Rumor Control: No Lady Saw And Tifa Beef
Dancehall reigning queen Lady Saw made gossip blog headlines earlier this week with allegations that she and fellow dancehall star Tifa are beefing over an alleged affair.
According to reports, a blog known to publish scandalous stories ignite the rumor claiming that Lady Saw’s boyfriend John John knocked up Tifa. But Saw said there is no truth to the story.
“There was a rumour on a website that ‘ants was in my milk’, and people were saying my boyfriend John John had a next girl pregnant. Then after I performed on Magnum Kings and Queens, I heard about the rumour with Tifa. John John would never do that, he would never sleep with a next artiste because he knows that would be disrespectful to me,” Lady Saw said.
Saw said a recent interview she did was spliced to make it seems she was calling out Tifa and Spice.
“They asked me about Spice and Tifa, and then cut up the interview and put in the part where I said ‘nobody can walk in my shoes’,” Lady Saw said. “I am very disappointed about the interview. Spice is a good friend of mine and to cut up the interview like that hurt me deeply.”
Tifa also downplay the rumors calling them “ludicrous.”
“Rumours were circulating about me dating and being pregnant for Lady Saw’s boyfriend and everything spiralled out of control,” Tifa told the Star. “I was then hinted to the fact by persons that this was all part of a plot against me. All of those allegations are ludicrous and I don’t even have a phone number for this man. People were querying my bookings due to the fact that persons believed I was pregnant. I can’t have this nonsense affecting my shows.”
Tifa said there is no beef with Lady Saw: “I do not have any beef with Lady Saw and I respect her as a ‘fore-mother’ who paved the way for artistes like me.”
