A bombshell revelation, Music Journalist Touré Neblett, recently featured in the “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary, has been called out for sexual misconduct.

dream hampton’s Lifetime documentary has caused many survivors of sexual misconduct/assault to step forward and speak their truths. The latest to share their story is a makeup artist who worked with none other than Touré. Going only by the name ‘Dani’, the former co-worker left a long comment beneath an Instagram post made by The Clubhouse with Mouse Jones. Touré and Jamilah Lemieux were with Mouse Jones on his titular podcast to discuss the documentary and ensuing aftermath. Detailing her experience in the comments below, Dani shared that Touré harassed her frequently while she worked with him on a show.

The since-deleted comment was caught by social media immediately and went viral. In the admission, Dani says she “used to work with him on a show in 2017 and he couldn’t stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked” and more. Giving additional details to Essence, Dani continued sharing her experience.

Touré : From accuser to abuser

“I was always kidding”

“I worked with him most of 2017, I left in October, before he left,” Dani stated. After her resignation, she reported Touré to human resources. According to his rep, Touré left Time shortly after because his agreement was over. Offering receipts to support her claims, Dani submitted screenshots of an apology Touré sent via Instagram DM in November 2017.

 

The notion of seeing her abuser in media appearances repeatedly inspired Dani to share her story.

“When I saw him going around as R. Kelly’s docuseries spokesman to different radio stations, the lies had to stop. I’ve worked with Mouse Jones before and wanted him to know the truth.”

In response to the accusation, Touré has issued a response through his rep:

“On the show, our team, including myself, engaged in edgy, crass banter, that at the time I did not think was offensive for our tight-knit group. I am sorry for my language and for making her feel uncomfortable in any way. As a lead on the show, I should have refrained from this behavior. I have learned and grown from this experience.”

Unmoved by his response, Dani took to Instagram with more information.

While Touré continues to make appearances for “Surviving R. Kelly”, many are expecting him to be replaced. As a consequence of his outing as an abuser, Terry Crews has canceled a live appearance for the Touré show. dream hampton commented on Twitter that she was completely unaware of Touré’s actions.

Even more startling is that Dani let on there could be more accusers.

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.
