Reality TV star Erica Mena is standing by damning allegations she made on Twitter earlier this year about her ex-fiance, Shad Moss. At the time, Mena claimed that the rapper turned actor physically abused her, an allegation Moss vehemently denies.
HipHollywood caught up with Mena on Wednesday night at the All Def Movie Awards where she made it clear that while she has no plans of retracting her claims, she does regret airing out her personal drama on social media. “Do I go back on that [abuse allegation] specifically? No, those allegations weren’t just falsely thrown out there. The way I did it, I regret it, but the truth is the truth,” she tells us exclusively.
As for other claims and declarations spilled on the social networking website, the beauty explains, “I wish it didn’t happen.” According to Mena, these were two “very emotional” people going through it and “didn’t take a moment to think things through before we reacted.”
“I kind of wish I never said anything. But it is what it is. Now I just wish him the very best. It was a great ride while it lasted and not everything works. We didn’t. Everything falls into place, everything happens for a reason. I learned so much in that relationship that I think moving forward I’m going to do things a lot different.”
As for life after the public split, Mena says, “going into 2016 it was just all about myself. It’s been a great liberating moment, I’m learning a lot, and I’m just taking the time to really take care of myself.”
Erica adds, “I hope it shows because I’m really refocusing everything and things are coming together for the first time, actually I feel like things are falling into place perfectly.”
The 28-year-old says she has some big things in the works but can’t reveal them just yet.
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
