Mike Hill has been the target of cheating rumors on social media.
Even though things have been smooth sailing in Mike’s life since jumping the broom with former RHOA star Cynthia Bailey, it appears that cheating rumors are persisting online.
During the week of Nov. 1, 2021, the Twitter account @Alist_xo took to the app to call out Mike for allegedly cheating on Cynthia via inappropriate conversations and nude photos, per Bossip. The outlet shares that the account posted a slew of messages and pictures while accusing the sports commentator of being “easily swayed.”
However, Mike has called foul on the entire situation. Per TheNeighborhoodTalk, Mike denied the allegations to a fan via DM exchange captured by the blog.
“They are exposing you on Twitter bruh,” the fan wrote to Mike.
“Please don’t believe the BS,” Mike allegedly wrote back. “They’re not exposing me because THAT’S not ME. Don’t know this person or why they’re doing this but my lawyer has been contacted.”
Mike also allegedly went on to thank the fan for their concern and share that he “wouldn't do [Cynthia] like that."
Not to mention, TMZ caught up with the couple on Nov. 2, 2021, at LAX where they also asked them about the rumors. As the couple headed into the airport, Mike shared that the rumors “ are not true.”
Cynthia also said that they’re in a great place and “rumors are rumors.” Mike also said that if the rumors continue to persist, they plan on taking legal action.
There’s no denying that some celebs have been caught red-handed cheating on their spouse. But when it comes to Mike and Cynthia, the rumors are a bit far-fetched to believe since they appear to be smitten with one another.
There’s no telling when the rumors will die down, but it’s great that the couple is not allowing fiction to take a toll on their marriage.
