“T.I. just literally punched me in the face,” said Taggart. “We’re in a vibe and I was like, gave him a kiss on the cheek. It was totally my fault. And he was like, ‘Don’t do that,’ and I was like, ‘OK,’ and he pushed me off, and I was like ‘Alright, my bad.’ Then, he punched me in the face and I was, ‘OK, I’m sorry,’ and he was like ‘Alright, cool, we’re good.’ It was the weirdest interaction ever.”
