Trey Songz Has Been Sued Over Alleged Sexual Assault

Trey Songz is being accused of sexual battery inside a Miami nightclub in an explosive lawsuit for 10 million dollars. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Trey Songz (real name: Tremaine Neverson) is being sued by a Georgia woman using Jane Doe.

The suit states, “This is a lawsuit arising from a sexual assault and battery committed by NEVERSON upon JANE DOE while the two were partying at the E11even Miami night club (“E11even”) on January 1, 2018. This suit is based on claims of Assault, Battery, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, and Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress. Plaintiff is seeking more than Ten Million dollars ($10,000,000.00) in damages.”

On January 1, 2018, Doe says Trey Songz invited her to a nightclub after they spent New Year’s Eve together at Diddy’s home.

She was taken to a VIP table where she claims Trey Songz, “sexually assaulted and battered JANE DOE by proceeding to forcefully place his hand under her dress, without her consent, and attempting to insert his fingers into JANE DOE’S vagina without her consent or permission.” The woman claims, “Shortly after the incident with NEVERSON at E11even JANE DOE discovered that she was not NEVERSON’S only victim at E11even, as another female who was in attendance at the nightclub with the group confided to JANE DOE that NEVERSON had also put his hands down her pants and had placed his fingers into her buttocks without her consent earlier that same night.” Doe is suing for assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The lawsuit is seeking in excess of $10 million in damages. The suit adds, “NEVERSON intentionally created an offer of bodily injury to Plaintiff by force under circumstances that created a well-founded fear of imminent peril in PLAINTIFF and NEVERSON had the present ability to effectuate his attempts to produce bodily injury towards PLAINTIFF when he reached under her skirt and attempted to insert his fingers into her vagina.”

Is Drake Confirming A New Joint Project With Future?

Some observers believed Drake’s recent 2-hour interview was the precursor for something new arriving from the Toronto-bred superstar in the near future. Last night, Drizzy further added to that speculation with an Instagram Story post.

Champagne Papi uploaded an image of a screen that featured the words “Life Is Good Future + Drake.” The reference to the word “life” appeared to be a callback to the two rapper’s 2015 collaborative mixtape What a Time to Be Alive. Plus, Drake tagged Future in the photo along with multiple eyes emojis. 

What a Time to Be Alive debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 375,000 first-week units. However, the project saw its sales fall 81% in its second week which was one of the worst week-to-week sales drops in Hip Hop history

Drake’s last solo full-length album was 2018’s Scorpion. He did release The Best in the World Pack EP and the Care Package compilation in 2019. Future’s The Wizrd album landed last year too. The Atlanta rhymer also let loose the Save Me EP in 2019.

Did French Montana Put 50 Cent on Blast for Kissing Pic?

50 Cent’s ongoing beef with French Montana posting a suspicious pic of 50 Cent appearing to kiss what looks like to be rapper Eminem

50 started the rap beef by accusing Montana of buying a 10-year-old Bugatti. “Why this guy keep saying he paid 1.8 for a 08 car he won’t be finished paying for till 2025 that only cost 700.”

Montana provided showing proof that a 2010 Bugatti does not depreciate very much after it’s driven off the dealership lot.

But Montana won the battle when he unearthed an old photo that apparently shows 50 Cent kissing fellow rapper Eminem in a recording studio. There are reports that the image is doctored.

“I hate I had to come to social media to finally put the truth out. But it bothers me so bad that DaBaby out here not claiming OUR child,” Green wrote. “He’s now 5 years old and Dababy had yet to even SEE own his child [sic] in person. No contact no nothing. Just remember it took two of us to make this child.”

The rapper, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, publicly claims a son and a daughter. The promiscuous rapper reportedly has multiple unclaimed children in the wild.

Ricky Gervais Roasts Hollywood at Golden Globes: “F*** Off”

Comedian and host Ricky Gervais had a field day taking shots at Hollywood’s elites in a scathing dig at celebrities that use the Golden Globes and other award shows in general.

THR says that at the top of the annual ceremony at the Beverly Hilton, Gervais ended his monologue by telling the nominees: “So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a political platform to make a political speech. You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything, you know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and fuck off. OK?”

Pelosi moves to limit Trump’s actions in Iran with War Powers Resolution vote

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is formulating a plan with The House of Representatives to put limits to President’s Trumps efforts to move on possible war actions on Iran.

Sources say that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced overnight that she plans on taking measures to potentially curb President Trump’s ability to conduct military operations against Iran.

Pelosi and other Democrats have been critical of Trump’s decision to conduct an airstrike in Iraq that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force, claiming he did not properly notify Congress in advance and warning about the risk of escalation in the region. Trump has also threatened additional action if Iran retaliates for Soleimani’s death.

“This week, the House will introduce and vote on a War Powers Resolution to limit the President’s military actions regarding Iran,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to fellow Democrats, referring to a similar Senate resolution to be introduced by Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va. “It reasserts Congress’s long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken, the Administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days.”

The first War Powers Resolution was passed in 1973 in an effort to prevent presidents from using the military without congressional approval. Since then, questions of presidential compliance have become common, with controversy stemming from President Bill Clinton’s actions in Kosovo and President Barack Obama’s operations in Libya.

Faith Evans Is Not Happy About New Lifetime Doc

Faith Evans isvery upset over a new Lifetime’s doc “Biggie and Faith Evans,” documenting her life with her late rap legend husband, Notorious B.I.G.

Page Six says The singer told Page Six she got duped into participating in the “sensational” doc.

“I feel upset that I’m attached to it. I was told that it would be a positive piece with a little more of my personal background. It wasn’t pitched to me as a story rehashing the sensationalized events that took place,” she said. “I am beyond that and have no need to open old wounds, damage repaired relationships and, above all, soil the legacy of Christopher Wallace a k a the Notorious B.I.G.,” she said.

A trailer for the piece, which airs Jan. 10 as an episode of the network’s “Hopelessly in Love” series, opens up by describing their relationship as “the most controversial love story in hip-hop history, told by those who lived it.” The series promises that “Faith Evans is ready to confront her pain and revisit the most intimate moments of their relationship . . . from their whirlwind engagement, to Biggie’s ongoing affairs with Lil’ Kim and Charli Baltimore, to the East Coast-West Coast rivalry that led to Tupac and Big’s deaths.”

