Tracy says she explained that she'd known Darrett for years and they had once dated.
"Jennifer basically went psycho on him," Tracy says from her home. And, she says, she knew it would happen right away. She met Jen at that Seabrook bar and instantly recoiled at the bad vibes. She says she pulled Darrett away and told him, "She's got problems."
Darrett gave the Houston Press Jen's phone number, and while she first agreed to give her side of the story, she failed to respond to voice- and e-mails. She did, however, fire off a zinger of an e-mail to Darrett's current girlfriend, in which she says Darrett gave her a child -- and perhaps more. Darrett was kind enough to provide Jen's e-mail and his girlfriend's response, to wit:
Jen: "I am not sure what darrett has told you...but he and I used to date...but, not for long...but I did end up pregnant...which I am due in May. Darrett will not be in the babies life at ALL....The main reason I wanted to send this email...is because just recently...at my last doctors visit...I found out I have HPV (which is warts)....well...I dont know if I got them from Darrett or not...but I have only slept with 3 people in my life...sooo it probably is a good chance I did. HPV can lie dormant for years...so..just protect yourself girl...I DONT want Darrett back...I really dont ever want to talk to him again..but I thought I would give you a heads up....I do wish you the best, and maybe you can rope him in... and teach him a bit about life...who knows [sic]."
And the reply: "I HAVE BEEN WITH DARRETT MANY TIME'S.. AND I HAVE NO HEALTH PROBLEMS AND EITHER DOES HE... LOL TRUST ME STUPID SHIT THERE WOULD BE A FUNK... AND IF YOUR PREG... I WILL FIND YOU AND WE WILL HAVE A DNA TEST... YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO KEEP THAT BABY FROM HIM OR HIS MOTHER AND FATHER... HOWEVER YOU KEEP THIS UP I WILL PLACE HERASSMENT CHARGES ON YOU...YOU WILL NOT SCARE ME OFF.. THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN CHACE ME OFF WILL BE DARRETT AND I DON'T SEE THAT HAPPEING ANYTIME SOON...
"PEACE OUT FOOL [sic]"
Sadly, we lost contact with Darrett while researching this story, so we do not know if Darrett and Jen resolved their differences.
Fortunately for Andrew, his profile is no longer posted. But for a while, the 47-year-old Californian's picture appeared next to a set of the nastiest allegations on the site. The anonymous poster wrote that Andrew was accused of molesting his daughter and was physically and verbally abusive. And gay. And a mama's boy. With a low sex drive.
Just about the only good thing she had to say about Andrew was couched in a backhanded compliment: "Girls beware, he's very good looking, tall, beautiful eyes...big d#@$, but you know what they say, guys with big d#@$ are inevitably BIG D#@$!!!! [sic]"
When asked about Andrew's disappearance from the site, Joseph says he could've been lost during a site update, or perhaps his accuser asked for him to be removed. We found a phone number for Andrew, but the woman who answered the phone (his mama?) did not want to hear about his being called a gay incestuous child molester, and she hung up. Twice.
Joseph subsequently reported that Andrew's accuser asked for him to be removed from the site. And Andrew probably wouldn't be able to face his accuser, who ostensibly can ask for his profile to be reposted anytime she wants. As Joseph wrote on her blog, "Like any good journalist, I would rather be thrown in jail than reveal the confidential source of a posting!"
If Andrew is indeed guilty of those crimes, then it's a shame he's no longer on the site. If he's not guilty, it's a shame he was ever up there in the first place. Only Andrew and his accuser know the truth. Joseph surely doesn't.
