The ongoing feud between Cam’ron and Joe Budden has reached new heights after the Dipset rapper took aim at Joe Budden’s co-host, Melyssa Ford, dubbing her an “expensive escort.” The controversy stems from recent comments made by Ford on The Joe Budden Podcast, where she raised concerns about the possibility of underage girls being present during a wild trip to a brothel that Cam’ron shared on the show.
In response to Budden defending Ford on his podcast, Cam’ron took to Instagram, reposting a clip with the title “Oh, she’s an expensive escort? How much, bro?” and adding a caption that suggested moving on from the situation. This comes after Cam’ron had previously threatened to have Ford deported back to Canada during an episode of his sports talk show It Is What It Is.
The feud initially ignited when Cam’ron shared a story about a past trip to a brothel, and Ford expressed concerns about potential underage girls being present. The co-hosts on The Joe Budden Podcast faced backlash for their reactions to Ford’s comments, with Budden stating, “I don’t know what you’re doing, but it’s disgusting what you’re doing”.
Cam’ron’s response escalated the situation, with the rapper denying the allegations and threatening to involve U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to have Ford deported. Ford later issued an apology, but Cam’ron rejected it, making further accusations against her, including a claim that she had once engaged in a paid encounter with Ice-T.
In response to Cam’ron’s actions, Budden called his bluff on his podcast, labeling the situation as “performative” and stating that he doesn’t engage in public disputes. He affirmed his support for Ford, emphasizing the responsibility of the podcast hosts to address issues with love.
As the feud continues to unfold, it remains to be seen how the legal implications may play out, with Cam’ron hinting at potential defamation of character lawsuits. The public dispute underscores the complexities and tensions surrounding the interactions between celebrities in the age of social media.