“The Tupac stuff, the different women — how many times are people going to talk about that? It was supposed to be a love story, and it turns into cheating and [Lil’] Kim. We’ve come so far past that. [Lifetime’s] all about drama,” Evans said.

Evans, who is a co-administrator of the late rapper’s estate, claims the doc mostly uses old footage edited to rev up the drama — and she’s not the only one taking issue with it. She said of Big’s mother, Voletta Wallace, “Ms. Wallace is pissed. Everyone was blindsided. She has worked very hard for his legacy to be acknowledged in a more positive light. He’s nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. This [doc] is taking steps backward.”

Evans adds she won’t promote the episode. “It’s about my morals. I would never do business I’m not proud of at this point in my career. I’m not happy,” she said. A rep for Lifetime didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Texas man arrested for killing girlfriend, days after proposing to her on New Year’s Eve

A Texas man is accused of shooting and killing his fiancée just days after proposing to her on New Year’s Eve.

Kendrick Akins, 39, was charged with murder Saturday in the death of 33-year-old Dominic Jefferson outside of a Houston apartment, news station KHOU reported.

Police said Akins gunned down his fiancée early Saturday during a confrontation in the parking lot. He then shot at a person who tried to help Jefferson before fleeing the scene.

Jefferson’s family said they were unaware of any conflict between the couple, who had recently become engaged on New Year’s Eve.

“I just want to know why,” one relative told the outlet. “I trusted him.”

Jefferson, who leaves behind three children, ran a business to help African-American women succeed in the arts.

“Nobody deserves to die like that,” Jefferson’s sister, Charmone Onyeije, told KHOU. “I’m not going to let her die in vain, but I am going to celebrate her life as we know it.”

WRRR Indie Artist Video Pick- Hi Five- Sunshine

WRRR Indie Artist Video Pick- Hi Five – Sunshine]

 

HI-FIVE released their first and self-titled album in 1990. The album went platinum and was produced by legendary producer Teddy Riley; it included such singles as “I Just Can’t Handle It” (R&B #10), “I Can’t Wait Another Minute” (Pop #8, R&B #1), and their biggest hit to date, “I Like the Way (The Kissing Game)“, which went to number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and the U.S. Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The group was aggressively marketed by Jive and was part of the “new jack swing” sound that dominated much of the early to mid-1990s urban contemporary radio format.HI-FIVE enjoyed some mainstream success and were essentially similar in design to R&B counterparts such as H-TownShaiPublic Announcement, and perhaps most notably, Boyz II Men. The group’s single, “Too Young” was featured on John Singleton’s Boyz n the Hood, the soundtrack from the movie.
HI-FIVE’s second LP, Keep It Goin’ On, came out in 1992. Though not as successful as their debut effort, several tracks from this album, including “She’s Playing Hard To Get” (Pop #5, R&B #2) and the R. Kelly-penned “Quality Time” (Pop #38, R&B #3) got major airplay in East Coast (US) urban markets. In 1993, HI-FIVE emerged with a third album, Faithful, which featured the songs “Unconditional Love” (Pop #92, R&B #21) and “Never Should’ve Let You Go” (Pop #30, R&B #10). “Unconditional Love” was also featured in the multi-platinum Menace II Society soundtrack, and received extensive airplay on urban contemporary stations throughout the summer of 1993 as the movie increased in popularity. “Never Should’ve Let You Go” was featured in the ‘Sister Act 2’ soundtrack. In 2013, the group’s single “Favorite Girl” topped the Top 50 Urban AC charts at #37.

WRRR Indie Artist Video Pick- Christopher Williams – ‘Too Late’

WRRR Indie Artist Video Pick- Christopher Williams ‘Too Late’]

 

Contemporary soul singer Christopher Williams was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. The nephew of jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald decided to become a singer after sitting with his aunt Ella, Frank Sinatra and Count Basie after a show. With talent in his genes and the desire to be a great recording artist, Christopher Williams emerged during the late 1980s, as a recording artist for Geffen Records. He released his debut album, entitled “Adventures in Paradise”, in 1989. The singles “Talk To Myself” and “Promises, Promises” reached the R&B Top 10 charts, and Christopher’s soulful, powerful voice made him stand out among his peers. In 1991, he landed his first acting role portraying Kareem Akbar, appearing alongsideWesley Snipes and Ice-T in the pop culture movie hit, New Jack City. His single from the soundtrack of the same name, “Dreamin’” turned gold and became a #1 single on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks charts. His 1992 Uptown Records album “Changes” featured the hits “All I See”, “Every Little Thing” and “Come Go with Me.” The album peaked at sixty-three on the U.S. Billboard 200 and reached the twelfth spot on the R&B Albums chart. In 1995 the album “Changes” was followed up by “Not a Perfect Man” on Giant Records. This album brought a new direction for Williams; his first album as sole Executive Producer uses elements of reggae, R&B, hip-hop and country. In 2001, after a six year hiatus the album “Real Men Do” was released on the indie label Renegade, receiving rave reviews from Ebony Magazine and many other notable publications.
 
As Christopher’s career progressed, he continued to make strides in music and acting. After appearing in the movie New Jack City, he became increasingly interested in acting and began to focus on the performing arts in television, film and theater.  In the 1990’s he had a cameo appearance in the popular police drama,New York Undercover as “the singer,” performing “Stranger In My Life,” in the episode entitled “The Shooter.” He had another cameo in Gunmen, starring Christopher Lambert and Mario Van Peebles, also singing the “Stranger In My Life“.
 
He’s also starred in over thirty successful off-Broadway Gospel theatre productions during the 2000s, including “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, “A House is Not a Home”, “Men Cry in the Dark”, and “The Man He Used to Be”.  Williams played a main character in the stage play “The Clean Up Woman”, written by JD Lawrence, and played alongside actress Telma Hopkins and Jackee. Williams also appeared in plays “Guilty Until Proven Innocent”, starring K-Ci & JoJo, and “The Man of Her Dreams”, starring Shirley Murdock andDave Hollister of Blackstreet fame.
 
