Singer Pleasure P Slams Child Molestation Claims


Pretty Ricky Pleasure P

Former Pretty Ricky singer Pleasure P has slammed rumours linking him to a 2006 child molestation case, insisting the allegations are "100 per cent false".

The ex-boyband member, real name Marcus Cooper, became embroiled in accusations he was involved in the molestation of a four-year-old kid earlier this week (ends04Dec09) when alleged court documents about the case were posted on social networking site Twitter.com by a user known as "AGoldsteinGirl".

The blogger, who claimed to be Laura Goldstein, the daughter of Pleasure P's attorney, uploaded copies of the supposed legal files online in a bid to prove his involvement and allege he was found guilty of the crime in a Broward County, Florida court.

But Pleasure P and his legal team have blasted the accusations, branding them "disgusting and vile". The singer has also denied ever employing an attorney with the last name Goldstein.

Pretty Ricky Want Reality Show To Find New Member


Pretty Ricky Pussycat Dolls MTV

R+B/hip-hop band Pretty Ricky are looking to follow in the footsteps of the Pussycat Dolls and launch a reality TV show to help in their search for a new member.
The Grind With Me hitmakers are looking for a replacement for singer Pleasure who left the group in October (07) to pursue a solo career.
And remaining bandmates Slick 'Em, Baby Blue and Spectacular are hoping to launch a U.S.-wide search for a new addition - if TV networks choose to pick up the programme.
But Baby Blue insists the new member must meet their high standards if they are to have a chance of joining Pretty Ricky.
He tells MTV.com, "We're a hip-hop and R+B group. The three of us rap, and the fourth member has to be a singer just to keep the music consistent.
"(But) it's more about (whether a new member can) be another brother and just cope with all our family issues or whatever.
"And they got to be a woman magnet. They got to know how to deal with these ladies, 'cause that's one thing we got to do. That's why the music is all about women, because Pretty Ricky loves the ladies and the ladies love Pretty Ricky."
Pop outfit the Pussycat Dolls launched a nationwide search for a seventh member on a show entitled, Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll, in April 2007 - but winner Asia Nitollano quit after just three months to go solo.

"All y'all record labels out there trying to put your new groups out, stop lying on Pretty Ricky. The ladies love Pretty Ricky."

Pretty Ricky Gig Ends In Gunfire


Pretty Ricky

A British student has been admitted to hospital after being shot during a concert by Miami-based hip hop group Pretty Ricky.
Trouble broke out at the gig, which took place at Loughborough University, England on Saturday night (10MAR07), after a CS gas canister was discharged into the audience at approximately 2:45am, causing a series of fights. Gunshots were fired soon after, resulting in a 21-year-old steward getting shot in the stomach.
A concert goer says, "There was a handful of total idiots who saw themselves as 'gangstas'. Pretty Ricky aren't really a 'guns and violence' sort of group, but that kind of crowd still turned up - and in the end they just kicked off. What I don't understand is how they managed to get a gun into the building. There are meant to be security checks."
A 22-year-old man has been arrested by police in connection with the incident.

Hip-hop boy band Pretty Ricky has ended the DREAMGIRLS soundtrack's reign at the top of the US album charts after debuting LATE NIGHT SPECIAL at number one.
The group's new album beat WINCING THE NIGHT AWAY by cult indie act The Shins to the top spot with first-week sales of 132,000. The Shins came in second with 118,000 copies sold.
While Pretty Ricky hit the top 20 in 2005 with their last album BLUESTARS, The Shins have never been higher than number 86 on The Billboard 200 chart before today (31JAN07). The number two spot also makes the album the biggest release ever on the Sub Pop label.
Meanwhile, American Idol star Chris Daughtry's self-titled debut slips to number three on the new chart and the 2007 GRAMMY NOMINEES compilation debuts at four.
And veteran rocker John Mellencamp is celebrating after scoring his highest debut on the US album chart - his new release, FREEDOM'S ROAD, sold 56,000 copies in its first week to enter at number five.
