Marques Houston received a lot of criticism over his new fiancé.
Reported on The Blast, Marques Houston, 38, was called out by people online for allegedly dealing with his now 19-year-old fiancé, Miya, when she was underaged. Last year, they went public 11 days after she turned 18, which is how people came to that conclusion.
Some Twitter users don’t agree with the situation, take a look:
Bruh 🤦🏾♀️ she’s my daughters age. You’re older than me…. she was 4 when you made “Naked”. 🤮

Welp, Marques responded to the criticism and started his statement by saying that with everything happening in the world in light of George Floyd, his relationship should be the last of people’s worries. He claims that he met Miya back in 2018 through a mutual friend. However, “online FBI agents” aka Black Twitter, found old IMBD listings of movie sets where Miya’s name was on it, working as an art director, which would mean she was about 14 or 15 at the time. Marques addressed that rumor and said that “anyone can post on IMBD” and said she would have been too young to work on set.
He admitted that Miya is “like a daughter” to Chris Stokes and claims they met through Chris’ daughter in 2018 at a Jehovah’s Witness convention. Marques said he didn’t start dating Miya until she was an adult.
Take a look at his full response:
“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.
