Chingy kicks it for real at The Loft

Two years after transgendered beauty Sidney Starr set the internet ablaze with rumors that she and St. Louis rap star Chingy were in an intimate relationship, Starr posted a video confessing that she made the whole thing up.

“In life people make mistakes – big mistakes – and I’m one of those people,” Starr said in a video that was posted on Worldstar Hiphop. “And I want to give a huge apology to Chingy for anything I caused to throw dirt on your name I was wrong. I want to say I was wrong 100,000 times and I want to get off my chest.”

In a sometimes emotional confessional, Starr goes on to say that not only did she and Chingy not have a relationship, but he didn’t know that she was transgendered when they she met him briefly back in 2010.

“I met him as a fan because I was a backup dancer. He didn’t know anything about me didn’t know anything about me or about my background,” Starr said. “I just want everyone to know the things I said about Chingy weren’t true. I made a mistake. Being transgendered is hard and I thought what I was doing gave me a little notoriety, people paid attention to me. It was the biggest mistake I ever made in my life. Every time I think about it, it just makes me want to go back through the hands of time. I really want to change the past and do it differently. I was just stupid and I’m sorry. To anyone that was affected I’m just sorry. I was wrong.”

Starr admits that the brief interaction that she had with Chingy was nothing more than the usual celebrity meeting/photo op.

“I know this is going to be a video where people talk bad about me, but I was young when I did that. I was 23,” Starr said. I realize that there are just some things you don’t do. I met a lot of celebrities. I met Chingy. I was a fan. I took a picture with him. He was nice. That was it.”
