Dwayne Deleston’s niece Jelani and sister Joy Deleston

Dwayne Deleston,the brother of rapper Juvenile’s baby’s mother, says that the rapper wasn’t a good father to his now deceased daughter Jelani. Dwayne claims that Juvenile ignored his daughter the whole time that she was alive. Dwayne,who is now incarcerated,has written a rather lengthy letter expressing his anger at his deceased niece’s father:

To whom it may concern,
I’m praying this information reach the right person to expose the truth about how Juvenile has used his deceased innocent daughter he ignored. My name is Dwayne Deleston and I’m the brother of Juvenile’s deceased baby mother Joy Deleston. It’s disturbing to know Juvenile never had a relationship with his deceased daughter but accepts the sympathy like he wasa good daddy to the child. It’s not fair to the people who care. Juvenile and his family are receiving all the condolences like they cared about my sister and her kids. Juvenile didn’t have a father and daughter relationship with my niece.My sister tried for years to communicate with Juvenile and his family concerning Jelani since Jelani’s date of birth to Jelani’s unexpected date of death but Juvenile and his mother ignored his child. Several days before the tragedy Juvenile told my sister, “he did not want nothing to do with her nor Jelani so stop sending pictures to his mother’s house because his wife didn’t know about Jelani and he is making arrangements to pay the owed excessive child support.” Jelani was before Juvenile’s marriage so his wife should have accepted her. That message Juvenile sent to his child before her death was heart-breaking to her and my family, and our Lord is my witness. In the eyes of the Lord, Juvenile will weep what he sow because he did not have a reasonable reason to deny Jelani. His wife should ask him what else is he hiding from her. For Juvenile to tell his mother to ignore one of his kids is cruel and unusual for a grandmother to do as she was told. I’m revealing a reality check. Juvenile never spoke to his daughter, he never was there for his daughter when she needed him the most nor did hecome to her funeral without a reasonable reason not to. Juvenile’s family was not at the funeral to show their sympathy. Juvenile nor someone from his family sent flowers nor a card nor called my mother to give their condolences. Juvenile saying, “he’s shocked and devastated” after hearing about my sister an her daughters death is hard to believe. Juvenile did a show hours after his daughter’s funeral in Augusta, G.A.

(Rapper Juvenile in Augusta,GA)

The final moment his daughter was on earth he did not witness because he did not care about her. Juvenile said, “he is a star and he did not want the attention on him at the funeral. “I’m incarcerated and I made it to the funeral, thanks to the understanding Warden and staff who participated in making sure I was present at the funeral.Three innocent people was killed. These killings got my family puzzled but all we have to do is continue to have faith in our Lord. There’s a reason for everything and God knows everybody’s heart. Juvenile needs to apologize to his deceased daughter Jelani and Jelani’s mother for wrongfully ignoring Jelani when she reached out to him.Juvenile needs to realize what’s in his heart reflects on the outside. I greatly appreciate your condolences in light of my loved ones death. May God bless you.This information is to inform you, you gave condolences to Juvenile and his family but they did not love his innocent daughter that was murdered.Personally I feel Juvenile used everybody’s sympathyfor his selfish means and its best for the people to know the truth. Juvenile ignored his innocent daughter without a reasonable excuse and I can not support someone like him.Sincerely,
Dwayne Deleston

