Dee Barnes Facing Eviction


Four years ago Hip Hop journalism pioneer Dee Barnes was back in the spotlight after she was erased from the Straight Outta Compton biopic despite her notorious beat down by Dr. Dre [click here if you missed that].

Now Dee is facing eviction...
 
Dee Barnes has started a Go Fund Me page to help her out of her latest predicament.



Standing in our own truth not the expectations or definitions is powerful, and this is my TRUTH... Yes I did post the link to my PayPal, CashApp and GooglePay accounts asking for help because I am in the process of being evicted. And ...today my car broke down! Shout out to *Carlos* who helped me push it off the road to safety. Even though I am facing extreme financial hardship, I keep my head up πŸ‘‘. I know who I am, I know my worth and I know I'm not alone. Everyone is dealing with their own different struggles. Some of us less fortunate than others. It may sound cliche but things will turn around in your favor, this is the balance of life ups and downs, so stay strong, and count your blessings, not your problems. Thank you to everyone for your Love. ❤☝🏿✊πŸΏπŸ™πŸΎ 2/18/2019 www.paypal.me/sistadbarnes $DBarnesPIU dee_barnes@ymail.com

Call Dr. Dre and ask for some money.

Thing is, that business is only solid if a journalist has strong alliances. Whatever the genre, it is, and will continue to be very cutthroat. Mimi Valdes, dream Hampton, Kevin Powell, and other writers from that era have diversified into other areas. Though not the same situation but Ananda Lewis got out of media/show business altogether and is doing something completely different with her life. Not to be insensitive but that butt-kicking, as sorry and unjust as it was, should've been a signal for Dee to get into more stable work.

Why not just move to a cheaper place then beg or better yet get another job.
