At the beginning of her career as an entertainer, DaniLeigh secured an iconic musician as her mentor – The Only Prince. Although she has told the story many times, it often comes up in interviews. That was the case when DaniLeigh appeared by Breakfast Club last week.
At one point in the conversation, Charlamagne Tha God brings up her connection to Prince. DaniLeigh explains how Prince discovered her and gave her the chance of a lifetime: a gig directing him Breakfast can wait music videos. However, before she disappeared, she also cleared up all floating rumors about an affair with the Prince. Instead, she explained that their relationship was limited to friendship and work.
DaniLeigh said two of Prince’s dancers reached out to her on his behalf. They told her Prince wanted a dance video to a song. So she developed the choreography and sent the footage to Prince. Prince asked her to take a video and write the treatment. She did, and that led to a phone call with Prince.
Breakfast can wait Choreographer calls for Dani
One of the choreographers behind Breakfast can wait don’t feel DaniLeigh’s comment on the show. Nicole Kirkland reposted Shade room of post featuring DaniLeigh’s performance story above.
“Is there any choreography??? But I did the choreography for the entry,” Nicole wrote on her Instagram Story. “And then me & @antoinetroupe choreographed the video.”
Nicole did not end her commentary there. In another post, she registered that Prince hired her to choreograph the submission. Later, Nicole said she teamed up with Antoine Troupe to do the final dance moves of the video.
Nicole added, “and to be honest, we helped direct it that day because the shoot was messy…but we could have let that part go.” She continued, “and there are 12 dancers all booked to be able to support that. Man..”
DaniLeigh claps back to Chreogrpaher: “I hired them all”
Chile, DaniLeigh did not bite his tongue in response! She jumped in Shade room of Comments and comments section about Nicole.
“Hi, I chose YALL and gave you a chance, you guys are selfish and want all the credit when you always get credit for the choreography. I always say I directed it… never asked to choreograph, that’s part of the video’s attribution,” wrote DaniLeigh.
DaniLeigh also echoed another part of her commentary with Breakfast Club host. It turns out that Prince only discovered DaniLeigh through her Vine videos. So she reminds Nicole of that fact in her applause.
“The prince chose me, FIND ME!! Wants to give ME a chance, wants to continue to help me in my career… he doesn’t continue to use Y’all on projects because he’s seen how you guys did ME,” wrote DaniLeigh.
The singer continued to talk about Nicole and Antoine’s alleged behavior on set. She reminds Nicole that opportunity is her “biggest first job,” and she allegedly screwed it up.
“…But you both want to be weird and act like I didn’t give you a lifetime chance,” wrote DaniLeigh. “But all is well… really no stumble… no thanks… just next time you meet in person, don’t pretend to say hello… weird… 15 minutes you’ve been waiting for 10 years ago. “
Dani ends her blast with a shade, saying, “The prince doesn’t hire s**t!!! He hired me! I hired you all”.
