38-year-old Marques Houston is receiving support from former B2K manager Chris Stokes on the decision to marry his 19-year-old fiancé Miya.
Earlier this month, Twitter lost its mind after they realized Marques is engaged to a 19-year-old named Miya. Back in March 2019, Marques announced he had proposed to Miya. They first started dating in September 2018 but not many people knew her age until recently.
To make things more interesting, reports surfaced that Miya calls Chris Stokes her “dad” and unverified social media rumors that she is a runaway. Marques defended his relationship and denied dating Miya before she was legal.
He said, “I met Miya in 2018 through a mutual friend. Never before then, did I even know she existed. 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 ?.”
Twitter has been tearing Marques to shreds with one fan writing,, “can someone please explain why Marques Houston, a 38 year old geezer, is engaged to a 19 year old girl who he allegedly knew before she was 18? They announced they were in a relationship 11 days after she turned 18 last october, and now comments on the pdfile’s insta are limited.”
Another fan pondered on social media, “Marques Houston is really engaged to a 19 year old. Imagine having to get a Caprisun out the cooler at your own wedding because you too young to drink.”
Marques received some support from Chris Stokes who wrote, “I was there when your mother died. I carried her body out your house with your brother! #family I always got you. Jehovah always got you bro! Great person friend and spiritual man! Winner and Boss @marqueshouston.”
