Did They Or Didn’t They? Celebs Who May Have Lied About Dating Another Celeb
For a celebrity, the rumor mill can be a b**ch. But when a celebrity makes up a rumor about another celebrity – now that’s just cold. Check out our list of 11 celebs who’ve claimed to have dated another celebrity who didn’t seem to agree.
Who could forget this mess? Back before Nick Cannon and “dem babies,” Eminem released a song suggesting that he’d slept with Mariah Carey. Mariah, desperate to squash the rumor, then released a song and video of her own titled Obsessed. The 2009 joint asked the question “why you so obsessed with me?” and featured Mariah dressed up as a man resembling Slim Shady, and looking crazy as hell.
To this day, we still don’t know what happened between these two, though we do know it definitely didn’t end well.
There will always be a lot of mystery surrounding hip-hop icons Biggie and Tupac, but one mystery that remains especially salacious was Tupac’s relationship with Biggie’s wife Faith Evans. Per Pac’s infamous 1996 diss record Hit ‘Em Up, he said he had slept with Faith. But Faith has remained adamant in interviews and even her memoir that she never slept with Tupac. Who do you believe?
A good portion of this season’s LHHATL drama centered on Benzino’s claims of having slept with Joseline and Joseline’s claims of never smashing a man without a neck. Karlie was the one to notify Joseline of the rumor, who then took that information to Stevie J, who then went and confronted a sorry looking Benzino about it. Though Zino denied lying at first, he did eventually come clean.
Wacka flocka / Selena Gomez
Earlier this year, tweets from Waka Flocka suggested that he might have been sleeping with Justin Bieber’s then-boo Selena Gomez. It started with fans tweeting messages like: “@WakaFlockaBSM f—ed Selena Gomez #SQUAAAADDDDD”, all of which Waka retweeted. But after fueling the rumor for a while, Waka came clean, saying “Selena Gomez #INeverSmashedHer Respect ms Gomez…… thank you.” So we guess that cleared that up.
J. Cole/Vanessa Simmons
Quite possibly one of the lamest rap beefs ever was when Diggy Simmons clapped back at J. Cole for suggesting that he and Vanessa had a sexual relationship in college. Diggy claimed the relationship never happened and Cole stuck silently by his lyrics. Ultimately, the beef fizzled out in like a week.
Back when 50 Cent and The Game were feuding over some nonsense, a war of words led to R&B singer Mya getting caught up in the mess. We knew Mya had appeared in Game’s Dreams video, but the singer had never mentioned dating him. Still, Fiddy completely blew up her spot in a diss record directed at Game, saying “I f**ked her first.” Despite all the hype, Mya has cooly denied the 50 Cent rumors and says that she’s always just been friends with Game.
Fred Durst/Britney Spears
Back in the early 2000’s, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst alleged to have not only slept with Britney Spears after meeting her during a studio session, but to actually have genuine feelings for the pop star. The interesting part? Britney, to this day, denies the entire thing. One of her spokespeople even released the following statement regarding the controversy: “It’s sad that he’s decided to make up stories, and the situation feels very junior high school.” Yikes.
Kola Boof/Djimon Honsou
Around the time of Kimora Lee Simmon’s and Djimon Honsou’s breakup, author Kola Boof revealed in seriously intimate detail that she had been carrying on an affair with Djimon for four of the years that he and Kimora were together. Her official statement also included her supposed reasoning for the affair, Kimora’s sexual preferences and Russell Simmon’s attempts to “threaten” her. In response, Djimon denied ever knowing Kola and called her statements “vicious lies.”
A$AP Ferg/ Teyana Taylor
During Summer Jam 2013, A$AP Ferg called out Teyana Taylor, who despite her many relationships (some rumored and some real) maintains that she’s a virgin, saying “Who you know got big t**s – Teyana. Sucked on ‘em when I lived out in Harlem.” A$AP Ferg later admitted that the lyrics were bull-ish during an interview with the Breakfast Club.
We get that nothing is safe when it comes to hip-hop beef, but within his 2006 diss record directed at Jay Z, Cam’ron may have taken things a bit too far when he suggested that he had slept with Beyoncé. When things cooled down a bit, Cam’ron admitted that the lyrics weren’t true.
Kevin Garnett/Lala Anthony
Earlier this year, a mid-game spat between Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony had everyone thinking Kevin was crazy enough to tell Carmelo that his wife “tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.” Lala later revealed that the outrageous comment had never been made.
“Garnett did not say that about me. He just said some things to my husband that he didn’t like . . . It happens in the heat of battle. People don’t know what goes on on that court. Garnett’s known for [trash talking]. So it got under my husband’s skin and things happen but it wasn’t about me.”
