Strange celebrity feud alert!
Bet you never thought rapper DMX would have beef with a Beverly Hills housewife! Thanks to a Miami club appearance, this odd intersection of rap and reality television will collide, and TMZ reports that DMX is unhappy.
DMX and "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Erika Jayne are both scheduled to perform at HOUSE Nightclub in Miami on May 14, but there's a big misunderstanding about which star is "opening" that night.
Technically DMX is performing at the location from 5-11pm, while Erika's performance is slotted from 11-5am. Since it wasn't likely that their audiences overlapped, each event requires a separate ticket.
Some reports have billed Erika as the headliner, meaning DMX would be the "Real Housewives" star's opening act. This isn't flying with the 45-year-old rapper, who has no interest in being considered secondary to the 44-year-old dance music star's act.
Adding to the rapper's anger? The club caters to a predominantly gay crowd on some nights, so in some reports it looks like DMX is opening for Erika at a gay club. This upcoming night in question isn't one of the scheduled LGBT nights, but the connotation isn't sitting well with the legendary rapper.
Erika, who goes by Erika Girardi in her normal, day-to-day life, often performs to gay audiences. She joined "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" this last season, the show's sixth, and brought cameras and her fellow housewives along to catch one of her performances at a gay club in San Diego, California. On the series she shared that she's considered a gay icon, and often performs at LGBT events and festivals.
Mark Lowe, owner of HOUSE Nightclub, told TMZ that this is all a big misunderstanding, and the club is billing the events as separate. Mark also added that it would be "insulting" to list DMX as the opening act in this instance.
It's worth noting that DMX's show in question is already sold out, while Erika's portion of the night isn't quite yet.
Erika handled all of the drama with the women pretty well this season, so we can't wait to see how she deals with this one!
