Mike Epps is clearing the air after his big blowout argument with his daughter Bria, who recently released audio of the comedian/actor of threatening to “f**k her up” and calling her a “disrespectful bitch.”

Though Epps pretty much goes all the way in on his teenage daughter in the audio recording, what many don’t know (if you just listen to the tape alone), is that Bria had apparently riled Mike Epps up and threatened to “expose” him before she started recording the conversation that we heard on tape.

TMZ recently caught up with Mike, who — with a smile on his face — says he wants to let bygones be bygones.

“It’s hard being a dad, especially the dad of a teenager,” he said. “I love my daughter, but sometimes father and daughters have disagreements. I still love her though. Love you Bria!”
