To be clear this isn’t the first time Tonesa Welch has called out Starz for BMF.
Season two of the show hit our screens in January, produced by Randy Huggins and 50 Cent it details the life of brothers “Big Meech” and Terry ‘Southwest T” Flenory who ran BMF (Black Mafia Family).
LaLa’s character is Markaisha Taylor and Terry’s love interest is often linked to real-life Mafia First Lady Tonesa Welch.
Welch has been pretty vocal about BMF because they have explicitly told her that the story was not based on her life, but Tonesa isn’t buying it.
My likeliness is being used in the BMF series. Where I was told they wanted no parts of my story. I’m a #real #victimofdomesticviolence. I shared my trauma to help other women and it was a healing process for me and my family.
Me and my family discuss me sharing along with my abuser who I forgiving.
My abuse should not have been use in a story line or told by a person I thought once care for me.
Why use the most hurtful part of my life. Why #Markishataylor this supposedly character who’s not suppose to be me be a victim of abuse? Y’all didn’t use my name but my real life is played out every Friday.
I’m not ashamed of what I been through. I’m just shocked! If #markisha is not me, y’all couldn’t of thought of no other story line to use?
This is pre-Terrys life and BMF. . I’m and Ex- Producer of a show I know how goes. You could of demanded anything similar to me not be use but clearly you needed me for this true story. If you hated me that bad!!! And didn’t want me to get a check or credit! I wish before I got sentence to prison y’all could of said your honor!! This women was “Not BMF” let her go home. Don’t wait until I get 5rs. Real talk.
I’m aware that a lot of this show is made up you can write what you like. Y’all was calling 50/Starz like I rob ya!!.
Please people don’t get what I’m saying like I’m upset I was cool with their decision. Walk away like a G!
Because I knew what I was going to do!! I always come back this was a minor setback for the comeback. Don’t exploit victims to get ratings or to get the sympathy of the viewers.
Let me share it or people who gossip and don’t know me personally not y’all. I’m love by a lot of people and for the last 3 weeks this has been a hot topic of my life. Yes I been talking and sharing with 50cent since 2016 and this is not his fault we clearly came to an understanding. When it comes to victims talk to them let them share how they felt their emotions ask how would it affect them and their offsprings. I’m alive and living.
This could have been a conversation between me and everyone responsible. I was going to be put back in prison and beat up. Look at God! ? Hey
In another post Tonesa called out a part of the story that, according to her makes Markaisha seem like a pediphile, making it clear that she did not kiss her man until he was 25.
WTF who wrote this part of the Story.Terri 17 I’m 26 years my Husband a king pen but I’m having sex with a 17 year old who’s supposedly still in high school. So before Terri goes on the run he comes to my job, its close for the day we sneak in the janitors room and have Sex. I guess he’s to young to have an apartment he’s still in high school or lives with his parents. I guess they have Markisha looking like a pedophile if This was reverse and Markisha was 17 years old y’all be trying to put him in jail. Why are they portraying this role like this. Omg RandyHuggins this is sad. I never kiss this man until he was 25 years old. This is crazy ??? This is what happens when you hire the wrong representative. Please no more DM’s don’t ask me why I can’t explain it. But half y’all believe this sick shtt. Markisha character is shown in bad likeness I don’t agree with the timeline or the character traits. This show pretends it’s not me but everybody in Detroit or half the country know it’s me. Who else work at the insurance company? ????
What is your opinion? Should Tonesa feel slighted by the character since most people seem to link her life to the role?
Or is she reaching?
On the low, after watching hella documentaries on BMF, I already knew exactly who @lala is supposed to be portraying. She favors Tonesa Welch (Terry’s ex). That’s why they casted her.

Her character is based off “Tonesa Welch” lol in real life she was older than terry she was getting abused and she was married and she was like BMF First Lady pretty much but idk I think Lala character may need to develop stronger over time lol

It’s based on true events tho. The lady she plays is tonesa Welch. She started messing with terry when he was a teenager. She’s like 10 years old than him?.
