Grab your popcorn and get ready for the juicy details!
Anita Baker vs. Babyface
In a shocking turn of events, Anita Baker has decided to kick Babyface to the curb and go solo for the remainder of her “Songstress Tour.” The news hit fans like a thunderbolt, and both artists released statements expressing their disappointment. Babyface couldn’t hide his sadness, saying, “I am saddened by the news that Anita Baker has decided to remove me from ‘The Songstress Tour.’ It’s unfortunate and disheartening to see how things have played out via social media.” Ooh, the tension is palpable!
The Alleged Verbal Abuse
But what led to this sudden split? Well, according to Baker’s Twitter rant, she claims to have endured cyberbullying, verbal abuse, and even threats of violence from Babyface’s fanbase. That’s right, she’s pointing fingers at the die-hard supporters of her former tour mate. Baker took to social media to spill the tea, stating, “After silently enduring cyberbullying/verbal abuse & threats of violence from the fan base of our special guest/support act, in the interest of personal safety, I will continue ‘The Songstress Tour’ alone.” Whew, things just got real!
The Twitter Wars
As if the allegations weren’t enough, Baker didn’t hold back when it came to calling out Babyface and his followers. She specifically addressed a tweet to him, urging him to “call off” his boys, whom she affectionately referred to as “Kenny’s Crazies.” It seems like the feud between these two musical powerhouses is reaching new heights, and Twitter is the battleground for their war of words. Who needs reality TV when you have artists feuding on social media?
Technical Issues and Show Changes
The tension between Baker and Babyface had been simmering for a while. It all started when Babyface’s opening set was unexpectedly cut from a show at the Prudential Center in New Jersey due to reported technical issues. Baker expressed her apologies to fans, but the incident seemed to mark the beginning of the end for their tour partnership. The backstage drama continued to escalate, leading to the shocking split we see today.