Christopher Williams continues to stay relevant and popular among his millions of fans and followers. Working harder than ever in between plays and touring, he’s currently recording his much anticipated, fifth solo album and in the studio with superstar producers Ced Solo, Mike City, Da Internz, Carvin & Ivan,Eddie F and 9th Wonder.

Kelly Rowland: ‘Destiny’s Child Will Not Reunite’

44776_Destiny_sChild_003

For Destiny’s Child fans holding their breath for a reunion tour, please let the air out, cause’ it ain’t gonna happen!

Huffingtonpost reports that Kelly Rowland, in an interview with Us Weekly,  said that she and fellow Independent Women Beyoncé Knowles and Michelle Williams haven’t even discussed getting back together.

“It hasn’t been something that we’ve talked about at all,” Rowland said. “We’ve just been enjoying each other, whether it’s been about our music, whether it’s been about motherhood or our personal lives. That’s what it’s really been about. That’s been the most beautiful part.”

The 34-year-old new mom added, “We love each other.”

Williams told E! News in 2013 that it would take “something epic and worthwhile and amazing” to get the Destiny’s Child together.

“I’m never going to say never, but it’ll be a long time,” said Williams.

Williams, Rowland and Knowles last performed together in March at the 30th Annual Stellar Awards in Las Vegas, and everyone remembers their last reunion during Beyoncé’s halftime performance for the 2013 Super Bowl.

But even though we see less and less of Destiny’s Child together, all of the group members are staying busy. Beyoncé is raising daughter Blue Ivy and recently performed at Jay Z’s TIDAL X concert in Brooklyn. Rowland gave birth to son Titan Witherspoon in November 2014 and is busy with a role on Season 2 of “Empire.” And Michelle Williams landed a guest appearance on Bounce TV’s “Family Time” and has appeared on Broadway over the years.

Boy George Claims He Slept with Prince

ac_boygeorge_prince_comp

80’s singer Boy George dropped a bombshell during a taping of NBC’s The Voice when he revealed that he had ‘relations’ with the Royal Rocker in the past.

2CC954F000000578-0-image-m-120_1446167526448

The DailyMail reports that the Voice’s newcomer made the shocking claim during the show’s live audition stage in front of a studio audience

A source told The Sun that it ‘sent the audience absolutely wild and forced producers to stop filming.’

Sitting on the judging panel alongside Will.i.am, Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson and singer Paloma Faith, the foursome boasted about who they’d collaborated with.

London-born singer/songwriter Boy George enthused: ‘I have duetted with some of the greatest soul singers in history including Luther Vandross and Smokey Robinson.’

Paloma hit back: ‘Well OK, if we’re throwing big soul names out there I’ve performed with Prince.’

To which George reportedly replied: ‘Forget that, darling, I’ve slept with Prince.’

A production source told the newspaper that the crew couldn’t believe what they had heard and the crowd went ‘absolutely wild.’

They added that the other judges, especially Will.i.am, thought it was brilliant and kept on high-fiving him.

The source said: ‘Production staff had to come up on stage and speak to them.

‘After that, Boy George started backtracking saying he hadn’t really slept with Prince and that in reality, he just had his poster on his wall.

The eccentric hit-maker was confirmed as the replacement coach for Tom Jones – who’d been on the show since its first series in 2012 – in August.

Speaking about his new role when the 2016 line-up was announced, Boy George said: ‘I’m thrilled and excited to be a coach on The Voice UK.

‘I’m a huge fan of the show and have watched and engaged with it from series one.’

But it wasn’t all plain-sailing as Tom, 72, hit out at BBC bosses at the time for the way in which he was ditched ‘without consultation’.

The fifth series of The Voice starts in Jan 2016 BBC One.

Boombox.com reports that Scarface’s honorary tribute at the 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards ended on a sour note after the rap legend was reportedly arrested backstage after receiving his prestigious I Am Hip-Hop Award on Friday (Oct. 9).

According to photographer/blogger Freddy-O, the Houston rhymer was leaving the stage when reportedly 10 sheriffs approached ‘Face and subsequently arrested him. Insiders informed the blogger that Scarface was taken into custody for an outstanding warrant in the State of Texas for unpaid child support. Freddy-O writes:

Scarface was so concerned about accepting his award and not disappointing his fans he risked being arrested. Snoop was back stage when Scarface was arrested and was upset that; the great moment ended on a sour note. The incident resulted in the show being delayed.”

As we previously reported, Scarface received the coveted I Am Hip-Hop Award for his venerable career in rap music. Fellow rapper Ludacris presented the honor to the former Geto Boys rhymer who delivered a very short acceptance speech. “I’m not (expletive) without y’all,” he said while raising the award in the air before walking off.

Reps for Scarface had no comment on the matter. According to AllHipHop.com, the veteran rapper was in great spirits before he accepted his award and there was no indication that something was awry.

Hopefully, Scarface has rectify his situation and is out of police custody. This is not how a rap legend should go out at a hip-hop awards show.

In the meantime, the 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards will air on BET on Oct. 13 at 8PM ET. To check out photos from the event, head over to BET.com.

Selena Gomez Reveals to Public She has Lupus

selena-gomez

CNN reports that  pop singer Selena Gomez has revealed in Billboard that her diagnosis with the autoimmune disease lupus was behind a recent hiatus from the spotlight.

“I was diagnosed with lupus, and I’ve been through chemotherapy. That’s what my break was really about. I could’ve had a stroke,” Gomez told the magazine in a cover story coming out Thursday.

Rumors swirled around the 23-year-old singer when she canceled part of her tour back in 2013.

About 1.5 million Americans have lupus, and it strikes mostly women between the ages of 15 and 44.

What is lupus?

Lupus is a chronic disease that can affect any part of the body — typically the skin, joints, blood and kidneys, according to the Lupus Foundation of America. The immune systems of lupus sufferers essentially go haywire, and instead of fighting off viruses and bacteria with antibodies, their bodies create autoantibodies that attack healthy tissue. Symptoms can include fatigue, fever, weight loss, painful joints, rash, hearing loss, anemia, abnormal bloating and mouth ulcers.

“I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again,” Gomez told Billboard.

