Mychael Knight

Project Runway finalist Mychael Knight has died at age 39. The popular fashion designer died on Tuesday, Oct. 17, in Atlanta surrounded by his family and friends, according to Obviousmag.com.

Knight, who was born in Nuremberg, Germany, and raised in Montgomery, Al, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Apparel Design and Merchandising at Georgia Southern University in 2001.

Mychael Knight

He auditioned for Project Runway twice — in 2005 and again in 2006.

Though placed third in the competition in the show’s third season, his charming personality and edgy designs earned him the Fan Favorite Award.

Knight launched his label, Mychael Knight, on BET’s Rip the Runway. He went on to design custom tees for Starbucks and he regularly dressed Atlanta strippers and other socialites in his custom designs.

His last television appearance was on Project Runway: All Stars in 2013.

    You know what happened.

  • IntroSpective

    Man, I loved him and his designs. He was definitely one of my favorite designers.

    awww man, this so sad. 39… life is precious y’all. RIP to this talented young man, smh

  • Luv Pitties

    Sounds like it especially when they are hush hush about the cause. I remember back in the day they used to say pneumonia was the cause of death when people had the CS special.

  • KcoolMuziq

    STOP with the false nasty rumors. He had been suffering over the past 5 years with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS),

  • FallenOne

    really? that thing? im wondering why so many after medications can help?

  • Django the God

    SMH LOL

  • Django the God

    he regularly dressed Atlanta strippers

    __________

    You couldn’t have called them dancers…

  • RealATLPeach36

    Yes, Pneumonia does kill when you HIV/AIDS due to weak immune system. What I do not understand is why did this happen, considering that there is medicine out here that can help…people live “Magic Johnson’s Years”.

    FYI Secretly I do not think he has it anymore….There is a cure for AID, Cancer etc… but they must kill off the……..

  • Mischelle

    I’ve never heard of anyone succumbing from IBS.

  • Tammie Reed

    May he RIP!

  • KcoolMuziq

    Well now U have. Smh

  • Wreckognize Game

    He was a great designer. RIP Sir

  • RealATLPeach36

    Another thought SANDRA ROSE HELP ME. Okay…you get HIV

    1) Why not expose the person who is spreading it.
    2) Let’s say they took money and signed a gag order, at this point you’re dying why not expose them…
    3) Really how and why people are dying of HIV AID 2017?

    The Gov’t not going to give you a cure but they will allow you to live…

  • Faithz

    Gone so soon, RIP.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Toni and Birdman secretly married?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    It’s been said that he recently checked in to a hospital, due to stomach pains; which could indicate anything from an upset tummy… to an infection… to a heart attack.

    Given the fact that he was presumably gay, I wonder if his death is AIDS related. People are still dying from this disease, but the media and the family members of the dearly departed, do everything they can to sweep it under the rug.

  • Salliemae’s Boosh

    rest well young man.

  • klwbaby

    I think Magic still has HIV but the reason it seems he is doing so well is that his doctor was one of the doctors that came up with the HIV AIDS cocktail of medication.

  • country57

    yep!!!

  • Chocolate

    Yes while promoting how long u can live with it now. They neglect to say the most effective drugs cause diarrhea, impotence, and a host of other daily side effects that really affect your life. I think it’s irresponsible.
    I lectured to a group of 25 yo and under, one wore diapers smh.

  • Chocolate

    Idk what happened to him for sure, but chronic IBS is a side-effect of some of the HIV meds.

  • isaiit

    He died from complications from IBS he had a terrible case… you can read his own words on theybf. com

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO omg!!

  • isaiit

    He didn’t die from HIV he died from complications of a severe case of IBS

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    IBS is not fatal.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Rest in Peace Michael Knight. You are going to be missed.

  • hottlanta

    I find that discriminatory. I had a brother who was gay and he died in his sleep. We went to bed and never woke up. Heart problems run in my family. If I mentioned he was gay and died the first thing people assume that it was AIDS we lying and the family don’t wanna talk about it. Gay people die from other diseases like everyone else. I don’t care if he is gay or not a person death is nobody’s business and people have their right to privacy.

  • isaiit

    That’s why I said complications… any who you can read it for yourself… most of these sites aren’t publishing the full story

  • SummerBaby

    RIP! ??

  • hottlanta

    Why not a cold and flu is fatal why can’t IBS be fatal. Stop trying to say he died from AIDS because he was gay to make it legitimate. I can stomp my toe and get infected and die from that. Just because you took one course at Everest Institute doesn’t make you an expert. Let him die in peace.

  • isaiit

    He did not have HIV anyways so her whole comment is off base. I believe half these sites only posted a partial story so people would assume that’s what he died of. I’ll admit I did until I read the whole story.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I agree. Gays are just like everyone else. We die for a multitude of reasons. However, being a sexually active homosexual, comes with certain health risks that can contribute to an early death.

  • hottlanta

    Like being a sexually active heterosexual doesn’t come with certain health risks that can contribute to an early death. None of us are safe. Diseases doesn’t discriminate. I will never be that ignorant.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    FYI: people with HIV/AIDS have a higher risk of intestinal infections and tumors.

  • hottlanta

    No wonder he took that gold outta his mouth. He looks a lot better. At least she ain’t having no more babies.

    ?what??! For real??

    FROM VH1 STYLE

    Celebrity fashion designer Mychael Knight passed away early this morning, according to The Jasmine Brand which reported the news exclusively. He was just 39 years old.

    Knight jump-started his fashion career by interning for Atlanta-based Wilbourn Exclusives in 2001. He then became self-employed as a fashion stylist until being casted on Project Runway season 3 (2006) where he wowed the judges with his amazing knack for evening wear. Knight placed 4th in the competition, but stole the hearts of viewers everywhere as proven by him winning the Fan Favorite award.

