Roommates, the family of graduate student Jelani Day, whose body was found in the Illinois River, weeks after he was reported missing on August 24th, is still searching for answers surrounding his death. According to NBC News, his mother, Carmen Bolden, doesn’t believe the narrative about her son that he did something to himself and has hired civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, who represented George Floyd’s family, to bring them justice.
During a recent press conference at the Rainbow Push Coalition’s headquarters in Chicago, Attorney Crump demanded the FBI to investigate Jelani’s case as a federal hate crime. “We are asking the FBI to make this young, Black man named Jelani Day a priority just like they did the young white woman, Gabby Petito, because his life matters just like hers,” Attorney Crump pleaded.
He wasn’t the only one who spoke out at the conference. Carmen, standing beside Attorney Crump and Rev. Jesse Jackson, also made an emotional plea for her son’s death to be taken seriously. “I’m asking you. I’m imploring you. I’m begging you. I need to know what happened to my son,” Carmen said. “I need the FBI to come in and take over. … They need to make Jelani a priority.”
This isn’t the first time Carmen has pleaded to authorities to do more. As we previously reported in September, Carmen interviewed with Newsy, where she compared Gabby’s national coverage to the coverage her son received. She explained that Jelani hadn’t been getting coverage, although he had been missing for 24 days. Carmen also stated it seemed like the effort to find him has slacked down because everyone knew about Gabby, who at the time was only missing for two days, and the FBI immediately became involved.
Roommates, we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Sources Close To Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Address Kanye’s Claims Of Not Being Invited To Chicago’s Birthday Party, Say Ye Suggested Having Two Separate Celebrations
Earlier today, Kanye West made a video saying that his estranged wife Kim Kardashian, was keeping him from attending their daughter, Chicago’s birthday party. We spoke to sources close to Ye and Kim to get both sides of today’s ordeal.
Sources close to both Kanye and Kim tell The Shade Room it was Kanye’s idea to have two separate birthday parties for Chicago. Our source says, “It was news to Kim when he went on live today to say he didn’t have the info and that he wasn’t allowed to go when it was his idea to do two separate events. Kim at 12pm and Kanye at 4pm.”
Another source shares that “she [Kim] is trying to create boundaries and would like more privacy. It has nothing to do with co parenting or the kids.”
In addition, the source claims that the Kardashians have no way of predicting which events he wants to be invited to because “Kanye didn’t show up to Chicago nor Psalm’s birthday last year–nor show up on Christmas Day.”
They add that “Kim has always protected Kanye in an effort to protect the kids by dealing with their issues privately–and has never gotten in the way of allowing him to see his kids and makes every effort to give him full access to them regardless of what he wants the public to believe.”
Kanye West Alleges That Kim Kardashian Will Not Let Him Know Where His Daughter Chicago’s Birthday Party Is—Vows To “Control His Own Narrative”
Whew! Roommates, Kanye West is hurling some serious allegations at Kim Kardashian on the day of their daughter Chicago’s birthday. Kanye claims that despite him reaching out to multiple family members, no one will let him know where her party is today. He also says that will cause Chicago to think he wasn’t there for her and that’s far from the truth.
In a video showing him driving that quickly circulated on social media, Kanye West didn’t hold back at all with his claims against Kim Kardashian allegedly keeping him from celebrating their daughter Chicago West’s 4th birthday today.
“I’m just wishing my daughter a public happy birthday. I wasn’t allowed to know where her party was. It’s nothing legal, that’s saying that it’s the kind of games that’s being played. It’s the kind of thing that really affected my health for the longest… I’m being a father, the best father – the Ye version of a father – and I’m not finna let this happen, and we gon’ be in real-time with this, right here,” he said.
Kanye continuing, adding:
“Chicago, happy birthday. I love you. I’m just putting this online ‘cuz I need y’all support. I done called Kim, I texted the nannies, I got on the phone with Tristan, he said he’d ask Khloe. Won’t nobody give me the address to my daughter’s birthday party right now, and that’s gonna imprint in her mind that I wasn’t there for her, you get what I’m saying?”
Stating that he plans to “control his own narrative” instead of the one the media frequently puts out to the public, Kanye also said “This narrative not finna happen. There’s a lot of people that’s in a position where they ain’t got no voice when people be playing games like this – baby mamas be playing games, the grandma be playing games like this – and it’s like, as y’all know, they ain’t finna play like that, with me.”
It’s a lot going on ya’ll!
