marlon-samuels.jpgMarlon Sameuls, the West Indies cricketer who appears in Ishawna's Instaboy video, is defending himself against allegations by Yanique 'curvy Diva' Barrett. Yanique, who is said to have been close to the cricketer, vented on social media over the weekend, alleging that she was being stalked and threatened to have her personal pictures shared online. Yanique said that she had reported it to the police.


Well, she did in fact call Samuels' name and he has since put out the following release:

"It has been brought to my attention that there are allegations in social media circles, that a female television personality who goes by the moniker Yanique Curvy Diva has made several derogatory posts on social media about me. I am therefore informing the public that I refute the allegations made by Miss Yanique Barrett and I intend to take the necessary steps legally to defend my reputation in due course.

"In my capacity as a sports ambassador, my job is to continue serving the people of Jamaica, the West Indies and by extension the cricketing world, and in addition the blind community by way of the Marlon Samuels Foundation for the Blind. In the circumstances, I am therefore requesting that the mentioned media personality and those associated directly or indirectly to her immediately cease and desist from embroiling my name in any controversy, (expressly or implied) surrounding this person. Failure to observe this request will result in legal action for an injunction against you to restrain you from further slandering and defaming my name and reputation."

We are awaiting Yanique's response.
