Birdman addresses rumors of Drake leaving Young Money

Birdman: 'Drake Down With The Team For Life'

Remember last summer when court documents leaked detailing Drake's lawsuit against Cash Money Records? It was around that time that rumors started to bubble up about Drake wanting out of his YMCMB contract, but that noise was quickly quelled. Ever since, however, doubt has lingered: does Drake eventually want to separate from Wayne and Baby?

Recently, Baby spoke with Shade 45's DJ Whoo Kid to set the record straight. On Drake originally signing:

“Drake was a fan before a friend. So he already was Cash Money Millionaire. And when opportunity came…I mean… maybe we put the most money on the table, which… that was my thing. I felt like he was a very talented young man and we saw a future with him. It was about him being comfortable. Drake made the decision at the end of the day. This is where he wanted to be. The money was there from the start but it was his decision.”

On rumors of Drake departing:

“Drake my little brother. I love him to death and he’s family. I know y’all hear all kinds of crazy shit. You can’t read none of that shit. Drake down with the team for life. He made that commitment when we did another situation, you understand me? So, I got nothing but respect for Drake and OVO camp. That’s family forever.”

On YMCMB artists branching out:

“Nicki emerge. Drake emerge. We support the emerge. We want them to do everything he done. He got the Nike. He got the Toronto Raptors. That’s what it’s about. It’s about you developing and becoming bigger. We all be bigger at that pernt. But if you got somebody not allowing you to be bigger, then it’s a problem and we don’t operate like that. We gon support you. We gon make sure the team support you. And we going to keep going, keep marching, and we gon get the next person to try to do that. And that’s how we been around for 22 years.”

Police Conducted Welfare Check On Wendy Williams Over Alleged Poisoning

Police reportedly conducted a wellness check on Wendy Williams at her New Jersey home earlier this year after an anonymous caller claimed the TV personality's husband, Kevin Winter was poisoning her, People reports.

The incident reportedly occurred during Williams' television hiatus in Jan. 2019. According to the police report obtained by People, police arrived at Williams' residence shortly after the call was made. Hunter reportedly answered the door, claiming his wife was recovering from an illness.

Authorities noted that Hunter was "hesitant" to let the police inside the house but eventually did. There, they found Williams in bed with a "blanket covering her from neck to toe." Williams told the cops she was recovering from a broken shoulder.

Williams reportedly "became tearful" when they asked if there was any truth to the poisoning allegation, but she ultimately denied that any wrongdoing was taking place. Police said Hunter "then responded saying something to the effect of there had never been any calls to his house regarding domestic violence."

While the couple might not have received calls to the house, there have been rumors of domestic abuse. Many assumed that was one of many reasons why Williams filed for divorce against Hunter earlier this month. Even so, the Williams maintained that she was leaving on good terms.

"I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs,” he said a recent episode of her self-titled show. "No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine."
