Buckeey, also known as Shay Johnson, has gained notoriety as the short tempered season 2 contestant on Flavor of Love and as a Charm School standout. In addition to her reality TV stint, however, she also became a controversy magnet as she appeared in a sex tape that circulated on the internet last month. Now, she’s breaking her silence and denying having any park in its being leaked to the public.
In an exclusive interview with AllHipHop.com, the former Flavor of Love contestant claims that the sex the tape’s distribution was done without her permission, and she had no intention of using it for publicity as some have claimed.
“It troubled me to find out my intimate act of love was classified as a sex tape. I didn’t speak on it because I knew how tender the situation was between me and my partner,” Buckeey told to AllHipHop.com. “I didn’t want to point fingers at anyone or come out with any names because it was then and still is very much my personal business.”
Buckeey was one of the contestants on the second season of the reality dating series Flavor of Love, where she competed for the heart of love searcher Flavor Flav. Although she was a standout on the show, she was eliminated after she had a dangerous fight with another contestant and nearly pushed her off a second story balcony.
Since the release of the sex tape, Buckeey has had to deal with boos and mocking questions about her sex life, which she was not prepared to deal with. In attempt to mend her reputation, she has decided to address the controversy as this is something that she can no longer ignore.
“Over these past few weeks I have been tortured by strangers about what happened…So I’m forced to make a statement,” she said. “The truth is what I did was out of love for someone and for he and I to share and reflect on. It was never meant for thousands of people to view and make comments on. So from this point the concentration should be on where I’m going not what I did. All I ask is for my fans to continue to love me and the haters can keep their job too.”
