(AllHipHop Rumors) Irv Gotti has been in the game for a long time. He’s an O.G. for sure. His Murder Inc. Record label created mad hits in the early 2000’s. He helped make Ja Rule and Ashanti into superstars. But more than his beef for 50 Cent and G-Unit, Gotti regrets his falling out with Jennifer Lopez.
On BET’s Black Coffee, Gotti kept it real falling out with his former friend and collaborator. He claims that the main reason behind his crazy behavior was his drug use at the time. He details that ruining his relationship with J.Lo still hurts him.
"J.Lo. I talked crazy about her in an Elle magazine interview, when she asked me to give them quotes, because she was on the cover. This was around the time of [her singles], 'I'm Real' and 'Ain't It Funny.'
“I was high. I was probably on like, three ecstasy pills, which was the daily. That was like [my] breakfast. For three years I was high. All of those great records though we made, high as a motherf*****r. Not saying to do that children, that's just me."
Gotti said he was so mad at Tommy Mottola at the time that it spilled over to his interview with Elle magazine.
“So I hang the phone up, and literally within two minutes, I'm on 10 and I'm high, which is not a good mixture. So the phone rings and it's Elle magazine, and they say, 'We want to get some quotes, with you and J.Lo,' and I said some wild sh*t. She didn't deserve that."
When asked was the straw that broke the camel’s back in their relationship, Irv said, "They asked if 'I'm Real,' was about Diddy, and J.Lo told them it wasn't, but I was like, "Yes it is!" And I called her the B-word like an idiot. I was like, "That b**h is lying!" YIKES
Irv also said that he tried to make thing right. "I sent her flowers and roses. I apologized and I will continue to apologize for the rest of my life, and I will say, 'I'm a f****ing idiot.' But if she never trusts me again, I can't blame her. I'm an idiot. Like that one, that's my biggest regret."
