Method Man and Wendy Williams

Wendy Williams has found herself at odds with another celebrity. This month, the media personality made headlines after claiming she had a one-night stand with Method Man during a radio interview. “I smoked a blunt with Method Man while I gave him a bath and it was a one-night stand,” she said. 

Williams dropped the bomb during a radio interview just two days before the debut of her Lifetime biopic, Wendy Williams: The Movie. In addition to causing a stir on social media, Williams’ comments prompted a fiery response from Method Man’s wife, Tamika Smith. 

While things are just starting to heat up between the two parties, this feud has been building since the early 2000s. Here’s a breakdown of what is going on between Wendy Williams, Method Man, and Tamika Smith.

In 2006, Wendy Williams revealed on her WBLS radio show that Method Man’s wife Tamika Smith had been diagnosed with cancer, despite the fact that the rapper and his wife wanted to keep that information private. Following Williams on-air revelation, Method Man appeared on The Breakdown, where he called out the personality for outing his family’s private information. “I’d like to thank Wendy Williams for bringing that to the masses ’cause she didn’t have to go on the radio and say that shit,” he said. “I like to keep stuff like that private but yeah, [my wife] was sick. That ain’t nobody’s fucking business. That’s her business, she didn’t want anybody to know about it. I respected her wishes right there.”

While he said that his wife was past the drama, Method thought it was “mad tacky and disrespectful” for Wendy Williams to share that personal information. “Her family members didn’t even know she was sick,” he added. “You can attack me anyway you want to. I’m in the entertainment business, but don’t attack my family.” He later called Williams a “fucking idiot” and scolded people for listening to her. “Stupid ass bitch… She don’t have any fans and the people who listen to her are just as fucking dumb.”
