**UPDATE: PLEASURE P HAS RELEASED A STATEMENT DENYING THIS RUMOR!**
Wow, just when you thought 2009 wasn’t going to get any crazier!!
An explosive story just broke out about up and coming R&B singer and former Pretty Ricky member Pleasure P and it’s not looking too good. It’s quite disturbing if you ask us!
Pleasure P. (real name: Marcus Cooper) has been outed as a repeat child molestor and the victims were 4 years old and 3 years old. And to make matters worse, they were his own niece and nephew! Rumors are circulating that this is the reason why he left Pretty Ricky back in 2007. In fact, he was allegedly KICKED OUT of the group but the label and management decided it’d be best to tell the world that he just wanted to go solo.
But why is this story coming out all of a sudden? Well, because home boy couldn’t pay his bills apparently! The law firm that represented Mr. Cooper is pissed because they have not been paid. Their daughter hit up a blogger on Twitter with all of the dirty, filthy, disgusting details!
My dad was being paid to cover it up but they owe my dad a lot of money and don’t want to pay him. I first overheard my dad say that it was someone famous but I found out who he was talking about.
This guy Pleasure P got kicked out of a group bc he was hiding that he was a child molester. his managers or whatever hired my dad to keep it quiet so he could get a record deal
The guy Pleasure P molested a 4 yr old child and was about to molest another one when police came and saved the child. Now, the truth is out they’re threatening my family nd telling my dad he’s going to get sued. But they can’t because its a crime.
FreddyO says he spoke with someone who confirmed it to him as well:
I was lost for words on this whole situation, until I spoke with someone who I cannot name, that is very very very close to Pleasure P, they told me: “Yes all this Sh-t is true, not only that but one of the peps he touched was his on fam …. NEPHEW….. thats not right” He then said: “I knew all this would come out in time, their is so much yall dont know but all these allegations are completely true.”
The person also told me that Pretty Ricky has never really spoke about why Pleasure left the group…
Spectacular also confirmed that P was a Molestor…
And someone sent in a very detailed letter to Necole Bitchie, and even though the dates are a bit off, the facts are all 100% correct!
I know you heard a lot about the whole “Pretty Rickey/Pleasure P” child molestation drama. Well I am VERY close to the situation and BOTH parties and I want you to understand that it is ALL true. Not speculation or anything. He was convicted. The problem lies in Blue Star Entertainment, the label that housed and groomed Pretty Ricky. They paid a substantial amount of money to have these documents sealed back in 2006. The label wanted to keep the aura of Pleasure in the group and figured since he was signed basically for life that they would recoup the cost. Well, this was not the case as the other members of Pretty Ricky started separating themselves from Marcus “Pleasure P” Cooper as time went on. This eventually lead to them riding in separate cars to shows, arguing amongst themselves to them even jumping him (Pleasure P) at one point. This lead to him leaving the group but he is still very much contracted to Blue Stars Entertainment for 5 albums.
Here’s what happened: When he was 16 going on 17, he was left alone with his niece and nephew with whom he touched and penetrated with fingers on several occasions. His aunt noticed his niece complaining of her genital area hurting, when asked what happened she replied “Uncle Marcus keeps touching me and he hurt me”. Of course Marcus (Pleasure P) denied the allegations but the doctor found signs that she had vaginal damage and tearing. Charges were then pursued by the State of Florida.
The incident happened in 2004 going into 2005. He served like 8 months, rehab and community service by time the trial came up. Marcus accepted a plea with the State of Florida and Joseph Smith who is the care giver of the niece and nephew which Marcus “Pleasure P” Cooper molested. These are not the only papers filed against him. These are the first of 3. As part of the plea agreement Marcus plead guilty and paid an “undisclosed amount” to remain free and have the records “sealed” and on the family level for them to remain quiet and not to speak publicly about it. The “sealed document” means nothing other than “we won’t tell anyone it’s here..but if they find it they can have it” basically. The problem also is that Attorney Goldstein (Who represented Marcus “Pleasure P” Cooper in the trial) has a daughter named Laura Goldstein who is also her fathers assistant. Marcus Cooper never completed his payments after the hearing to his attorney.
Attorney Goldstein tried to reach out to Marcus only to be told “Don’t call this phone no more” on several occasions. This caused frustration on Attorney Goldstein’s ends due to the time & effort he put into this “special plea bargain” he negotiated that I don’t think ANY attorney could have done. After Attorney Goldstein threatened to sue Marcus Cooper the “alleged threats” became real from Coopers end. I have personally heard these messages and I know who they are from and they are very disturbing. Especially to an attorney who can use them against you.
Laura Goldstein felt her father was not doing enough to stop the threats as they began to increase so she took to twitter (her twitter is @AGoldsteinGirl) to “expose” Marcus “Pleasure P” Cooper in a way that was sure to make him “go away”. Now all the documents from the initial hearing have been released and there is plenty more evidence out there I assure you. Everyone involved including Spectacular (Pretty Ricky) have commented via twitter on the documents in shock thinking they would never get out.
The next problem is whether Laura Goldsteins father will have to pay the ultimate price of getting disbarred for breaking Attorney Client Privilege or will it be deemed public domain? I don’t know, but I do know both parties and its about to get ugly. I will keep you up to speed if anything else jumps off.
