Teddy Pendergrass

has been hospitalized in Philadelphia for the past month and in a statement to the press said, "I wish to thank my fans for their prayers, concerns and love. While I have faced recent health challenges, I am in the care of my wonderful doctors, wife Joan and family."

In 1982 Teddy Pendergrass was left paralyzed from the waist down after crashing his Rolls Royce into a tree. There was a bit of a scandal [but not much in those pre-Internet days] surrounding the crash because the other passenger in the car was a transsexual nightclub singer named Tenika Watson.

@ 10:08 probably if he was stalking superhead as she claims.

The crazy shit is they don't want to release what His "health challenges" are.

You know what that means = Monster

@ 10:12 Damn I never heard that, if wife stood by him then that might be true. I can't see her staying if he really was doing a man, but women have stayed through worse.

Niggas was fuckin' trannies way back in 1982? Deezamn. And I thought Eddie Murphy started that shit. Mah bad, he was just "being nice to them and giving them rides"

DaShit said...

that damn Teddy was so sexy in concert, women would throw their panties at him on stage.

YES - it was Dr. J's first wife whom was scared of being caught with Teddy.

her name was Turquoise Erving

google image her picture.

Wild Safari said...

Turquoise? I've heard Dr. J's wife was in the backseat and the tranny was in the front. Who the heck knows what was going down in that car. Toxicology reports said he wasn't drunk or high so SOMETHING distracted him.

i remeber my aunt cryin back when this hapened; she was teddy crazy.

F Dr. J! used to like him until he denied his illigitamate daughter (lowly lowly ranked pro tennis player A. Stevenson)in late 90s/early 00s.don't even think she plays anymore

Teddy was driving with two people in the car. He dropped of a woman at her home, then had an accident with the tranny in his Rolls Royce. He had just gotten the car out of the shop for the same problem that caused the accident. He sued Rolls Royce and they settled out of court while Teddy was in the hospital. I didn't hear about the NBA wife, but Teddy had an affair with Janis Hunter Gaye while she was still married to Marvin Gaye.

Turqoise Erving was in the car. Accident time, she was gone.

Well not every man has the skills to handle a blowjob while driving. and depending on how good a blowjob that was, even the most experienced driver would have enough sense to pull over while his toes are being curled and his body going through spasms.

I wonder if he was getting some of that Charles Barkley "best head in the world" at the time.
Speaking of Sir Charles,driving drunk and running red lights, this could have happened to him.

The age of Dr.J's daughter, year of the accident, and the things you HAVE TO DO to become Famous. So of these Celebrity and sport stars Have to PROVE them self in order to keep the CASH flowing. Check out Black Masonic Celebrities and Black Celebrities WHO SOLD SOULS on YouTube. Most of your film stars have to wear a dress, play a GAY role, or perform a HOMOSEXUAL act to make it in ENTERTAINMENT OR HOLLYWOOD. Think it over and observe people.

You people are idiots. None of us were there when this accident took place. And what makes you young people think that freaky sex started when YOUR young azzes figured out what freaky sex is? Its lotsa shyt been going on for many, many years. Grow up.

If think that Teddy Bear's (LOL) tranny-gate scandal wasn't a big deal, then you must be white or too young to remember it.

Well I heard too from one of my dad's former police friends that their were three people in that car that night,and that third person was Turquios Erving, wife of then superstar NBA legend Dr. J. heard she was banged up pretty bad and whisked away from the scene by former disc jockey Hy Lit of WFIL, mind you All Phila. was in love with the Dr. and he was a great player & well respected on and off the court, however his wife was known a quite a superf____ (draw your own conclusions). Also it was reported way back that prior to Turquios dating Doc, she was reported to have been dating TP before Dr.J, hmmmmmmmmmmm. IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE SOMEONE CO-SIGN WITH ME HERE!!!

Heard that TP was knockin' the back outta MG's wifey too, on a regular, in fact I read that he was so busy runnin' up in EVERYBODY'S chicks & wives back then, he wasn't watching his $BREAD$ and cats was gittin' 'im- robbing him blind.

RIP Teddy your voice will live on we love you-Philly and beyond,

It happened on a Tuesday. I was living in Dallas where his last performance was. I'm a retired athlete. What we were told has that Turquoise Erving was in the car with Teddy and the transsexual Tenika Watson was riding with the Doctor in a car following them. Julius has long to have been rumored to be in the closet, in fact another retired athlete in California actually has a picture of him sucking another man at a cocaine party back in the 70's. Supposedly he and Turquoise would show up together at parties back then and split up once they got inside. Sex and drugs were the norm back then with professional athletes even more so than they are today. Turquoise and Tenika swapped cars to keep down a major scandal that would have ruined Teddy and Julius.
