So that’s what it was.” In responding to those comments, according to Vibe, Mena said that Envy was “ashamed” of his wife.
In an Essence magazine feature on their life together, Envy said:
… Not to sound too crazy, but she’s my everything. She’s my wife, she’ll turn into my slut. Everything we want to do in bed, we do. I’ve been a cowboy. I’ve been Barack Obama. I’ve been a police officer. And one time, I was Maxwell.”

In an Instagram post before going live with The Breakfast Club on October 26, Envy made no reference to the controversy:
Envy responded to the allegations on The Breakfast Club saying, “I don’t know where [the messages] came from. Whoever it was has been chasing all the reputable blogs [and] nobody posted it. And I guess they found one that has.” Envy later retweeted the Famelous tweet about the messages.

I’m going to take it back to the streets. It’s going to be all hardcore s***.” But then I realized I have different feelings for different moments. Yeah, sometimes I want to hear a grimy, gritty song. But then other times I want to have my shirt off and show my beach body and do some Jersey fist-pumping. But then sometimes, I want to chill with my wife and ride down the street and be sexy and then sometimes, I want to bounce around and act a fool in the club. I wanted to have all those elements on my album. I knew I wanted to have all the moods. It goes everywhere.” The album will be his sixth release since 2003.
