“Not only have I never had a Honda Accord, at the time the song came out I was driving a champagne-colored Mercedes Benz 550.”

“He named so many women. Gabrielle Union, Gloria Valez, Meagan Good, he names like twenty girls,” Melyssa continued. “Nobody is remembered from that song except me in 2006. That song destroyed my relationship because of the way people talked about me. [Karrine Steffan’s] book solidified that I was a whore.”

“Meanwhile, I owned nothing. The activities that she did and that he was insinuating–I didn’t even know Game! I only met him once when he was one of 50 [Cent’s] G-Unit soldiers. All of this was my cross to bear and it was so difficult because no one stood up for me. No one defended me,” she said.

Hear Ford tell it via the YouTube clip above. At the time of this post, The Game had not responded to her comments.
