Master P is speaking out against haters who say he’s using his family and personal life’s drama to score a new reality show.
Wendy Williams is just one of the folks who blasted the music mogul for airing his very dirty laundry out for the world to see in hopes of drawing attention to his latest venture, "The Miller Dynasty."
“First of all, I thought Wendy Williams was my friend. I understand that her job is to entertain gossip but how could she keep picking up TMZ gossip as if it was real news when she should have contacted me directly if she was really concerned about my family, or me like she claims. If anyone understands being in the media and having to deal with celebrity￼ personal family gossip and betrayal, she should know because of her own situation,” he wrote.
“If she wants to know the truth, as my friend, she should call me directly to get the facts and the truth rather than joining the media circus and talking trash. It’s funny how all of my philanthropy efforts for the past 20 years have never received this type of attention, not that I’m looking for any recognition, but it amazes me how Hollywood glorifies negativity.”
According to Master P, his show won’t be based on the turmoil surrounding his divorce, his wife’s alleged drug abuse, or his troubled children.
“Well I guess I’m going to change the reality tv world the way that I’ve changed the music industry because the show that I’m doing is not ratchet negativity, it’s about fatherhood, standing up for something that you believe in and family business in the music industry from a positive perspective while still entertainment for TV,” he continued.
“After 24 years of keeping our family personal life private, we are ready to share with the world our life experiences, the trials, tribulations and accomplishments that come with being a successful family of musicians and entertainers. As a music mogul and being one of the most successful music entrepreneurs in the business, I was forced to deal with the harsh reality of going through a divorce, while being a father to my kids even as a single parent,” he said.
“It’s challenging as a public figure because of the gossip, false accusations and negative media. Due to the need of media outlets to sell headlines and news stories, celebrities are labeled guilty until proven innocent. I feel like our private lives have been invaded and with all of this technology, social media and TMZ, our lives are more open to scrutiny. Our reality show will expose the truth.”
He insists that his show will focus on the positive aspects of family life and shed light on how “normal” his family is.
“'The Miller Dynasty' is founded on integrity and family values. We are not perfect by any means; we go through similar struggles like any family. There are constant battles that we fight especially with having money and fame but with our faith and belief in God we are able to overcome any obstacle,” he said.
“Our family has come a long way from poverty￼ in the ghetto and to be able to share our story from rags to riches, the good, the bad, and the ugly that come with success. Our goal and our purpose is for this reality show to be educational and entertainment for all families.”
