Did Wendy Williams date rapper Eric B? Inside the tumultuous relationship, abortion and how he ‘did [her] dirty’
Wendy Williams is not biting her lip when it comes to depicting her past relationships in the Lifetime biopic ‘Wendy Williams: The Movie’ and one of the most controversial ones would be with Eric B — half of the hip-hop golden age duo Eric B & Rakim — who was recently arrested on a 17-year-old warrant.
In the film, the character of Eric B is portrayed by Jamall Johnson. The movie begins by showing the couple's tumultuous relationship and then hints at how Williams had to get an abortion. Reminiscing how she knew Eric B back in her radio days, Williams recently admitted, “So, I never really knew Ra back in the day, I knew Eric B, intimately.”
“A couple of very severe things happened to me while I was involved with Eric B, life lessons and you’ll see it because the movie’s a teachable moment. While it’s gonna be very dramatic, it’s a teachable moment.” The movie reflects on her relationship with DJ and rapper Eric B, how she went through an abortion and struggled through a series of miscarriages. She calls abortion 'one of the loneliest experiences in my life'. Williams later rued terminating the pregnancy as she had a tough time having a child in the future. A series of miscarriages left her feeling that she wouldn't experience motherhood again.

Why did Eric B cheat on Wendy Williams?
This is not the first time Williams has spoken about it. She previously shed light on her relationship with Eric B in 1999 on her own radio show and spilled the beans about how he cheated on her quite often. Previously, Williams has said Eric B “did [her] dirty” but she has fondly back on their relationship.
Confessing that she was his “side-chick”, Williams said, “Of course he had other women... I was still on top of my game in the radio career,” adding, “I was making decent money... It wasn't like I was some scrub... I only took his pager number because that's all he would give me, so obviously, he's cheating... Although we used to have good times together and go out on some great dates and stuff, a lot of his visits were like after two o'clock in the morning. I would just accept it because the rappers in the studio... but I know that they use that a lot in terms of cheating.”
