Spinderella Files Restraining Order Against Salt N' Pepa


Last month Deidra Roper aka DJ Spinderella from the 90s hip hop group Salt N' Pepa, filed a lawsuit against her former bandmates accusing them of kicking her out of the group and not paying her a fair share of Salt N' Pepa profits [click here if you missed that].

Now Spin wants a restraining order...
 
According to reports Spinderella filed for a restraining order in Dallas seeking injunctive relief due to the immediate and irreparable harm that has been caused to her due to the acts and omissions of the defendants.

A judge is expected to rule on Friday [today].

R in NYC says:

No publicity stunt.

Salt n Pepa said, “After decades of friendship, Spinderella has embarked on a smear campaign, and sued her friends, based on blatantly erroneous assertions. The truth, however, is that Salt and Pepa have always tried to do right by Spinderella. Spinderella decided to quit performing with Salt and Pepa years ago and asked to rejoin the group “Salt N Pepa” in December, 2013. “

They said that in order to help their friend and nostalgia influenced Salt and Pepa’s decision to pay Spinderella on a per-show basis. They said Spinderella agreed to the terms.

Obviously things didn’t work out. The band members claim, “Salt-N-Pepa spent months trying to close open issues—like how they would each refer to their shared history going forward as they each pursued respective careers—in the hope they could part as friends.”

The two claim that they have no problem never mentioning Spinderella again, if she promises that she will do the same. Salt n Pepa denied Spinderella’s claim that she wasn’t compensated for their Vegas shows. They refereed to allegation as “pure fantasy.”

Spinderella claims that she was not paid for a compilation album, for which Pepa promised her that she would be paid $125,000. She never received it.

Sad to see this all go so wrong.

I am soooooo sorry to hear this. I just can't! I'm around their age and this is some BS.

You mean to tell me 3 women who were trailblazers in the rap game is arguing over royalties??? The music business is/ was not like it used to be and you all are arguing over a pittance of your true wealth to the industry and community with your socially conscious songs.... Now we talking restraining orders??? WOW just WOW!

Perfect example of: if you give them an inch, they will take a mile... They should have only allowed her to do her HIRED dj duties, instead of giving into her demands/cries to be closer to them and none of this would be happening. DJ Twist would never!

I bet it’s Pepa being the most wild one trying to fight Spinderella.

Salt n Pepa need to get lost in the dam Hudson River.Those hoe's know Spinderella was the glue that kept they ass together.Plus this is what jealousy looks like up close.They never like that Spinderella was the prettiest out the group.They mad talking crayz about her.If she was that bad of a DJ! Why yall didnt part ways with her in 1988? 2 fake hoe's!

Spinderella does not resemble Hazel at all. Hazel E is trash and there is no comparison. You all should know by now certain lighting will alter the photo. Old argument. Spin has always been beautiful.

Unknown said...

This is disheartening. I always thought they were so dope. I did peep that Spin was a bit standoffish during their reality show tho. She was probably like stop frontin for these damn cameras.

Unknown said...

10:33 think your right, they probably was jealous of her. Salt & Pepper both look a hot mess

Unknown said...

Watched the show and Salt and Pepa came off as mean girls.

Salt = Regina George
Pepa = Gretchen Wieners
Spinderella= Cady Heron

Unknown said...

Y'all social media babies ain't going to get it or have a clue.

Even if she wasn't the "first" DJ in the group;back in the day Emcees were nothing without the DJ. Circa late 70's, 80's..what's the group without the DJ?? Especially if you from New York, you know what it was.

Remember Salt became religious, got married and was to righteous and spiritual for the group. All while Pepa still wanted to do so and was hanging with Spin? Thought Salt was cool. After watching the show, Salt definitely is an asshole; her and Pepa. Fakes all day long.
Spin probably can make more money with a tell all. They need to break Spin off with something. I've never thought of the group without Spinderella.

Yeah, I’m in their age range and remember a lot of tea from day 1. Salt needs to quit. They’ve been disrespectful of Spin for years and act like she’s a booger that you just flick away. I really hate bitches get off their high horses.

Run DMC never did Jam Master Jay like this. No one ever saw them without the other.
Women and their damn hormones. One breathe a bitch is saved but soon as her marriage is over she back to doing her.....being a bitch. Fake asses!

This is sad for three concerned - did they really gain any gusto before the drama is being played in public view?
