R&B singer Keyshia Cole finally broke her silence about rumors she was pregnant with rapper Bow Wow’s baby. The star dismembered the gossip by taking to Instagram Monday, nearly a week after the blog Media Take Out first reported the news.
She posted a picture of a tweet from BET that asked if the story was true or false. “No, I’m not #Preggo by Mr @shadmoss,” she wrote to her 2.8 million IG followers. “Baby would have some beautiful eyes tho, He’s one handsome fellow. But, no, we’re not dating nor expecting a child together.” The post received nearly 10,000 likes and garnered hundreds of comments. Most people thanked her for setting the record straight.
Bow Wow, whose real name is Shad Moss, previously denied the pregnancy rumor. He took to Facebook early Monday to say he was not in relationship with the 34-year-old singer -- or anyone else. “I am single and have no time to fall in love. I’m focused. ... ----- just ain’t important to me at this time. Slows me down knocks me off my hustle. Besides ... I love all my women. All of them,” he wrote. Like Cole’s post, his statement was like nearly 10,000 times and attracted hundreds of comments.
Previously, Bow Wow, 28, was engaged to former “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star Erica Mena. The two became engaged after six months of dating. Things became rocky in September when she announced her miscarriage on social media. Bow Wow slammed his then-fiancée for sharing their personal business on Instagram. By December, the two had split for good. Now, apparently, he is just playing the field.
“Love and Hip Hop: New York” airs Mondays on VH1 at 8 p.m. EST.
