Hold your lighters up for the memory of what neo soul crooner D’Angelo USED to be. D’Angelo, whose real name is Michael Archer, was arrested Saturday (March 6) after he allegedly offered an undercover policewoman $40 for oral sex.
According to the New York Post, D’Angelo was driving in his Range at about 2:30 a.m. when he saw a woman he believed to be a prostitute. After asking the woman for sex, he was arrested and charged with solicitation.
The singer is also said to have had $12,000 in cash stashed in his vehicle at the time of the arrest.
D’Angelo has been plagued by legal troubles since his 2002 arrest for allegedly resisting arrest. Since then the singer has been arrested repeatedly for charges ranging from possession of marijuana to DUI.
In 2007, he received suspended jail sentences after pleading guilty to charges of driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license. A Virginia judge revoked his license for 13 and a half months and fined him $1,250, with additional penalties suspended. He also was injured in a car accident in 2005.
D’Angelo is almost up there with DMX. Umma need him to get it together…soon. Unfortunately I don’t think he’ll ever be what he was.
Remember when there were women willing to pay HIM for sex? *sigh* So sad…
