Charlamagne Tha God’s Rape Accuser Reportedly Takes Case To State Supreme Court

The woman accusing Charlamagne Tha God (real name Lenard Larry McKelvey) of sexually assaulting her when she was 15-years-old has reportedly taken the case to the South Carolina Supreme Court.

According to The Blast, Jessica Reid is taking her complaints to the court’s disciplinary counsel and accusing the prosecution of improperly handling the criminal case. On Friday (July 20), Reid reportedly sent a letter to John S. Nichols, a deputy for the Supreme Court Office of Disciplinary Counsel in South Carolina.

In the letter, Reid wrote, “I am filing a claim against the prosecution because they failed to defend and promote justice. They did not even try to hold him responsible for Raping me. Instead, the State allowed McKelvey to pled guilty to Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor and agreed to dismiss the remaining charge which was Rape.”

She went on today she’s “filing a claim for negligence and misconduct of this case due to the prosecutions behavior to not defend the victim and allow justice to be served.”

WeWork Makes Retail Debut With First WeMrkt In NYC

The shop offers a small but curated array of items, including snacks, office supplies and WeWork-branded apparel. Honesty Market is WeWork’s snack and beverage self-serve kiosk, which is much more limited by comparison. The stores will also carry products created by select WeWork members.  In April, 20 WeWork member companies presented their products to a panel of judges. The panel selected winners based on “creativity, capability and impact,” according to the company. The 10 winners of that selection process can sell their products at the new WeMrkt.

Chris Brown’s new Bulletproof $350,000 Rezvani Tank

Chris Brown is taking some extreme precautionary measures to assure his safety on the road. According to TMZ, the Heartbreak On A Full Moonsinger just bought a brand new Rezvani Tank that cost him $350,000 dollars.

Looking like a tank out of a superhero movie, the khaki-colored, bulletproof vehicle is indeed street legal and features a plethora of crazy accessories, including smoke screens, thermal night vision capability, which is viewable on the display screen, electric door handles to shock any approaching intruders, and easy deployable defensive spike strips, among other things. In addition, the vehicle can also withstand multiple rounds from automatic weapons too. In other words, it’s pretty much a war tank that’s street legal.

And he was speaking from personal experience.
