The first fight of the BET Awards almost took place last night when Busta Rhymes got into the face of a popular radio personality, and had to be held back from putting hands on him. According to several sources, Busta approached Power 105.1 Breakfast Club host, Charlamagne, at NOBU in Los Angeles over some mess that happened 8 years ago. Huh?
According to our source, Busta was upset over an interview with his baby mama and his son that took place on the Wendy Williams radio show in 2004. For those that don’t know, Charlamagne used to work for Wendy Williams a few years back, but according to him, he was not working with Wendy in 2004 when the interviews happened.
Artist manager James Cruz had to hold Busta Rhymes back from body slamming Charlamagne, while music executive Bu Thaim had to hold Charlamagne back. Crazy! But why wait 8 years to approach Charlamagne, and why not just confront Wendy Williams about it? SO weird.
When asked about the almost fight, Charlamagne told Vlad TV, “Arguing. Acting like we wanted to do something to each other but neither of us made a move. That’s why I don’t talk to niggas after 5PM.”
There must be more to this story. I’ll keep my ears open and update you if I hear anything else.
