We Had Heard: HOT97 DJ K. Foxx ‘FIRED’

Gumbumpers, sources are telling us that DJ K. Foxx has been booted from Hot97 radio show. We aren’t sure why but, according to AllHipHop, the star of the new reality series The Gossip Game was regularly caught beefing with co-host and boss Ebro. The rumor mill has already begun to spin with the word on her replacement. Allegedly, her co-star Ms. Drama (or JasFly, depending on reports) is set to take over Foxx’s responsibilities.

Hot 97 vet Miss Info tweeted the sources are “bullsh*t.” However, in JasFly’s exclusive statement to VIBE Vixen, she says,

“I love K. She’s incredibly talented and I’m excited to see what’s next for her.”

No word from K. Foxx but, with her resume, it’s plausible that she will bounce back.