  1. In reference to Mr. Deleston’s comment pertaining to Terius. First of all, you can not possibly be pointing any hand at Mr. Gray after your sinister little bratty sister attacked my son and I, tried to stalk other womens’ HUSBANDS, and did the very thing to my son that she reaped in Mr. Grey! For the record to all the public to be informed: If I recall, it was Joy 15 years ago who tried to keep my son from knowing her son, his brother! It was Joy who tried to attack my friend and pull her car window out while acting psycho over me. Joy, for everyone to know, was not a little angel. Because she was deceased in the manner she was and that she was a deputy, her fellow officers are trying to play her up to be so nice. Of course she brought her supervisor breakfast without his asking. She was on a mission. Of course she didn’t accept money from Vil Robinson for a role; she was on a mission. Even he said she was a talented actress. Did she do anything good for others? No. Joy met me and I said hi and she tried to fight. She tried to have me arrested, for no reason, tried to get my son taken, tried to destroy our lives, and she tried to keep our children from knowing one another. More than that, she tried to keep Anthony Sr from knowing or having anything to do with our son, Andre, who is 19 now and an exceptional man. Anthony Sr. is a dead beat as well and it does not excuse fathers not being in their children’s lives, but Joy tried to destroy any relationship between my son and his family SO WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND! She didn’t ever let up. When I relocated back to Atlanta, finished school, and was beginning a paralegal position in midtown , she called my job cursing my associates and acting irate until they called the police. Well it didn’t work and today I am an executive paralegal with that firm. The public has not seen the evil side of Joy who tried to physically attack a 4 year old and told her son that wasn’t his brother. They didn’t have her try to have their son taken from them. Woman already I see are coming out to speak of the Joy they experienced who tried to go after their husbands. It is all too sad that these children died and the whole situation with little Anth is so very sad. He wrote Andre and said he would like him to see him. I will never say no to this and I will never partake in speaking anything about what they discuss with anyone. However, Joy bragged to people that she worked voodoo and just was very evil speaking. So now I say everything she ascertained with an evil motive came back in her face. She tried to break up any relationship for my son and she tried to have little Anth to keep Anth Sr. and he dumped her. For all I cared, she could have had Anth Sr. I just wanted him to be in my son’s life and she was not having it. So I hear from Dwayne’s very own words that she sought Terius’s attention for her daughter. You portrayed her as broken hearted that he ignored her many requests. Well, WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND! At least I did not stalk Anth, Sr. From what you stated, it seems as though she was a groupie who damn near stalked Terius and his mother! I met and married my husband and we have a great life with our other three children. She exacted revenge on Anth Sr, bragging to people she’d get this football player to marry her, and she quickly became impregnated by him, then he dumped her, but she belittled me for getting a meager $178. a month from Anth Sr. when she bragged about immediately getting hundreds from this man! And I NEVER sought more because Andre said “Let him keep it. I don’t need his money”. Then she goes after Terius and brags thus more to people that she was going to get him. She was focus alright and immediately became impregnated by HIM and what does she do when Jelani was born? YOU GOT IT! Immediately, she doesn’t just have him served with papers. She has him ARRESTED for child abandonment without talking to him, but she damn sure called the media! Don’t misconstrue anything; a father should take care of his child but she was a stalker and when she didn’t get what she couldn’t, she was vicious! And I was bad for accepting a meager $178. a month but this little cunt took like $1400. from Terius? And he should pay what he is supposed to but she clearly was a gold digger and well, to Terius, you were so stupid! Should have been wearing a raincoat! Therefore, the house she couldn’t afford on a deputy’s salary that she used these men for, the children she, unfortunately, used as well in an eerily manner/ selfish manner; it is all gone. And so I say it is sad for the children but hey; she did sew so many ruthless, merciless, evil seeds and I so agree with her brother, you DO reap what you sew! For any woman who experienced the Joy I did, I am certain, by all accounts, that you forgive her, but would agree, she sewed a lot of bad seeds, indeed. What is in the dark ALWAYS comes to light and ALWAYS what goes around in this circle of life comes around, every time. I could NEVER, in a million years, exact to hurt another woman and her innocent child. Never. It just goes to prove what CHARACTER she liked thereof.

  2. Mrs. Johnson,it sounds like you are very upset-and psychotic. I say psychotic, because this is about the third article that I have read that you have left negative replies about Joy.I just need to know how this is relevant to the innocent lives that were taken and Juvenile receiving publicity? That is what this is about.You had a personal problem with Joy and you did not like her, but you need to let go and let God. Pray for your enemies and thier families and God will bless you.Joy is not here to defend herself. Do you think your blessings come through defamation?The fact of the matter is that Terius Gray was wrong for his actions and inactions-since the birth of Jelani. He has received much attention from the slaying of his daughter, and has shown nothing but blatant disrespect, since. That has nothing to do with Joy as a mother or a person, but everything to do with Terius Gray as a man and a father.If you have succeeded as the professional that you claim to be, move on with your life and discontinue your vengeance towards Joy. She and her family has suffered enough. Please— allow her and the girls to rest in peace.Find forgiveness!We are not in a fight with the dead; it is the living that we struggle with.

  3. […] JUVENILE WAS A DEADBEAT DAD! Mar 22, 2008 Author: admin | Filed under: Celebrity Pictures Dario wrote an interesting post today onHere’s a quick excerptMy sister tried for years to […]

  4. Johnson, as you say “you reap what you sew” well I suggest you apologize to Ms. Deleson and her girls because there is also the saying what goes around comes around. For you to speak so ill mannered about a deceased person who does not have the right to defend herself is asinine. Mr. Deleson spoke that of Juvenile’s distant relationship with Jelani and the fact that he is taking the sympathy of others to keep for himself when he had no other part of the child’s life other than making her, nothing should have ever been said FROM YOU of Ms. Deleson’s way of life. People do things in life which I am sure she had HER OWN REASON FOR DOING. Maybe she felt the need to do as she did to provide for her family, who knows. Fact is, it really does not matter anymore. Ms. Deleson is gone and everything she has done in life should be laid to rest with her as well not brought out and deform her image while she lays in peace.

