Rosemond Brown Apologizes To “Waakye” But His Response Leaves More Questions Than Answers.

Published

on

Instagram sensation Rosemond Brown finally apologized to Prince Yawson (Waakye) as she made a shocking U-turn on her earlier allegations which was; naming him as one of the people she slept with in the industry.

Nonconforming “Akuapem Polo” on the “Delay show” some weeks ago confidently posited that she had slept with veteran actors Waakye, Fred Amugi and some other prominent actors in her bid to earn roles in the movie industry.

Social media went avid as usual, but It’s obvious she had realized her mistakes and seeks to right her wrongs.

At a press Conference, Rosemond remorsefully made a U-turn and indicated that she said all that in order to be in the news. Interesting what she can do to trend Huh!

“I want everyone here to help me say sorry to my father here because I made some comments about him on Delay’s show. Everyone who knows me is aware that I’ve been in this industry for nine years, but I was not known so I now say and do anything just for the hype. I’m so sorry that I said all that,” the “Hype-drowned” Rosemond said.

Waakye who was present at the venue when asked how he feels about the whole scuffle responded in a way that made it obvious the two were involved somehow as he was tight lipped.

“Whatever she did, it was not as if she was telling the world I’m a thief, or I’m a murderer or I have forced something out of someone, there is this saying, a drowning man will catch at a straw, she feels this are the people I could use to get to the destination I want to get to, so if now she has realized and have come to apologies, who am I?” He quizzed as he accepted her apology.

Asked if there was any truth in the sex allegations, the veteran responded in a way that made me feel whatever the young lady said was true.

He swings over the question, saying, “I wouldn’t want to go there”.

Universal Jurassic World star Chris Pratt has been teasing plot details for Jurassic World 3, sharing that he was “blown away” by what they have planned.

Jurassic World star Chris Pratt has been teasing plot details for Jurassic World 3, sharing that he was “blown away” by what they have planned.

Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing respectively, and the film will be directed by Colin Trevorrow, who returns to directing duties after sitting out Fallen Kingdom.

So far details about the upcoming movie have been pretty scarce – but that didn’t stop MTV News from asking Pratt about what’s in store for Jurassic World 3 during a recent interview.

And while Pratt is still keeping pretty coy about the details, the actor did seem to let slip that the movie will feature a time jump and will also expand upon the cloning technology unveiled at the end of the second movie.

“I can’t say anything, but I can tell you when I heard the pitch, I was blown away,” he said.

“I can’t believe that we’re going to make that movie, and I can’t believe they found a way to deliver on the promise of the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

“Like, ‘Wait what? The island has blown up. The animals are out, we can’t put them back in the box. What are we going to do? How are not only these dinosaurs but this technology moving forward going to affect the planet?’

“We jump forward, and it’s like, ‘Oh! Oh, right! Oh, damn’. It’s going to be pretty epic… You will not be disappointed.”

Jurassic World 3 will hit cinemas on June 11, 2021.
