Despite her name not appearing in the name of the band, DJ Spinderella (aka Deidra Roper) was an integral part of Salt-N-Pepa’s success. After all, without her, who would they have shouted at to cut it up one time at the beginning of their seminal hit, “Let’s Talk About Sex“? Still, Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton were obviously ok with just any old random person hitting “play” on their laptop to cue up a 100% nasty 90s R&B beat, because they fired Spinderella back in 2019. Then Spinderella sued Salt and Pepa for back pay, which she claims she was scammed out of. The lawsuit entered mediation, and the whole situation was a mess. And because of the legal mess, Spinderella was left out of the making of Salt-N-Pepa. And she’s more than a little pissed off about that.
Spinderella claims that after years and years of cutting it up one time, she was fired from Salt-N-Pepa in January through an e-mail right before they were about to go on tour with New Kids on the Block. Spin claims that Salt-N-Pepa owes her lots of money in unpaid royalties so she sued their alleged scamming asses, and recently asked a judge to give her immediate relief, but instead, the judge decided to extend this messiness by ordering it into mediation.
If Salt-N-Pepa thought they would be seasoning their own bank accounts with ex-member DJ Spinderella‘s piece of their massive fortune, they better think again! Because even though they gave Spin her walking papers late last year, they allegedly didn’t want to part with the cash they owed her. Well, I guess they thought Spin would just accept it and fade off into the background. But instead, she’s decided to hire a lawyer and take those deceptive broads to court! And she has accused them of scamming her out of money for years.
I love social media. Not only because you can talk a whole bunch of shit from the confines of your own home without having to deal with lawsuits, but because celebrities, who also love social media, will air all of their business in a heartbeat! This was the case with legendary hip hop pioneers Salt-N-Pepa, who along with DJ Spinderella, have been providing sexy hits for three decades. But now, according to Spinderella, she’s been ejected from the group by none other than Salt-N-Pepa themselves!
The Billboard Music Awards were last night and if the red carpet is any indication, it lived up to it’s name because most stars looked as bored as can be. With very few exceptions, most of the night’s looks were uninspired and devoid of whimsy. Nick Jonas (above) looks like he just showed up for his shift at Applebees and still needs to go get his flair from his locker and take a quick shot at the bar before getting started. He’ll be with you in a minute, ok?
Instagram can be a minefield waiting to explode in your face if you’re not careful. Especially if you are fucking somebody else’s man. Apparently, the spicier half of Salt-N-Pepa, (born name: Sandra Denton) said “get your lips wet cuz it’s time to have Pep” to aspiring rapper and former college football star Aundre Dean. Problem is, Aundre is married to a teacher named Jordyn Taylor who’s currently pregnant with their second child.
