Benzino can’t seem to avoid bad press. The record producer and Source founder was launched into controversy after he faced accusations that he had a romantic relationship with a transgender woman. Benzino did shut down the rumors but the drama surrounding the topic refuses to die down.
Recently, Benzino went on a Twitter rant while threatening violence over rumors about an alleged romance with a transgender woman. The veteran rapper lashed out at Shauna Brooks for allegedly spreading lies about him.
Benzino shared screenshots of their private messages, which alluded that he’ll hunt down and kill Brooks. He wrote in his tweet, “This person has crossed a dangerous line and I’ve already accepted that at 56 years old I will die now or go to jail for the rest of my over my name, reputation and legacy,” He also added, “This weirdo mf is playing with y’all, not me. He/she still haven’t said that we never met in person.”
Benzino also had bloggers and YouTubers in his cross-sights for spreading rumors about him and Brooks. The rapper threated to sue anyone who profited off this. He wrote, “Anybody, and I mean anybody who had written a blog or on YouTube tryna make money off of this is about to be sued,” He then continued his rant in epic fashion.
“This internet will get someone killed for real, and know this, on my mother I dare a mf to say something IN PERSON to me about this false bs, I will put two in your face, continue with my day or night and call my lawyer to make sure he’s on point with my bail situation, get bailed go to trial and what happens happens.”
Benzino also accused Brooks of sharing fake texts before discussing their leaked phone call, which started the rumors. He wrote, “Now the punk is photoshopping texts smh this s#### crazy but it’s ok.” Obviously, Benzino has a lot to say on the matter.
“He going to hell not me. Go on my only fans, take pic and create some b####### conversation, he gotta be getting money for this because why risk your life for nothing? I never texted none of that, In the phone conversation I clearly said if anyone knew we had a ‘conversation’ what it would be.”
Benzino’s social media venting eventually spiraled into transphobic ranting. He claimed that if anyone says anything against the LGBTQ community they “rally and raise hell but when these ‘transformers’ lie and try and trick straight men nobody from the LGBTQ community says anything,” Meanwhile, all his tweets are attached below.
