Oo, it looks like it’s creep week in Hollywood (well, to be fair, that’s basically every week in the biz)! This time it’s 38-year-old Marques Houston, an R&B singer best known as Roger from Sister, Sister. He’s being criticized for his engagement to 19-year-old Miya Dickey. Poor Chris D’Elia and Ansel Elgort must be relieved to have some company.
People on social media suggested Miya was a teen runaway, and the couple began dating when she was a minor. Marques took to Instagram to defend himself, claiming “With all that’s going on in the world, my love life shouldn’t be a topic”. HA! Nice try. Marques goes on to say he met Miya two years ago at a Jehovah’s Witness conference (hmm 19 minus 2 is 17), but didn’t begin their romance until she was an “adult”. Word is he proposed shortly after her eighteenth birthday.
Marques says his family loves Miya, and, most importantly, they have “Jehovah’s blessing”. To that, the jury replied, “Oh, JEHOVAH says it’s OK? We find the defendant NOT GUILTY!” He also confusingly includes the fact that Miya is “like a daughter” to his music manager, 54-year-old Chris Stokes. She even calls him “Dad.” Ten years ago, Raz-B, a member of the R&B boy group B2K accused both Marques and Chris of sexual assault when he was a teen.

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.
Jehovah responded with, “Um, I know I told you not to pay any attention to birthdays, but, c’mon dude.”
There’s only one way to end this post, and that’s with a classic “GO HOME ROGER!”
