Dallas Cowboy’s Quarterback Dak Prescott Is The Latest House Negro To Be Repudiated

By: Freelance Reporter Tammy Washington, Posted August 7, 2018 at 10:11 am US/Central 

DALLAS, TEXAS–Since saying he did not believe the national anthem was the right venue to protest social injustices, Dallas Cowboys quarterback and supreme House Negro Dak Prescott has caught flak from black people in and around the NFL as well as from some outside professional sports.

Prescott, the emboldened Uncle Tom said he knew there would be a backlash, so it did not catch him by surprise.

“I made my statements. I stand by what I said,” Prescott said Sunday. “Some people may have misunderstood or whatever, but I know what I said, and I feel strongly about what I said. It is what it is.”

On July 27, Prescott was asked to respond to his slave master Jerry Jones’s comments at the start of training camp that Cowboys players will stand for the anthem. The NFL and NFL Players Association have had meetings about anthem protocol after the league announced it was setting aside a ruling that players have to stand if they are on the field for the anthem but may remain in the locker room if they want to.

“I never protest during the anthem, and I don’t think that’s the time or the venue to do so,” Prescott said last month. “The game of football has always brought me such a peace, and I think it does the same for a lot of people, a lot of people playing the game, a lot of people watching the game, a lot of people that have any impact of the game. So when you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game, it takes away. It takes away from that. It takes away from the joy and the love that football brings to a lot of people.

“So for me, I’m all about making a change, making a difference, and I think this whole kneeling and all that was all about just raising awareness. The fact that we’re still talking about social injustice years later, I think we’ve got to that point. I think we’ve proved and we know that there’s social injustice. So I’m for taking a next step that whatever that step may be for action, and not just kneeling. I’ve always believed in standing up for what I believe in, and that’s what I’m going to continue to do.”

Prescott said he respects the players who have protested during the anthem, but he believes there is a better way to bring about a solution.

On social media and in news media, Prescott has taken heat for his unforgivable remarks. Prescott was recently depicted on a mural in Dallas as a character from the film “Get Out,” with a gasping, terrified look and tears falling from his eyes.

“Everybody has their own opinion,” Prescott said Sunday, regarding the mural.

Prescott said he is aware that the issue of protesting during the anthem has been a polarizing topic.

“That’s what controversial means,” he said, “and this is probably one of the most controversial topics we’ve had in the game since I’ve been in.”

Charlamagne Tha Rapist Should Be Fired From The Breakfast Club And Repudiated By All

By: Freelance Reporter Tammy Washington, Posted July 30, 2018 at 10:19 am US/Central 

NEW YORK–Charlamagne Tha God, the popular Breakfast Club co-host, author, and MTV2 star, is used to talking about his come up.

His 2017 book, Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It, chronicles the rise of an “ex-felon from Moncks Corner,” boasting “that little boy on the dirt roads of Moncks Corner, South Carolina, is a grown-ass man now and has managed to realize all the dreams I had for myself.”

But not so hidden in Charlamagne’s (birth name: Lenard Larry McKelvey) rags-to-riches narrative is the story of a young woman named Jessica Reid. Reid, whose name has been inextricably linked to Charlamagne since 2001, says the radio host raped her when she was 15. She also contend that Charlamagne has continued to “violate” her by denying the sexual-assault allegation and offering up his own version of events to his many followers and fans.

A Berkeley County incident report from June 2001 details the alleged sexual assault. According to the report, police responded to the Short Stay Naval Recreational Center in Charleston, South Carolina, on June 9, 2001. There, Reid’s friend told authorities they had been given a drink that “tasted like soda.” She said she woke up to a man trying to kiss her.  She then “found Reid, in the room across from where she was, naked and crying stating that she had been raped.” The two girls were subsequently transported to the Summerville Medical Center, a 45-minute drive away.

