Earlier this month honor of social media’s beloved “Throwback Thursday,” former pageant queen-turned-reality star, Kenya Moore shared a vintage photo of herself and hip-hop mogul Jay-Z seated in a car. It turns out that the 42-year-old beauty appeared as the lead model in Jermaine Durpri and Jay-Z’s `1998 summer jam, “Money Ain’t a Thang.” Basking in the memories of her video vixen days, Moore praised Jay and Jermaine for being “nice guys.” She was also sure to note that the picture was taken “pre Beyoncé.”
Of course, people found it suspicious that she felt the need to explain that the photo was taken prior to Jay-Z getting with his wife Beyoncé and before long, rumors began to circulate that Kenya and Jay dated in the past. After allowing the rumors to fester and spread for about ten days, Moore took to her Twitter page to deny having ever been romantically involved with the “Open Letter” rapper.
We’re sure celebs get sick of people making assumptions and spreading rumors about them, but it really seems like Kenya did a lot of contributing to this one on her own.
On another note: Kenya is aging beautifully! She’s just as gorgeous today as she was 15 years ago!
