we truly don’t know people until a scandal about them erupts.
i always like to believe people have three sides.
The one they show the public
The one they show their close family and friends
The ones they show themselves when they’re alone
we look at social media posts,
and their intimate relationships,
and think that’s who they are.
everyone has secrets.
dr. kevin rome sr.,
the president of fisk university,
is another whose mask might have been yoinked off for 2020.
he finds himself in a weird alleged gay entanglement,
even while being married to a whole woman via “scoop nashville“…
A Nashville magistrate signed an order of protection against Fisk University President Dr. Kevin Rome, Sr. after a man claimed he met Rome via the gay dating app Grindr and testified Rome had drugged him, threatened to kill him and destroyed his apartment. Rome has been placed on leave from the university.
On August 7th, Magistrate Chris Hofstetter signed a Petition for Orders of Protection against Fisk University President Doctor Kevin Rome Senior. The petitioner claimed to be President Rome’s former intimate partner and that he was afraid for his safety. The order states that the pair spent the night together in May after hooking up via the gay dating app Grindr.
He also claimed Dr. Rome, who he knew as “Rob” showed up on his doorstep a week later on May 14th, somehow skirting security. The statement claims that Rome drugged him with Gamma-hydroxybutyrate, better known as GHB or the date-rape drug, before inviting people into his home for a night of drugs and sex. The alleged victim confronted Rome after noticing a closet belonging to his landlord had been broken into and some of his own possessions came up missing.
A man he recognized from that very night threatened him on August 6th with a message from “Rob”. The message warned the petitioner to “stay away from his people” and that he would be killed if he “continued to date black men”.
He also testified that the messenger confessed to vandalizing his apartment between June 14th and 15th. The vandalization included burglary, “homophobic things” written on the walls and sewage damage from the plumbing being sabotaged.
The alleged victim has been living in a hotel since his home was broken into and believes that President Kevin Rome’s motivation was jealously from him dating Rome’s ex. The order of protection claims the man is “terrified to leave” his home due to “the threat on my (his) life”. He swore to the fact that he believes Dr. Rome will kill him.
this is a very bizarre story,
but i have a few questions.
- They spent one night together and allegedly Dr. Rome went insane?
- Why did the alleged victim let this one nighter back in his spot,
bypassed their security,
allowed themselves to be drugged?
That is a cause for concern…
- They were allegedly dating?
It seemed like they fucked (maybe twice?).
And why would he “sleep with the enemy”?
- So this random dated an alleged ex and Dr. Rome went through all this trouble in a fit of jealous rage?
and notes saying “stay away from my people”?
In risk of ruining his career reputation,
and all that he has worked for?
this is dr. rome’s alleged grindr pic:
something is off with this story and i don’t particularly believe it.
Why would the president of a college move so sloppy?
it reads like fiction to me.
now am i inclined to believe he was on grindr?
this is not our first time at the rodeo in regards to stories like this.
see: andrew gillum.
in my head…
the accuser may have gotten a good smashing from a bbc,
found out the smasher was powerful,
smasher wasn’t interested in anything past that,
and the accuser decided to ruin his reputation.
this all alleged btw.
dr. rome claims all these allegations are false via “the grio“:
Jay Steed, who is representing Rome, said that Rome intended to fight the case in court to clear his good name, and thanked his supporters.
“It is important to note that these are merely civil accusations. Dr. Rome has not been charged with any crime. Dr. Rome is most concerned for his family, friends, and the community at Fisk University for any harm they are experiencing as a result of these spurious charges.
“He expresses his deepest thanks to all those who have reached out to him over the past few days expressing their support,” Steed said in a statement to News 4.
foxhole lets keep updated in this story.
i feel i’m right.
lowkey: folks are crazy af out here,
but this story is set up weird to me.
