Was Pleasure P Convicted of Molesting His 4-year-old Niece and Nephew?


Former Pretty Rickey member Pleasure P (real name: Marcus Cooper) isn't having a good week, either.

It seems as though when Wendy kicked him out of the studio for being cryptic and boring last June, he was really hiding something.

It was alleged that the former singer was convicted of sexually assaulting his four-year-old niece and nephew in Florida back in 2004. Pleasure P was 16 when he is said to have committed the crimes and served eight months in prison.

Laura Goldstein, the daughter of the attorney who represented Pleasure P and was instrumental in getting him a plea deal that kept him out of prison for a longer period of time, took to Twitter (of, course!) to expose all of the shocking details.

"The guy Pleasure P molested a 4 yr old child and was about to molest another one when police came and saved the child. Now, the truth is out they’re threatening my family [and] telling my dad he’s going to get sued. But they can’t because its a crime," Laura claimed in her tweets. "Pleasure P got kicked out of a group [because] he was hiding that he was a child molester. His managers or whatever hired my dad to keep it quiet so he could get a record deal. My dad was being paid to cover it up but they owe my dad a lot of money and don’t want to pay him."

When Laura's dad inquired about the balance due, Pleasure P (or someone in his camp) allegedly told the attorney he wasn't going to get any more money and threatened him.

So, Laura decided to blow up Pleasure P's entire spot and ruin his life. (Well, in actuality, if he is a child molester he ruined his own life, she just made it public knowledge.)

But wait, it gets worse. Laura Twitpic'd court documents demanding that Pleasure P no longer have contact with his four-year-old nephew.






Florida's child protective agency ChildNet was instrumental in keeping the kids away from Pleasure P, according to a report.

Apparently the child molestation charges weren't news to the members of Pretty Ricky. Pleasure P's former bandmate Spectacular tweeted, after the documents became public, "WOW! Who told u that!?? That was sealed!"

The folks over at Word on the Street magazine reached out to Pretty Ricky's management for comment.

They said: “Unfortunately due to Pleasure P’s lawyer filing an injunction against us from speaking, we are not at liberty to speak about the case. However we will let it be known that we did kick him out of the group, he did not leave on is own free will. We did a deal with Atlantic via Craig Calman that we would let him out of the group if they bought out his contract with us and Blue Star which is the official label of Pretty Ricki. We are not at liberty to discuss why we kicked him out of the group."

But wait, there's more.

An insider filled Necole Bicthie in on the rest of the sickening and scandalous details.

"I am VERY close to the situation and BOTH parties and I want you to understand that it is ALL true. Not speculation or anything. He was convicted," the source said. "The problem lies in Blue Star Entertainment, the label that housed and groomed Pretty Ricky. They paid a substantial amount of money to have these documents sealed back in 2006. The label wanted to keep the aura of Pleasure in the group and figured since he was signed basically for life that they would recoup the cost. Well, this was not the case as the other members of Pretty Ricky started separating themselves from Marcus “Pleasure P” Cooper as time went on. This eventually lead to them riding in separate cars to shows, arguing amongst themselves to them even jumping him (Pleasure P) at one point. This lead to him leaving the group but he is still very much contracted to Blue Stars Entertainment for 5 albums.

"Here’s what happened: When he was 16 going on 17, he was left alone with his niece and nephew with whom he touched and penetrated with fingers on several occasions. His aunt noticed her daughter complaining of her genital area hurting, when asked what happened she replied “Uncle Marcus keeps touching me and he hurt me”. Of course Marcus (Pleasure P) denied the allegations but the doctor found signs that she had vaginal damage and tearing. Charges were then pursued by the State of Florida.

"The incident happened in 2004 going into 2005. He served like 8 months, rehab and community service by time the trial came up. Marcus accepted a plea with the State of Florida and Joseph Smith who is the care giver of the niece and nephew which Marcus “Pleasure P” Cooper molested. These are not the only papers filed against him. These are the first of 3. As part of the plea agreement Marcus plead guilty and paid an “undisclosed amount” to remain free and have the records “sealed” and on the family level for them to remain quiet and not to speak publicly about it. The “sealed document” means nothing other than “we won’t tell anyone it’s here..but if they find it they can have it” basically. The problem also is that Attorney Goldstein (Who represented Marcus “Pleasure P” Cooper in the trial) has a daughter named Laura Goldstein who is also her fathers assistant. Marcus Cooper never completed his payments after the hearing to his attorney.

"Attorney Goldstein tried to reach out to Marcus only to be told “Don’t call this phone no more” on several occasions. This caused frustration on Attorney Goldstein’s ends due to the time & effort he put into this “special plea bargain” he negotiated that I don’t think ANY attorney could have done. After Attorney Goldstein threatened to sue Marcus Cooper the “alleged threats” became real from Coopers end. I have personally heard these messages and I know who they are from and they are very disturbing. Especially to an attorney who can use them against you.

"Laura Goldstein felt her father was not doing enough to stop the threats as they began to increase so she took to twitter (her twitter is @AGoldsteinGirl) to “expose” Marcus “Pleasure P” Cooper in a way that was sure to make him “go away”. Now all the documents from the initial hearing have been released and there is plenty more evidence out there I assure you. Everyone involved including Spectacular (Pretty Ricky) have commented via twitter on the documents in shock thinking they would never get out.

