John Conner who is best known for being the Coach for the Infamous Dancerettes has some serious charges being filed against him. Information was brought to my attention several weeks ago that parents were filing charges on him for not only statutory rape but also the criminal exposure of HIV. Since no official receipts were provided I never spoke on it.

Coach John wrote a long Facebook post of him trying to commit suicide. This is around the time that information was brought to me about charges being filed on him. The Facebook post made perfect sense. John might have been preparing himself for the damage that was on its way before it was made public.

Coach John was arrested Friday for criminal exposure to HIV, soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor and statutory rape by an authority figure in Memphis, TN. John’s bail was $100,000.

He has since posted bail and took to Facebook to clear his name before situations spun out of control.

Here are my thoughts.

According to what I’ve been told. Two of the boys were on his dance team. He has had sexual encounters with both. One of the victims contracted HIV and the victim named John as a sexual partner. Both of the boys who are alleged to have sex were and still are to my knowledge under age. Unfortunately, no one is trying to frame Coach John. I think he’s a good guy who just made a stupid mistake and continued the mistake while knowing it was wrong. John is a black gay man with a platform and who is looked up to. Instead of focusing on his dance team and taking it to the next level he allowed himself to be consumed by desires and made careless decisions.

I do not believe in some of the HIV laws. John might have informed all of his sexual partners of his status. That doesn’t mean someone wouldn’t lie about not being told. In the state of Tennessee, a 16-year-old cannot consent to sex. Parents have trusted you with their children and you put them in harm’s way. He has tarnished his brand before it was built. At this point in the game, all I can tell John to do is log off of all social media.

You can trust and believe that Bring It will disassociate themselves with just like they did with the Tamia situation.

My thoughts are with the parents, the teenage boys and the Infamous Dancerettes. Instead of focusing on competing this weekend at Buck or Die competition in Atlanta, GA hosted by the Dancing Dolls. They have to hear about their coach’s legal matters.

 

How do you explain something like this to youth?

 

I will update as the story develops.

    Its sad. But i agree with your spill on it. I thought it was a rumor at first because people do get jealous looking from the outside thinking he has this and that. But after looking into things i see the accusations are true. Im not worried about him im worried about the parents and children who are both going to need counseling from this tragic event.

    The article says he made a mistake and continued to make the mistake over and over while keeping owing it was wrong. A mistake is forgetting to put eggs in my cake. This was a calculated decision by a grown MAN to betray the children and parents that trusted him. Our community has a history of being silent about rape since slavery. It is a big deal! It was not a mistake. Let’s not down play this horrible act of someone that was trusted with children. He was wrong, he knew he was wrong. I’m sorry for those kids and the families. Not the adult who made a calculated and horrific choice to betray them.

    Its so sad and disgusting what John has been doing. These kids looked up to him and respected him. John, you were supposed to be changing these kids life for the better. You changed they life alright but not for no damn better. I advise you to get on your knees and pray hard to Allah(swt)

    This hurts my heart because it’s so so sad and I just experience a similar situation with my daughter’s step team. Only difference it was girls and the coach didn’t have HIV. No it wasn’t my daughter but it was girls on the team. Me as parent and how close we was it seem like it was my daughters and it just sadden me because we trust these ppl with our kids and something like this happens sorry back to your story that just brought me back so new we still dealing with it. But I agree with you 100% and when I read the article I said the same thing now you asking God and they making this up n trying to steal your company then I see his mom interview and she stands behind him 100% calling these boys lairs and not once say to herself if this was my son and apologize to them and their parents. Now you supposed to stand behind your kid but you also supposed to let your child know when they’re wrong. Not go along with the B.S. very upsetting. I don’t believe he told them he had HIV and they have messages and nudes pictures so how it’s a lie. Justin I agree with you……

    This is a grown man who had a responsibility to teach dance to a group of kids. This article is BS!! First of all a grown up doesn’t continue to make the same “mistake”. WTF?…This grown man made the “decision” to violate a couple of his male students This is what he did!! He knew his sexual or health issues and yet he infected a child…This is not a mistake this is a selfish act and a violation of a minor and their trust. I wouldn’t of had my child in his class period!! He gave off very negative vibes in my opinion. I never trusted him for some reason and my concerns have proven to be true. My hopes are for the kids and their families that he betrayed, will be able to move on from this unfortunate situation. This man will have to account for his actions and the crimes he has committed period!

