I think its about time some people start showing Lee Priest the human being a little bit of support, rather than getting so excited by all of the controversy that surrounds him. This is a person who's life and career have fallen apart for no real good reason besides the fact that he tried to make a stand for his fellow bodybuilder in an effort 2 create new opportunity. Let's not forget he's devoted himself 2 this since he was just a kid...now what? Speak up and help this guy get one more shot. People make mistakes. Havent you?

<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=6 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class=alt2 style="BORDER-RIGHT: 1px inset; BORDER-TOP: 1px inset; BORDER-LEFT: 1px inset; BORDER-BOTTOM: 1px inset">I really want to know who this "Rhaine" woman I spoke to yesterday morning is, She is the one that sent me an email from Lee's aol acct with a pic (that I couldn't see) supposedly with his wrists cut. She assured me that he had tried to take his life and was in the hospital. Lee's cel # was no longer working (not really unusual - he changes cel phone #'s about once every month or two).
She had an Aussie accent and a 773 area code on her cell phone.
Rhaine is a psycho Lee worshipper that is in love with him and the two of them according to her have been involved for over a year. They have had a weird relationship since I've known her, she asked for and he gave her his dog. She is originally from South Africa and is or was living in Chicago. Last I heard from her, through PM and phone call, she and Lee had worked things out and she was moving to Scottsdale, and the two of them were going to try living together and working on their relationship. She posts on here under the name "Ocean Blue", and on his board as "Rockon4ever". Lee would ban her from his board and in a couple of days, she'd be back. Rhaine once told me that he PM'd several guys on his board that had been talking to her and warning them to stay away from her, this according to her (so take it for what it's worth). The crazy part is she's a or was a pre-school teacher and was supposed to begin a new job in Scottsdale. If she started this rumor then she is even more crazy than I told her over and over again that she was. I finally got to a point where I had to cut off all contact with her, due to not knowing what was real and what was fantasy.
I truely wish the best for Lee and hope that he cleans his life of all the negativity.
FYI-here'san update posted on Lee's board by Scott, one of the admin...
Looks like that girl who emailed Ron from Lee's aol account was not being very truthful...hmmmm... Why whould she email such pics to him and say Lee tried [code]to take his own life??? Way to go, girl! [/code]
"Lee will post soon...last time I talked to him (yesterday), he was driving down the highway coming from San Diego (I think it was San Diego).
He was laughing his ass off about the rumor...All is well in Leeville!
