Detroit Mayor Apologizes

- By Bossip Staff

Scandalous Mayor of Detroit Kwame Kilpatrick apologizes for his wrong doings and the “Text Message Scandal”. That just sounds funny.

SMH at his wife sounding like she’s reading a script. Too bad he didn’t apologize to his Chief of Staff Christine Beatty for ruining her marriage and causing her to resign from her job.

    I applaud his wife for being such a strong woman and making the decision to stand by him. All I can do is hope that he really means what he say, he has repented to God and to his family and they can move on from this. That was a heck of a betrayal on his part, but who are we to judge. We all sin and fall short.

    this is still a mess..if you insider’s from the last post have new info on the mess that is their life, please feel free to leave the details..although i am at work, i will periodically be stopping here through out the day for tickles..

    I hope that he can move on from this. I hate to see another black man trying to excel in a major leadership position being subject to negative media coverage. However, his story is another example of how, “it’s not the scandal, it’s the cover up”. If he had “manned up” earlier about his affair, then he wouldn’t be facing the fallout from lying under oath. I also agree that he owes Christine Beatty a public apology as well, but most people will forgive him for that as well. After all, “check the ho, not the pimp”.

    Negro, please. You caused every single bit of the embarassment and shame. Next.

  • Hmm

  • tboz

  • Hmm

    It was like watch(ing) Kobe and Vanessa Bryant’s public apology back in the day! lol!! – right down to the hand holding – (Excuse the typo in the last post, too busy laughing to type properly…LOL!!)

  • Vick

    I live in Detroit. And all I want 2 know is;What is he apologizing for? Not once did he mention the reason for his apology.Detroit is well-known for the violence throughout different communities. This city is in waist deep debt with the Public Schools system, the economy, and countless other issues. But this man has a 500,000 home in Florida.

  • Bankable P

    I didn’t watch the video but I still don’t buy it. How can you have the nerve to say the “L” word (love), in several text messages, to another person but then come back and say ohh i’m sorry i didn’t mean it, i “love” my wife, etc, etc.

  • Bankable P

    i would love to see a press conference where the wife that was cheated on just acts “real” in the interview. Just get up off the couch and start cussing his butt out on national tv…..LOL!!


    Beatty and Kilpatrick ruined their own marriages…


    Damn… “See you at Work Tomorrow”..He made that statement strong

  • Axelary

    @Karen – hopefully, you’re NOT that stupid in real life [cyber life, people have internet balls] but really, he HAS BEEN cheating and she HAS KNOWN about it so, either they have an open marriage we aren’t privy to OR she really just wants to be the first lady – like those pastors wives that put up with everything so they can be called the ‘first lady’ – all scripted and all an attempt to gain sympathy for his soon removel from office! i don’t know who’s more the dummy, him for getting caught like a 12yr old or her for holding that hand that’s been everywhere but on her body SMH

  • Amy

    The reverse situation would NEVER happen. If a woman cheated on her husband he would never embarrass and humiliate himself like that… most men would NEVER sit next to a woman that did that to them, hold hands and then read a speech about how much he loves his wife. I really just want both of them to STFU! He’s not sorry and she is losing more of herself every second that she stays with him.

    CNN) — This is the text of a statement released at the request of Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, through her husband’s attorneys, Harold Haddon and Pamela Robillard Mackey, and his agent Rob Pelinka.

    “I know that my husband has made a mistake — the mistake of adultery. He and I will have to deal with that within our marriage, and we will do so. He is not a criminal.

    “I know that he did not commit a crime, he did not assault anyone. He is a loving and kind husband and father. I believe in his innocence.

    “Because I know him to be innocent, I will stand by him and we will face this together. I will give him all the strength and support he needs to face these false accusations. I will not let him face these accusations alone.

    “I know Kobe better than anyone. The great person you see on the court and in the public is a far greater person off the court.”

    Why is anyone feeling sorry for Christine Beatty?

    How did he ruin her marriage?(It takes 2 to tango)

    Could she have said no to his advances?

    Is the Chief of Staff position the only job avaiable in Detroit or even Michigan that an intelligent black woman can get?

    I heard that she feared losing her job if she didn’t go along with his sexual advances. But isn’t she a law student?

    Couldn’t she have hired a lawyer or at least threaten to so that she could get that monkey off her back?

    It takes two to play the adultery game, and she is no victim.

  • Keepin' It Real (D'Original)

    This is a wack a$$ ni@@a… And they call him the first “Hip-Hop Mayor” or something like that…

    Ever since he’s been the Mayor of Detroit, there’s been nothing but once scandal after the other…

    He’s REALLY immature and is one stupid mother f#cker… And I say that because he does stuff without thinking about the consequences of his actions, like a little boy… He’s a TRUE dumb a$$…

    This ni@@a is an embarrassment to the Black community and I’m & tired of hearing about him and his bulls#it…

    Grow Up, you stupid mother f#cker…

  • msjlh

    they had to put on the image of a “united front”. Look at Hillary and Bill Clinton, Magic and Cookie Johnson, Kobe and Vanessa Bryant.

    There was that guy who was either the governor or mayor that admitted on live t.v. that he was having a gay affair with his assistant and the horrible thing is that his wife found out at the same time we all did!! Now that would have caused me go skrait bollistic. All you would have heard was Biggie in the background: “kicked in the door, waving the four-four all u heard was poppa don’t hit me no more”

  • Canuckistan

    This just makes me sad. I know that we as a people are capable of more than this. This is a man who is in the public eye and who (whether he realizes it or not) is held to a certain standard and must serve as a role model for our people. Yet, behaves no better than your average trifling idiot. Waiting for the day when our leaders are just that…true leaders.

    @Harlem Chic

    You are preaching in here today! Let the choir say Amen!

    This ish pisses me off. Why do they keep talking about having to deal with this in public. Is this man not a PUBLIC figure? An elected official who has had numerous affairs, not just w/Beatty, on the public’s dime. I don’t want to offend anyone who is from Detroit or lives in Detroit, but I’ve been there once and found it depressing and sad. The disparity between certain areas was overwhelming.

    To think his big ass has cost the city millions and they are trying to make this a “he cheated it’s a personal matter” thing is beyond me and a frickin shame. The repercussions of him and CB lying haven’t even begun.

  • Black Beauty

    Chile please. He didn’t ruin her marriage. She ruined her own marriage when she was running around with another man.

  • Throwhisassunderthebus

    ummm, how’s that saying go? Oh yeah, nukka please.
