Tahiry Explains Why She ‘Snuffed’ Consequence
This week, rappers Joe Budden and Consequence made headlines with their infamous brawls during the taping of the ‘Love & Hip Hop’ reunion special in New York. Cons made the first move by sucker-punching Budden during a break in taping. Tahiry was caught in the middle and apparently “snuffed” the Queens rapper.
The ‘Devil’ singer called into New York City’s Power 105.1 Breakfast Club morning show and gave a blow-by-blow report of the incident.
“We were gearing up to get up on stage [and] we had a little two-minute break and as Joey and I were walking out, [Consequence] flies over my head and sucker-punches him in the ear,” explains Tahiry. “Security rushes Joey to the other side of the room and they completely forgot about Tahiry. Right before security manage to get their hands on Consequence, I [punch him].”
Tahiry insists that her fist connecting with Cons’ face was purely unintentional. “It’s human nature. I just reacted,” she claims.
The bodacious model also thought it was one of the female cast members at first but soon realized it was Consequence. The incident also sparked rumors that Joey and Tahiry are back together again because they were spotted holding hands. “Don’t believe the hype,” she says. “Tune in on Monday nights at 8 p.m. on VH1.”
She didn’t watch the video of Budden’s retaliation after the show’s taping. Whether this put her in an awkward position with Cons’ girlfriend Jen the Pen, Tahiry only suggests that she fall back. “At this point, she should just stay in her lane,” she says.
“At the end of the day, you can’t creep up behind somebody and not expect to get hands put on them,” Tahiry continues. “It’s just retarded.”
All’s fair in love and war.
