More alleged details about Earl Sweatshirt's whereabouts and his happiness, or lack thereof, have been discovered, according to Pitchfork. First, let's recap his situation. Back in April, Complex managed to crack the case and find Earl and revealed that he is at a boarding school in Samoa. Earl's mother sent him there only because she found his music to be disrespectful. Then the New Yorker wrote an article about Earl. When writer Kelefah Sanneh tried to get in touch with Earl and his mother, Sanneh received a response from Earl's mother. However, the quotes that his mother wrote, which she claimed were Earl's, may not have been his after all, according to his publicist.
Now, a supposed classmate of Earl's named Tyler Craven recently claimed that the quotes in the New Yorker
story are false. Contrary to part of the New Yorker
's story, Earl is not in Samoa willingly. Craven wrote on Facebook
that Earl "hates his life right now and his mom for sending him there." Craven also suspects that while the suspicious quotes may have in fact belonged to Earl, he might have said them to appease the staff of the Samoan academy that he attends so they think he is making progress and can graduate sooner. "The program is making him say that stuff for now because the obese bitches running the place don't like his explicit music," Craven said.
Will America ever get Earl back? The full truth will come out in time.
