Brother Down Left In The Dust?
HSK Exclusive – Will Smith’s brother-in-law is reported to at the center of a federal drug case, after being charged over a “cocaine-dealing rap”. We’re talking about Dee Lawrence Downs, 49, who married the actor’s youngest sister, Ellen, back in 2004.
It’s a situation which Will may be no stranger to. Know why? Because sources say long before heading to Hollywood, the former Fresh Prince Of Bel Air was running Philadelphia’s streets with criminals and D-boys. Don’t believe me.. Ask Charlie Mack.
You may recall we first told you reports that Will Smith had long distanced himself from his now 41-year-old sister, Ellen. That’s when sources revealed the actor may have been ashamed of her over her having a dark complexion. Now, insiders believe Will Smith continues to stand by his reported M-O of keeping away from anyone Dark, and anyone Down.
Here’s what an insider is spilling:
“Ellen is Will Smith’s dark skin sister. The sister he keeps away from the public eye.
Will always hung out with drug dealers. The ‘JBM’ used to be over at his house in the ’80s gambling and shooting pool all night.
Charlie Mack used to bring Nigg–s over to Will’s house all the time. Will and the ‘JBM” were also into money laundering.”
Here’s what’s reported by Star Magazine:
“The husband of Will Smith’s youngest sister Ellen, has been indicted in a major federal cocaine-dealing rap.
Hair and make-up artist Ellen, 41, wed her longtime boyfriend Dee Lawrence Downs, 49, in 2004. Dee Downs was described as a businessman and security guard, court documents exclusively obtained by Star show that he was arrested in May 1985 on a number of charges including reckless endangerment and possessing a weapon, and was eventually placed on probation after pleading guilty.
In 1987, Dee Downs was again arrested for possessing a controlled substance, and yet again in 1992 for felony charges that finally landed Downs behind bars.”
