In the latest episode of Stepping Into The Shade Room, Brittany Renner speaks candidly about her years on social media, her current views on romance, and her past relationship with NBA player and father of her child, PJ Washington, with host Thembi.
The social media superstar and fitness model became famous for her transparent views on sexuality. As well as showing off her attractive figure. Though some have disagreed with Renner’s opinions over the years, she remains true to herself and takes the time to share more of her “truth.”
Brittany Renner reflects on the criticism she received during her date with Washington
During the interview, Thembi questioned Renner about the criticism she received during her previous relationship with NBA player PJ Washington. At the time, Renner was 26 and Washington was 18.
Additionally, many people saw her as “trying to catch a come-up.”
I always wanted a relationship, I was always a one man woman. I think a lot of that narrative stems from when he tweeted, “You were just faking it the whole time.” And he never came to my rescue. So who will you believe? him or me And I’ve done nothing but play up that narrative that people think — he knows that. But why would he come to my aid when he’s mad at me?
The 31-year-old further explained that she unfortunately had to accept the criticism from all over the world. But says she can’t understand why people still have the same opinion about her today.
I don’t know why people still think the way they think about this situation. I love my child’s father more than anything. I don’t want to be with him. And our son was planned. I thought that was my type. I think it’s stupid of me to think someone who is only six years younger than me – let’s not even get into the age difference… I just really thought that was my person who understands and sees me for me because he never judged me. That’s how it looked – that’s obviously not true.
Renner went on to reiterate that if she wanted to “catch a come-up” from a man financially, she could have but never would.
Brittany Renner has been accused of “grooming” Washington throughout their relationship
As The Shade Room previously reported, Brittany Renner has been accused of “grooming” PJ Washington throughout their relationship. She was even accused of intentionally “capturing” the basketball pro when she became pregnant with her son.
However, Renner has always denied the allegations. In an exclusive interview with DJ Akademiks, she explained that she was on birth control during her date with Washington and it was actually him who wanted her to have his child.
I told you, ‘I can wait. I’m not in a hurry’…
She recounted Akademiks and recalled a conversation she had with Washington about having a child. She then shared her surprise that she hadn’t criticized other celebrity couples like Jay-Z and Beyoncé for their age difference.
