It's been at least several weeks since news of Bow Wow and Omarion, so, here is the latest on "teh internets." One of the coeds on BET's "College Hill" releases a statement saying that she is not dating Bow Wow. When reporting the denial, EURweb.com, the major black lifestyle, news and entertainment portal, also addresses the speculation surrounding Bow Wow and his BFF. Or, maybe the BF.
"For months, the black blogosphere has been rife with talk that Bow Wow is gay and dating R&B singer Omarion. According to blogger Sandra Rose, someone in Bow Wow's camp denied the rumors and stated that Ashley R., a 21-year-old marketing major, is Bow Wow's girlfriend.
Not so, says Ashley."
The reality tv "star" says that she and the brown-eyed rapper-actor and Flaunt model "went out a few times as friends several years ago, but it was nothing more than that."
As far as Sandra Rose's reliability is concerned, well, let's not go there. In January, she did link to our story of the Omarion interview in Vibe (PDF) where he said he liked "wearing tight jeans to show off [his] figure, but, the quote was incorrectly attributed to an alleged BET interview. (All this publicity for BET, maybe she's a publicist?) The gossip blogger also wrote "gay chat rooms lit up like Christmas trees" at the site of Omarion's tight pants, and, posted a comment from one of our regular readers. Not cool. With this tabloid track record, it's quite possible Bow Wow's camp never said the lil rapper was "dating" the reality star.
