Why he didn’t defend himself

Ben noted that Nayte never ran to the media to defend himself or speak out about the breakup with Michelle Young. Nayte revealed it’s because he knew he would never win the fight. It was Michelle’s season and people love her. Fans have no loyalty to him and he gets that. He used the comparison of Batman and Robin to say that everyone wants to see Batman, not the sidekick Robin.

The headlines that were out about Nayte were not true. He laughs because one woman he was seen with is his best friend’s fiance who is getting married in a few months. Another photo of him out with a woman was actually one of Michelle’s best friends. Nate still maintains he never cheated on Michelle.
