A trans woman by the name of “Mariah” was not moved by Yoba’s confession and shared her own confession about an intimate time she shared with the actor. She shared the experience on Facebook claiming to have had sex with Yoba as a teen sex worker in New York.
“What Malik paid me to do, as a 13 and 16-year-old, wasn’t love, his ignoring that I was clearly a child prostitute, wasn’t love. Paying for cheap thrills and secret orgasms; begging for unsafe, unprotected sex from a runaway Trans teen, while enjoying stardom as a successful artist and businessman ….isn’t love.”
