I was out so you get the juice via typed text versus my melodic delivery in “It’s Like That!”
So I was super shocked that Nelly's tour bus was stopped at the border patrol of Sierra Blanca yesterday, where police found a loaded gun, weed and heroin! One of Nelly’s staff member, Brian Kieth Jones, took the blame for the entire stash of: 36 small baggies of heroin, 10 pounds of marijuana and a .45 caliber pistol. (Sidebar: So you’re telling me, he was going to have a party all by himself?) But Nelly released a statement claiming to have nothing to do with the illegal activity. “It is my understanding a member of my staff made an unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials onto our tour bus that resulted in his arrest this morning, October 11th. Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board. Law enforcement officials in Sierra Blanca, Texas did not press charges against anyone other than that individual. Nelly was detained and eventually let go along with five other people who were on the bus. Sierra Blanca has been in the news a lot lately. It is the same place Willie Nelson, Armie Hammer, Snoop Dogg and Fiona Apple were recently arrested for drug possession.
It’s official: VH1 has dropped dime on the date on the premiere of the reality show for Jayceon Taylor aka “The Game,” and his straight-laced school teacher fiancé Tiffney Cambridge as they prepare to walk down the aisle in “Marrying The Game,” premiering on Monday, November 19 at 8:30. Remembered they cancelled their summer nuptials because he “wasn’t man enough.” I will be watching!
Really now? Did you know it costs roughly $25,000 to repossess and sell a rapper’s Lamborghini? Well, at least according to a Georgia bank, which is now suing Bow Wow for money it spent flipping his ride. SunTrust Bank filed the lawsuit against Bow Wow - real name Shad Moss - claiming he took out a $300,165 business loan, agreeing to 84 monthly payments of $4,730. Bow Wow fell behind last year. The docs show the bank repossessed the rapper’s Lamborghini Murcielago and flipped it for $161,000. The bankthen tacked on more than $25,000 for “repossession expenses.” Bow Wow still owes the bank $21,371 while he is also being chased down by a collection agency over a $283,000 judgment against him, stemming from a Ferrari he stopped making payments on. Sources close to Bow Wow dropped dime that his ex-management team caused money mess so he got a new team. Hope that BET check is good, too....
Janet Jackson isn’t the only one upset over a recent Vanity Fair article detailing the immediate aftermath of Michael Jackson’s death. Earlier this week, Janet threatened to sue over the article’s claim she held up Michael’s funeral until she got back the $40,000 deposit she laid out for Michael’s plot. Well sista LaToya Jackson has fired off a cease-and-desist letter to Vanity Fair. She denies the article’s claim that in the hours after Michael’s death, she was seen loading plastic bags filled with cash into a moving van. LaToya claims the article is “replete with misstatements of fact, false innuendos and defamatory insinuations.” She says accusations she stole large sums of money from Michael’s house are lies, and is demanding a full retraction or else she’ll sue.
In other M Jax related news, Dr. Conrad Murray’s lawyers have sent out ANOTHER letter to Los Angeles County jail officials, once again requesting for Murray to be moved. According to one of his lawyers, Murray has developed blood clots in his legs due to the cramped size of his 5-by-7 ft. jail cell, and recently had to be rushed to the hospital. He said: “[Murray's] being housed like a piece of veal. He can’t even do jumping jacks in his cell. The bed takes up three feet, and there’s a toilet in there too. It’s awful what they’re doing to him. His hair has turned gray. He’s down 20 or 30 pounds. He’s very gaunt-looking and has a hard time walking.”" A sheriff’s department spokesperson was like, NOT! The response? “He’s not dying in jail. People over at the jail did speak with him today, and he’s alive and receiving proper medical treatment. He’s receiving really good treatment in fact.”
Tongues are wagging J-Hud’s fiance David Otunga is allegedly tired of Jennifer dragging her feet with their wedding and is ready to call it quits. A source claims Jennifer promised David she would begin planning their wedding after William Balfour’s murder trial and when she chopped it up with Oprah, the couple spoke about planning their upcoming nuptials, which led many of us to think they had finally set a date. Rumor has it David is starting to believe marriage isn’t a priority for Jennifer and that if she doesn’t marry him soon it’s a wrap. Usually it’s vice versa, right? Nice to see the flip side of a brotha wanting to be hemmed up! No confirmation.
You remember Angela Stanton right? She’s the woman who wrote a book about RHOA Phaedra Parks and put her alleged criminal past of racketeering and insurance fraud all the way on blast in “Lies of a Real House Wife: Tell The Truth and Shame The Devil.” Oh but Phaedra put a suit on that butt and we haven’t heard from her until now. On twitter she blasts Deion Sanders of being unfaithful to Pilar, which we know, right? But peep this: she threw her own 18-year-old daughter under the bus, claiming Deion cheated on Pilar with her! He sure like’em young, huh? No word from him.
