    We have no stake in this beef, but this messy story clearly demonstrates why we try to stay out of "The Scene" and keep our privacy intact.

    For those that don't know, LGBT blogger Funky Dineva aka Quentin Latham is a very successful celebrity gossip blogger who occasionally discusses gay issues as well. Most notably though, he often dresses up like this:

    Cross dressing aside, I can't deny that he has a huge fan base and works hard to maintain it.

    The same can be said for Michelle Brown aka ATLien, the blogger behind the "Straight From The A" celebrity gossip site.

    We here at Cypher Avenue don't get into the celebrity gossip thing. We prefer to discuss and promote real LGBT issues, topics and media. Having said that, we don't knock what they do, there is an audience for it and they provide content for that audience.

    Fortunately, we're just as competitive as far as page views go...as the Amazon.com owned website stat tracking site Alexa.com shows here:

    Anyway, Funky Dineva and Michelle Brown were real-life friends as well. She was also his landlord, renting out her midtown townhouse to him over the last 2-3 years.

    She says he suddenly stopped paying rent for 2 months and had to evict him. :rocks:

    Then she documented her tour of the property after he and his dog officially moved out:



    The video appears to show dog feces all over the unclean property. She starts crying and gives testimony to the camera about having to evict her friend whom she took under her wing.

    On her blog she claimed that the reasons for eveicting her friend surpassed just money. She claimed that Funky Dineva also had a drug problem:

    Of course, Funky Dineva had to create his own response video where he disputed the accusasions:



    He also detailed his side of the story on his blog. And when I say detailed, I mean it. He posts emails, text message screenshots and everything to show that while he DID have financial problems, he was communicating with Michelle Brown the entire time and she seemed to be okay with the delay in rent.

    So he caught up on rent...all was good...Until he was ALSO late on January's rent. So Michelle Brown sent this email to Funky Dineva, with her lawyer copied:

    Funky Dineva responded with this email, confirming that he was late again and suggesting that he will move out if requested:

    She filed another eviction in response.

    There's a lot more back and forth after that but basically he tried to pay her in payments, she took the money but never stopped the second eviction. After she claimed that the Sheriff would be by the next day, he saw the writing on the wall and rented a U-Haul Truck to move out.

    Admittedly, the main problem has nothing to do with the "Gay Lifestyle," this is a messy situation because the people involved chose to put it all on their blogs and social media.

    Even if @Ockydub and I had an (extremely rare and unprecedented) argument or falling out, the details would never see the light of the public because we're just not that type of people.

    To each his own though.

    "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". Has never failed me. His messy behavior is cause for Karma.

    I actually love him and a bulk of h is commentary, after muzzling out the drag queen/crossdressing theatrics, which is his celebrity attention grabber indeed. However, it's embarrassing for your business to be put on blast like that for the world to see, regardless of who you are. In regards to evictions, I'm glad I live in a state where the rental company/landlord is legally required to put your personal stuff in a storage facility or the city dump, so you can have some dignity prior to getting the boot....Jesus!

    I guess he needs to go back to the Accounting world to pick up some checks to keep his wigs laced and another place to rest his ass. Ain't no need to stunt and front (if this is all true).

    I mean, you can't build your career on airing dirty laundry and expect yours to be safe.

    And this is why I'm all for cremation. I don't want people going into debt/homeless to bury me.

    But it is foul to put someone on blast like that on the Internet.

    Good luck finding a new tenant if this is how you roll.

    So did anyone else notice that most of those boxes are the same and that it must've contained that denim blue shirt that's thrown all over the place? Makes me believe that it is a staged photo like Funky Dineva said it was. He definitely provided use with receipts in that entertaining 30 minute video. Man to have been one of the neighbors to witness this scene in the making outside of the home. At first I was inclined to believe she was sincere due to all of the things that were wrong inside the home. When he broke down the logistics of their friendship and how frequently she visited the home allegedly I'm further inclined to believe that she is who he says she is. Wow she messed with the wrong gay man in this case.

    She wanted to throw mud so he made sure mud was thrown... That's why you never try to knowingly hurt a friend when you've invested time and stock in you. They can hurt you badly.
