Marcus Cooper aka Pleasure P accused of child molestation
Marcus Cooper, a.k.a. Pleasure P, is being rocked by rumors this week.
The 24-year-old R&B star is now one of the most talked about topics on Twitter after court documents were posted online alleging that the ex-Pretty Ricky singer molested his niece and nephew.
Based from those papers, Cooper was apparently no longer allowed to have unsupervised contact with children after inappropriately touching the 3-year-old boy and 4-year-old girl.
AGoldsteinGirl (real name Laura Goldstein), a woman claiming to be the daughter of an attorney who allegedly defended Cooper in a child molestation case in 2006, posted photos of the court documents on her Twitter account along with the words “Pleasure P is a Child Molester PROOF.”
A source that claims to be close to the family told gossip website Necole Bitchie:
“When he [Marcus] was 16 going on 17, he was left alone with his niece and nephew with whom he touched and penetrated with fingers on several occasions. His aunt noticed his niece complaining of her genital area hurting, when asked what happened she replied “Uncle Marcus keeps touching me and he hurt me”. Of course Marcus (Pleasure P) denied the allegations but the doctor found signs that she had vaginal damage and tearing. Charges were then pursued by the State of Florida.”
Writing via his official website, the singer has struck back at the rumors.
“All of the recent rumors and accusations that are being circulated about me are 100% false.They are disgusting and vile; and they are being spread by individuals with their own sick agendas. The purported documents that are also being circulated are forgeries. I have never met or known anyone by the name of “AGoldstein” or Laura Goldstein or Ashley Goldstein, which I believe are fictitious names. I have never been represented by an attorney named Goldstein. For someone to go to such depths to assassinate my character and slander my good name is truly criminal. My attorneys are investigating this matter and will take all necessary and appropriate action to protect my name and reputation.”
