Benzino Responds to Coi Leray Saying Her Father Is ‘Envious’ of Her Success in New Interview

Benzino is speaking out against the claim that he is “envious” of his daughter Coi Leray’s success.

During an interview with Angie Martinez for her IRL Podcast, the radio host asked Leray how Benzino deals with her success. “At first it was rocky, because I felt like he couldn’t handle my success. I felt like it did come from an envious place, which is okay, cause he’s human, and it’s fine. He’s one of those people that feels like ‘Yo, I still have a story to tell,’” she said.

The Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta alum didn’t take kindly to his daughter’s comments and fired back on Instagram, writing, “This has to be the most ridiculous 💩 I’ve heard in my entire life on this earth. How tf can be envious towards someone I RAISED, NUTURED, PROVIDED FOR, INFLUENCED AND LOVE VERY DEARLY??? This industry and the internet have completely messed up the minds of this young generation.”
