EXCLUSIVE | Love & Listings' Tai Savet refutes Jacob's charge of using Knight name for business: 'He's a kid'
'I think he wants to put the blame on somebody else, I think he has issues with his baby Mama. I think he has issues with respect to his dad being locked'
VH1's hit series 'Love & Listings' has drawn us all in with its beautiful homes and the drama among the celebrity real-estate agents. Tai Savet, one of the agents on the show, has stayed far away from the drama for a very long time. However, the previous episode of the show saw Jacob Suge Knight accusing Tai of leaking false news to TMZ about his father, the infamous music mogul - Suge Knight. This accusation created a bit of tension between both the men.
In an exclusive interview with MEA World Wide (MEAWW), Tai detailed out what exactly went down between Jacob and him, and where they currently stand. We began by asking Tai to explain what exactly went down between Jacob and him. Tai says, "I think he's just a young, immature kid that wants to blame everybody else without doing his research. So, I think that, you know it's growth I can't be mad at the kid because he believes something that in his mind is true but the problem is you didn't take the time to actually do due diligence to actually find out what the truth was. So, I think that it's just the growing thing for him."
When Tai heard the rumors of Jacob accusing him of leaking false information to TMZ, he handled it very well. He directly addressed the issue by asking Jacob about it and trying to resolve the issue instead of making a big deal about it. Tai explains, "I respect the fact that he's young and you know, I don't have to, I don't have to always name drop and say this and that there'd be somebody it's just, it comes with age. So that's why I didn't respond either."
We couldn't help but wonder why Jacob would come to the conclusion that Tai was the mole that was leaking everything to the press. So we asked Tai why he thinks Jacob was accusing him. "I think he wants to put the blame on somebody else, I think he has issues with his baby Mama. I think he has issues with respect to his dad being locked, with his mom sitting in a different state and he's all alone. I think that, you know, why not blame somebody. He can't blame his father, so blame your old boss."
While Jacob accused Tai, their fellow cast member/agent, Taylor Schwartz, kept insisting that she knows who leaked the false news to the press, and that it wasn't Tai. So, we asked Tai if he knew who she was talking about. While Tai reveals that it's someone from Suge Knight's inner circle, he refuses to share the name of the person. Tai says, "It's one of the real Suge Knight's confidantes, not Jacob's, but one of his father's confidante that he's friends with. And what I will say is that story wasn't leaked. His father knew all about it." Although Tai refuses to divulge the name he does give some hints. He reveals, "No, I can't tell you the name, but I can tell you that he was somebody in their circle and he's in my circle and, and his (Jacob's) circle."
So has Tai spoken or connected with Jacob since the filming of the show ended? "Uh, I haven't talked to him, you know, men don't talk," he declares. We can't wait to watch how things play out between Tai and Jacob on 'Love & Listings'.
