Irv Gotti responded after Fat Joe called him out for his comments about Ashanti during a recent episode of Drink Champs. When Gotti appeared on the show, he talked about his alleged love affair with Ashanti. He also said that Ashanti’s song “Happy” was written after the two had sex, Complex reports.
Fat Joe then posted a video on Instagram, saying Gotti disrespected the R&B singer. Gotti addressed Fat Joe’s criticism on Tuesday when he appeared on the radio station 97.9 The Box in Houston, XXL Mag reports.
“I feel like [Fat Joe] fooled me, he’s not my friend. But in life you get fooled,” Gotti told hosts Keisha Nicole, J-Mac and Jess on the radio show. “So, I won’t talk about Joe, I’ll talk about life. In life, everyone goes through friends. People who you thought were your friends. I’m not talking about Joe. Let me talk. In life, I have had countless friends come and go. But, you know what remains consistent and why I get through all of this? My family. Because I don’t really need friends.”
