R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan is under fire after she posted a story about gospel crooner Thomas ‘TC’ Clay, who died over the Oct. 15 weekend. Fans are calling her RIP post ‘self-absorbed’ and ‘shady’ — and you’ll see why when you read it. Check out Jazmine’s post and see the angry Twitter reactions right here!
Jazmine Sullivan, 29, wrote a eulogy on Facebook to Thomas “TC” Clay on Oct. 18, and it did not go over well. “I gave him my number accidentally thru a friend and he reached out consistently for a year,” Jazmine said of TC in her post, which she has since deleted. “I think I replied maybe 3 times but that never stopped him from writing me. He was DETERMINED lol.” Um, what?
It gets worse. “I remember him [dedicating a show to me]. He got on the mic and made up an entire 5 min song abt me,” Jazmine remembered. “But thru the embarrassment and flattery I felt, ‘WOOOW this guy is gifted’…every once in a while he’d write and I’d reply now outta respect. I didn’t want to say too much cuz I didn’t want to lead him on.”
Jazmine gained brownie points when she added kind sentiments and told fans how sorry she is that he has passed…but lost them again when she ended her post by including a picture of herself.
Fans were shocked at her insensitivity, and immediately took to Twitter to slam the Grammy-nominated musician. “This is the most self-absorbed RIP post I have ever seen. Sis needs to seek professional help,” @OckyJ83 tweeted. “And her own pic to end the post smh,” @Nizmond pointed out.
@Acquired_Taste said it best, though: “Jazmine Sullivan wanted to make sure he knew, just in case he was reading from Heaven, that she dont like him like that.”
