After this, a lot of y’all need to apologize to the late Kevin Samuels and his family!
( We looking at you Pastor Jamal Bryant ) According to TMZ, the GoFundMe going around that’s for Kevin Samuels’ funeral expenses is 100% fake! (And it’s raised $50,000!)
When the unexpected death of Kevin Samuels was confirmed, the GoFundMe page was created claiming to be for his funeral expenses.
Many people on the internet called Kevin a hypocrite for not having life insurance to cover his funeral because he always preached about financial literacy.
Chile, even Pastor Jamal Bryant made a whole sermon around this fake GoFundMe account, that he has sense apologized for. After all the debates and back and forth, turns out the GoFundMe is fake!
TMZ exclusively reported that Kevin Samuels’ family did not set up the viral GoFundMe fundraiser. When GoFundMe realized it was fraudulent, they scrapped the page all together. They even offered Kevin’s family the money that was raised even though it wasn’t their account, but they refused to take it! All money raised was returned back to the donors.
So now everyone can just calm down and let Kevin Samuels Rest In Peace! Thoughts?

The woman who was with Kevin Samuels on the night claims she’s being harassed online by fans of the self-described relationship guru.
As reported by Hot News Hip Hop, according to a Thursday, May 5, police report by Officer K. Figuereo of the Atlanta Police Department, Ortencia Alcantara is the woman who said she met the 53-year-old the night before his death and spent the evening with him.

The untimely death of well-known YouTube influencer Kevin Samuels is the latest example that tomorrow is not promised. That’s why it’s important the message you preach should be the life you lead! Samuels made a name for himself criticizing mostly Black women for what he called destructive behavior unconducive to healthy relationships. While I understand and might agree with some of his arguments – it turns out Samuels was leading a double life: Promoting family connections while not having the best relationship with his own family members.
Samuels’ own mother admitted she found out about the death of her only child the same way I did; via social media. That proves he wasn’t as close to his mom as he should have been. If a man doesn’t respect his mom enough to stay in touch with her and to see about her well-being, he’s not the kind of man I would seek for a personal relationship.
While its true some things are beyond our control that effect our lives, that police report that included facts about the last 24 hours of his life make me question the real man behind the internet sensation most people followed without question. Was he a hypocrite? Click the video above and let’s talk about it.

Relationship expert Kevin Samuels passed away on Friday, during a romantic encounter with a Caucasian woman he had just met.
Now we have some more tea about Kevin who often described himself as a “high value man” and said that women would need to meet a high bar in order to get a man in his category. But it turns out that Kevin Samuels may have been BROKE!
The Media spoke with one of Kevin’s friends, who has been in touch with his family and he claims that Kevin was “deeply” in debt. According to the friend, Kevin’s family has been trying to identify all his assets and has only been able to locate less than $1,000.
Kevin Samuels was a popular Black online image consultant and widely credited with coining the phrase “high value man.” The term high-value man as it is commonly used today refers to a man of financial means and social influence. The term alone isn’t new or problematic in that society has always placed a higher value on wealthy men.
But Kevin often used the term “high value man” to troll Black women into believing that they didn’t have what it took to get a man in that category.
We spoke to a person close to Kevin and his family – and he told us that Kevin was ANYTHING BUT high value.
The friend also told us that the family is contemplating setting up a GoFundMe to raise money to give the “high value man” a proper funeral.
