Charlamagne is known to push the envelope, which is why most celebs show up to The Breakfast Club knowing that there may be a few slightly uncomfortable moments. Former “Moesha” actor Fredro Starr, however, was not having it.
During the interview, while discussing Fredro’s acting days, Chalamagne referenced a prior comment made by Fredro where he claimed to have received oral favors from Brandy.
“And y’all had y’all acting money and everything up,” said Angela Yee. “Y’all were the first rappers/actors.”
“Fredro was getting head from Brandy,” Charlamagne chimed in.
Although he’s the one who released that information to the public, Fredro wasn’t too amused by Charlamagne resurrecting it.
“You need to stop with all that, b,” Fredro responded. “You need to stop with all that though. See, this dude right here—let that be what it’s gon’ be. Son, like you bringing up the past, b. Let’s move to the future though. What did you say? Should I say a lot of the sh– you said n—a?”
It was evident that Fedro was not comfortable discussing the comment, so the hosts moved on. It appeared that Fredro did as well, but apparently, he was still stewing. Nearly five minutes later, the Onyx rapper proceeded to go off on Charlamagne. The dispute began with Fredro asking Charlamagne about an incident where he was “punched in the eye” and then things escalated from there.
“Why we got a issue, me and you?” Charlamagne asked.
“Because you brought up some sh– on some slick sh–,” said Fredro, clearly still in his feelings about the previous conversation. “I ain’t with all that, b. I’m a real n—a, n—a.”
“You talking about the Brandy thing?” Charlamagne asked.
“Yeah, I’m talking about that!”
After awkwardly going back and forth, DJ Envy tried his best to steer the conversation in a different direction, but Fredro was already riled up.
“Nah, cuz he set the tone off with that bullsh–! Check ya n—a. He got checked! P—y a– n—a. N—as punched this n—a in the eye on TV and he trying to play me.”
