All Stars 5 might be over but the drama between Alexis Mateo and India Ferrah continues…
Half way through All Stars 5, India accused Alexis and Mayhem Miller of plotting to vote Shea Couleé out of the competition. Of course, that tactic didn't work and Shea eventually won the crown and the $100,000 prize money.
Alexis managed to clear her name in the finale when all the contestants returned and hashed out their differences, however, the damage had already been done because Alexis had already been eliminated – one week before India's departure where she made the explosive claims.
On Tuesday (Aug 4), Alexis called out India (who she said she would not name, but later did name) in an hour-long Instagram Live. You can watch the full video here.
She said: "A lot of people posted, 'You got robbed.' I don't think I got robbed. I think I got cheated, bitch. Like, now thinking about it was cheated. Now I don't know how my story would end. I'm not a sore loser, I'm a winner baby."
Speaking about being called a "sore loser" for bringing up the subject, she added: "A lot of my friends are like: 'This is very white privilege.' I am tired of this whole bullshit situation, about, 'If Alexis says something she’s a sore loser because she’s fucking brown. If I was white everybody would be like, 'Oh I feel so sorry for her.' No bitch. No more."
Alexis went on to say that she felt that had she stayed in the competition, she would have excelled in the stand-up comedy challenge, which occurred the week following her elimination, which means she'd have made it to the top three. However, Alexis stressed that her statement was not to discredit Blair St Clair who was eliminated after the comedy challenge.
Alexis then claimed that India's husband, drag queen Savannah F James, sent her a message asking her to stop talking about India. She said: "Let me tell you one thing and I want to get this straight because this is the purpose of my video. Nobody is telling me what I'm not entitled to. I'm entitled to whatever I think I'm entitled to. This is my story and I'm entitled to do with my story what I want."
Alexis finished by saying India was free to record whatever video she wanted in response. She continued: "There's no more friendship. You cheated me out of $100,000 bitch, we aren’t friends no more. Enough is enough."
