Jay Z cheating rumors are nothing new to us. But we did notice quite a spike in the quantity and frequency of those reports since the Met Gala after-party altercation. Then, earlier this week, those rumors intensified after fans noticed that Beyoncé switched around some of the lyrics to her heartfelt track, “Resentment,” during one of her On The Run Tour sets. Instead of going with the original lyrics, which go: “been riding out with you for six years,” she changed it to twelve years. Of course, this minor swapping of lyrics could mean absolutely nothing. But it appears that they have fueled yet another round of reports painting the Brooklyn rapper as a cheater. However, this time, R&B singer has been pegged as his longtime mistress.

“When people talk about Jay-Z and his mistresses, they often forget about a mainstay who has been there forever,” popular blog Crazy Days Crazy Nights wrote in a blind item post. “She is the person he calls when he needs to be discreet and thinking about old times. She is that very short named R&B singer who hasn’t had a hit in a while 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. She peaked at A-.

Mya”

The report was later picked up by sites like Access Hollywood and Daily Mail. As to be expected, when Mya caught wind of the rumors, she wasn’t too pleased.

“Never did, never was, never will,” she wrote on Instagram in response to the reports. “Illegitimate thirsty sources with no facts and that’s the ‘media’ for you—especially today. I play second to no one.”

As for the allegations that she’s living off of Jay Z, Mya says:

“[I] pay my own bills, have my own label, own management company, rely on God only and respect myself & marriage way 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.”

We can totally understand why she’d be upset by the rumors.

  • Chanda

    Heard this ‘rumor’ on the radio couple of weeks ago and I didn’t believe it then. Just seemed kind of off to me.

  • tommy_one

    She’s telling the truth. Insiders know she’s way too old for Mr Carter

    • Chanda

      Way too old? She’s about 10 years younger than him!

      • tommy_one

        As I said too old ;-)

        • Guestest

    I really wish all women felt this way about themselves… Men wouldn’t be allowed to get away with the crap they do. Beautiful response Mya!

  • cantcommitttoahairstyle

    “I play second to NO ONE”………YASSSSS Mya! Now if only ALL women can process this mentality in their brains when it comes to these F**K Boys in the world.

  • zkay

    all I wanna say they are human no ones perfect.

  • Don’tBelievetheHype

    They are really going hard on Jay and Bey. They must be making too much money. I don’t profess to know the ins and outs of their relationship, but I don’t think Jay is that stupid. Seriously. Feel however you want about Jay, but you don’t go from the projects to being worth half a billion by being an idiot. These affair rumors only really got going after Solange spazzed out in the elevator. Everyone assumes he must’ve done something to Bey like that’s the only reason on God’s green earth she would’ve been mad. Whatever. Until I see some pictures of him all up on somebody other than Bey, I’m calling BS.

    • Being Honest

      Good reply. I feel the same way

  • fromanotherplanet

    Oooh chile, the media and the haters have really been going for Beyonce’s jugular these past couple of months with all these damning reports and accusations about her family smh it’s really true that when you are at the top, everyone wants to drag you down into the mud. I really don’t know why some of these celebrities cope with these assaults on their characters and their integrity. A mess. I truly hope that they can focus on the love in their lives and not let this ish get to them.

    And on another note, I don’t really know much about Jay-Z’s past in the game (or Beyonce’s for that matter), but one can’t help but think that these cheating “rumors” that y’all keep pulling out of y’all behinds every single day is simply based on the fact that Jay-Z is black man and has been stereotyped as a “thug.” Whether he’s guilty or not is besides the point. What I find interesting is how willing everyone is to believe the cheating rumors because he is a black man and he is a rapper. If you take white male celebs like David Beckham for example (whose cheating accusations had more tangible receipts than Jay-z’s), people are more willing to give him the benefit of the doubt smh

    To be a black person in this world, means you really have to be able to have some degree of inner peace and contentment within yourself because everyone, whites and your fellow blacks (especially your fellow blacks), will always stay aiming daggers into your heart.

    • Sunny

      I agree. I’ve always respected the fact that Jay and Bey don’t waste their time addressing any of this ish. The only ones who believe these stories are the people who don’t like them anyway.

      • KT

        I wonder though, Beyonce had to know that changing her lyrics would cause cheating rumors… She thirsty too…

    • Shawndrea Rachelle

      I agree with you but because of that whole elevator incident, I do believe he cheated. Why else would Beyonce just stand there like he deserved it, and ONLY intervene when he *almost* defended himself? Idk but that just seems weird to me.

    • Being Honest

      Intelligent outlook. Thanks for posting!

  • Rei A

    Jay Z did mess with her tho so she need to stop frontin. He was dating Blu Cantrell at the time and was messing with Mya on the low which resulted in Blu breaking it off and going separate ways.

    • Glim

      wait up, he has an ex named Blu and named his daughter Blue Ivy? Get outa here!!

      • Lisa Bedford Carter

        And..Blue Ivy looks like Drake’s baby pics…. But that’s none of my business, Kermit, pass the tea please.

        • Glim

          Lmao!!! Lisa you a mess lololol

      • Bry Shonyea

        He sure does.!

    • Yonnie

      Sooooo did jay call you personally and tell you that or is that also something you got from the non-fact checking media smh

      • Chanda

        I know. That’s how rumors get started. According to the ‘media’ Jay messed with everybody. Maybe he just took a picture with them for all we know.

  • louvres

    I love me some Mya! Very classy :)

  • Stacy D. Smith

    But if he HAD to have one, I’ll be damned if Mya isn’t more than qualified for the job.

  • Simone Mackey

    Her response was classy! I love Mya!

  • Val

    And also, Mya just released an album last year. I don’t think it was released in the U.S. but she’s still out there making money.

    • &.

      She also released her ep “with love” earlier this year in February. However, people are still going to believe this article like it is the truth. I bet Beyonce stans are stalking her social media accounts and sending bs.

  • Lost Soul

    Wow. I have never heard this rumor before.

    • Lisa Bedford Carter

      NEVER!!!!

    • Bonnie Clydesdale

      Me neither. I think they make this stuff up. Sad because people believe it.

  • hmmm

    Well Said! If they did it to Jesus…
