Former Miss Michigan and USA Kenya Moore has stepped forward to address rumors and speculation which suggest she dated Jay-Z well before he married Beyoncé Knowles-Carter back in 2008.
Kenya hopped onto Twitter to clear the air to her 131,700 followers this week.
“Sorry… but NO I never dated Jay-Z. Only worked on the video. He and @jermainedupri were true gentlemen. #dumbRumors #twirlonthat,” Moore tweeted May 20th. (Kenya Moore’s Twitter)
Last week, Moore heated up the Internet after revealing a throwback photo of herself and Jigga.
The dated photograph, snapped on the set of Jay and Jermaine Dupri‘s music video for “Money Ain’t a Thang”, shows Beyonce’s husband sitting in a ride with Moore. The picture led many to believe that the two dated back in the day, especially since Moore decided to note that the image was taken “pre-Beyonce.” (Hip Hollywood)

The news comes just a few days after Hov reportedly denied his wife is pregnant with their second child.
“I e-mailed on some, ‘Congratulations, send my love to the family, blah, blah, blah,’ and he hit me back and said it’s not true. [I hit him] like literally, it had to be Saturday afternoon. So it had been a whole 24 hours of ‘It’s true.’ I figured, I didn’t want to hit them [right away], you know, I figured they were in good sprits. It was just announced there’s a new child. [His direct quote was] ‘It’s not true, news is worse than blogs.’ That’s what the e-mail account said. [laughs]” (Hot 97)
