LaLa Brown Killed (Updated)

lala brown.thumbnail LaLa Brown Killed (Updated) I hate to post horrible stories like this, but obviously I must. Yolanda Brown, better known as LaLa, is rumored to have been found murdered in a Milwaukee recording studio along with her boyfriend, JeTannue Clayborn. LaLa is the female singer featured on Lyfe Jennings hit single, SEX. LaLa and JeTannue were reportedly ambushed in the studio, robbed and then shot dead. Let me add that so far I cannot find a reliable link that actually says LaLa was killed and I got this story myself from a Janet Jackson message board. A quick search of other blogs only shows Sandra Rose to be carrying the story, but she says she received it in an e-mail. Lyfe Jennings’ official message board is also posting this, but they too have only heard the rumor online.

Update: This story is indeed true and the news article verifying LaLa’s death can be found-> HERE.

Thank you Jane for the link.

  3. DAT WA$ NOT HER BOYFRIEND..DAT WAS HER PRODUCER..AND DAT WAS MY BIG SISTER…MY BROTHER’S BABY’S MAMA…IMMA MISS U BIG SIS

  4. This is horrible. We have some demonic people in this world and that’s I’m glad these are the last days. I pray that thier in heaven. I also pray for thier families and friends too. Oh, and I also pray that the suspects will be found soon and will get the book thrown at them.

  5. Iyce Gutta–checking out their myspace page says otherwise.

  6. They all demonic and wicked. The way of the world is demonic and wicked.

    Cee

  7. Wow that’s so sad. This world is crazy. My prayers to the Fam. :sad:

  8. an other sista whom life ‘s been brutally interupted even the person i hate the most i never wished death on them r.i.p baby girl and her man too god will take care of whoever did that

  9. thats sad,all this violence needs to stop(i am from the Mil) but im talking about all over,its crazy how we(troops over in another country fightin for less violence over there when we got our own wars over here…..To take a life especially over some b.s like ex b/f/g/f is just petty…not only 2 ppl lose their lives over b.s but those that knew n loved them are affected(including LaLa’s daughter)but when they find out whose involved then theres going to be more affected…ppl we need to think about our actions and the reactions when we do things….Black ppl its time to wake up,and stop being protrayed as ignorant fools,cuz thats all the media is doing 99.9% neighborhood violence showed on news/news paper we are the suspects(dont get me wrong other races do it also)But you see us majority of the time..why cuz we dont take the time to think about anything,we robbing and killing for what nothing,just to be the next person they lock up in jail or in a body bag….this has really got to stop…….My prayers are with Lala and kool aid family and friends fans…..These are the last days hope that this open ppl’s eyes that tomorrow is not promised but God’s love is,as long as you’ll accept him as your savior….

  10. And we didnt hear nothing in the news because those are black people that do black music if one of those sell outs looking white wishing they was i dont know what you will hear it for at least a month that is so fucked up!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. That’s the reason why you can count me out when it comes to a black artist or entertainer out there that push their race in the back in order to get money no one gives a fuck about us but us time to realize that and wake up!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. And to think that she was actually trying to do something positive!! How many people in their 20s do you know sing such good messages like “S.E.X.” in this day and age? She looked so classy in the video and had an amazing voice, she had a God-given talent. It’s horrible. God rest her soul, and God rest the producer’s soul as well. I can’t believe this.

  13. The rumor is VERY much true :sad: I got teary eyed because that is sooo sad. Actually, its so hard to believe. She didn’t really get her chance to shine and I loved her in the Lyfe Jennings song. IMa just pray for better days cause I don’t know what this world is coming to. Thats just crazy. People can be so cruel. May God be with La La Brown and JeTannue Clayborn’s family and close friends at this time.

  14. Yolanda.. you will forever will be missed sweetheart..Sorry you had to go that way.. but any place better than here.. Seems like yesterday we was singin warm up in Mr. Roberts Class and then your dreams started to come so very true and now this.. Im sorry baby girl that things had to end up this way.. I love you and always in my heart! Praying for you and your family… Love always..Angela

  15. Prayers and condolences go out to this sista and Brotha’s families. when will the ignorance cease?

  16. PISSED OFF MOTHA

    God Bless the victims and their families!

  17. I am from Milwaukee and this story is true. She was young, pretty and on her way to become a star. My sympathy goes out to her family. RIP LA LA your music will live on and you are in a better place so shine for all of us!

  18. That is a tragedy. I was hoping for an album from her. People are dumb. Why would you not take life serious? And the fact that you think you have the right to take someones life is so crazy to me. It’ll never make sense to me.

