Desus & Mero Split Had Been In The Works For a Year

The Kid Mero Says That Desus & Mero Spilt Had Been In The Works For a Year

The cancelation of Desus & Mero’s show came as a shock to their fans, however, according to The Kid Mero, the pair had wanted to go their separate ways for over a year and have officially split.

In a recent interview on the Basic! podcast, Mero talked about the Showtime duo. During the podcast, Mero revealed that the duo had openly discussed pursuing other ventures.

“Desus and I had discussed pursuing separate interests over a year before the show coming to an end and that conversation solidified us in signing overall agreements that recognized our intent to operate independent of one another,” Mero said. “As far back as June of last year, we were both pitching or looking to join existing projects as individuals.

Mero said, “It’s not like I’m breaking up with my girlfriend on the phone. It was a strategy and one that we all agreed on.”

He said that the duo had reached the end of their partnership naturally and that they didn’t want to try and extend something that was no longer there.

“At the end of the day, when things are winding down you got to recognize that they are winding down and not supermax Patrick Ewing when he has two [knee pads] and his career is coming to a close.”

Bad Management ?

The update from comes after a report claimed the duo’s management had been the cause of the breakup. The Kid Mero is a popular comedian, social media personality, and one-half of the comedy duo Desus & Mero.

According to five different sources, Desus and Mero’s longtime manager Victor Lopez has been exhibiting problematic behavior. Victor was even asked by Showtime to stop attending tapings or appearing in meetings.

Victor Lopez was accused of being an “asshole” on set, and it was alleged that he would “bully, scream, and make people on the show feel bad.” Desus, was on Showtime’s side when they decided to fire Lopez, however, Mero stood by their manager.

As the report came out The Kid Mero gave an interview about what happened leading up to the breakup.

“It’s just a natural progression,” Mero said. “It’s like we said on the podcast, ‘It’s Hollywood, the baby.’ You develop strengths and things that you want to explore and do. And then things just happen naturally. It’s like Spike Jonze said on the Viceland show, ‘Everything is finite.’ What’s the corny cliche? Don’t be sad that it’s gone. Be happy that you experienced it.”

Charlamagne Tha God Hot Take

Charlamagne Tha God recently spoke about the break up of Desus and Mero on Jimmy Kimmel Live. He argued that the continuous coverage of this topic demonstrated how negative and toxic Hip Hop culture has become.

“Like, Desus & Mero been on TV from Vice to Showtime and this show is critically acclaimed, they got a New York Times best-selling book, brand deals, and have done some amazing things together and I’ve never seen the culture collectively report on those great things the way they’ve done this break-up,” Charlamagne said. “That’s just the way it is. People will scream about what they think is your failures and they’ll whisper about your success.”
