"Love & Hip Hop" cast member Erica Mena is denying claims by rapper Prodigy that the two had a sexual encounter in a nightclub years ago.
She issued a statement dismissing the story Prodigy relayed in his book My Infamous Life regarding Mena, himself and his Mobb Deep bandmate Havoc.
"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 statement reads. "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."