  5. It is so unfortunate that a time like this one should find it in their troubled mind and heart to tarnish the names of the dead. Melissa you need help! It is so obvious that Joy had all the things you wish you had. Everything her brother wrote is the truth. So often a single mother is put in a position to choose between what is right for their child and in Joy’s case she choose to make a man stand up and take responsibility for his actions,what’s so wrong with that? You claim to be so successful and have accomplished so much but all that couldn’t possibly make you happy because you continue to bash the name and character of someone that you claim to have had confrontations with in the past, just let it go. Dwayne had every right to expose the fact that Juve was not a part of Jelani’s life, and for his mother not to at least acknowledge her grandchild is sad. All women especially mothers themselves should at least encourage their son’s to do right by their children. There was no doubt that Jelani was Juve’s daughter because it is in plain view for all the world to see and Joy didn’t make him do anything he didn’t want to do. No one has the right to sit up and pass judgement on Joy for the way she handled her business as a single mother, she did what she had to do as a single mother. Melissa sounds like you are still jealous of Joy even in her death she still continues to out shine you.

  6. Melissa you are STUPID and you show it well, LET IT GO & YOU NEED JESUS!!!

  7. I hope all rest in peace. Life is a beautiful thing that people take for granted and to give birth from apart of your own soul is a blessing. Some people just can’t open their eyes enough to notice it. Jelani is a beautiful little girl that has servered her purpose on earth and she didn’t need Juvi to do it. God has a will that will be carried out and Juvi is apart of that will. God Bless all.

  8. It appears, Melissa Johnson should be a suspect in this case despite the fact that the police has Mr. Terrell in custody. There may be someone else involved in this case, Mr. Terrell and Jelani and Miaciah had it all and Joy always put them first. Rest in Peace Joy, Jelani and Miaciah and may Mr. Terrell find God!

    As for Mr. Gray he’ll never be a father to Jelani or his other kids, it’s apparent he loves his lifestyle more than he loves his family. Family comes first over material things and money.

  9. TO DWAYNE”S FAMILY WHO TRY TO TALK ABOUT MELISSA ON HERE < I MET HER AND SHE GOT WHAT SHE DESERVED!!! Everyone else read my comment on the next blog! Joy is dead and can’t hurt anyone else again and Juvenile didn’t want her!! HELLO!! She is gone BYE BYE!!! And you can’t talk about Juvenile ! You are in prison!!! Like I said, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! Andre brings his mother roses and Joy’s son killed her! Self explanatory! She was a PSYCHO and she slept with all these married men at that! She raised her son in the likes of her and hell no I don’t feel sorry for her and all of us who she acted psycho for, none of care that shes is gone bye bye!! Don’t point a finger at Juvenile when your ho sister as YOU described damn stalked him! Sounds like stalking to me! Everyone else but these Delestons on her, read my comment on the other blog. We’re gonna make up a blog for all the wives and girlfriends who Joy slept with their men to have a say! It will be FILLED UP!!! SHE”S DEAD NOW!! Hey Juvenile, you don’t have to pay child support to the bitch anymore!!!

  10. Carla and Melissa—you two are some disrespectful, hateful, and pretty much IGNORANT BITCHES!I feel sorry for you!May God have mercy on both of your wicked souls.

  11. Oh yeah—I see why you two are friends…Financially, you may be successful (or so you may think?), but mentally & spiritually- you guys are LOSERS!

  12. You need to be upset with the father of your child. We as women need to stop tearing each other down. Also, please move on, because you sound like a crazy person. This woman is dead and you still need to talk about her? Look at your self in the mirror and you will see a Desperate, low self-esteem, border line insane person. It is not the child’s fault that he is here, and in addition his family MUST HAD like you in the first place so don’t blame the child, blame the adults. For you to disrespect the dead and think it is ok says that you are a fool. Please get help. Your husband need to leave you alone, he must not know that you are still holding on to old crap. YOU ARE THE EPITIOMY OF BAG LADY. LET IT GO LET IT GO!

  13. To Carla,

    keep talking, you number my be up soon.

  14. Carla and Melissa you need to get on with it . How dare you ! Your comments are arrogant as ever and filled with oure evil. I will begin topray for you . It takes two to tango . I bet your HUSBANDS WASNT CALLING YOU NAME WHEN THEY WERE WITH JOY OH WHAT A JOY. BET THAT ISH IRKS YOU BITCHES

  15. Melissa and Carla you two are typing all this nonsense, yet you were at the funeral paying respects..Such hypocrites. Get a life bitches. I see you can type all you want on a blog, yet you did not say anything at the funeral. You are pathetic bitches. But, I will be glad to forward this to those who loved Joy and yes IP tracker works wonders. Good luck explaining this to the police when I assure them to look at the two of you as suspects because you obviously have such hate..hmmm makes one wonder what kind of influence two GROWN women can have on an innocent little boy.


