Barry, drama, a hotel room. Sound familiar?

LL has the tape recordings (with transcripts) detailing the depths of Councilmember Marion Barry‘s obsessive relationship with former girlfriend Donna Watts-Brighthaupt. You will also find a the complex story of their on-again, off-again relationship. This involves:

  • Barry kicking Watts-Brighthaupt out of his Denver hotel room during the Democratic National Convention after she refused to give him a blowjob.
  • Barry leaving voicemail message after voicemail message, including one where he says, “I’m addicted to you.”
  • Barry promising her money.

Judge for yourself who the unstable parties are.
