Erica Mena has spoken out about her 2013 affair with DJ Envy, revealing that she was unaware he had a wife until she received a phone call from Gia Casey. The former Love & Hip Hop star reflected on the relationship during a new interview with Carlos King.
“That came out right when I got on Love and Hip Hop, and we had just broken up because the wife found out, which I was totally oblivious to. I knew about the kids, mind you; I have a kid, but I have a baby daddy, and it’s more common where we come from to have kids, but you’re not married; you just got a baby mama,” she told Carlos King. Mena added: “I knew about the kids, and it was always told to me [she was] his kid’s mother, never wife. And I didn’t get that realization until I got a phone call from the wife.”
