The drama between Miami rapper Gunplay and Queens radio show host DJ Envy is heating up after the latter’s wife has now entered into the drama.

In a recent We in Miami podcast, Vonshae Taylor-Morales has confirmed that she is suing The Breakfast Club personality for slandering her child’s name during another beef Envy has with Rick Ross.

On June 10, Taylor-Morales explained that she and her husband challenged Envy to a celebrity boxing match with the proceeds going towards a GoFundMe for her daughter who is currently undergoing treatment for a heart defect.

Before the drama, Envy was involved in a tussle with fellow Miami rapper Rick Ross after he mentioned that Gunplay and his wife had created the GoFundMe for their daughter. She stated that because Envy mentioned the donation, trolls began to harass her on social media.

“I’m seeing a therapist about all this,” Taylor-Morales said. “It took me to a very traumatic space. No one’s expecting to give birth to a daughter with a heart defect that rare and having open heart surgery.”

According to her, Envy promised to apologize and he did so privately in a recorded phone call. But she said that it took him nearly a week to say sorry and has not publicly apologized. Because of this, she is suing.

“You [Envy] need to learn your lesson,” she said. “You can’t just go onto this type of platform with your voice and your followers and say anything that you want. People come at you and not realize like what you’re going through at that time.”

She said she had already sent a cease and desist to Envy before the suit was filed.

Meanwhile, Envy went on-air to state that the private apology was recorded without his knowledge.

“I thought it was dope because I thought it was two men having a problem, a disagreement and handling it like men,” Envy said. “The fact that we could have that discussion. I thought that was dope, but when you record a phone call? I just thought that was chasing something else.”

Envy further went on to explain that he never mentioned Gunplay’s wife’s name nor the name of their child when he referred to the GoFundMe page.

“I never even said what it was I just said he put up a GoFundMe,” he explained. “Another thing that people gotta understand too, and this is a side note, it is against the law to record somebody’s phone conversation and not tell ’em. That is against the law.”

He added: “Under Florida statute 93403, ‘secretly audio recording another individual is a third-degree felony offense, punishable up to five years in prison and a fine.”
