Homegirl did a recent interview and said that Robby was a drunk lush before City High and before they were even dating. OUCH. Here are some exerpts from her interview with She Is.
Claudette Ortiz: Initially I wasn't going to say anything... & I think that stemmed from fear because of the relationship I had with Robbie... it was an abusive one. He portrayed it like it was a "lovely romance" & it wasn't.
Claudette Ortiz: I met Robbie before the group (City High)... We started out as friends... we were both singers & knew some of the same people... My older sister and him were in the same grade so she knew him too... they were 2 grades above me... when we first started dating she said to me "are you sure you want to date him?" I asked her what she meant by that & she told me Robbie had a reputation of getting really drunk (since) back then & told me a story about him drinking excessively to the point where he'd passed out. I knew he drank but I never saw that side of it. He was my first boyfriend, we were young I was 16 & he was 18... we were nice teenagers. Everything seemed fine in the beginning but over time it became like a nightmare.
Claudette Ortiz: We were working on the album & it was rare for him not to be drunk... My management asked me not break up with him (he knows this) but it just became too difficult for me. Going on the road, recording... it was terrible. We were in Hit Factory & I remember him walking past me & he said "so this it, we over?" & I said "yes".
Lush perspective cannot be trusted!
)NOBODY REALLY WANTS TO DO "WE ARE THE WORLD"
"We Are The World" came out way in the 80's. People have changed so much since then that I know nobody really wants to do it. They just want to do it to be cool with Quincy Jones and to honor MJ. So, when Roger Friedman's showbiz411.com drops the bomb, I am not shocked. Lady Gaga said no, even though she was begged to be in it. Jay-Z. No. Beyonce. No. Alicia Keys. No. Alicia - NO? Not even Mrs. Beatz would do it.Justin Timberlake. Jennifer Lopez. Madonna. No. No. And No. There are a lot that are in it though, but those that are missing says a lot. I wonder why?
WELL, WHAT THE HELL WAS CBS THINKING?
They are trying to destroy rap. Wayne, Em and Drake actually performed the clean version of "Forever" and rehearsed with said version...YET...CBS basically muted it. This is what they said:
It was a rousing musical performance, but words were edited from the live telecast that didnt meet our broadcast standards. We have great respect for artists creative freedom, but there are certain things you cant say, or sing, on television. - CBS spokesman Chris Ender. SOLANGE DEFENDS BEYONCE
THE GRAMMYS ALSO DISSED THE JACKSON FAMILY!
Wow. The Grammys not only dissed Hip-Hop, they dissed Michael Jackson's whole family, except the kids.
CBS has been "banning" Janet since that fiasco called Nipplegate!
Gary Coleman's bailbondsman said Gary didn't even say thanks. Damn, Gary. What an ingrate.
IF you thought Nicki Minaj was on that song with The Game, you were wrong. Blame, DJ Drama.
Rumors are already swirling that Amber Rose is about to be a singer, with her weird inclusion in the new "We Are The World" remix.
According to Bossip, Matthew Knowles alleged mistress Alexsandra Wright has given birth to a baby girl and DNA tests say he's the pop.
Damn, the Grammys are crooked! Lalah Hathaway got robbed two times from the Grammys! Here is the crazy thing. These suckers have GPS so the singer is tracking her iPhone! They are gonna get you, thief! 5700 Hubbard St and closing in!

EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY
Kanye must have had a invisible cloak and pushed her Grammy! Tayor Swift broke her Gram!
Nickelodeon's Amanda Bynes turned to her Twitter to vent about a certain someone not receiving the awards they deserved at the Grammys and word is she may be talking about Drizzy. She says it's ok because "he won [her] heart!!!" She also says this mystery guy is "the most talented person ever!!!" and inspires her. Unfortunately she says she wont name him until "[they 're] an OFFICIAL couple and AGREED to tell people".
THE OTHER SIDEIllseed let you know about dude from City High's alcohol problems a few days ago. Dude basically says he turned to drugs after the chick from the group left him for the other guy. Well she, Claudette, has come out to tell her side of the story. She claims she left him because he was an abusive drunk and they weren't anything past teenage sweethearts. She says she hooked up with the other guy a year after they had broken up and they've been married for 9 and 1/2 years.Better days...or were they???
