Erykah Badu Denies D.O.C. Story


Singer/songwriter Erykah Badu has responded to comments made by rapper D.O.C. claiming that the two were in a serious romantic relationship. D.O.C. said that he was living with Badu and that they were planning to film a reality show about their life together. He also claimed that they were planning to marry someday.

Badu’s representatives have denied those claims.

“Erykah Badu and The D.O.C. share parental responsibilities for their daughter and their relationship as it regards that aim is very good,” said Paul Levatino, general manager and spokesman for her company, Badu World. “Erykah has no plans to marry or have any sort of courtship with the D.O.C.”

“Ms. Badu has no plans to allow a reality show to be filmed in her private Dallas residence or to include any of her children in the filming,” he continued. “Ms. Badu has no concrete plans further than a guest appearance in his reality show. The D.O.C.’s comments were either taken out of context, improperly interpreted, or reflective of his now, not-so-secret desires. Whatever the case, Erykah wishes D.O.C. well both spiritually and professionally.”
