We may now know why Jody Watley refuses to reunite with ’80s pop group Shalamar.
HSK has exclusively learned that’s because the Grammy Award-winning female vocalist was attacked by former bandmate Howard Hewett. I would tell you to ask Richard Gilbert “Dick” Griffey, but he’s dead.
Here’s what a reliable source had to say:
“Howard was so fucked up on coke, he tried to rape Jody. That’s why she’ll never get back with Shalamar, bad memories.”
Sources say back in the day, Howard was dealing cocaine cocaine. His then girlfriend and future wife Mari Molina, took the rap. This was before he tied the knot with Nia Peeples, who he’s alleged to have abused.
I was also told Hewett’s current wife Angela was once a prostitute, but I cannot confirm the validity of that one way or another.
Is Howard Hewett a scumbag hiding behind Gospel music? Of course he is. Don’t believe me.. Ask Chris Dickerson.
Update: HSK can not confirm the validity of whether Angela Hewett was once a working gitl. Additionally of note is that, while Howard Hewett was indicted by a grand jury for selling cocaine to an undercover officer, but was ultimately found innocent by a jury following a trial, while his girlfirend/wife Mari plead guilty and served 4 years in prison.
