Over the weekend, gospel singer Thomas ‘TC’ Clay was found dead in his hotel room, and Jazmine Sullivan took to social media to share her memories of him in a post that had many raising their eyebrows.
“I didn’t know Tc very well. What I do know is I gave him my number accidentally thru a friend and he reached out consistently for a year. I think I replied maybe 3 times but that never stopped him from writing me. He was DETERMINED lol,” the singer allegedly wrote in what appears to be a since-deleted post, going on to describe how he brought her flowers and sang her a song.
She said that she had realized how gifted he was when he “made up an entire 5 min song abt me” and went on to say that she was “enraptured w his gift.”
Sullivan rounded out the post with a picture of herself saying, “Just know I was YOUR fan Tc!!! (Cuz I know u still gotta crush on me in heaven and u listening).”
Sullivan was dragged all over the Twittersphere for the eulogy, which she has since deleted, as many users claimed that it was self-centered to write a eulogy about herself more than about TC.

Jazmine Sullivan wanted to make sure he knew, just in case he was reading from Heaven, that she dont like him like that.
