Reports have been circulating that Rob Kardashian has been dating Mehgan James, star of reality shows “Bad Girls Club” and “Basketball Wives”.
The story was first reported by In Touch, with People quoting a source who claimed that “Mehgan’s been supporting Rob and his business for some time now. They’ve been really close friends for about three months.”
Back in March, Kardashian reportedly split with Blac Chyna, with whom he shares a six-month-old daughter.
But is he really dating James? Not according to Kardashian himself, who used social media to put the kibosh on the rumour.
“Wait reading online about some chick I’m dating Megan something,” he wrote on Twitter.
“Not true,” he added, “never even met her or heard of her before.”
Following Kardashian’s outright denial of any relationship, word through the grapevine accused James of planting the story to help boost her celebrity. Those rumours did not sit well with the “Bad Girls Club” star, who vehemently shutdown any finger pointing.
“Okay look, this is getting ridiculous! And the fact that it’s Monday and y’all are still talking about this is beyond me,” James posted in a now seemingly deleted Instagram post. “So since you guys wanna talk, let’s talk.”
“I did not fake anything. Like I said I never confirmed that I was dating Rob. Anyone that asked I told them it was not true and not to mention, the media is trying to make me look like the villain here when they are the ones who pieced together a story with no receipts,” James wrote. “It takes two people to fake a relationship, anyone who fakes a relationship by themselves is a complete idiot!”
“I’ve been working in entertainment since I was 18. I’ve done a multitude of TV shows as well as a couple films,” she continued. “As well as have had over half a million social media followers over two years… Oh wait, I have a college degree and am a vendor for one of the most popular clothing companies online right now so for fame? Ya’ll are reaching!”
“During the duration of this rumour I asked a couple friends that I know in PR what to do and they told me the best thing to do is not say anything, don’t entertain it and it will go away. The fact that this is still being talked should raise question marks to anyone who’s smart.”
“Like I said in a previous post, I’m just ‘Mehgan something’ that most of you never even heard of!” she said. “How would I have the power to make up a BS story and get media outlets to run it??”
After hearing it from the horses’ mouths, as it were, we can consider this rumour to be officially extinguished.