    After wrapping with the show, Knight went on to work on his premiere namesake line Mychael Knight, and has dressed A-list celebrities like Khloe Kardashian, Jennifer Hudson and Taraji P. Henson. His designs have also been adored and worn by Love & Hip Hop stars like Trina and Olivia Longott.

    One of Knight’s longtime clients, Towanda Braxton, took to Instagram to speak on the impact he had on her family and the fashion industry at large. “You were the FIRST designer to dress us for #BFV [Braxton Family Values]”, she wrote. “The fashion world will not be the same without you.”
    There are currently no details surrounding the cause of Knight’s death.
    ____________________________
    oK, I’m gone for real this time. I just had to come back when the write up didn’t list his A-list clients.
    Good Night.

    Oh no so young and so handsome, RIP fella, condolences to his family, may God get them through this

  • 2telldatruth

    Wait a minute I have had IBS for over 20 years now. You mean to tell me it can kill me!!!! WTH!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I don’t know any straight people who engage in orgies in public parks, restrooms, and bathhouses. I have never met a straight woman who has sat in a public restroom and sucked a fleet of random d/ $ks in one afternoon. When it comes to risky sexual practices, gay men are off the charts.

  • 2telldatruth

    This is true, and most if not ALL persons suffering from HIV/AIDS are known to go to the dermatologist and the GI doctor. That’s a fact.

  • NeverSurprised

    Awful news. He seemed like such a nice young man when he was on PR. Very talented. His memory will live on through his beautiful designs.

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Solstice

    I agree. Let him Rest In Peace but IBS is not fatal. I just went on to https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov and webmd. IBS is not a fatal disease however I pray for healing and comfort for his family during this difficult time. ????

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    In the 80s, during the height of the AIDS epidemic, I knew countless gay men who died from “cancer,” “heart attacks,” and “strokes.” What their families failed to disclose, was the fact that their conditions were AIDS-related.

  • Evillene

    the debilitating effects of HIV/AIDS are more easily managed by medication today. There are people well into their 70s living with full-blown AIDS due to advances in medicine and treatment. Young people in the U.S. succumbing to AIDS-related complications is rare in 2017.

  • PROPHETMAJOR

    Very sad day?

  • 2telldatruth

    Whew!!!! Thank you for posting that because I was out here googling that information too! I know the pain can become so severe that it feels like I’m dying sometimes but I had not heard that it can result in death.

  • Meme

    Just as an aside im not applying this to him but it really does shock and amaze me how many people are still so ignorant to it, in fact scratch that not just young people but older people too …just shocking

  • hottlanta

    Straight people have sex with dogs, donkeys, horses and sheep so what makes you think they wont do the sex act you described above. it is a whole world outside your little world.

  • Renee26

    RIP He had some really nice pieces

  • Solstice

    I just saw his post detailing his struggle with IBS. His family didn’t state what he passed from and I agree it’s not fair to speculate.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Oh no! This is so sad.

  • shun king

    you sure about that a lot of young people in denial don’t take their meds and die quickly from AIDS

  • Gamer?? Chick

    So young RIP. Died from what though….

  • 2telldatruth

    He may have gotten some kind of GI infection and if you don’t get treated in time for some of those they can be fatal. Now it is possible that he may have believed his intestinal problems were just IBS and waited too long to seek help. This happens everyday. People also drop dead everyday young and old from unknown and undiagnosed medical problems.

  • Solstice

    I’m sorry you have IBS. A friend of mine has it too and she said it is awful!! I’m not a health professional and I do not know what other complications or illnesses come with it but from the websites mentioned above, IBS is not fatal. I’m sure you’re more familiar with this disease than I ? Any info you have please share ??

  • shun king

    surrounded by family seem like it was something slow they knew about and was prepared for. not releasing the reason says a lot

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    There’s a resson HIV/AIDS spread like wildfire through the gay community. There’s a reason men who have s3x with men are still contracting STDs and STIs at an alarming rate.

    All you have to do is visit any gay hook up site and you’ll see what I mean.

  • Solstice

    Wow ? I saw he started having some of the face tattoos removed as well…whew chile okay then Toni

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I know someone who has full-blown AIDS. He has been on meds since the 90s. His legs are covered with unsightly lesions, and he is constantly battling pneumonia and bowel infections. People respond differently to medications.

  • FallenOne

    true but why did you feel the need to reply with that instead of just understanding and excepting his statement? its like your reiterating the myth he is educating us against.

  • SumthinSweeter

  • Desiree Edwards

    May he rest in peace, he was creative and had God given talent.

    Diseases like hiv/aids do discriminate to a certain degree. This infection is easily spread by blood and tears in the rectum due to anàl sèx. The vagina is thicker and self lubricating so it poses less of a risk factor. Facts are facts. Unfortunately ppl are given false information or they just don’t care enough to protect themselves and others. I’ve lost someone dear to hiv/aids and I know they would be alive today had they not caught this man made disease. I have no judgments as I have my own issues.

  • SumthinSweeter

    wow. that is so f-up’d. smmfh.

  • Guest©

    Thank you. I had a dear friend who for one of his birthdays had random *raw sèx with over 50 men in one night. I pleaded with him not to do it but his mind was made up.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Every time this subject matter comes up, I feel like I’m back in the 80s. Denial. Denial. Denial. Don’t talk about it. Change the subject. Become defensive. Repeat.

    I watched a lot of great people die, because no one, namely gay men, wanted to be held accountable for their actions. There’s a video on YouTube, shot in the early 80s, documenting a meeting between city officials and local homosexuals. The city told them that they had proof that bathhouses were a breeding ground for HIV/AIDS infections. The city wanted to shut the bathhouses down. In response, the queens went nuts! Yelling and screaming, calling the officials homophobes.

