Former President Donald Trump has ignited controversy once again, this time with claims that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis had a romantic involvement with Young Thug’s YSL collective co-founder, Fremondo “Mondo” Crenshaw. The unsubstantiated allegations were made during a recent rally in New Hampshire, where Trump suggested that Willis had an affair with a “gang member.”
During the rally, Trump insinuated that Willis’ alleged connection to Mondo could compromise her ability to prosecute cases, particularly his own. He asserted, “They say there’s a young woman — a young racist in Atlanta — they say that she was after a certain gang and she ended up having an affair with the head of the gang or a gang member.”
Trump’s comments appear to stem from a Rolling Stone interview with Mondo earlier this year, in which he revealed that Fani Willis had represented him in a 2019 aggravated assault case. However, Willis has since transitioned into a tough-on-crime prosecutor and has been instrumental in pursuing a RICO indictment against Young Thug’s YSL crew. The collective faces accusations of operating as a “criminal street gang” responsible for a series of violent crimes in the Atlanta area.
Mondo, when interviewed by Rolling Stone, expressed disbelief at the allegations, asserting that they were far from Willis’ true character. He suggested that there may be political motivations behind the ongoing YSL case, implying that external influences were at play.
Rolling Stone journalist Andre Gee, who conducted the interview with Mondo, refuted Trump’s claims by clarifying that no mention or implication of a sexual relationship between Mondo and Willis was made during their conversation. Gee firmly addressed the issue on Twitter, stating, “This is my report. Mondo didn’t say or imply anything close to that at any point in our conversation.”
Donald Trump’s confrontations with Fani Willis have escalated as he faces potential legal challenges, including RICO charges, for his alleged involvement in election fraud during the 2020 presidential election.
Meanwhile, the YSL saga continues as Young Thug remains incarcerated while awaiting trial for RICO charges. YSL co-founder Mondo, though not implicated in the YSL case, recently found himself in legal trouble after missing a court date related to a separate incident. He was accused of strangling a woman, prompting a search of his home by federal agents, which led to the discovery of drugs, cash, and firearms.
As the legal proceedings unfold, the alleged affair claims remain unverified, serving as another chapter in the ongoing complexities surrounding Young Thug’s YSL collective and its legal entanglements.
