Pretty Ricky Discuss Reunion, Spectacular's Grumpy Cat Creation And More On 'The Breakfast Club'

Following a sold-out performance at 2016's Soulquarious Festival, Pretty Ricky realized their fan base is more than ready for their return.

Following a sold-out performance at 2017's Soulquarious Festival, Pretty Ricky realized their fan base is more than ready for their return. During an interview with The Breakfast Club, the R&B group discussed why they decided to get back together.

"I think it was a timing type of thing," Pleasure P said. "You put so much work into something and it's like, 'I'll be damned if I don't get nothing out of what I worked towards.' We have a lot of fans out there, we left a lot on the table so it's like let's just do one last album, one last tour for the fans and we just put it together to do that." Baby Blue added, "I think our music is needed right now. Ain't no baby-making music coming right now."

Spectacular also talked about his profitable company, Adwizar Inc., which helps "companies and brands grow their social media following." He added that his business was deemed "the fastest-growing company at 1,600 percent growth within the last three years." One of his creations, he said, is the wildly popular Grumpy Cat meme, which he noted is worth $100 million.

The morning show hosts then asked the group how they reacted to Pleasure P's departure. Baby Blue said it began when the former approached him and said he wants to move out of their house, but, "'I'm not finna get out the group. I just wanna move out the crib, we still gonna do records.'" Baby Blue added that outside forces were the people with the issue "because they weren't finna be able to have as much control over him as before. But he was real transparent. We kept in touch the whole way, that's how we was able to put this back together."

Pleasure P also said his unhappiness with the management's handling of their funds inspired him to leave the group. "I don't even care when I left, I left when we were on top too," he said. "I just wasn't happy. I was like, 'fu*k this sh*t.' I rather do anything than this at the time. I never left to pursue a solo career, it was more off of money that I wasn't getting."

Watch below where they discuss whether they're on Love & Hip-Hop: Miami, why Spectacular made that grind video, a possible B2K and Day26 joint tour, and their new single "Good Girls."

Diddy Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit With Former Chef

Diddy has reportedly reached a settlement with his former personal chef in a sexual misconduct lawsuit that was filed in 2017, NBC Los Angeles reports.

The settlement stems from a lawsuit Cindy Rueda filed nearly two years ago. Rueda was reportedly Diddy's personal chef from Apr. 2015 to May 2016. She accused the Bad Boy mogul of sexual harassment and unfair wages. She claimed that she never received additional pay for extra work hours during her time of employment.

Additionally, she alleged that Diddy requested that Rueda serve breakfast to him and a guest in his bedroom. During those incidents, she said she was forced to see "Mr. Combs and his guest indisposed and engaged in sexual activity." Upon entering, she alleged that he would then yell and curse at her.

In Aug. 2017, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge sent Rueda's case to mediation outside of the court due to the terms of an agreement she previously signed as an employee for Diddy.

The terms or value of the settlement has not been disclosed at this time.

Eminem Continues To Fire Shots At MGK During Australia Concert

It looks like Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly's beef is still going strong. During Eminem's latest concert in Australia, the rapper called MGK a "c*cksucker."

It all started when Em's fans began chanting for him to play his 2018 diss record, "Killshot." Instead of performing the track however, the Detroit native said: "I would but I don't want to give that cocksucker any more fucking light."

"Make some noise for your f**kin' selves and make nothing for MGK," he added before continuing with his set.

Em's latest comments come months after his feud with MGK exploded in 2018. The beef ignited after Em addressed Machine Gun on his Kamikaze album, which prompted the Houston artist to return with "Rap Devil." Fans thought the beef had died down, but was later resurged with Eminem's "Killshot."

Check out Eminem's latest diss in the video below.