McKelvey, aka Charlamagne, was arrested on June 22 and served with a warrant for criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the second degree. That warrant stated that “the Defendant, who is a twenty two year old adult male, did willfully, unlawfully and feloniously engage in penile/vaginal intercourse with a fifteen year old female child,” and that Reid had implicated Charlamagne while at the Summerville Medical Center, where examinations corroborated the sexual assault. The warrant also revealed that the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office was initially contacted by Reid’s mother, Joslyn Sullivan.

According to The Blast, Reid was “uncooperative” with prosecutors during the case and, “as as a result, they felt a conviction of Charlamagne on the arrested charge would be impossible.”

Charlamagne pleaded guilty at the time to “contributing to the delinquency of a minor,” a less-severe charge, and received three years’ probation. Now, almost two decades later, Reid’s mother Joselyn has taken responsibility for her daughter’s lack of cooperation, telling The Blast that “she was trying to protect her daughter from suffering.” With the support of her mother, the now 32-year-old Jessica Reid is exploring her legal options and speaking out about the allegation.

Usually, Charlamagne’s famous interview subjects are the ones in the hot seat. But in a 2013 video, the radio host addressed the sexual-assault charges against him—albeit in an interview favorably titled “Charlamagne Explains Being Accused Falsely of RAPE.” In the video, DJ Akademiks asks Charlamagne how he “beat” the rape charge, to which he responds, “I didn’t do it.” He says that he was 20 years old when he threw the party (according to the arrest warrant, he was actually 22), and specifically recalls a girl who was in attendance: “She got drunk, high, whatever… something happened in the room with a couple of my dudes.” He insist that he had left at that point, continuing, “the next morning, I’m hearing she says she got raped.”

Charlamagne says he was told at the time that his cousin was in jail for the sexual assault, so he went in to “talk to the detective myself.”

“I just told the detective, look, I take full responsibility for anything that happened in the house last night… nobody got raped.” He later learned that his cousin had never been arrested.

McKelvey claims he was arrested because police had no one else to pin the crime on: “So being that I went down there and took full responsibility, so, lock him up.”

“Whoever touched her, it wasn’t me,” he added. “I got, like, probation…something light.”

 Charlamagne told a similar story in his 2017 book, in which he wrote about the charge as a “turning point” in his life. “I rented a cabin at a place called Short Stay on Nearby Lake Moultrie and invited a whole gang of people to come over and party,” he wrote. “The night started off great—lots of drinking, smoking, dancing, and bullshitting. But at some point one of the girls passed out and when she woke up later that night, she claimed that some of the dudes at the party had sexually assaulted her. I wasn’t there at the time—I’d left to go get some weed—and when I finally heard about what had happened, the entire party had cleared out.”


“Apparently she’d gone into a dark room with some guys to have sex and when she’d started to protest, one of them said, ‘Relax, it’s Charlamagne.’” He then repeats the same story about going to the police station on behalf of his cousin, concluding, “The police did come and arrest me a few weeks later in connection to the assault. They took a couple of blood and hair samples but released me the same day. Eventually the criminal sexual charges were dropped.”


This month, however, The Blast reported that Reid was seeking legal representation and attempting to reopen her case. Reid’s mother, Joslyn, “says she and her daughter have already notified officials in Berkeley County about their intentions and requested information on the steps needed to go forward.” Joslyn also shared that she found the radio personality’s 2013 account of the alleged assault and subsequent charges “very hurtful.”

Sources “close to Reid” told The Blast that “she has also requested the DNA samples that Charlamagne provided during the investigation in 2001, claiming her family was never informed of the results from the blood work, and they believe the information in the samples could help their case.”

Berkeley County Solicitor Scarlett Wilson subsequently told The Blast that they are honoring Charlamagne’s plea deal and cannot reopen the case; “[Wilson] admits the technology has evolved since 2001, but says the State is required by law to honor the agreement they made with Charlamagne and the case cannot be ‘resurrected.’” Wilson explained that the plea deal was negotiated due to the “victim’s absence and lack of evidence available at the time.”

On July 20, Reid wrote a letter to the South Carolina Supreme Court’s disciplinary counsel, charging, “I am filing a claim against the prosecution because they failed to defend and promote justice.”

