Jaleel White Threatened to Fight JoMarie Peyton


JoMarie Peyton, who starred as Harriett Winslow for 9 seasons on the hit TV sitcom "Family Matters" recalls the time her teenage co-star Jaleel White tried to fight her... 

"There was one time he actually wanted to physically fight me," Payton noted, recalling the season 9 episode, "Original Gangsta Dawg," in which White also played Steve's "gangster" cousin, OGD. "[There was a scene where] I said we can't do that, standards and practices will not let that pass, it's not gonna happen. He wanted to do it anyway... He was so mad, he started kicking and screaming and stuff."
"He said something about, 'She must want to melee.' I said, 'What's a melee?' He said, 'a fight.' I turned around -- if he wanna fight, I would," she continued. "Darius [McCrary] grabbed me. I was gonna whip his behind."
With years of perspective, Payton said, she recognizes that White was "just a kid" at the time and doesn't give him "all the credit" for his behavior.
"I give some of those adults credit too," she added. "Letting him run wild and do whatever he wanted to do, thinking he can say what he wants to say, you know, and hurt people's feelings and all that."

So I just looked up when season 9 aired and it was 1997. This mf was 21, not a child. He would have caught hands AND feet.

He's one of those typical child star brats and an even bigger asshole adult! I've always seen him give off diva behavior even when he was younger. He's rude to press and blows up when things don't go his way. His parents created that monster!

Welp, in about 25-30years, he's gonna be all over daytime TV...advertising Medicare Advantage programs. Just like another goofy sitcom character actor from the 70s.

I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…
:)
AND GOOD LUCK.:)
