I would so hate if this is true, it is being reported that DJ Khaled had a temper tantrum after his album Father of Asahd wasn’t number one.
From Miami Herald:
According to Page Six, when Khaled heard from his label, Epic Records,that the album failed to debut at No. 1, he threw a tantrum in their offices.
“He stormed into Epic with an entourage,” a source told the NYC based media outlet. “He was angry and yelling. He threw a temper tantrum.”
A second source, an “industry insider” also chimed in about the star’s behavior.
“He was furious. There was some nasty stuff said. Publicly, he’s all about ‘positivity,’ but there is a mean side to him that people don’t see . . . He overhyped the record and blew it up as his biggest album ever.”
“FOA” did make the No. 2 spot (Tyler the Creator‘s “Igor” beat him on the Billboard 200 list), but as his fans know, Khaled prefers to be “da best.”
On Thursday, the 43 year old Miami resident posted a video of his index finger pointing straight up, like the number one. In the video he stands in front of his pool at his waterside mansion, silently showing off his gorgeous, million dollar view.
Despite his musical rankings (still holding this week at No. 2 just behind Billie Eilish’s “When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go?”), seems he’s doing OK to us.
A request for comment from his rep went unanswered.
Do y’all believe this story? That humble, nice guy persona never seemed real to me. All the extra hype is weird these days.
