Marques Houston Defends His Engagement To 19-Year-Old Fiancé Miya
Singer Marques Houston said he doesn't "have anything to hide" when it comes to his engagement to his 19-year-old fiancée Miya.
Their relationship became a controversy this week when people on Twitter began to question whether he actually started dating Miya when she was of legal age.One person tweeted,“Can someone please explain why Marques Houston, a 38-year-old geezer, is engaged to a 19-year-old girl who he allegedly knew before she was 18?”
However,Marques said on Instagram that he was introduced to Miya in 2018, by his manager's daughter and they remained friends until she turned 18 in September. He said,"We fell in love and got engaged in March of 2019.”
Marques also said,“And that's the story. No twists, no turns, no scandals, just true love. There is nothing that can come to light, because there's no darkness in my life. You wanted the truth. I don't have anything to hide, so if you're waiting for something else, you will be waiting for ever.”
He also revealed that he's only addressing the controversy because he felt he"needed to speak because this is not music or television, this is my family, my future wife and my life. With all that's going on in the world, my love life shouldn't be a topic. But since it is let me just give y'all the facts so you don't have to 'allegedly' believe or create rumors.”
Miya and Marques have yet to tie the knot. It's been over a year since they announced their engagement.