    So, the city caved and the homos won the right to die a slow, painful death.

  • jazzysmith12

    exactly

  • Dee Moe

    He had IBS not AIDS. It’s not cool to insinuate this about the brother.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    As a homosexual, I’m not preaching from the sidelines. I’ve been in the game since the 80s. I know what this “lifestyle” is all about.

    Most gay men are delusional and suffer from arrested development. They romanticize and glamourize a way of life that has no boundaries, no rules, and no regard for their health or anyone else’s.

    I have told this story before, but I knew a guy who used to put slices of bread in the urinals at public restrooms. Once the bread was nice and soggy, he would eat it. ?

  • Guest©

    What about the new epidemic, anal cancer. Due to political correctness you can’t even state facts anymore. The laissez faire attitude that the youth have about HIV today is frightening.

  • KcoolMuziq

    But who said Mychael was gay?

    A friend once said, you can’t catch AIDS, as long as you shower, frequently. Some people will say anything to avoid the truth.

    No one dies from IBS.

  • Guest©

    I’m glad you acknowledge what it really is. I was in show biz yrs ago and lost many dear friends due to promiscuity which lead to HIV. I was young and couldn’t understand the gay male psyche. I’ve tried in vain to save many but I’ve learned some ppl sadly have a death wish. I’m mature now so I try and be as realistic as possible. Something, I don’t know what it is but gay men are extremely promiscuous, not all but… Please stay vigilant. It’s real outchere.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Most of the gay men that I knew, who died from AIDS, were bottoms.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    I have Crohn’s disease and right now I’m
    having some issues…. I don’t believe that the problems I’m experiencing HIV/AIDS people experience. Mine is mostly inflammatory where the bowel is attacked. I think people with HIV have problems with their meds and it affects their digestive system. ????? I could be wrong! The doctors originally thought I had IBS, which I don’t think can kill you!! It’s totally different from other digestive diseases, IBS mild in most cases in comparison.

  • Yoni7

    I remember his coffee filter dress. Damn.

  • Rayne

    Dang rip I like him.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Dang, I don’t poop for 2 days if I don’t eat enough veggies. I didn’t know it was so fatal wow. The doctor just gave laxative. Unless it’s another bowel problem he had

  • Guest©

    I assume my friends were bottoms but some were verse. I often wonder what some of them would be doing had they lived. There were some of the most talented ppl I’ve ever met. I actually lost a friend in HS due to HIV. He got it from a much older man. I get mad to this day when I think about how that older man took advantage of my friend.

    Gay men are promiscuous for two reasons: their lives are void of any real meaning and their internalized self-hatred fuels their self-destructive behavior.

    When someone over-eats, they aren’t hungry in the literal sense, but they are eating to fill an emotional void. Sex is another means to that end.

  • Guest©

    That’s what I’m said. I’ve had it since childhood. No doctor has ever told me it will shorten my life. I watch my diet as I know which foods are my triggers and keep Imodium in bag at all times, lol, smh.

    Sounds like he had a mental illness but if I said being gay should be classified as a mental illness I would be run outta town.

    I feel for you. I have IBS and i can’t imagine having Crohns disease. Do you have trigger foods or do the episodes come on spontaneously?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Hey, I am gay, and maybe it is a mental illness. However, homosexuality occurs in other species; which leads me to believe it’s a natural phenomenon, but if it is a mental defect, I have made peace with that.

    Let me help Sandra out, before she throws more shade at a person that is no longer with us.. according to tmz, he died from intestinal issues. Who knows though.

    When I was 16 and fresh on the scene, I met an older gay man that everyone called, “Steak Mama.” Initially, I turned my nose up at him, because I assumed he was trying to get in my pants, but all he wanted was to share his wisdom and help me avoid the pitfalls of a lifestyle that I was completely clueless about. His conversation changed and possibly saved my life.

    I don’t think people are living into their 70s with full blown AIDS. The immune system is destroyed and so they’re vulnerable to any and every disease. If they’re HIV positive, medication can keep the virus under control. Be careful about the information you spread. There’s a difference between being HIV positive and having AIDS!

    You should watch this show on Daystar Jonie lamb they had all these gays & transgender. It was beyond heart breaking. It gave you a better understanding. Just about all of them was molested. Seeds were planted in them from when they were children & had them messed up adults.

    My mom’s aunt (my 2nd Aunt) and her husband died of AIDS. This was roughly 20+ years ago (90’s) and although every one in the family knows, til this day it is not a topic of discussion. Smh. It’s just one of those unspoken knowns.

    I definitely can relate. I know ppl who died of Aids but their family only mentions the opportunistic infection that they succumb to. It’s just sad that ppl are still getting infected because they refuse to be responsible. I’m dating at this point in my life but if I do decide to have sèx you better believe it with be with a condom. Look at herpes which can be spread even with condom use.????

    ok so @mr.lebrickjames say he said he was straight

    Sadly you are correct. As you well know viruses adapt and become more aggressive. I pray this new strain will not repeat the tragic 80’s again.??

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Yep they have to make more money HIV had started to get under control and folks started finding out if they take prep and the ppl who are positive had started getting their numbers so low it can’t be detected with normal testing and dropping down to taking less medicine then BAM here’s a new strand we need more money to fight this now it’s sad how this process works.

    Check out Vanzant series now. I cried when the men were telling their stories about their rape. One guy said he was raped by his own brother and mom said/did nothing. One guy was raped by an older male member of the family and it goes on and on. Kelly Price said she was raped by her aunt. But the LGBT community said that gay men/women are not predators. Even Milo as crazy as folks thought he was but he exposed an inclusive organization that have sex with young boys. That is why they he haven’t seen since, they have silenced him. Just like the LGBT community said we need to let men be themselves so they won’t have to be on the DL they need to take that same rule and they themselves needs to allow men to tell their stories about being raped by other men. Can’t have it both ways.

