Funk Flex Is Calling Out Charlamagne Tha God For Sexual Assault Allegations He Once Faced & Old Controversial Tweets
Funk Flex is using his platform to call out Charlamagne Tha God for the previous sexual assault allegations he once faced 20 years ago. This past weekend Funk Flex, born Aston Taylor Jr., played audio clips while on air for Hot 97 of a mother accusing Charlamagne, born Lenard Larry McKelvey, of drugging and raping her then-teenage daughter Jessica Reid in 2001.
During the audio, the crying mother of the alleged victim says,
“[Charlamagne] alluded us to believe and trust in him. And then he turned around and violated my daughter by raping and drugging her and then he gets away with it.”
Funk Flex didn’t stop his anti-Charlamagne campaign there. The Radio DJ/music producer posted a few of Charlamagne’s controversial old tweets to his Instagram stories and called The Breakfast Club co-host a ‘nasty creep.’
He also shared an article that claims Charlamagne’s lawyer is the same attorney that worked with Bill Cosby. As previously reported, Bill Cosby was convicted of aggravated indecent assault in 2018 and is currently incarcerated.
According to reports, Charlamagne was arrested in 2001 on a charge of sexual misconduct with a minor after then 15-year-old Jessica Reid accused him of rape. The Blast previously reported that court document pertaining to the incident accused Charlamagne, who was 22 at the time, of
“willfully, unlawfully, and feloniously [engaging] in penile/vaginal intercourse with a fifteen-year-old female child.”
However, Charlamagne ultimately pled guilty to a much lesser charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and was sentenced to 3 years of probation, according to reports. The case was closed in 2002.
Charlamagne has always maintained his innocence and in 2018 Complex reported that official police documents were obtained which revealed Charlamagne’s DNA was not found anywhere on his alleged victim.
In addition to that, the police report revealed that Charlemagne cooperated with authorities without a warrant or attorney present and also voluntarily submitted blood and semen samples for analysis. Charlamagne spoke on the police report during a 2018 recording of The Breakfast Club. He said,
“Most importantly I’m praying for healing for the victim, you know. And I and I totally regret, you know, creating an environment that allowed for something like that to take place.”
