TMZ Reports Mehgan James Made Up the Rob Kardashian Dating Rumors, James Points Fingers at the Family That "Controls" the Media

The plot thickens.

Fame is the name of the game, bb. A new TMZ report suggests that former Basketball Wives' star Mehgan James, who according to People, US Weekly, and InTouch Weekly was dating sock impresario Rob Kardashian last week, made the whole rumored relationship up. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

On Friday (June 2), Rob K Tweeted that he had no idea who "Megan something" (shady) was, "Not true never even met her or heard of her before." Mehgan followed suit to say that she was not in fact dating the reality star and entrepreneur but did insinuate that the Kardashians are the one that "control" the media. She wrote, " I do not control the media, BUT we all know who has the media on their payroll."

Welp! A lot can happen over a weekend. The TMZ source alleges that the former Bad Girls Club starlet's team "contacted a bunch of media outlets planting the story" with the simple and very 2017 goal of "spread[ing] her name, [and] grow[ing] her following." According to TMZ, Mehg's Insta followers doubled in the week so she accomplished her goals unlike me, who did not wake up in time to go to the gym this morning.

So, was the romance ever a thing? Did the Kardashians make this to make a little noise? Or did Mehgan really just need to up her likes and followers?

Mehgan took to Instagram to rebut the TMZ story, writing:

Ok Look. This is getting ridiculous! And the fact that it's Monday and YALL are STILL talkin about this is beyond me . So since you guys wana talk, let's talk .

1) I did not fake anything . Like I said I never confirmed that I was dating rob. Any one that asked I told them it was not true. AND not to mention, the media is trying to make me look like the villain here when THEY are the ones who pieced together a story with no receipts. It takes two people to fake a relationship, any one who fakes a relationship by themselves is a complete idiot!!

2) I've been working in entertainment since I was 18 I've done a multitude of TV shows as well as a couple films. As well as have had over half a million social media followers over two years...OH wait, I have a college degree and Am a vendor for one of the MOST POPULAR clothing companies online right now so for FAME? Ya'll are REACHING!

3. During the duration of this rumor I asked a couple friends that I know in PR what to do & they told me the best thing to do is not say anything, don't entertain it and it will go away .

4. The fact that this is still being talked should raise question marks to any one who's smart . Like I said in a previous post, im just "Mehgan something" that most of you never even heard of !!! So how would I have the power to MAKE UP A BS STORY and get media outlets to RUN IT?? How sway ? We all know WHAT FAMILY HAS THE MEDIA ON THEIR PAY ROLL? and it's not mine .

Happy Monday tho .

Btw- @tmz , ya'lls story sounds dumb af, my followers have not "doubled" and I don't have a "team" that reached out to you. I don't have a manager and my publicist is on hiatus until September when my next show airs ?. PSS. lol - if i ever wanted to fake a relationship with a rich white guy it would be PRINCE HARRY!!!!!!!!! Not rob Kardashian!!! Psss. Have you guys ever have the slightest thought that THEY made up the story, isn't the family at odds with the mother of robs child ? come on y'all ??? Psssssss... when the rumor ran did y'all not notice ROB DELETED PICS OF HIS GIRLFRIEND or what ever they are !!!!!!! #staywoke
