Funky Dineva Announces ‘Tea-G-I-F’ Exit Due to Financial Conflicts | Video

FOX SOUL

*YouTube personality Funky Dineva is speaking out about his future with Fox Soul’s “Tea-G-I-F.”

The influencer revealed recently that he’s exiting the pop culture talk show due to financial conflicts. His replacement has not yet been named, and co-hosts Claudia Jordan and Al Reynolds will remain on the show.

As Distractify reports, a day after Funky Dineva, Al, and Claudia shared their New Year resolutions last month, Funky announced he was exiting the show.

“When Tea-Gif resumes, I, Funky Dineva Ross, will not be there,” he said on his popular YouTube channel.

According to Funky, he was under a six-month contract with the network, and his pay dropped once the show went from airing two nights to five days a week. He was essentially getting paid the same amount to do more work. So rather than be exploited, he walked away from “Tea-G-I-F.”

In his YouTube post, Funky said there is no “love lost” between Fox Soul and his former co-hosts. 

“I want you guys to continue, soulmates, supporting the show,” Funky said. “I don’t know who will be appearing in my place. I don’t know anything.”

“I definitely wish the show the best,” he added. “Y’all continue to support whomever it is they choose to fill the seat with, and hopefully, those guys go on to make some magic.”

Watch his full remarks in the YouTube clip above.

The Instagram account @TGIFANS shared the video of Funky’s shocking departure announcement. In the comments, Al Reynolds wrote, “I am devastated. Funky will be greatly missed. He taught me sooo much!”

Another IG user added, “The show won’t be the same 😞. But I’ll still watch because I do still enjoy Claudia and Al.”

A third commented, “Smh Fox Soul really fumbled this one.”

Do you agree? Sound off in the comments.
