Erykah Badu Shoots Down D.O.C. Reality Show Rumors

Erykah Badu Shoots Down D.O.C. Reality Show Rumors

A couple of weeks ago, news broke from veteran rapper the D.O.C. that he'd hopefully be starring in not one, but two reality shows. One, an already-confirmed series chronicling a highly experimental stem-cell surgery he plans to undergo in an attempt to repair the damage done to his voice from a car accident that cost him his career in 1989.

The other show, he divulged to The Dallas Observer, would follow him and his ex, singer/actress/producer Erykah Badu, as they live together and raise their seven-year-old daughter and Badu's two other children. He even went so far as to say he hoped the series would ultimately end in a wedding between himself and Badu.

It seems Badu didn't get the memo about his plans, however, as a statement from Badu's publicist revealed: "Erykah Badu and The D.O.C. share parental responsibilities for their daughter and their relationship as it regards that aim is very good. However, that is the full extent of their personal involvement and no romantic dynamic exists between the two. Moreover, Erykah has no plans to marry or have any sort of courtship with the D.O.C.

"Ms. Badu has no plans to allow a reality show to be filmed in her private Dallas residence or to include any of her children in the filming. Ms. Badu has no concrete plans further than a guest appearance in his reality show. The D.O.C.'s comments were either taken out of context, improperly interpreted, or reflective of his now, not-so-secret desires. Whatever the case, Erykah wishes D.O.C. well both spiritually and professionally."

Following this statement, the Dallas Observer confirmed that they reported their story from the D.O.C. just as he told it.