Gomez’s concern about having a stroke is legitimate.

“There can be an increased risk of … strokes, blood clotting in the legs or even heart attacks,” said Dr. Joan Merrill, medical director of the Lupus Foundation of America.

Empire Season 2 Ep. 3 ‘Fires in Heaven’ Review: The Battle Royale

EMPIRE: Cast Pictured L-R: (Bottom Row) Bryshere Gray as Hakeem Lyon, Jussie Smollett as Jamal Lyon, Trai Byers as Andre Lyon (Middle Row) Grace Gealey as Anika, Kaitlin Doubleday as Rhonda Lyon (Back Row) Gabourey Sidibe as Becky, Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon, Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon and Ta'Rhonda Jones as Porsha on EMPIRE Season 2 premiering Wednesday, September 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. ©2015 Fox Broadcasting Co. Cr: James Dimmock/FOX.

As viewers watch as Luscious makes his grand entrance into the Lyon’s family dining room, one can only feel some of the surly glee in his eyes as he courts ideas of exacting punishment on those who betrayed him. The ensuing war between Luscious’ Empire and Cookie’s Dynasty is upon us know, and God help those in their way.

 

151008_PLUS_Empire-S2-Ep3.jpg.CROP.promo-xlarge2

After being freed from prison, Luscious doesn’t miss a beat, starting with a huge rally in his name and acquiring his position as head of Empire as if he hadn’t even left. ‘I’m giving ya’ll one last chance because ya’ll are my family. I know ya’ll can’t eat without me because all ya’ll got is pride. And it’s chewy and it’s hard to swallow. Let it go.’ bellows Luscious to those present at the table. Cookie snaps back coyly saying, ‘I don’t know what happened to you when you were locked up, but you got me twisted, O.G. I’m always gonna’ eat. Just not with you.’, as she slowly walks away, pulling the tablecloth with her, wasting the family meal on the floor. Wow.

 

imrs.php

I see that the writers are sticking to what fans like the most, and that’s the fireworks in the dynamics between the inner circles of the Lyons. Andre finally confesses to his mother concerning Rhonda’s pregnancy, and Cookie couldn’t have been happier. Yet Andre’s desperation to get back into the Empire fold is what was most disheartening for Cookie to watch. Luscious’ fears regarding Andre taking reins of the company further came to the surface when it came to a possible hereditary passing down of Andre’s Bi-polar issues to his grandchild. ‘Aren’t you worried?’ Luscious asks. ‘About what?’ Andre responds. ‘The child’s mental health’ the beleaguered CEO says to his son, knowing his own mother’s battles with being Bi-polar (as played by Kelly Rowland last week see here) via the flashbacks we saw. Bi-polar doesn’t run in our family, Dad. There’s nothing to worry about’ says Andre, even though one might suspect that even Andre himself doesn’t believe what he’s saying.

Cookie pulls no punches in getting Hakeem’s music promoted, and what better way than having your son on Sway in The Morning’s radio show? Hakeem however, against his mother’s wishes, lets Sway know about his talented, but inexperienced, all girl group Mirage-á-Trois. What better way to fix this snafu than to have Hakeem and crew crash Luscious’ release event for Jamal?

 

hakeem-lyonx

Even though Jamal and special guest Hip Hop start Pitbull put a fairly good performance, I would have to say Jamal’s song ‘Run It’ with super producer Timbaland, hands down is probably going to be the hit of this season. Of course, the ultimate slap in the face came from daddy Lyons, in the form of stealing Jamal’s prized girl group from beneath him. Being dirty isn’t easy folks.

Overall, this was a well-balanced episode, without too many over-arching storylines to contend with.

Fat Joe Honors his Special Needs Son

Rapper Fat Joe, whose real name is Joseph Cartagena, recently wrote a loving tribute to his special needs son Joey, on social media.

https://www.facebook.com/fatjoe/photos/a.10150786593475255.466470.8025290254/10153516234710255/?type=3

 

The 45-year-old New York native has three children. Back in 2010, he opened up about the journey of becoming a father for the first time at a young age during an interview with UrbLife.

“My oldest son is Joey, he’s 18,” he said. “When I had him I was very young. I love my son dearly, but I didn’t feel like I was ready to have kids at the time. From time to time I told my mom and dad they should have educated me on the responsibilities of having a kid. He was a special needs child, I raised him with my parents. His mom couldn’t handle him, and instead of him going to a center we raised him all of his life. I had to learn the responsibilities of being a parent the hard way.”

Sorry 50 Cent. His tirade on what may caused FOX’s Empire ratings last week (see here) to drop may have been a little premature.

Last week initial viewing totals for Fox hit series Empire showed a 19% decline in ratings

That was before the DVR totals were tallied up. According to initial reports 13.7 million viewers tuned in to watch Empire live last week but delayed viewing totals boosted the number to 18 million!

Matt Barnes Gets into a Brawl with Derek Fisher Over Estranged Wife

matt-barnes-derek-fisher

Knicks coach Derek Fisher was attacked in Los Angeles by NBA bad boy Matt Barnes, who drove 95 miles to “beat the s—t out of him” when he found out Fisher was romancing his estranged wife, sources told The Post on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-7 Barnes, who now plays for the Memphis Grizzlies, made a fast break from his team’s California training camp Saturday when he was tipped off that Fisher was making time with sultry “Basketball Wives LA” star Gloria Govan in the home Barnes once shared with her.

The NBA is investigating the brawl.

Sources told The Post that Barnes became incensed when his 6-year-old twin sons, Carter and Isaiah, called to tell him that Fisher was at the house.

“Barnes went crazy. He got in his car and went to the house and went after Fisher,” one source said. “Matt then drove down there to beat the s–t out of him.”

Fisher and Barnes were teammates on the LA Lakers for two seasons.

Barnes — a forward who’s known as an “enforcer” for his aggressive style of play — found Fisher, Govan and about 10 other people around a bonfire in the back yard, sources said.

A fight erupted at 11:45 p.m. between the 235-pound Barnes and the 6-1, 200-pound Fisher. Cops were called, but Fisher left before they arrived, the sources said.

