The Story Behind The Cold War Between Goldie & J Martins

I saw this summarized story of the cold war between Goldie and J Martins while trying to mind my business on Linda's blog.
The gist is that Goldie invited J Martins to South Africa in November to appear in the video of a song they did together called Give It To Me. J Martins asked for business class but Goldie said she couldn't afford it so J Martins agreed to come reluctantly.
Then he told Goldie to pick him up at the airport but Goldie sent someone instead so J Martin refused to follow the man Goldie sent to the airport to pick him up, saying he didn't know the man and didn't want to be kidnapped *fair enough*. So J Martins took a taxi, then checked himself into a $700 hotel, refusing to check into the hotel Goldie had booked for him so Goldie and other members of her crew then decided to go to J Martins' hotel to see him but he refused to see them. He said he was tired, and was not feeling well, so couldn't see anyone. 
Then the morning of the shoot, J Martins refused to come to set. He asked Goldie and her crew to pay for his hotel accommodation. $700 x 5 nights = $3, 500. Goldie said she couldn't afford it. After much begging and talks, J Martins agreed to two nights refund which was $1400.

After that was settled, J Martins didn't show up on set till 3pm that afternoon. When he got on set, he refused to enter the video until they gave him the $1400. Then he complained about the costumes, said they weren't his style, he complained about this, complained about that, he refused to do this, refused to do that...he was rude to the crew, he was talking on the phone instead of shooting...etc...etc.

As if that was not bad enough, the white guys shooting the video got tired of all the whole drama and packed their stuff and left without completing the video. 
Though J Martins had already shot some scenes but not all. Goldie is said to be pretty angry at J Martins right now because she lost a lot of money as a result of his behavior and she didn't even get an apology from him.
And as a result they are now enemies.