The letter begins, “On June 8, 2001, I was drugged and Rape by defendant Charlamagne [sic] at a party that he invited me and my friend to. I was only 15 years old at the time… They did not even try to hold him responsible for Raping me. Instead, the State allowed Charlamagne to plead guilty to Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor and agreed to dismiss the remaining charge which was Rape.”

“I was uncooperative at the time; traumatized on what happened to me.” Reid continues. “For many years, I have suffered because Charlamagne [sic] violated me. And, he continues to violate me on the radio, in his book and on social media. He jokes and laughs about drugging women and Raping them when they are incoherent.”

She concludes, “There have been some injustices with this case and we are fighting for it to be corrected.”

An online petition created by someone claiming to be Reid’s mother calls for Charlamagne to be fired from the Breakfast Club.  The petition reads, in part, “On June 8, 2001, I received a phone call that my daughter had been raped! I can’t express to you the fear and pain that I felt on that early morning… He took a plea to Contributing To The Delinquency Of A Minor with 3 years’ probation. Jessica didn’t testify because I felt she was already suffering enough at that time, and I didn’t want her hurt anymore. I wanted to protect her from it all! For 17 years Jessica has suffered and her family as well. The case must be reopened for justice to be served!”

“He must take full responsibility for drugging and raping Jessica when she was 15 years of age… No matter how much money, fame, and fortune one may have you are not exempt from justice.”

In early July, McKelvey’s alleged victim came forward in a video interview which has since been taken down (the interviewer, radio host Troi Torain aka “Star,” reportedly received a letter from Charlamagne’s legal team). Reid, who called in to share her story, says during the interview, “I want people to know who [McKelvey] really is… I just want closure in the whole situation. It’s been over 15 years now and I’m still dealing with it. I go to counseling for it, at one point I was on medication. It’s something that is with me to this day. And I really just want to put it behind me. And it’s hard to do that when you see this person on TV. He’s everywhere!”

Reid told The Four-One-One that she collapsed at the party in 2001 after finishing a drink that Charlamagne made her. She also said that she and Charlamagne had built a friendship by that point, and that he had picked her and her friend up that day. “I don’t want that man’s money, I don’t want nothing from him,” she insisted. “I just want people to know who he really is. He’s a liar.”

Reid relayed her story in even greater detail to Hollywood Life, recalling, “I don’t know how long I was laying there for, but then Charlamagne came in the room. He opened the door, came in, then closed the door. He got on that bed and started taking my clothes off. Meanwhile, I’m still at a state where I can’t move and I can’t do anything. I’m just lying there, but I was crying. I know he saw me crying. He knew I was crying and whimpering and he started talking to me. It was so gross and weird. He started talking to me saying, ‘Didn’t I tell you I was going to take care of you? You don’t have to worry about nothing, I got you.’ He took my clothes off and then he had sex with me, but that’s not all he did. He actually had oral sex with me, as well. And then he left the room and I’m just lying there in the room.” Reid also cited the 2013 interview in which Charlamagne denies the allegations as a catalyst for coming forward, saying, “I saw him try to discredit me and I believe assassinate my character. It’s an important part of my healing process to speak out.”

Charlamagne has reportedly lawyered up since Reid came forward, hiring attorneys Marty Singer and Michael Weinstein. In a statement, Weinstein told TMZ that, “More than seventeen years ago, Charlamagne was accused of a sexual assault. He never had sexual relations or any physical contact with the accuser and even provided DNA to prove it. At the time of these claims, Charlamagne cooperated fully with authorities, and after the investigation, this charge against him was dropped. Charlamagne has spoken about this many times over the years in public, including in his book. While Charlamagne has empathy for all sexual assault victims, he cannot take responsibility for a crime he did not commit.”

