I don’t know how this news snuck past me, but we seem to be missing the Godfather of Soul.
One of the 12 people who have come forward to say they are one of his illegitimate children is LaRhonda Pettit. She says the body of the man has been taken from his crypt.
She had been keeping his body until a proper burial was organised. LaRhonda has come out saying that even though James Brown is known for using illegal drugs, his death wasn’t the result of it.
What’s more strange about this story is how his daughter has been keeping his body for over three years. Just sitting there.
So eerie. But who knows, maybe she organised for the body to be taken because she’s not among the children to get any royalties from daddy.
But the man who had been the almighty for funk music has hardly been mentioned as of late (aside from the bodysnatching incident). So today, I’d like to salute the Godfather, who taught us the boogaloo, the funky chicken, and the mashed potato.
