Bow Wow is denying reports that he’s on the outs with B.E.T. after a strange report claimed he was caught using a company credit card to make his child support payment.
Reports circulated this week that the rapper had been fired from 106 & Park for misusing company funds. When network executives found out about the spending spree, they reportedly canned Bow Wow.
But serious doubt was cast on the report, which came from the site CreamBmpDaily. For one, the report contained some seemingly odd quotes from B.E.T. executives.
“He want people to start calling him Bow Wow, but still acting like he got the ‘Lil’ in front of his name” Says one 106 & Park executive who reportedly watched the rapper being escorted off B.E.T. property.
“I don’t care what video vixen he decided to skeet in, B.E.T. money, is B.E.T.’s money,” added a senior accountant quoted as Richard Payme (Pay Me). “I’m driving a used Honda and his daughter got a toy Bentley for Christmas, ain’t that a b***h?”
The reports gained such steam that Bow Wow himself had to respond. When one of his fans asked him on Twitter to “clear it for his fans,” Bow Wow responded:
“Clear what? That ill see yall at 6pm tomorrow live on TV like i do err day whats changed?,” Bow Wow tweeted January 23.
Readers who looked a little closer at the initial report may have saved themselves the trouble. CreamBmpDaily publishes satirical news stories, although that hasn’t stopped them from being taken seriously in the past. In October the outlet ran a report that Miley Cyrus was pregnant by rapper Juicy J, which again crossed over into real news outlets.
In December the website also published a story claiming that rapper Ja Rule was leaving his wife to pursue a relationship with his former prison cellmate. This one even got Ja himself to respond, which he did with a Twitter picture displaying his middle finger.
The rumors that Bow Wow had been fired for using his B.E.T. credit card to pay $30,000 in child support cleared itself up when the rapper was back on the air on 106 & Park.
