“I am not doing this to literally demonize Jonathan Plummer, but he is
an evil person to have done the things he has taken pains to achieve.
I loved him for years and did everything I could to help him evolve. The
reason I told UNEQ Magazine so many of these previously undisclosed
details is because he needs to be exposed to the community he is also
pimping. He forgets that gay men have sisters and mothers. And it is
because he doesn’t care, just like he doesn’t care if he ever goes back
to Jamaica. It is the main reason he went on television to announce
his homosexuality.He wanted the people in Jamaica to be embarrassed
and to hate him so that in the event that our marriage were annulled –
his goal was to use the self-generated hatred sure to come from Jamaica
so that he would qualify for asylum and be able to stay in this country
if his citizenship were revoked or in jeopardy. This is how slick he
is. This was the main reason he and his attorney went on Good Morning
America and leaked my so-called homophobic insults to the media and
included them in court documents.But the public had no idea of this
goal because the focus was on ‘Terry the Homophobic Witch’ and not his
theft, betrayal or deception. What was it that he gave me that would
make any man think that I should pay him spousal support? A grown,
healthy, gay man who was all of 31 years old? I did not rent a
husband. He tried to paint me as Mommie Dearest and apparently some
people bought it because he did to the gay community what he had been so
successfully doing to me for years and that was to play the sympathy
‘I’m-the-victim’ card.And he is certainly a very high-profile victim
who has taken every opportunity he could to take advantage of his
so-called victimization.”

“What I would really like UNEQ Magazine and members of the gay community
to be very cognizant of is what is it that he has done since he came out
of the closet that might benefit other gay men (and women) who are
afraid to come out? What kind of platform has he chosen to draw
positive attention to this problem?In every interview he’s done, not
once does he mention anything he’s doing to help other oppressed gay men
and women. Someone should ask him about this instead of always
focusing on me. I’ve done more and shown more support for the gay
community over the years than Jonathan will ever do.What is it he’s
doing besides getting a tell-all book published to draw attention to
himself with the hopes of making money and once again all by pimping my
fame?What has he done? Nothing. The gay men and women who are
still suffering in Jamaica have not benefited one iota because of him.
Quite the contrary.He gives gay men a bad rep as far as I can see.
But he thought everybody was going to love him unconditionally. And
look at what a spectacle he is making of himself and a mockery of his
sexuality, all for his own personal gain. He could care less about men
still in the closet.”

In this shocking no holds barred interview, Terry McMillan reveals some
never before discussed details of her marriage ranging from mass amounts
of money Jonathan was stealing from her private bank account to when she
stumbled upon a discovery that was so disturbing it could make any
parent go insane. Log onto on November 15th for this
never before seen interview!
