AceShowbiz - People are bringing up Raz-B's molestation allegations against Marques Houston following the revelation about the background of Marques' fiancee Miya. Miya, who is reportedly on the list of missing teenagers, is 19 years old now, meaning that she might be 17 or 18 years old when the couple started dating.
In 2010, the B2K founding member said that Marques and manager-producer Chris Stokes, whom Miya called "Dad," allegedly molested him during his young musical career. Marques, however, denied the allegations at the time and said the false accusations had caused him "emotional distress."
Later in 2019, Raz-B quit B2K's "Millennium Reunion" tour because Chris was "around." He announced on Instagram, "I don't feel safe because I feel like Chris Stokes is around. So guess what? I'm off the tour. Good luck to everybody. No disrespect to Omarion because he's my brother. If you want to come talk to me and you want me to do the tour, I'll do the tour, but I'm officially off the tour."
Now people are wondering why Raz-B's allegations against Marques were not taken seriously, while many others are questioning the singer/actor's relationship with his fiancee. "Raz-B warned y'all. He said Marques moIested him & y'all laughed at him," one Twitter user wrote. "It's 'male victims should speak up' but when they do y'all clown them or don't believe them like y'all do women."
"I wish people took Raz-B's allegations more seriously. Y'all just laughed at him. Something is up with Chris Stokes AND Marques Houston," another similarly wrote. A third added, "Smh but you read the rest of this thread tho?? Raz-B was speaking truth and everyone made it seem like he was crazy but he was NOT lol MH molested him bruh."
Someone who is disgusted at Marques' relationship with Miya wrote, "Can someone please explain why Marques Houston, a 38-year-old geezer, is engaged to a 19-year-old girl who he allegedly knew before she was 18? They announced they were in a relationship 11 days after she turned 18 last October, and now comments on the profile's insta are limited."
"Her pretend father is Chis Stokes. She calls him her dad," another wrote of Miya. "That's already shady considering Raz-B said Marques Houston AND Chris Stokes molested him."
The hate against Marques sparked after it was reported that his fiancee Miya, who once said her real name is Miyana Juanita Houston, matches the name and image of a girl on the National Database for Missing Teenagers. According to the database, a teenage girl named "Miyana Juanita Pinkney" had been declared missing in Oregon since 2016, when she was just 15 years old. Her parents posted pics of her on the website under "missing teen," believing that she fled their home in Oregon to California.
After her supposed background surfaced online, Miya seemingly responded to the news with a cryptic statement on her Instagram page. "Let people judge you," she wrote on Sunday, June 14, without directly addressing the issue. "Let them misunderstand you. Let them gossip about you. What they think of you isn't your problem. Their opinions do not pay your bills."
She continued, "So you stay kind, committed to love, and free in your authenticity, and no matter what they do or say... never doubt your worth of the beauty of your truth. You keep on shining and let the haters hate."
Marques, meanwhile, remains mum on the issue.
