Marques Houston, 38, came under fire on social media earlier this week after fans discovered the 20-year age gap between him and his fiancée, but he wants people to chill out. The entertainer took to Instagram to defend his 2-year long relationship with Miya Dickey, who is presumed to be merely 19-years-old.
According to Instagram posts like the one below from Marques, he and Miya have been going strong for 2 whole years.
Doing the math, that would place the girl at 17 when they first started to date, but Marques Houston doesn’t want anyone to fret any further.
He assures people who are concerned that his boo was legal when they “officially” hooked up after meeting at a Jehovah’s witness convention.
Hit the flip to see what he has to say in his defense!
Marques wants people to focus on being healthy and not meddling into his legal courtship.
“With all that’s going on in the world, my love life shouldn’t be a topic. But since it is let me just give y’all the facts so you don’t have to “allegedly” believe or create rumors.
After reading the Blog that was published about my fiancé and I, I felt with this situation I needed to speak because this is not music or television, this is my family, my future wife and my life. I met Miya in 2018 through a mutual friend. Never before then, did I even know she existed.
The fact that she was listed on one of our films was a misprint or someone being messy. Anyone can post on IMDB. And there’s no way someone that young could even work on a film set in the position of Art Directer because that position requires years of experience.
Miya is like a daughter to Chris Stokes because we are all like family. Being a Jehovah’s Witness, we all showcase true love like family. That’s it. Chris’ real daughter, Chrissy Morales became friends with Miya in 2018, where we all first met Miya at a Jehovah’s Witness convention.
It was then that Chrissy and Miya became friends. Miya and I didn’t start dating until she was an adult. We fell in love and got engaged in March of 2019. My dad Michael loves her, and the people I am closest to all love her as well. Most importantly we have Jehovahs blessing.
There is so much more to be concerned about in the world, than creating rumors about me. No one ever gets facts anymore, they just run with “stories”, but hey, I guess it comes with the territory 🤷🏾♂️. So to all the rumors about me, none of it is true! And that’s the story.
No twists, no turns, no scandals, just true love.
There is nothing that can come to light, because there’s no darkness in my life. You wanted the truth.
I don’t have anything to hide, so if you’re waiting for something else, you will be waiting for ever. Please people focus on staying safe through this pandemic.
And continue fighting for what you believe in, as long as it is true justice, and the fight is with love, not hate, because we all matter to God 🙏🏾 and I put God first in all things. I love all who support me and thank you. I won’t let you down. I love y’all! Peace and Love, MH.
Although they’re not officially married, Miya has changed her name to “Miya Houston” online.
Before meeting her hubby-to-be, Miya was listed as a missing person in 2016 by a national missing person’s directory. It was assumed she fled to live with her birth mother after being adopted. On the missing report, her age then was listed as 15-years-old.
Do you think Marques explained everything enough for people to not be perturbed by his relationship age-gap moving forward?
