“I don’t know where all those rumors came from,” she said. “My mom actually called me and told me that everybody was saying that I was ‘saddened.’ And I was just in complete shock.”
She added: “You know, our relationship was over a really long time ago, so it would be nice if everybody could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa. I do, and I wish them nothing but the best.”
