dj-envy-erica-menaNYC’s Power 105.1 DJ Envy has admitted that he had an affair with Love & Hip-Hop star Erica Mena. Erica tried to put him on blast last week, saying that she would write about their affair in her upcoming book. Envy said on air, “A couple of months ago, I called my wife on air and asked her for forgiveness. I told her I needed to 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 why he cheated, he said, “Sometimes being married, it makes you insecure dude. I looked like I had everything. It was scary; my wife is gorgeous. She might need somebody that’s smarter than me. It made me insecure. With being insecure, with me being weak. . . . I started messing with somebody that was beneath me. A bird. Evil. A liar. Somebody that was desperate and its just so pathetic. I didn’t have to make her feel special, because she wasn’t. So that’s what it was.”

  • On his current relationship with his wife of 11 years, he said, “With the help of God, this situation has made my family tighter. Like tighter. 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. 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.'”


Erica responded to VIBE Vixen, saying, “DJ Envy’s definitely talking about me, but I’m one of many. I was under the assumption that he had kids but wasn’t actually married. I found out around the time that I started filming ‘Love & Hip Hop’. After I found out, I was still in shock because we were together for so long. I didn’t understand how he could take a vow as serious as marriage and take on a whole other relationship.”

She continued, “It’s sad that now he’s taking all these shots saying I’m a liar and I’m pathetic, when he deceived me. It’s not fair to paint me out as a liar when he was leading a double life for many years. He’s never publicly come out with his wife until now because he’s ashamed of her. It’s no secret.”

  • She continued, “For me, I never spoke about it [the affair] because it was embarrassing as a woman. Of course, now I explain it in my book. I want to be clear: My book is not a tell-all. It’s just a book about my life and Envy is apart of my life.”
  • She tweeted, “No ‘insecure’ man lies to many women about being married so he can have his cake and eat it too! I’m sorry but that’s a lame excuse Gia! Smh. I would never set out to ruin anyone’s family or marriage. Had I known I would have never. I’m only ow just clearing the air with TheTRUTH.”

Lauryn Hill has subliminally responded to Wyclef Jean‘s autobiography Purpose. As previously reported, Wyclef wrote about having an affair with Lauryn — and claimed that she lied to him about being the father of her first child Zion. He also wrote that he believes that Lauryn may be bi-polar. During a show on her Life Is Good/Black Rage tour with Nas, Lauryn broke down the situation.

She said, “Be careful how you judge, there is a lot of deception out there. A lot of misunderstanding out there. A lot of miscommunication out there. A lot of false information out there. And notice, out of all the people who talk talk talk, who’s the silent one. There’s a lot of chat, but me…. And you know why? Let me tell you why I don’t chat back. Because I know that my brothers and my sisters are often times pawns in a bigger scheme so when they, under pressure, attack me, I love them still. It’s called the high road. Try taking it sometimes.”

  • She continued, “I’m not going to play my hand like the suppressive system would have me play my hand. The truth always surfaces and especially, all you black folks out there who have had black mothers who carried you through thick and thin, when the system wanted to call them crazy, just remember that…”
  • Lauryn added, “You know I know I’m not crazy, that’s why I can use the word so freely. Crazy like a fox? Ahead of the curve. People don’t like people that’s ahead of the curve but unfortunately that’s not my problem.”

In his new autobiography Purpose, Wyclef Jean opens up about his affair with group member Lauryn Hill. He also opens up about the lie she told that ultimately destroyed their relationship.

Married at the time, Wyclef confirms in the tell-all that he cheated on his wife with Lauryn Hill.  When L Boogie got pregnant she led Wyclef to believe that the baby was his instead of Rohan Marley.

He wrote:

In that moment something died between us. I was married and Lauryn and I were having an affair, but she led me to believe that the baby was mine, and I couldn’t forgive that.”

He further explains that this is the reason the group could no longer work together.

He wrote

She could no longer be my muse… Our love spell was broken.

It would be nice to see the two reconcile, so that we could have a  Fugees reunion sometime in the near future.
