Kandi Burruss recently cleared up old rumors about her dating Jermaine Dupri and his father on the “Club Shay Shay” podcast.
Shannon Sharpe, the host of the podcast, asked Kandi if people were upset when they found out that she was dating JD.
Kandi said people did not really know that they were kicking it like that.
The only people who actually knew, um, as far as from me.
Like I’m not saying whoever he…
I talked to Tiny a lot, and Tamika Scott… The three of us were like the three musketeers, and we would, you know, share secrets with each other.
So, um, you know, I would talk to them about it, and they would know.
But, not like… I wouldn’t be like… If we came in the room you wouldn’t even know anything was going on.
She also made it clear that she did not date Jermaine to get put on. She said she was already on, and XSCAPE had two successful albums out before they crossed that line.
Kandi also addressed the rumor that Tamika Scott put out on the radio about her also dating Jermaine Dupri’s dad.
The part that I felt like for a long time wasn’t clear, and people try to run with.
She was like, ‘Oh Kandi, you know, was having sex with Jermaine,’ and she tried to make it seem like that was the reason the group broke up.
And that was not, that was the first thing.
And then, the other thing was… I stop talking to her for a decade, but we’re friends again. We’re friends again.
But anyway, but then the other part was, that she added to it, was that she tried to say, ‘Yeah, she screwed his daddy’ or something like that.
That was way over the top, and then I was, like, really like hurt and upset by that whole situation because, you know, a long time she and I had a great friendship, and then it’s just like I understand we’re no longer, like, working together like we use to.
But, why would you do that?… But I never tried to clear up, publicly, what she said at that time.
But, that rumor lingered for years, and so that was what was frustrating to me.
It wasn’t the part about Jermaine, it was the other part. Because it’s just like… Like, dang you gotta make seem like I was just like… going through the family.
Like, what the hell!… You know?…
Kandi said she decided to let it go when her group member let it be known that the rumor wasn’t true.
