Handler, 45, took to social media saying to the In Da Club rapper, 45, ‘You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend,’ after he said that he’ll vote for Trump over former Vice President Joe Biden because of his favorable tax policies for the rich.
This came just two days after the In Da Club hitmaker tweeted a shot of the tax rates proposed by Democratic candidate Joe Biden and running mate Kamala Harris.
The Biden proposals could see those earning more than $400,000 a year hit with rates of 62.6 percent for those who live in California residents, and 62 percent for people who live in New York City.
