Future’s Baby Mama Brittni Mealy & Young Thug’s Fiancée Jerrika Karlae Argue Over Failed Business Collaboration
Two of Atlanta’s finest fashionistas are having it out on Instagram. In January of 2018, Future‘s baby mama – fashion designer, Brittni Mealy; and Young Thug‘s fiancee – influencer, Jerrika Karlae announced their joint business venture, Furgo. The line showcased eclectic faux fur coats and jackets, but the collab was short-lived.
Last night, (11/18/19) Jerrika Karlae took to Instagram live to spill the tea to her 1 million followers on why Furgo failed as a company. The fallout is seemingly spawned from Brittni’s ad promoting a faux fur jacket for her clothing line, Unicorn Universe USA.
“[Are you] an opportunist or you want money, ’cause of whatever? You see me as a quick lick, or what? What would be the reason? If I’m that bad of a business partner to you- what? Exactly! What he said, ’cause I’m the cash cow. ‘Cause you looked at me like the lick, and my dumb a** let you lick me. And you came up. What else? Your manufacturer that I so-called ran off on didn’t even make your stuff right. If your manufacturer didn’t make your stuff right, then what?”
Brittni Mealy didn’t take kindly to her former Furgo collaborator discussing business matter with social media. She explained that her Unicorn Universe jacket wasn’t a custom design, and that any boutique owner could sell it as their own. Her IG Story message read:
“@okaykarlae RIKA THIS IS SO IMMATUR THE INTERNET? YOU GOT MY # IF YOU DONT YOUR MOM DOES YOU DM ME TODAY I WROTE YOU BACK AND BEEN BUSY ALL DAY. A WHOLESALE JACKET ANYONE CAN GO BUY WE DIDNT DESIGN THIS JACKET FOR FURGO. ANY BOUTIQUE OWNER CAN GO GET THE SAME JACKET RIGHT NOW…ITS ALMOST DECEMEBR YOU HAVEN’Y HIT ME ABOUT FURGO ONCE THIS YEAR TILL TODAY AFTER you seen 1 wholesale jacket on unicorn! I Cant fo BUSINESS WITH YOU CAUSE EVERYONE KNOWS YOU HAVE TO BE HUNTED DOWN DONT PICK UP THE PHONE IM NOT DOING THAT. That’s why Furgo is no longer…Let’s not do this on the Internet you can reach me on my phone luv”
Jerrika replied with her side of the story:
“…ME and my team ran furgo…ask anyone in Atlanta that bought a jacket, who pulled up to meeth them ! The inventory was in my house so who was hard to reach ?!?! And if I was so bad as a business partner why do another business with me ?!!!…and YOU right I am ahrd to REACH! Every boss is ! But at the end of the day I put my MONEY UP THE SAME WAY YOU DID ! Your wrong flat out !”
Brittni continued, noting that considering the season, it’d be too late to market Furgo for 2019 and that her personal line’s inventory shouldn’t be Jerrika Karlae’s concern.
But, Future’s former bae wasn’t done. She bit back hard with accusations that Young Thug’s bride-to-be attempted to continue the lifestyle she’d grown accustomed to after betraying Thug’s professional trust.
Jerrika denied those claims.
Yikes! Whose side seems more truthful – Jerrika Karlae’s or Brittni Mealy’s? Let us know in the comments.
