From G’s to Gents star wanted for assaulting his child turns himself in to police

Another cable reality star is in trouble with the police: First-season From G’s to Gents cast member Markice Anthony Moore, who was known as Kesan on the show, turned himself in to police in Georgia today, since he was wanted for severely beating his own child.

He’s accused of “the Aug. 1 assault of his infant child” which WSBTV reports included “numerous fractures to both wrists and arms, the right leg, the right clavicle and to 8-10 ribs, … bruises to both sides of the head — including to the infant’s face, eyes and ears, in addition to bruises to the back, chest and rear,” according to police, who “determined the infant sustained injuries while with Moore and that the injuries were so great that they could not have been accidental.”

Earlier Wednesday, he told TMZ that he didn’t hurt his child and said, “I love my daughter.”

On the Jamie Foxx-produced MTV show, he threatened others, which led to his eviction, and later sucker punched someone during the reunion.

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
