DaniLeigh fires back at comedian B. Simone after speaking out over reports she was asked not to film the Wild ‘N Out episode, in which the singer guest-starred due to her two relationships with DaBaby.
In a recent interview with The Tamron Hall Show, Simone confirmed the rumor that she had to sit out the episode. “It’s true, but we will have mercy for this situation. I don’t agree with this, but I particularly understand; You know it is her [DaniLeigh] not that mature so we’ll just have mercy on them and move forward.
Simone has been a recurring member of the comedy sketch show since season 9. While she has left and returned for a few seasons, Simone is a prominent member who usually makes viewers laugh.
DaniLeigh decided to break her silence following Simone’s testimony, defending her actions by requesting Simone’s absence and expressing that it was the safeguard of her peace.
The singer said in an Instagram Live: “Me and B. Simone aren’t cool so I just asked, my team asked if it’s cool that she’s not doing the episode I’m doing. With all due respect, it was never anything to say, ‘I’m a diva that I don’t want’. I thought it would be more mature if we didn’t sit next to each other at a show, which makes it insanely awkward and uncomfortable.”
She continued, “I protect my peace. I protect my heart in a situation. It wasn’t petty.”
DaniLeigh shares a child with DaBaby and rumor has it that B.Simone was also dating the rapper.
When rumors first surfaced that the comedian was left out of the episode, she was backing the Baby on Baby rapper’s new song, “Boogeyman,” which suggests he was intimate with Grammy Award-winning actress Megan Thee Stallion by showing her a clip of him shared video on her Instagram story.
She also captioned the clip with a goat emoji calling the 30-year-old rapper one of the “greatest of all time.”
A source told Hollywood Unlocked, “Leigh had a strong feeling that something was going on between them and briefly expressed those feelings to the executive producers who were making the big decision.”
However, drama quickly formed behind the scenes and it was reported that DaniLeigh “urged the producers to pull B. Simone for their episode simply because she [allegedly] assumed the comedian slept with her baby daddy DaBaby.”
The author of Baby Girl: Manifest The Life You Want has been vocal about her crush on DaBaby in the past. As the show entered its 15th season, the cast welcomed DaBaby as a guest star and Simone’s fangirl dreams came true. Simone constantly referenced DaBaby in most of her jokes throughout the episode, and was even featured as a love interest in his song “Find My Way Back” a few months later.
While nothing was ever publicly going on with Simone and DaBaby, Leigh revealed to fans during her live view of text messages between the two.
“Recently she just did a whole diss song about me. I didn’t say anything about it, I saw text messages between him [DaBaby] and I didn’t tell her about it and that was it.”
Leigh and DaBaby had a very tumultuous relationship. Things went left in 2021 after the “Bop” rapper called the police about his child’s mother and threw her out of his home.
Since their very public split, DaniLeigh has spoken out about her relationship with him. “It was toxic,” she told Angie Martinez in her “No Filter” interview.
“He’s got his little issues and stuff, so we broke up for a month and then got back together.”
The singer added that he has yet to apologize to her for all the pain and hurt he has caused.