Following the dustup, Barnes, 35, texted a pal that he had not only assaulted Fisher, 41, but also took revenge on Govan, one source said.

“I kicked his ass from the back yard to the front room, and spit in her face,” the text read, according to the source.

A source close to Fisher confirmed the fight, but insisted it wasn’t as one-sided as Barnes claimed.

“Matt came after Derek, but he only had a few scratches,” the source said. “Derek’s not going to press charges; he’s going to let it go.”

Fisher, who declined to comment in detail about the dustup, looked no worse for wear before the Knicks’ preseason game against the Brazilian Paschoalotto/Bauru team at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.

Govan was planning to file a restraining order against Barnes, sources said.

Reps for Barnes and Govan didn’t return requests for comment. The Grizzlies issued a statement saying they were “aware [of] and currently gathering information regarding” The Post’s online exclusive on the incident.

Asked how he felt in the wake of the fight, Fisher said, “My state of mind — like I talked to the guys a few minutes ago — is personal, and private matters are personal and private.

“I’ve been through a lot in life. Sometimes, we go through things we can’t or can control. I’m here. I’m focused. It’s not something that’s going to take me away from what we’re trying to do.”

Fisher refused to say why he missed the team’s practice on Monday, which the Knicks had tweeted was “due to personal reasons.”

LA court records show Barnes filed for divorce in January. In August, he claimed that he had been dating pop star Rihanna and that they’d gone “past the crush stage,” but she denied it on Instagram.

Sources said Fisher began dating Govan, 29, “a few months” ago, and on Sept. 27, a Twitter user with the handle @alexiss_henry tweeted: “I spy Derek Fisher with Matt Barnes’ kids.”

In March, Fisher filed for divorce from his wife, Candace, a month after their 10th anniversary.

Candace, who has twin sons with the coach, responded with court papers saying she was “blindsided” by the move and discovered he had secretly moved his stuff out of their New York apartment when she went to check on it, according to TMZ.

Saturday’s altercation wasn’t the first time Barnes has flashed rage.

In 2012, he was arrested for allegedly threatening a California cop who recognized him for an outstanding warrant for driving with a suspended license.

He was also arrested in 2010 on suspicion of felony domestic violence against Govan, who was his fiancée at the time.

She denied he had abused her during a fight at their home, and the charge was later dropped.

Earlier this year, the NBA fined Barnes $50,000 for directing “inappropriate language at a fan” who was seated courtside during a May 1 playoff game — and who turned out to be the mom of Houston guard James Harden.

The NBA didn’t detail the trash talk, but reports on Twitter claimed that Barnes, who later apologized, said, “Suck my d- -k, bitch.”

Barnes was also fined $25,000 in January for kicking water and cursing at a fan in Washington.

Later that month, he was fined another $25,000 for swearing at Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver, who Barnes later said “cussed at me” first.

Barnes met Govan when she was 12, and they started dating in 2006, when he played for the Golden State Warriors. The couple married in 2012.

Nick Gordon: Bobbi Krsitina’s Family Is Painting Me as Scumbag Murderer

et_dr_phil_gordon_031015300

TMZ reports that Nick Gordon says Bobbi Kristina’s family is painting him as a murderer (see here) and scumbag to the point he will never get a fair trial if he’s criminally prosecuted.

Gordon says in legal docs the Brown family has painted him a “murderer, a habitual batterer of women, a seducer of young white females, a thief and/or con man fueled by monetary gain, and a chemist capable of making a toxic cocktail.”

Gordon is asking the judge to stop the $40 million wrongful death lawsuit the Browns filed against him until the criminal process runs its course.

The big thing for Gordon … he says he has a right to remain silent, and the civil case would force him to answer questions that could be used against him if criminal charges are filed.

Rihanna Says No to Rumors of Secret Relationship with Chris Brown

dish-012315-rihanna

Superstar singer Rihanna recently cleared the air on any rumors surrounding her and Chris Brown having on having an ongoing secret relationship.

Rihanna tells Vanity Fair

“…I was very protective of him. I felt that people didn’t understand him. Even after … But you know, you realize after a while that in that situation you’re the enemy. You want the best for them, but if you remind them of their failures, or if you remind them of bad moments in their life, or even if you say I’m willing to put up with something, they think less of you—because they know you don’t deserve what they’re going to give. And if you put up with it, maybe you are agreeing that you [deserve] this, and that’s when I finally had to say, ‘Uh-oh, I was stupid thinking I was built for this.’ Sometimes you just have to walk away.” Now, she says, “I don’t hate him. I will care about him until the day I die. We’re not friends, but it’s not like we’re enemies. We don’t have much of a relationship now.”

Fredro Starr Shares His Thoughts on His Battle with Keith Murray

keith-murray-fredro-starr-630x409

Onyx’s Fredro Starr, who was accompanied by Loaded Lux , recently commented about his long awaited battle against Def Squad representative, Keith Murray.

When asked how he felt the battle went down, the “Slam” emcee described to DJ Vlad his match up as hip hop history and also expressed his opinion that the bout was a good look for the battle rap as a whole.
Fans of the culture as well as emcees in this era usually prefer battles that are acapella rather than having competitors spit to an instrumental. When asked if he felt there was difference battling to a beat, the Onyx member stated that although he prefers to battle without a beat, an emcee must be versatile enough to perform in whatever format that is provided.

Many who were in attendance for the showdown shared the same belief that Fredro Starr was the victor of the battle. After the legendary Loaded Lux told Vlad he felt the same way, Starr humbly stated that it is up for the fans to decide.

Missy Elliot Sued for Not Promoting Shows

index

Rapper Missy Elliott has reportedly been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly failing to promote two concerts in Brazil, leading to poor ticket sales.

The Work It star was booked to play gigs in Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre in November 2012 and reportedly agreed to promote the shows in a scheduled appearance on Brazilian TV network Rede Globo.

However, in legal documents obtained by TMZ, concert booker Jean Faustin claims Elliott failed to show up for the TV promos, which he alleges subsequently led to poor ticket sales. As a result, both concerts were cancelled.

In his lawsuit, Faustin says he paid Elliott a £46,875 deposit for the concerts, and he is seeking reimbursement for the advance, plus interest.

