Derek J was caught in the middle of a volatile hair battle after helping out Keyshia Cole’s sister, Neffe Pugh.
Things got real at Derek’s salon over his new client Neffe! WSBTV reports that Neffe came to Derek after an unsatisfactory session at another salon. The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" stylist didn’t say what was wrong with the "Frankie & Neffe" show star’s head, but it was pretty bad.
"Her hair was messed up to the point that we didn’t know what to do," said Derek, who reached out to the first stylist to see what was used in Neffe’s hair. "It turned from just a professional conversation to more of an argument, but we thought it was done."
Unfortunately, he was wrong about that and the other stylist came to Derek’s salon, The J Spot. The celebrity hair stylist and his staff were not prepared for what followed.
"We knew it wasn’t going to be a good thing when he came," Derek explained. "We thought it was going to be a quick exchange with words and then he was going to be gone. So, nobody really knew he would pull out a gun.”
Derek seems to have brushed off the shock of the confrontation, but there is one thing that’s really bothering him. "I’m upset ’cause my floor is messed up now," he admitted.
