Kandi Burruss Stands By Her Allegations Against Boyz II Men & The Way They Treated Her: It Was Disrespectful As F*ck!

Kandi Burruss is standing by her claims against the R&B group Boyz II Men and calls out Wanya Morris for shading her. Kandi Burruss recently shared a video to her YouTube page and addressed Wanya Morris of Boyz II Men for denying the rude way he and his group members allegedly treated her when they worked together in the early 2000s. During the 16-minute video, Kandi Burruss doubled down on her allegations against the group and provided more details into the situation. She said,

“I did so happen to see just a little clip of what Wanya said on, I guess his interview that he was doing, and clearly he did not understand why I was offended. Because the way he told the story is not how I felt okay. And then I noticed he tried to throw a little shade at the end, you need to be a housewife honey, but it’s all good.”

She continued and mentioned that she respects Boyz II Men as a group but that doesn’t change the fact that she had a bad experience while working with them.

“I love the group Boyz II Men as far as them being artists, I think they’re amazing and I have no shade about them, their career, or anything like that. But what I will say is I did have a bad experience.”

According to Kandi, when she worked with the group everything was fine until it was time to discuss business and decide how they were going to divide up the ownership percentage of the two records, ‘Good Guy’ and ‘Beautiful Women’, they worked on together.

“I just said ‘hey guys, you know, how do you normally do your splits?’ And so, instantly [their] attitude shifted.”

Kandi also claimed that Boyz II Men tried to cheat her out of the ownership percentage that was due to her for the work she did on the song ‘Good Guy’ and that someone in the R&B group called her manager at the time and said,

“And I can’t believe she even fixed her mouth to ask us about some splits.”

Towards the end of her video, Kandi said that she’s no longer holding grudges about how she was treated but it definitely happened.

“Since then, you know, I mean I definitely have seen them, you know. We definitely have [spoken]. So it’s not like a thing of me holding grudges. But if someone asked me what was my worst experience, I’m sorry that is the truth. And you can feel how you want to feel. But maybe you don’t realize, or maybe you don’t even remember Wanya how you came off at that time but you did. And those things were said, and I did take it that way, you know. I didn’t imagine it, okay. I did not imagine it and it definitely happened. It was disrespectful as f*ck!”

As previously reported, last month during a virtual interview with singer Eddie Levert, Kandi Burruss was asked who was the most difficult artist or group she’s had to work with. The RHOA star replied to the question and revealed that she didn’t have a good experience while working with Boyz II Men.

“I hate to do it, I hate to do it. Ain’t no love lost, I mean, this is 100 years later, so it doesn’t even matter. But yeah, I had a bad experience in the studio with Boyz II Men.”

“I don’t think I’ve ever been disrespected like that before in a studio in my life. It was crazy, really. But at the end of the day that was a long time ago. Clearly, you know, we’ve moved past that or whatever.”

Boyz II Men group member Wanya Morris didn’t seem too fond of Kandi’s allegations about the way he and his group members treated her. He responded to her claims during his own separate interview and said they weren’t true. He also said,

“We’ve been taught you write [a song] and you split [songwriting credits] down the middle, that way there’s no discrepancies… we’re from the old school. We’re from the ‘aye, you write a lyric, I’ll write a lyric’… It’s really about just building this whole thing together.”

“[Kandi] can’t get on here and sing better than Jayna Brown. She can’t get on here and sing better than Liamani [Segura]… but I respect her opinion and I respect what she says.”
