The rapper Coolio has been forced to deny allegations that he is transphobic after a Trans-woman accused him of rejecting her advances at a hotel.
His story below…
Coolio is said to have attended a wild swinger’s party on March 19th of this year and met an adult entertainer named Lena Kelly.
Shortly after, Lena says the rapper invited her to join him at a Naughty Boy Nature concert at the Luxor Hotel.
Once there, she told the ‘Gangster’s Paradise’ performer that she was biologically male but identified as a woman and was startled when he walked away without saying a word.
He literally, without even saying a word, went over to his boys, had a little huddle and one of his boys comes back to me and goes, ‘Coolio is not trying to have that image. He says you got to go.’
Hurt, confused and horrified, Lena was then forced to reach deep into her pockets to find the cash to pay for her own ride home!
I was upset. I was crying. He didn’t even give me a cab home.
Coolio’s rep denied this.
That never happened and [Coolio] knows lots of porn stars and spoken out numerous of times that he has no problems with LGBT community and has friends and family that’s LGBT. Sadly this person has come forward nine months later from this alleged incident to demean his character.
One group of people who are struggling to sympathise with Kelly’s story? The Twitter community.
She’s trying to spin this so that Coolio looks like he’s in the wrong but all I see is she’s trying to get her 15 minutes. From what I read someone in Coolio’s camp googled her (porn star) and found she was trans… can’t fault him for protecting his Brand.
