Popular media personality Amelia ‘Milk’ Sewell sat for a chat with Lauren Dunn of the Lauren O Lauren show. Though they talk about Milk’s experience as Vybz Kartel’s Assistant on dating reality series Teacha’s Pet, the bulk of the conversation surrounded Milk’s Sex Tape scandal from four years back.
In the tape she was performing oral sex with her with then boyfriend ZJ Liquid, real name Michael Brissett.
She revealed that after finding out about the tape, her first thoughts were of her her son.
“My son is old enough to understand. I just equipped him with the response to anything that anyone could ever say about the tape. He goes to Wolmer’s…believe u me, no one said anything to him, no teacher asked him about it…They just kept it contained and they saved him from going to school every day and being jeered.”
Milk who had been at CVM TV for six years (and on Zip FM before that) also expressed her disappointment in CVM for axing her after the tape leaked.
“I really, really wished and hoped that they stood behind me and made something of it…They didn’t work with me and I was very, very disappointed in how they reacted and how they treated the situation. They wanted me to stay out of the public eye when it happened…I didn’t feel like I needed to hide away from the public because I didn’t do anything wrong.”
Milk also spoke about the double standard in Jamaica regarding her situation, considering that the person she was with was her boyfriend of 5 years. She says that she lost a couple friends but her fans were with her thanks to Tony Matterhorn who big her up in public and used his influence as a DJ to ease the process.
She also expressed disappointment that no women’s group reached out to her. Lisa Hanna (current Minister of Culture) was the first person to call and reassure her. Such a stand up act.
Milk revealed that she is an up-coming artist, looking for the right song to get her “buss” some radio people and producers are “Kind of iffy” because she’s typecast as the TV personality