Back to Da Cell! ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Alum Apollo Nida Arrested AGAIN After Violating Parole

mm

Published

on

Apollo Nida just celebrated his release from prison last week and now the RHOA alum is behind bars again! According to Page Six, US Marshals detained Apollo for breaking a technical condition of his release.

Having just finished five years behind bars, Nida was headed for a prison release program. But now he’ll have to postpone reuniting with his children and fiance because he violated his probation. According to a representative, Nida isn’t quite arrested, but there “was an order of the court bring him into custody”. While the terms of Apollo’s release aren’t public, he was allegedly detained for violating conditions of his release.

Apollo, who was released early due to credit for time served, was initially sentenced to 96-months behind bars. He was expected to complete a prison release program in Philadelphia. Now, it’s questionable what the future holds for the two-time felon.

Apollo’s fiance, Sherien Almufti hasn’t released a formal statement explaining what happened. However, she did post a recent photo of herself and Nida on Instagram with a scathing caption calling out his probation officer. Sherien said “For those who are confused @apollonida03 didn’t violate a goddamn thing. Another crime against a black man in the system. Jealousy is a disease and his PO will die mad!!”

Chris Brown Dragged For Insulting Victor Cruz, Karrueche Tran

mm

Published

on

Chris Brown’s recent behavior is a lesson that domestic violence has no limitations. The singer and proven abuser has shown his true colors again by leaving harassing comments beneath Victor Cruz’s Instagram post.

Targeting the fashion sense of Karrueche’s longtime boyfriend Victor Cruz, Chris Brown left several disparaging comments in close succession. Stating he needed a stylist and she should “upgrade ya man,” Chris Brown is still attacking his ex after five years of separation.

The one-time couple split in 2015 after a very public shouting match following Karrueche’s discovery that Chris fathered a love child with Nia Guzman, a stripper from Texas. During the lengthy argument, Chris forced himself into Karrueche’s vehicle and despite being dropped off at a different location, he arrived at her home to argue at 3 am. This led to Karrueche securing a restraining order against the singer in 2017, approved for 5 years.

During the hearing where Karrueche petitioned for a restraining order against Chris Brown, she provided evidence of threatening messages and testified that Chris had physically abused her. To make matters worse the physical violence took place while Chris Brown was on probation for the brutal abuse of Rihanna! The text messages Karrueche received contained threats like “Bitch I will beat the sh*t out of you” and “I will make your life hell.”

The comments Chris made beneath the photo of Karrueche and Victor were not light humor. In the past, Chris Brown left threatening messages beneath a photo of Tran and Michael B. Jordan. Stating “Imma kill blood”, Chris Brown threatened her and the actors lives, making good on his promise to “make you hate me even more.”

Fans of Karrueche were quick to point out how childish and threatening Chris Brown’s messages were. But what’s more important is that Chris Brown’s comments may violate the terms of his restraining order. If Karrueche’s terms include clauses for social media use, CB could be in trouble. Karrueche’s current order doesn’t expire until 2022, so maybe the singer should focus on backflips before he lands in jail.

Fans of the talk show host and those supporting her best life as she divorces Kevin Hunter, want to know who her flavor of the month is. Thanks to Bossip, we now know that 54-year-old Williams is getting cozy with a 27-year old named Marc Tomblin.

Bossip discovered the identify of Wendy’s new man and quickly uncovered his criminal history. While Wendy is aware of his muddy past, she says she knows what she’s doing. Let’s hope, sis!

Wendy’s new beau is a convicted felon who claims to be a financial investigator and blogger according to his LinkedIn profile. But before he hooked up with Wendy, Tomblin was arrested for robbery with a dangerous weapon and breaking and entering. Still, Wendy doesn’t care about his past and is declaring it a hot girl summer with the rest of us.

Ms. Wendy Thee Show Pony called out Kevin for having “a full baby with a woman he was involved with for 15 years” while keeping her cooped up. Proud to be living her best life, Wendy is just enjoying Marc Tomblin’s company despite their May-December age difference.

As for whether things will ever get serious for her again, Wendy says not so fast! During a recent taping of The Wendy Williams Show, she gushed about her newfound freedom. Stating, “I don’t have a boyfriend, but I must admit I am rediscovering my love of men.”, Wendy has made it clear she’s not looking for a long time, just a good one.

Are you here for the new Wendy?
