Legendary DJ Spinderella took to her Instagram account to announce that rap duo Salt-N-Pepa booted her from the group at the beginning of the year via email, despite her image being used to promote the group’s featured performance as part of the New Kids On The Block tour that is currently underway.
“I am deeply saddened to share with all the Salt-N-Pepa and Spinderella fans that I will not be performing on the NKOTB Mixtape Tour,” Spinderella posted as a caption for a post that has since been deleted. “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 Salt-N-Pepa 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.”
Spinderella said that Salt-N-Pepa have made no mention of her termination to the public.
“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,” Spinderella said. “I refuse to participate in misleading fans, ticketholders and others who – based on all the advertising – were expecting to see the iconic Salt-N-Pepa and Spinderella trio. So, I’m making it clear now. Please know that you will have the opportunity to see me in other projects.”
