Rapper-turned-television & radio personality Joe Budden has been garnering a lot of media attention as of late for all the wrong reasons.
First, his former fiancee – fellow ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Cyn Santana – had long been rumored to have suffered physical abuse at the hands of the emcee. Talk around the predicament picked up again when leaked audio from a phone conversation between the two saw her assert he ‘chased and dragged her.’
As if that wasn’t enough, the ‘Pump It Up’ performer was atop headlines again for reportedly pleasuring his dog through masturbatory acts.
With the heat from both topics rising, Budden – tired of the hoopla – took to social media to address them head on.
See what he said inside:

The dog masturbation conversation started after Cyn Santana’s alleged court documentation surfaced online. Inside, the reality TV starlet reportedly addressed his alleged drug problem and other concerning behavior including eyebrow-raising behavior with a canine.
“Defendant has a male dog whom he loves and showers with attention,” allegedly reports Cyn in the legal paperwork. “While most of Defendant’s interactions with the dog are appropriate, I have observed on several occasions one particularly bizarre behavior by Defendant. Without putting too fine a point on it, suffice to say that Defendant has not only expressed concern for the dog’s lack of a sexual partner, but has personally assumed responsibility for relieving any pent-up canine sexual tension. Defendant, for reasons I cannot fathom, has personally masturbated the dog. Defendant repeatedly states that he sees this function as his responsibility since there are no ‘b-tches’ around to provide a sexual outlet for the dog.” [click here to read the full document]
What’s worse, Joe seemingly admits to the disturbing action in the video below where he says:
“Why do I always want to make the dog feel good by playing with their privates?”
A week ahead of Santana’s assertion of abuse, fellow ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Tahiry Jose came forward with abuse allegations against Joe.
In a tell-all interview with ‘Hollywood Unlocked’ (click here to watch), Jose says Joe pushed her down a flight of stairs, hit her on the nose, dragged her by her ankles, and more.
All of the above began spiraling around the time Budden’s Spotify deal came to an unexpected close. The negative press certainly increase difficulty for the one-time hitmaker to garner a deal as promising.

Joe isn’t the only one addressing the shenanigans.
In his lengthy clap back, Joe asserted Santana’s friend ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Raqi Thunda was behind the drama – an accusation Cyn seemingly (yet indirectly) supports.
As seen in the video above, she says the person who leaked the phone audio was a confidant but ‘they completely betrayed my trust.’
She also stated:
“I confided in someone that i considered a sister. I confided in someone that, in my eye looked like someone that was genuinely trying to help me and my son and and just helped me figure my life out, you know.”