  19. I’m here in Milwaukee, Yes this is all True. 2 beautiful lives cut short, LA LA BROWN a very energetic young lady with a beatiful little girl. This was a couple (yes i said couple) who’s future was in front of them. They not only knew what they wanted in life they went after it, that’s how you open doors. Then you have the hatters out here who most likely don’t know what to do with what they have taken. My condolences goes out to all family members and friends because this is truely a big loss. R.I.P LA LA & KOOL-AID.

  20. This is truly sad.

    What affects me the most is that she left behind a two year old daughter. How is that child gonna cope with out her momma! My daughter looks for me everyday and she’s only 14 months. So sad! God bless there souls!

  21. out of all people why did they have to take one of my favorite cousins we will find who did this and get R.I.P. Big cousin Lala Brown!!!!! :sad: :sad: :mad:

  22. this is so sad that LaLa Brown die

  23. dam that is sad that LaLa Brown die but the alone thing is that I do not know when she die

  24. :mad: Yes this story is very true. I am 15 years old, and i’m so tired of gun violence. It’s so big in chicago that people are marching with signs as i write. It’s upseting, black people are still killing eachother. I don’t understand how a human could be so cruel to take another life. This is getting out of control. It’s time for a change.

  33. Sha'Naynay brown

    i am very sad that lala brown and her friend died. i am very sad for both of the family and friend. for the poeple who killed lala brown her friend you are very wrong.

  34. First and Foremost R.I.P. to LaLa and the producer that was murdered. She left way to early and was a talented person i was really looking forward to hearing and seeing her in the future. my prayers,love,and heatrfelt thoughts go out to their families. This stuff makes me so mad it is happening to often in our black communities. PEACE AND BLESSINGS TO ALL

  35. I am so sorry to hear that this young lady was taken away from her child. Yes she was a wonderful singer but all I can think about is her daughter. I hope they get everyone that may have had a little bit of something to do with this and make them look in the face of the family members. God bless and be with the families of her and J. Clayborne.

  36. :stop: :hater: :bowdown: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: I know I didn’t know Lala Brown or the producer, but Lala was a blessing. I know she had so many dreams and things that she wanted to acheive. It’s such a shame that people can be so hateful towards people of their own kind. I only can imagine how her daughter will feel without her mother, her world. My neice lost her mother at the age of 11 months so I know how it feels to loose someone you love. The family has to be in total shock. I promise that when I become a proffesional R&B singer I will sing my voice out and represent for the young, beautiful, smart Lala Brown. She will always be remembered and never forgotton by the world. My condolences go out to the family. I didn’t know her personally, but from what I saw I loved her. R.I.P Lala………….. I love you……….

  37. I knew Jay aka Koo-Laid and met La La…Im from and live in Milwaukee and its just sad that believe cant live their dreams out. La La had concerts lined for the remainder of the year and now what. Milwaukee is real wild right now but no matter where you live this shit needs to stop!

  38. :bowdown: I am going to truely miss Yolanda, my lil God-sister and I want to say to other that it isn’t the city it is the heart of others. It is much hope and greatness in our city. The problem can be the unity in positive actions, meaning we are to have more positive events and share them with others. Kindness kills all. Church is where you can gain knowledge and began a form of unity. Stay out the damn clubs and other events that will not add to the greatness of your nature.

    I want everyone to understand that Yolanda is in peace. She lived everyday to the fullest. I believe she is please with what she have done and is truely closer to her daughter than ever. Know that what is good is what God loves. All things will come to an end but Yoland has set such a great youthful legacy for others with S-E-X. Remember to take heed of the message. Live and give back before you result to giving yourself up. That is sin and sin will caught up with you. Find a way of greatest, positive positions and ways. You keep that and know that it will have to began in the inside of you and the true blessing of great actions, words, ways of being is that others will copy, follow and adopt that nature. That is what have to happen that is been happening. Let just make it positive all the time or find the greater outcome of situations. I do plan to found an non-profit organization for the Youth that going empower the youth lives. Kids need to be kids! This is one of the up coming big thing. “Think” is the youth program for 13 years to 18 years of age, Think means “being capable of conscious thought, man is the only creature that thinks.“ Another companent that the community will be empowered by is “Courage” that will be a resource center for 18 years and older adults that will greatly support individuals to accomplish reachable goals. Being real is the quaility and Courage means “a quality of spirit that enable you to face danger of pain without showing fear.” Finally, a social establishment where others can network, collaborate with others and form great missions that will empower others. This companent is call “Nabob” The meaning of Nabob is “a wealthy man.” We all want to come to some great wealth in our lives and that Yolanda has done. She SONG GREAT SONG of what she wanted and have done great work for others. Wealth does not only dewell in riches but in health, mind, body and soul. Yolands had it all. God bless you baby girl and you know that I love you.