  17. I could not beleive my eyes when I read this all I can say is I agree (WHAT GOES AROUND COMES RIGHT BACK AROUND) Melissa AND Carla you 2 better pray fo forgiveness real quick the clock is ticking oOH I DIDINT FORGET ABOUT YOU MR. JUVENILLE OR LITTLE BOY YOU ARE SORRY AS THEY COME . R.I.P MS.JOY AND LIL JELANI GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY AND MAY THEY FIND STRENGTH IN THE LORD .

  18. WOW! I can’t believe ppl are that heartless and to express all that shyte with your real names! My eart bleeds for the chilren, especially the baby girl cos it sounds like she was born into drama. I wish ppl would start making babies outta love instead of lust cos black babies already have it bad…damn!



  21. I wasn’t going to leave a response however, as a family member I can’t leave this website without responding. I’ve known Joy for 33 years and have never heard anyone spoke ill of her until now. Joy was a true phenominal woman and she learned to be from her mother, Mildred R. Deleston. There’s always three sides to a story; her side, his side, and the truth. The events that happened has been done; no should or can judge. When its all done Juvenile has the lord to answer to as well as Carla and Melissa. Joy didn’t need any man to help raise her children because she was strong enough to do it on her own. Her children were motivation; she lived for all three of them. After 15 years and Joy’s death Melissa; that is disgraceful. Tell the truth, Joy was the main girlfriend and you were the chick on the side that knew about Joy and didn’t care. That’s the real reason you are so bitter. Everything Melissa and Carla has said about my cousin is a Bold Face Lie!! Rest in Peace Joy, Michaci, And Jelani. Anthony, I love you and will continue to pray for you

  22. GROW UP


  24. To the Deleston relatives who do not have the right to say a word about anyone who Joy tried to run over, ESPECIALLY me , whom she slept with my husband whom she met when he was a trooper AND CALLED ME RELENTLESSLY! Joy was a very needy woman and so her crack head brother described in his whining how she stalked down Juvenile and his wife when she tried to force a baby on them! She slept with so many married men that we are now learning she had no morals and had three different sperm donors for her children! She was a nasty bitch whore and we are happy this PSYCHO is gone! Looks like her own son had no love and no respect for a whore who bragged that she could get married men to take up with her! I learned from my husband that she took it in the back door and I think she was a disgusting slut who deserved to go straight to hell where she belongs!

  25. I am the ex of Dwayne Deleston and he won’t be out of prison for yes you are correct crack until 2016. Yo all have to excuse him because he is bipolar and he used crack so much that it effected him seriously. He can’t talk about Juvenile cause he beat on ladies and used money for his children on crack. Many people did not like Joy and she was a real bitch. I had no problem in not commenting til I see how stupid Dwayne has become cause he really needs to stop. He is in prison for a reason just like his sister went the way she did. Anthony had NO respect for his mother cause she was a tramp in front of him and she showed that boy no love cause she didn’t want him to begin with. She did stalk Juvenile and when a man didn’t want her she’d pop up with a baby. They both were children who if they couldn’t have their way they’d try to force shit on others and this is the result of how Mildred raised her children.


  27. We have all sinned and come short of the glory of God! Now I do not know Joy but I know that she was someone’s mother, someone’s daughter and find it disturbing that any could speak of her the way that the two women above spoke of her. Despite what has been done to you two bitter women in the past, that is when it happened in the past and that is where it should stay, in the past. You speak of this woman in such a way, that it is obvious that nothing but pure jealousy and envy would have you to say such things. Now, I could sit here all day and tell you both how wrong you are for the things you said about this woman, but let me just leave you with this : Judge not, that ye be not judged, Matt. 7: 1. Oh, and I will have you know a women cannot make a man take something that he don’t want.I can only pray that God may have mercy on your souls. And to Joy’s family you all are in my thoughts and in my prayers! You have my deepest condolences!

  28. The cunt’s son got a trial date for January 4 and better he got her ass than one of the married womens she was screwing there husbands. Lesson to learn girls:::: DON’T FUCK MARROED MEN AND TRY TO TRICK THEM TAKE MOST THE MONEY AND LET YOUR SON SEE IT BECAUSE IT MAY COMES BACK TO BITE YOUR ASS!!!! I read alots of people hated her. One less bitch out there fucking with everyone. Now her house she got with Juvies money gone, the breeders pawn girls gone, the son he abouts to be gone and the bitch fryin in hell where she belong. Peace to you Terius! This your peppa for you!!!!

  29. what the…

  30. […] they are. For many it will be a revelation, for some a confirmation of hopes and dreams. Tags: | food blog | baking | travel tips | ramblings | jewelry | Posted by admin on October 18th, 2011 :: Filed […]