Charlamagne has recently had to answer for a separate incident, too. In a  2015 video resurfaced on social media, he describes putting the aphrodisiac Spanish Fly in a woman’s drink and having sex with her while she was “drunk as shit” and “wasn’t coherent.” The woman had no recollection of their sexual encounter the next morning, he said. A spokeswoman for the radio host said of the video, “All actions reflected upon during that conversation were consensual. Spanish Fly is not an illegal substance and at no point was it purchased or shared without consent.” She also emphasized that the incident happened in the late ‘90s, “20 years ago.”

On Monday, Charlamagne addressed the video himself on his podcast The Brilliant Idiots. “Back in 2015, I attempted to have a dialogue about rape culture with an emphasis on the role men play, and a clip was pulled from that conversation, and I can honestly say that I communicated that all wrong,” he offered. “I totally understand why y’all on my ass, and you have every right to be. I didn’t handle that conversation in the right way.”

“For the record,” he continued, “In 1997, I was having consensual sex with a young lady after we went to the sex store. Key word ‘we.’ And got Spanish fly, which is an aphrodisiac… we were both aware that we were gonna put this in a bottle of brandy.”

“I didn’t explain that situation well at all back in 2015, because the way social media took it was that I was confessing to drugging and having sex with an incoherent woman. That wasn’t the case,” he insisted. “We had consensual sex and then we both passed out, ‘cause we were both wasted.”

“I didn’t take advantage of anyone, and I want to apologize to anyone who was triggered by that story.”

The six-minute-long apology concluded, “I look forward to using my platform more responsibly to bring healing to victims and to just being a better ally.”

But that isn’t the only old interview that has McKelvey doing damage control. In a recently resurfaced Breakfast Club tape, Charlamagne claims, “It’s a lot of things that guys did especially when we were young that were rape that we just didn’t consider rape.”

To illustrate his point, he talks about an incident with his wife when they were still dating. “Me and my wife dated for a whole year, she would not give me no pussy,” he says. “Me and my wife hung out one Saturday night and she got sloppy drunk and passed out in my momma’s house and I got that pussy. She was fucking me back and all that but she was really drunk. I asked her yesterday, ‘Yo, did I rape you the first time we ever had sex?’ And she goes, ‘I mean in hindsight, yeah…’”On Tuesday’s edition of the Breakfast Club, Charlamagne called his wife up to address the old clip and new controversy. He contextualized the story by explaining that he and his wife were having a conversation inspired by a headline they had seen, asking if drunk sex was rape. “So my wife and I were discussing it, because the first time we had sex we were super young and super, super drunk,” he recalled. “So I asked her, did she consider that consensual sex based off the conversation that was happening online?” He insisted that the clip that had been circulating cut off before the conclusion of the conversation: “She told me yea, I can see how people would say that, but that’s not what happened with us, it’s not like I said no.”“Talk to the people, baby,” Charlamagne urged his wife while on the line. “Did I rape you the first time we had sex with each other?”

“You need to learn how to tell stories,” she responded. “You shouldn’t have used the word rape, first of all, cause the conversation that we were having is about rape culture.”

“That’s not what went down,” she continued. “We both know what happened, and I was not passed out, I was very coherent. Like enough for me to lift up my hips so you could take my panties off.”

“I should have never used the term rape so loosely,” Charlamagne agreed.

Charlamagne has an HBO interview series, The Gray Area With Charlamagne Tha God, premiering this year, and a new book slated for October. A separate petition calling for him to be fired from the Breakfast Club is just a few hundred supporters away from its 20,000 goal.

C.O.G.I.C. Superintendent Michael Eaddy Covered Up The Rape Of A Mentally Retarded Man Who Was Sodomized By A Gay Member Of His Church

According to the victim’s sister Camelita D. Gammons, her mentally disabled brother George, ran to her during a Sunday service with his pants still unfastened, crying uncontrollably, after being sodomized by a gay church member.

Camelita says she promptly brought the crime to the attention of  pastor Eaddy, thinking he would call the police, but instead, he immediately started trying to talk her out of pursuing legal recourse while the perpetrator was still present in the church.

“He pulled me in his office and told me to calm down, as if I was overreacting in some way” said Carmelita.

