Teairra Mari Attends Church Following DUI Arrest

Teairra Mari

Following her DUI arrest last week, Teairra Mari is getting her life back in order. The 23-year-old singer attended Sunday services at Oasis Church in Los Angeles, her first public outing since being charged with drunk driving in Beverly Hills. She released a statement over the weekend owning up to her mistake and apologizing to those she disappointed.

Rico Love, who signed Teairra to his Division1 label, spoke exclusively with Rap-Up.com about the incident. “I don’t condone drinking and driving. I don’t support it,” said the hitmaker. “I think it was a foolish decision on her part, but at the end of the day we all make mistakes. I had that big brother talk with her and I’m gonna continue to have that with her. But I love her and I still believe in her talent, so we just gonna keep it movin’ and give her our full support. But I do not condone that type of activity at all whatsoever.”

So far Rico and Teairra have recorded five songs together for her Division1 debut and he plans to drop her first single at the top of 2012. “She’s a superstar. If somebody is a star and they have that ‘it’ thing that cannot be taught, all you have to do is put a record with it,” he explained.

    @Sleazy, yeah, that’s wise. Blame it on some dumb ass theory, brought up to the surface to increase sales and stir up controversy rather than seeing the actual problem and fix it. Seriously, use some common sense. How many people actually know what the Illuminati is or means? Just a chain-reaction.

    shes beautiful and only human, everyone makes mistakes.

    @V, that’s the wrong attitude. Some mistakes are to be taken seriously. This is one of them. Yes, she’s only human. But how many human beings manage to lay off the alcohol when they have to drive? Those are just humans as well. She should learn from this and take this seriously. And I think she is. Just some of these comments are disturbing, cause its a lot more serious than some of you might think.

    @credits, what if she hurt someone in that accident? no big deal, right? people like you are what’s wrong with society.

    Lisa Reply:

    @Wake Up, I agree with you. Drinking under the influence is an unacceptable mistake. We’re wise enough to know better. How many lives were lost because of this? In this case, it is ‘just a DUI’, ’cause no one got hurt, but even if it only costs one life; that could be yours. Just don’t drink and drive. Plain and simple.

    This is where I get confused. I am not religious, so correct me if I’m wrong, but why does it seem like people always pray and go to church whenever they did something wrong? Why not make sure that you don’t make those mistakes and attend church on a regular?

    Not trying to pass judgement, but it seems like a lot of celebrities are contradicting themselves. They live a certain lifestyle, yet they believe in The Bible. Again, not passing judgement. It jus confuses me.

    @Lisa: maybe she went there to thank God for sparing her life and to thank Him for her not causing someone else to lose their life (lives). I despise people who drink & drive so I’m not taking up for her behavior at all. I truly hope she learns from this and that her career gets back on track.

    Along with Church, Teairra Mari should hang out at DrinkingAndDriving.Org so she can LEARN to not repeat her drunk driving.