    No one. Most people don’t seem to be relationship or marriage material. Most of these dudes, gay or straight, are looking for help. I don’t think many people even seek love anymore, they just need money, shelter, food, or sex, which leads to them spreading all kinds of diseases. Very sad. Being single seems best nowadays.

    Waste of time. If you date online you either meet people who don’t want to meet or when they do, they’re on some bullshit and need financial help or a place to stay or they’re married. Ridiculous. I have yet to meet a single man that’s not trying to use a woman for something whether I meet them online or out in public. I’m wondering where these men are coming from that don’t have a permanent place to live, like what the hell were they doing before??? SMDH!!!

I’ve had it with lying ass married men and these lowlife broke niggas that want to use women for sex, money, and shelter. I have never in my life!!! I don’t go around looking for men to pay my bills so why the hell do these sorry ass dudes feel the need to leech off of a woman??? It’s sickening. I guess finding a single, kind, decent looking man who is not a psycho is too much like right. SMDH! I’m happily single now. Hell, the best adventures I’ve had in life have been on my own, but they changed my life. Live your life and make your own dreams come true. Leave the trash in the dumpster where it belongs!!! Most of these niggas belong in the sewer in NYC with the rats!!! Sad.

    Lawd. I was just telling my mom about that, she was just shaking her head. I told her she would not believe the number of men I have met that need a place to live and I’ve talked to other women who say the same thing. It’s pathetic. The last guy I met months ago was this good looking Asian guy, he seemed charming at first. Then he told me his lease was about to be up with his roommate/landlord and that he needed a place to stay. Had the nerve to ask me if he could stay with me in a nasty tone. The f*ck??? I wished him well and told him goodbye. I am not the damn Marriott. These dudes need to just live in the homeless shelter or under the bridge with the rest of the bums.

    The 80s were some wild times. There was no such thing as hiding behind the internet. You had to meet people face to face, and in doing so, you often encountered people who shattered your preconceived notions of sexuality and normalcy. Some of the best conversations I have ever had, were with complete strangers who bared their souls to me.

    These days, things are more underground. People aren’t as honest about who or what they are.

    Very true. I live in ATL, and I don’t think the ratio is actually 10 to 1, but I’m sure it must feel that way for a lot of sistas here. I work for a good size company, and in the 30-50 age range, I’d say easily more than half the white men at my job have on wedding rings. Among the black men, I’m one of the few. It’s like marriage isn’t much a priority for most brothas for some reason.
    Honestly, ATL is not a good city for single black women who want to get married one day.

    Most gays are so promiscuous and reckless, they have no idea who infected them. If you have sex with 5, 10, 20 different people, in one day, how can you pinpoint the person who infected you?

    On the other hand, some guys won’t speak up, because they feel like they deserve what they got. They have lived their entire lives feeling like they deserved to be punished. So… they suffer in silence.

  • RealATLPeach36

  • shun king

    i saw that in california and couldn’t believe it like what the hell. it’s just a misdemeanor to sleep with somebody knowing you have aids.smh

  • NicoleZee

    I don’t think Atlanta is good for any kind of relationship, even for those that seek companionship without marriage. But you could say the same about every city around the world. There are not many quality people around. As I stated in another post, most people are looking for financial help and shelter, not love. I think maybe if more people would focus on getting their lives together and not depending on a man or woman to help them, then maybe there “might” be more quality people. But there again, you would still have the sickos, psychos, and users regardless.

    Daystar Television is a Christian network the show was Joni Lamb. It was really good. Gays & Transgender told stories on how the door open up. Most were molested by family members. It made you more sensitive. The stories was heartbreaking. Just kids dealing with all type of sexual abuse.

    I am talking about as far as discrimination as gender we can all get it. We were discussing AIDS in the shop and me and this other lady was telling everyone about a special on this on 60 Minutes call Patient O and it showed how this guy was a flight attendant and having sex with different men all over the world. When they showed the map of his travels it covered the wall Because they first tried to say AIDS came from Africa from a monkey. We also told them about another PBS special about a suburb in Conyers where they showed rich white kids meeting in hotels and having all kinds of sex in their guest house and stuff and they wasn’t even 17 and a outbreak of syphilis. One girl got on television and demonstrated how they would have sex on top of each other with stuff animals and have a sex sandwich. They would have a group of boys in a room and one girl will go around the room and have sex with all the boys and one boy will go into a room and have sex with all the girls. Do they get a pass if they were gay or to they get shamed because they are heterosexual. There so many names on the wall looked like wallpaper. We came to the shop again weeks later and folks were amazed at both videos and my friend was shocked that it was right down the street from her home. We have to look at as much stuff as we can because we live our lives in a sexual bubble that this can’t happen to me. The important thing is EDUCATE/EDUCATE/EDUCATE yourself.

    Whoa I am having a blast in ATL meeting men dating and stuff I never had any problems. if I meet someone and we don’t connect, we just didn’t connect and keep it moving. It is just some of them think you should be grateful they spoke to you because they bought into the 9 women for every man stereotype and I let them know those stats goes both ways. I have had men that I have loved but as far as getting married, no and I never been married and people ask why. I tell them I Iove my single life just like it is.The men in my age bracket if they are single they come with the baggage of 2+ wives and the one that has everything that a woman will want in a man is so arrogant as if you suppose to kiss his azz to get to the “D”. I let them go so someone else can do it. Everyman is not marriage material. Some men don’t want the responsibility to take care of a wife and kids. That is why we women needs to stop trying to make every bachelor a husband. I respect that.

