Erykah Badu Denies Romantic Involvement With The D.o.c.
During an interview with The Dallas Observer last week, former Fila Fresh Crew member, The D.O.C., implied that he was getting back with his ex, Erykah Badu, and that the pair would be featured together in his forthcoming reality series, 'I Got My Voice Back'...
However, Badu was quick to distance herself from The D.O.C.’s claims and instructed her representatives to release a statement explaining that she has no intention of rekindling her relationship with The D.O.C., nor does she want a key involvement in his reality TV series.
The D.O.C, real name Tracy Lynn Curry, claimed that his reality series would focus on his family life with Badu and their 7-year-old daughter, Puma, and the series finale would see the pair getting married.
Badu’s representative, Paul Levatino, dismissed Curry’s claims: "Erykah Badu and The D.O.C. share parental responsibilities for their daughter and their relationship as it regards that aim is very good. However, Erykah has no plans to marry or have any sort of courtship with the D.O.C. Ms. Badu has no plans to allow a reality show to be filmed in her private Dallas residence or to include any of her children in the filming.
"Ms. Badu has no concrete plans further than a guest appearance in his reality show. The D.O.C.'s comments were either taken out of context, improperly interpreted, or reflective of his now, not-so-secret desires. Whatever the case, Erykah wishes D.O.C. well, both spiritually and professionally."
