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.

Snoop's Other Son Wants Some Shine

Snoop Dogg has a nine-year-old son outside his marriage and the kid wants to be on Snoop's reality show, so he and his mother gave an interview to Star magazine. Julian Corrie Broadus told the mag that he hasn't seen his father in five years but that, "I don't want to be an actor, I want to be a baseball player. But I want to be on the show to get to know my family." His mother, Laurie Holmond, told the Star, I asked him [Snoop] to start seeing Julian again. He sounded sincere but has yet to come by... Calvin needs to acknowledge him."

Ricky Romance Speaks

Sorry for the serious lack of posts y'all, but I'm still holiday vacationing with my fam. Anyway, Raz B's brother, Ricky Romance did an interview with The New Urban blog and says he stands by his original statements. Ricky told TNU, "I just got off the phone with DeMario (Raz B), and the apology tape is not real! Chris had people force Raz to read a script and coerced him into taking money. I talked to DeMario and the money will be returned. We want this done right. We're putting this message out there for all of the innocent kids who get abused and are then forced to be silent." He also said Chris Stokes and Marques Houston are long time lovers. Read the interview here.

Raz B Outs Chris Stokes As A Pedophile

You better watch these videos quick, cause you know they will be gone soon. Raz B from B2K calls Chris Stokes and Marques Houston's sister on the phone and confronts them about the abuse. It's sick. If you miss the videos click here to read a rumor we heard about last year.


Lil Kim's Ex Facing The Death Penalty

The Justice Department has given Brooklyn prosecutors the go-ahead to seek the death penalty against the ex-boyfriend of rap vixen Lil' Kim. Damion (World) Hardy, 33, the reputed leader of a murderous drug crew called Cash Money Brothers, faces lethal injection if convicted of ordering the brutal SoHo execution of a rival - a hit that also left an innocent bystander dead.
The alleged hit man, Eric (E-Bay) Moore, also is facing the federal death penalty for the Aug. 10, 2000, slaying of Ivory Davis, who was shot twice as he sat in his car outside Club NV at Hudson and Spring Sts. The mortally wounded Davis drove off and fatally struck a pedestrian, Swedish filmmaker, Johan Camitz.

Hardy was indicted on murder charges in 2005, but it's the U.S. attorney general who ultimately decides to pursue the federal death penalty. Hardy and Lil' Kim once lived together in her New Jersey mansion. He drove around in a Land Rover she gave him and the couple were believed to be engaged, a law enforcement source said.

Hardy, who served time for shooting at narcotics cops in Brooklyn, had a fearsome reputation at the Lafayette Gardens projects in Bedford Stuyvesant, where his crew controlled the drug trade, law enforcement officials said. In 2003, cops said he confronted rapper 50 Cent in a New Jersey hotel parking lot, sparking a gunfight after the rapper dissed Lil' Kim on the radio.
Hardy's lawyer claims he has undergone a religious conversion since those wild times, legally changing his name to Isa Ibn Jibril. He also is mentally ill, the lawyer said. Last week, a federal judge ordered Hardy to undergo a psychiatric exam to determine if he is competent to stand trial on federal racketeering and murder charges. "I am the Christ. I am the Messiah," Hardy ranted in court in 2004 after he was arrested at JFK Airport as he returned from a religious pilgrimage in the Middle East. "Do not be the one to go against the law," he went on. "Adhere to the law's command before I give you warning. A day that is drawing near. A day of grief and regrets. Boiling water will be poured over your heads."

Defense lawyer David Ruhnke wouldn't talk about Hardy's relationship with Lil' Kim or his mental condition. He also refused to say if Lil' Kim would be asked to testify at the penalty phase of the trial if Hardy is convicted. A representative for Lil' Kim could not be reached for comment. "He's become a very devout Muslim," said Ruhnke. "He maintains his innocence and the government does not allege that he personally killed any of the victims in the case."

DMX Rushed To The Hospital

Sources claim DMX collapsed at Sony recording studios yesterday and had to be rushed to the hospital. DMX, who had been laying low for a while, surfaced in this video last week which might explain his collapse.


