Reggie Benjamin: Part 2

Over the years I’ve written about a lot of random things from spotting Indian people in the wild to music thoughts – some years I’ve been more consistent in writings, and others well, let’s just say less so. But the one posting which has gotten the most hits bar none is my one I did a few years back on Indian superstar music sensation Reggie Benjamin. Now the posting highlighted the fact that he was really not the entirely robust on talent…. And moreover the he may be a borderline fraud. The comments however have taken a life of their own. Look I’m not exactly cnn.com that gets a bagillion comments to each asinine posting so I think 50 comments is a pretty good hit ratio. And what’s even better is that there is a regular trickle of a comment or two every month or so. Good times all around.
Now just for a moment stop being a selfish bastard and put yourself in my shoes . Everyday I putz about my regular life and my inbox gets a periodic interruption from a notice from blogspot that someone how commented to an posting I wrote 6 years ago. Now I don’t look at the ol’ blog every day but the random reminders that I have one is helpful. With the recent comments – all of which center on him being a fraud and/or terrible looking - I’ve gotten more blog reminders than normal. So it’s funny to think that perhaps Reggie Benjamin’s awfulness has both (1) brought together a hodge-podge of random readers who hath been wronged by him and (2) pushed me back into writing.

Who would’ve thunk?

So with that I think it was only apt that I do something proper with Reggie Benjamin that was more insightful than simply writing about what I think of him… no no no, I need to go big. I need to interview Reggie and I’m going to figure out a way.

Shakes you got to go on his twitter account and watch his online show. It's even worse than his music career. The guest are a joke. He claims Justin Bieber ripped off his song. He claims Joe Simpson tried to become his manager. The lies are bigger than ever.

Dude the first reggie post was legendary. You HAVE to contact that fool for an interview. Friend him on facebook, that's your best way in.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE write a follow up story. He is a scammer. Just follow what he did in Chicago with all of the clubs he opened and closed. Taking victims the whole way through. Opened and closed 3 clubs in 2 1/2 years. Has NEVER done anything of significance, yet continues to boast how he is so connected.

Anonymous said...

All his claims are 100 percent false. He never sold out any arenas. No record of any top ten songs anywhere? He is way too ugly to have been a model? He has written articles in magazines that you pay to publish? He wrote himself sexiest Indian male and gave himself an award as the first Indian American pop star? Unbelievable the lies this monkey will spread? He has 4 civil suits filed against him just go to dupage county records to check it out. He is a broke 42 year old con man.

What happened to LA Reg? It went down faster than a Reggie nightclub?

CNBC has a show called American Greed. It profiles con men like Reggie. We need them to do a feature on the self proclaimed first Indian American sexiest man? Show how his bullshit PR works and all the investors in his nightclubs ?

Who would win a fight between Justin Bieber and Reggie Benjamin ? Both are about the same size? Justin 20 and Reggie 45? Probably Justin? Reggie old and would run out of gas first?

Reggie is the Indian Bernie Madoff . His family must be so proud.

Please someone explain how this con man is still around and not in jail?

Did anyone else see that video where he claims to have eaten at the salvation army for 17 years??? WTF - this guy is from Hinsdale one of the wealthiest suburbs in Illinois.

Also another few things I want to make clear. If you look at any of his promo videos on youtube, the crowd shots are completely fake. The reason I know this is that I was at the so called All State Arena performance where he supposedly sold out the place with no opening act. In reality, the show was actually one of those Mega Star Bollywood shows where the actors come and sing and dance. He paid the sponsors to basically sing one song before the whole thing. I was there and the whole crowd was Indian and had no idea who this joker was. Nobody was clapping or cheering at all. Reggie actually spliced in footage of a completely fake white crowd. Unbelievable!

I heard Reggie has a new boyfriend. A former singer named Eric Benet

Reggie caused so much damage and harm in the state of Illiinois that he now has been spotted in my state of California. I have contacted the state attorney general here to warn him about this con man doing damage in our state?

Doesn't Reggie new boyfriend Eric Benet look creepy? Another has been .

Heard his gal picks up dog shit to pay the rent? I guess the royality checks from his top 10 hits in Iraq or LA Reg don't cover the rent.

Reggie and his girl are obsessed with going around Hollywood asking celebrities to take a picture with them. They are so star struck its sick.

Milk Dud Hurd you were so wrong congratulating Reggie for selling out Allstate arena . He claimed to sell out the place with no opening act. Truth is he was the opening act for a Bollywood show he paid to be the opening act. So many lies from Reggie.

Reggie Benjamin is a fraud and Con man from Chicago just look up his Public records and it will show everything, There is no record of him in India( No one knows him, nor does he Know how to speak the language) His record company is false, never made any money, His claims of acting and selling records all false( Once again just look it up) Everything on his WIKIPEDIA page is false, every nightclub he has been associated with has closed down,



He has Filed for Chapter 13 two times, and Chapter 7 ( very recent as well) Every corporation he has or LLC HAS CLOSED down ( no money) he as over 320,000 dollars in liens, and Federal cases and civil suits against him,



Once again just look all this up, this guy is a fraud and its a shame he is using a Save her Charity as a front to take money from people This is the worst type of person..His whole life he has been a fraud..