Stacey Dash got blasted when she publicly announced her endorsement for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. But guess who else is? Exiled rapper Shyne has now come out as a Romney supporter as well. Shyne can’t actually vote for the Republican candidate since he was deported from the United States in 2009 after serving a nearly nine-year prison sentence following a conviction for his infamous 1999 club shooting with Diddy.Since his deportation, Po has spent time in Belize, Paris and Jerusalem and he claims that President Barack Obama should allow him back into the country so that he can help quell the violence in inner-cities like Chicago. You ain’t voting for him so he may be like “Kick rocks!” No, the pres is too classy but better him than me! LOL
If you were wondering why Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa delayed their wedding, Wiz opened up to XXL and revealed they pushed their wedding day back so their baby can be at the wedding. He said, "There’s no date set yet. But we’ll probably get licensed and married before the baby’s born, and do a wedding afterwards because it makes more sense for the baby to be in the wedding than for her to be pregnant.” Amber said “Yeah, we definitely want our baby to be in our wedding pictures. And you know, being pregnant, I’m tired a lot....to have a whole wedding and planning it all out and the reception – I just don’t want to be sleeping when everybody’s partying at our wedding.” Plus she probably wants to don a skin tight dress on her day!
Speaking of weddings, did you see Keyshia Cole's? “Keyshia & Daniel: Family First,” debuted on BET earlier this week. But, while most of Cole’s family is on the show, many fans have noticed the obvious absence of her sister, Neffe Pugh, whom Cole has had a public feud with for years. She dropped dime,“The straw that broke the camel’s back was that she did not like the fact that me and Mom did the ‘Frankie & Neffe Show’ with Manny Hailey without involving her and she felt we shouldn’t have trusted him. We should have trusted her judgment.” She says while they love each other, they went their separate ways and though she’s focused on trying to rebuild their relationship, Keyshia is rebuilding her career and focused on her family hubby Daniel and son. She missed Keyshia’s wedding because she “ wasn’t properly invited”. The actual wedding ceremony was in Vegas but she was only invited to the wedding/taping in Hawaii two days before the wedding for her and her two daughters - no hubby husband and five kids. I’m with you Neffe. In the meantime, how do you like the her new reality show? I hope she is nicer to her hubby....he seems like a sweetheart.
2 Chainz, has a new video out, only it’s related to the non-partisan Respect My Vote! campaign. The initiative was launched to help dispute the misconception that all ex-felons automatically lose their right to vote. Good for him! Not so good? Mr. Jacky Jasper heard word that 2 Chainz is cheating on his baby momma Kesha with Nicki Minaj - ever since they recorded “I Luv Dem strippers”. No confirmation but daggg….This news comes just weeks after 2Chainz was accompanied by a seemingly pregnant Kesha, and their four-year-old daughter, to the BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta. The couple is reported to be tying the knot soon.
My eyes! My eyes! A day after Justin Bieber tweeted that a camera and laptop containing “personal footage” was stolen from his tour manager’s office during a tour stop in Tacoma, Wash., a nude picture leaked on twitter was supposedly of Bieber. (His camp says that’s not him.) The naked pic- which has since been taken down- showed a naked bottom half-frontal-view a similar-looking bird tattoo on his hip in the exact same spot the Bieb has on his body. However, fans have been quick to note the ned dude’s bellybutton isn’t the same as Justin’s and his nipples don’t match up. How do you all know that? Too much.
Actress Taryn Manning, best known for her roles in “Hustle & Flow” and “8 Mile,” caught an assault charge today for allegedly beating her makeup artist in at New York hotel. Taryn is accused of punching her 23-year-old makeup artist in the face, kicking her in the face and torso, scratching her, grabbing her by the hair and slamming her against the floor and wall, and choking her. Dag. She pulled a pimp move from the flick!
Oh have mercy. Folks are hot because Mike Vick got a dog! On Thursday, he confirmed that he is now a dog owner, after someone noticed a box of milk bones in a photo he tweeted.“I understand the strong emotions by some people about our family’s decision to care for a pet,” Vick said in a statement. “As a father, it is important to make sure my children develop a healthy relationship with animals. I want to ensure that my children establish a loving bond and treat all of God’s creatures with kindness and respect. Our pet is well cared for and loved as a member of our family. This is an opportunity to break the cycle. To that end, I will continue to honor my commitment to animal welfare and be an instrument of positive change.”
