G. Dep's Wife Answers All [Pg. 4]

Understandable. But theoretically if you hadn’t had hung up and he was calling for consultance, what do you think you would’ve told him?
To talk to a priest. That’s all. I don’t know what state [he was in]… from that phone call I thought it was like any other phone call I get from him.

Feel you. Does he feel like he made the right decision?
I know the answer but I can’t answer that. I wish I could, because I want to [Pause]. That’s like a lawyer thing. Let’s just say when I speak to Trevell on the phone he sounds good.

Have you been in contact with the victim’s family?

Have they tried to reach out?
No. But I understand that they lost somebody. I haven’t reached out because we need to be sure.

You think there’s a possibility that the drugs led him to go to the police and confess to someone else’s mistake?
That’s what I don’t know.

But it’s a possibility?
It could be.

Have you asked?
No, I didn’t ask. I’m depending on the lawyer.

Would you be surprised if he were found guilty?
Yeah. It’s not him. Trevell doesn’t even smack his sons for doing something wrong.

You guys have two boys right?
We have twins. It’s funny because Trevell always said that I would have his son. One is named after his father, Trevell and the other is named Tyler.

How are they handling everything, do they know exactly what happened?
Because of the neighborhood we live in, I had to tell them. Before this happened people would come up to me and be like ‘Oh you know Trevell has a problem’ and be all in my face. So I didn’t want the boys to go out and hear it from someone else.

Their father always takes them to get a haircut. I’ve never been. So I thought it would help to bring them to the barber they know. But after, we went to get a videogame and little Trevell says ‘I’m going to get this game!’ and I was like Trevell you don’t have enough money to get that game and he said ‘I should have taken that twenty dollars off of [the barber’s table]. I said Trevell that’s stealing. And he said ‘Yeah, if I steal then I get to go to jail and then I can be with Daddy [ tears up]. That killed me.

Are you still in love?
Yes, I love my husband very much. We have a great friendship. When he’s not high the two of us are on the same plane together. There are things that are exactly the same with us. He tries. I always say he’s such a good person he just has demons. And he has to work through those demons. But even when he’s high, he’s very calm. That’s the Trevell I know. He always prays, whether he’s high or not. He’s not a gangbanger, that’s not who I know.

I think I read that he’s been arrested more than 20 times. It seems like trouble or bad lunch follows him plenty.
Yes, he’s been arrested a lot, off of BS stuff. Either he was high somewhere or trespassing. I read an article that he robbed someplace, but that’s not him. I know he had an incident with Sprint where they said he tried to steal a phone, but it was really a cardboard display.

Do you think you’re too nice?
All through our relationship people would tell me I could find a better person, you know he’s on drugs. But my girlfriends always say we’ll be here for you but only you know when it’s enough.

Would you ever take him back?
Of course. He’s my husband. I love Trevell so much. When he’s clear he’s all about me and the boys. Once you get to know somebody’s heart, you don’t leave them. Even if he said he didn’t want me, I would still be doing what I’m doing now because I made a commitment to my husband.

Ex-Cop Pleads To Manslaughter After Leaving Toddler In Hot Car To Have Sex

Former Mississippi cop Cassie Baker may spend 20 years behind bars for leaving her toddler in the backseat of a police cruiser while she had sex with her supervisor.

Little Cheyenne's body temperature rose to a scorching 107 degrees before she died on Sept. 30, 2016. When Baker returned to the vehicle four hours later, Cheyenne was unresponsive. Baker, 29, pled guilty to manslaughter in a reduced plea deal Monday. (March 18) It's unclear if she intentionally left her 3-year-old in the backseat of the car.

“I don’t know what I could ever do to you that could be worse than what you’ve already experienced,” Harrison County Circuit Judge Larry Bourgeois told her. “You will forever be entombed in a prison of your own mind.”

Cheyenne's father says he's still tormented by his daughter's death and often pictures her final moments.

“Every time I close my eyes, I picture her suffering, and then I picture her laying in this coffin,” Ryan Hyer said Monday. “I still see her smiling and laughing in my head, and I would assume that smile and laughter turned to pain and suffering in that instance.”

Baker and her supervisor Clark Ladner were fired days later. While speaking with the Associated Press, he was able to avoid charges after telling authorities he was unaware Baker's daughter was in the car. Judge Bourgeois will consider the prosecution recommendation at Baker's April 1 sentencing.

Tevin Campbell Lands Guest Role On 'Queen Sugar'

The cast of Queen Sugar plans to welcome a new face to its plot for the upcoming fourth season. On Tuesday (March 19), series creator/director/producer Ava DuVernay announced the addition of R&B legend Tevin Campbell in a guest starring role.

Since August 2018, DuVernay had plans to construct a persona for Campbell after the "Can We Talk" vocalist received controversial commentary on his importance to R&B. "Rebuking any Tevin Campbell slander from millennials and plotting to write him into an episode of Queen Sugar SOMEHOW," the award-winning director wrote on Twitter. "On general principle."

Campbell's film and television resume date back to his memorable appearances on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Moesha, The Parent 'Hood, voicing Powerline in A Goofy Movie, and now OWN's Queen Sugar.

"This is so exciting for me and I want to thank Ava DuVernay. She's a do-er, she kept her word," Campbell said in a video message on Twitter. "I want to thank the cast and the crew for making me feel like I'm home like I've been here for years."

Queen Sugar is set to premiere on OWN on June 12.

Lizzo And Missy Elliott Team Up For Hypnotic Single "Tempo"

Lizzo has a new banger. The Detroit artist teamed up with Missy Elliott for her new track, "Tempo" on Wednesday (Mar. 20), and it's bound to shake the table.

The song's theme falls in line with Lizzo's past work; it's a body positive single, paying tribute to thick and curvy girls. After a powerful electric guitar intro, the song erupts into a head-knocking beat. "Slow songs, they for skinny h*es / Can't move all of this here to one of those (Hey) / I'm a thick b***h, I need tempo," she raps on the chorus.

Misdemeanor comes in on the third verse with bad b***h energy, spits controlled bars. "All the thick girls down on the flrrr (On the floor) / Ice on my neck like brrr (Like brrr) / I'm big-boned with nice curves," she raps.

Amid the song's release, Lizzo sat down with Apple Music's Beats 1 to talk about how she and Missy collaborated on the track. "She sent me a memoji of herself singing her verse, that's how I got the verse," she explained. "I got a memoji of Missy like smiling and then she just started rapping, and I was like, 'OMG what the hell' so I had to hook it up to my speaker system. But it wasn't even the actual track, it was like her going along in her studio."

Lizzo is gearing up for the release of her new project, Cuz I Love You, which is slated to drop on Apr. 19. Listen to "Tempo" in the video above.
