During a recent interview with Black Coffee via BET Digital, music producer Irv Gotti has shared his thoughts about what he did to J.Lo and his regrets, how he actually helped 50 Cent’s career and how Mary J. Blige’s “My Life” helped him get through the toughest times. The star also gives his opinion on the Taylor Swift & Scooter Braun drama.
The producer says he has made many mistakes in his career and also regrets working with Jennifer Lopez. He said:
“I’ve had a ton of misses. What people don’t see is the misses. I’ve got a Goddaughter Rickey, she’s in the business, and she’s always like, ‘You doing it Uncle, you doing it!’ I said, ‘Rickey because you don’t see the thousand no’s. You just see the one yes.’ But I don’t wear the no’s because I’ma run through that. I have made some mistakes, I have definitely failed a million times.”
He continued about the list of regrets:
“J.Lo. I talked crazy about her in an Elle magazine interview, when she asked me to give them quotes, because she was on the cover. This was around the time of [her singles], ‘I’m Real’ and ‘Ain’t It Funny.’
I was high. I was probably on like, three ecstasy pills, which was the daily. That was like [my] breakfast. For three years I was high. All of those great records though we made, high as a motherf*****r. Not saying to do that children, that’s just me.”
Irv Gotti gave more details discussion with J.Lo. He said:
“I got into an argument with Tommy Mottola about ‘Ain’t It Funny,’ and [rapper] Cadillac Ty and him not servicing the record with Ty on it. So I’m going in on Tommy, and Tommy said some f***ed up s**t, so I’m on 10.
So I hang the phone up, and literally within two minutes, I’m on 10 and I’m high, which is not a good mixture. So the phone rings and it’s Elle magazine, and they say, ‘We want to get some quotes, with you and J.Lo,’ and I said some wild sh*t. She didn’t deserve that.
They asked if ‘I’m Real,’ was about Diddy, and J.Lo told them it wasn’t, but I was like, “Yes it is!” And I called her the B-word like an idiot. I was like, “That b**h is lying!”
He also mentioned that he was trying to fix their friendship all year long. He continued:
“I sent her flowers and roses. I apologized and I will continue to apologize for the rest of my life, and I will say, ‘I’m a f****ing idiot.’ But if she never trusts me again, I can’t blame her. I’m an idiot. Like that one, that’s my biggest regret.”
