The Internet has been abuzz with rumors that Pleasure P was convicted of child molestation in 2006. The former Pretty Ricky member has issued a statement via his attorney, calling the accusations “disgusting and vile.”
“All of the recent rumors and accusations that are being circulated about me are 100% false. They are disgusting and vile; and they are being spread by individuals with their own sick agendas. The purported documents that are also being circulated are forgeries. I have never met or known anyone by the name of ‘AGoldstein’ or Laura Goldstein or Ashley Goldstein, which I believe are fictitious names. I have never been represented by an attorney named Goldstein. For someone to go to such depths to assassinate my character and slander my good name is truly criminal. My attorneys are investigating this matter and will take all necessary and appropriate action to protect my name and reputation.”
The R&B singer, born Marcus Cooper, was nominated in three categories at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, including Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, Best R&B Song, and Best Contemporary R&B Album.
