According to TMZ, Jessica Brown reportedly helped Desiigner's sister Siera Shelby gain admission to Howard University. From there the story gets murky. Jessica claims to have helped Siera get a storage unit while she was enrolled. Several months later, she pulled out school leaving her belongings inside the storage locker. Brown claims to have reached out to Siera who did not want to reclaim her possessions. That's where the perspectives on the situation seem to diverge.

This comment which was left by Desiigner on his Instagram Page, is at the heart the defamation suit. He claims that Jessica Brown tried to extort money out him during the enrolment process.

We'll let the courts decide where the truth lies.
