Ron Isley’s Keyboard Player Cornell Thigpen Runs For His Life Butt Naked After Getting Caught Having Sex With His Friend’s Wife

Recently, The-Four-One-One was contacted by an individual who told us about keyboard player Cornell Thigpen getting chased down the street butt naked and shot at after one of his friends came home and caught him having sex with his wife.

Cornell Thigpen is a whore mongering musician in the gospel and R&B genre, who was reared in the Church of God In Christ.

According to his bio, Cornell has played keyboards for such artist as Baby Face, Chaka Khan and Ron Isley just to name a few.

Our source, who’s also a musician and played tours with Cornell, told The-Four-One-One that several years ago, Cornell was in California staying at a musician friend’s home while preparing for a tour.  The friend trusted Cornell to wait at his home with his wife while he left to run a few errands.

 

When his friend came home, he found Cornell in bed banging  his wife.  His friend went into a rage and immediately started beating Cornell  viciously.  Cornell was only able to escape the home after his friend stopped momentarily to get  his loaded gun.

The friend shot at Cornell several times to no avail while Cornell was running down the street butt naked.  The source said if the musician had the presence of mind to go straight for his gun, instead of opting to beat Cornell first, the incident would have ended in a fatality.

We reached out to several musicians who were quite familiar with the incident.  They said Cornell went around telling people his friend’s wife kept trying to seduce him despite his pleas for her to stop.  Personally, I think that excuse is a bunch of hogwash.

It doesn’t matter how flirtatious the woman may have been, if you’re lowdown enough to bang your friend’s wife in his home, while the friend went out of his way to help your career, you are a lowdown scumbag and home wrecker.

Another friend of Cornell told the Four-One-One Cornell still fears for his safety and became a licensed gun carrier to protect himself.

We also spoke to gifted gospel singer by the name of Ocie Jackson, who’s a member of Christian Faith Fellowship Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where Cornell once worked as Musical Director.

 

Ocie told us there were several scandals involving Cornell and various women at the church while he was still married to his first wife Felicia Thigpen.  Ocie said Cornell’s adultery was so bad that it led to his divorce and ouster from the church.  According to Ocie, one of Cornell’s alleged scandals involved an under-age girl but the pastor, Bishop Darrell Hines used his influence to sweep it under the rug.

While Ocie acknowledged Cornell’s superb keyboard talents, she was far more emphatic describing his “arrogant attitude and behavior that’s more consistent with a person on Prozac with a serious mental disorder.”

 – Grammy award winner Edwin Hawkins, the gospel star best known for the hit “Oh Happy Day,” has died at age 74.

Hawkins died early Monday at his home in Pleasanton, California.

While the world is remembering Hawkins for his major contributions to the gospel music industry, at least one gospel artist is blaming Hawkins for pursuing him and turning him out as a homosexual.

The artist (who asked to remain anonymous) say Hawkins pursued him as a teen and introduced him to the dark world of homosexuality.   He said  Hawkins, who referred to him as “cutie pie” once made him perform oral sex on him in his car in a church parking lot.

The artist said the late Walter Hawkins was gay and knew his brother Edwin was having sex with young men in his church

The artist says he hopes both Edwin and his brother Walter are rotting in hell.

BOMBSHELL!! Singer Maurice Mahon Says Our Story About R. Kelly Brutally Assaulting His Keyboard Player Rodney East Was “100% Accurate”

By: Freelance Reporter Tammy Washington, Posted December 27, 2017 at 7:08 am US/Central Email: thefouroneone@yahoo.com

CHICAGO–For the past several days, R. Kelly’s keyboard player Rodney East has been accusing The Four One One of posting “false blogs” about him and trying to defame his character when we didn’t know him from a can of paint before we found out he was brutally beaten by sex cult leader and pedophile R. Kelly.

It all emanated when a member of R. Kelly’s camp reached out to us about R. Kelly brutally assaulting Rodney on a basketball court.

According to our source, Rodney was playing good defense on Kelly, which frustrated the embattled singer enough to reach back and bust Rodney smack-dab in the face with his fist.  Rodney was rushed to a nearby hospital and treated for eight stitches.

Even more disconcerting, our source told us Kelly was taunting Rodney while he was still down and bloody, calling him a “punk bitch.”  The source said the vicious blow to Rodney’s face could have killed him .

If that wasn’t demoralizing enough, in the tradition of Ike and Tina Turner, Kelly drove Rodney to the hospital after the bloody beating and offered to pay for all his medical expenses as if the gesture would serve as solace and make up for the serious crime he perpetrated.

While Rodney was testi-lying to his Facebook faithfuls, telling everybody we need Jesus, another bombshell was dropping.

Maurice Mahon is a former background singer for R. Kelly, who happens to be a talented singer in his own right.   Unlike many of Rodney’s associates on Facebook, who happen to be members of the Kiss Rodney’s Butt At All Cost Church Of God In Christ Maurice had the valor and integrity to set the record straight about Rodney’s R&B beat down.

