According to BuzzFeed, there has been a year-long police investigation into a claim made last year by an anonymous woman, who says she’s the victim of a “revenge porn” situation involving Diplo, the 42-year-old DJ, and father of three whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz. In October 2020, a woman accused Diplo of recording sexually explicit videos of her without her permission, distributing at least one without her consent, raping her at a hotel in Las Vegas, and giving her chlamydia. And now he could be in big trouble, legally speaking, for allegedly recording and distributing sexually explicit videos of a woman without her consent, among other things.
Justin Bieber has some ‘splaining to do, and for once this isn’t about his eye-assaulting, repeat offenses with launching Crocs collaborations, but we are still all totally owed restitution for those blinding, hole-punched messes, and one day he’s gonna pay. Today’s shifty transgression features Diplo, and while this fuckery is not of the foot-shaming variety, it does underscore the shadiness of Biebs’ character that ultimately led to the launch of his design empire, so its awfulness can’t be understated.
Morgan Wallen, the country singer who alerted me to his existence by first getting into trouble with Saturday Night Live for breaking COVID protocols then by getting caught on video using the n-word instead of by my preferred method for being alerted to a country singer’s existence which is by dressing like a magical rhinestone hayseed at the CMA’s, is sorry. Again. If that first apology he gave right after TMZ published the video of him calling his “friend” a “pussy-ass n-word” as he stumbled to his house was lacking, that was on TMZ. But the other stuff, well that was on him. But the old him. After consulting with some Black people, he’s a new man, and that new man would never!
Yesterday’s National Sporting Event has me convinced that American has officially lost the plot in regards to the coronavirus pandemic and now Alexa is just going to go ahead and finish the story and will ping us when The End is out for delivery. And it wasn’t just the Super Bowl, our national need for spectacle, pandemic be damned, extended well past the football field and super-spread out into the streets. CNN reports that a Diplo headlined a party held at Tampa’s WTR Bar & Grill at The Godfrey Hotel on Saturday, was a particularly egregious event that drew thousands of drunken, maskless maniacs and upset officials. But don’t worry, looks like Diplo has been vaccinated for COVID-19 so he’ll probably be fine. But most of us are fucked.
I’ll be honest, I’m not saying that’s an outfit that screams, “I would never secretly leak our private sex content as an act of malice,” but I’m not saying it’s helping either. And Diplo is going to need all the help he can get at the moment. Because on top of having to deal with the ongoing suspicion that he, a 42-year-old man, might be living with a teenager, he’s also now been pulled into a situation that involves a restraining order and an allegation of distributing revenge porn.
The last time we wrote about 41-year-old Diplo, he was shrugging off Sia’s very public request to have sex with him. And now we’ve got a story that might explain why Diplo didn’t want to get with Sia. Is it because she’s at least two decades too old for him? No! Not according to Diplo, it’s not like that when it comes to his relationship with a TikTok famous 19-year-old named Quenlin Blackwell. Diplo swears there’s nothing going on between the two of them, regardless of the fact that she currently lives in his home.
