Former Henchman Employee Said Rev. Al Sharpton And Mogul Were Close – A former employee of Rosemond, Tony Martin, testified a week ago today that his boss forged a strong relationship with activist and preacher Rev. Al Sharpton. After Rosemond’s son was roughed up by an associate of rappers 50 Cent and Tony Yayo, he reached out to Sharpton to help intervene. Rosemond allegedly began funding plans for an unnamed talk show featuring Sharpton as well as paying for expenses, plane trips and other items. With Martin facing 20 years and having made a deal with the feds, Rosemond’s defense claims him as a shaky witness.
