Chingy Says Rumored Relationship With Transgender Model Sidney Starr Cost Him Record Deal

Chingy speaks on forgiving Sidney Starr, criticizes those who wanted rumors of his relationship with the transgender model to be true.

It’s been several years since St. Louis, Missouri rapper Chingy was accused of having relations with Sidney Starr, a transgender model. And during an interview with Vlad TV, Chingy revealed that rumors of his relationship with Sidney Starr injured his music career and resulted in the loss of his record deal due to the negative publicity.

He went on to criticize those who fell for a rumor that he says was created without not one piece of evidence and also spoke on those who wanted the rumor to be true.

“It goes to show you how many people wanted it to be true,” Chingy said. "That’s what it goes to show you. It goes to show you that that person who nobody knew had that much power to come out and say one negative thing about me and a whole mass of people just instantly took to it. And they didn’t have not one piece of evidence. Not one piece—a clue, nothing. They had nothing. They just had this person’s lie…It actually, it injured my career a little bit. I watched it happen. I lost a deal cause of that…It was said to me. Cause it was so much bad publicity around it…I’ve never been through a sabotage situation like that. And it was so fabricated and false.”

Prior to speaking on the backlash, which resulted from Sidney Starr’s rumors, Chingy recalled meeting the model/backup dancer at a show with Ludacris in Chicago.

“I remember that day we had that show,” he said. “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 that came up to me that wanted a picture—I just took the picture. I thought she was a fan. I thought it was a young lady who 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.”

In a video posted in 2012, Sidney Starr confessed to lying about her relationship with Chingy who she says she met merely as a fan.

“I wanna give a huge apology to Chingy,” she said in her video. “I’m very, very sorry Chingy for anything that I caused to throw dirt on your name…I met him as a fan because I was a backup dancer. Chingy didn’t know anything about me. Didn’t know my background. He didn’t know I was transgender. I just need people to know that the things I said about Chingy weren’t true.”

While speaking with Vlad TV, Chingy revealed that he has forgiven Sidney Starr in an effort to remain good-natured and good-hearted.

    Well to be honest I am a male and I'm not attracted to men at all but sidney doesn't look like a guy just being honest and if he transgendered then it means he doesn't have a dick but a fake pussy so tricking us you fuckers I want a 100% female damn doctors

  • smarten up

    only two people know the full story: Chingy and Sidney Starr. What's more jacked up is all these comments obsessed with other people's sex lives. How can some of you dudes be hating on another dude for being gay when you're the one giving a damn about his sex life. Really? If some other guy is having sex in a way you don't condone, who cares? You're not the one having sex with him. If this did ruin Chingy's career, you are all to blame because you are the ones who hold people's sex lives against them. If you wouldn't buy into that stuff, people couldn't be slandered in that way. Still, if someone's transgendered, that's on them. People have different experiences, and until you educate yourself about their circumstances, put a lid on it. We have more to worry about as a people.

    • Kungfoohustle

      We all know the real story now. This Starr person just confessed to making the whole thing up for celebrity. Where is the gray area or confusion in that? Starr is a low down snake in the grass either way. How do you destroy someone's life then go home and sleep at night?

  • Chingy Watched The Hood From A Window

    Is every St. Louis nigga suspect like Chingy?

  • P-Gunna

    I remember when it happened, I feel for Chingy. He seems like a good dude and I liked Jackpot a lot. That TS should be ashamed of herself for sandbagging a guy to get some fame.

    When you get screwed over like that, there's nothing you can do but just forgive and be humble. If you keep hate in your heart then it can destroy you. It sucks and I feel sorry for Chingy that people will try to assassinate your character like that

  • sam snead

    Just another pop rapper that we got the blessing to do without after awhile. It sucks that his career got ruined like that instead of him getting killed on the mic or the sheeple deciding not to buy and listen to crap music anymore but that would be too much to ask.

  • Franklin

    If Beyonce wanted me to do her in the ass, I'd gladly accept the offer. If a tranny who looked like Beyonce wanted me to do her in the ass, I would also accept the offer. That's all that I have to say.

  • snIPez

    Of course there is no evidence you fucking retard. Your career was over when you decided to use the name chingy. Say it 5 times. Lame. Lol at some hermi costing you that dough. Aw well. At least you got a yule log. Hahaha. Beggers can't be choosers.

    Let me get something outta the way, I like Drake. But I dont like how he acts like Jay-Z without putting out a 5 star and/or game changing album. I also dont like how hes a soft and corny person but acts hard in his raps; if he embraced his R&B singer/soft side from the start and made fun of it like Lady Gaga being a man and Seacrest being gay, then Id respect him more. If Stank Me Later was an actual rap album, where all the songs where as hard as fancy and over, Take Care was like the Love Below in that it was mostly an R&B album but only had 2-3 HARD rap songs (the ride, lord knows) and NWTS was a double album that had hard rap songs on the first disc (Tuscan Leather, All Me) and crooning R&B songs on the other (Hold on, Wu tang 4ever). If he did that, hed be my favorite rapper right now. But no, he wants to make money by shittily combining his talents instead of letting them grow individually. All I know is if K. dots new album is another classic and Drakes is another 4/5, the throne is officially kendricks.

    I'm sure his music falling off had a big part in that too. All that aside it's still a shame, even on a personal level that's a pretty heavy accusation & a hard piece of slander to do damage control on even if it is 100% fabricated.

    too many of y'all missing the point. He had a record deal and this n*gga posing as a woman slandered his name. Regardless if Chingy was hot or not, the point is it cost him.

    Erm.. When was Chingy ever big. Only joint I remember is Right Thurr which I did not like. Also Fuck the fag who commented below me talkin bout fuckin a transexual.. Fuck outta here with that gay shit. Hip Hop does not condone homosexuality despite Macklemore's efforts..

  • V-Nasty is God

    lol this nigga lying. His career was already done well before the whole Sidney shit happened. If anything, it brought his name back into the light. How else you think we can get a chingy story in 2014? btw i'm not looking for a deal so i'll admit that i'd fuck the hell out of Sidney Star. She looks like a (sexy) girl so that's all that matters. Half you insecure niggas on here trying to front like you wouldn't lol but I know. It's ok.

      Hahaha! You have a point. If you threw Sidney in that Man of The Year video and told me to pick out the trannies, I don't know if I'm picking Sidney to be one of those trannies. In all honesty, if I saw her walking down the street, I would think she was a woman.

      LMAO epic comment my buddy just went to Thailand, I wonder if he wanted to experience some tranny booty.

    • Brad C

      No doubt. I'd stick my dick in Sidney's booty and I'd suck her off. The fact is a lot of these trannys with fake asses and tits are hotter than most biological women. I'm attracted to hot extremely feminine looking women (with or without cocks) with nice curves. That ain't gay. Gay men are attracted to men. Most chicks with dicks are attracted to straight men. Gay men ain't watching tranny porn, it's straight men. Tranny porn has been the fastest growing type of porn every year for over a decade now. Straight men go to Thailand just to experience tranny booty. Hot trannys are okay with me. Women who doll themselves up and you don't have to worry about getting trannys pregnant. Trannys are the future, embrace it, get that tranny booty!
