Marques Houston Speaks After Being Accused Of Dating His Teen Fiance Before She Was 18
Seemingly out of nowhere, Marques Houston became a trending topic on Twitter for his relationship with his 19-year-old fiance. He took to Instagram to clear a few things up.
First and foremost, Miyana Houston is said to be the daughter of Chris Stokes -- manager of B2K among other acts. This opened up a conversation about how Raz B, member of B2K, tried to reveal that he was being molested by the music bigwig and Houston. However, that's a completely different story.
It turns out that Miya only calls Chris her father. The woman is believed to be a teen runaway who's mother reported her missing four years ago.
The internet, of course, had some question about how she ended up being raised by Stokes and more importantly when she started dating the Sister Sister star.
Judging by the timeline of their relationship leading up to their engagement, it would seem that they started dating two years ago when she was 17.
Marques took to Instagram with a lengthy statement that read: 'After reading the Blog that was published about my fiancé and I, I felt with this situation I needed to speak because this is not music or television, this is my family, my future wife and my life. I met Miya in 2018 through a mutual friend. Never before then, did I even know she existed. The fact that she was listed on one of our films was a misprint or someone being messy. Anyone can post on IMDB. And there’s no way someone that young could even work on a film set in the position of Art Directer because that position requires years of experience. Miya is like a daughter to Chris Stokes because we are all like family. Being a Jehovah’s Witness, we all showcase true love like family. That’s it. Chris’ real daughter, Chrissy Morales became friends with Miya in 2018, where we all first met Miya at a Jehovah’s Witness convention.'
He went on to explain: 'It was then that Chrissy and Miya became friends. Miya and I didn’t start dating until she was an adult. We fell in love and got engaged in March of 2019. My dad Michael loves her, and the people I am closest to all love her as well. Most importantly we have Jehovahs blessing 😁 There is so much more to be concerned about in the world, than creating rumors about me. No one ever gets facts anymore, they just run with “stories”, but hey, I guess it comes with the territory 🤷🏾♂️. So to all the rumors about me, none of it is true! And that’s the story. No twists, no turns, no scandals, just true love. There is nothing that can come to light, because there’s no darkness in my life. You wanted the truth. I don’t have anything to hide, so if you’re waiting for something else, you will be waiting for ever.'
He went on to insist that people should worry about other things such as staying safe during this global pandemic.
