Aisha Mian Tells All about Her Negative Experience with Chris Brown
A fan said, “y’all calling her a nobody but yet he WAS IN HER DMs.”
She cautiously made a reference to Brown’s continuous attempts to interact with her over the past two years when Osterberg questioned about the most famous person in her DMs.
Osterberg asked, “Who’s the most famous person your DM’s right now,” and Mian refused to say the person’s name on-camera but hinted the person was Brown.
She claimed that the R&B singer had gotten in touch with her again around two weeks ago, which piqued her interest in what would come up during their talk.
Mian chose to engage in the conversation despite his long-standing interest in her. Brown announced they should get together and claimed he was finally in the city.
Uncertain of his motivations, she gave a neutral response, proposing they meet up for a “chill vibe,” but she clarified that he shouldn’t expect anything more.
Brown’s response to her openness was far from mature; he implied that it was strange of her to bring up such boundaries and even uttered bad words toward her.
Unimpressed, Main responded that she merely expected him to behave adultably. Brown then attempted to redirect the conversation away from the awkward incident by asking about her favorite movie.
The singer seemed to be trying to change the subject, but Main opted not to reply. She added that he had messaged her once more, continuing to express interest in a movie night, but she decided to end the conversation there.
Fans’ reaction to Aisha Mian’s situation
As news of Mian’s situation spread quickly online, admirers from all around the world commented with their viewpoints. Tea pages widely shared the video on social media networks, causing it to spread swiftly.
One fan shared their viewpoint, saying, “even if its just entertaining, its so weird, it being chris brown out of all ppl. i wouldve blocked that dude in a milisecond.”

Another said, “So you’re all blaming her for him being dramatic. It’s not her fault men can’t take no and move on respectfully.”
The third comment read, “She literally just wanted to know what he would say, she knew she wasn’t interested. y’all calling her a nobody but yet he WAS IN HER DMs.”
Who is Aisha Mian? A look at her
Mian is a well-known social media influencer who is most known for being one-half of the wildly successful twin TikTok duet known as the MianTwins on TikTok.
Main and her twin sister Azra, who were both born on February 26, 2001, started their journey to fame at a young age.
They made their first move by starting the MianTwins YouTube channel in January 2014, where they share their fashion knowledge, provide outfit suggestions, and discuss beauty regimens.
The MianTwins attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, but they ultimately decided to leave after only one year.
Their decision was motivated by a need to fully dedicate themselves to their developing social media professions.
Jasmine Goode and Girlfriend Melissa Marie Gets New Matching Tattoos – Look At Their Dating Life
Jasmine Goode and her girlfriend Melissa Marie took their relationship to new heights.
Fans first got to know Jasmine Goode on Season 21 of The Bachelor and Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise.

Goode and Marie have been together for the past two years, and the pair often share glimpses into their relationship via Instagram.
Recently, the 36-year-old television actress took their commitment to a whole new level by getting matching tattoos with her girlfriend, Marie.
A few weeks back, she teased fans with a peek of Marie getting a tattoo on her Instagram Story. Another Instagram Story showed the pair showing off their new tattoo while they hid the design.
However, last week, Goode finally revealed their new tattoo, showing a branch with three leaves tattooed in the same spot on their forearms, writing, “Enjoying the little things in life.”
Jasmine Goode and Melissa Marie have been dating for 2 years
Goode and Marie have been in a relationship for two years, since 2021. Their love story began after Goode’s appearance on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor, where she didn’t find love but ultimately found it off-screen with her girlfriend Marie.
While the details of how they first crossed paths remain unknown to the world, their love has been on full display as they’ve walked several red carpets together as a couple.
For instance, on December 9, 2021, they walked the red carpet together at Katie Welch and Jordan Kuker’s 8th Annual Winter Wonderland Toys for Tots Charity Event.
A close look at Jasmine Goode’s girlfriend Melissa Marie
Goode’s girlfriend, Marie, is a private person who prefers to stay away from the glitz and glamour of the entertainment industry.
Unlike Goode, Marie doesn’t seem to be associated with reality TV shows or fame, as indicated by her low-profile presence on Instagram.
Instead, she is an entrepreneur who has a background in athletics, having been an athlete during her college years.
More on Jasmine Goode
Although some people would consider Goode’s inclusion in the Vanderpump Rules cast to be a coincidence, she has a deeper connection to the show.
It may not be obvious, but her incorporation into the show is more natural than it seems because she presently works at SUR and has true friendships with some of the cast members.
The TV star hasn’t just appeared on-screen, but she has also contributed behind the scenes. She received two production credits in 2018—one for the TV show This Is LA and the other for the movie Socio.
Moreover, Goode was a pro dancer. She danced for the New York Jets and the Golden State Warriors. Additionally, she was also a cheerleader.
She was a cheerleader in high school and eventually became the team’s captain. She was even a member of the infamous Dallas Cowboys cheerleading team.

The actors, who had been together since 2017, finally took their relationship to the next level and finally tied the knot after being together for six years.
Kiana Madeira and Lovell Adams-Gray’s wedding was straight out of a fairytale

The pair shared the news via Instagram, writing, “It was everything that we prayed for, and more. We are officially Mr. & Mrs. Adams-Gray,” alongside several wedding pictures.
The actors who got engaged in January 2020 were surrounded by 200 guests at the castle-style mansion, Casa Loma, the perfect fit for their “ethereal royalty” wedding theme.
The Fear Street actress said, “It was a dream come true. A fairytale,” while her actor husband noted, “It was everything we prayed for, and more” to the People magazine.
Madeira wore an off-the-shoulder lace and tulle gown embellished with flowers and butterflies by Luca Sposa that she got from Liza Ray. With a custom-made matching Tania Maras veil, she completed the bridal look.
“This dress was the number one on my list from the very beginning when I saw it online and trying it on at Liza Ray in N.Y.C. just solidified my love for it,” she said to the outlet.
She flaunted a custom Tania Maras pearl choker and earrings by Karáhkwa Jewelry, an indigenous Canadian brand, and pearl-covered shoes by Charlotte Mills.
The Trinkets actress walked down the aisle to Justin Timberlake’s song ‘Pair of Wings’ played by the Soenen Sisters.
On the other hand, Adams-Gray wore a custom-made white three-piece suit from Alan David Custom Suits N.Y.C. and dress shoes by Luca Del Forte.

Pastor Samuel Kenga officiated the pair’s wedding, and they signed the registers in front of their close family and friends.
For the reception, the newlyweds changed their outfits as the actress swapped her gown for a short halter dress and her husband changed to a purple and a white suit.
The guests were served a four-course dinner, which consisted of salad, ravioli, 72-hour braised short rib, and dessert.
The newlywed couple are currently busy honeymooning in Portugal before they return to their busy life. The actress shared lovely pictures of their getaway on September 24, 2023, writing, “Our first travel experience as husband and wife.”

After dating for several years, the pair got engaged in January 2020. However, it wasn’t until February 2020 that the After Everything actress announced the engagement news via Instagram.
Showing off her engagement ring, she wrote, “Your words are my serenity and this love inside of me is bursting at it’s seams.”
In 2020, Madeira moved to New York City to be with Adams-Gray while he was filming Power Book II: Ghost. He took advantage of the opportunity to take their relationship further with a romantic proposal.
When the actress got to Adams-Gray’s apartment, she discovered a large cardboard box in the living room and stargazer lilies leading to it.
She opened the box and discovered Adams-Gray lurking inside, down on one knee, with a stunning ring in his hand. He proposed, and she said “yes” right away.
