at the station over there. Yeah, so, apparently he didn’t like the backlash he received from it and this was his way of saving face, but — Tahiry was directly next to me as we were walking, she turned around and hit him. … The VH1 cameras don’t ever stop rolling. Actually, I think they’re trying to get me and him on stage to see what his issue is. I’m not going to do nothing but invite him to the bathroom.” (“The Angie Martinez Show”)
Cons initially broke the news of his attack on Joe earlier in the day.
“Just Smacked The SH*T outta @JoeBudden at the #LHHReunion Everybody have a Nice Day…. #QueensAllDay,” Cons tweeted March 12th. (Consequence’s Twitter)
