Chile, you know we got industry ears. The street is telling us there is currently a rift between Tiny and Kandi because Tiny feels like Kandi is causing bad press and she doesn't want it to cause people to return their tickets (which many fans have threatened). She took it upon her self to release a statement on Insta concerning the WWHL interview that wasn't well received.
Kandi really did ruin that interview. She could have said that recording the new album is bad timing because she has so many things going on but she wishes them well. She didn't even have the decency to say that.
Tiny also felt slighted when Kandi announced that she and T.I. are still together. As you all know Tiny has not dropped the divorce but has asked for an extension of the court date (claiming because she needs an itemized list of T.I.'s investors).
Tiny is tired of Kandi causing the group bad press. She has said a number of times that the reunion happened "by mistake." Tiny disagrees with the way Kandi is airing out their dirty laundry. Kandi is so used to the RHOA environment and telling it all that she doesn't realize with a group you have to sometimes put up a united front.
Truth is Tiny is enjoying having her singing career back and getting out of T.I.'s shadow. So we understand why she decided to record with the girls. Kandi recently did an interview:
“It’s always drama,” admits Kandi, who won’t be recording new music with the rest of the R&B group. “We all think differently when it comes to handling business, or at least, the three of them think differently than me. It’s always them three against me, and We feel like I’m always made to be the villain. It’s really irritating and stressful.”
Kandi is upset with Tiny for doing the new album with "the girls." It seems Kandi has been the root of Xscape's problems and not the Scott sisters. We do think she envies LaTocha's voice and the fans' preference for her voice. We believe she also feels Tiny is siding with "the girls" and should always side with her because the sisters stick together.
Tamika has apologized to Kandi multiple times now. On the radio, in person, on the phone and even on their TVOne Unsung. Kandi holds on to a grudge for so long. LaTocha seems very conservative and like she is there to work not put up with Kandi's tantrums.
We like Kandi, but she clearly feels she has outgrown the group and doesn't want to be there. Se should give them their blessing to continue without her after this tour. Once they start doing shows overseas (sources tell us they have multiple offers in the UK and Asia) and figure out a work-around Kandi's verses they will do just fine as a trio.
