Patti LaBelle Assumed Jazmine Sullivan Hated Her: My Feelings Were Hurt

Patti LaBelle acknowledged that her judgment of Jazmine Sullivan was wrong.

In a recent interview with Drink Champs, singing mogul Patti LaBelle recalled feeling like singer Jazmine Sullivan, 35, disliked her. Patti LaBelle said:

“I thought Jazmine Sullivan hated me.”

The 78-year-old shared:

“Lemme say something. Last week, she made my heart pound, hard. She called me. The same gentleman, Marquese, who made this outfit and the outfit that I wore for Essence last couple weeks ago, he’s good friends with Jazmine. So he said ‘Jazmine and I always used to talk about ‘who’s coming to Patti LaBelle’s party first? You or me?’”

Patti continued:

“So she’s always had this love for me but whenever I would see her, she’s shy and I would give her all these props and stuff and I’d say ‘baby girl don’t like me.’ My feelings were hurt until last week.”

Patti added:

“When we talked on the phone she said ‘Patti LaBelle you’re my everything.’ She said ‘I love you so much I get shy when I’m around you.’ So you see how things are misunderstood in this business so ugly business and sometimes people wanna make us hate each other and say ‘oh, she don’t like her.’”

Patti shared:

“Well Jazmine and I are recording soon. You know, after 15 years I haven’t recorded. So I’m doing stuff with her and a bunch of other sweeties and I just wanted to clarify that for me, because I was holding this thing that she didn’t like me, she loves Patti LaBelle.”

As previously reported, Drink Champs released a trailer of the Godmother of Soul on their show admitting that she probably said too much on the show but it cleansed her soul. LaBelle said:

“I cleansed myself today on this show. I said a lot of things that I probably shouldn’t have, but I don’t care. I said it and I feel good about being here.”
