I’m completely confused by this TMZ story about Phaedra and Drama. I’m just going to purple pen the parts that make no sense and then y’all can let me know what you think.
“Phaedra Parks is standing up for the rapper who got busted for threatening to blow up her office, and believes he was racially profiled by someone in her office building. Phaedra tells TMZ she considers Drama a good friend, and knew he was going to come by her office last week to drop off his new CD. The ‘Real Housewives‘ star says things started going south though when Drama went to the wrong floor.”
Phaedra was in Philadelphia at the Democratic National Convention for the week. If Drama is a good friend he would know she was out of town instead of demanding to see her. A good friend would also know where her office is located. Why would he show up with a book and an envelope if he were dropping off a CD? Why not mail it to her since she was out of town for the week. Why not drive by the house and stick it in her mailbox?
“According to Phaedra … Drama demanded to see her, and when the receptionist asked him to leave — because he wasn’t in Phaedra’s office — he refused, and she called security. Here’s where it really gets messy.”
Why aren’t there any quotes in this article if they talked to Phaedra? Why would Drama refuse to leave if he was not in the right office? Was he on something?
“We spoke to Drama’s mother, who says her son told the guard, “I have a bomb CD. It’s about to blow up.” She says the security guard followed up by asking if he had anything else about to blow up — and Drama replied, “I got that bomb ass CD in the car” … referring to a package full of CDs in his vehicle.”
If you have a CD wouldn’t you be holding it up when you mentioned it with such an unfortunate choice of vocabulary? The news stations report that he claimed to have a bomb strapped to his leg. Is the mother trying to say that he left the CD he was taking to give Phaedra, who he clearly believed was in the building, in his car?
“Moments later cops descended on the building and evacuated the place. Phaedra thinks whoever called the police just saw a guy in a white t-shirt and baggy pants with gold teeth … and assumed the worst. She admits Drama had a poor choice of words, but says that’s just the way he speaks — plus, he thought he was having an innocent convo about his music.”
For the record, the long white t-shirt is a sign of gang affiliation around these parts. They are banned apparel at many high schools. Drama refused to leave a law office that Phaedra has no affiliation with and caused enough of a disturbance that security was called. His conversation with the security guard raised enough of an issue that the police were called. Never in any of these scenarios did Drama say, “Hey, I am just dropping off a CD to a friend.” The police were concerned enough to call in a bomb squad and arrest Drama for terroristic threats.
So why is Phaedra defending him? Did she actually call in to TMZ? What is her angle now? Is she trying to keep him from talking about something? Does this make sense to you guys?
