I made the mistake of picking this book up.
It's not written very well at all. The author tells a story in one chapter then repeats the same story in another chapter!
I don't want to give anything away, but it does have some new information about Marvin's later years and Zeola is very candid about her childhood/teen years.

Hope you can reveal what she mentioned about Marvin's later years. wink

Well aside from agreeing with Frankie, that Marvin wanted to die.
Zeola basically describes Marvin's paranoia. She claims that promotors from Marvin's last tour kept him high on coke, Marvin began dealing with some gang called The "Black Mafia" and members of Marvin's entourage walked around back stage with pistols and machine guns.

I don't want to spoil it for others who are interested....
But some of the things Zeola was quoted as saying left me saying rolleyes

The black Mafia?! rolleyes

I've heard the stories of having his entourage walking around with pistols and machine guns. I've read where Marvin would have his personal driver drive around his hotel like 5 or 6 times to shake off his "assassin".

Apparently (this was from one of the A&E shows) early on the tour one of the entourage killed himself and this set Marvin off because he thought there was someone after him. It was very sad too as i've heard that he'd literally eat cocaine before shows. sad

Just an FYI, this book was narrated to the author by Zeola. Much of what is in her 'new' book is in this poorly written one. The content is identical in places. Zeola has basically written the same book three times. She is not someone who is very fond of me , dedicating a chapter to me,which is fine. Just don't be fooled. I could go on, but I won't. I always asked, 'Why? Why Did You Write This Book?' It makes MG look so bad.

Think about where the negative stories come from. Then celebrate Marvin's life.

I thought of what you said earlier. And then Marvin's family's comments about him wanting to die from Frankie, Jeanne and Zeola. I don't know, but it seems Zeola is not really writing with the best of intentions. In fact, more than anything, some members of Marvin's family have done their best to make Marvin seem like a total nut case when he really wasn't at all.