  • Meme

    I too appreciate your honesty I remember the first time I read about bug chasers and gift givers I was so shocked, I wanted to know why, i read loads of stories about it. Some people thought it was inevitable they would soon catch it and so wanted to be in control if when they did..

    I have stories for days. I should write a book and call it the Book of Bums. My mom’s friend Ms. Kaye says she’s looking for love online but she has a disabled African man living with her and she won’t put him out because she doesn’t want to see him on the street. WTF??? But he barely contributes but yet he can take a trip to his home country. FOH! My mom said if that were her his ass would be on the street with the quickness! God help us all please! We now live in a generation of bums and leeches that refuse to even try to do better but they stay looking for people to use. Sad.

    I think she said he was from Nigeria. But Kaye had moved to a new place while he was gone and when he got back, she let this nigga move back in but said she wanted him gone!!! She claims they’re just friends, but why is she trying to help him when she can barely help herself??? And if she’s looking for love, what man is going to want to deal with a woman that has a man living with her??? The f*ck??? Lord forgive me, but I have to be honest. I’ve dated African men before and they are scam artists. Even the ones that have money will STILL try to swindle you out of some money even if they don’t really need it. I dated this Nigerian who wanted me to pay for his ticket back home; this man had his own business and was asking me for money! WTH???

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Sounds like you’re one of the fortunate ones.
    But Atlanta has become such a mecca for gay/bisexual men now that I’ve heard black women say they’re almost scared to date nowadays… Even a dude that seems straight could still be on the down-low, looking for a “beard” to get with just to show his family members he has a wife/girlfriend in his life now.
    A buddy of mine has 3 teenage daughters and I remember him saying he and his wife were genuinely concerned that their girls might never find quality black men to marry in this city. I felt bad for them.

  • Meme

    Wish I could watch that but yes I have heard that a high percentage (not all) gay men were abused as children. Similar to women who become prosturutes

    I knew you would’ve known him. He was very talented. I loved Mychael, Koto and Sonjia from Project Runway.

  • NicoleZee

    That’s the thing, even with Atlanta having a high rate of STDs, I have never dated men here who pass around diseases like that. I let them know from jump that I don’t play that shit. I don’t control people and I won’t be controlled, but infect me with something if you want to and they won’t be able to have an open casket at their funeral! LOL! But in all seriousness, what I see mostly from men is these lowlife married men living as if they are single and mainly men who want to use a woman for sex or money. The sex don’t even be that good! Good grief. These men are desperate for sex and most of them can’t get it up, have a small penis, or can only last 20 minutes tops! WTH??? And it’s not just the crusty old dudes, some of these young ones are horrible in bed too. They’re unhealthy mentally and physically, I think that’s the main problem. Sad.

    They changed the law last weekend or last week. No LONGER a felony. She is NOT LYING.

  • hottlanta

    I told this guy one time when we were talking about that. We are not mad with you if you are gay. We are mad with you when you are a coward and put women and kids in your mess that has nothing to do with you and can’t understand why folks are mad with you. Come out on your own time and leave other folks out your mess. DL is down low turned around means low down LD. Once the word is out a woman has been with a DL man a straight man don’t want to have anything to do with her sexually because you trying to have the best of both worlds. His penis print in her vagina is not going behind your penis print. Trust me. Whereas there are some gay men that has the luxury to leave the woman and live a gay lifestyle and he can always get another man. Yes there are a lot of gay/bisexual men in the ATL but we are losing a whole generation of young gay males because of lack of education and old pervs taking advantage of them the way a old pervs takes advantage of a young woman. A lot of them are gay because if someone says they are gay they get all kinds of attention folks clap and stuff. Say you are heterosexual you get oh, ignored no love or nothing. They have it in their mind that they gonna live this fab gay life in reality a lot of them are depressed, homeless and prostitutes because they put so much on being gay more than going to school to get an education. Breaks my heart. I see it everyday.

  • Oya Shango

    If it is true that he actually was HIV+, that alone would not kill him today. It had to be the nature of both his oral and anal sexual fetishes that might have caused his severe IBS issues. Either way, such a tragic waste of life.

  • hottlanta

    20 minutes and you lost his number, what was wrong with you. One of my girlfriend was telling me one guy asked her why she didn’t want to see him anyone. She said she went Dougie Fresh on him. I said what did you say. She said she told him 6 minutes/6 minutes. I was done. I had to put the telephone down and actually cry. I can’t even listen to that song to this day.

  • Oh Tommie

    I just searched his name as a hashtag on IG…not posting out of respect but he didn’t even look the same…he was so thin.

  • hottlanta

    Thank you. Glad you showing honor to the dead.

  • NicoleZee

    So anal sex can cause IBS??? WTF??? I don’t know much about IBS, but I have heard of people being hospitalized for it or developing some type of infection if it gets really bad, like a bacterial infection, which anyone can get really since bacteria is everywhere. But I wonder what the truth is about this young man. Some say he had HIV, some say he had full blown AIDS or IBS. I am wondering what the actual cause of death is. Very sad.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I can imagine. Two of my wife’s closest homegirls have herpes and another one has HPV (incurable). And that’s just the ones she’s told me about, just in casual conversation. God only knows what her other friends have.
    There’s a lot of stuff floating around now in the dating world. I’m so glad I’m not out there.

  • NicoleZee

    Some people are sicker and more twisted than you can ever imagine. Disgusting. The government NEVER pays out enough money for anything, if that was the case, everyone would be on some type of government assistance. You’re better off just getting a damn job. Mental illness is getting the best of people. It really is sad. I think the government should do more to lock these loonies up permanently, but that’s too much like right.

  • Ni Ni

    Wow, learn something new everyday.

  • klwbaby

    There is a documentary called The Gift that goes into detail about bug chasers.

