BLIND ITEM BONUS:
One of our sources pulled this off a “downlow” message board:
1. I have been in a long term relationship with a brotha who is a VERY FAMOUS celeb here in Atlanta. I will not rat him out…I’m just tired of being on the low with it! He and I don’t see each other everyday, due to his crazy schedule, but I need someone who I can chill with on the regular! He takes care of me somewhat…he just got me a Mint Green Range Rover…I just feel bad for his girl, cause she is so in LOVE with him!
BLIND ITEM: (AIDS SCARE IN HIP-HOP)
E. Lynn Harris’s novels featured a closeted R&B singer who was leaving his group to launch a solo career. The general consensus is that the character was based on Kenny Greene (Intro-first photo). If Greene would have lived, he would have been one of the top producers/songwriters of all time. He was immensely talented and could sing.
2. Before his death from AIDS in 2001, Kenny Greene was so closeted that his group members had no idea that he was bisexual.
Gene Anthony Ray (another NY resident) let it be known (through the gay grapevine) that he thought Greene was cute, due to scheduling, the two never hooked up.
Ray would die of AIDS, two years later.
Greene worked with a variety of artists and sung background on numerous records.
Greene had various “discreet” hookups with (so called heterosexual and gay men) within the industry yet he got infected by a blue collar guy outside of the industry.
One of the famous men he hooked up with is a well known artist (today).
Allegedly, he had sex with Greene and continues to worry about his health although it’s been 11 years since Greene’s death.
This well known artist continues to test negative but he assumes, the virus may (still) be dormant and could come out at any time.
He was so shook up after Greene’s death that he never slept with another man again.
Hint: The well known artist (may be-or may not be) an artist that Greene worked with.
Who is he?