"The next problem is whether Laura Goldstein's father will have to pay the ultimate price of getting disbarred for breaking Attorney Client Privilege or will it be deemed public domain? I don’t know, but I do know both parties and its about to get ugly."

Wow! Wow! Wow!

Update: Pleasure P issued a statement.
"All of the recent rumors and accusations that are being circulated about me are 100% false. They are disgusting and vile; and they are being spread by individuals with their own sick agendas. The purported documents that are also being circulated are forgeries. I have never met or known anyone by the name of "AGoldstein" or Laura Goldstein or Ashley Goldstein, which I believe are fictitious names. I have never been represented by an attorney named Goldstein. For someone to go to such depths to assassinate my character and slander my good name is truly criminal. My attorneys are investigating this matter and will take all necessary and appropriate action to protect my name and reputation."

UPDATE, May 2012: Three years after this story broke, Pleasure P's legal team continues to investigate. The singer's management sent us a note saying these allegations "are not true and were created by people whose goal was to smear" their client's name. The letter goes on to say: "These false accusations can cause irreparable harm to his career and we are contacting all of the websites that have posted an article requesting which includes this erroneous information to remove them as soon as possible. The posts on all of the involved websites were user generated and do not represent the point of publication that has the post on their websites. The information was posted all over the internet by a malevolent person that created a fictitious alias and story to sabotage Mr. Cooper's career. Our attorneys are investigating the matter to determine the person who supplied this information to the websites. We in no way will hold any of the websites themselves liable. The language of Section 230(c) of the Communications Decency Act fundamentally states that, these sites are not held liable for any allegedly defamatory, offensive or harassing content published on the site."

how is it that Michael Jackson can do tha same shxt & people still looked up to him as a "Icon" . personally i will alwayzs & continue to be a Pleasure P , fuck tha bullshxt . lls .

Pleasure P is not all that. It is not okay to abuse a child. And for your info, the boy that claimed Michael Jackson molested him came out and said his father told him to lie. Get it together and grow up. Obviously, you are young. I suggest you grow up!!

Anonymous said...

this person is not saying that molestation is ok they are saying that if michael got away then pleasure p should. michael was basically off before the kid told the truth. i personally think pleasure is an average artist who, if true, effed up and tried to hide it. since it was in the shadows it shows you what kind of character he as well as his bandmates have.

we need to understand that Micheal slept with the children but how ever,he never touched on them.Pleasure P on the other hand actually touched on his niece.now his fantastic as a artist or what not but his a big disappointment when it comes to this whole situation.

Pleasure P is a monster and so is anyone who covers up abuse whether it be under the guise of the "law."

Anonymous said...

The truth will indeed come out, especially with so much attention on it now. And someone is lying. I hope that Pleasure P did not do this or he can kiss his career goodbye. Michael Jackson was never convicted of the alleged crimes. This document states Pleasure P (marcus cooper) PLED guilty of this crime. Big difference.

if pleasure did molest his niece and nephew he is nasty!!!! and hello... no one should get away with molesting children. ummmm... okay he did time and went to rehab so don't mean he change he could do it again.i think he should stand for his actions.

I don't think you can molest children and hide that from the public. Convicted sex offenders have certain rules and regulations they have to abide by, i.e. not living within a certain distance of a school zone.... I'm not buying it. As the blog states, the alleged attorney is taking a risk of being disbarred by disclosing attorney-client-privileged information. If there is an attorney seeking to get paid from Pleasure P why would he handle it through twitter and not his playground ''the courts". SMH!

All of y'all stfu he didn't do it. Its all bs

Anonymous said...

It just amazes me how everyone seems to have these miraculous abilities to have seen something they were not present for. I don't think anything about abuse is funny or should be taken lightly. This is why I feel it is unfairly to believe a situation we only read about and truly do not honestly know anything about. Would YOU want this to happen to you because of people being jeolous of your success. We know people do this on a regular basis in everyday life. This why I have yet to believe what I personally don't know anything about. Its only fair.

OMG I LOVE PLEASURE P...IF HE DID DO IT, I DON'T THINK IT'S RIGHT, BUT HE SAID HE DIDN'T SO I'LL BE ON HIS SIDE 100%....IMMA STILL LISTENTO HIS MUSIC...HE IS SO FINE, AND PEOPLE LIE ON CELEBRITIES ALL THE TIME JUST TO BRING THEM DOWN....SO I BELIVE PLEASURE P...

Ok im late i did not know this until just now. But what some of you are saying is true, and i agree on both parts. Yes he did molest the niece and or nephew. But that was way back dont hold stuff over peoples head forget it he pleaded guilty. Its not like he molested you.( and im not saying its cool he molested someone)

Anonymous said...

Are you guys serious??? If its true and it happened in the past doesnt mean ok let it go now it was 6 years ago. Once a rapist always a rapist/child molester. Even if he got help. Think about it if it was your kids, all of you guys who said shit like he didn't do it or whatever, you would want it to be know on what he did so he didn't do it to others.

Ok he is not cute he look like a pedophile in that pic and if he raped a child i don't care how long ago it was he should have to register like every other sicko pedophile out here. I don't know if he did it or not but if he did he should get treated like all the rest do. I have 2 kids and i dare a mofo to touch any of them family or not aint no keeping it quiet he woulda never been famous he wouldn't be living after his 8 months was up.
