Fabolous Talks About Relationship With Emily B., Says He Will Never Appear On ‘Love and Hip Hop’
Rucuss staffDecember 2, 2011
Fabolous has finally decided to give his side of the story.
The New York rapper sat down with Angie Martinez and talked candidly about his feelings for his son’s mother Emily B. He also gives his thoughts on VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop” and why he’s not on the show.
Fabolous said he doesn’t hold a grudge against “Love and Hip Hop” producers, but he does paint a different picture of his relationship with Emily B. He said the show is one-sided and he would never appear on it because he doesn’t have ownership of the show.
Check out excerpts from his interview with Martinez:
On how he feels about Love & Hip Hop:
It’s just not my cup of tea. It’s just one-side of what’s going on. I don’t bash it but I’m not really in support of it either. I don’t think it depicts me the way I am. It just depicts a one-sided version of what’s really going on.
On why he’s not on the show:
It’s a few different things I don’t agree with on the show. Ownership is one of them. There’s no ownership on her side and she’s kind of like a piece of somebody else’s show and I’m not with that. I put too many years of me working in this industry for me to be a piece of somebody else’s thing.
On what he thinks about VH1 bringing Kimbella on the show:
That’s how you know the producers of that show… I wouldn’t say that they don’t care about Emily but they’re there to make entertaining television. If they can dig up a girl from four years ago who can make an interesting twist in an episode of their show then guess what, they’ll do it. Where did she come from?
On if he’s a bad guy:
I’m not. From their depiction of what I am, I can see why people would think that but I’m also not going to bash the show and get into a verbal back and forth with my son’s mother over some people who really don’t know me and they don’t change anything in my life.
On if he’s in a good place with Emily:
I think so. I think we have a great relationship as far as being a mother and father or woman and man or whatever our situation is without a title. I think we’re in a good space communicating. She traveled with me for my birthday. She hadn’t really did much traveling with me at all, but I thought it was a time where we could hang out and get to re-getting to know each other. Now we’re at different ages. I’ve known her for years and now we have a son together; her daughter’s older. It’s a different situation so it’s kind of like regrouping but the show is entertainment, so they’re not going to show that.
On whether he watches the show:
No, I’ve never watched it. I’ve heard what people say about the show.
On if he wanted to do a family show:
I would be involved in a show that was something like “Run’s House.” I can’t reference T.I’s show because I’ve never seen it. A family show. Even the Kardashian’s to me is more family branded and structured. I wouldn’t do a “For The Love of Fabolous” show, no.
On how he keeps his personal life personal as a celebrity:
As a celebrity, you must have some type of peace of your personal life. Look at Jay-Z and Beyonce; everybody knew Jay and Beyonce were dating. They were sitting around at award shows together like they weren’t together for a while before they came out and said whatever. But your life doesn’t always have to be exposed. There are a lot of people whose personal lives aren’t exposed.
Angie: But your personal life has been exposed.
In a one-sided way. Everything may not be right in your personal life, so that’s another reason why you may also give everything. Not saying me, but I’m just saying general. If everything ain’t down to the T like you want it to be then that’s a reason for you not to put it on TV.
I always looked at Keyshia Cole’s show and I hope this doesn’t get taken the wrong way but I felt like some of her family was getting exploited because everybody’s making money. Sometimes you have to look and say “Dang, it’s kind of making them look crazy a little bit. Would I want my mom or my sister….” I’ll still have that morality in me. I wouldn’t want to exploit anyone in my family. My son or my son’s mother. I wouldn’t even want to do a show with any of that unless we all agreed together to do it.
