Chilli recently cleared up a few misconceptions about her relationships with Usher and boxer Floyd Mayweather.
The TLC singer, who also starred on VH1’s “What Chilli Wants,” said that her close relationship with Floyd, which viewers got a peek at during the series, was just a friendship, contrary to popular belief.
“I am always going to be cool with Floyd. That’s my boy. I love him. He loves me. We did not have anything romantic going on,” Chilli told Bossip.com.
While fans of the show may have assumed that Floyd and Chilli had been intimate at some point, she said their friends have always known the truth and Floyd never let that rumor to go unchecked.
“He never ever allowed anybody in his circle to assume that we slept together,” she said, joking that Floyd denied he’d ever be a “P_$$% thief.”
Usher is another story. The two R&B singers dated for two years, but Chilli clarified that his ’04 album Confessions was not about their relationship.
“We were together when he recorded that album,” she told Us Weekly. “All of those songs on Confessions, that was about Jermaine Dupri’s situation. Usher was just singing it.”
The songs on the successful album weren’t about their romance, so why did Chilli and Usher end things?
“We broke up because I guess it was that time or whatever,” said Chilli. “He was that real love for me.”
