Published

on

Trew Crews continues to take the high road even against 50 Cent.

In a deleted post 50 Cent questioned why Crews didn’t use his strength and retaliate against the attacker. “LOL, What the fuck is going on out here man?” Fif wrote in the caption. “Terry: l froze in fear,they would have had to take me to jail. get the strap.”

TMZ caught up with Crews after his flight and asked him about 50’s comments.

“Well, I love 50 Cent. I listen to his music while I’m working out,” Crews responded. “[…] I’ve proved that size doesn’t matter when it comes to sexual assault.”

During Crews’ testimony on Tuesday, California Senator Dianne Feinstein asked the actor why he didn’t use his size to fight off Venit. Crews said racial discrimination was a big factor.

“Senator, as a black man in America, you only have a few shots at success. You only have a few chances to make yourself a viable member of the community,” he explained. “I’m from Flint, Michigan; I have seen many, many young black men who were provoked into violence, and they were imprisoned. Or they were killed.”

The athlete-actor is using his platform to help other victims speak out regardless of gender.

“This past year we have seen powerful men in Hollywood and elsewhere finally held accountable for sexual assault,” he said in his opening statement. “We also saw the backlash survivors faced coming forward. I wanted these survivors to know that I believed them, I supported them, and that this happened to me too.”

Drake is suing the woman that made false pregnancy and rape allegations against him in 2017.

According to TMZ, in the suit, Layla Lace met Drake during last year’s Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester, England, where he claimed they had consensual sex.

He claimed that when he stopped responding to subsequent messages, she allegedly began threatening to leak their correspondence, publicly claimed he had impregnated her, accused him of rape, and demanded “millions of dollars” in exchange for silence. Drake is reportedly suing for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.

The suit claims Layla refused to take a paternity test and Layla and her lawyer went radio silent. Drake says the whole thing was a scam … “There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall.”

According to the lawsuit, Layla switched tactics and went to authorities in New York and alleged Drake had raped her during their one-night stand.

The Manchester police reportedly interviewed and cleared Drake of sexual assault accusations when the case was referred to them.
