A blogger who is broke and facing lawsuits spread a malicious rumor about author and homemaker Karrine Steffans.
The blogger, who shall not be named, said singer Mary J Blige found out about an illicit affair between her soon-to-be ex-husband Kendu Isaacs and Karrine.
The rumormonger wrote that Mary gave Karrine the cold shoulder when she saw Karrine out at an industry function.
He said Karrine tried to approach Mary but Mary let Karrine know she knew exactly who she was and then she simply walked away.
Karrine addressed the false rumor in a classy manner on Instagram.com.
@karrineandco here I am, at Trader Joe’s, buying organic fruits and vegetables for my family, when I get a slew of interview requests because of yet another false accusation. The truth is that most of what urban blogs post about me is 100% made up. These false reports add to the disparaging views people have of me and usually, I’m content to let people think what they want. Today, however, is not one of those days. I live a simple life. I’m not out and about. I’m never at the party. There are no photos of videos circulating of me doing much of anything and that’s because I don’t do much. I stay home, I take care of my family, and I run my businesses quietly. My life is drama free. I am happy, healthy, and whole. But, I guess that’s what irritates people the most. I don’t know why I’m a target. I don’t know why people pick on me. I’m not sure why people aren’t content to just leave me alone. I try my best to be a positive force, to share my experiences in an attempt to help those going through much of what I have experienced. I’ve built a brand that is dedicated to help and education. I volunteer my time. I lecture at universities around the country, sometimes for free. I give and I give and when I’m tired, I give some more. What have I done that’s so bad that I have to be continuously demeaned and undermined? I pay my taxes. I don’t do drugs. I’m not out here getting arrested or fighting with anyone. Even in my pain, I do my very best to be a light. These blogs don’t cover any of that though. Of course not. They’d rather make you think I’m a horrible person. They’d rather try to break me and hurt my family. And this is why I stay to myself. No, I have never had an inappropriate relationship with Kendu Isaacs. No, he has never cheated on his wife with me. Yes, we are friends and have been for 10 years. Naturally, when his friends heard about his marital troubles, we all rallied around him to show support. Divorce is painful. I’ve been through three marriages and I understand the gut wrenching agony the end of a marriage causes. I sincerely wish Kendu and Ms. Blige peace and love, no matter the outcome, and I would appreciate not being dragged into the gossip. Thanks.
