Video vixen Maliah Michel recently opened up on her short-lived romance with Young Money star Drake and why despite the rumors, she is merely friends with reggae singer Sean Kingston.
Admitting she is currently a single woman, Michel said inaccurate gossip and dating rumors drive her crazy.
“Sean is really a cool guy! Actually the first time we ever hung out was for the AMA’s. He called me and asked me to be his date and I was like, “Wow, okay, cool.” I was really shocked and ever since then we’ve just been cool. He’s great. It really bothers me that all the blogs are like “Is he hitting that?” and it’s like “Gosh, can we get to know each other?” Seriously, are people really just jumping up and screwing without nothing? I really feel like I need to know the person that I’m dealing with and that takes time. [Could I see Sean Kingston being on top and sweating on me?] Ummm… a little. I really appreciate that he tries and goes out of his way for me. He’s not ashamed of me and I love that. So you never know.” (Elite DC Radio)
A few weeks ago, Kingston confirmed speculation suggesting he hooked up with the sultry vixen.
Pop singer Sean Kingston is confirming rumors that he’s dating Canadian rapper Drake’s ex-girlfriend. The rumors started on Sunday night after Kingston walked the rep carpet at the American Music Awards with Maliah, an urban magazine model. Shortly after their outing, Kingston was slammed by bloggers for dating Drake’s “sloppy seconds,” but Kingston had this response on Twitter: “Sloppy seconds? Not that at all … she is a great woman with a great heart that deserves the best in life.” Way to stay classy, Kingston. Maliah also retweeted her beau’s message to her followers confirming that they are indeed an item. (RumorFix)
In addition to getting name dropped by Drizzy in the past, Maliah was also featured in his “Find Your Love” 2010 music video.
“Someone tell Maliah I’m on fire she should work tonight, all her King of, Diamonds and tell China it’d be worth the flight, I’ll be at my table stacking, dollar’s to the perfect height, work something twirk something basis, she just tryna make it so she right here gettin naked, I don’t judge her, I don’t judge her, but I could never love her cause to her I’m just a rapper and soon she’ll have met another” Maliah Michel is Drake’s recent squeeze, she was also featured as the video vixen in Drake’s hit single “Find Your Love.” (Drizzy Drake)
In summer 2010, Maliah refused to officially confirm their romance.
“It was so funny because when we were shooting the beach scene [for ‘Find Your Love’], the director, Anthony Mandler, was like ‘Come on, come on! You got to make me feel this!’ And we had never kissed or anything before, so I just went for it and kissed him! And we started kissing for real and everybody just started cheering. [Are we dating now?] Um… Drake and I are good friends, and we like hanging out… having fun together. That’s all that anyone needs to know at this point.” (VIBE)
