AceShowbiz - Tamera Mowry has broken her silence regarding the trolling she received from Beyhives, Beyonce Knowles' fans, after she recalled an old interaction she had with Jay-Z. "The Real" co-host admitted that she was "aloof" in the begining after being attacked online by the fandom.
"I think in the beginning, I was aloof," the 40-year-old TV personality said to Us Weekly at the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday, March 30, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. "I was like, 'What's going on?' "
"I try not to look at that stuff. If it’s negative, I don't like to make an agreement with it, and what I mean by that is making an agreement with my spirit, with my soul, because I'm a very positive person," the "Sister, Sister" alum added. "I'm a mom. I'm a wife. So, I'm focusing on that. Yeah, I was just [like], 'What the hell is going on?' "
"What's so funny is that I never thought it was going to be a big deal," Tamera who is now married to Adam Housley continued saying. "All I did was ask for gum and thought he was pretty cool. That's it."
The backlash arrived after Tamera shared on her show that she once met the "4:44" rapper before both of them were together with their current partners. "I actually met Jay-Z in person, and he wasn't with Beyonce at the time and I wasn't dating anybody and when I met him, you do get like hit with the charm. I found myself strangely asking for gum," Tamera said in the Wednesday, March 20 episode of "The Real".
"I swear, my sister and I were at a premiere of 'Nutty Professor' and he walked by and I was like, 'Oh my God, that's Jay-Z.' And I was like, 'Could I have some gum?' and he gave some gum," she continued.
Tamera, however, was pretty much calm despite the backlash. "If I see him tonight, I'll ask him for more gum," the former child star joked in the recent interview. "But I'll ask Beyonce for gum too. She's with him now!"
