In short: While it's true that Badu and D.O.C. share a 7-year-old daughter named Puma, Badu is not interested in pursuing further romantic relations with The D.O.C., nor does she plan to participate in his planned reality show, I Got My Voice Back, beyond a rare guest appearance or two.
Below, read the entire statement from Levatino:
Erykah Badu and The D.O.C. share parental responsibilities for their daughter and their relationship as it regards that aim is very good. However, that is the full extent of their personal involvement and no romantic dynamic exists between the two. Moreover, Erykah has no plans to marry or have any sort of courtship with the D.O.C. Ms. Badu has no plans to allow a reality show to be filmed in her private Dallas residence or to include any of her children in the filming. Ms. Badu has no concrete plans further than a guest appearance in his reality show. The D.O.C.'s comments were either taken out of context, improperly interpreted, or reflective of his now, not-so-secret desires. Whatever the case, Erykah wishes D.O.C. well both spiritually and professionally.
Well, we're confident that we neither took his comments out of context nor improperly interpreted them... so I guess that leaves "reflective of his now, not-so-secret desires," in this case meaning his love for Badu, we think.
