As the feud between Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea rages on, the “Fancy” femcee’s basketball-playing boyfriend has chimed in.

“Today” show third-hour co-anchor Tamron Hall took one for the team recently. Doctors diagnosed Hall with a deep muscle tear developed from screaming too much during a weekend trip to a haunted house. Al Roker, Natalie Morales and Willie Geist joined Hall for a taping at the Brighton Asylum haunted house in Passaic, N.J., Oct. 17.
On the way home, Hall complained of stomach pain, which got worse the next morning. She went to the hospital, got checked out and was told she had a deep muscle tear.
The house takes an estimated 20 minutes to go through, and Hall was reportedly screaming the whole time.
