56 years of age, Kevin Samuels’ name became a trending topic on Twitter Thursday afternoon. This Friday morning the world of men and women are speaking out their personal thoughts of Samuels and his ways.

According to reports from reliable sources, Samuels, a self-proclaimed relationship guru and image consultant who is best known for his misogynistic comments about black women, in particular, has died.

Samuels’ most recent social media activity, as his Facebook had not been updated since at least Tuesday. His final tweet was posted in April, but that post was linked to his Instagram.

The last video he posted on his YouTube channel was about the aforementioned “Modern Women” and was published at the same time as the Instagram post on Wednesday.

Samuels has gained a following through the way he addresses black women. His image consulting agency works with “men who want to improve their appearance,” according to his website.

He was in the news recently for all the wrong reasons for describing women who are at least 35 and not married as “leftover” women.

“If you made it to 35 and you’re not married, you’re a leftover woman,” Samuels said on her podcast last month. “You’re what’s left over. Men know there’s probably something wrong with you. Whether you want to hear it or not, I’m going there with you. I’m telling you the truth you don’t want to hear.

Men know there’s probably something wrong with you. And here’s the thing: when you were 22 to 25 years old and you didn’t want to settle, you were trying to get the CEO, the pilot, the investment banker, what you were trying to get flew out the door…”

News of his death spread like wildfire on social media where he was trending on Twitter. Many users spoke their minds and shared mixed reviews of Samuels’ passing. See what they had to say below. 

This is a developing story and we will keep you posted with updates. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones during this time.

COCKTAILS AND CONVERSATIONS: MARC HANDSOME | @beingmarchandsome

#GetSOM via @mzkim2012

Welcome to my Cocktails and Conversations Corner. Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy! The rules here are simple…have an open mind and remember, IT’S FIVE O’CLOCK somewhere.

STRAIGHT NO CHASER

My Beautiful Faces allow me the opportunity to tell you about a conversation I had with Marc Handsome. This artist is like no other. From the first time I was able to talk with him, I love his STRAIGHT NO CHASER attitude. You could tell he was about his business. On three different occasions, I listened to Marc Handsome speak highly of his single IF I LIKE IT. The moment I heard the song I was sold, but to get to know the man behind the single, that took me to a different level of like.

MARC HANDSOME AND THE NEW HIM

Marc Handsome is no stranger to music. After working with countless artist and music moguls, he decided to change a few things in his life. Marc took time to revamp his image and let the world know he was raising the bar. Once he understood the years of trial and error were over, Marc created his own lane. As I listened to him go more in depth, I was in awe of how this young man was taking full advantage of the opportunities before him. When I asked how he felt about the NEW HIM, he said “I love the new brand, I’m more confident and I see what others were seeing in me before.”

During the lane shift, a hot new single was created, IF I LIKE IT. The story behind how all of this took place was amazing. Marc Handsome gave me some interesting insight. Jim Jones was actually one of his favorite artists. Believe it or not, he was confident in knowing Jim Jones would one day do the feature. The belief was so high, he actually left a spot for him to add his verse. As fate would have it, the two crossed paths and the magic was created.

CHEERS MARC HANDSOME

CHEERS to Marc Handsome. True hard work and determination have paid off. The video to IF I LIKE IT is now available for your viewing pleasure. The song was on point but the video transformed it to LEVEL UP status. To see Marc Handsome sitting on top of a street sign is only a glimpse of the heights this artist will reach. The New York streets, vocals from Alexis Renee and the rhymes of Jim Jones were spot on. The team did an outstanding job with bringing this hit to life.

CLOSING TIME

Well my loves it’s closing time for this conversation. As I finish my Sprite and Crown Apple I can’t help but think about how talking to Marc Handsome was such a treat. Even though he is not much of a drinker, he loves a good meal and Mimosas. After watching him work hard at promoting this project, he deserves it. I truly believe the best is yet to come. He is an artist that feeds off of good vibes and energy. Taking care of business and giving back to the youth is a passion. Remembering his struggles has helped him stay focused. To me, these reasons alone will take his career past anything he can imagine.

Cheers my beautiful faces. Enjoy every moment life has to offer, most importantly drink responsibly.
