An anonymous man in Nashville, Tennessee, has filed and been granted a restraining order against President of Fisk University Dr. Kevin Rome, Sr. The reason: the man in question alleges that Rome drugged and robbed him after meeting on Grindr.
Dr. Rome landed the job as President of Fisk University in 2017. Prior to that, he served as President of Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri from 2013-2017. He and his wife, Stephanie Baker Rome, have twin children together, a boy and a girl.
Rome’s accuser alleges that the University President leads a double life.

According to the complaint, obtained by the website Scoop Nashville, the victim in question met Rome using the alias “Rob” on Grindr in mid-May. The two initially met for sex earlier that month. About a week later, Rome appeared unannounced at the victim’s apartment, where Rome then drugged him with GHB. With the victim incapacitated, Rome then invited other men to the apartment to have sex with him in his drugged state.
The victim also alleges that in June Rome and an accomplice burglarized his apartment, stealing some of the victim’s personal possessions as well as breaking into a closet that belonged to his landlord. The complaint further charges that Rome vandalized the victim’s apartment with homophobic graffiti and damaged the apartment’s plumbing system.
Events took an even more ominous turn on August 6 when the victim received messages from one of Rome’s accomplices warning him not to date “black men” any longer. The victim speculates that jealousy may have motivated the assault.
“I have learned that my boyfriend that I was dating at the time of this incident is “Rob’s” ex, and I was afraid that “Rob” did all of this out of jealousy,” the victim writes. “I am now terrified to leave my house because of the threat on my life. I am very fearful that “Rob” may follow through on the threat to kill me and I want him to stay away from me and not contact me.”
A Nashville magistrate granted the restraining order against Rome based on the victim’s complaint. Rome, for his part, denies the allegations telling Scoop Nashville “I’m just as shocked as you, I have no idea who this person is and I can’t even respond to it because I don’t even know who they are.”
Things that make you go “hmmmm…”
This reminds me when a woman was granted a restraining order against David Letterman because he was sending her telepathic messages through the tv. This complaint is incoherent and ludicrous. What’s the evidence? Seriously?
Well, that sounds like a whole day spent with people coming in and out. GHB is not like acid. You’ll be back fine in a couple hours. Pretty far fetched.

Dr. Rome, I hate to be the one to tell you this but I believe you were set up once this guy put two and two together as to who you are. No, I do not believe for one minute the part about vandalism, stalking and all the other b/s but I do believe you two hooked up and you told him things you should have NEVER revealed to some you whom the only thing you really knew about him was he turned you on sexually. You got what you asked for and it sounds as though you will be soon leaving your post. My guess is he asked for either money, free education or for you to arrange forgiveness of his student loan. He sounds like that type of person.
Hey Sister Better than NOBODY. You have absolutely nothing to support any of your accusations. Just on here to stir up s#it as usual. So sad.
There’s a lot of fan fiction happening and zero facts.
This case is related to a few from Atlanta and I have contacted the authorities in both States to put an end to this crap. These people thrive on fake protective orders.
Talk about a burning Dumpster fire of a tale. Once upon a time, having heard such a story, I would have said that the man filing the restraining order was probably off his rocker. But after years of such stories, including, for example, the saddening (to me) Andrew Gillum mess, I am not going to dismiss Mr. Restraining Order’s account out of hand.
It sounds to me like Dr. Rome hooked up with this guy, and somehow, there’s a third person in the sexual triangle who Mr. Restraining Order and Dr. Rome in particular are really worked up about. Hearing that he might be Dr. Rome’s ex suggests that there may be more than meets the eye here. The GHB drugging, thefts, death threat, and so on, all sound like a fantasy story, but then again, people will do all kinds of things out of obsession, jealousy, revenge, and retribution, including destroying their own lives and livelihoods to get back at other people.
@Kangol2 …..sifting through, your thoughts are similar to mine – I believe some of this happened, but not all of the inflamed drama. We’ll probably find out more soon. ….during the good times, though, I’d bet someone was shooting bullets in the headboard 😉
