Former NBA player Jalen Rose was called out by his sister, Tamara Rose, on October 11 on Instagram for disrespecting their recently passed mother.
According to The Shadow League, Tamara took to the social media platform after Jalen announced a plan to sell the family home he had previously purchased for his mother, Jeanne. She passed away almost two years ago, in 2021. His sister has beef with Jalen now that she’s gone. His sister cared for their mother while she was alive.
“My MOTHER passed 20 Months ago! I am still grieving her loss!!! How dare you bring ANYBODY in here to go in My Mother’s room!!”
The video began, “This man is acting as if I do not exist and I do not live here! It will be four years in March. He has always said, ‘I don’t know what it is about Detroit n*****. I’ve been all over the world, but it summin about Detroit n*****. They think somebody is supposed to take care of them!!!’ I’m not just sum n***** off the street! I’m you SISTER, grew up in the same house with you, took care of you, raised you! You would do this to me? You let these white people see you treat your Sister this way with no conscious, heart or soul! The way I’ve been bullied, threatened, taunted, harassed, disregarded and disrespected us totally.”
She referenced Jalen allowing another woman into the family home before.
Tamara continued in the video, “This is what happens when you FIND YOUR VOICE, DECIDE TO TELL THE TRUTH and are NO LONGER PROTECTING YOUR ABUSER!!! I’m tired of being quiet. I’m tired of taking abuse in silence to maintain HIS public image! Knowing he’s been lying for the last 26 years! This man has rewritten our Family History with his LIES!”
She continued, “Has left a wreckage of people behind him who were used and disposed of! You will not get away with disrespecting me or mentally, psychologically, emotionally, spiritually, physically or financially ABUSING ME ANYMORE! Keeping it ALL IN is killing ME! The TRUTH WILL SET ME FREE! Because I’m not living the lie with or about the Man anymore! He’s just as real as his hair and his teeth!! To sell your Sister out and try to force her out of Our Mom’s Home! That our Mother ABSOLUTELY did not want to be sold is a straight-up DISGRACE and DISHONOR to Our MOTHER!”
