Talib Kweli‘s wife, DJ Eque, has spoken out against rumors claiming she resorted to assaulting her rapper husband after he was caught flirting with women at his recent New York City listening party.
Responding to the claims via Twitter, Eque said the rumors were fabricated.
“Who is making up all these crazy ass rumors? My husband did not hit me & I didn’t go into rage and attack him over flirting?? That’s crazy,” she tweeted Monday (December 27).
“Ppl need to check there facts before they start reblogging stuff!!”
“Its time for joy and blessing, just stop with all the negative talk and energy….we all need to be more thankful” (DJ Eque’s Twitter)
Reports from the New York Post detailed the alleged melee.
Rapper Talib Kweli was thrown out of an after-party for his own record-listening event after he got into a fight with his wife, DJ Eque. Spies tell us Eque “flew into a rage and launched herself at Kweli” after she spotted him flirting with other women at the bash at West 14th Street bar Snap. Brooklyn-based Kweli has collaborated with stars including Kanye West and Mos Def. (NY Post)
A source from the event had also provided a blow-by-blow recap of what allegedly went down.
Our source said, “Kweli made a joke thanking the sponsor, Hennessey, for paying for his wedding in 2009, saying otherwise he wouldn’t have got married. The party later carried on in a private room. When his wife saw him chatting and being friendly with other women, she flew off the handle. She went at him and they were almost wrestling before they fell back on a table, smashing some glasses. Security then asked them to leave, and they carried on the argument outside as they got into their car.” Kweli and Eque couldn’t be reached. (NY Post)
Kweli and Eque officially wed nearly two years ago.
Pardon me Talib, but if I were wifey, I would’ve jumped on you when you made that smart-ass comment about how you wouldn’t have gotten married! That was wrong on so many levels. Anyway, the “Get By” rapper and Eque were married in May 2009 after a two-year courtship in front of a crowd that included D. Woods, Queen Latifah, and Questlove. Hey, since Hennessy paid for the wedding, I wonder if they’ll chip in for the divorce? (Dr. Jays)
