Tension between Tamar Braxton and Lolo Jones has been boiling in the Celebrity Big Brother house, and it reached an all-time high on Sunday night's episode.
Fans began speculating that Jones was kicked out of the house on Saturday after clips were shared online showing the singer and Olympic hurdler engaging in a heated argument. It was rumored that Jones slapped Braxton so hard that her glasses came off, but fans claim the live feed was cut off before showing footage of the alleged fight.
So THIS just happened. Lolo explodes with Tamar...BB cut to "BRB"
Well, now we know more details about exactly what went down and (spoiler alert) Lolo was not kicked out of the house.
All of the drama started after Kato Kaelin won the latest challenge and earned his place as Head of Household. Soon after, everyone started making arrangements to secure their place and dodge the next chopping block. Braxton tried to let Jones and Natalie Eva Marie know that Dina Lohan is the person in question who voted against the group during the eviction of Jonathan Bennett on Friday's episode, but Jones didn't want to hear it. It was 4:30 a.m. and Jones was clearly irritated.
"I've had growing frustrations with Tamar because every day Tamar is mad at someone," Jones said. "I'm starting to feel like a punching bag and it's exhausting."
The argument escalated and Jones eventually called Braxton a "b**ch." That's when Braxton walked out of the room and went on to start packing her bags to go home. Why? Because she said she doesn't fight people.
Jones went on to apologize, and said she was only frustrated because she was trying to communicate the conversation she had with Dina. "I don't want you to leave," Jones told Braxton. "I want to be your friend but I definitely handled that wrong. I'm sorry."
Braxton accepted her apology and instead of going home, the ladies hugged it out instead. Fans on Twitter called out the show for editing out the extended footage of the fight.
