Chingy Lost His Record Deal After Rumored Relationship With Transgender Model
God forgives, and apparently, so does Chingy. During his interview with VladTV, Chingy explained how his rumored relationship with transgender model, Sidney Star, nearly destroyed his career and played a vital role in him losing his record deal.
While many bashed Chingy on the alleged rumor, he was quick to lash back during his candid interview to those who were naïve enough to believe it in the first place.
“It goes to show you how many people wanted it to be true,” Chingy said. "That’s what it goes to show you. It goes to show you that that person who nobody knew had that much power to come out and say one negative thing about me and a whole mass of people just instantly took to it. And they didn’t have not one piece of evidence. Not one piece—a clue, nothing. They had nothing. They just had this person’s lie…It actually, it injured my career a little bit. I watched it happen. I lost a deal cause of that…It was said to me. Cause it was so much bad publicity around it…I’ve never been through a sabotage situation like that. And it was so fabricated and false.”
During the interview, he touched on how the two first met during a performance he had in Chicago with Ludacris.
“I remember that day we had that show,” he said. “When me and Ludacris had that show in Chicago. The promoter had some girl dancers on stage that were dressed in body paint. Just for promotion. They were promoting whatever he wanted them to promote. And one who I thought was a young lady that came up to me that wanted a picture—I just took the picture. I thought she was a fan. I thought it was a young lady who was a fan. She seemed pretty cool. I took the picture. And that was it. Two years after that, I see something come out of some bull crap about this transsexual person was in a relationship with me. I was just like everybody else. I didn’t have a clue at what this person was talking about.”
All in all, Chingy said he was able to overlook Sidney’s attempt to sabotage his career and accepted her public apology, noting that he wanted to remain good-hearted.-Carl Lamarre
