: MediaTakeOut.com has learned that last week Tamika Scott (formerly of the group Xscape) was a special guest on NYC’s Hot 97’s Miss Jones in the Morning Show – and she dropped some bombs.
Tamika was reportedly furious with the way Jermaine Dupri described the break up of Xscape in his new book Young, Rich, and Dangerous: The Making of a Music Mogul. In Jermaine’s book, the mogul describes the group as “growing apart,” but according to Tamika, there was a whole lot more to the story.
MediaTakeOut.com learned that Tamika told Miss Jones the real reason the group broke up was that Kandi (photo’d below) began sleeping with Jermaine Dupri. And Tamika believes that Jermaine and Kandi’s romance devastated the group.
The former Xscape singer claims that since Kandi was sleeping with the group’s boss, she thought she was entitled to more solo time. But Jermaine, too his credit, stuck with his instincts and kept LaTocha on as the group’s lead singer.
But that was too much for Kandi to take. According to Tamika, Kandi subsequently quit – causing Jermaine to disband the group.
