Mya wants you to know that she has not at any point in time ever slept with Jay Z.
Remember how Beyonce sent the world into a tizzy this week when she ad libbed a few new words into “Resentment” and everyone thought it was her very veiled admission that Hov had cheated on her? Somehow Mya’s name got dragged into the situaiton when the Daily Mail pegged her as his long-time mistress, alleging that he takes care of her financially.
The suppositions typically make for great gossip and kitchen-table talk, but one of Mya’s fans wanted to get to the bottom of things. She did not mince words. “Heard you and Jay Z had an 11-year affair. “Are you his side chick or nah?” She asked Mya on Instagram today.
Mya began her statement by denying that she would ever be creeping with Hov, replying, “Never did, never was, never will.”
She credited the baseless rumors to “Illegitimate, thirsty sources with no facts and that’s the ‘media’ for you – especially today.”
The “Fallin” singer continued her denial by insisting that she’s an independent woman who would never allow herself to be anyone’s mistress. “I play second to no one,” she wrote, “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.”

Mya is fed with all of the claims and she thinks that only a certain kind of person finds any pleasure in mean-spirited gossip. “Miserable, unhappy people need someone to judge to deter the attention away from their own misery and feel better about their miserable lives,” she If they did it to Jesus, they’ll do it to anyone. God bless.”
