The model — who has been tied to the likes of Drake and Flo Rida in the past — and the former Source editor allegedly carried on their fling at the peak of his career, according to an interview he gave to The Danza Project earlier this month.
“I have fucked some of the most beautiful-lest women on this planet,” he told the show’s hosts. “A gang of ’em. I used to be the owner of The Source magazine. Top rappers and top actresses.”
He continued: “I like light-skinned, dark-skinned — I love women. I fucked Melyssa Ford at my video shoot. And we kicked it. We went on a date. I flew her from Canada. She’s a real sweet person, you know what I’m sayin’?”

It wasn’t too long ago that Benzino was having to defend being branded a deadbeat dad by his daughter, rapper Coi Leray.
During an appearance on the We In Miami Podcast on July 27, the 58-year-old music industry veteran opened up about his rocky relationship with Coi.
Host Slim Stunta asked Benzino if he felt his daughter owed him an apology, to which he responded by saying: “I got thick skin, man. I’m one of those people like, let’s just forget it and move forward.”
The former Source magazine publisher then became visibly emotional over the discussion about his 26-year-old daughter.
“I went through a lot, man,” he said while crying. “And it was hard for me to be looked upon — like I’ve been called all kinds of shit, but a deadbeat dad? Come on, man.
“I love my daughter. I don’t want to be that. I don’t want to be known as that. I don’t care what people think, but that hurt me. That’s my daughter, I raised her.”
He added: “When people say I hate on Coi’s career and jealous and all this, that shit is like, man, it’s evil. Because my love is huge for that little girl, man. That’s my little girl, man.”
Benzino then admitted that he isn’t “proud” of arguing with Coi Leray on social media, describing their public spat as “one of the worst things I’ve been through in my life. I’ve been through hell.”
