Spike Lee's Brother Blasting Him In The National Enquirer

I didn't get my copy of this week's National Equirer yet, but shaky source Contact Music says, Spike's brother Christopher is furious the director won't let him sell a piece of land he is legally entitled to so he can avoid being evicted from his home. Christopher claims he has been forced to go on welfare and is being thrown out of his Brooklyn, New York apartment because his brother refuses to help him financially. He claims his brother is controlling the rights to a valuable piece of land set aside by their grandmother, which was to be divided equally among the five Lee siblings. Christopher tells American publication National Enquirer, "I asked him...advance me the value of the land, bro." He says the 49-year-old MALCOLM X director replied, "I'm not giving you a dime." The famed director hits back at the claims saying, "My brother's statements to the Enquirer are falsehoods. Nonetheless, my siblings and I still love him. "I'm not the first nor will I be the last public figure who will be accused by a sibling of not doing enough. My question is, 'When is enough enough?

UPDATE: I got my copy of the Enquirer and Chris calls Spike a clown, a fake and a phoney. But get this, the grandmother who gave them the property ain't even dead yet. Chris approached Spike at the Grandma's 100 birthday celebration party with the proposition.

Why should he have to advance his brother anything on heir property. It is not Spikes fault the man cant pay his bills. Spike does not owe him that-no matter how much money he has, he is not the bank and his brother needs to find another way to support himself. Everyone falls on hard times-the object is to pick yourself up!

True. But can't Spike just loan him the money?

A "heads up" for those of you who may be regular Home Depot customers. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you!
Here's how the scam works:
Two seriously good-looking 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look.
When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say "No" and instead ask you for a ride to another Home Depot. You agree and they get in the back seat. On the way, they start having sex with each other. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and performs oral sex on you, while the other one steals your wallet. I had my wallet stolen November 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, & 24th. Also December 1st, 3rd, twice on the 7th, three times just yesterday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.
So be careful.

That guy has been to the well many, many times. Keep a steady job and you can pay your rent, free loader. Don't give him shit, Spike...

angela said...

But thats his brother...Even if he don't want to give him nothing..he should just be nice.

Anonymous said...

He is being nice, by not giving him a dime! Dude needs a steady job and if he has one, he needs to get another job because the first one is not doing the trick. I think it is sad that he even expects his brother to pay his way. I have had to learn the hard way about family. My brother who I thought loved me unconditional showed his true colors when I stopped paying all of his bills and his girlfriends bills (he is 33-she is 18) and they have spoken very badly about my husband and myself. They have not spoken to us since the beginning of last year and have spread so many lies. We have been supporting them for years, you know-everyone wants to be good to family but when you start feeling and getting used it is a whole different story and people feel like because you have it you should give it. Well Spike has stopped giving and his brother has gone public with negativity not realizing it only makes him look bad. My brother and spikes brother can form a therapy group called freeloaders annonymous!

You can never do too much for your brother. Spike should advance the guy the money for the brother's portion of the land. Spike, Do the right thing!

hmmm, i believe that family of course have a significant responsibility to each other however in certain circumstances giving help isn't really helping. giving assistance to the degree that it becomes expected, and to anyone who believes that the hard work and good fortune of another belongs to them by some sibling right is a mistake. however i'm certain there are aspects of the situation we are not privy to.

Could not agree more 12:18. My brother and his girlfriend expected us to continue to pay their way and we also gave them a 90 day warning that we were tired of it and felt used-they can work, but when I had started paying cellular phone bills, buying tampons and giving money for the salon that is when we learned that we were being used by them. It started with helping them out then escalated into being their sole providers, we could never give them enough. I think maybe spike is going throuhg this and has had it . Because we have the money why should we have to pay for others. Helping every once in a while is fine but with family they expect it. My brother no longer speaks to me behind this.

Are you kidding? said...

it's sounds like you're better off. Fuck your brother's girlfriend's tampons.

Pleeze said...

I agree!!! SOme people, you can't give enough!!! Spike Lee has been a rich man for sometime now and I know he has probably given his family enough!!! Just because he keeps makin' money, doesn't mean he shouldn't stop giving it cuz people will suck you DRY.....especially family cuz they make you feel obligated! I have seen my mother in this situation and she eventually had to move away and cut everyone off to let them know she ment business.

Thank you Pleeze, i am the anonymous one writing about being used by my brother and his girlfriend and I had to actually move out of the state of alabama to get some peace. I moved to a suburb outside of atlanta 4 months ago and have been happy ever since. They dont know where I live and that alone makes me happy. I know that moving six hours away was severe but in the end it has given me so much peace.

Good for you anonymous 5:15, there is NO reason you should have to pay for the problems your family made for themselves. NO, I am not saying that you shouldn't help when it is NEEDED, but at the same time, I am not your mother, your father, NOR your employer, you can't take advantage of me just because I have and you don't. That's not fair. When we moved out of mama's house, that's when we were expected to fend for ourselves, and if we ever fell, THAT's when we asked for help and our family was there to help us out. You don't keep tripping yourself and asking ppl to pick you up and you KNOW you're gonna fall again! That is unfair, and it is not about the fact of you HAVING more and being stingy, it's the principle that you are willing to take advantage of a LOVED ONE so you won't have to take responsibility and that load of crap needs to be sent out to pasture cuz that's a BUNCH OF BULL! A TRUE family wouldn't put you in a position where you're forced to support them, they may ask for help, but they won't continuously place you in compromising positions. So who am I supposed to call on when I need help? Cuz it show'll aint' you!

Spike owes his brother nothing. Spike has his own family with a wife and kids and he's obligated to take care of them. If the land was left to the 5 kids, then it can't be that only Spike is blocking him from selling it. And he's a grown man who need to take better care of his own shit. Spike loves his brother enough to not be his enabler.

I know someone that use to date Spikes brother. She said that his landlord was always knocking at his door for rent payment. She also said that when Spike had his store that he would sell his own brothers t-shirts out on the streets and pocket the profits. I don't know if that is true but it it is that's foul.
