The star of ‘Love & Hip Hop’ joined the show to prove her boyfriend wasn’t gay.
Apryl Jones, star of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, recently revealed why she joined the program. The 34-year-old says she joined the cast to help dispel suspicions that her then-boyfriend, musician Omarion, was gay in an interview with MadameNoire.

After breaking her engagement with Omarion, she began a romantic relationship with his B2K bandmate Dreux “Lil’ Fizz” Frederic, which was harshly criticized by their co-stars. The termination of their relationship was reported in January 2020, according to MadameNoire. Jones’ dating of Frederic was investigated because it was considered that he and Omarion were close because they were in the same group.
