Comedian Mike Epps was caught attempting to cheat on Twitter by his own wife. The married man and father of four was flirting with a young woman through the social media site.
Epps, 44, sent a tweet to user @CeciCitra on Monday night. He asked the user why she gave up her Instagram account.
She replied to Mike and said, “Not anymore. Wasn’t getting the likes I deserve.”
Epps tried to move their public conversation into his direct messages. It’s a way of communicating in private through the social networking site. His wife of nine years, Mechelle Epps, interrupted their brief Twitter conversation with the eyeballs emoji. She let Mike and the world know that she was watching.
The hour that she was speaking to Mike Epps, she revealed to her followers that she had been blocked by the actor. She included the caption: “I. Am. Weak.”

The woman who spoke with Mike on Twitter refers to herself as “Sharon.” She shared several screen caps of their conversation and the incredible “fallout” from their conversation, thanks to Epps’ wife.
Even fans were amazed by Mechelle Epps’ crafty Twitter skills. Some of Mike’s fans shared several hilarious memes and gifs on the social networking site.

Unfortunately, Epps isn’t the first public figure to get caught cheating on social media. He joins the ranks of politician Anthony Weiner, Ashton Kutcher, Jude Law, The Dream, and many other men in Hollywood.
As previously reported via the Inquisitr, adult film star Mia Khalifa put Bronco Bills player Duke Williams on blast when he slid into her Twitter direct messages. The football player asked Khalifa if she was in Miami, and she responded that she was there but with her boyfriend.
Mia didn’t like that Duke was trying to hit on her, so she blasted him on social media. She shared a screencap of their conversation with the following caption: ” Warning: Trespassers in my DM’s will be shot and hung out to dry in public.”

A few weeks later, it was reported via Radar Online that Duke Williams is dating Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams, which means he was attempting to cheat on her. Duke’s girlfriend appears to be unfazed. An inside source told the celebrity gossip site that Porsha believes that Mia was trying to get her 15 minutes of fame.
It’s hard to claim whether or not Mike Epps was attempting to cheat on his wife. However, it’s strange that he tried to send a direct message with a strange woman he’s never met before. Luckily, Mike Epps’ wife is smart, and was able to catch him before anything happened.