  • NicoleZee

    A lot of these young men, especially the attractive ones, are escorts. They can’t find jobs that pay enough so they resort to having sex for money of course. I had a Hispanic friend like that. He was a cutie pie too. I had no idea until I Googled his phone number one day. Sad. His explanation was that he no longer does it, but the fact remains that he once did. Not my business, he was never my man, just a friend, but I wondered if he was bisexual too. He said he wasn’t. So years later I met another guy right, this Black guy I had started dating, and he told me that my friend is definitely bisexual. So I asked him how would he know that. He said he just does, didn’t really explain. #DEAD! Atlanta is one big cesspool of sex and disease. And even though I’ve never experienced a guy passing me a disease like that, these niggas for everybody! Damn!

  • Oya Shango

    If he was into some of the extreme anal fetishes such as “fisting” and inserting objects into his rectum along with oral/swallowing, it can cause some serious abdominal health issues, esp if the person(s) he is sexing is also HIV+ or have other communicable diseases. He stated in his twitter above, that he has “leakage” in his bowels. That might have been an indication that those ruptures were from objects being inserted. . .. I am just speculating tho.

  • leapyearpisces

    Yeah, I saw that. No worries. It’s too much shat going on to keep up with EVERYTHING.

  • Ni Ni

    I ran into an older girl who had move there out of high school. She came back home for a minute and said she was moving to Tennessee, i asked why (i wanted to move to Atlanta at the time) she said there were no men there. This was around 2003.

  • NicoleZee

    OMG! LOL! In my Mike Epps voice, “I let em know at the doe!” If they can’t keep up with me for at least a few hours when we do our thing, you gots to go. Sorry, not sorry. I might compromise on some things, but if his bedroom game is weak or his equipment doesn’t work properly, I’m out. Nothing wrong with my body parts, so why should I have to put up with bad sex or no sex at all??? Nope. FOH! I’m a woman with real body parts and not afraid to speak up when it comes to sex. Some women might not want sex, but um, that’s a requirement when I’m involved with someone or he can keep it moving to the next.

  • Rahab

    Pedro Zamora from Real World San Francisco

  • Oya Shango

    This is so true. There is a gay man from Atlanta who has a YT channel, and spills the tea on this “lifestyle” in Atlanta. He too talks about the reckless and dangerous sexual behaviors of these new generation of gay males. He states that they know that they are HIV+ and don’t inform their partners and really don’t care who they infect. There are even private clubs where HIV- men can go to get infected on purpose.

    What is more troubling are the so-called downlow men who go back and infect heterosexual women. Young black women have the highest HIV+ rate of all women, due to this behavior. Now, that Calif is leading the way to make this kind of behavior only a misdemeanor, I expect the HIV rate to even triple.

  • Ni Ni

    Do they still date?

  • Rahab

    They are too good, in their own minds, for a homeless shelter. Meanwhile, plenty of mothers and children live there permanently. I saw a homeless Asian man sitting in a doorway enjoying his breakfast muffin and was shocked. Shouldn’t be given the number of young, strung out white people begging on the streets of downtown Chicago. Straight nodding asking for help via a cardboard sign.

  • NicoleZee

    She’s right, it’s 2017 almost 2018 and there are no real men in Atlanta. Just broke bums, dummies, ugly men, gay dudes that try to date straight women, psychos, thieves, diseased dudes, sex addicts, murderers, rapists, child molesters, and woman beaters. So most women can choose from that selection or the smart chicks like myself that have had enough choose to be single, horny, and lonely and just find some hobbies to occupy our free time.

  • Oya Shango

    Homosexuality as a culture only occurs in humans. There are no species of animals where there exist a community of only “gays.”

  • Ni Ni

    You can find one, just look for one with morals. You can start by the way she dress. It really is a lot easier for a man to find a mate.

  • NicoleZee

    It really is sad. And a lot of women and children are on the streets because of a sorry ass man they depended on who let them down. I am so done, thank you! I got so sick and tired of attracting bums that I finally gained some sense and decided to focus on myself. I am not here for this kind of fuckery from these sorry men. All they want to do is use a woman for something but can’t do shit for you and the dick don’t even be halfway good! I can’t!!! It’s best that I focus on myself and raising my son and continuing to keep him happy and safe. If love is meant for me, then my prince will find me. Oh, but I forgot, all the damn princes are taken. Even Prince Harry finally got him somebody. Damn!!!! LOL!

  • Ni Ni

    I dont blame you. There’s nothing like a peace of mind. Gay men will try to get over on foolish women just so they can have a place to lay their head.

  • NicoleZee

    What??? Lord, Jesus in heaven! I haven’t heard the word fisting in years. But I don’t watch porn like I used to so I wouldn’t know the trends and fetishes people keep up with nowadays. How can a fist even fit…..Nevermind, I don’t even want to know. And why would any fool want to put objects in their genitals or butthole??? I know people do this I just don’t get it. Those objects and toys contain chemicals, like WTF??? That’s why I never used sex toys, ain’t got time for no more allergies, I have enough!!! No thanks! Whatever floats someone’s boat as they say. I just prefer a real straight man, we can be freaky, but we don’t need no toys ;). Geeesh!

    I appreciate your honesty as well; you are bringing awareness to a serious problem. I feel sorry for the kids & young adults because no one is telling them the truth about real life. They don’t grasp that there are consequences to living a wreckless (fun/carefree) life until it’s too late. Everything is being swept under the rug

  • hottlanta

    I went to a sex toy shop and they had glass dycks at the door behind the counter in a case because people steal them. I had them to take one at so l can look at it and it was heavy.They have anal balls and everything. Fisting is illegal but folks still do it. I don’t even want a hard plastic strap on going up in me damaging my vaginal walls causing an infection. Then you got to boil it to clean it. I ain’t having collard greens boiling in one pot and a plastic dyck boiling in another pot on the stove at the same dayum time. No ma am. When I say where’s the beef I want some beef. I don’t wanna get outta the bed and got all kinna stuff jangling and hitting the floor when I am going to the bathroom. That is toooo much noise.

