On Thursday, Bebe stopped by the Morning Mash Up on SiriusXM Hits 1 and revealed what sparked her dad's controversial comments.

"I shouldn't have done that, I love my dad," Bebe said. "He hasn't talked to me in two weeks."

"He was upset because I posted a picture on my Instagram of me laying on a bed...suggestive," Bebe went on to share, adding that there was a cross above her in the picture. "I was inspired by Madonna 'Like a Prayer,' it's just art! And I think my dad always looks at me like his daughter."

Bebe tried to explain to her dad that it's just art, asking him not to "hate" her.

"My dad loves me, I love him...I'm just like, scared to go home," Bebe admitted. "I'm so scared!"
