Hynie Gets Locked Out
James Brown's partner of over 5 years was locked out of her own home just hours after the death of James. Tomi Rae Hynie (lol Hynie) was also James's back-up singer. The two married in 2001, but the marriage was null because Hynie was married to another man. Hynie says that she was on a retreat when she learned of her husband's death. When she arrived at the couple's home she found the front gate padlocked and the security guard told her that she wasn't allowed inside due to orders from James' lawyers.
Buddy Dallas, one of his lawyers said, "It's not a reflection on her as an individual. I have not even been in the house, nor will I until appropriate protocol is followed."
Buddy said that because they weren't married she was merely a guest in his home. Hynie however does have a 5-year-old son with James and says she has a legal right to live there.
She said, "This is my home. I don't have any money. I don't have anywhere to go."
Hynie and James didn't have a perfect relationship. They apparently hadn't seen each other for weeks leading up to his death. James was also convicted for beating her ass in 2001.
Dramz! Here's another Anna Nicole Smith for you. Hynie should get something though, because she is the mother of his child. She gets points off for me though. Any good goldigger knows that you have to put some of his money to the side just in case of situations like this. She also should've rushed to his side when he was slowly dying and made him sign a grip load of documents. Dumb ho, it's her own fault!