  • hottlanta

    Being married doesn’t make you safe. I have seen women go to the doctor for a pregnancy exam and during the routine test her husband has given her a STD. Now she got the stress of a pregnancy and a STD. My cousin married as a virgin and got herpes from her husband. on her wedding night. Married women are afraid to take the STD test as part of their routine exam afraid of the results. I will never forget a story I read in Essence magazine of a couple who was married over 60 years. Mom was going blind, family took her to the doctor thinking it was glaucoma and mom had syphilis that she got from her husband of over 60 years. Family/she thought because she was married she was safe. I can imagine people was telling them I want a marriage just like yours and they was giving out all kinds of advice on how to stay married. STD’s do not discriminate.

  • NicoleZee

    OMG, too much noise! LOL! I’m still on the fisting, like WTH??? Who would want a fist in their butthole like that??? That sounds painful and if the person has nasty hands they can give you a bacterial infection and God knows what else! Yuck! I’ve never even used sex toys nor been with a guy who wanted too. Most straight dudes tell me that sex toys are for women and gay men. Who knows these days?! When it comes to sex, if something has chemicals or might send me to the clinic, it’s a no for me. Just give me one straight man with a clean, disease free pecker that works and I’m good! However, I’ve always wanted to go to a sex club just to watch and see what goes on, that would make me and the guy more anxious to get back home and do our own thing. That’s still on my to do list for one day ;).

  • Ni Ni

    Sex club, smh…if you go, you better not drink any alcohol, lol. I started to buy a sex toy years ago then i thought what if i die and my family comes to clean up and find it. I wouldn’t want them thinking i was a freak lol.

    Bug chasers? What is that

  • the guest

    I’ve read that gay black men in Atlanta will also date, marry, and procreate with heterosexual black women. Some are deceiving women, some women know. I don’t think it’s wise for a women to knowingly be with a gay black man.

  • klwbaby

    Bug is another name for HIVAIDS. So a bug chaser is a person who intentionally sleeps with a man who has HIV hoping he gets HIV.

    I auditioned for the show in 2004 so I’ve always been a dedicated fan of PR. Hearing this sad news was very heartbreaking. Mychael was truly a fan favorite.
    He had suffered with iBS for the past 5 years. He had spoke on it previously in the media. He said he had holes in his intestines do that’s how the toxins and bacteria got into his blood system.
    IBS is a serious disease and it can kill you. I had avfriend die this year of a similar illness diverticulitis. It was sudden and very sad since she was so young and had small children.

    You spent this much time worrying about whether a man you dont know and if he has aids. All of you live a sad sad life if that is all you can come up with when someone passes away. I visited plenty of sites and only this one went on and on about his health… You still responding on this ish. Dont you have a kid to take care of? Karma aint cute keep this in mind for the future while I block you real quick

  • isaiit

  • jazzysmith12

    indeed but gA!yS don’t stand a chance.They’re a direct insult to The Most High.They live constantly in error.Now bich axz Sandra remove this comment axz well you ga!y f!!ck!!

  • shun king

    this photo should be plastered all around atlanta

  • Phillybruh

    Why should it be plastered all around ATL?

  • shun king

    because aids is at an unheard of epidemic proportion in atlanta among gay black males

  • Phillybruh

    And I’m not sure how this picture will ease that. I’m fairly certain those gay black men know the risk of they are taking and choose to take it anyway.

  • Oya Shango

    HIV cannot be spread by tears, sweat, urine etc., Only via blood to blood and semen

  • You Could Never

    Welp

  • You Could Never

    Adios to you they both said.

  • You Could Never

    Fukk the folks who upvoted this

  • R in NYC

    He had a severe case of it cuz it caused there to be holes in his intestines.

  • Oya Shango

    This is not a funeral announcement or obituary. It is a public blog, open to comments by the LIVING community. There are lessons to be learned, and it is a very real possibility that other lives could be have saved by someone contemplating such acts at that very moment. You make your RIP and allow others to express their feelings their way.

  • R in NYC

    I just know my friend had these same type of bowel issues and the toxins leaked into her bloodstream and she was dead in 3 days. He may not have disclosed everything that was wrong.

  • jessica

    I’ve seen stories of IBS being confused for bowel cancer. RIP

  • bemetoo

    oh my fwaking god …god forgive me but he look…..

  • bemetoo

    ibs will not kill you unleast you have i autoimmune disease

  • bemetoo

    nope that was because of an autoimmune disease

  • Phillybruh

    If it causes damage then yes it can.

  • Oya Shango

    That is not IBS, even in its most severe form. That looks like “wasting” due to HIV-AIDs. IBS vacillates between diarrhea, G.I. bloating and constipation. What this man described is intractable diarrhea, holes in his intestines and intestinal leakage. That is not IBS.

  • IntroSpective

    I have IBS(C) . Since there is technically no cure for it I had to do self treatment. Intermittent fasting keeps me from having flare ups and of course limiting carbs. Digestive issues are no joke.

    Sad to hear.. I had a family member that died from the same thing… But she was around her 70s.

  • Look@m3

    Dang, I just never knew it could be that bad!!! WebMD make it seem like its just bowel issues and there is nothing fatal about it. This is good info. Thanks!

  • NicoleZee

    No one needs to sit down but you. You are clearly one of the mentally ill ones that need help. You need prayer, can’t nobody help you but God and a psychiatrist. Sad.

