Exclusive: Erica Mena Opens Up About Bow Wow & Escort Rumors
Since announcing their engagement earlier this year, Erica Mena and Shad “Bow Wow” Moss have faced a barrage of hate and criticism. While the rapper has gone on the defense via social media, Mena sat down with HipHollywood to discuss their relationship and how they handle the drama.
While chatting with HH, the Love and Hip Hop star admitted that sometimes the comments get to her — especially the rumors that she slept with 324 men and that she used to be an escort. “To have that be something that’s spread all over and people believe it, to me, it get’s to me. But after a while I just realized, I’m the one person in this Love and Hip Hop scenario that really has the ‘love’ and ‘hip hop’, so who better to pick on than me, right?,” Erica stated.
But, while she gets angry about the lies, Shad stays calm. “Bow’s in the house and he’s laughing at me because I was so upset about it and he’s like babe it’s Black Twitter they do this to people all the time.” This comment comes on the heels of the artist formerly known as Bow Wow posting a message about his disdain for so called “Black Twitter” and how they hate on him and his boo.
