Earlier today, the Internet was ablaze with reports that Jay had been having a long-term affair with Mya. But as quickly as the rumors spread, the 34-year-old singer took to Instagram to swiftly put out the flames.
Vicious rumors of Mya being Jay’s mistress were claimed to be false, and in response to a user asking Mya if she was Jay’s mistress, 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.” (E! Online)
The Mya-Jay cheating rumors originated from a blind item posted online claiming the 44-year-old rapper had a longtime relationship with 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,” the post claimed.

Jayonce have been at the center of cheating speculation since his Met Gala elevator brawl with Solange Knowles.
There may be trouble in paradise for Jay and Bey but Mya has made it clear that she isn’t the cause of it. She also said “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.” (E! Online)
Mya squashes vicious cheating rumors and comes out on top. The media has a way of influencing people’s opinions while falsifying information. It’s great that Mya could be confident enough to squash the lies and shed light on the truth.
