Lelee talked to Jamie Foster about her life – before, during, and after SWV – where she was very open with her past struggles. Until now, no one really knew anything about her, especially since ex-members Coko and Taj are still in the spotlight one way or another these days.
Lelee discussed everything from having her first child at 15, to the industry screwing her over, and to her being so homeless to the point where she had to stay in gay clubs. Rumors have speculated that Lelee was infact, a lesbian – though she said in the interview she was seeing somebody (male or female – that I don’t know).
But despite all that, it’s pretty sad if RCA only gave the woman $25,000 when SWV dismantled, which ended up going towards her mother’s funeral and burial. As popular as these girls were? RCA could do better than that!
And if you want to show Lelee some love, hit up her myspace that she visits frequently. Here’s a snippet of her latest blog entry:
I realize there are so many people who go through the same shit everyday,Entertainers are not exempt. My story of LIFE is so true and no book told me what to say or how to say it.There are people at this very moment in the media who are making jokes of my “TRUTH” and i expected that. Im so happy that i am at a point in my life where i dont give a shit what people think of me. They dont define who I am by no means.I realize being me is what makes me happy and I chose not to live for people. The only people that I feel i owe anything to is the FANS. The ones who have followed me thru the years,and supported the whole SWV movement, but never got to know Lelee as an individual.Take me or leave me baby. That was my life and I am forever grateful to all that are inspired by my story because it is the truth.And to all that have shared the struggle with me and millions of other people,be encouraged because when obstacles come your way and you’re going THROUGH…… You’re already half way there.On the other side there is an ending which means your job is done.I love you all and be blessed.
AND FOR THE RECORD,”Lelee is notttttttttt homeless. I sleep very well at night(smile).
