Brooklyn rapper Fabolous recently shared his thoughts on the buzz behind VH1’s popular “Love & Hip Hop” reality series and refrained from addressing Kimbella’s premiere episode claim of sleeping with him while he was in a relationship with ex-girlfriend Emily B.
Although Fab fell back on the Kimbella question, he did admit he is a fan of television star Kim Kardashian‘s reality show series.
“I really don’t watch the show,” Fab said in an interview. “I’ve never really watched the show at all. I can’t really speak on Kimbella. Of course that’s Juelz [Santana’s] mother of his child, [co-star] Emily is the mother of my son. I have a lot of respect for her and I think she did the show in light of getting the attention to progress in other ways and do some other things. I’m automatically, in a sense, attached if I’m not there. [Do I get paid?] I don’t. Emily gets a check for it but I don’t. … I’m not really a big reality show fan. You know what I mean? I never really got into it, man. The only one I’ve actually, successfully watched was the ‘Kardashian’ show. It’s because it got so big.” (This Is 50)
In mid-November, Kimbella labeled Fab as nothing more than a thing of her past.
“Me? No! Why would I ever talk to Fab?,” Kimbella said when asked if she got Fab’s opinion on the show. “He’s a non-factor in my life. He was someone in my past and I don’t speak to people in my past. I’m not giving him anymore five minutes of fame. My situation is with my kids and my career, nothing else, so that’s where I’m leaving that. … The reason I signed up to do this is for my fans and people that are interested in me as a personality to see who I am as the real me. I’m very secure in myself, I keep it 100 and I really don’t give a f*ck. At the end of the day, I’m going to be me and portray me the way I am. You guys will get to see everything I went through, as far as being surrounded by new women in the industry and them trying to get to know me and just the different things I had to go through.” (XXL Mag)
On the second season’s premiere, Kimbella told Emily B of her past fling with Loso.
Rumors of Chrissy Lampkin (Jim Jones‘ girlfriend) giving Kimbella a beat down during the taping seemed to have panned out, because in the video below Chrissy gives her a real hood beating. Kimbella even admits to dating Fabolous three years ago to his baby’s mother who can only retort with the fact that she was pregnant three years ago. (Hip Hop Music)
Last month, the Brooklyn emcee said the show often paints him as a bad guy.
“I don’t think so,” Fab told radio host Angie Martinez when asked if he would ever appear in “Love & Hip Hop.” “I really went to support [girlfriend] Emily and something she was doing and I guess her show [cameras] were there and of course they took that and put a trailer or something together and put me in the trailer. … It’s just not my cup of tea. It’s one side of what’s going on and I don’t bash it but I’m really not in support of it either. I don’t think it depicts me as I am. It just depicts a one-sided version of what’s really going on. It’s a few different things that I don’t agree with, with the show. Ownership is one of them, there’s no ownership on her side. She’s kind of a piece of somebody else’s show and I’m not with that. I put too many years in business of me working in this industry for me to be a piece of somebody else’s things.” (Hot 97)
