Fans expecting to see Salt-N-Pepa hit the road as a trio this summer will apparently not get the chance according to the group’s DJ Spinderella.
Spin, whose real name is Deidra Roper, dropped the bomb on Instagram Thursday, May 2, two days after the group’s joint BET reality series with SWV premiered.
The note revealed she won’t be hitting the road with ’80s boy band New Kids on the Block along with Salt-N-Pepa, Naughty By Nature, Tiffany, and Debbie Gibson. The tour kicked off May 2.
“I’m deeply saddened to share with all the #SaltnPepa and #Spinderella fans that I will not be performing on the #NKOTB Mixtape Tour,” the lengthy notice began. “Despite my participation in promoting the tour and being highly publicized as one of the acts, in January 2019 I received a ‘termination’ email from #SaltnPepa excluding me from performances with the group. It was my expectation, after making that decision, that they would also take responsibility for sharing the news with the public and other affected parties. It has been months now with no mention.
“Out of love for my fans and a commitment to upholding a standard of professionalism, I’ve taken it upon myself to let everyone know. I refuse to participate in misleading fans, ticketholders, and others who — based on all the advertising — were anticipating seeing the iconic #SaltnPepa and #Spinderella trio. So, I’m making it clear now. Please know you will have the opportunity to see me this summer in many other projects and activities I’ll be participating in and I look forward to seeing you all then. Thank you,
