Charlemagne Tha God; Why Rape Reports Should Be Handled Cautiously

 

Lenard Larry McKelvey commonly known as Charlamagne Tha God is a radio and Tv personality who is known worldwide. He is popular as the co-host for Breakfast Club which is an internationally recognized radio show. He is also popular for his involvement in music related shows and specials and public appearances.

As he was growing up in South Carolina, McKelvey was arrested for some small offenses and also bore witness to some crimes. He later decided to enroll for night school and soon started his radio hosting career alongside Wendy Williams where Charlamagne Tha God quickly gained a mass following.

At the age of 22 in 2009, Charlmagne was detained following the issuance of a warrant of arrest for him. The charge was criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the second degree. The charges came after a 15 year old girl accused him of rape. Charlmagne Tha God cooperated with authorities and he pleaded guilty with a lesser charge. He was sentenced to three years’ probation and the case was dismissed in 2002.

Jessica Reid, Charlamagne’s accuser decided to bring up the case again almost a decade later. This came at a time when Charlmagne;s career was at its peak. Her reasons for bringing up the case again include the fact that she has not been able to get closure. Charlmagne was later cleared of the charges since his DNA was not present in the rape kit that was used to sentence him in 2001.

After Charlamagne’s case, it has come to the limelight that at least 2 to 10% of reported rape cases are fake. False rape claims are a major source of negative cultural effects. Studies have even been carried out to understand the psychology behind those who lie about being raped. It has been established that people who lie about rape have the habit about lying about other things in their life as well. Go To This Page to learn more.

Charlamagne Tha God And Kanye West’s Interview Was Cancelled!

 

Charlagmagne Tha God, is a radio personality whom appears on “The Breakfast Club”. He was scheduled to do an interview with the very well known, Kanye West, to discuss the mental health issues black men have and how to get through the hard times.

But unfortunately the “TimesTalk” was cancelled simply due to not wanting the conversation to go in a different direction. Charlamagne Tha God has anxiety and has been struggling with it since he was a child.

He has mentioned over and over how seeing a therapist as a black man can help heal them of any mental issues they may have due to many past traumas. Kanye West has also been diagnosed with Bi Polar Disorder at the age of only thirty nine. He also has made it very clear that he has struggles with this disorder and even seeks help through his family, friends, and doctors. Charlamagne also was admitted to an institution for having a “Breakdown.” Which in his words was not a break down but more of a break through.

Having mental disorders can be tiring and put a lot of stress onto yourself. People with anxiety deal with a lot of over thinking, they also tend to obtain bits and pieces of OCD and Depression as well. Charlamagne Tha God has talked about how it’s very important to seek help, and to obtain a therapist. The interview was canceled due to the respect of Kanye’s mental state as well as the timing for such a personal interview. Refer to This Article for more information.

The two hold the same argument on mental issues but different political views as Charlamagne says ” Kanye West does not represent all black people….I’m black and I don’t support Donald Trump in any way, shape or form.” Unfortunately there is no proof that this is also a reason for the interview being cancelled as every has a right to their own political beliefs. Both, Charlamagne Tha God and Kanye West just want people to understand the issues regarding mental health and how important it is to always seek help when you need it.
