Salt-N-Pepa's Cheryl James and Sandra Denton had sounded optimistic when they spoke to Billboard in December about a reunion with DJ Spinderella despite the latter's 2019 lawsuit against the two. But though James said "time heals all wounds," if you ask Deidra Roper -- the woman behind the turntables -- it's going to take a little more than time to get the group back together.

Salt-N-Pepa’s DJ Spinderella Bashes Group Over Lifetime Biopic

DJ Spinderella isn’t happy about the new Salt-N-Pepa biopic. Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton formulated the now-iconic female hip hop supergroup Salt-N-Pepa in 1985. It took 3 decades, but they are finally getting their flowers via their very own biopic. Sadly, it seems not everyone will be reveling in the celebrations, as the group’s longtime DJ speaks on social media.
