If this picture was representative of Vivica A. Fox’s life, you could say she’s waving goodbye to her business partner along with all the gays she wanted to deny lap dances to.
Last week, Vivica A. Fox got in a bit of trouble while promoting Vivica’s Black Magic, the Lifetime reality show documenting the launch of her male stripper review in Las Vegas. Vivica was asked if gay guys could get a lap dance too and she replied, “Aw, hell no!” Vivica claimed her club was for the ladies. Vivica took more shit online for that “hell no” than she has taken needles to the face, and she eventually tried to backpedal.
Vivica swore on Twitter that she was a supporter of the LGTB community and that all could enjoy her show.
Sure! I've been a FRIEND n supporter of the LGBT community! Didn't mean 2 offend and I'm woman enough 2 apologize! My show is 4 all 2 enjoy? https://t.co/RI0LR6xoek

Despite apologizing and acting like she was totally on board with dudes slipping dollar bills into her dancer’s g-strings, Vivica’s business partner Jean-Claude LaMarre wants little to do with her. Jean-Claude tells TMZ that he’s cutting ties with her professionally, and of course it’s all because of that “Aw, hell no“.
“The comments were out of order, and it does not represent our attitudes toward the LGBT community. All are welcomed. Vivica speaks for herself, not the business or the show.”
Vivica first worked with Jean-Claude when he put her in his movie Chocolate City, which was then spun-off into Vivica’s Black Magic. Jean-Claude will remain an Executive Producer of VBM. Jean-Claude tells TMZ that he wants VBM to be successful, but he doesn’t want to work with her anymore.
I don’t know how Jean-Claude is going to keep working on Vivica’s Black Magic and not work with her. That feels like it’s going to get complicated. Maybe they can send production notes back and forth to each other by tucking them into the crack of a dancer’s ass. Not only will they keep the show running without having to see one another, but they’ll be able to bounce quarters off that carrier stripper’s ass from all the walking and clenching they’ll be doing. There, everybody wins!
