There’s no Xscaping this family drama.
Tamika Scott unpacks an explosive fight with sister and Xscape bandmate LaTocha Scott-Bivens — whom she has accused of stealing $30,000 — in Leak Herald’s exclusive preview of Bravo’s “SWV & Xscape: The Queens of R&B.”
Tamika, 47, sits down to discuss the matter with her mother, Gloria, who she feels has shown “favoritism” to LaTocha, 49, over the years.
“Tocha is crushed at you,” Gloria says, to which her younger daughter replies, “No, she’s not.”
Gloria goes on to condemn Tamika for talking about LaTocha’s husband, talent manager Rocky Bivens, in relation to the siblings’ feud.
“The only time I ever say anything about him is when he inserts himself into my business,” Tamika clarifies in the sneak peek.
During a heated exchange on the premiere episode, Tamika alleged that LaTocha and Bivens, 50, conspired to cash checks of hers — worth tens of thousands of dollars — into his bank account. Meanwhile, the couple has vehemently denied the claim.
In our clip, Gloria implies that Tamika has created a false narrative to help her “sleep at night,” a comment that unnerves the singer.

“If I can sleep at night? He’s in my business, he’s taking my money from me and my family,” she fumes. “But if I can sleep at night?”
Gloria retorts, “Ain’t nobody taking money from you.”
Xscape, also including Kandi Burruss and Tameka “Tiny” Harris, was founded in 1991 and broke up for the first time in 1998. The girl group — responsible for such hits as “Just Kickin’ It” and “Who Can I Run To?” — reunited in 2001 but pressed pause again five years later.
However, they reconvened in 2017 for a special performance at the BET Awards followed by their first Bravo docuseries, “Xscape: Still Kickin’ It.”
In their new series with SWV, the platinum-selling foursome navigates drama while preparing for a historic live show with fellow R&B queens SWV that took place Sept. 8, 2022, in Ontario, Canada.
The concert was supposed to kick off their joint 43-city tour to celebrate 30 years in the industry. As of March 2023, it’s unclear if there are still plans for the tour.
“It’s tough,” Burruss, 46, told us at the Los Angeles premiere event for “The Queens of R&B” earlier this month. “There were a lot of issues in our group that we had to work through during filming and we still have issues to work through.”
Tamika said she and LaTocha are in a “worse” place today than they were when production for the reality show began.
However, LaTocha told Leak Herald that she believes “there is always hope” that she and her sister will make amends one day.
“SWV & Xscape: The Queens of R&B” airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
