His Death

Hosea died on September 21, 1998, in North Carolina due to the complication of a bone marrow transplant which was performed 1 ½ month ago. 

After the transplant, he was doing well about two weeks before his death. But, unfortunately, William II was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia a year before resting in peace.

He died at the age of 72.

His wife died in 2000 in Atlanta, Georgia, at the age of 75 due to thrombotic, thrombocytopenic purpura. 

Suicide At The Age Of 10 

Porsha gave an interview on the Tamron Hall show where she talked about her book and explained what she had written in her books. 

She started the interview by talking about her nervousness while launching the book she wrote and sharing her past story. 

She opened up that she wanted her book to be effective for the women who read it and wanted to inspire them. She made sure to be 100% honest while writing that book. 

She said she went back to the past incident and felt that entire painful thing while including those things in her book. 

She had written about the bad decision she had made when she was in her 20-30s. She revealed about her trying to kill herself when she was too small. 

Porsha mentioned that she tried swallowing pills to take her life, and when she tried to commit suicide, she was just a ten-year-old girl. 

She didn’t know what she was going through at that age. She was bullied in her school, which made her depressed, thinking of taking her life. 

She later realized that she was suffering from depression, but when she was 10, she didn’t know what was wrong with her. 

She then talked about including R. Kelly’s name in her book. Porsha wrote about the abusive relationship that she had with R. Kelly

R. Kelly mistreated her, took advantage of her and even physically abused her. At that time, she blamed herself for everything that was happening to her. 

She hated herself and didn’t value herself. She was a capable businesswoman, but still, she didn’t take her side. 

The reason behind her disclosing the name of R. Kelly in her book was him being one of the predators in Porsha’s life. 

She mentioned that many victims keep blaming themselves, and for those women, she wants them to stop doing that and value themselves.
