Lira “Galore” Mercer Opens Up On Rick Ross Breakup

So what really happened with Rick and Lira? After a messy break-up and a triumphant reconciliation, the vixen quietly exited Rick Ross’ SnapChat life for good shortly before the holidays — only to re-emerge throwing shots at a Morgan State student rumored to be Ricky’s new Black Bottle girl.

Well now, Lira is confirming that she and Renzell are officcially over, and explained what caused the demise of their engagement. She opened up on how she and Rick met, and says that their happiness made onlookers on social media angry…

Via Global Grind:

“I met Ross on the set of the “Thug Cry” video with Lil Wayne, but we didn’t start talking until later, because on set it was just a work vibe. We met again All-Star Weekend and he grabbed me like, ‘yo, I’ve been looking for you.’ We exchanged numbers and the rest is history.”

“This was my first time in a public relationship, so I was happy about putting it out there. But people on social media don’t like to see that type of stuff, so they dug up old stuff that didn’t matter.”

And by “old stuff,” she means…


Lira says the photo never bothered her, since she knew the truth of what did and did not happen the night it was taken. But the constant social media roast was a bit much for her fiance to handle…

“I’m not worried about the picture with Meek. It was just a picture that I posted on my Instagram. I was at work, I used to dance and it was just a picture,” she said.

“I think the initial breakup was a combination of everything from people digging up tweets when I was 17-years-old tweeting about different people, to the picture of Meek. I went to his (Ross’) tagged photos one day and it was only that picture of Meek, and it was just that photo. Everybody just kept posting it and I felt like as a man, he just couldn’t handle it when it was just nothing. I feel like during that time apart he realized he was tripping, so we got back together.”

“[Ultimately] We just decided to go our separate ways. I’m 22 and this was my first time in love and I put it out there. I’m still in love with him, but some things don’t go as you would like them to go.”

Damm homie. Sounds like Ricky couldn’t handle the heat that comes with claiming an industry hot girl!

Hit the flip to see what rapper Lira has her sights — and tweets — set on now that she’s back in these streets…


Lira looks are right up any rapper’s alley. So who’s next in line to have the Instagram sensation on his arm? Lira says there’s no one new for her at the moment…and as far as dating another rapper goes, she’s not interested:

“I’m fresh out of a breakup, so I’m not looking or worried about anybody right now.

[When dating a rapper] You have to be prepared for that lifestyle and everything that comes with it, you have to be strong and not care about things, but care at the same time, and it becomes too much. I don’t think I can deal with that.”

Hmmm. She says that now, but when one of these rappers goes down in her DMs or makes that hotline bling, we’ll see if she sings a different tune
