After backlash from the Drink Champs interview, Ja Rule posted a message on Instagram condemning Irv Gotti for his comments about his 20-year-old relationship with Ashanti.
“Brotherly love… The last few days have been very turbulent for me but it’s time to land the plane. I love my sis I love my bro but I DO NOT condone or agree with the behavior nor the way Gotti handled things on drink champs I hope y’all understand how uncomfortable this is for me being in the middle of something I wish to not be,” he wrote.
“Going forward all I ask is to be left out of this please and thank you!!! Sincerely Switzerland Bennett.”
Ashanti commented on the post with several love hearts and high five emojis.
Gotti made headlines again this week when he claimed Ashanti “ran like a cockroach” when the feds came for him in 2005.
“When the feds hit, she ran like the cockroaches when you turn the lights on,” he said. “She was ready to get the f-ck off of the Murder Inc. label and she was ready to abandon me, the person who made her. And yes I can say I made her. How do you know I can say that firmly? The minute I stop making her records. She has not made a hit since.”
