Eamon: I Have Never Dated Frankee
Controversial R+B star EAMON has slammed chart rival FRANKEE - for claiming she used to date him.
The 19-year-old New Yorker topped the charts with his song F**K IT (I DON'T WANT YOU BACK) - a bitter tune about a cheating ex-girlfriend - and is surprised by new singer Frankee's track F.U.R.B. (F U RIGHT BACK), which claims to be a retort to Eamon, following their two month relationship.
Eamon says, "There was big try-out and I actually know some of the girls who wanted to do the song, but I haven't met Frankee in my life. I think it's corny to death, but it's funny.
"I was not involved with F U Right Back and Frankee is definitely not my girlfriend or ex-girlfriend."
Eamon admits he isn't too upset about Frankee's claims - because he's set to make thousands of dollars in royalties from her single.
He explains, "The only way I was associated with her song was when I was asked for licensing permission by Frankee's representatives, which makes me a writer on her song by copyright law.
"They are having fun, it's cool, but in the end they are paying me for their fifteen minutes of fame and I welcome her to my world of ho-wop.
"I never knew she was going to say she was my ex-girlfriend. It's the funniest thing because even my aunt called me up and said, 'Is this really your ex-girlfriend?' It's all good though. Everytime it gets played, I get paid."
Despite Eamon's revelations, Frankee stands by her story.
Frankee says, "I don't where he got that story from. That girls were auditioned to create my track. After hearing the record, I started thinking that maybe it was about me and I actually have a friend at a record label. I presented the idea to her, so we wrote the song together."10/05/2004 13:53
