Charlamagne Tha God has remained pretty tight-lipped about recent allegations in regards to his questionable past since a rape allegation against The Breakfast Club host has reemerged prior this month.
In spite of the fact that he is off-the-hook for supposedly assaulting a 15-year-old young lady in 2001, Charlamagne, born Lenard Larry McKelvey, utilized a six-minute clip The Brilliant Idiots podcast to address some debates that surfaced in light of the claim.
“I posted this today because I wanted to address some clips that have been floating around from the podcast, as well as VladTV, where I failed to have productive mature conversations around issues that demand respect,” McKelvey said. He’s alluding to one clip from the podcast where he discusses giving a lady Spanish Fly, making her “incoherent” before sex, and another from VladTV where he talks about hitting his High School girlfriend.
“Back in 2015, I attempted to have a dialogue about rape culture with an emphasis on the role men play…I can honestly say that I communicated that all wrong,” he said, referring to the former situation. “For the record, in 1997 I was having consensual sex with a young lady.”
McKelvey goes ahead to clear up the circumstance, saying he went to a sex shop with the lady to buy the Spanish fly and increment sexual drive, guaranteeing the whole experience was consensual. “I was looking at some comments from rape survivors who were triggered by that conversation, and I have to apologize to y’all because that was not my intention,” he said. “I’ve told people on this podcast numerous times to avoid any gray areas…If she is incoherent in any way, leave her alone. I want to stress that I didn’t take advantage of anyone, and I want to apologize to anyone who was triggered by that story.”
