Sidney Starr spoke with “The Real” about her past about lying about having a relationship with rapper Chingy years ago and the current situation with actor Darius McCrary after a viral video.
Sidney Starr breaks down the situation with the “Family Matters” icon to explain their relationship is a special friendship. Not one to be not associated with scandal from the past, Sidney Starr also explained the scenario years ago when she took a photo with Chingy and told the public they had a secret relationship going on. The rap career of Chingy was over at that moment as he couldn’t recover from the bad publicity.

Chingy has spoken about the controversy and Starr has apologized for the incident, but it clearly did not affect Starr the same way it did for the hip hop artist in terms of stoppage of career. The latest round of publicity surrounded a video with Darius McCrary and that didn’t take long to hit the rumor mill that the two were an item.

Although he denied that they were in a relationship, another video of the two kissing and getting close also went viral. After having the internet moment, Sidney Starr was invited to The Real to set the record straight.

“As you guys can see, it really, really, really hit us. It hit us hard. I don’t think either I or Darius knew how hard that this was gonna hit,” she said. “Society was not ready for this at all.” Starr clarified that they are “friends,” adding, “He’s a very good friend of mine. That’s all I’mma say.”

The hosts took a step back from joking about the viral moment, noting that within certain communities, even speaking about dating a trans person can be detrimental due to stigmas and anti-LGBTQIA+ beliefs. They even brought up the Chingy scandal and reminded Starr that she has been involved in something such as this before.

“I’m only human. I come from a very scratchy past, but I will say this: I am all about positivity,” the model answered. “Ms. Starr is coming with nothing but love and positivity and I want everyone to know that just because I have a past with something like that does not mean I’m that same type of person now.”
