EBONY.com: You recently got caught up in a nasty rumor with Kobe Bryant, that you were somehow the reason for his marriage ending after you two were seen in the same VIP section at Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne concert. I have to say I absolutely loved your response to the rumor on Twitter. [Sanaa tweeted: “Anybody who pays attention knows I’m not his type… Blank stare. #blackgirlsrock #dontbelievethelies”]
Sanaa: I probably shouldn’t have said that because I don’t discriminate when it comes to dating. I have dated all races and I believe you should be free to do whatever you want. But I was so annoyed because I was having such a great time at the concert and Kobe happen to be standing next to me, and then all of a sudden I was tied to his break-up. That’s absurd, and I tweeted that in the moment, and I regret it. But to each its own. It’s just funny that if it’s written people believe it, and even though I have said I have nothing to do with him, people are still saying when the baby is due?
They also asked her about the sequel to Best Man and she said nothing has been confirmed.
EBONY.com: There seems to be a Best Man 2 in the works, can you tell us more about that?
Sanaa: Nothing has been confirmed yet regarding Best Man 2, but it is a great script that we have all read. It’s all on the studio and them deciding to do it. I know a lot of people are excited and anticipating the movie, but we all just have to cross our fingers and hopefully it will all come together. Everyone in the cast is excited and on board, and I think people will be really pleasantly entertained to see where these characters have evolved over the twelve years.
We’re kind of divided over whether or not this sequel should be made. Sometimes you just shouldn’t mess with a good thing.
As for the Kobe comment, she must read Bossip because that’s exactly what we said. We called pot/kettle on her from the gate cuz we know Sanaa is equal opportunity when it comes to the mens!
