Teyana Taylor cleared her name quickly from the national attention grabbing saga with Ray Rice and his wife. She paid a visit to Power 99 in Philly and told her truth to Mina SayWhat. She wants everyone to know she had nothing to do with the elevator situation and she’s never even had a relationship with Ray.
I had nothing to do with that. These were also the same blogs that said that I accused Colin Kaepernik of raping me and when the actual girl came out and said who she was, there was no apology to Teyana. Nobody cleaned it up. So now I’m at a point where all I can do is laugh at it. People feel like they know your life and it’s so sad, because it’s our people. This is a big matter. ESPN hasn’t said my name. No sports blogs have said my name BUT a whole bunch of OUR people. Our people who want it to be true so bad but I can’t entertain those type of things.…
What I won’t downplay is me and Ray. We used to stay in the same building. He dated my best friend. I was on the phone with her and she was laughing like, ‘don’t even feed into that.’ I never touched that man. That’s my homie. I don’t condone what he did, and I don’t condone what his wife did. They need to work that out and figure it out, however, she shouldn’t have hit him and he shouldn’t hit her. I feel like there is a double standard because sometimes we don’t realize that a man is still a man but Ray shouldn’t have put his hands on her and she shouldn’t have put her hands on him. I’m in a full blown relationship [with Iman] so don’t drag me into that. I never touched that man. What y’all not going to say is that I was the reason why that happened in that elevator.
Well she’s spoken. With any luck, this should be enough to cease any further rumors attempting to implicate her. My only hope for Teyana is that her music career finally overshadows her drama. I really want to see her win.
