Meagan Good’s Husband Comes to Her Defense + Minority Report Gets Rewrites

Devon Franklin Says His Wife is Free to Dress as She Pleases… Duh

2015 Essence Music Festival - Seminars - Day 3

Meagan Good and hubby DeVon Franklin were participants in the Diversity in Media, Television and Film Panel, which took place over the weekend at the Essence Music Festival. During a Q&A session with fans and the media, the couple once again found themselves fielding questions about Meagan’s sometimes provocative attire.

Franklin, who is a Sony exec and Seventh Day Adventist minister, quickly came to his wife’s defense, telling the crowd his wife is her own person and is free to do and dress as she pleases. “I don’t own her and she does not own me. We are together and I respect whatever she chooses to put on,” Franklin explained. “When I married her, I knew she was her own person. I said, ‘I accept you for who you are and whatever you choose to wear, that is your right.’”

Meagan and Franklin first came under attack from the religious community when Good wore a skin tight blue dress to the 2013 BET Awards, where she was presenting the statuette for Best Gospel Artist. When asked about the dress, Franklin said “I saw her before she walked out, and I said ‘Amen, praise the Lord [laughing].’”

After the panel wrapped, Meagan quickly hit up her Instagram page, posting an image of the two, with the caption: “That moment when your reminded how thankful & humbled you are by the reality that your man doesn’t desire to change you. He didn’t fall for who you could be one day. But is absolutely, madly in love with who you are right now. @DeVonFranklin thanks for making everyday of my life so much brighter.”

  1. Black Christians need to let that ish go. Christian women have been taught to be saints and be modest at all times, so when they see a so called Christian man take up with a woman who is anything but modest, they can’t help but feel some kind of way about it. But I ask, why must Meagan take the brunt of the criticism? I don’t hear people calling him out for marrying a so called loose woman while being a man of God. If Meagan ain’t right, neither is he. But it is my personal opinion that Meagan is a hot woman and God or no God, Devon was gon’ do what a man is gon’ do. Good luck to them both. They’re a lovely couple and so long as they make each other happy that is all that matters.

  2. Folks just never gonna let it go. If I was them I’d stop answering those questions. Until they put their foot down, ppl are gonna keep coming at them sideways. Meagan is a grown woman, she can wear what she wants and it didn’t take a genius to know that Devon damn sure likes it. He’s not a pastor and does not have a congregation. He’s not out there telling others how to live. And how did Meagan’s attire come into a conversation about diversity in the media anyway?
