Ari Lennox scolded Joe Budden for being obsessed with her in an Instagram Live rant. The Dreamville artist unleashed a flurry of insults after Budden criticized her for airing out her frustrations with Rod Wave’s tour.
“I don’t know what Joe Budden’s obsession is with me,” Ari Lennox said. “But what I will say is that somebody needs to tell him to stop touching them dogs. Can y’all let him know that? Tell him to stop touching them dogs. ‘Cause I don’t understand why he’s so obsessed. Like why are you so obsessed? And why was you touching them dogs. Like you’re weird. He’s weird and he’s gross. He has smoke mouth. He’s disgusting and he’s a failure.”
Lennox’s remarks referenced an old rumor about Budden sexually stimulating his dog. Later in the livestream, the singer said Budden “never validated the truth.” She questioned why Budden refused to stop talking about her.
“There’s a million people to talk about in life,” she said. “Like I can never just express what’s going on with me without him coming from behind – I don’t know – the trash, the landfill that he lives in to say something. He always has to say something. And I don’t know why.”
Lennox considered filing a lawsuit against Budden. She mentioned the idea of following Cardi B’s lead, alluding to the rapper successfully suing vlogger Tasha K for defamation.
“I don’t know what it is or what it will take,” Lennox said. “Like maybe I have to sue him. Is that what I have to do? Like get on my Cardi B s### and like really just spend the bread to shut his smoke mouth up because he’s disgusting. And he’s a lame … I should literally just drop $20K to sue him.”
