Like a bad marriage, sometimes relationships just don’t work out — despite concerted efforts to keep it together. And in the case of Salt-N-Pepa, it appears their trifecta has crumbled.

In a lengthy Instagram statement posted on Thursday (May 2), DJ Spinderella — who has been with the Grammy Award-winning duo since 1987 (replacing the original Spinderella, Latoya Hanson) — revealed she was essentially fired from the upcoming New Kids On The Block: The Mixtape Tour featuring Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, Naughty By Nature and, of course, Salt-N-Pepa.

“I’m deeply saddened to share with all the #SaltnPepa and #Spinderella fans that I will not be performing on the #NKOTB Mixtape Tour,” she wrote. “Despite my participation in promoting the tour and being highly publicized as one of the acts, in January 2019 I received a ‘termination’ email from #SaltnPepa excluding me from performances with the group.

“It was my expectation, after making that decision, that they would also take responsibility for sharing the news with the public and other affected parties.”

It was my expectation, after making that decision, that they would also take responsibility for sharing the news with the public and other affected parties. It has been months now with no mention. Out of love for my fans and a commitment to upholding a standard of professionalism, I've taken it upon myself to let everyone know. I refuse to participate in misleading fans, ticketholders, and others who — based on all the advertising — were anticipating seeing the iconic #SaltnPepa and #Spinderella trio. So, I'm making it clear now. Please know you will have the opportunity to see me this summer in many other projects and activities I'll be participating in and I look forward to seeing you all then.” Thank you, Spinderella 😘

Spinderella added it’s been months since she received the email and thought Cheryl “Salt” James or Sandra “Pepa” Denton would’ve informed their fans by now.

“Out of love for my fans and a commitment to upholding a standard of professionalism, I’ve taken it upon myself to let everyone know,” she continued. “I refuse to participate in misleading fans, ticketholders, and others who — based on all the advertising — were anticipating seeing the iconic #SaltnPepa and #Spinderella trio.

The NKTOB tour kicked off on Thursday (May 2) in Ohio and continues through July.