Elliott, 44, has had a busy 2015, playing the Essence Music Festival in Louisiana, US, Bestival on the Isle of Wight, UK, and the Pemberton Music Festival in British Colombia, Canada.

She also performed alongside Katy Perry at this year’s (15) Super Bowl.

“I thank Katy ’cause she could have picked any artist. It was big for her. Most artists would be like, ‘Let me get somebody on the top of the charts just to make my joint just go even higher,’” Missy said at the time. “We did a record together, and I thought I was going to come out on the record we did. She said, ‘I want you to do your records.’ I’m like, ‘Wow.’”

50 Cent Blames Empire’s Rating Drop on ‘Too Much Gay Stuff’

empire_50_cent_gay_stuff

50 Cent is back to his old antics again with starting beef, only this time it’s with Lee Daniel’s hit show Empire!

Huffingtonpost reports that viewership for the second episode of this season of “Empire” was down 2.3 million people — 18 percent — and 50 Cent thinks he knows why.

The rapper took to Instagram to blame it on all the “gay stuff.” Ugh.

More precisely, 50 Cent posted a screengrab of a post from Industry on Blast’s Instagram account that was captioned, “There are 3 million less [sic] viewers who tuned into last night’s Empire episode!!!! did you watch it? We could not take the extra gay stuff or celebrity stuff last night!!!!”

For the few non-“Empire”-watchers out there: One of the lead characters on the show, Jamal Lyons, played by Jussie Smollett, is an openly gay musician who was tapped to be the CEO of Empire Entertainment at the end of Season 1. The Season 2 premiere also featured a plotline about an effort to use female sex appeal to convince a lesbian investor, played by Marisa Tomei, to invest in a new music company.

Despite the drop, the ratings for the second episode of “Empire” in the coveted 18-49 demo were still good enough to handily beat every other scripted show on TV last week.

Viewership for the Fox show is also about four times higher than that of the top-rated episode of “Power,” the drama that 50 Cent produces for Starz. It wouldn’t be a stretch to connect 50 Cent’s insensitive social media commentary on “Empire” to the rivalry between the two shows, both of which feature mostly black casts.

50 Cent, for his part, recanted his Instagram comments — sort of. He took down the original post and put up, in its stead, the following photo:

 

The photo was captioned, “It must be a slow news week, they’re gonna say 50 said Empire lost 3 million views because of to much gay shit. He only said cookie call me, but the fucking kid is fucking up the show. Now every one is waiting for POWER, I told him to lay low.”

50 Cent’s defense seems to be that he wasn’t the one who wrote the original caption talking about the “gay stuff” — he just reposted it! But his sincerity is undercut by his reference to Jamal as “the fucking kid […] fucking up the show.” Not to mention the fact that his Instagram profile lacks the crucial social media disclaimer “Reposts ≠ endorsements”!

Tupac’s Prison Letter Denouncing ‘Thug Life’ Auctioning for $225,000

2ee016f2d877f92f300a59c728e3758e

The prison letters of the late rapper Tupac Shakur are being sold 20 years after his death, but only for a buyer with Boss-Playa money.

The seller, a purveyor of precious historical paperwork called Moments in Time, is selling the five-page prison letter for $225,000. It’s a fixed price, first-come-first-serve offer, according to Gary Zimet, owner of Moments in Time.

Shakur penned the papers while serving time at Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, N.Y., after his 1995 conviction for sexually abusing a fan.

 

151005090931-tupac-letters-780x439

 

Shakur wrote a one-page letter to Nina Bhadreshwar, a staffer at Death Row Records, and included in the envelope was a separate four-page explanation of his philosophy entitled “Is THUG Life Dead?”

“It’s long but it’s true,” he wrote to Bhardreshwar. “Use it as U see fit. I am not granting this information 2 any other publication, not even Time & Rollingstone. So please represent it.”

The rapper, who had already survived a five-bullet shooting, launched into a rambling manifesto aimed at young black men, as he contemplated his newly sober existence behind bars.

“The thug in me started buggin from withdrawal from my previous medicated state and under the pressure I nearly lost my mind,” he wrote.

He outlined the three stages of man, starting with “DustKicker” and evolving into “Thug.” He said that if man survives the thug phase, he can attain the highest state of all: “BossPlaya.”

“A Boss Playa is a thinker, a leader, a builder, a moneymaker, a souljah, a teacher and most of all a Man!” he wrote.

He urged “all the Souljahs of this Nation 2 examine and evaluate your lives. Are u ready 4 the next level! I Did not begin thug life I just personified it.”

He also complained about the correctional officers at Clinton Correctional getting rough with prisoners and insulting them with racial slurs.

The staffers of Clinton Correctional are currently under investigation after two convicted murderers escaped this summer, launching a massive police manhunt as they survived in the woods for weeks. Both of the fugitives were eventually shot: one killed, one recaptured. A prison employee pleaded guilty to helping them escape and was sentenced to up to seven years.

While Shakur was behind bars at Clinton Correctional, he released his album “Me Against the World.” He is believed to be the first person to release a number one album while serving time.

Not long after he was released from prison in 1996, he was shot to death in Las Vegas. The drive-by murder has never been solved, leading to conspiracy theories that he might still be alive. These theories are fueled by the massive volume of work he’s produced since his death, including his postmortem performance as an on-stage hologram — and his prison letters.

“Hopefully this will do some of u some good,” wrote Shakur from Clinton. “If it does then I don’t sit in jail in vain. I’ll see y’all in about 18 months.”

But website Oh No They Didn’t proved otherwise regarding her tally.

After going over the ratings stats on Brazilian website Contém POP posters on ONTD revealed

“Looking into the detailed report of the event ratings, we can see the number is completely false.”

“With 2.1 points higher than the second place Adam Lambert and Queen, the report says. 1 rating point is equivalent to 67.000 people watching. This means Rihanna only had 502,000 people watching.”

