*Dancer Marcus Bellamy, who once performed in the Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark,” has been charged with the murder of his boyfriend, 27-year-old Bernardo Almonte, and apparently confessed to the crime in a Facebook post, reports the New York Daily News.
“Forgive me,” the 32-year-old wrote Friday after allegedly beating and strangling Almonte, to death. “I did it for love. I did it because I love you. He told me love and hate are the same emotion.”
“I am God,” Bellamy also wrote on his FB page, which is full of Bible verses, as well as pictures of himself shirtless. “I give life and can take it away.”
A law enforcement source said Bellamy strangled his boyfriend as they fought inside the W. 174th St. home in Morris Heights. Police said Almonte, a 27-year-old freelance IT technician, was found in the fifth-floor apartment face down, bleeding from a blow to the head.
Bellamy bit both of Almonte’s shoulders during the brawl, according to authorities. The nature of their argument was not disclosed.
Police said that Bellamy has been arrested four times stretching back to 2007, but none were violent offenses.
In addition to his work as a dance captain in “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark,” Bellamy was also involved with the Broadway musical “Tarzan.” He was also seen in small roles on the TV show “Smash” and the 2007 Julie Taymor film “Across the Universe.”
