*Patti LaBelle recently had an interview with Drink Champs, during which she talked about how she previously assumed that singer Jazmine Sullivan, 35, hated her.

The 78-year-old said, “I thought Jazmine Sullivan hated me.” However, as reported by theJasmineBrand, she acknowledged that her assumptions about the singer were wrong. The lady further added, “Lemme say something. Last week, she made my heart pound, hard. She called me. The same gentleman, Marquese, who made this outfit and the outfit that I wore for Essence the last couple of weeks ago, he’s good friends with Jazmine. So he said ‘Jazmine and I always used to talk about ‘who’s coming to Patti LaBelle’s party first? You or me?’”

Patti continued: “So she’s always had this love for me but whenever I would see her, she’s shy and I would give her all these props and stuff and I’d say ‘baby girl don’t like me.’ My feelings were hurt until last week.”

he added: “When we talked on the phone she said ‘Patti LaBelle you’re my everything.’ She said ‘I love you so much I get shy when I’m around you.’ So you see how things are misunderstood in this business so ugly business and sometimes people wanna make us hate each other and say ‘oh, she doesn’t like her.’”
