At the 2023 BET Awards held in Los Angeles, JT, and Lil Uzi Vert found themselves involved in a passionate disagreement, which escalated to JT throwing her phone in their direction.
The couple, known for their on-again, off-again relationship, were seated in the audience when the argument ensued. Video footage captured the moment when JT hurled her phone toward Uzi, accompanied by strong words such as “b***h-a** n***a” and “groupie.” Fellow attendees witnessed the intense altercation.
Shortly after the incident, a video posted on BET’s official TikTok account displayed Lil Uzi Vert conversing with JT, who appeared visibly distressed. However, it remains uncertain whether the clip was filmed before or after the phone incident.
The status of their relationship seemed to have mended later, as the couple was seen leaving the awards show together. Speculation among fans suggests that the disagreement may have stemmed from a photo of Lil Uzi Vert sitting beside Ice Spice during the event, which was posted by the “Munch” artist on Instagram. Notably, JT had liked Spice’s post, as sharp-eyed fans noticed.
During their BET Awards performance, Uzi unveiled an unreleased track and made a reference to the Bronx rap star, rapping, “I’m fucking the dogshit out of this bitch, her wig came off twice/ She had a lil’ fro, she look like Ice Spice.” Despite the public conflict, JT had previously expressed her love for Lil Uzi Vert while celebrating his 27th birthday in July of the previous year.
In an emotional post, she declared, “I love you, Uzi,” JT wrote. “I’m crying making this post because you are literally a dream come true! I feel like with everything I been through in life you are one of my greatest rewards! I wake up everyday to either your frown or smile …either works for me, as long as you’re right there.”
