Rapper DMX has accused Beyonce Knowles of softening up her boyfriend JAY-Z, because the "sucker for love" never would have worn flip-flops before dating the R+B singer.
DMX - real name Earl Simmons - claims he can no longer identify with his one-time friend.
He says, "It's Beyonce. He's a sucker for love. Thugs don't do flip-flops.
"Yo, no matter how much vacation I'm on - we been to St Thomas, Bahamas, all the little islands - I don't wear no flip-flops. I'm never that comfortable, ever, not even in my house."
