Chicago resident Talitha Funchess claims she is being evicted from her rent-subsidized in the South Loop because her son, Kenneth Coffie, appeared in a profanity-laced rap video.
Sun Times: Funchess has lived in the 2100 block of South Michigan building since 2009. Last month she received a “Notice of Termination of Tenancy” from Metroplex Inc., notifying her that the lease was being terminated because her son, Kenneth Coffie, “appeared in a posted video using profanity, degrading language and flashing gang signs on the project grounds, in violation of Paragraphs 8 and 9” of the lease.
According to Paragraph 8 of Funchess’ lease: “Neither Tenant or any of Tenant’s guests shall perform or permit any practice that may damage the reputation of or otherwise be injurious to the Building or neighborhood, or be disturbing to other tenants, or be illegal.”
Paragraph 9 of the lease defines “unlawful” behavior as, including but not limited to the “possession, use or sale of illegal drugs, and disturbances or acts of violence.”
