No Charges For Brandy

Earlier this year R&B singer Brandy was involved in a multi-car, fatal accident on an LA freeway. At the time, stories were swirling that Brandy caused the crash and that she'd be charged with vehicular homicide or reckless driving or something and the husband and parents of the victim immediately filed multi-million dollar wrongful death suits against Brandy. Well, it turns out Brandy wasn't at fault and won't be facing any charges. The accident investigation showed that the woman who was killed caused the multi-car pile up when she smashed into the car in front of her [toxicology reports showed traces of Marijuana in her system] so all those lawsuits filed against Brandy will be dropped

In Mel B's World

Baby Angel needs her dad more than Phoenix Chi needs hers. Mel B's ex-husband, Jimmy Gulzar, filed suit against Mel because he hasn't been able to see his daughter, Phoenix, since Mel started the Spice Girl's world tour and took Phoenix with her. Los Angeles court Judge Robert Schnider ruled that Mel was fully entitled to take Phoenix, so Jimmy won't be able to see her until the tour is over.

Vick Co-Defendant Gets 2 Months

The man who provided prosecutors most of the information that led to Michael Vick's arrest was sentenced to two months in prison Friday for his role in the NFL star's dogfighting ring. Tony Taylor of Hampton helped establish Vick's "Bad Newz Kennels" operation and joined in killing dogs but later became the government's chief informant in the case, prosecutor Michael Gill said at Taylor's 10-minute sentencing hearing. "He was the most significant source of information in this case," Gill told U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson. "He did not hesitate in any way." Gill said it would have taken the government significantly longer to build a case against Vick and his three co-defendants had it not been for Taylor, who provided details of more than half of the "overt acts" outlined in the indictment.

Shut It Up Already Gabbie

Gabrielle Union continues her tirade against Black bloggers, this time in Vibe magazine. I really don't mind Gabby having her say, but her big upping Perez Hilton saying he doesn't EVER talk bad about Latinos is a flat out lie. Perez regularly dogs out Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin and others....

Wayne Has A Dream

XXL magazine asked Lil Wayne about the perception that he's over-saturating the market with his music, to which Weezy replied, "Darling, I don't care what nobody think. Talk to me like you talk to Martin Luther King or Malcolm X. You're not going to ask him about what he thinks about what somebody said about him. You ask him about his greatness, and his greatness only."

Foxy Still Being Foxy

"If they release her today, she'll be back in a week," said Geoffrey Davis, a family friend who has visited the rapper several times since she's been locked up at Rikers. "I love her, and I have her best interests at heart, but I think she needs clinical help with anger management," said Davis, an activist who runs a nonprofit, anti-violence organization in Brooklyn. "She has to deal with that attitude." I wonder what Fox did to make dude run to the press on her like that? And while she might not be getting rehabilitated, she is trying to stay fly. They say she wears Louis Vuitton and Gucci sneakers with her prison jumpsuit - and when they get dirty, someone brings her a new pair.

Man Arrested In Street Family Murder

Reports claim Fab's Street Family posse run a notorious jewelry theft ring, an accusation Fab denies. "I would like my fans and supporters worldwide to know how disappointed I am in some of the media for the misrepresentation and abuse of my name. I do not want the young people who listen to my music and watch my videos to believe that I am engaged in any illegal activities that would discredit my character."

Rocko's Groupies Gone Wild

The Most Access blog did a post about Monica's baby daddy Rocko's video shoot for his single "Umma Do Me" and a couple of his sideline hoes jacked the thread to talk about how Rocko and Monica ain't really together and how they be popping bottles with him every night and that Rocko don't sleep over at Monica's house and that the reason Rocko didn't go to Monica's baby shower was because they are parents only, not a couple. It's hilarious because you can tell they REALLY believe every lie Rocko ever told 'em. Click here for the drama.

"I'm going to beat his little butt when he gets to Jackson (Friday)," said Melton, who is a friend of the family. "I just saw him a couple of months ago in Las Vegas. He knows better than that.

UGK member Bun B had this to say, "While this nomination is bittersweet to say the least, I am thankful for the acknowledgement.

Remy Stuck With Additional Charges

Remember when Remy and her goons got caught jumping the boyfriend of one of the witnesses to the Makeda Barnes-Joseph shooting? With Remy already facing first degree assault charges, her lawyer tried to get the additional gang assault and witness intimidation charges dropped, but to no avail. "We were hoping that we wouldn't have to deal with those charges in this case," Remy's lawyer Ivan Fisher told reporters. "That [decision] makes it a longer trial by a significant amount." Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Rena Uviller ordered Remy to return to court Jan. 3, when a trial date for later in the month will be set. Remy showed up to court late, wearing knee-high, black, fleece-trimmed leather boots, a beige midthigh cowlneck sweater over black tights, a black jacket and a Gucci bag.

