Omarion sent a brief PSA video to Dr. Phil after a woman believed she was engaged to the singer. He clarified that he was not the person she thought to have an online relationship with and let his fans know the dangers of talking to strangers online.
The term “catfish” is defined as a means to lure someone into a relationship using a fictional online persona.
A young woman by the name of Simone was brought on Dr. Phil after her cousin Rachel was concerned that she was being “catfished.” Simone believed that she was engaged to Omarion, despite never meeting him.
Simone also said his manager was requesting $3,000 to meet the R&B singer. She also claimed Omarion reached out to her through his fan page.
The online relationship lasted three years.
