The plot thickens!
Just hours after Now magazine had their so called ‘legal expert’ look at emails MC Harvey claims were sent to him by X Factor judge Cheryl Cole, the rapper has suggested that he may have been lying about the whole thing.
Yesterday Now’s media lawyer claimed that the messages were 100% authentic and suggested a romantic relationship between Chez and Harvey, however during an interview on Choice FM’s breakfast show, Alesha Dixon’s ex husband appeared to backtrack a little on his claims.
Perhaps scared by reports that Cole was taking legal action against both him and Now magazine, when asked about his so called romance with the ‘Promise This’ hitmaker, Harvey said:
‘I will 100% say that we did have a communication relationship, but have I been out with her? No I have not.’
Articles in Now quoted the So Solid Crew star as saying that he wanted to marry Cheryl at one point and that he dated her, while she was supposedly seeing American star Derek Hough. However when asked to clarify his comments, Harvey added:
‘I did not say I would marry her. I’ve never been with her, I’ve never claimed to have a relationship with her, but the communication is not a lie.
‘If I’d done that, I’d be lying to myself and lying to my family. If I’m saying was there communication with us, yes- for a good five months.’
So then why did he hit out at Cole, when she publicly challenged him on twitter and accused him of lying about their his troy. Blatantly he has just admitted that he was. Well MC Harvey is sticking to his guns and says that he felt he had to defend himself against Cole and her team, as they backed him into ‘a corner.’
‘When she publicly went and done that, she brought it to the forefront as a battle, and me personally, that’s your fault because I didn’t wanna go on a public social network and give people what they want and entertain it but naturally as a person, when you done that, you put me in a corner.
So it looks as though Cheryl may have been telling the truth all along and perhaps, after his admissions Now will find themselves having to back down a little, especially after they issues a statement, standing by every detail of their so called revelations.
Yesterday Cheryl addressed the issue again on Twitter, saying that she was ‘shocked’ by the lies that some people tell in the industry.
It looks like she might have been right!
