V Exclusive: Escort @CandyDeepthroat Reveals Why She Went At Matt Barnes On Twitter

VIBE caught up with @CandyDeepThroat, the woman claiming to be the reason why Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan haven’t postponed their wedding. However, according to Candy (who doesn’t want her real name revealed), you shouldn't get her confused with being a Kat Stacks wannabe. She says sex is not just her game it’s her business. Here, she breaks down why she put Matt on blast and how her special skill keeps pro athletes and rappers coming back. ⎯Starrene Rhett

VIBE: What made you tweet about sleeping with Matt Barnes?

Candy: I received some really rude text messages and I asked him to stop in the text messages and it didn’t stop so I went on Twitter and said if a certain somebody doesn’t stop harassing me, that I was gonna put his photos up or something like that and he kept threatening me afterward so that’s why I put that out there. The thing that makes me mad is people are questioning the validity of it and it’s like Matt himself has never denied it. He called me crazy, he called me stupid, he called me a bitch, he even called me ugly but he never denied anything. He just said that people are crazy and not to believe it. But never did he say anything to refute what I was saying. And I said this in the first tweet that was captured online, “If I’m lying, simply say that I’m lying,” and he never said that I was lying so I don’t feel I need to get into details over it. Honestly, I wasn’t trying to do is expose him. I felt offended through the text messages. My phone was getting harassed by someone at his house; you figure out who that would be.

Publicist: I want to interject here. When this whole thing started, he kind of brought this on himself because she didn’t expose him like the other girls in the industry that have been in similar situations and exposing guys, but this isn’t what she was doing.

Candy: Yeah, he did that by taking it to Twitter and saying the shit he was saying like, nobody would have even listened to me. Like my followers were like—not to say who the hell am I, but I don’t play for the Lakers, I’m not a basketball player, I just suck dick very well. He pretty much blew it up himself by arguing with me on Twitter. I told him to stop texting me, I told him to leave me alone and he started acting like a straight moron, cursing me out calling me a bitch. And I know she’s mad and she’s upset but OK, perhaps you might not want to save my number as Candy in your phone. It’s like don’t be upset with me and calling me telling me to call your wife and say that it didn’t happen. I’m not lying for you because they shouldn’t even have my number. I’m not telling her shit. If she don’t believe you I’m not lying for you.

A lot of these men have girlfriends or wives so why do they still reach out to you?

You do know my name right? [Laughs] A lot of girls can’t handle it. A lot of girls are not orally inclined but that’s my specialty. I enjoy it It’s so funny because a guy that plays for the Redskins hit me up the other day claiming that he was in a relationship but he was like, “I hope your name is worth the risk.” The name does it to them.

It seems like in a lot of these cases the girlfriend or the wife knows what’s up, though.

You know, Gloria is real funny to me because—I’m a little irritated with her because it’s like why harass me now? You go on the basketball wives and claim that everything is wonderful and I’m like, “You know better than that.” I don’t understand the canard that she’s living. I don’t understand why she’s supporting it like why she’s sending that message out like it’s happy and honky dory. Like, you know exactly what’s going on, just be a woman and say you don’t give a damn that you’re still gonna stay. I think it affects her but she likes to walk around and pretend with this big smile on her face. Any female could empathize with the fact that their man is never home but the fact that you think he’s not with anyone else when he’s gone, girl please! If Kobe cheats, with his fine ass wife then everybody cheats. And people are like Gloria looks better than me. I don’t give a damn, I’m pretty sure he didn’t call me for my looks. When my face is in your crotch I’m sure you’re not looking at my lovely smile. And that’s ultimately what it is but you’re gonna pretend that it’s not that, that nothing’s going on and that I’m a groupie? How am I a groupie? I haven’t been to a Lakers game in forever. I don’t go to parties or clubs so please tell me that I saw Matt somewhere else other than a hotel room. Please tell me that I went to some club and tried to talk to him when it’s not that serious, he’s really not even my type. He’s cute. Don’t get me wrong; I have a thing for tall guys but a groupie? I could see if he was Dwight Howard, then perhaps I’d be less offended at the groupie statement. You just can’t put a whole lot past men and for her to just have the balls to say that to me—I understand that’s your man and stuff but don’t be stupid. If me and Matt did something, please believe I’m not the first person and I’m not the last.

Have you ever been cursed out by other wives or girlfriends?

Yes. I’ve had to change my number several times and I was thinking about doing this because I was getting harassed by someone that Matt knows.

