Group Seen In Stripper Video At Chicago Bulls Game Claim They Were Just “Having A Good Time”
“We are family and friends,” said Jazzy. “We have all been friends for 10 years plus. When we are together we just have a good time.”
Jazzy was joined by her friend Marcus, who served as the party planner, the outlet reports. The group could be seen flaunting stacks of cash, which was used to shower dollar bills on the scantily clad Jazzy.