Tameka Raymond Says Black Women Don't Love Themselves

“We (black women) don’t like ourselves. If I were Hispanic, Usher would have the sexiest wife alive. If I were mixed, he’d have the sexiest wife alive. But he has a black girl, and it’s like, ‘She’s horrible and she’s ugly!’ “OK, maybe I don’t fit the cookie-cutter standard - 25 and a size two - but this is who he loves. There are women getting raped in Darfur, young girls being turned out every single day right here in Atlanta. We have bigger issues to worry about than two people in love with each other”.

R.I.P. Pimp C

Pimp C, one-half of the veteran Houston rap group UGK, was found dead in an upscale hotel on Tuesday. "It is with great regret that I must confirm that Chad Butler aka Pimp C, one half of the legendary UGK, was in fact discovered dead this morning," his publicist, Nancy Byron, said in a statement. "Manager Rick Martin is asking that everyone please respect his family and those close to him at this time and refrain from rumors and innuendo." Pimp C and partner Bun B were pioneers of Southern rap, and hit the mainstream with their cameo on Jay-Z's hit "Big Pimpin'."

Stephon Didn't Know

Sunday night when Stephon Marbury's father started having chest pains during the Knicks game, one of Stephon's kin folks instructed them not to tell Stephon. "Don't tell Steph," a relative said, according to a Knicks official. "Let him play." Sources said a relative told Knicks officials Don Marbury had a history of these types of episodes. Stephon, the second youngest of Don Marbury's seven children, didn't need that kind of distraction right now, the relative said. He played the entire game not knowing his father had died. A Knicks official said Marbury did not complain about being left in the dark about his dad's demise.

This Is An Easy One

I usually hate blind items because I can never figure out who they're talking about, but this one from the NY Daily News was easy: Which female singer - who has had the same unlikely nose job as her brother - has a metal brace up her schnoz to keep it from collapsing? The device was noticed by a stylist who had bent down to lace her boots.

Mychal Bell Pleads Guilty

Mychal Bell pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor battery charge that could see him released from a detention center in about eight months. Mychal Bell, 17, originally was charged as an adult with attempted murder in the beating of Justin Barker in December 2006. That charge was reduced before a jury convicted him in June of aggravated second-degree battery. An appeals court threw that verdict out in September and ordered Bell retried as a juvenile. Under his deal, Bell pleaded guilty to a juvenile charge of second-degree battery in return for an 18-month sentence, with credit for 10 months he already has served. Bell had faced being placed in a juvenile facility until his 21st birthday. Bell also must pay court costs plus $935 to Barker's family, testify should his co-defendants in the Barker attack stand trial, undergo counseling and be reintegrated into the school system, his lawyers said.

They say the Jackson's, including Michael, are planning a world tour but don't expect to see Janet on the bill. Sources claim, "Janet said she would be willing to participate in a few select shows next year, but Jermaine Dupri is holding her out of it. He wants Janet to go back in the studio and record another album, and he's also wary of having her be associated with Michael because he's gotten such bad press and is just freaky." With or without Janet, if they can get Rebbie Jackson to sing Centipede I am so there.

Sean Taylor's Half Sister's Boyfriend's Cousin Involved In The Murder

The details are starting to emerge in the Sean Taylor killing and story gets more sordid by the day. Apparently one of the killers is the cousin of the boyfriend of Sean's half-sister Sasha Johnson. The accused are the confessed shooter, 17-year-old Eric Rivera, 17-year-old Jason Mitchell, 18-year-old Charles Wardlow, and 20-year-old Venjah Hunte. Sean and his half sister Sahsa did not grow up together, but after he made it to the NFL, he bought his mother a $900,000 house and invited Shasha and his half brother to come live in it. Fast forward, Sasha has a party for her 21rst birthday at Sean's house Thanksgiving weekend and invited her longtime boyfriend Christopher Wardlow, cousin of suspect Rivera Wardlow, who brought suspect Jason Mitchell, who had cut grass for Sean in the past. According to reports, the shooting resulted from a burglary gone bad because the killers did not expect Sean to be home and shot him in the upper thigh after he surprised them at his bedroom door. The bullet damaged the femoral artery in Sean's leg, causing significant blood loss. Sean never regained consciousness and died a little more than 24 hours later.
