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.

Family, Friends Celebrate Juice WRLD During Private Funeral

Nearly a week after his tragic and sudden death, family and close friends gathered near Chicago to celebrate the life of Juice WRLD. The 21-year-old recording artist was laid to rest during a private ceremony at the Holy Temple Cathedral Church of God in Harvey, Ill. on Friday (Dec. 13)

According to TMZ, attendees included numerous staff members and executive from Juice WRLD’s label home, Interscope Records. The funeral program featured a photo collage of the “Lucid Dreams” rapper, born Jarad Anthony Higgins, and a touching dedication from his mother, Carmella Wallace.

“My dear son Jarad, God trusted me to raise you and I poured all I had into you as the Lord guided me. We were inseparable and even though you left home early, we were always in each other’s hearts and always had a special bond,” she wrote. “We were always overjoyed to see each other, and you still called me ‘mommy’ as you hugged and kiss me when you saw me. Your love was pure and innocent, and your heart was genuine. You truly cared about people and wanted to make the world a better place.”

“I am going to miss you dearly,” Wallace added in closing. “Rest in peace my dear one; mommy loves you.”

After receiving a tip about drugs and weapons being on the plane, federal authorities began searching passenger bags which allegedly prompted Juice WRLD to swallow multiple Percocets in an attempt to hide the pills from FBI agents.

His exact cause of death has yet to be determined.

Tom Joyner Retires From Radio Show After 25 Years On Air

Tom Joyner signed off from his nationally syndicated radio show for a final time on Friday (Dec. 13). For the last 25 years, The Tom Joyner Morning Show has entertained and informed listeners with a mixture of music, commentary, comedians, celebrity interviews and more.

Joyner’s intention with his show has been to empower and entertain, he said in an interview with CBS News. “Our thing has always been to empower people. But to empower, we have to first entertain. If I've got you laughing, I've got you listening.”

The Tom Joyner Morning Show, which debuted in 1994, is the top rated urban radio program in the nation, airing in 105 markets nationwide, with eight million daily listeners. Joyner, who became the first black radio personality to land a syndicated radio show, credits his success with “super-serving” the black community.

“Don't worry about crossover,” said Joyner. “Just super serve, super serve, super serve. Anything that affects African Americans, that's what you do. Just worry about connecting to people and their needs.”

A native of Tuskegee, Ala., and graduate of Tuskegee University, Joyner got his start in college radio. Having grown up in a town centered in the civil rights movement, Joyner didn't hesitate to protest the lack of black artists receiving radio play, and doing so landed him a job.

“So I'm out there protesting the fact our radio station in this all-black town didn't play any black music,” he recalled. “And this guy who owned the radio station, which was inside a Ford dealership, came out and said, 'I don't need this. I'm trying to really sell some cars.' Tell you what, it's a sun up, sun down station, every Saturday, I'll let one of you play all the Aretha and The Temptations that you want.”

After college, Joyner jumped from different radio stations around the South and Midwest, one of which was owned by Ebony and Jet magazine owner, John H. Johnson. In the mid-80s, Joyner held down jobs in Chicago and Dallas, which earned him the nickname “Fly Jock.”

Joyner made $14 million a year at the height of his radio career, though his salary began to drop. “It got to a point where they would – 'All right, we're gonna cut your salary in half.' 'Okay.' 'And then in half.' 'Okay.' And then in half two years ago,” Joyner said. “Because my salary was based on my results, and not only was I losing affiliates but radio industry as a whole was losing traction.”

When asked if he would have stayed in radio for a higher paycheck he replied with a laugh, "Heck yeah. Shoot, my goal was to die on the radio. Have my funeral on the radio.”
