Poor Poor Porsche Foxx! Someone is roaming around the “A” using her moniker and it appears she’s been caught up in a case of mistaken identity. According to WSB-TV, the officails have tracked down the two people involved. One being Tony Matthews and and the other being Tony’s girlfriend *cough* Porsche Foxx. Apparently it wasn’t THAT Porsche Foxx (aka Stephanie Calhoun) the police were looking for, although the neighbors are still adamant that it is:
Several neighbors told WSB-TV Channel 2 that Foxx, whose real name is Stephanie Calhoun, was outside the house where the fire started and was arguing with a man. Foxx disputed those claims.
Fulton County Fire Marshal Keith Padgett told WSB-TV Channel 2 that he hasn’t seen any evidence to prove that Foxx was at the scene.Some neighbors said they saw the former V-103 radio personality at the house arguing with Tony Matthews, whose mother, Mary, owns the damaged home and was injured in the blaze.“I had nothing, absolutely, positively, to do with any fire and I don’t know anyone involved,” said Foxx.
Padgett told WSB-TV Channel 2 that he talked to witnesses and Foxx, and so far he has no evidence that she was at the fire or linked to it so Foxx is no longer a person of interest.Padgett also said he talked to Matthews and Matthews said he doesn’t know Foxx and said he was arguing with his mother, and that is what neighbors may have heard. But neighbors are standing by their claims. (Source)
I’m still confused…but I’m glad Porsche Foxx/Stephanie Calhoun is off the hook for this one.
Former Atlanta radio personality Porsche Foxx called a press conference late yesterday afternoon to address news coverage of her being called a “person of interest” in an arson investigation in Union City. The conference yielded no new answers and law enforcement are still searching for Tony Matthews. Check out the news coverage of her press conference below:
“I absolutely, positively without a question know anything about this, nor did I have anything to do with it”
During the conference, Foxx (real name Stephanie Calhoun) claimed she had no knowledge of the fire or the location and even denied knowing the man witnesses called her boyfriend, Tony Mathis.
One, Tony Matthews, lived in the townhouse with the injured woman. The other, Foxx, was visiting when the fire broke out, according to Padgett.
Foxx’s attorney, Leron Rogers, said she did not know Matthews, whom investigators also are looking for.
Three years ago, Foxx’s home in the upscale Regency neighborhood off Campbellton Road in south Fulton was destroyed by a fire that investigators determined may have been caused by an unattended candle. (Source)
Porsche Foxx, pictured above during the BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta, has been terminated (yet again) from Atlanta radio station V-103. Program director Reggie Rouse sent an e-mail Wednesday informing staff of Foxx’s departure, and she has been removed from the list of DJs on the V-103 website. Her second stint as midday host lasted just over 16 months and although the station cites low ratings for the termination, sources say that the host may have failed a random drug test.
