SWV’s LeLee Lyons Reminisces About Going Jazmine Sullivan On Ex-Fiancé Ed Lover’s Car After He Left Her For Another Woman

First let me start by saying that I had no idea that the ladies of SWV were so brutally honest. During a recent interview with Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club,” two-thirds of the 90s R&B duo, Cheryl “CoKo” Clemons and LeLee Lyons, held nothing back as they discussed getting cosmetic surgery to enhance their assets and some vintage rumors that have been floating around about them. Lelee, however, probably made the most blunt and hilarious revelations, while strolling down memory lane and reminiscing on her three failed engagements.

“I am known as the Bobby Brown of SWV,” Lelee said, referencing some rumors that she got hooked on drugs after the group broke up. “I was the crackhead that never smoked crack. I was a little more wilder [than CoKo and Taj]. Well, I was just a little more out with mine. I was single and I was doing things single women do. But see, they were more discreet. They did stuff, but you wouldn’t know. They were backdoor wh*res.”

Charlemagne went on to point out that Lelee’s highly-publicized rendezvous resulted in three marriage proposals.

“Yeah [I was engaged] three good times, but it’s a blessing that I didn’t marry those guys,” she confessed. “I mean, it just wasn’t right. I don’t wanna get married for the sake of being married. I don’t want no fake wedding, no fake just-for-show marriage. I wanna actually love my husband and mean it. I’m good. I don’t have no problem meeting no man. I’ve never had that problem and I’m single by choice.”

One of those proposals happened to come from legendary New York DJ Ed Lover, which Lelee pointed out ended on a very dramatic note.

“Oh my God, that was the second one [engagement].”

“That was the worst one,” Coko interjected. “She tore up Ed Lover’s car and did how many thousands of dollars worth of damage? She caught him with someone else and she just went crazy.”

“Well actually, I’m so glad me and Ed are at a great point in our lives right now,” Lelee said. “We went through so much. But you know, when you’re thinking that you are going to be with somebody and… you know my mother passed away. He came to my mother’s funeral and told my family, ‘I’m gonna take care of her. We gon’ be together.’ But it just kind of went dead,” she explained. “Next thing you know: ‘Aye, I got something to tell you. I’m back with such and such.’ I was like, ‘Okay,’ got on the next flight and did what I had to do. I was in Atlanta. I just buried my mother.”

“I f**ked that car up, man. It was me and my sister. [The car was parked] in the garage. The security guard was familiar with me, so he was like, ‘Hey, how you doing?’ So my sister was there and she was afraid to do it. I was like, ‘Look, if you gon’ f**k this car up, you better do it now. You gotta just do it… I feel so bad about that[now], but I tore it up. It felt so good [at the time].”

As to be expected, Ed wasn’t too thrilled when he saw the damage that she did to his car.

“All the lawyers called me.”

“I think he wanted to put a bullet in my head. I got the hell out of New Jersey after that. Oh yeah, I got out of there. But I love Ed and that’ll always be my baby.”

As for her other two engagements, Lelee says they’re irrelevant.

“You don’t know them. They’re not even worth my air time.

Lelee is a mess!

    Oh my goodness, just saw the episode with Lelee’s son rapping on that track!!! He kiiiilllllled it!!! He was melodic, timed perfection and damn good. He swept it!!! Wow!! There are no rappers outside of 50 Cent that have an excellent voice like that. I usually don’t listen to rap because the rapper’s voices sound annoying. I like the old school sound. If Lelee’s son pops out an album-I will get that. And that song Lelee and Taj did was sweeeetttt! Getting that too!

  • hi-liter

    I like their reality show. Although I have always liked them, back in the 90s I really didnt know much about them because things were not like they are now with the internet, instagram, twitter and all that stuff. I like LeLee, she is funny and says exactly what is on her mind.

  • guest8

    LOL! Man I’m an 80’s baby…early 80s and i swear i thought Lelee was the quite one b/c from most of SWV’s interviews back in the day it seemed like Coko and Taj did all the talking. Not that any of them were “loud” but man Lelee is off the hook! lol.

  • me

    I love her on their show. She reminds me of that hood cousin or two we all have … LOL. She is hilarious!

  • Auntieruckus

    I’m more of a cold person,if a man did that to me i wouldn’t even look at him ever again,he would be dead to me,i cant say that i didnt chuckle at her story tho,lol.

    • Lisa Tate

      If a man did that to me back then. So be it. She’s lucky he didn’t whoop dat a$$. Most men are CRAZY when it come to their cars. I have to give it to her though.

      • Auntieruckus

        Right? I saw a guy i went to school with dive across a table trying to stomp out his babymama for scratching “you aint sheit” on his bmw,my sister and i had to physically lay on him so she would escape..

    Went out with this woman in spring ’93 once when they came to our university and performed. We went to a local bar and hung out. She was a lot of fun and really fit in well that night but it was obvious there was a wild side to her (she posed as a student, downed a beer bong like a pro AND did some body shots with me and a few co-eds). She seemed to be a good person though and I hope that her addictions are in the past.

      I remember seeing them at the IX center years ago, she’s really cool and down to earth. She had the whole spot buzzing that she was pregnant by Ed because she kept throwing up all over the place.
      Even though I was just a kid, she made quite an impression, loool!

  • swvfan

    You do the wrong thing(s), you learn, you keep it moving. Although, I will say it’s never a good idea to damage property after a break up. The best revenge you can inact is just to move on- get on with your life.

    Men hate when you dont sweat them

    • MiaSara

      I honestly feel that men think that a woman’s life instantly hits pause after a break up, when they see that you have moved on, no crying scenes, are able to walk talk and form sentences, they are left scratching their heads wondering how you’ve managed it. Lol

    • Taylor

      GIRL! When you do that as a woman…that’s when those men double back. lol. Some are just so use to some women just screaming, yelling, cursing, and crying about the relationship ending; when a woman who doesn’t act like she has just died and simply moves on the man is like wtf. They think maybe they made the wrong decision thus you get the double back. Have had that happen a couple times. It’s funny as h3ll when you get that out of blue call from your ex and he’s trying to come up with some sort of excuse as to why he dialed your number after months with no communication. lol. Never miss a good thing until it’s gone! 🙂
