The public is buzzing about Coi Leray’s collaboration with Nicki Minaj. However, there is a debate going on in the background of this celebration. Coi Leray’s relationship with her father appears to be hopeless. Coi Leray recently described her father Benzino as “bitter and evil,” alleging that he threatened her.
The family dispute of Coi Leray is being aired on social media. On “The Breakfast Club,” the “Blick Blick” rapper said that her father Benzino, the former co-owner of The Source, became “poor” after he was booted from the venerable hip-hop publication. As a result, she and her family faced financial difficulties.
“My dad lost The Source when I was like nine. Once it was gone, I was old enough to understand life and it was gone after that. Reality hit, we were broke, and we were figuring things out.”
After the interview aired, Benzino reportedly expressed his displeasure at his daughter’s attempt to expose him. Coi labeled her father “bitter and evil” in a series of tweets, alleging that he threatened her and her mother.
“My dad is texting my mom threatening her and me because I said he went broke on the breakfast club on the day of my album release.”
“I hate to bring this shit to social media but my father need help. Sorry if I offended you on breakfast club but don’t treatment me or my mom because you hate to admit that we went broke after the source.”
Coi has tried to keep her distance from her father because she believed that he is jeopardizing her career. Benzino, according to Coi, has not been a helpful father and has attempted to get her mother to participate in reality television against her will.
“Build a f*ckng bridge and get over it that’s why I don’t even like mentioning his name. That’s why I never mentioned his name coming into this industry cause he can’t get over his past and don’t even realize how much he damaging when he does this stuff.”
“He texting my mom threatening her talking about some watch. Grow up YOU WAS JUST TRYNA GET HER TO DO GROWING UP HIP HOP !! WE DONT WANT THAT LIFE !!!! She’s tryna be here for me and support me while you tryna find every way to beef with me and suck the life out of me I’m tired.”
“I’m your only f*cking daughter. You worried about being called broke on the day of my debut album. You ain’t even text me congratulations, you so bitter and evil. Ima pray for you.”
Despite the family strife, Coi is attempting to keep the moment she has fought so hard for from being ruined. Her debut album Trendsetter, which features Nicki Minaj, H.E.R., Yung Bleu, Fivio Foreign, Nav, Polo G, and others, will be released tonight. So be ready to experience it.
