Charlamagne Tha God

Radio personality & rapper, Charlamagne Tha God has come out to clear the air on his rape statement currently making headlines.

Charlamagne drew first blood when an undated interview of him admitting to raping his now wife, Jessica Gadsden resurfaced on Twitter.

In a chat with co-hosts of iHeart Radio’s The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne claimed his statement was based on the conversation on consenual sex and the rape culture headlines last year and his opinion and his wife’s was miscommunicated. He also admitted to being “irresponsible” for using rape so loosely.

In the troubling interview published by Starr Reports, Charlamagne Tha God revealed that when he first met his wife, she refused his sexual advances but on one occasion, she was drunk and they had sex.

In his words:

I keep telling’ y’all. I’ve told y’all this over and over. It’s a lot of things guys did especially when we were young that were rape that we just didn’t consider rape. I’m married to my wife. Me and my wife dated for a whole year, she would not give me no pu**y,

Me and my wife hung out one Saturday night and she got sloppy drunk and passed out in my momma’s house and I got that pu**y. She was f***ing me back and all that but she was really drunk.

I asked her yesterday, ‘Yo, did I rape you the first time we ever had sex?’ And she goes, ‘I mean in hindsight, yeah…’

Addressing the backlash that came with the statement, Charlamagne said:

“That stems from a conversation I was having on my podcast about rape culture. It was a lot of op-eds and think pieces last year but I remember Teen Vogue, in particular, had a headline that said “Is Drunk Sex Considered Rape?”

So my wife and I were discussing it. Because the first time we had sex we were super young and super, super drunk. So I asked her did she consider that consensual sex based on the conversation that was happening online.

And the audio clip they got circulating online is edited and stops at me just saying, ‘Yeah.’ But she told me, ‘Yeah, I can see how people say that but that’s not what happened with us. It’s not like I said no.’”

His wife was also called on the show and she said, responding to Charlamagne’s question about whether he raped her on their first sex:

You need to learn how to tell stories. You shouldn’t have used the word rape, first of all, because the conversation we were having was about rape culture,” she pointed out. “The conversation we were having was [about how] you felt like it was okay for you to have sex with me while I was intoxicated. That’s a rape culture thing. That’s not rape.

So when you asked me that question, I was hesitant to answer you because you used the word rape. But I mean, that’s not what went down. Like we both know what happened. I was not passed out. I was very coherent, like enough for me to lift up my hips so you could take my panties off. That’s what happened. You know that’s what happened. And the next morning, we had sex. That’s what I’m saying, your memory’s [?] sh*t. You don’t remember anything. And [the] first kiss that night too.

    Messy. Entirely messy conversation. The difference between mouth diarrhea and elocution.

    But to digress: “Charlamagne drew first blood …” in a fight with who? You mean like he was self-inflicting or what?

      Lol there goes your comprehension skills. It’s figurative to illustrate that he started that conversation himself.

      Um…. I hate that I am doing this but:
      The article above reports that it was said in the course of an interview, and then provides a transcript of A PORTION of what I can only assume was the original discussion. It is unclear if he just started off screaming “screw #MeToo” – that would be first blood with…somebody, the panel, the public…
      If anything, the bit I’ve read sounds like he’s subjecting himself to a bit of introspection and wondering “back then…. was that rape?’ rather than, “I did that, and f*** me but that was NOT rape!”

      And now for some keyboard diarrhea:
      The phrase “draw first blood” is like: you’re minding your own g*****n business – or maybe you’re in a fight with someone or some entity even – and then the other party “draws first blood” by inflicting injury on you first (in the form of an insult or physical harm – usually of the bloody sort).
      It’s kind of like me making a simple comment, and you calling my general ability to comprehend an article into question.

      Obviously, I have too much time on my hands. Peace.

    Follow Gods plan, it is WISDOM and for your own GOOD.

    If God says no sex before marriage…He knows what He is talkimy about. If He says be of SOBER MIND …He knows what He is saying.
