teddy riley sues members of blackstreet

This is sad, but it’s a cautionary tale more than anything else. Once the checks stop coming in, the players start fighting for scraps.

Awhile back, I watched a CNBC show called “American Greed” where Riley admitted that he’d once been scammed out of his chain by some cats with a bag of fake money. But the “American Greed” segment wasn’t about how a couple of clowns scammed a grown azz man out of a gold roped chain. It was about how Riley had been duped yet again, this time by a man promising to end his foreclosure woes for a sizeable fee (isn’t that always the way?)

The point, though, is that common sense ain’t common, even among people who are abundantly talented. Also uncommon is the route back to some semblance of success. For sure, it’s not through antagonistic litigations. Better, probably, would be to create something new. Make magic happen. And magic ain’t happening in a courtroom.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!
