Mya has slammed rumors suggesting she and Jay-Z have been secretly dating behind Beyonce’s back.
The singer blamed gossip-hungry bloggers for spreading the false speculation.
Mya found herself at the center of cheating allegations this week after a blind item posted on MediaTakeOut.com hinted that she has been Jay-Z’s mistress for 11 years.
The online report didn’t refer to Mya by name, but described the woman as a “very short-named R&B singer who hasn’t had a hit in awhile”, and went on to state: “She basically lives off the generosity of Jay-Z and a couple of other guys.”
One fan asked Mya about the accusations directly via Instagram on Thursday and the singer, who collaborated with Jay-Z on her 2000 song Best of Me (Part 2), responded: “Never did, never was, never will [have an affair with Jay-Z].”
“Illegitimate, thirsty sources with no facts and that’s the <<media>> for you-especially today. I play second to no one, pay my own bills, have my own label, own management company, rely on God only and respect myself & marriage too much for nonsense.
“False rumors are crafted for ratings & numbers. And miserable, unhappy people need someone to judge to deter the attention away from their own misery and feel better about their miserable lives. If they did it to Jesus, they’ll do it to anyone. God bless.”
Speculation about the status of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s marriage began surfacing in May after surveillance footage of Solange Knowles attacking the rapper in a New York elevator emerged online.
