Malik Yoba stormed off the set of an interview with The Root after he was questioned about soliciting a teenage transgender street walker.

Yoba, 52, made headlines last month after he admitted he was sexually attracted to males who wear feminine attire.

Insisting he is a heterosexual male who loves "all women," Yoba called on Black men to set aside their personal beliefs and consider having relationships with male-to-female (MtF) transgenders.

In a lengthy post that has since been deleted, Yoba introduced his Caucasian "girlfriend" who was born a male named Brad "BJ" Hendrix.

He called BJ "the most incredible woman I've ever had the pleasure of loving. My truest reflection ever!"

The NY Undercover actor appeared on numerous urban radio and TV talk shows to discuss his transgender obsession. But a recent interview didn't end well.

Via Vlad TV -- "During a recent interview with The Root, Yoba was asked about the allegations and became irate. "It's a set up. I don't like this. We said we were going to talk about policies. I don't appreciate this at all. This is not what we f*cking discussed. We sat for four f*cking hours. We sat for four f**king hours," the actor yelled. "F**k you! This is my f**king life," said Yoba before storming off."

I know some of you are tired of hearing about Malik Yoba's transgender proclivities, but he's still trending and Sandrarose.com covers news and gossip.

Yoba and NBJC Director David Johns (far left) were invited guests on The Breakfast Club on Tuesday. Yoba, 51, brought along his guests, trans activist Carmen Carrera (2nd from left), and healthcare Worker Nala Simone (2nd from right) to discuss transgender issues.

As you know, Yoba is getting backlash for admitting he is attracted to MTF trans, and for urging heterosexual men to consider bedding MtF trans, since, Yoba insists, they are women too.

Johns got the conversation popping by reminding Charlamagne and DJ Envy that they have entertained homophobia and transphobia on The Breakfast Club.

Watch the video below to see how that conversation went.

The fallout continues for Malik Yoba after the New York Undercover actor took to his Instagram page to announce he was attracted to MtF transgenders.

According to a memo obtained by NewsOne, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., removed Yoba as spokesman for the Sigma Beta Club program, which provides counseling and guidance for pre-teen boys and teenage males.

In the memo, dated Sept. 5 and sent out to fraternity members on Thursday, the organization decided to remove Yoba after allegations were made against him by Mariah Lopez Ebony, a former transgender prostitute who claims Yoba paid for sexual favors from child sex workers.

In an interview with Ryan Cameron on Majic 107.5 on Thursday, Yoba vigorously denied the allegations and threatened to sue bloggers and media outlets who ran the story.

Last year, Yoba revealed his 3 year relationship with a male to female (MtF) transgender.
 

In a lengthy post that has since been deleted, Yoba introduced his Caucasian "girlfriend" who was born a male named Brad "BJ" Hendrix.

He called BJ "the most incredible woman I've ever had the pleasure of loving. My truest reflection ever!"

He added:

"It took me 48 years to finally find my match and I’m eternally grateful for you BJ Hendrix. The last two years on this journey with you has taught me so much about myself, how to heal my childhood wounds, my capacity for growth and knowledge of self, what grace and unconditional love really looks like."

Malik Yoba says he is planning to file lawsuits against bloggers and "media outlets" that ran the teen transgender prostitute story.

In an interview with Ryan Cameron on Majic 107.5 on Thursday, Sept. 5, Yoba lashed out at bloggers who ran the trans prostitute's story "without proof".

In a Facebook post titled "Surviving Malik Yoba: We had sex, when I was just a teen," Mariah Lopez Ebony said Yoba paid for sexual favors when Ebony was 13 and 16 years old.

But Yoba, 55, told Ryan he didn't even know who Ebony was.

Still, he said he was "considering" suing bloggers who ran the story - not the person who put the story out there. He claimed the scandal has already cost him money and bookings.

Yoba defended his earlier statement that he was attracted to male to female transgenders. He also dismissed critics who say he is gay or homosexual.

Yoba insisted he is not homosexual. He admitted he was molested when he was a boy. Childhood molestation is a common link among homosexuals.

