A popular gossip blog site has ran a story suggesting that Atlanta stylist JoJo is dating rapper Young Thug. In an effort to keep her name out of controversy she has recently released a statement on the rumor as well as rumors of her dating other rappers.
“The feeling you get when your family calls you with news that they saw a story on gossip blogs about me being an “industry jump off” is heart breaking. At this point in my career I do understand people will make assumptions but no means will I let it slide. For the past few years I have styled from some pretty big name artists; yet today my whole career was jeopardized by a gossip blogs linking me to Young Thug as something other than stylist to the stars. I am sure that a lot of people don’t understand the relationship between a stylist and their client, but I want to set it straight.”
“My roster consists of Birdman, Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan and several other known models and artists; and I love my career and daily I grow. I worked hard to build my brand and I won’t let a blog posting defame who I am. Young Thug is a client of mines that has become a close homie, nothing more nothing less. Some of the music industry artists and execs are truly my friends, we hang out and if you see me in the club I might be with one of my clients. I have a great relationship with all my clients (male or female), so before you start calling me all types of names, make sure you know I am JoJo The Stylist. As a business woman there is an approach that must be taken early on and I want those who have attacked my character to understand slander is illegal and can negatively impact my business. And in a climate where we are trying to put an end to cyber bullying and the NO RIP (reckless internet posting) campaign which I fully support, we must also hold media outlet accountable when they use derogatory and false allegations which brings about the same negative impact.”
Well said Miss JoJo! Why is it that every person you’re photographed with you HAVE to be romantically involved with?
