"BLACK HOLLYWOOD CONSPIRACY THEORY" (WAS JAMES BROWN MURDERED?)
by: Peter Sheridan
It's doubtful that the following explosive allegations will be included in the upcoming James Brown biopic (Get On Up!) this Friday.
AS THOUSANDS of fans filed past his open gold coffin on the stage of New York’s famed Apollo Theatre, in his diamond-studded sky-blue suit, white gloves and silver shoes, music legend James Brown finally looked at peace.
James Brown's confidante now says he was the victim of an elaborate ‘hit’
The Godfather of Soul, who invented funk, befriended presidents but endured a deeply troubled personal life marred by drink, drugs, divorce and numerous arrests, had died at 73 on Christmas Day, 2006, of congestive heart failure – his family claimed.
“James Brown did not die of a heart attack,” insists his former publicist Jacque Hollander, 56. “It was an ordered hit.”
Hollander hired leading private investigator Tina Church to probe the singer’s demise and the detective concluded: “There’s something fishy here. I’m not going to point fingers at anyone but the evidence speaks for itself.”
Brown was active and in vigorous health until hospitalized a few days before his death complaining of abdominal pains, say friends. Always whirling and dancing across the stage he radiated energy and was working until his final illness. But investigators now wonder if he had been poisoned.
The singer, who believed he had many enemies, was watched over by an aide in hospital who left the room for 25 minutes to run an errand – the perfect opportunity for an assassin to administer a lethal drug, Hollander believes. The aide returned to find Brown had collapsed, dying minutes later. He was buried before an autopsy could be carried out and friends are calling for his body to be exhumed for toxicology tests to determine if he was murdered.
Hollander claims she has been in hiding after receiving death threats as her investigation threatened to expose a possible killer. “I am living in fear of my life because I’m the one who can bring forth the truth.”
Overshadowing her fears, Brown’s former son-in-law Darren Lumar was murdered in 2008 by a gunman who had lain in wait. He was slain days after telling a reporter: “There’s not a bone in my body that believes my father-in-law died from congestive heart failure.”
Lumar, 38, was shot five times as he drove to his plush townhouse in a gated Atlanta suburb and the assassin was never found.
“I think it happened because he was going to tell the truth about what was done to James Brown,” says Hollander, who with Brown founded the "I Feel Good Trust," for needy children.
The trust is at the centre of the dispute that has torn Brown’s family apart. The singer left almost his entire estate, including his lucrative music rights and his 60-acre riverfront estate in Beech Island, South Carolina, to benefit deprived children.
Royalties from future record sales and music licensing could add millions annually to the fortune. In his will Brown left his children only his personal possessions: clothes, jewellery, boats and cars. The will was written before his fourth marriage and Brown’s widow Tomi Rae Hynie was not included in the bequests, though she is fighting for her share.
Brown was inspired to help underprivileged infants after enduring a brutal childhood. Born in a one-room shack in backwoods South Carolina he was abandoned by his mother and entrusted to an aunt who ran a brothel in Augusta, Georgia. He recalled it was a den of “gambling, moonshine liquor and prostitution."
As a boy he worked the streets for pennies, shining shoes and tap dancing and dropped out of school aged 12. He later blamed his troubled childhood for leading him to drug abuse, failed relationships and numerous arrests.
After visiting hospitals and raising money for sick children in the late- Eighties he was determined to use his fortune to help the less fortunate. “He spent a lot of time with one girl with spina bifida,” says Hollander, who joined him on many trips. “Afterward, he said, ‘I’m going to give them everything I have and touch their lives.’”
Known as The Hardest-Working Man In Show Business, Brown was never close to his children and in later years they had to make an appointment to see him. When he set up his trust he made it clear that his offspring were being left to fend for themselves.
However, years after his death needy kids have not seen a penny.
Also buried might be millions more of his fortune. After losing his Augusta mansion, savings and several cars to the Internal Revenue Service in 1984 for failure to pay back taxes, he began hiding a small fortune under ground, claim insiders. The buried treasure could be yet another reason why Brown was murdered, says Hollander.
FOR his last appearance, lying in state at the Apollo Theatre where he made his 1956 debut, James Brown was the centre of a raucous celebration as his music blasted inside the auditorium and on the streets outside. He arrived in a carriage pulled by white horses, parading through 20 blocks of Harlem. For seven hours fans streamed past the casket. But it may have been his last moment of peace as the battle over his estate – and his possible murder – continues with no end in sight.
