Claudia Jordan Denies Claims She Or Any Of Her Friends Have Anything To Do With Gary Owen’s Divorce

Claudia Jordan wants no parts in Gary Owen’s split with his estranged wife Kenya Duke. As previously reported, Kenya Duke alluded to one of Claudia Jordan’s friends being a reason she filed for divorce from the comedian after 18 years of marriage.

She addressed a post to a woman she referred to as “Dallas, TX” and wrote, according to The Shade Room,

“I have all your info. I am going to deal with you in a minute, I am a little busy now. You can have him but you can’t disrespect me and my kids in the process.”

She then told Gary Owen,

“Let her know a storm is coming.”

She added more details in the caption and continued,

“Tried to be quiet out of respect for my kids but @claudiajordan has me on one this morning. 23 years together Gary didn’t have s*** but a raggedy pick up and good credit, no place to live.” 

While she made it clear her post wasn’t directed at Claudia Jordan, she said it was one of her friends as she included the hashtags:

#whitewomenarenotinvolved#notclaudia#claudiasfriend#draggingmebackto98th/MacArthur street mindset…” 

Claudia Jordan has since responded, alleging that she nor her friends are involved in the drama, and that Kenya Duke’s post was “extremely messy.”

She added she and Gary Owen have been friends for about 20 years.

“The fact that I’m being dragged into this is stupid. And it’s not true. I’ve reached out to friends of Kenya so we can talk woman to woman and not play this out in front of everybody…But I always want to keep it 100 with my people and tell the facts.”

She said she heard of the divorce and next thing she knew she was getting alerts because her name was thrown into the mix.

“Y’all love doing that to me. I’ve never been a mistress in my life. But that’s a narrative that’s easy to put on someone like me. So let me say for the 100th thousandth time, no. Nor do I approve of that. I guess the story is that I somehow – that he cheated and the woman is my friend. First of all, in my 20 years of knowing him, not one of my friends has ever told me or has ever implied that they messed with this man. Never.”

She added that if she has a friend who does “sheisty stuff” she’ll address it.

“I don’t approve of it. I’m not cool with it. If y’all wanna make me into this monster, that’s on y’all. But, I’m a one man woman, and I don’t condone that.”

She said she connected Kenya Duke to her hairdresser and actually was a fan of her and Gary Owen together. She told fans,

“You should probably talk to them about the reason for their divorce. And also know as adults, sometimes people break up y’all. And it’s not as scandalous as you want it to be… Why don’t you just let it play out? Or let it not play out, it’s none of our business.”

She reiterated,

“I have absolutely nothing to do with it. I do not have a friend in Dallas or anywhere else that is this man’s mistress. I don’t know anyone woman that’s his mistress. I don’t know what y’all are talking about.”

She went on to say a mutual friend gave Kenya Duke Claudia Jordan’s number so they could talk things over privately, adding,

“I’m really aggravated with you that you chose to go messy on a blog, when you could’ve reached out to me.”

She concluded by pointing out that all of her friends are taken anyway.