Judge Nixes Remy's European Tour

Remy Ma's lawyer asked for her passport back so Remy could do some tour dates in Europe, but the judge said no. "Given the circumstances and the seriousness of the charges, and the fact that she has pending intimidation charges, I'm not prepared to let the defendant travel out of the country," said Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Rena Uviller. They say Remy could have made as much as $40,000.00 on a five city European tour and that she desperately needs the money because she hasn't been able to get much work since she was charged with shooting one of her friends and that she she's also being held up from signing a record deal pending the outcome of her case. Uviller adjourned the case until January 22nd, when the prosecution expects to have results of DNA tests on blood found on Remy Ma's clothes. Prosecutors want to see whether blood on Remy's clothes belongs to the girl who got shot.

R Kelly In Court Yesterday

R Kelly was scheduled to be in court on Tuesday regarding his five year old child pornography case, but got held up in Utah after his tour bus was pulled over for speeding and ordered off the road for eight hours because he couldn't produce any sleep logs for his driver. R showed up for court 20 minutes early yesterday but the judge ordered him back in court today, and is considering taking him off tour altogether. Oh, and a woman got arrested for taking a picture of R Kelly in court with her cell phone.

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.

Here's what she said to Vibe: “If you look at what Perez [Hilton] does - and I don’t advocate for Perez, you know, he can write hurtful things about a lot of people - but what he does as a man of color, as a Latino, is he never dogs Latinos, ever. He actually breaks artists on his website. They can go from “Who the hell is that?” to Number One on iTunes in a day, just from what he says. So he’s trying to uplift his own people. I mean, he dogs everybody else, but as a man of color, I applaud you. I can’t dog you for not dogging your own people. He never says anything negative about Latinos, ever, and I just wish that we had more of that kind of “raise up” mentality and pulled each other up instead of dragging each other down. Especially like… If I got arrested, say whatever you want to say. If I had kids and left them in the car while I partied, or I got out of cabs showing all my private parts, you have every right to dog me. If I came out and dogged my own people, kill me in your blogs. But don’t make things up! I do enough, and if you really got spies everywhere you’d know what I was doing, you wouldn’t have to make things up. And if you don’t know your facts, then just don’t print them.”

Plies Manager Caught With 36 Keys


Plies manager got caught with 80 pounds of coke yesterday. You know his ass is going down. According to the Tampa Bay Tribune, Plies’ manager, David Lee Gay Jr., was arrested in his home Tuesday night during a drug deal gone wrong with Eleazar Gutierrez-Castillo. Castillo had been arrested hours earlier trying to sell to five ounces of cocaine to an undercover cop and agreed to rat out Gay Jr in exchange for some leniency. Castillo told authorites that he and Gay Jr. had entered into an agreement to distribute cocaine and that from September 21st through November 12th, Gay Jr. had received and sold a half-kilo to a kilo of cocaine at least six times. Castillo said Gay Jr. paid him $6,000 for a kilo of cocaine and owed $8,000 more to “consummate the deal". According to a criminal arrest affidavit, during the meeting at his house with Castillo, Gay Jr. ‘grew nervous’ saying he thought he noticed cops in the neighborhood. Sensing something was wrong he backed out of the deal asking ‘Gutierrez-Castillo what he had done to wrong him.’ But it was too late. In addition to the 36 keys, police found a 9mm Taurus handgun, 10 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and $7,902.

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 ass? 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

Police arrested Brooklyn resident Anthony Taylor in Atlanta last week in connection with the murder of Fab's boy, Shamel McKinney. Police say Shamel, a member of Fab's Street Family crew, may have been trying to snatch a $10,000 dollar chain from Anthony's neck in a Manhattan night club. 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.

"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.

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.

Jay's Time At Def Jam Coming To An End?

The Jay Z getting dropped from Def Jam rumors are heating up again. Today in the New York Daily News they said contract negotionations are breaking down between Jay and Island/Def Jam CEO L.A. Reid and his boss, Doug Morris because, "He [Jay] wanted big, big money that was way out of sync with the realities of today's record business. People have lost count of how many times he's come out of retirement," the source says. "Everybody knows he's not around the office much. Everybody at Universal loves him, but they can't justify paying him the money he wants when so many people have been laid off." His contract is said to expire at the end of this month. Friends of the rapper, who last night was celebrating his 38th birthday in Paris, scoffed at claims that Reid and Morris had thrown in the towel.

Tameka Says

“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”.

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.
