Marques Houston Defends Relationship with Miya Dickey and Said They Didn’t Start Dating Until She Was 19

American R&B singer Marques Houston responded to backlash after tying the knot with a 19-year-old teenager.

The Sister, Sister star married his now-wife, Miya Dickey, in 2020 when he was 39 and she was only 19 years old.

Houston faced massive criticism over his relationship with Miya when he announced their engagement in 2020 after five months of relationship.

However, the musician said they ‘did not start dating until she was an adult.’

“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,” he wrote on his Instagram.

“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,” he added.

“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 Director because that position requires years of experience.”

The Extra, Extra singer said Miya is like a daughter to his manager and friend, Chris Stokes, and refers to him as a dad as she is friends with his daughter, Chrissy Morales.

“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.”

Marques also urged people to pay attention to their own lives rather than making rumors about him.

 “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,” he penned.

“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.”

He concluded his lengthy Instagram post by urging fans to “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.”
