After a week of speculation surrounding his marriage and infidelity, DJ Envy has addressed rumors involved him and Love & Hip Hop (NY) reality star, Erica Mena. Last week, news hit that Erica Mena had allegedly had an affair with Envy (real name RaaShaun Casey) who is married. According to Erica, the two had a relationship and she was unaware that he was married. In fact, in a recent interview, the budding singer shared that she will reveal the details of her relationship with The Breakfast Club radio personality in her new book, ‘Underneath It All’. So what’s the real truth? Well, we’re clueless ’round these parts, but Envy has spoken out, explaining his version of what happened. On Monday, he used his radio show to set the record straight. Peep a few excerpts of his statement:
A couple of months ago, I called my wife on air and asked her for forgiveness. I told her I needed change. I had a close relationship with God and I changed. Now, my wife, has been with me over 18 years. We’ve been married 11 years. The best heart that you’ll ever know. She’s that type of person that’ll change your life.
On maintaining his marriage and what motivated him to cheat:
It’s a difficult thing to do. Sometimes being married it makes you insecure dude. I looked like I had everything. It was scary, my wife is gorgeous. She might me somebody that’s smarter than me. It made me insecure.
On how he describes Erica Mena, the person that he cheated on his wife with:
With being insecure, with me being weak. I was so insecure and so down..I started messing with somebody that was beneath me. A bird. Evil. A liar. Somebody that was desperate and its just so pathetic. I mean I didn’t hafta feed this person no feed. I didn’t hafta make her feel special, because she wasn’t. So that’s what it was.
On his current relationship status with his wife:
With the help of God, this situation has made my family tighter. Like tighter. I’m honest. I had to be honest with myself. And the hardest thing I had to do was tell my wife EVERYTHING. When I say everything. She looked at me so different. To look at my family. So you guys follow me on twitter. We’re good. We’re not great. I don’t know what happens from here. Now if we remain together, as a relationship, we’ll see. But as a family, nobody’s stopping us. I just want to tell you ‘I love you. And we’ll see what God has in store for us.’
Although Envy never said Erica Mena’s name, most of us assume that he’s referring to the reality star. Stay tuned, as I’m sure Erica will have a response. P.S. What are your thoughts on Envy’s radio confession? Admirable for being honest or are you still disgusted at the fact that he cheated on his wife? P.S.S. Envy’s wife, Gia, is allegedly going to be on the next season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey…I wonder if this story line’ll play out on TV.
