Chingy Says Rumored Relationship With Transgender Model Sidney Starr Cost Him Record Deal
Many years ago, Chingy was accused of having relations with Sidney Starr, a transgender model. This week, Chingy addressed the rumors that surrounded his supposed relationship with Starr during an interview, in which he also discussed his perspective regarding people who believed the rumors to be true. "It goes to show you how many people wanted it to be true,” Chingy said. "That’s what it goes to show you. It goes to show you that that person who nobody knew had that much power to come out and say one negative thing about me and a whole mass of people just instantly took to it. And they didn’t have not one piece of evidence. Not one piece—a clue, nothing. They had nothing. They just had this person’s lie…It actually, it injured my career a little bit. I watched it happen. I lost a deal cause of that…It was said to me. Cause it was so much bad publicity around it…I’ve never been through a sabotage situation like that. And it was so fabricated and false."

Wu-Tang Killa Bees Member Cuts Penis Off In Apparent Suicide Attempt
On April 16, news surfaced that Wu-Tang Killa Bees member Andre Johnson, who also goes by Christ Bearer, suffered critical injuries after cutting off his penis and falling from a second story balcony in a North Hollywood, California apartment. Later in the week, after his condition was reportedly stable, RZA spoke on the incident. "Christ Bearer is a tragic story because it’s still the same situation: a guy we gave a chance to,” RZA said. “If I remember that deal back in the day, I remember they signed for, like, $150,000, a record deal from some young guys from Long Beach, Cali. He had a partner named Meko. I liked those guys. I liked what they stood for, young guys trying. I can’t wait to really hear the whole story. It’s sad that it’s Wu-Tang affiliated. It’s like dirty press in a way. I want to know what the fuck moved him to do those things."