He said heterosexuals gave birth to transgenders, which is why he wants heterosexuals to participate in a transgender workshop he's hosting at the National Trans Visibility March in Washington, D.C. later this month.

"I love all women," he said, adding that no one has slept with more women than he has.

He said he made the announcement because too many people who look like him are dying in the streets.

He said he realized he was attracted to lady boys when he was a teenager.

He also suggested his baby mama was untruthful when she said he didn't prepare her or their 2 children for his shocking revelation.

He denied her claim that he in a romantic relationship with transgender activist Carmen Carrera.

One of Malik Yoba's baby mamas lashed out at the actor for not preparing her family for his transgender confession. Yoba, 51, went viral last week after he confessed he was "trans attracted."

Yoba confessed his sexual proclivities in a lengthy post on his Instagram account.

He wrote in part:

"I love ALL women AND count MYSELF among those that find themselves trans attracted and I too have felt the self imposed shame that comes with that truth but it’s time to speak up,” Yoba wrote. “It is NOT about GENITALIA OR SEX but about attraction to the soul and humanity of an individual and often the beauty that is in the courage and conviction to live ones truth! As a self identified cis heterosexual man I too am learning what it means to be trans attracted."

Most of his followers were supportive of him, but Yoba caused mass confusion when he claimed he was heterosexual.

Terry Vega is the mother of Yoba's two youngest children, Dena, now 18, and Josiah, now 17.

Vega, whose IG name is @terry1andonly, was furious at Yoba for not preparing the children for what must have been shocking news.

After acknowledging she was aware of Yoba's current trans relationship, she wrote:

"Why did you NOT have a conversation with our children and wait till last night to text our 1st born with this info. Yet you were preparing your Public months ago on IG! Our children support you and keep so much a secret of what really goes down with our family dynamic. I asked to meet you over a month ago and you have yet to make time. So here I am !! If you know better then do better! Family is first over ALL."

Yoba posted a throwback photo of the two of them together while she was pregnant.

Malik Yoba's three children are being harassed after his shocking confession that he is attracted to male-to-female (MtF) transgenders.

Malik, 51, confessed he is a "trans attracted" man in a lengthy post on his Instagram account last week.

Malik returned to Instagram on Labor Day to thank his followers for their positive messages and words of encouragement.

"I want to say thank you all. All the good folks who've reached out in the last 24 hours," he said in a video. "Seeing my name, talking about 'trans attraction: Malik Yoba.' So, here's the thing. We're human beings, and we're all part of the guide body, and so, unfortunately, part of our mechanism is that we need to judge and characterize and ostracize and vilify and demonize the things we don't understand."

While the majority of his followers have been positive, the actor said his three children are receiving "foul messages" on social media ever since his revelation.

Malik is pictured in 2011 with his children (L-R) Dena, now 18, Josiah, now 17, and Pria, now 21.

"Just because you don't understand something does not make it wrong," the actor told the trolls who are harassing his kids.

Malik encouraged his followers to join him for the transgender march on Washington in three weeks.

"September 27, 28, Washington DC, the trans visibility march in DC, I will be there doing my 'Love and Trauma workshop: The Trans Experience'," he added. "I invite you all to join."

A Facebook post is casting new light on Malik Yoba's confession that he struggles with his attraction to male-to-female (MtF) transgenders.

Malik called on all Black men to erase the stigma that surrounds attraction to same-sex males and MtF transgenders.

"TRANS PEOPLE DESERVE LOVE AND RESPECT AS DO THOSE OF US THAT LOVE THEM!!" Malik wrote. He added he is a heterosexual male who loves ALL women, including men who identify as women, but he struggles with his attraction to MtF transgenders.

As the news went viral on Friday, a MtF transgender prostitute shed new light on Malik's sexual proclivities.

In a Facebook post titled, "Surviving Malik Yoba: We had sex, when I was just a teen," Mariah Lopez Ebony said s/he serviced the actor as a teenage hooker over 20 years ago.

