Joe Budden addresses domestic abuse allegations in cryptic tweet – Music News
Written by admin on September 9, 2020
Joe Budden is the subject of social media controversy after recent allegations of domestic abuse and his leave from Spotify.
Just last week, his ex-girlfriend and Love & Hip Hop star Tahiry Jose alleged the former rapper and podcast host physically abused her during what Joe called a “toxic” relationship.
“I’m very comfortable saying, you were abusive,” Joe responded on The Joe Budden podcast. “You used to beat [me]! You threw [stuff], you hit me, you kicked me, you did a whole bunch of [stuff].”
Now, in a recently leaked phone conversation, obtained by The Shade Room, Budden’s former fiancee, Cyn Santana, accuses him of chasing and dragging her during a meet-up session. She also claimed he kicked her and their two-year-old son Lexington out of his house.
Joe has yet to formally respond to these allegations, though Cyn decided to address the leaked call in a nearly 10-minute video on Instagram. “I don’t play about my family, and I most definitely don’t play about my son. Mind y’all business. Love ?????,” she captioned.
“So, it’s not secret that Joseph and I broke up over a year and a half ago. It’s no secret. We’re in the public eye, we’re in the limelight, we’re public figures…” Cyn said in the video. “My family is a real family with real blood in their veins. With a heart. We’re still human beings. We have the right to privacy.”
Twitter fans had a lot to say about the accusations, including one fan who wrote, “Bro Idk who you pissed off, but the smear campaign is crazy.”
Budden responded in a cryptic tweet, writing, “You can’t kill nothing that’s ready to die.”
