DeVante is So High Right Now


Former Jodeci member DeVante Swing caught drunk off his ass at Subway.

Last weekend DeVante stepped into a Subway sandwich shop for an early evening snack but he was so fucked up he could barely even stand. After stumbling around the store knocking over chairs and bothering a customer, police were called and DeVante was escorted out and arrested for public drunkenness. He was locked in the drunk tank for about 5 hours till he sobered up and was released. No charges will be filed.

And it was all on tape TMZ

Oh My!!! He had so much potential with his talent. SMH.

This was someone I'd thought I'd never get over; when Jodeci first came on the scene- I thought DeVante was the finest thing.

I'm OVER it.

Anonymous said...

Be compassionate to this young brother.
He's obviously having a difficult time with no longer being "famous".

Meanwhile those YT's over @ TMZ are laughing at him (and in reality US).

I don't think this is funny myself.

Say it ain't so, i loved me some Devante back in the day. He was the sexiest one in the group to me, his brother Dalvin coming in second. He fell wayyyy off. *Goes to youtube to watch Jodeci Cry For You and reminisce on the good ole days*

LMAO @BeeGee!!!!

its really sad.. people dont understand, but devante was robbed at gun point and raped by 2 men.. he has not been the same every since.. he has real issues- you should be praying for him instaed of condemning him

Anonymous said...

There is a story that he and another member of Jodeci was raped back in the 90's during the robbery. If this is true, it may explain all the addiction problems former Jodeci members are having. Don't judge them, pray for them.

About 3:27 and 3:55

How come whenever some "celebrity" who has screwed off their fame and fortune by being a dickhead, someone invariably passes it off to them having been "abused" or "raped" as a youngster?

How come no one ever knows about these "latent effects" until years after they have fucked over themselves (and usually a lot of other people) YEARS later.

I CALL BULLSHIT on the "he's fucked up because of child abuse" excuse.

Nigga is a fucked-up drunk asshole because....hes a fucked-up drunk asshole.

Case closed.

Right now, as we speak, I'm sitting here watching Oprah, who has on over 200 Men who were all sexually abused as children.....

81% of those same men have contemplated suicide.

So before you call someone a "fucked up drunk asshole" you should TRY to be compassionate to the fact that someone could have touched that person inappropriatly in one way or another, and now their anger is manifesting itself through substance abuse.

Peace

Yes, Devante was fine back in the day. Sad to see this is what's left of him. This is what fame can do to you, though, if you don't have a back up plan. Jodeci still gets the job done!!
A lil drank and some Jodeci and it's gone be a good night :)

JermaineHarding said...

DeVante was robbed at gun point and had guns stuck in his mouth and at his head don't know if he was raped but he was held at gunpoint. No one else from Jodeci was there K-Ci & JoJo drinking stemmed from they taking a drink and getting addicted but they clean now. DeVante also wanted that Jodeci album to be out sooner but their label were trippin now I see why they were signed with Interscope but they have that old friend that's been hating on them Troy Patterson you see him on the reality show in one episode disrespecting K-Ci & JoJo also K-Ci & JoJo would rather do things as a duo sometimes disregarding DeVante & Dalvin's feelings.

They did some Jodeci shows in 2009 then K-Ci & JoJo told them they wanted to focus on them not Jodeci you will see DeVante appear on the show and see if they really wanna do Jodeci. I pray he does stop drinking like K-Ci & JoJo maybe they want DeVante to get completely clean before Jodeci returns.

@3:27, Say what? This is the 1st i'm hearing this OMG! That's so sad. I loved Devante back in the day. That's messed up, why did the dudes have to rape them wasn't robbing them enough. My heart goes out to them even though it was a long time ago. Poor Devante. He was too fine back in the day, though i would've been too young to date him back then, i had the biggest crush on him lol. @4:33PM, I agree with everything you said. Some people lack compassion and can be real mean. Smh!

Anonymous said...

@4:33 Your right. You never know what going on in someones life or what happen to them as a child to make them act how they act as an adult. It's not just sexual abuse. DMX and Mike Tyson were beaten by their mothers and they just can't get it together.

Anonymous said...

@JermaineHarding

The story goes that Devante was at home practicing with a band member when the robbers broke in. The robbers weren't expecting anyone to be there. The robbers had been in prison and were committing rapes there. When they robbed the house and found Devante and his bandmate there, they decided to rape them.

Wanna bet? I will be the first to testify and say I got a "shotgun" years ago. For a few brief moments, I saw giant rats the size of a 5 year old run across the floor, I could hear every instrument and harmony in a song, and every thing looked far away. After that...came the laughter. My ass laughed for 4 hours straight! They took me outside without a coat to laugh that mess off...in the dead of winter. I stayed in bed for 2 days from sore abs. I can't (and refuse) to be in the same room with ANY weed.

There were rumors Suge sent his goons to do it. The incident happened in 93 and he was still cool with Suge after that cause they was talking to the cameras at Snoop's trial so I don't know maybe it was some random guys who did it but after that he wasn't the same he was paronoid and felt his artists were betraying him as well and that's another story on his relationships with Timbaland & Magoo Missy Sista Ginuwine Playa Suga with Tweet and the other girls. I know he waa dating Rolita who was in Suga with Tweet too

I don't know why some people that are down in the dumps resort to substance use and/or abuse as a means of "getting by". The entertainment industry is as fickle as it is unstable, so to have high expectations from something that can be so temporary and uncertain is just delusional on anybody's part; however, the last thing anybody needs to take on is a bad habit, and losing a career in the entertainment industry is not the end of the world, even though some people act like it is.

This video clip isn't funny at all. People need to steer clear of police at all times, as much as possible. Nobody would be laughing if he ended up like Oscar Grant or Sean Bell. TMZ is FOS. They're always clamoring to be the first to get the rights to others' misfortune out to the public, by putting it on the Internet or TV and making money off of it everytime somebody clicks on it, or clicks on an add next to it, or sponsors them so other people can watch it on TV. They're not slick. TMZ knows many people can't resist clicking on these things, so basically it's easy money for TMZ and cheap entertainment for everyone else.

Devante Swing was not raped this is how RUMORS get started Jodeci Fan since they were in Strictly Buisness in 1991, no other bandmate was there they took jewelry, tied him up and left, no rape, stop spreading rumors.

Anonymous said...

@10:51 I went to youtube and listened to some of their songs. I can't do nothing buy cry..this is sad. I heard Devante didn't trick Tim, Missy, Magoo and many of his other artist right. Damn, it must be a hard fall because ALL of them are doing better then him. Devante, I am definately cry for you!

bogart4017 said...

Just a waste. Everytime i see something like this i think of people like Frankie Lymon, David Ruffin, Baby Huey and all the wonderful black artists we lost to substance abuse. We were the ones who were cheated...

JermaineHarding said...

@12:06 AM You right folks making stuff up that Suge sent his boys to rape him I knew that wasn't true but he was robbed he never been the same since being robbed maybe they saw him having a gun stuck in his mouth as raped but no he wasn't he was just robbed and JoJo wasn't involved. Cause DeVante was at his house sleep when the men burst in not playing music.
