How Thirsty Shemar Moore Got Played By Alicia Keys
Shemar Moore may have an insatiable thirst for the ladies, but there’s at least one woman out there not interested in quenching it.
Last night on the red carpet of the People’s Choice Awards, Moore revealed that he was once shot down by a young Alicia Keys.
“I was at a listening party and I was hosting Soul Train. I fell in love with her eyes,” said Shemar of the meeting 10 years prior. “She played the piano and she had the cornrows, the voice. I was like ‘She is the business.’ So I went up to her and I got it together and I said, ‘I don’t know what your man situation is like but when you’re not working I’d love to take you out some time.'”
“And she basically looked at me and she went, ‘Look here, son … I respect your flirt game, but my man situation is handled.’ And that is a true story,” said Moore.
The Criminal Minds star says he’s over the slight, but admits he’s still a bit jealous of Alicia’s husband, Swizz Beatz.
