[Blind Gossip] The thing that we dislike most about Slimy the Actor is the emotional blackmail that he uses to control his girlfriend, Poppy the Singer.
Yesterday, for example, Poppy was furious about the lies of an ex-boyfriend named Lucky… who just happens to be Slimy’s best friend.
Furious… yet she sent a nice tweet about Lucky. Huh? That doesn’t make any sense! Well, we happen to know who was really behind that tweet: Slimy!
Poppy was really angry about the lies that Lucky told in a recent interview. Why was Lucky telling people that he didn’t lose his virginity until he was 20? She knew for a fact that Lucky had had intercourse with at least five girls long before the age of 20! And so on.
Poppy started yelling by phone, by text, and by email, ranting (“That fucking liar! THAT FUCKING LIAR!”) to her friends and family and Slimy about how Lucky always lies about everything! He lies about her relationship with him, about his virginity, about his drug addiction, about his sexuality, about his girlfriend, about the sex tape, about the purity rings, about the Hollywood Records contract, etc. And, in this case, his lies made him look like the good guy and her look like a pity case and a negative influence on him. Why did he have to drag her name into this?
Poppy was yelling and crying and ready to ream out Lucky. Her friends and family agreed. Lucky had crossed the line and needed to be smacked down. One of Poppy’s family members jumped online and fired a shot at Lucky. Her tweet accurately reflected the feelings of Poppy and everyone around her.
And then Slimy stepped in.
Slimy told Poppy that Lucky was catching heat from people about his fake tell-all, and that Poppy needed to “back the fuck off.”
Poppy was appalled. How could Slimy be more concerned with supporting Lucky’s lies than in defending his own girlfriend? She refused.
Slimy then contacted Lucky, who subsequently called his manager and his publicist.
Did you know that Lucky’s father/manager and Lucky’s publicist are also Poppy’s manager and Poppy’s publicist? You do now!
Together, Slimy, Lucky, the manager, and the publicist quadruple-teamed Poppy into backing down. Yep, four grown men versus one young girl. They told her that she would look like a bitch and that she wouldn’t sell albums or books or concert tickets if she didn’t behave like the bigger person. They not only didn’t want her to say anything negative about Lucky… they wanted her to get online and support the very person who had just lied about her! Poppy, still hurt and angry, said no.
Then Slimy, the ultimate nasty manipulator, fired the final shot. He told Poppy that if she didn’t get on Twitter and say something nice about Lucky… he was going to break up with her!
Poppy broke down and cried. Then she agreed to publish the tweet.
How does Slimy get away with being such an asshole? He is older, colder, more confident, and very manipulative. Poppy is younger, more emotional, insecure and hungry for acceptance and approval.
We think that Poppy has the potential to be a very happy and very healthy person… but only if she is able to recognize that the company she keeps is a significant contributing factor that prevents her from healing and moving forward. We really hope that, as she matures, she will be able to break free from people like Slimy who pretend to be on her side… but who are actually emotionally abusive and damaging to both her person and her career.
Now we’ll leave it up to our readers to advise Poppy about what she should do. Yes, she’s reading your comments.
