Talk of the deteriorating businesss relationship between Tiara Thomas and Wale has been spreading ever since it was first announced that the “Bad” singer inked a record deal with famed producer Rico Love and Interscope Records. It’s been no secret that MMG rapper Wale had his sights set on Thomas and had intentions of signing her to his label, but unfortunately for him, he didn’t act quickly enough. Although he initially tried to keep whispers of bad blood to a minimum, everything got put on front street when his assistant took to her Twitter page to verbally attack and physically threaten Thomas for being disloyal. With the exception of a few subliminal tweets, both Tiara and Rico remained fairly quiet about everything. Well, until now, that is. Hip Hollywood caught up with the pair on the red carpet of the BET Awards. While Tiara revealed that she and Wale are now on good terms, Rico dropped the bombshell that it was Wale’s friend who insisted that he sign Tiara in the first place.
Tiara on the controversy:
“I know I have a good team that’s surrounding me. I know Rico. He’s awesome and super talented, so I don’t really pay attention to that.”
Tiara on her current relationship with Wale:
“Last week I talked to him. We don’t have any beef. We’re cool. We’re good.”
Rico on the alleged beef:
“It’s a lot of controversy surrounding [me signing Tiara], but the truth is that Wale’s people brought her to me. One of his best friends brought her to me and told me he would love for me to sign her. So it was a lot of things going around that weren’t really all the way true but you know, it was a blessing. So when they brought her to me almost a year ago before the whole record came out, I was already excited and I gave her an offer like this time last year. So it’s a great thing.”