Ebro Calls Out Kodak Black For Sexual Assault During Interview

The Internet's latest victim of unwarranted hate is Ebro Darden, host of Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning. currently awaiting trialThe Internet is split on Darden's attempt to try to discuss Kodak Black's sexual assault allegations. He is for charges of criminal sexual conduct from a sexual assault indictment in 2017.

During the rapper's visit to the radio show on Wednesday (Dec. 12), everything seemed fine and dandy. However, around 15-minutes in, Ebro brought up the Floridian's current sexual assault case.

“Look man, at this point, it’s a pleasure to meet you man,” Ebro says near the 15-minute mark of the 17-minute interview. “You know, looking at all your cases and everything you’ve been through, and I know the recent one right now is very sensitive. Respect to everybody involved in that case, we can’t get into details today… We take sexual assault here serious. We can’t get into details, but we hope to have you back, so that we can have a deeper conversation about that. It’s a serious topic, we’re hearing these stories a lot."

Peter Rosenberg swiftly tries to deflect from the conversation by asking Kodak if the moon landing of 1969 was a conspiracy. However, Ebro brings up the musician's clear anxiety over the fact that he brought up the case.

"I feel like sometimes, when n***as like me are going through sh*t, y'all be entertained," says Kodak as he squirms in his chair. "Like, change the subject... talk about something else." Ebro then brings up that they tried to change the subject, and if there's nothing left to discuss, the interview could be over. At that point, Kodak gets up from the mic and walks away.

On Twitter after the interview began to gain virality, Ebro wrote that he did not discuss any specifics about the case, and that he was just trying to have a "balanced" conversation. While many members of the Twittersphere are praising Ebro for attempting to have a conversation about the elephant in the room, others are calling him out for "baiting" and bringing up something that "he shouldn't have brought up."

What are your thoughts?

I was tryna have a balanced convo with Kodak Black & not ignore the serious allegations against him but also not ask specifics to make his situation worse... and he wanna get an attitude with me?? Nah....

Sir Elton John Covers Khalid's "Young Dumb And Broke"

Khalid has had the opportunity to cover songs from some legendary musicians like Tracy Chapman. Now, the tables have turned. Sir Elton John recently covered the Texan’s 2017 hit “Young Dumb & Broke.”

The “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” musician reworked Khalid’s American Teen track for the Spotify Singles series. In a statement, he praised the young musician’s growth, and he called the song “one of [his] favorites.” Khalid can be heard at the end of the Elton version singing along.

“I discovered Khalid’s music a few years ago, and have been a fan ever since,” Sir Elton wrote. “We finally met when I played his home town of El Paso last year. It’s a thrill to be a small part of any new artist’s journey, and it’s been wonderful to see his star continue to rise and rise. ‘Young Dumb & Broke’ is a fabulous song, one of my favorites, and I’m really pleased that he liked my cover enough to contribute vocals.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Sir Elton has praised members of the newer generation of music. His song “Rocket Man” is sampled in Young Thug’s On The Rvn EP. In the past, he’s sung Thugger’s praises, namely in a 2015 interview with Noisey, where he noted he enjoyed how he pushed the boundaries of hip-hop.

'Sesame Street' Praised For The Inclusion Of Homeless Character

Sesame Street continues its crusade to include statement-making characters on their block. This time around, families will be introduced to Lily, the show’s first homeless character.

According to USA Today, Lily- an adorable hot pink, red haired puppet- was first introduced to the show in 2011, but in new online clips, Lily opens up about being homeless and staying with friends.

"Now we don't have our own place to live, and sometimes I wonder if we'll ever have our own home," she says to Elmo in one clip. In her initial appearances on the show, Lily discusses her family’s food insecurities, meaning they didn’t have much to eat.

“We know children experiencing homelessness are often caught up in a devastating cycle of trauma – the lack of affordable housing, poverty, domestic violence, or other trauma that caused them to lose their home, the trauma of actually losing their home, and the daily trauma of the uncertainty and insecurity of being homeless,” said Sherrie Westin, President of Global Impact and Philanthropy at Sesame Workshop.

“We want to help disrupt that cycle by comforting children, empowering them, and giving them hope for the future," she continues. "We want them to know that they are not alone and home is more than a house or an apartment – home is wherever the love lives.”

In recent years, Sesame Street has introduced a slew of ground-breaking new characters, including Julia, a puppet with autism, and Alex, a character whose father is incarcerated.
