So which lies of Chazz's are you believing?

The interview where he said P was perfectly healthy and had sworn off drugs at an early age?

The interview where he said the family knew of the addiction and tried to get him help in every way you can think of?
Take a seat Chazz.

Did you listen to the whole interview because something has changed since he last spoke to the press?

Chazz along with many other people have said repeatedly that the Prince they knew was not a drug user at this point there would be no reason for anyone to continue to lie about it and let's all be honest people who are lifelong drug addicts simply are not as productive as Prince was for almost 40 years.

I believe Prince was not a lifelong drug user and I believe Charles is telling the truth. When he was interviewed he talked about an intervention which I believe was recent and due to recent issues. He also admits he had not spoken to Prince in a while and never said he was at this intervention or even if the intervention happened.

I believe Prince was ill and increased his use of drugs to deal with some illness and he did not make but a few people aware of it. I do not think Chazz knows anything about what health issues Prince was dealing with because of his past of speaking with the press. To Chazz’s credit he was very honest about speaking to the press for years going back to Nelson’s George’s book on Prince. It is obvious from the way he is being treated by the sibs because they do not trust him to not go to the media which in the end is exactly what he is doing because they are not telling him anything. If Prince was just a drug addict who died of a simple O.D there would be no secrets and odd behavior.

The case would be closed and life would move on. According to Charles the case is still open and now we know the cameras were removed not turned off.

Listen Up. Chazz isnt even a first cousin.

Maybe not even a second.

Cops usually only talk to siblings not cousins so removed I cant even count the number.

He is writing a book, and needs attention.

He has never gotten over the fact Morris took his place as drummer.

Chazz needs to take a seat.

I have to agree with you. Chazz is not close to the family. He even said himself in this interview (link below) that he was not privy to information, and was kept outside P's circle.

Listen to his most recent interview and he will tell why he is not close.

I don't believe ANY of the stories that they told me" (about Prince's death) says cousin

How would he know any differently than what we've figured out ourselves? I haven't seen nor heard anything at all that indicates he is "in the know" about anything at all, but there's been plenty of leading comments and innuendo...but that's not facts. Dude is clocking for his own benefit and people are really beginning to see that. But hey, it's cool smile

What will he benefit from it? He is not going to inherit anything and he has said he will not be going back to Paisley Park for anything because of Kirk.

He also admitted that he is not in the know because certain family members are openly hostile toward him for asking questions. Did you know that Omarr jumped up in his face at the memorial service for asking questions? Did you know that Kirk brushed him off at the memorial services? Did you know SNJ did not want Mattie's children at the memorial? Did you know the cameras had been removed from Paisley Park? Did you know Kirk's whole family is working at Paisely Park? I liked hearing about their early days in Grand Central because that is the beginning of the Minneapolis sound not the dozen are so assoicates now riding the purple gravy train some of which as Charles points out had no time for Prince when he was alive and well.

All of those things are facts that he presented not innuedo. Charles is also the third person I know of who is openly speaking out about Kirk. Who has been called a liar by two other associates.

How is he benefiting?

Attention.

Attention.

The attention he so desperately sought for the past 30+ years.

Just like Pepe, P kicked Chazz to the curb for a reason.

He knows nothing.

All he is doing is stirthepot stirthepot

You havent seen any of P's 1st cousins seeking attention like Chazz the 3rd cousin.

Chazz needs to take several seats.

That is his cousin. He does not have to take a seat. It would make more sense for the sibs to tell him what the hell is going on. Keeping even family members in the dark is drawing attention.

Also Prince's other cousins and relatives are on Facebook and their pages are open. The seem supportive of what Chazz is doing.

Yeah, I pretty much knew most of what you said. But what you and I DON'T know is if there is a specific reason why he is being treated this way by family and others. I suspect there is. They may also feel this isn't any of his business. It really isn't, they don't owe him anything whatsoever, he's not an heir nor a sibling. I agree with what ISLIJAG said above, it's pure attention seeking and he's enjoying every minute of it. Making a career of justice4cuz. Gonna be real interesting to see how THAT's gonna be extended wink


Peeps have questioned this stuff and the responses weren't at all satisfactory and came down to "it's my cuz and I can do it if I want to" and it's true, he certainly can. But he doesn't have credibility as far as I am concerned and I am not alone in that. Thanks though for passing along the info, I still like to hear what you've got to say and you know that. I assume you like hearing responses too even if we don't see things the same way.

I suspect the family member do not want him to talk to the media so they are not telling him anything but he is speaking to the media anyway and I am sure he will keep right on going. I am sure if they told him he would pipe down as he would see that things are not as bad as he thinks.

If I were him and I thought someone had done something or just not cared for a family member I would be appalled and would do the same thing. I did not think his red rimmed eyes on that news show were fake tears. I think he is more hurt and confused which is normal in this stituation.

I agree with what he said about some associates hating on Prince ( their right ) and riding the gravey train. I think many have no idea what happend to him and could really care less.

Charles is right about that. Prince did a lot of good things for people and it is obvious that some people took advantage. I do not think he is wrong for pointing that out.

I've heard that the last time he spoke to Prince was in 86? Is that true? Because if he wasn't in regular nor recent contact then what is there that he can add? Like I said Laura, there's a reason for things that are going on and there were reasons why Prince cut people loose too. I don't care about why Chazz thinks he needs to express his personal thoughts publicly and to the media about Prince, but I and others question the motivation behind that because it just isn't necessary. Did you ever consider that he too is taking advantage of his connection to Prince like he says others are? Being family doesn't excuse someone from taking advantage. It's telling that no other family members are doing it and if there is anything to be said, it should come from Prince's siblings/heirs.

But you know, that's my opinion. I'm good with it and in the same way you want me to think about what you've said, you should seriously consider what I've said too smile
