Complex has now confirmed to Billboard that Budden has officially departed from the show.
“Joe Budden is not continuing as a host on Everyday Struggle in 2018,” Complex told Billboard. “The show will be back in the New Year with all new episodes and guests. We wish Joe all the best and thank him for a great 2017.”
“We love and respect him; we believe he’s terrific but the reality is we couldn’t reach an agreement,” Complex said.
Budden continued tweeting, “I created that show… I’ll create another if need be… & another & another….. it’s when u CANT create that you move WITHOUT integrity….”
“I am not on paternity & they should stop using my 3 day old child to mask internal chaos, thx,” he replied to DJ Whoo Kid, who recently appeared on the show.
