Erica Mena Apologizes To Woman She Accused Of Stealing Her Jewelry

The reality star’s home was robbed back in May, but she may have called out the wrong culprit.

Erica Mena is apologizing to a woman who she believed was wearing her stolen jewelry and purses, and who she called out by name on social media.

Back in May, the Love & Hip Hop: New York star revealed that her house had been robbed and offered a $20,000 cash reward for any info about potential culprits.

In a second social media post, Mena accused a woman named Christy Mahone of wearing her stolen luxury items.

"So this stripper  Christy Mahone is now allegedly wearing my jewelry and has all my purses," Mena wrote. "Girl be smart and give up all my belongings. If anyone knows her please contact me. I got a cash reward on her as well. 10,000 in cash to anyone who can lead me to the arrest of this woman as well."

In response, the woman posted a video revealing she had called her attorney and was threatening legal action in response to the allegations.

On Tuesday (December 7), Mena took to her Instagram and apologized.

"Last May, after our home was burglarized and some of my property stolen, I was informed by a number of sources that an individual named Christy Mahone had been seen in possession of my stolen property, under circumstances that suggested she knew it was stolen, and I posted statements to that effect on my Instagram account," the 34-year-old wrote. "I have since learned that the information I received about Ms. Mahone was not accurate, and so I now wish to take this opportunity to retract my earlier assertions concerning Ms. Mahone. To be clear, I no longer have any reason to believe that Christy Mahone was ever in possession of property she knew to be stolen from me, or that she had anything at all to do, directly or indirectly, with the robbery of our home. I apologize to Ms. Mahone."

In response, Mahone reposted Mena’s apology on her Instagram Story with the message, “GIRL BYE!!”
