That stuck with me the most; the complicity; Aaliyah, who herself was baby, didn't want to marry this creep, and yet not only his flunky did nothing to stop it, but he was a willing participant. He's trash, just like his pedophile boss.
This was worse than I expected, there's so, so much to unpack; I knew about the marriage to Aaliyah, the settlements, even the sex tape (which thankfully, I've never seen), but I was shocked to know his history of predatory behavior was an open secret in Chicago, and his entourage played along instead of alerting the authorities. And the abuse...my goodness--just horrific. I felt so icky after the first episode, I wanted to take a shower.
It is important to note that dream hampton reached out to several major recording artists for this docuseries, (notably Jay-Z, Erykah Badu and Dave Chapelle to name a few)---John Legend was the only one who participated; the rest turned a blind eye by declining to come forward and call him out on his creepy behavior. It's as if he's immune to the MeToo movement.
Much love to the victims who courageously shared their stories; I hope they find healing and justice from this POS--which is over 25 years overdue. I hope he receives the worst form of Karma from which he never recovers
