Lauren London has landed the role of Kiera on season 6 of "The Game," but her personal life continues to make as many headlines as her career.
“It’s so new. I’ve never done that before," Lauren told The Q Side of her new role on the BET series. "I’ve done guest spots on TV, but for me to have that schedule is so different and new. I’m excited. I get to learn a lot about myself in this experience.”
Lauren’s name has also been popping up lately linked with R&B singer Trey Songz, but the ATL star continued to brush off rumors of anything other than a friendship.
“[Trey and I] are not together. No, we just took a picture together. [Those rumors] don’t upset me because I know him, he’s a great guy, but no, I laugh at that. Me and my brother were walking down the street one day and they said I was dating my brother and I was like, ‘That’s funny,’” she said.
That statement is a bit different from the one the singer recently made during an interview with KMEL radio in San Francisco.
“Lauren London is a very important person to me," Trey said. "I love her to death. Is she my woman? No. We are great friends, and we have been lovers before.”
Somebody needs to get their story straight!
Dealing with the pressures of being a celebrity can be hard, but Lauren says she keeps her faith in Hollywood by having normal friends who don’t care about the rumors or blogs.
“There is always a rumor that I’m dating someone that I never met before and people have their judgments and ideas of who I am and they know nothing,” she said.
It is well known that Lauren, 27, has a child with rapper Lil’ Wayne, who she’s known since she was a teenager. Yet she doesn’t understand why people are still so fascinated by the pair.
“I’ve known him since I was 15 years old, but no one knows that. No one knows that because I wasn’t in the public eye then, so it wasn’t all that interesting to take pictures of me,” she said.
Their son, Cameron, is almost 3 years old now, and knows one of Lauren’s best-kept secrets…she can’t sing.
"My son asked me to sing to him, and then like afterward he’s like, ‘Okay Mommy, can you read me a book?’” she laughed.
