(FreshAsFrankie) August has proven to be a rough month for R&B singer Bobby Valentino. A few weeks back, Mr. “Slow Down” himself was caught on camera with a transgender escort who accused him of leaving without paying for her services. The woman, Reima Houston, claims she met Valentino at a concert, after which he agreed to help her with her own career. Once inside her apartment, she alleges that Valentino made sexual advances towards her, then she began recording.
Bobby V claims he’s being extorted and had no idea that Houston was an escort. His rep had this to say: “misrepresentation and Deception were maliciously used to target Valentino; during the encounter, Valentino was victimized and threatens by acts of extortion which continued after his departure was captured on video.” Look for this to get uglier by the day.
