Gigionthat.com has learned, the self-proclaimed “very rich bitch” #NeneLeakes, has been dropped from the upcoming #XSCAPE tour over her recent “joke” about rape.
The R&B group made the announcement on Thursday, October 12, that they won’t be moving forward with their collaboration with the Bravo star.
Like many, we were dismayed by the recent remarks made by our talented colleague and friend NeNe Leakes,” they wrote in a statement to TMZ. “As a result, we have decided to no longer proceed with her participation on our tour.”
“It was an unfortunate incident for which NeNe has since apologized and we wish her the best as she navigates this very difficult period. As strong supporters of all women, we know this decision is what is best,” they continued. “Our hearts go out to all female victims and we stand with you! This tour is for and about our fans and we want to provide an entertaining and enjoyable experience for every single person who attends. As always, we are grateful for the love and support and we look forward to seeing all of you at The Great Xscape tour.”
There’s no word on whether someone else will be brought in to replace Leakes.
The Great Xscape tour kicks off in November.
