V Exclusive - Erica Mena Denies Sexual Involvement With Mobb Deep
It seems like model Erica Mena's name has been in everyone's mouth since her controversial debut on Vh1's Love & Hip-Hop. In case you forgot, she scrapped with Kimbella during a luncheon gone wild. Following the episode, Kimbella has said her fair share of negative things about Mena but then in a random twist of fate, Mobb Deep's Prodigy got involved seemingly out of nowhere. Prodigy claims in his book, My Infamous Life, that he and Havoc tag teamed the aspiring singer. However, Mena says it's not true. Here's an official statement given to VIBE from Erica Mena about what she describes as "blatant defamation:"
To whom it may concern --
For the record: Erica Mena has never been sexually involved with either party of the group Mobb Deep. Not now. Not ever. All claims in Prodigy's book are completely false. She has only worked with them in the past.
If Prodigy is referring to the time that she met them while working, please let it be known that Erica was only 16 years old at the time.
The content in this book is blatant defamation of Ms. Mena's character and is nothing more than fabricated slander - in an awful way to gain financial profit.
Although, we wish him the best in the new year, the spread of these false and malicious claims - at the expense of Erica Mena's brand and reputation - will not be taken lightly. Erica and her team are currently pursuing legal action to make sure this matter is handled, and the truth is thoroughly publicized.
We hope this clears any gray area, doubt, or un-readiness.
Thanks for your time.
