R&B singer Ella Mai is in the midst of an enormous crisis. A British man on social media leaked what he is claiming as an Ella Man "s*xtape."
The video shows a woman who bears a striking resemblance to the R&B singer, performing s*xual acts on a man, while in a car. Ella Mai's people have been working hard to get the video removed from Twitter.
Some websites have re-published screenshots from the alleged s*xtape. Here is the link to one such screenshot below:
Some are suggesting that the release of the alleged s*xtape may be a marketing ploy by Ella Mai's camp. Ella has an album release a few weeks away, and some are suggesting that the alleged "leak" may be a way to drum up interest in the artist.
One music industry insider told MTO News, "Nowadays people do anything to get their numbers up. Kim Kardashian is almost a billionaire off of s*cking on camera."
So far Ella Mai's camp have not authenticated the video. They have gotten it removed from most social media platforms though.
Originally from London, Ella moved to New York City at the age of 12 before returning to England after graduating from The Queens High School of Teaching, Bellerose, NY.
While studying at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute London (BIMM London) in 2014, she competed on season 11 of The X Factor as part of a trio, Arize, but didn’t advance beyond the initial audition for the judges. The group broke up shortly thereafter.
The following year, Ella Mai uploaded a four-track solo EP of originals to SoundCloud titled Trouble. After being discovered on Instagram, she signed to DJ Mustard’s label 10 Summers Records. Her father is Irish and her mother is Jamaican.
