Amber Rose denies rumors that she sent a naked photo of herself to the man believed to be Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend.
“I DID NOT send pics to anyones boyfriend pls stop with the lies. Its so ridiculous. smh,” she tweeted.
The story apparently originated from MediaTakeOut, a site whose stories celebrities often refute.
“Yall been doing this to me for 3 year now it shld be illegal to write fake stories about ppl the media never wants to see anyone happy,” she wrote.
Amber continued and wrote that the photo, which shows her on a sofa, facing its back with her legs open and high heels on, was taken from her laptop by an employee that she’d trusted and allowed to use her computer. "I caught this person sending my pics to themselves and I fired this person immediately," she said.
“Wiz & I & both of our families have known about this for 2 months now. We tried to prepare ourselves for this day. Those pictures r 2/12 years old,” Amber explained. "I’m really hurt & embarr#!@%*#ed because I have so many young girls that look up to me. I would never put those pics out of myself."
MTO cited an anonymous source as confirming that Amber sent the photos to Nicki’s boyfriend, Safaree Samuel. However, MTO is now retracting its original report.
“Amber claims that she did NOT send these pics to Nicki’s boyfriend. Even though our source was reliable, we’re gonna give Amber the benefit of the doubt on this,” read a statement on the site.
Nicki Minaj commented on the issue, tweeting, "I don’t address dumb s_@t. I always assume intelligent ppl understand these ‘stories’ are 4 entertainment purposes only."
You’ll have to see the pics elsewhere. S2S just can’t go there.
