Video vixen Melyssa Ford has come clean and addressed a past dating rumor which involved her and Wu-Tang Clan‘s Raekwon.
According to Ford, gossip sites claimed she was spotted with “The Chef” at a photoshoot.
“It’s ridiculous. I’ve read about people that I’ve been with that I have never even met before. One great story was about me and Raekwon,” she explained in an interview. “He supposedly came to a photo shoot that I was doing and we had eyes for each other. We left in his drop top Phantom and were ‘canoodling’ all over LA…First of all, I don’t ‘canoodle.’ Secondly, I had never met Raekwon in my life to that point. And third, that photo shoot did exist but he wasn’t there. I drove myself there and back home. I was nowhere near anyone’s drop top Phantom. I don’t think I’ve even been in one.” (KING)
Around December 2008, rumors circulated of Rae and Ford being an item.
Bossip has exclusively learned that Melyssa Ford & Raekwon “The Chef”, have been seen around town as a couple. They were recently spotted creeping at Melyssa’s “Persona of a Crook” photo shoot where Raekwon came to the set to watch Melyssa’s every move. Melyssa will also be starring as the lead chick in his new video for the first single to drop off of “Only Built For Cuban Links 2?. Our spies tell us that they pulled off in Raekwon’s custom convertible Rolls Royce right after the shoot to go “hook up.” (Bossip)
Speculation on Ford dating 50 Cent emerged last month after she was caught tweeting to the rapper.
“@50Cent lol I’m hiding in plain sight…. move them mountains, Mr Jackson,” Ford tweeted on September 6th. (Melyssa Forda’s Twitter)
However, she later denied the dating rumors.
“I was home by myself one day, exhausted. I needed a break so I was catching up on movies like The Hangover. My favorite scene is where the wedding singer [sings], “I’ll take you to the candy shop.” [Laughs]. I tweeted something like, “When I get married, I have to hire the wedding singer from The Hangover. His cover of @50cent is priceless.” Then I went down to the gym came back, checked my Twitter page and I gained 400 followers. I was like, “What the f*ck?” [Laughs] Then I start looking at the replies, and I saw that somebody RT’d something that 50 had said to me. He was like, “Hey babe, @MelyssaFord. How you been? Long time, no see,” or something like that. [Laughs] People don’t know that I’ve known 50 since 2004. Off of one response, I got 400 followers! So I did a little flirt back and forth. It was no more than, like, six exchanges. In two days, my followers went up by 5,000. Two days later we’re on the blogs. Worst things could be said because he’s easy on the eyes. Will power [keeps our relationship platonic] [Laughs]. I think [dating 50] would be a lot of unnecessary pressure that I don’t know if I’d be willing to deal with. Maybe [if we weren’t in the industry], yeah. It’s very easy for a woman to fall in love with him and it happens all the time. Because of his money? Yeah. Fine, but the reality of the situation is 50’s so charming that he can get and keep just about any woman he wanted. It’s just the truth.” (VIBE)
