Reggie Bush's Alleged Mistress: Reggie and I Are Just Friends!

She insists there was no physical contact between her and Reggie. Do you believe her?

January Gessert, the woman accused of breaking up Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian after being seen leaving Reggie’s house March 17, held a press conference March 31 to express her innocence. “I’m shocked, frightened and crushed that leaving a friend’s house could be so misconstrued to turn my whole life upside down,” January, 27, told reporters March 31 at the Los Angeles offices of her attorney, Gloria Allred. “I can’t believe people and the media will go to such great lengths to create a completely fabricated story to boost ratings.”

“[January] and Reggie have had a relationship as friends for five years, but the relationship has always been, and continues to be just that — of friends and nothing more,” Gloria added. She explained that Reggie and January met while Reggie was still in college. “The truth is that January did stay at Reggie’s house on March 16, but she stayed there with two other friends, [one male and one female]. January and her friends watched a movie, while Reggie packed for New York and slept alone. January left early in the morning. She has been the victim of someone else’s need for drama.”

Though multiple news outlets have asked January to tell her story, Gloria said she has refused because January is “not willing to tell a lie and pretend something happened between her and Reggie.”

January, who is not considering legal action against any media outlets who reported the story, said she has had no contact with Kim, but that she has spoken with Reggie as recently as March 30. She said Reggie is just as shocked and confused by the situation as she is.

As for January’s plans for the future, she said her musical group, Superhero, will release its first single this summer. She describes Superhero’s sound as “electro hip-hop pop” music, and Gloria said, “I might dance to it if I can learn how to do hip-hop.”