Empire Season 2, Episode 2: “Without a Country” Review: Taking Cues from The Past

Empire Season 2, Episode 2: “Without a Country” Review: Taking Cues from The Past

The second season episode of FOX’s Empire “Without a Country”, fared better this week (see here for last week’s review) in terms of stronger storytelling, ending with the long waited release of the crafty ‘King’ of the record label Luscious Lyons (Terrence Howard). Continuing from last episode, we see the prosecutor Roxanne Ford (Tyra Ferrell) still fumbling her way through her case against Luscious. When conventional means wear thin, Roxanne tries to strong-arm Luscious by withholding his medication to make him break, courtesy of Hip Hop guest star Ludacris (playing an unconvincing, mean-spirited prison guard named Officer McKnight).

The constant barrage of harassment by Roxanne and Officer McKnight only serves to embolden Luscious’ energy to record more music while being incarcerated . Terrance Howard’s foray into the indignant prison track ‘Snitch Bitch’, provided Luscious the freedom he so craved, even while he’s behind bars. He’s just sending a friendly reminder to those in his family who betrayed him, that the King has still got it. Sometimes the seams within the fabric of Howard’s performance frayed a little, giving way to not so much as performance confidence as it did to clumsy desperation. In other words Terrance, less rapping at this point and age of your life, and more acting like a seasoned leader of the pack, as demonstrated with his prison co-horts and business associates in the past.

Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) of course is still like a tidal wave, moving with gale force throughout this episode, galvanizing the support of sons Andre and Hakeem to build a new label. Jamal (Jussie Smollett) is still resisting his family’s prodding to release Hakeem’s (Bryshere Y. Gray) record, even after being scolded by his mother into doing so. The rise to CEO of Empire records has not dampened Jamal’s creativity however, and with help from producers Timbaland and Ne-Yo, that fact is exemplified in this season’s musical scores.

Hakeem is determined to bolster his stunted career by trying to create his own ‘Destiny’s Child’ type of girl group, holding a sometimes awkward casting call with only a few promising delights. Jamal’s pleading to Hakeem on their father’s behest to come back to the label backfires, after Hakeem leaks his own embargoed debut online. The constant battle for the top spot gets a little disjointed as the story moves along. Cookie’s alliances are even more blurred this season as opposed to last, showing more favoritism to Hakeem, who despised his mother’s handling last year. As to give Luscious the proverbial poke in the eye, the mother and son duo dubiously name their new label ‘Lyons Dynasty”, much to the chagrin of Jamal, who tells Hakeem the name sounds ‘corny’.

imrs.php

Some glaring character issues still comes to the surface, especially Anika’s (Grace Gealey) role, which has been reduced from the titular sex- kitten antagonist, to a mere errand/call girl this season. The most interesting plot development this episode is the exceptional scene between Luscious and Andre (Trai Byers) in the visiting room at prison. In the poignant part of their encounter, Andre espouses to his father, ‘Of all of your children, after throwing Jamal in a trash can as a child, and Jamal sleeping with your fiancé, you have despised me, the one who never betrayed you!’ Viewers were then swept back into a flashback scene with Luscious as a child being held by his mother (played by Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland) being serenated by a by a mellow lullaby. As the scene progresses along with her melody, you then witness Luscious’ mother eyes drift off into almost a catatonic state, revealing to the audience a glimpse into Luscious fears regarding Andre’s Bi-polar condition.

The second episode showed more growth than the sporadic first of this season by showing us glimpses into the Lyon’s past, which may provide promise in future shows to come. What the show is desperately lacking at this point is a linear focus on where the characters should stand from one episode to the next. Where is Mimi? (Marisa Tomei) For such a major role within the company, was she just a one shot guest? How can an artist quit one record label to go to another without being sued for breaking contractual conditions and not having their career hampered for months? As affluent and well-connected as the Lyons family are, why doesn’t Luscious have legal counsel on standby, as opposed to resorting to using the spastic, ill-dressed lawyer Thirsty Rawlings (Andre Royo of “The Wire”) that appears from out of thin air in the prison’s visiting room? With such a stellar cast in FOX’s hands, it would be a waste to have Empire become a Hip Hop second cousin to the network’s other ratings giant ‘Glee’.

Is Loni Love Correct about Black Men Not Being Faithful Due to Lack of Power and Slavery?

Comedian Loni Love stated this past week on her talk show The Real, that black men in America cannot stay faithful in relationships due to their, in her words, being obsessed with money and power. The comment came up on the show regarding Joe Budden’s opinion regarding comedian Kevin Hart’s infidelity issues, and Loni interjected stating that “I don’t speak for the Black community by I do think that a lot of Black men, they really don’t know how to have true, faithful relationships,” she said. “They think because they have money, they have power, that they can treat women any kind of way

After another co-host mentioned that all men of other races cheat too, Loni then went on to say “No, it’s not across the board because what is happening is that we are still dealing with the point of slavery,” Loni continued. “And we are descendants of slavery and because our families were broken up, we still do not have an idea of how to have togetherness because our families were broken up.”

When I analyzed in context what Loni expounded, I realized that this was a backhanded response to a clear issue with men in general. To blame black men’s inability to maintain a healthy relationship with his mate due to these reasons is extraordinarily inaccurate. Singling out one race for cheating due to a lust for money and power makes the real culprits of infidelity avoid culpability. Loni apparently is looking through life and love through a pair of race baiting glasses. How can one seriously defend such a ridiculous claim? One would suspect that Loni has had bad experiences in the past with black men and is seeking to justify her claims because of it.

Yes, black men have suffered the unfathomable depths of slavery, and was separated from the family structure that they were expected to uphold without condition. Yes, black men have been on the short stick when it comes to economic power and has struggled to make ends meet for hundreds of years. But to lay the blame of infidelity at the feet of black men exclusively is not only irresponsible but dangerous. Men have always sought the objective of domineering and conquering. Collectively all men, from Mansa Musa to Alexander the Great and beyond, have sought riches and glory, but one his greatest prizes was the attention and affection of women. Many men have callously objectified and cheated on women for thousands of years. Some could easily say that to a certain degree, women equally share in this equation. Why do certain women attach themselves to men who have track records of unfaithfulness?

