Instagram was buzzing on May 9 when an intimate video of Teiarra Mari and another man leaked on her profile. The “Love and Hip Hop” star is understandably upset and will be doing everything in her power to catch the perpetrator.
After finding her name trending on Twitter, Teiarra Mari released a statement about the embarrassing debacle.
“Recently, my social media was compromised by someone who I felt was deserving of my love and trust,” she wrote on Twitter. “I recognize the need to be more cautious and discerning. My hope is for women to remain strong and dignified when they find themselves having to address hateful and juvenile acts by former lovers who find it difficult to act in an adult manner,” the reality star said.
Teiarra added that she’s not taking this matter lightly: “Revenge Porn is a crime in California and I will be in pursuit of justice.”
This would be a horrible situation for anyone, but it’s especially disheartening for Mari who is still working on her sobriety. The 30-year-old completely rehab treatment around two years ago and was trying to find love again after being heartbroken by Cisco Rosado.
The man that appeared on the tape is Akbar Abdul-Ahad who took to his Instagram story to say that he had nothing to do with the video of his ex leaking.
A source gives an update on how Teiarra is reacting to the situation.
The insider spilled: “She shouldn’t feel ashamed, but she does. It’s such a violating feeling. Lots of people are supporting her and telling her to stay strong and that it’s not her fault but there are way more people taking this chance to attack her and kick her while she’s down. The worst part is that there are people, even people she thought were so-called friends, that are questioning whether she was somehow part of this and did it all for attention. That hurts so bad because she would never, ever do that. Having people think that is like being doubly betrayed.”
We hope that Teiarra is able to stay strong in this troubling time.
