“Hi everyone, so I would like to address the situation,” said the Tweeter Lily. “Last night I made the stupid decision to tweet some information I had received. I’m not going to talk about sources, blame others for a discussion that has been started, etc. because at the end of the day, I made the decision to write this tweet, hit send, and post it with my name on it, so I would like to formally apologize to all parties involved in my actions and for my reckless tweets. I accept fully the consequences of my actions on my tweets and any harm they have caused.
The statement went on to say, “I have no excuse for this, I’ve been too engrossed in the Twitter drama and sadly, I’ve leaned into being messy as a brand, which I’m going to walk away from. in the future.”
“I will be stepping away from Twitter to understand what it is like and how I can start to use my platforms better as I have moved away from using them for more positive work,” the statement concluded. “Once again, I apologize to them for this unnecessary drama.”
On Friday, April 15, Muaddi also addressed the social media rumors to clear things up and call out the accusations of cheating. On Twitterthe designer shared a screenshot of her post, writing in part, “I’ve always felt that an unfounded lie spread on social media deserved no response or clarification, especially such a despicable lie.”
“I first assumed that this fake gossip – fabricated with such malicious intent – would not be taken seriously,” she wrote, before explaining why she felt compelled to speak out. on gossip. “However, in the last 24 hours I have been reminded that we live in a society that is so quick to talk about topics regardless of factual basis and that nothing is off limits. Not even during what should be l one of the most beautiful and celebrated moments of his life.
Muaddi cited his “respect and affection” for Rihanna, writing: “As Rih continues to live her serene, best-dressed pregnancy life and go about my business – I wish everyone a beautiful Easter weekend !”
Rihanna and Rocky are expecting their first child together. The news broke at the end of January when the couple were photographed in New York, while Rihanna showed off her baby bump in an unbuttoned pink jacket.
She recently opened up about her relationship with Rocky in her cover story for Vogue’s May issue, sharing how they started out as friends and nothing more.
“People don’t get out of the friend zone with me very easily,” she said. “And it’s certainly taken me a while to figure out how well I know him and how well he knows me, because we also know how much trouble we can get into each other.”
The couple grew closer when they began quarantining together at the start of the pandemic. She told the magazine, “He became my family in that time.”
