Benzino has denied that he had a relationship with trans actress Shauna Brooks. He took to Twitter, saying, “This is the movie that me and Shauna Brooks played in. Though we never did scenes together, the director gave my number to Shauna because she wanted to rent out the Crab Trap for an event, I had a couple of conversations and still to this day we never met in person.”
He continued, “The movie is a comedy/drama and the first time I ever did a comedy. It already won an award and is debuting on Tubi next month. Don’t be fooled by fools who just want to defame my character.”
He added, “They won’t get away with it but until then I will keep my progress and still treat people with respect while displaying professionalism no matter what race or gender they happen to be. I know who I am as well as the people who know and love me, anyone else doesnt matter anyway.”
He also went on to say that he is a straight man who respects the LGBTQIA+ community.
