Ja Rule took to Twitter to address rumors that he was gay and left his wife for a man in prison.
The reports started after gossip blog, Cream Bmp blog quoted his wife, Aisha Atkins as having told MTV that he was gay and was planning to leave her for a cellmate in prison.
"He wrote all them love songs and still don't know how to treat a b***h," she was quoted as saying, which apparently started the rumor. "We spent ten-plus years building our marriage but it only took him two to decide he'd rather suck a d*** than be with his wife... He returned home alright - to get his s*** and leave."
The rapper, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins denied the rumors via Twitter.
"Ok I guess I have to address the idiots these rumors are FALSE LIES made up by some non mf factor website CLOWNS lmao...," he posted last Tuesday.
The next day, he posted photo with his wife, with the caption, "Sorry to disappoint all the haters who want the rumors to be true so bad lol.Merry Xmas stupid love Mick&Mal.Lmao."
Ja Rule has previously admitted he was not always the best husband to Aisha, whom he married in 2001.
"I think we as a married couple go through what any other married couple goes through, it's just magnified that much more because everything I do is in the media, in the spotlight," he told Hip Hollywood back in October. "I'm also a target for fallacious women that, you know, want to not see me and my wife happy. You know? ... She knows me, she knows my heart, she knows I love her. We go through things like any other married couple, but I think at the end of the day, our love and our bond is stronger than any rumors of infidelity."
