Over the weekend, a ridiculous rumor about Mary J. Blige and Faith Evans getting into a fight at a party thrown by Diddy was cirulating these Internet streets. However, Mary J says the rumor couldn't be further from the truth. More inside...
Why are folks messing around with musical legends?
After the Cardi B vs. Nicki Minaj altercation went viral, there was another fight story thrown in the mix. An alleged R&B diva beatdown.
It's unclear where it all started, but folks on social media started spreading the rumor that Mary J. Blige and Faith Evans got into a fight during a party Diddy supposedly threw in the Hamptons over the weekend. No video footage of said "fight" or the aftermath ever surfaced, so it wasn't very believable in the first place.
Now, Mary J. Blige is addressing the drama.
The Queen of Hip Hop Soul was tapped to walk in Dennis Basso's spring/summer '19 show during New York Fashion Week where she was asked about the alleged altercation. Of course, she said it was false.
"Of course that was made up. I was shooting a movie in Louisiana . . . I just got here today,” Mary told Page Six last night during the NYFW show.
She's currently filming a new horror film titled Body Cam. It's about a group of cops who are involved in covering up a murder by ditching their body cam video footage. Afterwards, they find themselves being haunted by an evil spirit. Sounds interesting.
A rep for Faith Evans also debunked the rumors:
“I have no idea how this rumor started. Puffy didn’t even have a party," Faith's rep told Hollywood Life.
The rep also said Faith was nowhere near the Hamptons. She was at home on the west coast in Newport Beach, California.
So yeah, no R&B Diva Royal Rumble. Thankfully. The culture doesn't need it. They may have had a falling out back in the day, but everything is all good now.
While Mary is used to dressing up in designer threads and getting glammed up, she said she never dreamed of walking in a fashion show.
“I was a tomboy who thought about running in the streets or hopping a fence, playing basketball," she said. "I’m not gonna sit here and lie just because we at a fashion show. I just did not think about it, because I was not that girl.”
She helped close out the show with designer Dennis Basso for the finale walk. And she looked amazing.
And just because she never thought about it, doesn't mean she doesn't have her catwalk perfected.
“I don’t need the runway to walk with a f–k-you mentality. I walk down the street with a f–k-you attitude . . . It’s not ‘F –k the world,’ but ‘This is me, and you can’t stop me from being me.’ I love Fashion Week,” she added. "I still don’t get free stuff . . . I repeat my stuff — you just have to know where to repeat it — but it ends up all over the internet.”
After the show, she linked up with fashion maven/Page Six TV co-host Bevy Smith. Fun times.
