Rapper, reality star, and entrepreneur Rasheeda and her husband, Kirk Frost both recently responded to a fan who compared Kirk to embattled singer-songwriter R. Kelly. The fan insinuated that Kirk adopted Rasheeda when she was a teenager, groomed her as an artist, and then had relations with her while she was still a minor.

“For all the people who are minding my business,” Kirk said in a video.”These mathematicians and rocket scientists,” Rasheeda said in the background while laughing and sitting behind Kirk. “First of all, I ain’t [expletive] adopt Rasheeda,”

“I don’t even answer stupid [expletive]. I’m not interested in adopting Rasheeda. And I am definitely not interested in marrying somebody at 17,” Kirk said.”Yea, that’s crazy,” Rasheeda added in the background while Kirk was talking. “I damn sure wasn’t thinking about getting married at 17. I have a son who is 19,” Rasheeda continued.

“Grow up. I know y’all read an age on the internet and think you know,” Kirk said.  “Who’s to say that’s true though?” Rasheeda chimed in while looking at Kirk. “…And for the record, I’m not gone tell nobody’s age but trust me and I’m not going to say what I need to say but I’m not interested in marrying a minor. Never want to, so y’all got me [expletive] up!” Kirk asserted.

“People are really sitting here trying to add all of this up,” Rasheeda said. “But if you notice all of our friends who know us know that y’all are ignorant. That dumb [expletive] that y’all made up. That story that y’all are talking about that’s years old,” Kirk said.

“Kirk adopted Rasheeda when shorty was 15…started having relations with her as a legal parent…Married her at 17 while he was 30. They been together for 20 years. He has 7 kids, 2 are hers. Why nobody compare him to Robert Kelly?,” the tweeter tweeted.

“You ain’t told nobody [expletive] [with your] bootleg conspiracy theory ass,” Rasheeda responded to the tweeter. “Come [with] facts not assumptions if [you’re going to] try to blast somebody. Here’s some help I’ve never been adopted I didn’t know [expletive] about Kirk when I was 15 and [sure] wasn’t thinking about getting married at 17 so worry bot Dat Rona!”
