Macy Gray & Her Son Say Allegations That He Physically Assaulted Her Aren't True & A Restraining Order Was Never Filed: 'It's Humiliating For Us'
Macy Gray is making sure there aren't any "gray" areas when it comes to her family's reputation!
On Thursday (Feb. 8), singer/actress Macy Gray took to social media to clear the air about recent allegations regarding her son.
Earlier this week, news broke that Macy Gray's oldest daughter, Aanisah, had (supposedly) filed for a restraining order against her younger brother, Tracy, for growing violent toward their mother.
In court documents obtained by a popular media outlet, Aanisah was said to have listed,
"Tracy got into a physical altercation with my mom."
The 29-year-old allegedly expanded:
"He followed her and harassed her as he always does when he drinks."
Additionally, it was told that Tracy hit Aanisah's mate, Cornel, after he attempted to diffuse the situation and even proceeded to aggressively "bang on the doors" of their rooms until authorities arrived. Following Tracy's spiral, he also (reportedly) pushed his sister, and it was noted that the behavior had been a "constant" thing with him.
Further into the paperwork, Aanisah reportedly detailed being "afraid" of her sibling and cited the need for protection away from him as she's (reputedly) pregnant.
However, Tracy and Gray have since spoken out and denied the rumored dispute. In a five-minute video posted to her Instagram profile, Gray said,
"I just wanna clear this whole thing up about this going around about my family-talking about my son abuses me... and all this stuff. Nothing could be further from the truth. My son has never, ever, ever, ever, ever-would never-put his hands on me. Wouldn't even think about nothing like that."
"That's my dude! Like,... we would take a bullet for each other, and he's just not that kind of man. Me? I'm a lot of things, but I ain't no victim. ... I ain't gon' be over here, you know, [with] somebody hitting on me. And I don't mean that [offensively] to people who are in that situation. I don't mean to sound insensitive... but that's not my family's situation. You know? We're not dealing with that."
According to the "I Try" songstress, a restraining order was never filed. Instead, she sought a move-out order due to the verbal arguments she and Tracy have had throughout his time living with her and to make him "grow up a little."
Gray assumed that the mandate to vacate was only labeled as a restraining order due to it falling under the same umbrella in the state of California laws.
"It's so false. We didn't file a restraining order, we filed a move-out order. You know, so... me and my son get into it sometimes, and you know... I get really heated and I say, 'That's it! You're moving out.' You know? Um... but he loves his family, he loves his house, you know... he loves where we are."
The Grammy winner went on:
"He won't move! So, you know, he's twenty-seven years old. I'm just trying to, you know, get my son out in the world, doing his own thing... on his own. You know, I'm just trying to get him to grow up a little bit!"
Gray concluded by indicating that the media's portrayal of her daughter's words was (seemingly) false and twisted for shock value.
Sharing an article from the entertainment blog Onsite!, Tracy wrote on his Instagram Story:
"Fake news runs the world now lmao."
He then addressed other news sites, accusing them of defamation for running with the story. Tracy expressed:
"If you keep tagging me in your little posts, Hollywood Unlocked, all you guys... whatever, that's defamation. If you wanna sit down and have a talk with me and [let me] explain it to you... what happened, we can do that. But if you're gonna just keep lying on my name, then that's defamation, dude. And... yeah, that's a lawsuit."
To our knowledge, no additional statements have been given from either of Gray's daughters, Aanisah and Happy.
