In case you haven’t heard, Foxy Brown was booted from Tom Joyner’s Fantastic Voyage cruise last week.
The fiery rapper ( real name: Inga Marchand) has been known to pitch a fit every now and then, but apparently old school radio host Tom Joyner is not the one to be messed with!
Joyner explained on his show last Friday (March 25), that he kicked Brown off of the cruise after her bad attitude became too much of a hassle.
“We put Foxy off the cruise. Let’s just say she got put off. You had to really act a fool to get put off,” Joiner explained on air.
According to Joyner, Brown’s behavior was so bad that she had to be “sent to her cabin” and “locked in … but that wasn’t enough.”
Brown hit up twitter to dispute the morning show host, referring to him as “Grandpa” and stating that whatever he said on the radio was a lie because she got much love while on the cruise ship. [click HERE to read her tweets]
Foxy claimed she felt the best way to handle the situation was to head to Belize to vacation with her “pumpkin” Shyne.
Neither Joyner or Brown actually elaborated on the details, but now the TRUE story of why Foxy was booted from the cruise has finally been revealed!
