Men are scum is one argument that seems to never have an end. Cheating, has been a topic always up for a discussion. We all know that ‘in every rumor told, there’s an ounce of truth in it’. How true this is, would be left to you to decide. Celebrities and scandals, are never too far apart, just like the numbers “5 and 6”.
In the course of this week, 3 top celebrity superstars; R. Kelly, Usher, and just recently Kevin Hart, have been implicated in scandals fueling the scum talks: sexual abuse, herpes spreading and cheating.
R. Kelly: Is The Storm Over?
Sources say that R. Kelly, is no first time offender. The “I believe I can fly” crooner was a few days ago accused of keeping young ladies in different houses across Atlanta, and Chicago hostage. Where he allegedly has sexual escapades with them, records the act. He is said to con them by faking to help their music career, as he looks to mentor them to be superstars just like him, thereby trapping them. He then goes on to physically and mentally abuse them.
If this is true, then it’s quite a disappointment for the ace singer who once declared in a song that “the storm is over.” Parents of some of this ladies have come forward to make accusations of this, but in his defense, his lawyer Linda Mensch is quoted as saying
“we can only wonder why folks would persist in defaming a great artist who loves his fans, works 24/7, and takes care of all the people in his life. He works hard to become the best person and artist he can be. It is interesting that stories and tales debunked many years ago turn up when his goal is to stop the violence; put down guns; and embrace peace and live. I suppose that is the price of fame. Like all of us, Mr. Kelly deserves a personal life. Please respect that”
On the other hand, Usher Ray was accused on unlawfully giving a virus known as “Herpes” to his partner, who happened to be his one time hair stylist Grace Miguel whom he married in 2015. He had initially told her that he was clean after a “greenish discharge” was seen after one of their escapades, and even paid for her medicals when she was later diagnosed with herpes, complete vaginal sores, fevers and chills. That was when he deemed it appropriate to tell his doctor to inform her privately, there after offering her a $1.1m settlement (WOW! But we hope he knows that viruses don’t have a cure). Sources also have it that Usher was diagnosed with the STD as far back as 2010.
Kevin Hart: Hartless
Kevin Hart was recently in the news when his wife Eniko Parrish announced she was pregnant. Kevin who turned 38 on the 6th of July, had a birthday party upscale hot spot LIV which was an “All-Star Celebrity Birthday Bash”. Hart was later seen around the hours of 5am with a hottie getting cozy in his Lexus Sedan for about 20 minutes. Hart is said to have moved over to the passenger’s seat could be seen on the lookout for passer’s by. Hart was also accused to have been caught cheating by his ex-wife Torrei. Hart responded with an instagram post below as seen below.
Which leads to this question, “are men really scum”?
