Harvard is calling BS on Blac Chyna’s claims that she was accepted into the university’s prestigious business school.
Earlier today, TMZ reported that Chyna had sent them an acceptance letter from Harvard Business School Online inviting her to take a course called Business Analytics, which teaches students how to interpret data and make smart business decisions. The 40-hour course spans over an eight-week period.
The news came after Chyna posted a note on Instagram Monday (Apr. 22) talking about how she’s been trying to make better decisions for herself, her children and her loved ones.
“Looking back on a lot of my actions, I’m reflecting and realizing that confusion is a serious thing,” she wrote. “Of course I’m not proud of some of the pain I have caused and I’m working to be the best me…I don’t talk on things often, but I promise to give you guys more of me.”
Regarding her alleged admission to Harvard Business School Online, Chyna said to TMZ in a statement:
“Where I’m at now is a stage of realization and growth! I want to be great for myself and my kids. School is going to help me take things up a couple of notches. People are always talking about me, might as well talk about the good. I’m excited for the next chapter.”
This would be great news … if it were true.
According to a statement from Harvard University, Chyna (real name: Angela White) is either lying about being accepted to their online business school or she was gravely mistaken.
“Harvard Business School Online has not admitted nor provided an acceptance letter to a person named Angela White,” the school told TMZ.
Before Harvard called Chyna out, TMZ reported that a self-described “Social Media Renaissance Man” named Christian Emiliano reached out to Chyna offering to do her schoolwork for her for $3,250—$2,250 for the course and $1,000 for his team to complete the entire course for her.
“Our team will complete all the course work for you, all you have to do is take one test (we will provide you the study guide) and then take credit for the program,” Emiliano told her in an e-mail. “You can go on the Harvard campus and take a picture with a Harvard hoodie on / you can post updates on your snapchat and Instagram Story,” he added.
So, at this point, it’s looking like Blac Chyna was scammed by the Social Media Renaissance Man … because that admissions letter she received was clearly fake.