Many black males are taken off the chessboard due to not only economic hardships, but also to incarceration, death and living a ‘down-low’ lifestyle. When in comparison to other races, black men carry and exceptional weight to carry. But this should not reflect the totality of black males, only a small fraction of the population. The entertainment business through different genres of music through Hip Hop and Rock & Roll especially, have fostered the get rich and die trying lifestyle for men to look up too and emulate. Black men have been targeted and promoted to live life in excess, even without having the actual financial security as their counterparts. This drives certain men to seek the dominance of multiple women to compensate for the obvious lack of power within their own lives and communities. However, to communicate to the masses that only black males suffer from these deficits is highly deceptive. Black people only make up roughly 14% of the American population, so the numbers are skewed unportioned. What the real question should have been asked was why men cheat in general. I suspect that because Loni is in an interracial relationship, her rationale for her generalization is tainted.

Should Whitney Houston and The Notorious B.I.G. be Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?

I recently saw a comment online about why Whitney Houston and The Notorious B.I.G was not qualified to be inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.  I wondered for a moment if I should be angered by this, and should I debate the origins of true Rock & Roll’s roots with the author of the post. I wanted to remind them of how the term Rock & Roll was created by a disc jockey by the name of Alan Freed, used to describe black R&B records that were of high energy. From the black roots of blues emanating from the local juke joints, to legendary stories of Robert Johnson selling his soul for a wicked lick on his well-worn guitar, rock’s origins could not be denied.

Rock & Roll is the love child of blues and the hard-rocking melodies of many different recordings of the early 1940’s and 50’s. The early rock and roll sound was created by Sister Rosetta Tharpe, a black woman who was born well over 100 years ago. Little Richard to Chuck Berry, from Bo Diddly to Jimi Hendrix, many of their white counterparts in this music genre owe a substantial amount of credit to these individuals. The Rolling Stones’ love for black music propelled them to super stardom, not to mention the millions of dollars Elvis Presley cultivated from early soul music. I though very carefully for a measured response that wouldn’t make me sound to preachy, after all I wanted to make my case solid in my statement.

Then I considered the segregation of black artist in the early 70’s and 80’s at the television award shows. Whenever an artist such as Michael Jackson and Prince would win it would be for best black single or best black artist of the year categories. Just look at some old footage from early 80’s clips on YouTube and you will see what I mean. As a child at that time, I was just so happy to see one of my favorite artist win, I didn’t take in the totality of the apparent segregation of music had been at that time.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has inducted every popular rock band from Led Zeppelin, Motley Crue, Aerosmith and countless others that they deem worthy of being beacons of light for the almighty throne of this genre. I mean, where would a place be for artists such as Hip Hop and R&B legends Run DMC and Parliament Funkadelic? Would we the have to take the time to create separate Halls of Fames for R&B and Hip Hop, knowing full well that those halls would not be so revered as such an institution as The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Would these events get the same amount of airtime and promotion to garner the same amount of recognition deserving of a legendary artist?

Whitney Houston and Biggie Smalls may be not the standard examples of your typical hard rocking artist with waving guitars and crashing drums. But consider Rock & Roll’s origins and take a step back and think about what Rock& Roll music really is. The music is full of high energy, up tempo beats and emotional gravitas that make the souls and hearts of the listeners race. I concede that LL Cool J would look a little awkward standing next to Alice Cooper, but I’m quite sure both artist would respect what the other does in the long run.

It’s about appeasing the masses and making the fans satisfied with the resulting product. Music is what it is: music. The categorization of music is what holds up the most barriers, it’s become denominational not unlike church on a Sunday morning. We idolize our music gods and stand firm on our personal beliefs of what a good song should be and not for what it really is. Maybe would should remember the joy that songs can bring from any artist if it’s good and celebrate together. We owe that to the legends who gave a treasure of memories and good times. So, let hip hop and R&B artists in with no trepidation, but with confidence that being honored is one of the greatest things we can do for one another despite our tastes and beliefs.

Trick Daddy Arrested for DUI and Drug Possession

Rapper Trick Daddy was arrested in Miami-Dade Saturday morning on a cocaine possession charge.

According to the police report, a Miami-Dade officer responded to a report of a driver hitting signs and running red lights in a dark colored Range Rover in the area of Southwest 128th Avenue and 42nd Street in Miami around 3:20 a.m.

When the officer approached the driver’s side, he saw that the driver “appeared to be asleep behind the wheel.”

Once he was awakened by a knock on the window, the man, identified by his driver’s license as Maurice Samuel Young — Trick Daddy’s birth name — told the officer he had left a club in Miami Gardens near Northwest 37th Avenue and 187th Street.

The arrest affidavit said that Young told the officer he had had about five drinks hours earlier at the club and that he was dropping someone off and heading home.

The report said Young had slurred speech, bloodshot, watery and glassy eyes and that the officer smelled alcohol on his breath. He agreed to a field sobriety test, which he could not successfully complete, police said.

Young was taken to the Hammocks District Station on 142nd Avenue. While there, police found cocaine inside a dollar bill while Trick Daddy was putting his possessions in a plastic bag.

Police also say he was wanted on a warrant for driving under the influence.

Trick Daddy was born 45 years ago in Liberty City. He was booked into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center around 7:30 a.m. Saturday.

His bond was set at $5,000 on the cocaine possession charge and $1,000 on the driving under the influence charge.

This isn’t the rap star’s first encounter with South Florida authorities.

▪ In April 2014, Trick Daddy was arrested and charged in Miramar with possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, possession of cocaine, and driving with a suspended license, a Broward Sheriff’s Office task force said at the time.

▪ He was also arrested in 1991 on a cocaine possession charge, carrying a concealed firearm and violating probation, according to a CBS4 report. He served more than two years in prison six years before the release of his 1997 debut album, ‘Based on a True Story.”

▪ He was arrested in 2003 on assault charges.

▪ He was also arrested on assault charges in 2003 for threatening to kill a man over a street basketball game.

His most recent album, “Finally Famous: Born a Thug, Still a Thug,” his eighth, was released in 2008, but it was not commercially successful.

In October 2019, Trick Daddy became the public face behind the new Miami Gardens soul food restaurant, Sunday’s Eatery.

That fall he also joined Trina as a morning host on Miami radio’s 99Jamz/WEDR. The music pair took over the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show.”

Young has submitted his bond, according to court records. He was released on Saturday and posted video from his visit that afternoon to Sunday’s on his Facebook page.
