Cousins! Sisqo is officially addressing dated rumors that he and Beyoncé were once an item back in the day!
In an interview a part of VladTV’s “The Gloria Velez” podcast, the Dru Hill member was asked about him and Bey’s 2001 MTV Movie Awards red carpet moment. Sisqo quickly declared that the two have never been anything other than friends and had never dated.
“Me and Beyoncé never dated, but we were just friends when we were younger because we were on a lot of the same tours because we came out around the same time. I believe they came out in ’97 and [Dru Hill] came out in ’96. So, we were friends. I knew her dad, and her mom, and sister and stuff.”
Though dating rumors between the two began to circulate in the early 2000s and eventually died out, the streets of social media began to chatter once again in 2014. Just one day after the infamous elevator fiasco, Solange shared a throwback photo of Beyoncé and Sisqo in a semi-crowded room on her Instagram with a caption that read, “This will be deleted tomorrow, and it’s not because I don’t love Sisqó’s awesome guitar.”
Sisqo says he personally don’t know the context behind Solange posting that specific photo. ““All I know is when elevatorgate happened, Solange posted a picture of us.”
“I’ll just leave it at that. Then she promptly erased it. It was erased the next day.”
