Tyrese Responds To “Baby Boy” Gay Allegations

Published

on

Tyrese released a lengthy video post on Tuesday slamming comedian Spanky Hayes for alleging that the r&b singer engaged in sexual acts with a higher up from the 2001 film, Baby Boy.

During a recent airing of the Spanky Hayes Show, the comedian revealed that he too went out for the role for Joseph Summers (aka Jody), but Tyrese was victorious because the TGT singer agreed to perform sexual favors for somebody (possibly director, John Singleton) casting for the film.

Tyrese fired back at the comedian in an eight minute video explaining how incredibly false the information was. He delivered “factual facts” and even confirmed that the role was originally meant for Tupac.

“There’s some dumb a$$ people in the world … What man wakes up and says ‘today, I want to end my career … Today I want to commit career suicide,'” he said.

“First of all you claim that there was an audition with thirty men, that’s a lot of dudes fighting for one role. Let me tell you something you don’t know, the role for Baby Boy was written for Tupac.”

“I did audition, but it wasn’t an audition that you claim I did. The audition I did was me who already had the role for Baby Boy, showing for an audition to find the woman who ended up playing my mother, and we discovered my favorite woman in the whole world, Taraji P. Henson.”

He continued, “You’re a comedian, but you ain’t funny … I want to just tell you something homie. It’s over. You didn’t have a career first, but it definitely just ended.”

Tyrese also defended Morris Chestnut who Hayes also eluded to engaging in physical acts with other men.

Haye’s responded back by simply posting the video of Tyrese on Twitter with the hashtags. #4pac and #lol.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