If Brown’s body can be exhumed an autopsy might finally put to rest the mystery surrounding his death.
SHADOWY: (WAS A BLACK ASSASSIN HIRED?)
*(Allegedly, the following was labeled fiction but is actually based on a true story). This is a very sensitive subject therefore this story is vague in some respects.
In the 1970's, a lethal black assassin was allegedly consulted (contract killing) to murder Elijah Muhammad.
This man was of superior intelligence and had a front job as a music critic/celebrity profiler (phone interviews only). He wasn't paid for his work because he didn't need the money due to his wet work (assassination) duties. In the 70's, he was allegedly paid $75,000 per hit ($300,000 in today's dollars).
He went by the name of *Pisces. Real name unknown. He was never photographed and lived in the shadows.
For one assignment, he dressed in drag to get close to the target. The hit went off without a hitch.
In Real Life: He declined the (alleged) contract on Elijah Muhammad because he admired him.
Yet, a little known author/NOI minister (above) exposed the plot in a book. He labeled it as fiction a safety precaution.
When the book was released, it created outrage in the Black Muslim community because according to the book, unlike real life, Pisces followed through with the assassination.
Shortly afterward, the author was arrested and put on Death Row over an alleged (trumped up) murder charge. He was jailed for killing a man during an armored car that heist he swears he didn't commit.
He also insisted that a group called the "Black Angels," tracing its lineage back to Muhammad Fard himself, were behind the creation of the 5%Nation of Gods and Earths.
“And an extremely secret tribunal called "the Black Angels" was the true ruler of the Black Muslims. Nothing and no one questioned their rule and will...and lived to tell.” All photos of the "Black Angels," have been scrubbed from the internet.
This book is currently on the black market, priced at $200-$500 dollars. Very few copies are in print.
The real identity of Pisces has never been known.
Backstory (Book Excerpt):
From the beginning of the Black Muslim religion in the United States a secret tribunal watched over the church, guiding its progress through their agents in key positions in the church. They were the "guardians," the Black Angels, a council of old men whose decisions were absolute-and often brutal. Enter Pisces, international political assassin (sanctioned Jackal), hired by the Angels to end the life of Elijah Muhammad, spiritual leader of the nation of Islam, so that the leadership of the church would continue through his son as they had ordained.
And so the adventure begins, complicated by the fact that Pisces is being hunted by secret agents from another country in retribution for a previous assassination he had perpetrated. The hunter becomes the hunted.
A Detroit-area pimp took his own life as a team of law enforcement officers closed in on arresting him.
Officers of a multi-regional law enforcement team repeatedly knocked on Mark Luke White ‘s (pictured) door in Southfield, Mich., demanding that he give himself up. After getting nothing but radio silence, they raided the apartment and secured it. Some 20 seconds later, officers heard a single gunshot. Officers found White dead in the back bedroom.
Had authorities apprehended him alive, they believe they would have had a strong case to convicted him on human trafficking charges. Authorities believe that White was using his business, “Sizzling Hot,” to run a prostitution ring.
His business cards included a catchy message: Do you have champagne dreams with a Coca-Cola budget? Are you a strong willed independent young lady with exquisite taste? Do you make your own decisions without being influenced by your peers? If you answered yes, then call for great career opportunities.”
The career opportunities White was referring lead straight to a life of prostitution and abuse, authorities allege. “These predators, and Mr. White was a predator, they actually go out there and they look for people that they know have some weakness and things that they can prey upon,” said Lieutenant Mike Shaw with Michigan State Police.
White, who spent three years in prison on prostitution charges, was dubbed a “gorilla pimp” by authorities because of his extremely violent behavior towards his victims. Though one of them was brave enough to come forward to Southfield police and report White. The victim told cops that White would let her visit family every few weeks, but left her with a very strong message: If you do not come back, I will kill you and your family.
“She was being held against her will,” Shaw said. “She was fortunate. She had the strong will enough to decide that one time enough was enough, and then she went to the police, and we got her out of that situation, and she’s alive today.”
The cops found drugs, money a safe and other things they would not tell the media. Authorities say their investigation is not done and believe there are more victims connected to White’s alleged human trafficking enterprise. They are being urged to come forward.
