Mya denies affair with Jay Z
With rumors of Jay Z stepping outside of his marriage to Beyoncé, thanks to her recent change of lyrics during their concert tour, one performer is having to deny being the rapper's mistress. Mya stepped up on Instagram on Thursday to squash the stories.
Under her social media handle "kissmya," the singer responded to a fan who asked about the gossip.
Mya wrote, "Never did, never was, never will. 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."
The "Fallen" singer then continued, "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."
Besides Beyoncé fanning the cheating flames, a blind item posted on MediaTakeOut.com stirred the pot even more. The post talked about the music mogul having a mistress who was a "very short named R&B singer who hasn't had a hit in awhile and doesn't really even act or record any longer. She basically lives off the generosity of Jay-Z and a couple of other guys."
Jay Z never comments on situations like this, but Queen Bey often responds to fans in photos on her Instagram page. Her response on Thursday was to share a photo of the couple holding hands while wading through the water at sunset.
All hail the queen!