The Chicago native and musical director for Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow/Push Headquarters  was gracious enough to grant me a phone interview.  The following is an audio of Maurice Mahon’s phone interview in its entirety:

After becoming aware of our article, Rodney responded by posting the following, on Facebook:

“Wassup Good Ppl Of Social Media, Wanna make this Real Quick & Simple, there is a false blog swim’n around & I wanna let Every1 know that I’m All Good, My Wife & My Girls r Good & My Family is Good & GOD still gets the Glory even outta This, so if u hv come across this do Me a favor & pls don’t engage n any convo back & 4th on the post, just send up a quick Pray’r 4 whoever it is & their family & let’s take 2018 by Storm & stay on The Path GOD has set b4 Us, Much Luv 2 All Who reach’d Out with genuine Concern & Pls Know That @ the end of the Day GOD can handle this waaaayyyy bet’r than u or I Can, as I Always Say “Thank GOD 4 The Gift & The Responsibility Of The Gift…!!”

Given all the evidence, I’m curious to know why Rodney would jump on social media and lie to all his butt kissers, saying it didn’t happen.  Did R. Kelly pay Rodney to keep it a secret? Did he brainwash Rodney like he did his sex cult members?  Maybe Rodney is suffering from “Battered Man’s Syndrome.”

Instead of trying to shoot the messenger, ridiculing us strong black women for doing our job and telling the truth, he should redirect that energy towards the sex cult leader and pedophile who actually put hands on him.

Keyboard Player Rodney East Denies Getting Beat Up By R. Kelly, But His Sister Felicia East And Fellow Musicians Confirm It Did Happen

By: Freelance Reporter Glenda Wooten, Posted December 27, 2017 at 7:08 am US/Central Email: thefouroneone@yahoo.com

CHICAGO–Recently, The Four-One-One published and article about gospel singer Yolanda Adams’s keyboard player Rodney East getting brutally assaulted by R&B singer R. Kelly on a basketball court, which required him to have stitches.

My story was based on facts ascertained from sources with a great deal of credibility and no incentive to lie on Rodney or anyone else.   We sent our article to thousand of people via facebook’s inbox so people can be made aware of this egregious incident perpetrated by R. Kelly.

According to our source, Rodney was playing good defense on Kelly, which frustrated the embattled singer enough to reach back and bust Rodney smack-dab in the face with his fist.  Rodney was rushed to a nearby hospital and treated for eight stitches.

Even more disconcerting, our source told us Kelly was  taunting Rodney while he was still down and bloody, calling him a “punk bitch.”  The source said the blow to Rodney’s face was vicious and totally unexpected.

After becoming aware of our article, Rodney responded with the following, via a Facebook post:

“Wassup Good Ppl Of Social Media, Wanna make this Real Quick & Simple, there is a false blog swim’n around & I wanna let Every1 know that I’m All Good, My Wife & My Girls r Good & My Family is Good & GOD still gets the Glory even outta This, so if u hv come across this do Me a favor & pls don’t engage n any convo back & 4th on the post, just send up a quick Pray’r 4 whoever it is & their family & let’s take 2018 by Storm & stay on The Path GOD has set b4 Us, Much Luv 2 All Who reach’d Out with genuine Concern & Pls Know That @ the end of the Day GOD can handle this waaaayyyy bet’r than u or I Can, as I Always Say “Thank GOD 4 The Gift & The Responsibility Of The Gift…!!”

Now I don’t mind being ridiculed and called ugly names for publishing a true story that the subject didn’t want others to know about–that come with the territoryut when you question my journalistic integrity and call my report a “False Blog” I take it as a direct insult and I will expose you for the lying devil that you are.  I may be a female, but I’m not a weak pushover.

When Rodney lied to people on facebook, denying that it happen, he didn’t know I had already communicated with a plethora of individuals such as his fellow musicians, and even his own sister Felicia East, who admitted that the incident did take place.

I had a phone conversation with one of Rodney’s musician friends from Chicago, now living in Florida, who goes by the facebook name of Scoota Keyz.  Scoota said “Yeah, I heard Kellz fucked him up pretty bad. That shit was foul as hell too. It’ happened years ago though”

I spoke to another musician on Rodney’s Facebook friend’s list who ask to remain anonymous.  He said a drummer by the name of Gerald Wilson (who passed away a couple of years ago) told him about it shortly after it happened.  He said Rodney confided in Gerald about the entire incident.  He said “Rodney was hurt pretty bad.”

I also corresponded with Rodney’s sister, Felicia East via Facebook’s inbox.  Felicia said “We’re talking about a situation that happened years ago….this news is late.”

Given all the evidence, I’m curious to know why Rodney would jump on social media and lie by saying it didn’t happen.  Did R. Kelly pay Rodney to keep it a secret? Did he brainwash Rodney like he did his sex cult members?

Also, it doesn’t matter how long ago it happened.  The fact still remains that R. Kelly brutally assaulted Rodney and for some reason Rodney don’t want the world to know.

