His managers or whatever hired my dad to keep it quiet, so he could get a record deal.
According to court documents leaked to the web recently, the singer (real name: Marcus Romone Cooper) was a defendant in a child molestation case that took place in early 2006, and has been trying to keep it quiet ever since.
A woman named Laura Goldstein (@AGoldstein Girl), who claims to be Pleasure P’s attorney’s daughter, brought the scandal to light via a series of Twitter posts, photos of court documents, and admission from trial witnesses.
(Check out the documents right here) In the court documents, a man named Marcus Cooper was apparently restrained from unsupervised visits with a 3-year-old boy and 4-year-old girl after inappropriately touching them.
Goldstein claims the singer had hired her father to get the records “sealed” and to file an injunction against members of Pretty Ricky, barring them from discussing the case.
Singer Pleasure P, who disbanded from the successful group Pretty Ricky to pursue a solo career in 2007, is being rocked by rumors this week.
