Bobby V and Transgender Accuser to Face Off in Court

Bobby V and Transgender Accuser to Face Off in Court
(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.

Former FBI Director James Comey to Lead Lecture Series at Howard University

Former FBI Director James Comey to Lead Lecture Series at Howard University
(FreshAsFrankie) Comey will be speaking at their 2017 convocation in September, which will kick off the school year. Along with speaking at the convocation, Comey was appointed the 2017-2018 Gwendolyn S. and Colbert King Endowed Chair in Public Policy for the University, which means he will be leading and conducting “five lectures and feature speakers that will touch on several topics.” According to Howard University, the series is “designed to foster fruitful discussion and spur meaningful interaction.”

For the position, Comey would be paid $100,000 for his work. However, he has made it clear that he would be donating the entire amount he would be compensated to a Howard scholarship fund. Comey issued a statement on being the King Chair for 2017 going into 2018, saying, “I am honored to hold the King Chair this school year. Howard has a longstanding history of being a vibrant academic community and the perfect place to have rich dialogue on many of the most pressing issues we face today. I look forward to contributing to this remarkable institution and engaging students and faculty alike.”
