“I just want to finish out what me and Joseline did,” he told Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy, referring to footage that aired of himself and Hernandez that sparked dating rumors. “When we did the studio thing…I thought that was just it. But the network been looking for me. ‘We want Dro.’ I wasn’t in the position to be on anybodies TV. I didn’t want to let anybody in my personal business. But at the same time, I wanted to finish out what me and her started.”

And Lil Jon has confirmed it all.

“When this Uncle Tom incident happened on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ in the boardroom several of my castmates and I addressed Mr. Trump immediately when we heard the comment,” Lil Jon said in a statement. “I can’t say if he knew what he was saying or not.”

Arsenio Hall, who happened to be a guest on the show that day overheard the comments and was reportedly absolutely livid, sending “Celebrity Apprentice” producers into crisis mode.

“We kept trying to explain to [Trump] that that’s not a word you can use, that it’s offensive,” a “Celebrity Apprentice” employee told The Daily Beast. “One of the executive producers had to call him up directly to [plead with] him not to say it, and Trump was like, ‘No, that’s a saying, it’s Uncle Tom.’”

In his statement, Lil Jon admitted that once he and his castmates confronted Trump over the usage of the slur, the billionaire stop calling him “Uncle Tom.”

“He did stop using that term once we explained it’s offensiveness,” Lil Jon said. “I also want to be clear that I don’t agree with many of the statements Mr. Trump has said during his current run for president.”
