Less than two weeks ago Charlamagne Tha God was denying allegations from a 17-year-old rape case, and now he’s back in the hot seat for two audio clips that have recently resurfaced with him unfavorably discussing rape culture.
In one of the clips, The Breakfast Club co-host discusses getting a woman drunk and having sex with her while she was incoherent. The clip was floating under the radar until the self love ambassador Derrick Jaxn shared it questioning why no one else was discussing it.
😪… Since the 17-year-old rape allegation case popped up against The #BreakfastClub host #CharlamagneThaGod, a clip from a podcast he did a few years ago has started picking up heat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the clip, #Charlamagne admits to getting a woman real drunk and having sex with her while “she wasn’t coherent, but she was up.” He added that he and the woman initially had every intention on having sex. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Social influencer @DerrickJaxn has posted the video asking why there’s radio silence from his peers in the industry and in general on this clip. You can hear Derrick’s response on his page. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your thoughts?
In the second clip, Charlamagne talks about whether he raped his wife the first time they had sex. He admits she was drunk, but says she was participatory during intercourse.

This morning on The Breakfast Club, DJ Envy decided to phone Charlamagne’s wife, Jessica Gadsden, to clear up one of the clips.
Gadsden says Charlamagne did not rape her and that she was coherent enough to engage in sex their first time. Check out the conversation below:
There seems to be a mixed social reception to Gadsden clearing her husband’s name. Tweets and comments under the uploaded video suggest this wasn’t the allegation people wanted Charlamagne to address; however, there are some social users saying this is just an effort to bring Charlamagne down.
