Now that Quincy Jones has spoken out in his now infamous interview, to do what he’s always been known to do- tell his truths- there are some bitter folks on Twitter, who have decided to spark bisexual and rape rumors about him. Although most people do not believe the rumors, it’s still has caught the attention of many. One person whose attention was grabbed by the nonsense, is Quincy’s former artist, Tevin Campbell, the actual topic of the rumor.

You see, the rumor that was created yesterday (after Quincy’s interview went viral), is that Jones ‘molested and/or raped’ the “Can We Talk” singer as a child. The problem is, this rumor just popped up yesterday and none of the naysayers offered any proof to back up their claims. In addition to that, some have offered false facts, like one person who somehow concluded that Tupac’s past interview rant about ‘Quincy Jones dating White women,’ was instead a rant about ‘Quincy raping Tevin’…wow…SMH.

Tevin Campbell Shut’s Them Down

At any rate though, Tevin Campbell, took the liberty of shutting that wack rumor down for himself, right there on Twitter, where it started. In a few tweets, his message was plain and simple:


Then he went on to quote something that Quincy Jones stated in his infamous Vulture interview:

So as y’all can see, Tevin ain’t tryna here the B.S. and I don’t blame him.

It’s understandable why some people may not have liked that Quincy Jones was so brutally honest about Richard Pryor, Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump, James Baldwin, Marlon Brando, Oprah, Marvin Gaye, and himself. But it’s one thing not to like something a person does/says, versus trying to hit a person below the belt based on meritless lies. To those who sparked this rumor: Let’s do better people, damn.
