Charlamagne Admits First Sexual Experience With His Wife Was Rape

July 23, 2018  |  

Update: Charlamagne and his wife clarify and deny first sexual encounter was rape. Read what they had to say this morning, here.

Last week, we reported about the conviction in Angela Rye’s defense of her “brother” Charlamagne. In an Instagram post, she wrote: “My brother is neither a molester or rapist.”

Angela Rye certainly took a risk. Not only because no one can claim to have been with Charlamagne every step of the way but more importantly his own recollections about his interactions with women point to someone undeniably rapist behavior. There was the woman he admitted to giving Spanish Fly to, in order to have sex with her—much like Bill Cosby. The allegations from a woman who claimed Charlamagne raped her when she was 15 and he was 22. Now another interview about his first sexual encounter with his wife has resurfaced.

In it, Charlamagne outright admits that the two of them both agree he raped her the first time they had sex.

‘I keep telling’ y’all. I’ve told y’all this over and over. It’s a lot of things guys did especially when we were young that were rape that we just didn’t consider rape. I’m married to my wife. Me and my wife dated for a whole year, she would not give me no pussy. Me and my wife hung out one Saturday night and she got sloppy drunk and passed out in my momma’s house and I got that pussy. She was f*cking me back and all that but she was really drunk. I asked her yesterday, ‘Yo, did I rape you the first time we ever had sex?’ And she goes, ‘I mean in hindsight, yeah…’

I believe Charlamagne when he says that he didn’t consider the things he did to women rape. And just because his wife decided to marry him after their first sexual encounter doesn’t mean that she was the first or last woman to experience this type of violation at his hands or that other women didn’t walk away from a sexual experience with him feeling abused and traumatized. Because sex with an inebriated or intoxicated person–especially one who is passed out– is defined, legally, as rape.

More than anything, this should serve as a warning for other women. Don’t speak for men. Even if you know and love them. You weren’t there. You don’t really know. The most you can offer as a supporter of someone accused of something like this is to say, this is not who I know him to be. But in this case with Angela Rye, her defense is null and void when the accused and his wife are willing to call a thing a thing.
