Rapper Yung Berg has come forward to clarify his motivation for casting reality show star Natalie Nunn in his new “So Amazing” music video and whether or not they have an intimate relationship when the cameras are off.
Despite past rumors, Berg said Nunn was nothing more than a good friend.
“It kind of happened organically,” Berg said about casting her in his music video. “I live in LA and I’ve known Natalie and she’s just always around. We just happened to be in LA and to be honest with you, due to the content of the record, I was like I didn’t want it to be me with a whole bunch a women. I felt like that’s been done before. Me and Nat are friends and the Internet is always putting us together like we’re dating or I’m f*cking her. So we were like let’s play a joke and put the video out, so if people want to attach us like that, let’s go ahead and make some history. It happened real quick. I called her the day of the video, like ‘Yo Nat what you’re doing today?’ and she was like, ‘I’m not doing nothing, just shopping.’ Two hours later she showed up and we shot the video.” (VIBE)
Berg also said he was slightly hesitant about casting Wiz Khalifa‘s ex-girl.
“And the crazy thing is Wiz has been my peoples for at least four years now,” Berg added. “I kind of was like ‘Yo should I ask?’ — and I know how Wiz is and I did that song so long ago and it’s just coincidence that they had a situation but I know Wiz is a real easy going person and he’s not sweating it and I’m not sweating it either.” (VIBE)
Earlier this year, Nunn blasted Khalifa and his rumored current girlfriend/model Amber Rose.
“How I want to end this story is — I wish the best of luck to Amber Rose, I wish the best of luck to Wiz. I don’t wish bad on nobody,” Nunn added. “I don’t have a heart like that, I just don’t give a f*ck. [He] was hawking me! At the end of the day, I’m just a bad b*tch. I’m grinding — I got some sh*t coming out, I got another show about to air. We didn’t tape a pilot, we taped the show and it’s not behind my green money eyes. It’s about Natalie being a bad b*tch. At the end of the day, I respect everything, I respect everybody. If you disrespect me, I’m going to get all in your motherf*cking a**. So if there is a retaliation video just make sure you understand what you are saying before you say anything because I got dirt and I don’t like to throw dirt, I like to bury b*tchies in f*cking dirt — At the end of the day if you have something to say — all due respect, say what you got to say. But at the end of the day, your new sh*t was my sloppy seconds.” (Ustream)
Wiz later explained his falling out with Nunn.
“She was considered cool,” Wiz said about his past fling with Natalie Nunn. “I met her in Pittsburgh, she came to my city. She wasn’t lying about that — I came to check her out at her job. She was way cooler than she seemed on TV — I was nothing but nice to her. It was a good first meeting. She left a good impression, it wasn’t nothing I was mad about. And she wasn’t mad at me — but down the line, I don’t know where it got mixed up at. The [bird] feed ran short. And this was a short amount of time we’re talking about too — it’s just real unfortunate, because I’m such a positive person.” (In Flex We Trust)