Lastly, if Rodney is suggesting that we’re lying about his adulterous lifestyle, we can easily prove that as well.

Gospel Singer Yolanda Adams’s Longtime Keyboard Player Rodney East Gets Beat Up By R. Kelly While Playing Basketball

 

By: Freelance Reporter Glenda Wooten, Posted December 24, 2017 at 4:03 pm US/Central Email: thefouroneone@yahoo.com

CHICAGO–Rodney East is a gifted and highly sought after keyboard player, who’s accompanied some of the biggest stars in the music industry.

Rodney, a native of Chicago, Illinois and the son of a Church of God In Christ (“C.O.G.I.C.”) elder,  has tinkled the ivories for such industry heavyweights as Yolanda Adams, Marvin Sapp, The Isley Brothers and R. Kelly, just to name a few.

Recently, The Four-One-One was contacted by an R. Kelly insider, who told us about a disturbing incident, in which Rodney was brutally assaulted by the R&B superstar at his mansion during a pick-up game of basketball.

According to our source, Rodney was playing good defense on Kelly, which frustrated the embattled singer enough for him to reach back and bust Rodney smack-dab in the face with his fist.  Rodney was rushed to a nearby hospital and treated for eight stitches.

Even more disconcerting, our source told us Kelly was  taunting Rodney while he was still down and bloody, calling him a “punk bitch.” The source said the blow to Rodney’s face was vicious and totally unexpected.

Despite getting sucker punched and treated like one of R. Kelly’s sex cult females, Rodney was recently seen on a Facebook video touting how wonderful it’s been to serve under R. Kelly for almost 20 years.   There are starstruck, female fans of Kelly’s, who wouldn’t let him get away with that.

Somebody needs to pull Rodney’s coattail and tell him that playing for a known pedophile and sex cult leader is not the most ideal subject for bragging rights–especially when the subject busted you in the face and caused you to have stitches.

Our source believe Rodney’s beat down by Kelly could be a divine warning from God for Rodney to stop cheating on his wife when he’s touring with artist on the road.  Our source told us Rodney is a womanizer/adulterer who has sex with various women in cities all across the country while his wife is at home with his children.

Even if you don’t see it as spiritual karma, there’s no way Rodney should still be playing for R. Kelly.  I don’t care how much money he has.  .

Maybe the next time Kelly gets the urge to assault Rodney, he might actually knock some sense in his head.

Dallas Mega Pastor Rickie G. Rush Outed By Gay Church Members As A Practicing Homosexual

Dianne Williams, Lead Singer of The Legendary Gospel Song “Jesus Can Work It Out” Is Accused Of Sexually Assaulting A Female Record Exec

 

 

 

Dianne Williams 2

CHICAGO–If you’ve followed gospel music over the last 30 years or so, you probably heard a gospel song entitled: “Jesus Can Work It Out” recorded in 1980 by the late Dr. Charles G. Hayes and the Cosmopolitan Warriors, based out of Chicago, Illinois.

Even if you don’t necessarily follow that genre of music, you’ve probably heard the remix of that song played in regular rotation in the early 2000’s on one of your local R&B stations in your city.  If that somehow got past you, you probably was watching ESPN recently, and heard it used as a theme song for one of the network’s sports shows.

Sadly enough, the song’s anointed lead vocalist Dianne Williams, is being accused of sexually assaulting another female by the name of Lisa Wheeler, a former Executive Vice President of ICEE Records. which is no longer exist.

Lisa said she was traveling with the late Dr. Charles G, Hayes and the Cosmopolitan Warriors choir on a promotional tour, and Dianne Williams somehow entered into her hotel room uninvited and sexually assaulted her while she was taking a shower.  Lisa said Dianne got naked, jumped in the shower after her, groped her vaginal area, while saying to her “Don’t fight it.”  After a brief struggle, Dianne reluctantly exited the shower.

Lisa said she was “afraid and deeply shaken” by the incident.  Lisa said she had no idea Dianne was a lesbian capable of boldly imposing herself on someone like that–especially given her prominence as the lead singer of such a classic and inspirational song.

Lisa’s account of that incident was corroborated by another member of the famous choir, who wanted to remain in anonymity.  That person told The Four-One-One- that Dianne and other lesbians in that choir have been blatantly promiscuous for many years.

They also shared that the Cosmopolitan House Of Prayer church, located on Chicago’s south side, has been a refuge for gays and lesbians for many decades and it was not a big deal for someone to be imposed upon, especially while traveling on the road.  Despite it being a crime in the eyes of the law, it was totally acceptable in that church environment.

The Four-One-One also spoke to Lisa’s brother Willie Wheeler, who said his sister told him about the incident this past Thanksgiving.

Willie added that he was extremely thankful and appreciative that The Four-One-One was promulgating this terrible and unfortunate incident so that perverted hypocrites like Dianne Williams can be exposed to the world and hopefully prevent it from happening to others.
