I'm not sure if you remember, but in 2010, transgender model and dancer Sidney Starr went and told the media that she had a sexual relationship with rapper Chingy after he took a picture with her at a concert in Chicago. When that story got out, it was not a good look for the rapper's career, no matter how much Ching-a-ling denied Starr's statements.
By 2012, Starr changed her tune though, apologizing and claiming that her entire story was false in a WorldStar video. However, Chingy says it was too little too late, and the damage was already done to his career. He lost a record deal and gained a bum rap. Chingy talked about this in a new interview with VladTV, but says that despite Starr's dirty deeds, he forgives her.
"I remember that day we when me and Ludacris had that show in Chicago. The promoter had some girl dancers on stage that were dressed in body paint, just for promotion, they were promoting whatever he wanted them to promote. And one who I thought was a young lady came up to me and wanted a picture. I just took the picture. I thought she was a fan. She seemed pretty cool. I took the picture, and that was it. Two years after that, I see something come out of some bull crap about this transsexual person was in a relationship with me. I was just like everybody else. I didn't have a clue at what this person was talking about.