  • NicoleZee

    I don’t understand that. Someone who knowingly passes STDs should get serious time in prison, especially if they are spreading HIV and AIDS, in that case they need life in prison. It’s sad. All people have to do is get tested regularly and let the person you are sleeping with know of your diseases. Why is that so hard??? Plenty of idiots will readily sleep with someone who is infected even after they find out!! Sad but true. I heard that there are even dating websites for people infected with STDs. Like WTF???

  • Miss Thang

    there is nothing fatal about it. unless your immune system is severely compromised. which is why people are speculating on his HIV status,

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. I’m pretty sure almost every black gay male in atlanta knows somebody who is HIV positive, or died from it. A picture of this one guy wont make a difference to anybody.

  • RoniV

    Thanks for the post Ms D. Helps explain why Gov Jerry Brown (Cali) passed Law SB 239 lowering the offense of “knowingly exposing a partner to HIV” from a felony to a misdemeanor. Sick and sad….smdh

  • RoniV

    I’m glad you listened:)

  • jazzysmith12

    all g!y black men do is aid in whyte supremacy

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    “I heard that there are even dating websites for people infected with STDs”
    ——
    Well, I guess that kind of makes sense. If somebody has herpes, hiv, etc. its going to be hard for them to find somebody who’s disease-free who wants to get with them. Might as well date somebody who has the same disease, I guess.

  • RoniV

    I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your honesty in this post. Being married 25+ it opened my eyes to many things, and also shook me to my core. I’m going to have my grown kids read it, and share with as many as possible. I wish you well in your life friend.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I’m glad, too. A lot of the people I met back then, are dead now. ?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I had to go look it up to confirm that it’s actually true. Ridiculous.
    So if i bash somebody in the face with a metal pipe I can be charged with a felony, but If I were to have HIV and knowingly expose somebody to the disease, that’s a misdemeanor? On what planet does that even make sense?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Thank you. Glad to be of service. ?

  • Lady_Elle

    I am sick over this loss!
    I really liked his design style…. I watched him on project runway!
    RIP Michael!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    That’s an interesting statement. How do black gay men aid in white supremacy?

  • NicoleZee

    Straight up nastiness. I wish a nigga would! I’ve met plenty of bums and deadbeats, but thankfully I don’t meet dudes who spread disease like that, hope I never do. It’s just sad how any psycho could knowingly jeopardize the health and life of someone else. Both people do have to be responsible for their health, but to lie and deceive like that is just horrific. FOH, let me meet some sorry nigga like HerpUsher, the cops wouldn’t be able to find their missing body parts and I’d be somewhere in Mexico laying low with a cartel. LOL!

  • Guest©

    Great suggestion, I do low carbs but I forgot about the intermittent fasting. I will doing that again soon. I feel you pain. I have digestive issues too.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Yessss!! I saw that a while back ? him and none of his ppl ain’t sh** for that!! Smh

  • ?Royalty?

    I think many health issues could be solved by intermittent fasting.

  • jazzysmith12

    Because in order for black people in Amerikkka to build a strong, prosperous, black community we need strong black families– husband and wife.The money must circulate in our community just as the Asians and Hispanics do.
    Then we can build black wall street back.We as black people need to support black businesses.Ga!y people can’t reproduce and build a strong black foundation,a strong black family.They want to sing kumbaya with other races too much.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Unless there’s a medical condition, most gays are capable of reproducing. In fact, I know many gay men and women, who have biological children. Furthermore, if that’s the basis of your argument, that same rule should be applied to white, Asian, and Hispanic homosexuals. If you’re going to address the challenges facing a traditional family in the black community, your focus should be on straight men and women.

  • jazzysmith12

    i only care about black people GTFOH with that bullshit

  • jazzysmith12

    you sound like a twisted, demented individual–ga!ys that reproduce– bye trick!!!

  • RealATLPeach36

    Royalty I made someone upset with my OPINION. She said I guess you’re a peach…..I’m like was that shade because it went over my head…I told her to scratch her AZZ and get glad…my granny use to tell all of that ??

    Yawl got to starr recognizing these trolls. Pay close attention and you will see this same name on another post saying something out of left field…fyi.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Been a fan of his since Project Runway. Sad to hear that he is gone. RIP.

  • Kiya Moore

  • EMILY POST

    They have to keep all the chaos going because they dont want you to really pay attention to what they are doing or talking about behind everyones backs.
    The Democrats are the most two faced party out there but they get away with it because no one pays attention because they keep people distracted with BS.

  • IntroSpective

    Agreed!!! I love it.

  • shun king

    i know a young chick about 21 died of aids i know for fact she looked just like that her famliy said she had bone cancer tho….while she had aids and still “fine” she was selling her ass and getting with older guys and tell them she is pregnant to get money for hoe clothes

  • shun king

    excuse me?

  • shun king

    it will scare them into acting right it’s called negative reinforcement

  • Floriduhh Evans

    SAD to hear this. RIP ??

  • Evillene

    The comments in this post are revolting. I don’t think this young man deserved to be dishonored with lurid, downright disgusting, speculation about the circumstances of his death. I understand now why some families choose not to disclose cause of death. The effects of HIV and AIDS can be managed with medication 99.9% of the time. If you have other chronic conditions those conditions, in tandem with HIV infection, can be fatal if not properly treated. Please don’t trust nothing you read here — there is so much information on HIV/AIDS available just by searching Google. Don’t let a disease that is preventable AND treatable take you outta here.

  • HelloToni

    Yes…but I see other posters have doubts

  • Nel

    You’re from Atl.. you should know lol

  • Nel

    Correct, just as most of the time you’re doing the same. Gossip is just that, gossip.

  • Nel

    He definitely had something, but he’s not here to defend himself, so may he just Rest In Peace.
