Some clown(for lack of a better word) made a video recording of her at a gas station here in Atlanta, exposing her in one of her low moments. According to reports, she has a crack addiction and suffers from mental illness. And shame on everyone who shared it to get a “like”. The callousness in our people at times is baffling.
In the video, she is seen talking to the man recording and she tells him she wanted some “crack”. The “brotha”(dubbed a “male friend” in one article), added further insult to injury and said to Maia, “pump my gas” in pimp-like fashion, disparaging her further while continuing to record and mock her broken state. How the f*ck is addiction and mental illness funny? Did slavery, Jim Crow, lack of opportunity, lack of education, lack of nurturing and poverty make us into insensitive human beings?
"So I just hope that when I do, it'll be a departure."Usher and Raymond married in 2007.
Their 2009 divorce sparked a bitter custody battle for their sons Usher Raymond V, aged six, and Naviyd, five, that lasted three years.
Do they not know that statistics show almost forty percent of African Americans have this disease and that almost fifty percent of black women have it? Do they not realize that if these numbers are true(and apparently they are), that when they post these articles and jokes on their page, they are shaming and making fun not just of you, but also some of their own friends and family members who are also suffering?
These millions of sufferers didn’t get a million dollar check when it was given to them, they simply had to keep it moving and figure out how to live with it. And although not the same circumstance, I am reminded that just a week or two ago our people did the same with the Maia Campbell situation.
In August 2012, the 35-year-old performer was awarded primary care of the children after a ruling by a Georgia judge.
Although Usher has always kept tight-lipped about his new romance, rumours have been circulating for years that Miguel left her husband for the star, who had already finalised his divorce from Raymond when they started dating.
"It could be the fact that I've spent the last year at everybody's damn wedding, like I've become damn near the wedding singer, know what I mean?
It’s all about the “comments”, “likes” and the “check” one can potentially get from a story.
Do the sharers of this news not realize that 1 in 6 Americans have herpes and that anyone can have it and not know because they are asymptomatic?
Too many black folk in particular find this situation joke worthy.
I apologize that our community finds humor in disease and in stories that hurt others.
"His revelation comes just weeks after he expressed his hopes that his ex-wife will drop his last name once he remarries."I'll marry again.
