Porsha Williams’ team has shot down accusations that she tried to steal a song from Syleena Johnson.
Earlier this week, producer Pierre Medor’s rep sent out a statement, alleging that they were surprised to see a clip of Porsha singing “Perfectly Worthless” on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Supposedly, she was filmed recording the song without Pierre’s permission, leading the producer to accuse her of trying to pass off the song as hers.
Now, one of Porsha’s reps claims that Pierre was aware that his song would appear on “RHOA.” A member of Porsha’s PR team also texted him a notice that a clip of his song had just aired, and Pierre seemed pretty happy about the song promotion at the time.
“Both parties signed a release with the show to tape a scene using the song. There was no contract between [the] producer and Porsha and there has been no continued promotion or discussion of the song by Porsha and the aforementioned producer,” Porsha’s rep said in a statement. They also sent Sister 2 Sister a screen shot of the exchange.
Porsha’s camp charges that Pierre’s accusations are nothing more than a ill-conceived attempt to drum up more buzz around the single, which was sold to Syleena. “This is an obvious and desperate attempt at riding Porsha’s PR coattails,” the rep stated. “It is obvious that this producer full knowingly used Porsha and the Housewives platform for self-promotion and in his latest slanderous attack is still continuing to do so.”
The “RHOA” stars rep added, “Since there has been no actual lawsuit filed because there is no viable claim, It is clear that said producer is pathetically using dishonest tactics to harm Porsha and attempt to lift himself further.”