Mariah claimed s/he was a runaway when Malik paid for sex on more than one occasion.

"For all who applaud and solute [sic] Malik Yoba for revealing he is so called ‘Trans Attracted’, understand that either because of deeper issues he has or, because of ‘society’ pushing him and others to deep, dark places, his admission to being sexually attracted to Trans women, is bound to open a Pandora’s box for him; not because the women are Trans, But because many of the Trans women he engaged in sexual exploration and exploitation with on 14th Street, Times Square and elsewhere, were minors. Including myself...

What Malik paid me to do, as a 13 and 16 year old, wasn't love. His ignoring that I was clearly a child prostitute, wasn't love.

Paying for cheap thrills and secret orgasms; begging for unsafe, unprotected sex from a runaway Trans teen, while enjoying stardom as a successful artist and business man ...isn't love."

In the early 2000s Malik was married to actress Cat Wilson. Malik says he was stunned when, after three years of marriage, Wilson called him to say "We should be separated."

Wilson is best known for her work on R. Kelly's "Trapped in the Closet" music video "chapters" released from 2005 to 2012. She also dated Kelly.

Last week's Secret Society Thursdays at Door 44 was poppin! There were so many celebs and patrons in the house that Alex Gidewon had to cut the line at 2 a.m. Keyshia Cole's mom Frankie was all over rapper Yung Joc, who she might have confused for her man since they're about the same age. In fact, she was all over quite a few men in the club. We hope she wasn't driving.

So much for the down low rumors... Actor Malik Yoba and his LSLH girlfriend looked very cozy at AG Entertainment's Secret Society Thursdays party at Door 44 last week. The two held hands and snuggled all night long in a darkened corner (there are no VIP areas at Door 44). As you know, Mr. Yoba is in town filming a Tyler Perry flick with Janet Jackson.

Remember that photo I posted of Malik Yoba with his kids and a female friend? Well, I misidentified the woman in the photo. Actually, she's a New York Socialite named Brie Bythewood who wrote in to clear the air on her relationship with Malik.

Brie lives a fabulous, wealthy lifestyle that the FAKE Housewives of Atlanta can only dream about. In addition to having money, Brie also possesses that certain style and grace that the Fake Housewives simply do not have. That's why the show is losing viewers every week.

But this post is not about those losers. This is about a biracial Socialite who mingles easily with the old money elite of New York's upper crust society. Brie never looks out of place. She is as at home on the Bridgehampton Polo fields as she is on the streets of Manhattan. Nevertheless, you will never see Brie cast in the NY Housewives because Bravo doesn't want you to know that black women with long money like hers exist.

Hello Sandra,

Before I receive anymore comical emails about your post, I thought I'd set your record straight and help you out a bit with the accuracy of your "Celebrity Seed." It seems you've got your facts a tad twisted. I'm the girl in the picture with Malik Yoba at Polo in Bridgehampton. My name is Brie Bythewood (you can Google to assure you're not attaching my name to the wrong person), and I'm a good friend of Malik's as is my brother Dan Bythewood (also photographed). Malik is a wonderful friend to our family as we are to him and his children, whose names are Pria Yoba and Josiah Yoba.

I'm hoping you'll make the appropriate corrections to your site, as we'd ALL appreciate it!

Just helping you out a bit with your celebrity dish... so it doesn't turn into just another typical gossip site!

Kind Regards,
Brie Bythewood

Actor Malik Yoba attended the 2009 Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge last week with his longtime companion Terry Barbosa, right, and his kids (?) Pria and Dena. I put a question mark there because I heard an interesting rumor about Mr. Yoba that I won't repeat. Let's just say I'm surprised that he has children considering what I heard...

Former champion boxer Mike Tyson attended the Teen Choice Awards in Universal City yesterday with his family (L to R) son Amir, 12, daughter Rayna, 13, and daughter Mikey, 19. Amir and Rayna's mom is pediatrician Monica Turner, who divorced Tyson in 2003. Tyson has a total of 7 kids (Exodus, 4, died in June).
