Are Tahiry and Joe Budden still together? “Love and Hip Hop New York” stars Tahiry Jose and Joe Budden decided to show the world their dysfunctional relationship post a breakup on season three of the VH1 reality show, but now they are attempting to give their romance another chance in season four. Now that Kaylin Garcia is no longer a factor in Joe’s life, Tahiry hoped they could finally make their very on and off relationship work. However, there’s been quite a few bumps on the road and in the supertrailer for the season, it was apparent that other women could still be an issue for the sometimes couple. Tahiry recently chatted it up with Vibe and revealed her relationship status with Joe Budden. When asked if she could ever learn to trust him, she says:
“Right now, no. The world thinks that Joey and I went back and forth for nine years [but] we didn’t. We were together five, apart for four and I gave him a chance in May [but] he f*cked up. The core of every relationship is a friendship … He failed as friends a few times and now, as being together so right now, I don’t think I can.
“I feel like Joey’s girlfriend is social media and then comes Tahiry. I need to be a man’s priority.”
And when asked if she’ll ever reach her breaking point with Joe, she says:
“It already did. Just tune in Monday nights. What happens is that we women go through stages,from anger to hurt, pain to ‘I don’t give a f*ck’ to ‘I’m over it.’ I was going through a lot last season. Love and Hip Hop wound up being my therapy. I didn’t know that I had this baggage and that I was this hurt and angry. I gave him this chance, I did the best I could do and I’m ok with that. That was the best thing I could have ever did was trying it again because I don’t have questions about anything. You could ask me if Joe and I will have a future, I can’t tell you. God has a funny sense of humor. Today, I’m ok with being his friend.”
