In an interview with RadarOnline.com, Ludacris revealed that he confronted O’Reilly at an event the two attended and things went from there.
“The first thing I said to him was, ‘I want to meet the guy who has had so much to say about me, but knows absolutely nothing about me’,” Ludacris told RadarOnline.com. “He wasn’t expecting to see me, at all. The look on his face when he saw me approaching…priceless.”
Although it’s still unclear how exactly the feud between the two began, O’Reilly constantly expressed his distaste for the rapper on his show The O’Reilly Factor and was even successful in getting Ludacris’ endorsement with Pepsi dropped.
“From there, we came to a common ground,” said Ludacris. “To be honest with you, we came together and did an event for charity – as crazy as it sounds. Perhaps everything happens for a reason…It took about seven years for that to happen, but it finally happened. And the joy that came over me, well, it was outstanding.”
News of O’Reilly and Ludacris’ conversation comes only days after the release of Ludacris’ latest project Battle Of The Sexes.