Pastor Eaddy never called the police.  He told Carmelita to “remain prayerful and leave it in God’s hands.”

Pastor Eaddy’s reaction (or lack there of) to George Gammons rape is drastically different than than it was in the early 90’s when his own wife Christine and daughter Eunice were abducted by several men near their former storefront.

“He was visibly shaken and called the police immediately” said one of his longtime members.

Pastor Eaddy even had the audacity to kick Carmelita and her disabled brother out of his church a short time after the incident, while the rapist remained a member.

Despite Pastor Eaddy’s righteous persona, those who know him describe him as an adulterer, womanizer and hypocrite, who’s been cheating on his wife with women at his church for years.

Carmelita says she once overheard Pastor Eaddy telling an associate minister that one of his female members by the name of Stephanie has a “big ass booty.”   His was very humble in his earlier years as a pastor. But when he aligned with former Chicago Mayor Dailey, his became very arrogant and compromised as a pastor.

“He sold his soul and compromised a lot of his dignity when he started caring water for Mayor Daily.  That nigga is as phony and slick as they come” said one of his longtime members.

Mathew Knowles Says Le’Andria Johnson Is Addicted To Crack Cocaine And In Need Of Serious Help

By: Freelance Reporter Tammy Washington, Posted July 13, 2018 at 10:19 am US/Central 

Knowles, a former manager of Johnson, who departed ways unceremoniously, chimed in after Le’Andria’s recent profanity laced rant, expressing her dislike for singer Marvin Winans and saying “F*** the church.”

“Her crack addiction has taken a turn for the worst. She’s appearing on videos, high as a kite, with a bunch of yes people around her, scared to speak up for her well being” said Knowles.

Le’Andria’s public excoriation against the church cost her a spot at the Essence Festival in New Orleans.

“You know what I’m tired of though? … I’m tired of being Le’Andria Johnson that y’all know of,” she says during a Facebook Live stream. “And Ima tell you like this: I could be on a Kirk Franklin level. I could be on a Mary Mary level. Yolanda Adams, Marvin Sapp, Fred Hammond. All the gospel greats … All the R&B. Beyoncé, Brandy. … If I played the game, I could really be on that level. I could, but I’m not ’bout playin’ no games, though” lamented Johnson.

Johnson went on to claim she’s “tired of this sh*t,” saying she refuses to stop cursing and/ or being herself for the sake of being a gospel superstar.

“Essence Festival is a couple of days away and if y’all feel like y’all don’t want me on it, y’all don’t want me on it.”

Festival organizers heard Johnson loud and clear, cancelling her appearance during a group performance honoring Dottie Peoples.

“I’m not gonna be there because the gospel part of the Essence Festival, apparently, me speaking my right — I have an amendment right … and that’s freedom of speech. So my freedom of speech caused me not to be at the gospel part of the Essence Festival. And I’m pretty sure they don’t want me to be there because I said ‘f— Christianity, f— the church,’ I said that. Maybe that’s why they don’t want me to go.”

Johnson also blasted fellow singer Marvin Winans.

“I don’t care whose spiritual father he is. He could have been mine, but no. He wanted to go past me like I was a peasant! Walked right past me like I was a peasant … and you ain’t even know! I’m a product of you! But it’s all good, though. Now you know.”

Festival organizers have not addressed Johnson’s cancelled appearance.

Will Eaddy, Son Of High Ranking C.O.G.I.C. Board Member Michael Eaddy, Has Been Identified As One Of R. Kelly’s Gay Lovers

By: Freelance Reporter Tammy Washington, Posted July 8, 2018 at 10:19 am US/Central 

Jerhonda Pace, a 24-year-old Chicago woman, has recently broke her silence surrounding a previous alleged underage sexual relationship with R&B superstar, R. Kelly.

Pace, now a mother of three, spoke with The-Four-One-One to recount her sexual past with Kelly, and others who were sexually involved with the singer.

According to Pace, Will Eaddy is one of Kelly’s gay lovers, who’s been sexually active with the embattled singer for years.

