Temptation Disputation

A musical controversy is sending shockwaves through Motown -- two singers belting out their versions of the Temptations classic "My Girl" ... in an a cappella duel to the death!!!!

It all started when Harvey Levin hit the famous Hitsville Museum in Detroit Tuesday ... and was so moved by the experience of being the legendary Motown recording studio, he broke out in song ... accompanied by some sort of warped Temptations dance move.

The next day, David Ruffin Jr. -- son of Temptations lead singer David Ruffin -- challenged Harvey to a sing-off ... while standing in a back alley, somewhere in L.A.

So, we gotta ask ...

David Ruffin Jr. looks good he is almost fifty years old. He looks a lot younger than his actual age. His Mother says he was born in 1966. Looking good Poppy! His voice is good too for a man of your age.

This like really has to be a joke. Hearing the last name Ruffin I wouldn't even touch it or disrespect the late great Ruffin's honor by messin up a classic like that. This is like comparing Marvin Gaye to Drake.

Funny David finally got some attention. He's been riding his father's coat tail since he died in 1991. David is 47 years old faking like he's 30 something; chasing a singing career. How about you pay some back child support for the kids you didn't allow to be adopted by strangers. David may have a decent voice but he simply will never have the talent his father had. Mostly he's a deadbeat, womanizer who disrespects his own mother and cries like a biotch on the drop of a dime. I obviously have known him for many years and although Harvey can't sing, he beats DER Jr. and his famewhoring hands down when it comes to integrity!

Tell us how you really feel Mandy. Davidis a very emotional man which probably stems from his abusive child hood. David Jr is blessed to have broken the cycle of abuse. He many not be perfect, but he turn out decent. Most abused children grow up to be abusers. Thank God David is not like his Father and his Mother. He has every right to bad mouth his Mother. I'm glad she found God and is a Christian now.
