Joe Budden recently discussed the details surrounding his break-up with Tahiry and said he was thankful he did not follow through and marry the one-time King Magazine covergirl.
Speaking via a blog broadcast, Budden spoke on the couple's differences.
"My life is pretty routine and predictable," Budden said during a blog broadcast. "i don't need much, I'm not controlling, I'm not jealous, I'm not insecure, I'm not any of the things that Tahiry would say that I am. I'm like cool as a fan -- the really sad part about my entire five-year relationship that I am just now getting out of, you can call it arrogant, you can call it cocky, you can call it whatever the f*ck you want to call it, I was ready to marry my significant other. Let me just say that. Thank the f*cking lord above that that did not happen...It would have been a whole lot worse if I had married Tahiry. I went from being ready to settle down -- and now that I am outside of that relationship, it's easy to see that I spent five years settling." (World Star Hip Hop)
During Tahiry's Shade 45 interview earlier this month, Budden called in to explain his stance.
"I haven't been updating JoeBuddenTV as much, these websites that I drive traffic to, they just really thirsty to put anything Joe Budden-associated on their site," Budden told radio personality Angela Yee. "They can suck d*ck. I'm listening... I wanna know what's going on right now, what is this interview about? It's about Complex online...It's now, people are gonna ask, whatever people that are representing you are using the break-up as a bargaining chip...It's looking like it's in bad taste, it's making five years a gimmick... You wouldn't like it... Tahiry, listen -- I didn't call to speak to [Tahiry]. Angela, it's not all about all fairness, Tahiry don't know nothin' about nothin'. She trying to be in a game where she don't know a thing about anything...So if you gonna use this as some type of bargaining chip, then you gonna sell a story, get a check for it...Let me tell you something, I do interviews every single day, every day, I do an interview...Good-bye." (Team Yee TV)
Tahiry previously promised she would not talk badly about Budden in interviews.
"I just feel like -- I'm never going to speak bad about Joey," Tahiry promised. "I love him. Five years. It was a long time. We were just growing apart. We were not in the same zip codes. I just didn't feel like after five years we were building that foundation together. For a long time it was, 'Joe, Joe, Tahiry, Tahiry.' When it was beneficial, it was Joe and Tahiry. But you know after five years, you're supposed to feel like you're building something. I didn't feel like we were building anything." (Complex)
Footage of a leaked "break-up" conversation between Tahiry and Budden landed online last month.
"You better not start acting like you're not the f*cking insecure boyfriend that you are," she said in the video. "Get the f*ck away from me. People think I'm crazy because I'm completely f*cking spazzing on camera but you're the f*cking retarded one, you just hide it well. Saying this crazy sh*t, 'Look at Tahiry with two f*cking laptops, she's retarded.' No n*gga, you're retarded. Give me my f*cking phone back and stop playing games with me...Stop recording me, I'm serious. [crying] I'm dead a** serious. You need f*cking help. Stop with this Twitter sh*t about me too because you're f*cking retarded..." (Pulse Report)
