R&B singer Olivia is gearing up for season two of her hit VH1 reality show Love & Hip Hop, set to premiere November 14th at 9pm. On the heels of the upcoming showing, photos of the “Take It Off” singer leaked online with her kissing rapper Maino, which led many fans to draw their own conclusions.
Well, Olivia wants to make it clear that this wasn’t a show promo or a new relationship, as she tells Chicago’s WGCI that the photos are “old.”
“Those are old memories […] girl I don’t even have those pictures, how about that? […] all I’m saying is my boyfriend is Tarence Kinsey, that’s all I’m saying. [We’ve] been together for about two or three months now,” Olivia says.
Olivia also says her new boyfriend, who plays basketball overseas, had no issues with the photo leak, because he also knew they were old.
“It’s a seven hour time difference so I said you know what, let me be the first person to hit him up when it came out,” she adds. “It was like 3am my time and I told him to make sure he called me when he got up before practice and he did and then I explained it to him and he knew it was old anyway because he was like ‘you don’t have that tat on your hand so I know its old’.”
A rep for Maino also told Singersroom the photos were old.
As far as the upcoming season of Love & Hip Hop, expect Olivia to open up more, especially about her past label situation with G-Unit.
“Just know that I took on something very big for me, that was a big issue for me head on, we did it on the show,” she says. “I don’t even want to say what type of person and give it away, just know there’s a lot of things going on, like things in my past that I was just like you know what? I need to say something, I need to address it because it has always bothered me when I was over at the unit and I’m just going to go for it.”
