Female rapper Trina is shutting the gossip mills down on allegations that she is dating rookie NFL player Dez Bryant.
The rumors, which began after a picture of the two surfaced at a club, come on the tail of her breakup with NBA player Kenyon Martin.
In a statement released today, the miami rapper puts the picture, and her alleged relationship into perspective:
“The allegations of such relationship with NFL play, Dez Bryant, holds no truth in any way. I met Mr. Bryant at Club Flow after performing for my fans and supporters. As a form of admiration and respect, I agreed to take a picture with him. Although, he seems like a wonderful individual upon our first introduction of one another this night, I just want to confirm that ‘Trina and Dez Bryant’ are not dating in any way.”
“At this time, I ask that you respect my personal life to remain private, and concentrate on the music that I continue to create for my fans.”
“Thank you again for your understanding and support.”
Dez Bryant’s PR also released a statement denying any relationship with Trina:
“There is no truth to the rumors that Dez Bryant is dating rapper Trina, Dez is very much in love with long-time partner, Ilyne Nash, with whom he is looking forward to building a home.”
Bryant and his partner recently celebrated the addition of a son named Dez Bryant Jr. on June 25th.
