If you ever followed the group 3LW, or the drama that ensued when the original lineup fell apart in 2002, you’ve heard all the stories about Naturi Naughton allegedly being pushed out of the group. She felt she was mistreated to the point where she claimed her former groupmates threw food at her during an argument between her and the group’s manager, Michelle Williams, who is Kiely Williams‘ mother.
On TV One's 'Uncensored', the 'Power' star Naturi Naughton shared the story of the fight between her and her ex-group mates, Kiely Williams and Adrienne Bailon in a KFC parking lot in Atlanta.
"[In our Suburban] Kiely and Adrienne were in the middle aisle and I was in the back by myself," she remembered. "I said, 'I'm not the one that's trying to kick me out the group. Don't be mad that the news is out, 'cause it's true!' There were some names called, some profanity thrown. Kiely turned around and threw a plate of food — mashed potatoes, chicken, whatever else was in there — in my face."
Naughton added that after the food was thrown, she decided to exit the vehicle, telling the ladies, "’I'm going home.’ I was not given the gift to sing to deal with this s**t.’ They drove off with the driver and left me in the parking lot, in Atlanta, Georgia."
Kiely Williams was made aware of Naughton's interview and jumped today on her Instagram to issue a response.
Naughton responded by leaving multiple laughing emojis, and Williams fired back with an image of a Nike symbol with the words, "B**ch, just don't." Seventeen years later and these ladies are fighting on Instagram. Meanwhile, back in 2017, Naughton visited The Real where Bailon issued a public apology to Naughton for doing anything in the past that hurt her.
