James Brown

If you didn’t see the recent James Brown biopic, Get On Up, then you may not know that aside from being Soul Brother Number One and the Godfather of Soul, James Brown was also violent with women. In a recent memoir that his daughter wrote, Cold Sweat, she details the different times she heard her father wreak physical havoc on her mother as a kid. In one gruesome account in particular, she recalls the first time she saw him abuse her mother. She jumped on Brown’s back to stop him from pummeling her mother, only to look down and see her mother’s eyes were purple and her face was gushing with blood.
