Pleasure P's Molestation

Pleasure P, formerly of the group Pretty Ricky.

On Wednesday December 2nd, the singer, best known for his song Under, had accusations made against him by Laura Goldstein, the daughter of Anthony Goldstein, a previous attorney who defended him in a child molestation case in 2006, saying that he had never paid her father and that Pleasure P had threatened them.

She also claimed that the singer went to great lenghts to keep his family and his group members in Pretty Ricky quiet while he tried to launch his solo career.

The details are still a bit vague, but it appears that Pleasure P has some skeletons in this closet that his group Pretty Ricky didn't want to get involved in.

Despite Pleasure P's recent Grammy nominations, stories are coming out today that Pleasure P may have been involved in a child molestation charge against a member of his own family, and his former group members in Pretty Ricky seem to be backing up the accusations.

Pleasure P has not issued a statement on the matter. Meanwhile he was nominated for three Grammy Awards last night for Best Contemporary R&B Album, Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, and Best R&B Song.

Pleasure P has also not said anything on his twitter page.

However, his former group members of Pretty Ricky have not been as quiet:

"Unfortunately due to Pleasure P's lawyer filing an injunction against us from speaking, we are not at liberty to speak about the case," said the group on its website. "However we will let it be known that we did kick him out of the group, he did not leave on his own free will."

The alleged molestation took place when Pleasure P (Marcus Cooper) was 16 and he was left alone with his neice and nephew (so two children according to this source).
It states that he served 8 months in rehab and communitiy service.

As part of the plea agreement Marcus plead guilty and paid an “undisclosed amount” to remain free and have the records “sealed” and on the family level for them to remain quiet and not to speak publicly about it. The “sealed document” means nothing other than “we won’t tell anyone it’s here..but if they find it they can have it” basically.

As for Anthony Goldstein it appears he could be disbarred for this and his daughter Laura says:

"As far as my dad being disbarred. If they find out some of the things Pleasure P's new record co. had him do, they would disbarr him anyway."
