Erykah Badu did not rekindle with D.O.C. as reported. The soul diva slammed the reports via her publicist, insisting they are merely co-parenting their child, seven-year-old daughter, Puma.
The rumors began swirling last week after D.O.C. gave an interview to The Dallas Observer implying he had reunited romantically with Badu, allegedly claiming he is living with the “Window Seat” hitmaker and wants to film their family for a reality show.
On the contrary, Badu issued a statement via her spokesperson, insisting she has no interest in getting back with her ex.
“Erykah Badu and The D.O.C. share parental responsibilities for their daughter and their relationship as it regards that aim is very good. Erykah has no plans to marry or have any sort of courtship with the D.O.C.,” says Paul Levatino, spokesperson for Badu’s company Badu World.
“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. 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.”
