… Delonta has his thumb on you and his foot on your neck and you don’t know now. You got to tell him what I said and I said it because you won’t tell him that he’s responsible for this shit, that he’s wrecked your life. He’s caused you to lose job after job, he’s fucked up your credit, and you won’t turn him in…and you’re under the illusion that he’s your savior and he’s got his thumb on you and you take his advice. Go take it, um, but until you get from under the thumb of the devil…and tell him also he better not call my house or do nothing because I’m gonna call the police if I see him. He threatens me, I’m gonna call the police. If he touches me, I’m gonna call the police. If he does anything, I’m gonna call the police. Simple as that. I’m gonna have his ass locked up for as long as I can. That’s one way to get him out of your life. That way he won’t be around then to keep you under his control and make his…decisions. I feel sorry for you, really, for the kids, really, and for you. I’m not going to participate. I’m not gonna think about it, I’m not gonna try to strategize. I’m not gonna lift a finger. I’m not going to give…a penny. I’m not gonna make a, I’m not doin’ nothin’ and I’m not gonna call you. I’m not gonna come by your house. You can keep it locked up, I don’t care. I’m not comin’ by there. It’s a sad time when somebody you supposedly lovin’ and you have to lock the door and you equatin’ me with trying to destroy your life. Only thing I’m doing is helping you with your life, I enhance your life and you compare me with someone who destroy your life and continuin’ to destroy your life, this very moment is destroying your life. But it’s your kids that are gonna hurt and God doesn’t like that. You brought them into this world. They deserve more from you, you deserve more from yourself. But, anyway. I’m gone. I’m not gonna think about it anymore. I’m not gonna worry about about it like I used to, not gonna pray about it, not gonna do nothin’. I’m not gonna, you know I ain’t….You don’t even exist. Goodbye. Good luck. God bless you.

Clip 2

Uhhh, Donna. I read your e-mail and let me just say… [unintelligible] situation, it’s not one item. Here’s the thing that has to be done, if I were to sign this contract with you [unintelligible] but you [unintelligible] and I don’t blame you for it [unintelligible] if I sign this contract and you’re not [unintelligible] and we need more people than me contributing to this financial pot and I’m contributing to you and your labor but Delonta and others need to participate… [unintelligible] is not enough for what we need to get done. If I sign this contract and you don’t put together this support team to take the stress off me [unintelligible] and I want you to deal with every aspect of it as to why you shouldn’t go to a psychiatrist, why you shouldn’t have a support team, medical team, there’s more cognition of what you have now and look at all your medical needs [unintelligible] why you shouldn’t hold accountable the person that got you into this mess in the first place that’s the No. 1 issue, you acknowledge that he’s responsible for you [unintelligible] and um and why he shouldn’t have anything to do with your house-cleaning and your kids. You need to… deal with it. You ask on every point if there’s a stress-reduction program… you need to focus on the fact that the person who is responsible has to step to the plate or get the heck out the way of those of us who want to step to the plate. But I’m not gonna step to the plate as long as the person who’s responsible for getting you into this don’t step to the plate…

Clip 3

Uhhh, Donna, I just want to put on the record that Delonta has been threatening me [unintelligible] house and he said some threatening things to me. I didn’t mention it to you. I didn’t want you to get upset. He called me about a week and a half ago and made some threatening things to me and I told you how much I found degrading and you told me on Sunday about Delonta beat your ass, or kick your ass, so if he comes in here, the cops gonna put him out and if he refuses to go out, they gonna arrest him. I’m gonna be here. I’m gonna point him out to the police and I’m not gonna be in it. They gonna go over to him and tell him to leave. Alright? So if you want that kind of scene down here with you and with all your friends and the Chairman and Harry. I just told everybody. Harry said he would support me and he would tell the cops to put him out and he’s disgusted with you because you won’t try to save your life. Anybody I tell that to be disgusted with you. So wake up, Donna. Come down here and enjoy yourself. Let’s meet and try to resolve this thing. You don’t want to meet? I’m gone. You won’t hear from me again. I’m gonna call your mother after I send this after I send this, uh, e-mail out to you and starting tomorrow I’m gonna talk to other people about how you off on the deep end and you won’t save your life and they’ll talk to you because they love you like I do. Goodbye.

Clip 4

Hey Donna, I told you they were going to do that. I was down there watching when, uh, when you came up and you had your ID and [someone] said you couldn’t come in. Even if you had your ID you can’t come in, so don’t even come back down here because you part of this conspiracy to hurt me and harm me.

