Have best friends become strangers? Waka Flocka tells VIBE that after Gucci Mane severed ties from his mother’s management company this past Spring, their relationship has suffered. In fact, he says they’re no longer on speaking terms.
Do you know why Gucci and Nicki decided to part ways with your mom?

They must have just felt like they needed a change. Maybe they felt like other people can take their career somewhere else. I don’t know. Just like LeBron going to the Heat. I ain’t mad, though, or got problems with anybody. Moms is good; her bills are paid.
Has the split affected your relationship with Gucci?
Yeah, all the way… All the way. I ain’t got beef or anything but it has changed.
So what’s your relationship like now?
There is none. We don’t talk anymore.
