Sports Star Marlon Samuels Issues Official Statement Regarding Social Media Controversy
“It has been brought to my attention that there are allegations in social media circles, that a female television personality who goes by the moniker Yanique Curvy Diva has made several derogatory posts on social media about me. I am therefore informing the public that I refute the allegations made by Miss Yanique Barrett and I intend to take the necessary steps legally to defend my reputation in due course.
In my capacity as a sports ambassador, my job is to continue serving the people of Jamaica, the West Indies and by extension the cricketing world, and in addition the blind community by way of the Marlon Samuels Foundation for the Blind. In the circumstances, I am therefore requesting that the mentioned media personality and those associated directly or indirectly with her immediately cease and desist from embroiling my name in any controversy, (expressly or implied) surrounding this person. Failure to observe this request will result in legal action for an injunction to restrain you from further slandering and defaming my name and reputation.”