Clip 5

Donna, I told you I was going to, that I been threatened and I was gonna do something about it. You didn’t get in here, did you? You could’ve, but Delonta got up here, but he had to get his butt out of here. Police want me to file a warrant on you, but I don’t want to do that. And I’m not, you know, I’m not interested in doing any of that. I’m interested in my life and I’m interested in saving your life so I want to meet with you and negotiate some way that you can work on saving your life and not be threatened by Delonta. That’s it. As long as he doesn’t threaten me and etcetera, he be part of the solution. But I’m serious about this. I’m gettin’ ready to leave the situation, but call me and we can meet away from your house. I would suggest in a park or something and talk about this because I don’t want to do this but I will do it, if he…in fact he may not be able to go into a public building that I may be in because I might have the cops clear it…not something I want to do. I want to help save your life. So, call me.

Clip 6

Donna this thing’s gotten outta hand. That’s too bad. I don’t want to continue talking to you about anything and I don’t want to press no charges, I don’t wanna do nothin.’ I just want to be left alone and so you oughtta do the same thing. Don’t call me. [unintelligible] care about you. Don’t call me. I won’t call you. I won’t do anything crazy. I won’t call your mother. I won’t call any friends of yours or mine. I won’t do nothin’. Donna, watch right now. I’m gonna be off the radar screen. You oughtta take me off your radar screen. And you go about caring about yourself and you go about workin’. Put this to bed. You know. I’m not gonna pursue any charges. I’m not gonna talk to you anymore. I’m not gonna try and help save your life. That’s all gone. So let’s do that. Call me and tell me that that’s it and you’ll never hear from me again and, you know, never call me again, for any reason. So that’s what we ought to do. Because it takes too much energy to do this. I hated what I had to do tonight. That’s worked on my soul, that it would come to that, and so I’ve decided, I prayed on it since I’ve been [unintelligible] about an hour and a half. That’s not what we ought to be about. There’s too much love and having a history. So call me back and tell me that it’s, all over, that you’re not gonna do anything. I’m not gonna do anything. I’m not gonna badger you. I ain’t gonna leave no messages on the phone. Not out of fear. I’m not fearful of what you may do or what you may say because that’s the way I am. But I call upon your humanity and I call upon my own humanity to drop this and let it go and be busy about what you gotta do. Let me be busy about what I gotta do and we not talk to each other again. That’s all. Call me and let me know that you accept that and I will not ever call you and you shouldn’t call me and then we be alright.

Clip 7

Donna, you don’t have to answer your home phone but let me just say that I’m addicted to you. Don’t call me back. I will not take a call from you. I’m not gonna call you so this is it. Don’t call me back. I was trying to be amicable about it if we could. It’s not right for us to have gone through all this whatever…I do apologize to you it and I’m not asking you to apologize to me. I’m just gonna end it. I like to end it amicably like I done most of my relationships and you’ve done most of yours. So don’t call me and you won’t hear from me. Simple as that. And tell Delonta he don’t have to worry. He can go anywhere he wants to go, if it’s an affair down here at the Wilson building, he can come with you, without you, etc. and I’m not doin’ it ‘cause I’m scared. I’m not scared of shit. But I’m doin’ it because it’s right to do. God would not like for me or you to do what we been doin’. And I prayed on it and God said: “Stop it. Stop it.” And I’m stopping it. Thank you very much for all we’ve done together. I’ve appreciated it and, uh, it’s over, been over for a long time, but it’s really over. Thank you very much. Best of luck to you. Much success.

Clip 8

Donna, call me. I have an offer I been working on draftin’ saying that you know I ask you on several occasions …that I didn’t feel comfortable with something about that you said, didn’t feel comfortable…wouldn’t use the word threats…coming down here and when you did the security people were instructed to not let him in. And I like to apologize and settle this matter. It’s not anybody’s interest to continue to do this and…I apologize to you … for embarrassment… and that we both refrain from doing anything to frame or embarrass each other. Call me and let me know what you think ‘cause I’m ready to end all this and let it go. I apologize to you. I’m sorry. You know I love you and that after this we gonna go our separate ways and I’ll give up trying to help and…have a conversation. Call me.

Clip 9

Donna Watts? Marion Barry. As I mentioned earlier we gotta think about resolving this matter to everybody’s satisfaction and put it to rest because it’s not in either one of our interests or anybody’s interest to keep this stuff goin’. I’m prepared…to apologize [unintelligible] and Delonta. And, uh, so call me back. Please. On my cell phone.
