Sarah Martin has posted a response to the firestorm of controversy caused by her “Peace, Nigga” diary sign-off the other day. She writes: “My goodness…I guess I have some explaining to do, huh?? Just so you all know, I haven’t read any of the posts since this “n” word issue. Am I scared to? I guess deep down…ya maybe. (I don’t deal with confrontation very well. I’m very strong on many levels, but confrontation is not my forte’.) The girls told me some of the responses and I think I get the point.”

We screen captured the message for evidence. Moderators have been removing critical reactions from the singer’s website, bringing more controversy with it. Kita wrote, “I can understand negative language or straight up dogging on someone to be deleted, but when someone makes a valid point in a mature manner…well, deleting that makes the people who run the site seem like they can’t handle hearing that sort of thing.” Trish countered, “It’s not censorship. Most of those comments were crude and uncalled for. The language was unreal, and i’m glad to see them gone. No official site would put up with that.”

A pal of his ex-fiance said, “Sarah has had it with AJ’s on-again, off-again drinking. She has been the idean fiance, supporting him every step of the way. Sarah even attended the Al-Anon meetings to help AJ overcome his drinking problem. On top of that, she forgave him when she found out he was cheating on her with a girl he met at AA. Then he goes out and starts getting loaded again. What a kick in the head for her!”
