You might have thought Mariah Carey's performance was the talk of the night, but the REAL event went down on the red carpet before the BET Awards even started!
We like to think of the red carpet as a dramz-free zone, but it seems former Celebrity Apprentice star Claudia Jordan didn't get that memo.
While doing press for the event, Claudia apparently got a little out of control when her former All-Star Celebrity Apprentice costar Omarosa popped onto the scene.
The shizz somehow quickly got stirred and before people knew it Claudia was accusing Omarosa's mom of assault! She even tweeted about the supposed punch:
That's one MAJOR statement! But she didn't stop there.
Claudia then apparently hit Omarosa with a damn low blow to get back at her for the alleged punch. Our source overheard Claudia revealing what she had said to the former reality TV star in response to the confrontation:
"What's it like shacking up in Michael [Clarke Duncan]'s house? 'Cause I know you're squatting!"
But Claudia wasn't the only one getting chatty after this so-called assault. While she didn't - oh, we don't know - take the matter to security so it could be handled, her rep went around pitching the punching story to press on the red carpet!
Girl should know by now that carrying on like that to get some press time won't make people believe you!! LOLz!
And from what we hear, we probably shouldn't believe her because Omarosa's momma apparently wasn't the one getting physical, it was Claudia!
Another source revealed:
"Claudia shoved Omarosa’s mother … Omarosa didn’t even see anything happen because she was on the CNN platform giving an interview. But security grabbed Claudia and made her leave the carpet."
Still need more to judge for yourself??
Omarosa gave us an EXCLUSIVE statement about the friggin' cray cray dramz:
"Her story is absurd and it keeps changing and getting more dramatic. I truly am deeply saddened by Claudia Jordan decision to create drama with my Mother where there is none. I am not surprised with all of Claudia's financial problem's , bankruptcy, IRS issues etc…that she is looking for a an opportunity for a pay day. We will not feed into her media ploy."
It's being reported all the women filed police reports after the incident.
We just hope everyone involved is now doing okay…
…and we hope some people learn you NEVER mess with someone's momma!
