VIA Essence: got to the root of a recent black blogosphere firestorm that suggested Kym Whitley had smacked her good friend and fellow actress Tamala Jones during the Pleasure P album release party in Miami.

But, the whole thing was a joke from Atlanta rapper Yung Joc, who apparently felt like starting some mess on Twitter.

He tweeted: “They were playing at first, at least I thought they were and then Tamela [sic] was like b—- how you let a dude with a pinky d— turn you out. BAM. I almost feel like it was my fault because I started flirting with the two of them and they took that sh– somewhere else. I kinda feel bad. don’t think Tamela [sic] didn’t buck back!!! But Kim is too thick for her…i got pics and video too!

Needless to say, folks believed the gossip and promptly spread it around. But Tamala Jones says she and Whitley were just playing.

She told

I really have to come clean about this because Kym, who’s like my sister, has been catching a lot of flack for this. It was all a joke. What happened is we ran into Yung Joc in the lobby of our hotel and we were bickering like sisters do but nothing serious and Joc was like y’all are funny like Laverne and Shirley. He ended up going to dinner with us and while we were at dinner he said we should come up with a joke like he had done about DMX and Katt Williams. He thought we should be arguing over him and we were like, ‘Uh, no.’  So we start up and his boy is taping us in action as we begin ragging on each other and then we were going to tape the second part–the alleged smack–but it never happened. Again, we were just joking around and going to let everyone know it was just a joke. I was like, ‘Sure this is good press for you Kym you have “Transformers” coming out soon.’ I’ve never been violent nor has anyone ever been violent towards me. But now, it’s gotten out of hand and it’s affecting Kym’s money because she has a deal with a company and they called her about it. So I want to just set the record straight that we were all just having fun and being silly.
