Despite having spent the last 25 years touring venues around the world and earning critical acclaim for her unmistakable brand of Soul music, veteran songstress Macy Gray has managed to keep her personal life notoriously private and separate from her professional.
That changed recently when her daughter, Aanisah Hinds, took to the local authorities to file a temporary restraining order against her own brother, Tracy Melvin Hinds, with claims that he constantly “abuses” them.
According to court documents obtained by ‘The Blast,’ Aanisah accused her brother Tracy of getting into a “physical altercation” with their GRAMMY-winning mom and allegedly “harassing” everyone in their household.
Claiming she was advised by police to file a restraining order against him, Aanisah detailed her brother’s alleged abuse – asserting it was due to his alcoholism.
“Tracy got into a physical altercation with my mom [Gray], he followed her and harrassed her as he always does when he drinks. My boyfriend [Cornel] tried to remove my mom but he continued to follow them until he fought my boyfriend,” she stated on the record. “We waited for cops to come while he continued to bang on the doors of our rooms, looking for confrontation. After he was out of the house, we locked the doors, but he came back through a window and began harassing [us] again. Later, he pushed me, and he has done so many times.”
She is seeking protection for herself, her boyfriend, and Macy.
At the time of this report the ‘I Try‘ singer has not publicly addressed the claims.
