Come on, dude, I mean, really! Which is it? Check out the excerpts from Darius's Sister 2 Sister interview.
DARIUS ON HOW THAT 'MARRIAGE' ANNOUNCEMENT RUINED/ENDED HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH SHAKIRI HIGHTOWER: 'When my ex saw that, she was really, really pissed about it. She said it was embarrassing. Shakiri decided she couldn't deal with me--and Shakiri has two kids. What Shakiri was saying was, 'I can't have my kids looking up on the Internet and seeing you with Superhead.' And she was really not happy about it. I was like, 'Okay, give me a chance to straighten it out.' And she was like, 'I don't know.' And see this is the thing: Shakiri was married to Keyshawn Johnson. They were in a ridiculous child custody battle and that would've looked really bad on her. So we agreed, and I bowed out gracefully. We're still very good friends. And I really love Shakiri.'
DARIUS ON KARRINE'S CONTROLLING & CONNIVING WAYS: 'Karrine is a cool person. She's the kind of person you can sit up and talk to. Honestly, I think that's why a lot of dudes end up becoming her prey later on. Cause the minute you do something that she doesn't like, then your business is in the streets and then she's gonna put you on the Internet sleeping on her couch or she's gonna say some things. Karrine is like a child: When she don't get her way--and this is what I've seen firsthand--things get ugly. But I'm gonna tell you what I did, for real. I just fed her a bunch of bullshit.
Because her thing is, she can't have no man leaving her because it makes her look like she's not the 'video vixen' no more. And Karrine will do anything to keep her image. That was part of the reason why I decided to leave, because some of the things she said about me on the radio. There's a lot of things that I could say about Karrine that wouldn't make her look good. But I'm thinking about the type of person I am. And the way I was raised. The one thing I will say about Karrine that is negative that I can put out there--she admits to this--that she is a very controlling woman, and I can't be controlled. Karrine is the type of broad that, she don't want nobody telling her nothing. You almost have to kinda walk on eggshells when you're dealing with her, and I ain't no punk up in here!'
DARIUS ON KARRINE'S SELFISH WAYS: 'This is my problem with Karrine. Whenever I do something, I think about how it would affect her. She's not cognizant at all--when she says these things and does these things, like how is this gonna affect Darius? Her main thing is, 'I gotta sell books. I'mma deal with you right now because wow, you're more popular than I thought you were.' That's how she thinks. So its like one minute it's all about me and then the next minute it's Lil Wayne. And I will say this: She is really clever concerning the way she works the media.'
After the jump, find out what in-one-ear-and-out-the-other advice Bobby Brown gave to Darius that he didn't take heed to, as well as Darius' reasons as to why Karrine would make the perfect ho-turned-into-housewife and more.
DARIUS ON WHY KARRINE CAN BE TRANSFORMED FROM A HO TO A HOUSEWIFE: 'Karrine's not a passive girl. She's a sweetheart. She is. But she's very aggressive when it comes to her business. So she's a balanced woman. And she keeps a clean house. She keeps an incredibly clean house. Everything is in order. Her son is very well-mannered. He's a really, really fine young man. Karrine is outside of all the bullshit that people hype up about the whole 'Superhead' thing. She really is a cool chick to kick it with. She can cook. A couple of nights I was out, and I'd come back. And when I came in dinner was waiting on me; she's seriously a homemaker. She's very accommodating. Whatever arouses a man, she'll figure it out. She'll find it and she'll master that. If you're into watching dirty movies, you can sit up and watch dirty movies with her. If you're gonna turn a ho into a housewife, that's the one to get.'
DARIUS ON KARRINE'S 'MEN ROSTER': 'She was messing around with Lil Wayne and a couple of other little miscellaneous dudes that really weren't important to me. When Karrine and I started kicking it, and we weren't even messing around, and she had this roster. And she'll attest to this: it's five dudes on a roster. She had one through five. The top two were the dudes she messed with the most; three, four and five only received text messages. And then I told her I ain't gonna be on the roster. I don't wanna see my name on that board. So then she was like, 'alright.' So what she did was, she wrote my name above one-two-three-four-five, and she was like, 'There's no one above you.' I was like, 'That's cute, but I don't want my name on no board.' So she erased the whole board. So she was trying to figure out how to ease her way out of those other situations. But in the meantime, she didn't care about my situation, you know? She didn't care about hurting Shakiri--nobody else's feelings.
And on the real, what I really saw was somebody who was used to being arrogant and coldhearted trying--or making the best attempt at being sincere.'
DARIUS ON HIS 'LOVE' FOR KARRINE: 'I was not in love with her. I was having a good time; I was having fun. We were friends having fun. I love her very much. But I love her in a different way. It's not a thing of like it's sappy, syrupy, lovey-dovey thing. She's an individual I care for very, very much. And she is the type of person who, like I said, you could marry; you could be with. My main thing with her is that she talks too much...I know if she talks as much to me as she has about other people's business, even if she didn't gossip, whenever she's in a relationship, if she's had 100 men, there are 100 men that know each other's business.'
