Since Malik Yoba announced to the world that he’s attracted to trans women, things have gotten rather complicated for him. In fact, most recently, Yoba has been removed from a leadership role with Phi Beta Sigma, after a trans woman accused him of paying her to have sex with him when she was an underage prostitute.
According to a memo that was sent out to fraternity members on Thursday, the organization’s decision to remove Malik was made after a trans woman by the name of Mariah Lopez Ebony, claimed that Yoba was sexually involved with her 20 years ago, which Yoba denied. Ebony wrote a Facebook post last week claiming that Yoba had sex with her when she was 13 and 16 years old.
Ebony also accused the actor of begging for unprotected sex, and she seemed to be pretty was sure she was not the only underaged trans woman that he had been with.
Given the seriousness of the allegations, the Fraternity felt it was best to take the necessary precautions to protect its values and reputation.
Yoba served as an honorary member of the historic black fraternity and was named the spokesperson of the Sigma Beta Club program earlier this year, which focused on giving mentorship to “pre-teen and teenaged males” through social, cultural and educational enrichment.
Malik denied accusations made by Ebony in a freestyle that has now been deleted from his Instagram.
