So Norwood Young Isn't Broke Or Using A Sugardaddy Afterall?

Looks like Norwood Young isn't going broke afterall.  Despite reports of selling his L.A. mansion at a dirt cheap price and having to reach out to an alleged sugardaddy, we've found out that's not the case.

 

Deets inside....

We were one of the sites to receive the bad info about just what was going on with Mr. Norwood Young and how his lifestyle came to be.  And we decided to get to the bottom of it for the real deal once and for all.

Folks have been wondering for years exactly who Norwood is and how he copped his interesting 7 Bed/7 BR & 4,832 sqft home for $1.2 mill back in '97.  Most haven't heard his songs he stays he makes his money from.  But it looks like he's going to make more mula from his upcoming estate sale for his interesting decor, his books, Broadway, and putting his house on the market for $1.79 mill (he just came down from his $2.4 mill ask).

Just what has Mr. Norwood done in the entertainment world you ask?  We asked too.  And found these little nuggets of info.  According to L.A. Blockshopper:

Young is a singer, author and activist. He is also the author of Getting Back To My Me, an inspirational memoir that sheds light on the devastating effects of childhood sexual abuse. He first auditioned for the leading role of James Thunder Early in the off Broadway production of Dreamgirls, wherein he got the lead role.
He was also seen on the Broadway shows, Momma I want to Sing, Part.2 and Don't Get God Started and A Good Man is Hard to Find. He is also the owner of the nightclub, Club Collage.

Norwood also told us recently that his "look" is due to sex abuse issues, not vanity or sexual orientation reasons as previously reported.  He actually revealed details about it back in February when he included it in his book:

"Keeping this a secret, it manifested into drug abuse. It manifested into psychosis. It manifested into self-mutilation in the form of more than 15 plastic surgery procedures.  I had the voice of my cousin in my head saying, 'Shut up! It's supposed to hurt. You're a pretty boy,' so I didn't want to look like that, didn't want to look like myself. I don't like my eyes, I don't like my cheeks. I would just change this stuff. And I was able to mask the reality with these idiosyncrasies in a show business community where they're not only accepted, but admired."

We stand corrected.  Now we know....

I have drove by this house everyday on my way home and wondered who the hell owned it. It is the most ridiculous house in Hancock Park. LOL. There are literally over 30 statues of David in the front of the house.

GOD bless u norwood. For everyone on here posting negative comments if u don't know what a person has been through in their life don't judge. If u can't say anything good or pray for somenone then don't don't say nothing at all. We all have things that we go through in life and if you have not been through anything then all I can say to you is just keep on living u r not going to be in this world without ups and downs. The bible says that the rain falls on the just and the unjust. And no one is perfect but GOD.

Well I see dumbass black girl

Well I see dumbass black girl on the site again with her dumbass comments...Go sit on a dick and stop judging people..When someone is abused you don't know what effect it has on them unless you have been in that situation,so in this case if you have nothing nice to say then don't say anything at all. By the way, Grow up little girl!

For those people who were

For those people who were praising Natasha yesterday for not reporting on the Beyonce fake pregnancy rumor maybe she should have used her same bias attitude toward this guy. It's sad that the story about him was not fact checked before it was reported. This just goes to show that if Natasha or her staff does not worship the ground you walk on they will report any bs they hear about you, truth or not.

Just because you are not

Just because you are not seeing people showing every two seconds of their lives in the blogs and press or just because someone isnt in pop music, tv or movies doesnt mean they are broke. They are huges fanbases around the world for other forms of entertainment that doesnt involve rap, rock or r&B. Folks are racking up traveling at corporate events and other performances/special events. Good for him. I am happy that he has aired his pain so that others sufferug the same can see a way out. I dont know who he is or what he does but it doesnt mean hes not paid well. It only means my world is small and I need to look beyond my box to see there is much more to life than what I see and hear.

I'm still not clear on how

I'm still not clear on how selling his home for nearly half a million more than he paid for it makes it a "bargain basement" price, unless he paid quite a bit for upgrades. If he actually gets the asking price, that's a major accomplishment in the current real estate market!

I sympathize with Norwood.

I sympathize with Norwood. In my line of work, it seems that after children have been sexually abused, it's VERY hard for them to get back to normal. They tend to show out in different ways. Some cross dress, become homosexual or engage in promiscuous behavior. Im not saying ALL people who have been sexually abused act a certain way. Im just making a general statement from my observations. I hope that Norwood is happy and on the right path but I do sympathize with this brother. I think he's being very honest here.

Are you serious Natasha - OFF

Are you serious Natasha - OFF Broadway don't pay nothing, even for the James Early (supporting) role. Momma I want to Sing ~ another minimum revenue play..., and the rest are also all low-budget plays that didn't finance that mini-mansion. As for the club, being a part owner means you share revenue &&&& EXPENSES. Sit back & watch where old Norwood lands - he and his silicon sister will be sharing a 1 BR in Encino soon. hehehehehe!

This failed to accurately dispute the claims of his money woes. So, you listed his vitae/resume but that doesn't say he isn't bankrupt. Come on "theybf" title your post appropriately. Also, do further research before posting an article.
