During a game of “Burning Questions” on The Ellen DeGeneres show this week, comedian Tiffany Haddish was asked to share some things about herself that no one knows. At one point in the game, the 39-year-old was asked if she ever dated a celebrity “that the world doesn’t know about.”

She initially said no after breaking into laughter, but switched the question around to name rapper Chingy.

 “I talked about one, but was it really dating or did we just hook up?” she asked. “Chingy. It was a hookup. That was the early 00s y’all, I don’t even know if that counts anymore.”

When Ellen needed to be reminded of his breakout hit, Tiffany started singing “Right Thurr.”

All in fun, right? Well, when the rapper caught wind of Tiffany’s claims, he decided to take to Instagram to clear some things up. That’s when things got pretty awkward.

“Now @tiffanyhaddish knows damn well that’s a lie an since she lied I’m a tell the truth she use to hook up with my brother not me but she liked me,” he wrote. “Hey if we gone be honest let’s be honest😎 #chingy #facts #juslikethat”

Some people felt his response was a tad petty, but he felt he was within his right to clear his name.

“I’m grown an [sic] if I did it I would say it with no problem cause that’s jus [sic] how I am,” he said, “but come on it’s childish.”

When someone jokingly told the 39-year-old to “Just roll with it,” he said, “sorry but you don’t jus [sic] roll with lies.”

Most people know that comedians lie here and there to make people laugh, but if it’s true that she never actually hooked up with Chingy (perhaps she mistook his brother for the rapper?), he certainly didn’t find what she had to say to be funny. This isn’t the first time he has alleged that someone has lied about sleeping with him.
If you’ll recall, he claims Internet and TV personality Sidney Starr, a trans woman, lied about them hooking up after he took a picture with her years ago and that it damaged his career. The rumors ended up being false. With that in mind, you can’t blame him for not taking too kindly to being looped in to people’s stories.
“That person who nobody knew, had that much power to come out and say one negative thing, and a whole mass of people just instantly took to it,” he said in 2014 about Sidney’s claims. “And they didn’t have not one piece of evidence. Not one piece of clue, nothing! They had nothing. They just had this person’s lie. It actually injured my career a little bit; I watched it happen! I lost a deal ’cause of that. A record situation. I lost a deal because of that because it was said to me, ‘There was so much bad publicity around that.’ It’s so crazy, man.”