“Robert has bragged to me and others about how he turned Will out and made him go from his male groupie to his personal little bitch” said Pace.

“Rob has a way of making individuals like Will feel like they’re his best friend in the world, but dog them to us when they’re not around.  He’s as two-faced as they come” added Pace.

There are other public figures who have excoriated Will Eaddy for his clandestine gay lifestyle.

Tasha K, is a reputable social media star and pop culture aficionado, who is famous for her UnWine with Tasha K  YouTube channel.  She has earned massive popularity, to the tune of over 240 thousand subscribers.  Her massive audience admires her valor to address controversial issues, while sipping wine throughout her rants.

In one of Taska’s recent videos, she emphatically called out Will Eaddy as one of R. Kelly’s gay lovers.

Will Eaddy’s involvement with Kelly is particularly interesting given the fact that his former brother-in-law Steve Huff is married to Stephanie Edwards formerly known as r&b singer Sparkle, who just happen to be the aunt of Reshona Edwards-Landfair, the underage girl in the infamous sex tape that caused Kelly to be charged with 21 counts of child pornography back in 2002.

Even more disconcerting, Will’s father, Pastor Michael Eaddy, is just as hypocritical as his .son, embracing a known pedophile and sex cult leader as if he’s a hero of some kind. 

“It’s no wonder the Church of God In Christ organization is on a downward spiral” said Elder Earl Carter, formerly of the C.O.G.I.C. organization. 

As a maneuver to deflect attention from his gay lifestyle, Will often takes to social media, posting photos of him and Kelly and defending their relationship to those who dare question their his sexuality.  The following is a recent posting from Will’s Facebook page:

“Me and My Brother, R. Kelly, started 21 years ago as Basketball Competitors turned Friends, turned Best Friends and now turned Brothers! I’ve been SILENT only because I KNOW THE TRUTH! He has been silent because he doesn’t have to prove or say anything to salacious lies. The TRUTH will come out and you’ll see the true motives behind all of this very soon.

You have NO IDEA the things that I have been accused of and suffered because of my Love, Loyalty & Association to R. Kelly. Regardless of what anyone says or thinks, I’ve NEVER left his side or spoke ill of him.

I’ve even been accused personally of some of the most disgusting things, but anyone that even remotely knows me knows my Integrity, Reputation, Upbringing & Standing within the Community.

Needless to say, any logical thinking person reading that statement will instantly see through all the jargon and detect gay overtones that’s consistent with a homosexual relationship.

Despite Will’s malarkey, others close to Kelly knows beyond a reasonable doubt that Will Eaddy is an undercover homosexual.

Both Will and R. Kelly knows it’s all true, which is why you’ll never hear about them filing a law suit, primarily, because they know it opens up the flood gates for even more info about their gay relationship that would be divulged on public record, under oath, during lawyer depositions.

Pastor Larry L. Harris Gets Kicked Out Of Ben Washington Church In Irving, Texas For Having an affair With A Deacon’s Wife

By: Freelance Reporter Tammy Washington, Posted June 13, 2018 at 10:03 am US/Central 

IRVING, TEXAS–Pastor Larry L. Harris of the Ben Washington Baptist Church, in Irving, Texas, has been unanimously voted out as senior pastor after he was caught having a sexual relationship with a deacon’s wife.

The disgraced pastor was warned repeatedly by the deacon to stay away from the deacon’s wife, but continued on with the affair, even taking trips to Arizona with his married mistress.

After the whore mongering pastor was voted out, he tried to recruit members of the church to follow him elsewhere, but to no avail.  “I wouldn’t follow that low down nigga to the corner store” said a long time member.

Chicago Pastor, Bishop Michael Gardner Accused Of Having Sex With An Underage Girl

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

By: Tammy Washington, Posted January 28, 2018 at 7:18 am US/Central Email: thefouroneone@yahoo.com

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.


The friend came home, he found Cornell in bed banging  his wife.  The 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 friend 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 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.”

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.
