Sister Tells How Mom Reportedly Caught ‘Abusive’ James Brown In 17 Yr Old Tammi Terrell’s Bed
If icons -like Marvin Gaye, Elvis Presley, or James Brown- lived in today’s #MeToo social media era, they would be royally screwed and joining the likes of R. Kelly. Why? Because all of them were known to date and/or marry underaged girls when they were grown men at the height of their careers.
As truth diggers, here at ILOSM, we understand there’s a lot we can all learn from the lives and legacies of Old School celebs- regardless of if the details are good, bad, or ugly. With that said, let us share with y’all Motown singer, Tammie Terrell’s, sister’s details about the reportedly tumultuous relationship between Tammi and James Brown.
Brown Was 30 and Terrell was 17?
Tammi Terrell was best known for her duet with Marvin Gaye, “Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing,” You’re All I Need To Get By,” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” But before she made the move to Motown, she was Brown’s backup singer. It was during that time that Tammi reportedly began dating Brown when he was 30 and she was 17 years old.
According to Tammi’s sister, Ludie Montgomery, when their Mother found out that her teen daughter was dating a 30 year old cat, she nearly lost it.
