Matt Jordan Talks Peter Thomas Fight
Kenya Moore’s ex boyfriend, Matt Jordan, is now ready to share his side of the story. Over the weekend, footage of his fight with Peter Thomas went viral. During an interview with “The SCOOP With The Hip-Hop Socialite”, he speaks on what set him off during the sit-down at the radio station, the injury he says he sustained while trying to get the blade Peter pulled away from him, why he feels like the radio host somewhat instigated the situation and why he tried to have the release of the video blocked. Check out the excerpts below.
ON WHAT SET HIM OFF DURING THE INTERVIEW:
It was a few things that were said about Kenya…my relationship with Kenya. Again, I don’t check all of this stuff. I don’t know if just the fight is aired, or did they show the entire interview because it was like two or three times when he basically…what’d he say…oh, he said, ‘Kenya played me. She used you.’ Just anything with, you know what I mean, my ex, that was a huge trigger for me. He was basically speaking as if Kenya had no real interest in me outside of just using me as her boyfriend on that platform. And you know that kind of cut deep, from anybody, you know what I’m saying? When my real life relationship, my real heavy relationship was manipulated for something other than the intention of real love. So he said a few things like that.
ON HIS INJURIES:
I got a laceration on my middle finger and a frozen tendon. I can’t move my middle finger – I have to get surgery. Yeah, he stabbed me in the knuckle as I was trying to get the knife from his hands.
ON IF HE TRIED TO BLOCK THE RELEASE OF THE VIDEO OF THE ALTERCATION:
Yeah, the reason being…see I came up to Charlotte to salvage my image, and I will forward you the text messages that I sent to the young lady. I feel like authentically the girl has a good heart, but I know within media, the position that you guys are in as publicists and bloggers and interview whatever the word is, she instigated the situation a lot. She manipulated the words a lot in the interview. She twisted and turned things a lot. As you can see in that one short clip where she said, ‘You said Peter and Todd always get a chance to talk.’ And I said, ‘No I didn’t. I didn’t tell you that.’ And every time I spoke, the young lady just took my words totally out of context. That also frustrated me. But I say that to say, yeah, I did attempt to get the video blocked for one reason, and one reason only – my brand. So you got Matt acting crazy on Real Housewives – he’s breaking stuff, he’s yelling, he’s this, he’s violent. And now you got actual video proof of it. See I can’t blame this on Kenya, I can’t blame this on editing, I can’t blame this on Real Housewives, you understand what I’m saying? That was all me. So at that point I’m like, ‘All this crap is not a good look. It’s too much, it’s too much going on now.’ You know what I mean? It’s one thing you can always blame it on television, but this was straight raw, you know what I mean? And I left the radio station abruptly, and the young lady contacted me when I was on the highway. And like I said, I’ll forward you the text messages – she contacted me while I was on the highway and said, ‘Can I meet you somewhere? We need to meet.’ And I said, ‘No, I don’t do police.’ And she said, ‘No, no, no, we just need you to sign a release form. We need you to sign a waiver.’ And then I said, ‘Oh, okay. Can you just fax it to me somewhere?’ And she was just in such a rush – like she just wanted to show bad, and her thirst set off a red alert in my head, and I said oh I get what she’s trying to do. She’s trying to get the footage out immediately. And that’s when I was like, ‘On second thought, nah, I’m not going to meet you nowhere. I’m tired of ya’ll using and manipulating me, and using my image as just a piece of trash. No, and I refuse to sign the waiver, which to this day, I still have not signed a waiver or release for the to use my image in any kind of way.
I just felt like my brand and my image is, and still is, struggling, and a video of me getting into a violent altercation doesn’t help. But that coupled with Peter’s campaign for oh I got the best of Matt’ and then me falling silent made the masses believe oh, he got beat up. Oh sh*t Matt, you must’ve caught an L because you don’t want the video out, you haven’t said anything back, you know what I’m saying? But what you guys need to understand is Matt is the only one with a criminal charge. I’m from a place where when you get the police involved, you shut up now, you see what I’m saying? So it’s cute for Peter to run around, TMZ and the real overweight lady from StraightFromTheA, make sure you put that in there, and propagate and talk and say ‘Oh yeah, I got the best of him.’ You not the one with criminal charges, you see, I am. So no, you guys won’t be getting anything form me. You won’t get a comment, you won’t get a response because at the end of the day you pressed charges – you trying to put somebody in jail. Period, that’s what you’re trying to do. Especially our situation as men, we could have just handled it like men. So yeah, I did try to get it blocked because like I said, even right now still, my image is struggling sis, I’m drowning.
